Dirk Riccardelli, owner of FinishFX, Inc. has over twenty years of experience in the world of decorative finishing.

Dirk is often referred to as the "Faux Finisher to the Hollywood Stars"!

As the "green" building trend continues to grow, more and more architects, designers, and builders are striving to create environmentally responsible structures that are healthy places to live and work. FinishFX, Inc. stocks green products from various manufacturers from around the world. We are constantly searching for new and exciting products that add color and texture to your world in an environmentally responsible way.
