Howard Products, Inc Restor-A-Finish

It appears the vendor is trying to replicate Howard Products’ Restor-A-Finish Wood restoration spray. The two products utilize the same spelling, with the exception of hyphens. Restor-A-Finish ($9.98 for 16 ounces) is significantly more cost-efficient than Restofinisher ($29.95 plus $3.95 for shipping).

 Nanoagic NanoSparkle Car Cleaning Cloth

The vendor promotes the NanoMagic NanoSparkle Car Cleaning Cloth, which is also rated an “F” by BBB for violating its Refund Policy.

Afterword – RestoFinisher Scam

Is RestoFinisher a scam? There is no evidence to back these claims. However, BBB has rated the RestoFinisher vendor an “F” for failing to resolve customer complaints. The vendor also promotes the NanoMagic NanoSparkle Cloth, which has also earned itself an “F” BBB rating.

Online visibility is limited to paid reviews.

It is important to not mistake RestoFinisher with Howard Products’ Restor-A-Finish. The products are not connected in any way. There is no evidence the product meets the vendor’s wood restoration claims.

The corporation addresses are FedEx, Davinci Virtual Office, and a residence. These are not corporations, but virtual addresses. It is unclear if the vendor resides at the residential address. This red flag is enough to cause suspicion among consumers.

  1. I think your site has saved me massive aggravation.
    My hubby works with wood, and I have some gorgeous wood pieces. I adore my elm coffee table.
    I will get some Restor-A-Finish instead!

  2. Thank you for posting this. I was just about to purchase a bottle when I decided to research more information about the company and product. You saved me money and prevented frustration.

  3. Would you or the company behind Restofinish please state the number of ounces in a thirty-dollar spray bottle, as well as give an example to show how many bottles a typical restoration project would require?

  4. This product is nothing more than a very poor polish. It does not restore or enhance the finish. It does not mask or hide minor scratches,wear or even smudges. My blunder for thinking this product would perform as described.
