Snap, crack, scratch, peel. There are plenty of sounds you may hear when furniture is damaged, but unfortunately, not much can be done to prevent it. Furniture is integral in our lives, but it isn’t built to last forever. That’s where restoration comes in to save the day!
What Is Restoration
Restoration is an extensive process that begins with hand stripping of the piece. It’s followed by a thorough rinsing and cleaning to remove any oils, residues, or old finish. Every detail of the restoration process is done carefully to ensure the integrity and strength of the piece is maintained. Once the piece is cleaned, it is examined to replace or repair any broken, weakened, or missing parts. Then it’s time to rebuild and paint. When the paint or stain has dried, several coats of pre-catalyzed lacquer is applied to give increased durability and clarity to the wood.
Why Choose Restoration
The first reason to choose restoration is the obvious need for it. Furniture can look worn over time, paint can chip or peel, and seat cushions can deflate or become lumpy. Restoration solves all of these issues in one fell swoop. One of the many perks of restoration is the opportunity to update the stain, paint, or fabric of the original piece. As tastes, styles, and times change, choosing a new color can give you the opportunity to completely update the look of your home or business. Even just restoring and refinishing a few pieces can entirely change the tone of the room. Don’t replace, renew the pieces you love.
