In 1969, Douglas G. Howard set out to solve this dilemma: how can you eliminate blemishes in wood finishes and restore the original color and luster without removing any of the existing finish? Unable to find an answer at his local hardware store, he went to work in his garage to create his own product. His goal was to make something that would be much more than a surface treatment, yet nothing like a stripper or a refinisher.
The key was to develop a formula that could penetrate the finish with stain, and leave the original finish intact. The end result was Restor-A-Finish. Because Restor-A-Finish preserves the original wood finish it also helps preserve its authenticity and value, whereas stripping the finish may literally strip the piece of its value. That’s why for over 40 years, Howard’s Restor-A-Finish has been a standard in the antique industry.
Restor-A-Finish was Doug Howard’s first in what would become a complete line of wood care products. Since their beginning, Howard Products has continued to come out with innovative new products to enhance their existing product line. They now carry over 18 different products to help consumers with most of their cleaning and polishing needs, including five natural products that contain vegetable-based ingredients.
