Furniture Repair

Furnture RepairPeople ask us all the time whether they can use the furniture we repair for them without having to worry, and the short answer is definitely YES !.

Our repair work is not only guaranteed to last but it will also look good, so good in fact you may not be able to find the repairs.

As furniture gets old the everyday wear and tear will slowly but surely loosen joints, it is at this point that a thorough regluing job is in order, if postponed, the next thing that will occur is breakage.

And just because the glue bond between joints has given way it doesn't mean the piece of furniture is not of good quality, it is only a matter of glue dehydration and when done properly ,having it reglued (by us) will put your piece back into service for years to come.

Some repairs involve the manufacturing of new pieces, and we are fully equipped to reproduce just about anything related to furniture, from spindles to legs, or missing arms or missing rails, no problem, remember our motto "If it's wood we can make it or repair it ! ".

Some of our services include: antique furniture, wicker, cane, wood, scratches repair. Contact us if you need a specialized repair.
