Terlin Millwork operates as an independent division of Terlin Construction with its own clients and staff.

Terlin Construction is able to take advantage of the close proximity of the millwork shop to control project schedules, costs and delivery timetables – a significant value add to construction projects.

Millwork Process


Each project begins with a design drawing. We coordinate with talented designers - with budget, application and project schedule in mind - to bring our client's vision to life.

Material Selection

Materials are selected for each element of the project to complement the final space and project vision.


Through a comprehensive scope review and analysis of the project, we can provide time and cost saving options to meet your budget needs. Once designs are approved, they are reviewed by the Terlin Millwork Project Manager and detailed estimates are provided.


Our shop drawings are tailored to communicate with designers, architects, and clients. We believe that our drafting department is one of our biggest assets. You can rest assure that what you see on paper is what you will see when your project is complete.


Millwork projects can be very complex, and no one likes avoidable mistakes. Although approvals are a part of each step in the process, a final approval of all drawings, materials and estimates is required to move a project into production.


Our craftsmen vary the method of construction based on the needs, challenges and opportunities offered by each job. Our facility utilizes the latest in computer assisted equipment to provide the highest level of quality control. Our fabricators are some of the best in the business, and their attention to detail is unmatched.

Quality check

We know that a defect or error in assembly is costly. At Terlin Millwork the shop foreman executes quality checks multiple times throughout the assembly process and all completed products are then inspected by the Millwork Project Manager prior to being prepared for shipping and installation.


Our installation teams are professional, courteous and attentive to our client's needs. Our team of installers takes pride in the installation of all of our jobs. This ultimately gives you a final product that you can be happy with for many years.


After installation is complete, Terlin completes a walk-thru with the client and/or consultant to ensure that there are no deficiencies and/or to address any issues.


Terlin offers a standard 1 year warranty on all in-house millwork.
