Structural furniture repair services take priority when refinishing home furniture. We recreate a solid frame with reliable hardware and provide stabilization so that your refinished piece is fully usable. We remove old, worn glues and replace them with our own glue resistant to stripping agents for an ageless hold.
Each step of our preparation process is coordinated to minimize damage and maximize the effectiveness of our restoration.
1. Stripping – Our hand-strip flow-over system preserves the integrity of your furniture's wood without bombarding it with caustic solvents. The flow-over system places your piece in a stripping tray, where a master craftsman brushes your piece with a stripping agent to slowly, gently slough off layers of old finish. Our stripping agent is also selected to preserve urea-formaldehyde glues common among valuable antiques. We rinse the stripped piece with a custom mix of water, oxalic acid, and a mild bleach to even color and draw out minerals that cause discoloration.
2. Steaming – The natural power of steam allows us to carefully pull out nicks and dents without having to sand through them. The heat and moisture from the steam help the wood expand naturally and, once dried, leaves the surface extraordinarily smooth.
3. Stopping – Drawers and doors are fitted so that they function gracefully. We inspect and repair slides and glides, then fit leaves and detail the piece to revive its natural beauty. All sides of the piece undergo minor repairs, including the inside of drawers or boxes.
4. Sanding – Any flat surfaces, including inside surfaces, are block-sanded, a hand-sanding process that employs an elongated block equipped with grade-customization sandpaper. The block sanding method eliminates the unevenness associated with machine sanding.
Our home furniture repair services experts brush on a base stain to bring your piece to its preliminary color. We fill in imperfections with a sanding sealer that prevents splitting, cupping, bowing, and warping by preventing the absorption and release of moisture. If needed, we'll apply additional coats of sealer to protect fine, grainy woods such as walnut and mahogany.
To create brilliant color, we pigment the wood filler and apply aniline dye, known for its depth and clarity. Aniline dyes help shade entire pieces or just individual areas. The finishing touch is a hand-rubbed pre-catalyzed lacquer topcoat that offers water and acid resistance.
