The best long-term value to your home comes from using quality materials and the latest in building technologies. Northshore Millwork, LLC adds quality craftsmanship into the mix. Fine hand craftsmanship may cost more than mass production, but you’ll see the difference every time you open a well-crafted cabinet, pass through a high quality door or walk into the perfect room. Northshore Millwork, LLC was opened in 2007 in Mandeville by a family who has been in business in Louisiana since 1900. They manufacture custom millwork including trim, cabinetry, doors and windows. “The business was started based on a desire for quality craftsmanship and millwork in the area, and it is currently undergoing one of the largest expansion projects in St. Tammany Parish,” says Julie Diefenthal Philippus, the company’s vice president and general manager.
