The ACI Process

  1. We meet with you to discuss what you’re exactly looking for. Our expert staff will talk with you about different manufacturers and types, so we can figure out what you want.
  2. Substrates are discussed, and we talk about colors, the look and feel and other aesthetic components. We give you our Color Chart (click here to see our colors) to match what your preferences.
  3. You and an ACI staff member identify the product you want, what colors you want where and more.
  4. We take you to our showroom, and, after you look around and find what you like, we begin production.
  5. The order is placed. The product is then acclimated to the installation site’s specific climate, and we ensure it’s not affected by moisture content. It’s then dried and ready to be coated.
  6. We apply the appropriate two coats of paint.
  7. The factory painted product is packaged in a specialized manner. We then wrap and band it and it’s ready to be picked up or delivered!
