About Us

A glimpse at our history

How It All Began

A vision turned into reality

Located in the historic lumber and mountain town of Revelstoke, Lortap began with a vision from the Revelstoke Ski Patrol and Paul Jones, a member of the ski patrol. Lortap, which is patrol spelled backwards, was founded as a millwork company by Paul Jones in 1979. The mission has always been to provide custom millwork services with a focus on offering customers the highest quality products and exceptional customer service.

Our company is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) compliant, which means we’re committed to the use of environmentally responsible building materials and products wherever possible. Lortap is an active and respected member of AWMAC and has been nominated for award recognition on several key millwork projects. We continually invest in updating manufacturing equipment, engineering software and personnel training. Our skilled artisans provide the highest quality craftsmanship and a large line of customized products throughout Canada. In 2017 the shop expanded from 19,000 sq. ft. to 30,000 allowing Lortap to continue to create and provide quality products to our customers. Lortap has always focused on delivering quality products at fair prices and maintaining integrity in all we do.

Our Studio

Design meets innovation

At Lortap we know how important it can be to see and touch different materials when you’re looking to renovate your home. We know it’s a big decision and there can be a lot of money involved which is why we built a studio with those things in mind. At the studio, our designers will discuss plans for each room you’re renovating, and then guide you through material options.

We work with all types of wood species, making it even easier for us to custom build your dream design. Some of the different types include fir, beech, birch, alder, walnut, oak, cherry, maple and hickory. Once you’ve decided on your cabinets and have viewed under cabinet lighting solutions and integrations options, it’s time to look at counter tops. There are many options when it comes to choosing a counter top, including our in house made laminate and butcher block options.

At our studio you can also go through the showroom and see our custom door styles, which can be painted in any colour. You can also look through our handle styles to find the right fit for your home improvement project. We offer Thermofoil doors, textured melamine and laminate options. By coming to the studio you’re able to look through our various door styles and profiles, choosing from options like slab, shaker, beaded, raised panel and applied mouldings. We also showcase Ceaserstone, Cambria & Hanstone at our showroom, and work closely with our trade partner Toppa Stone.

Home is where the heart is, and we want to make sure your home is a place you look forward to coming back to at the end of every day. That’s why in addition to offering a large showroom for our clients to see materials firsthand, we also have a 3D design option. Once everything is picked out, we can take you on a virtual tour of your project, so you can see for yourself exactly how well everything comes together. Our reputation for quality millwork is built on the heart and soul we put in to each project.
