Our History

Legacy Pre-Finishing, Inc. is the continuation of 40+ years of pre-finishing history. Around 1970, McClure Lumber Company in Charlotte, NC purchased a pre-finishing machine and opened a stain line to coat cedar siding. In 1974, McClure Lumber employee Richard Sherrill purchased the equipment and started Riverside Machine Staining in Mt. Holly, NC. Riverside was known throughout the Southeast U.S. for producing high quality affordable pre-finished cedar and pine siding for wholesale and retail lumber distributors. In 1999, Riverside moved to Troutman, NC and became Northlake Pre-Finishing. Sherrill retired in July 2005 and sold the factory & equipment to a large national lumber distribution company. Legacy Pre-Finishing was incorporated in December 2009, and in February 2010, Legacy Pre-Finishing, Inc. purchased assets and inventory and opened as an independent pre-finisher at a new location in Troutman, NC.


Legacy Pre-Finishing, Inc. offers value-added siding and trim products to the custom home industry and its many distribution channels. Products include: Cedar, cypress, and pine; hardwoods; LP Smart Products; Cedar Valley & Shakertown shingle panels; Hardie, Plycem / Allura (formerly CertainTeed Weatherboards), & Nichiha fiber cement siding; Miratec & other composite trim products; individual cedar shingles; & custom timber-frame packages. If you are looking for custom wood patterns or hard to find products, call us and we will find what you are looking for.

Among the myriad of beautiful custom homes pre-finished by the preceding companies were also many outstanding commercial jobs such as: The Billy Graham Library, The U.S. National Whitewater Rafting Center, The Northlake Mall, and more. Legacy Pre-Finishing, Inc. has shipped pre-finished materials from coast to coast and internationally. When contractors have discussed complicated installations, risky coating applications, or other coating related concerns on landmark construction projects, lumber industry professionals have felt secure offering pre-finished products and trusting the professionals who built the foundation that became Legacy Pre-Finishing, Inc.

Company president, Jonathan Myers has over a decade of coatings industry experience servicing the Southeast U.S as a Factory-Finish Coatings Rep for Samuel Cabot Stains; managing the "North Charlotte Pre-stain" for The Contractor Yard/ Pro-Build; and distributing commercial construction restoration products for Guaranteed Supply Company. He achieved PQI (Paint Quality Institute) certification while at Cabot, and also attended WRCLA Cedar School in British Columbia, gaining extensive knowledge on cedar and wood coatings technology. This background has made Legacy Pre-Finishing, Inc. a resource for coatings product-knowledge and wood solutions - even beyond its pre-finishing services.
