HOWARD PRODUCTS, INC.
Howard Products was founded in 1969 with Restor-A-Finish as its first “Flagship” product. Restor-A-Finish was the idea of Douglas G. Howard when he was unable to find an answer to the question: “how can you eliminate blemishes in wood finishes and restore the original color and luster without removing any of the existing finish?” So Douglas G. Howard set out to answer this question and went to work and developed his very own product; “Restor-A-Finish”.
Today, Howard Products offers a wide selection of antique restoration and fine furniture care products. These products are being manufactured with the same tradition of quality that HOWARD customers have come to expect over the past 50 years. Products for wood care, kitchens, leather & upholstery, metal care, and chalk-style paint.
At Howard Products our mission is to enhance our customers living environment through the development, manufacturing, and marketing of niche antique restoration and fine furniture care products. To achieve this goal, Howard Products offers a full line of the highest quality polishes, waxes, and restorers available. Since 1969, all of our products have been manufactured with the same tradition of quality that HOWARD customers have come to expect. Restor-A-Finish was our first product and the idea of Howard Products founder, Douglas G. Howard. Today, Howard Products continues to pursue new and creative ideas that have the potential to make any home a beautiful place to live.
For almost 50 years, Howard’s Restor-A-Finish has been a standard in the antique industry. Because Restor-A-Finish preserves and restores beauty to the original wood finish, it helps preserve the antiques’ authenticity and value, whereas stripping the finish may literally strip the piece of its value. Restor-A-Finish penetrates faded lacquer, shellac, and varnish finishes to bring back the original color and luster. It restores the depth of grain in wood finishes, going much deeper than temporary “scratch cover” products. Restor-A-Finish penetrates and permanently restores most wood finishes without removing any of the existing finish – this is why it is very popular for antiques. Restor-A-Finish maintains the original “patina” of an antique finish, maintaining its character and value as an antique.
