Do you have broken, tired, out of style
furniture and you're not sure who to call?
Have you been looking at your furnishings and noticing a lot of wear and tear? Maybe some pieces are broken, missing parts or just plain tired looking and out of style? Maybe you have gone shopping and come to the conclusion that most of the furniture that is made today, does not compare to the quality and craftsmanship of the cabinet makers of years ago. When you do find furniture that seems to be better quality, they all have shockingly high prices! What to do? You like your furniture, but not in its present condition. What about having it refinished? Who do you call? Who can you trust to do restoration on your furniture without getting ripped off? You may have noticed that choosing a furniture repair and refinishing company isn’t easy. Why? Because there is a lot of misleading advertising, confusing claims and simply bad information.
Hi, this is Margery Smith and Rita Wagner from The Strippers! We’ve been in the furniture refinishing business for almost 30 years and it still upsets us to hear and see so many people getting bad advice and even ripped off!
DON’T GAMBLE WHEN CHOOSING A FURNITURE REFINISHING COMPANY!
With all the hundreds of thousands of pieces of furniture that we have restored for our clients, we are always shocked when we see “short cuts” that have been applied to once quality furnishings. Sometimes the results have made the furniture very expensive to repair, un-repairable, and or greatly decreased in value. Our experienced advice to you is, “Don’t gamble when choosing a furniture refinishing company!”
CONSUMERS GUIDE ON FURNITURE REFINISHING
How do you find a qualified, competent, professional furniture stripping, finishing and repair company in Southern Ontario? We sincerely suggest you start by reading our specially prepared Consumers Guide on Furniture Refinishing. Having the correct information is a good start to know what qualities to look for and what tricks to avoid.
After years of closely working with our clients, we have compiled seven free reports to help you select the right professional refinishing company to work with you on your next furniture restoration project.
MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT FURNITURE REFINISHING
There are many misconceptions about furniture refinishing. Many people think they have Antiques, when they really only have good quality vintage furniture. How do you know if you have an Antique you ask us? Another common fear we hear from many new clients, is “Will refinishing my antique furniture lesson its value?” In our Consumer Guide, you will learn what qualifies as an antique, when it is okay to refinish an “antique” and when not to. If you have inherited your furniture, then sometimes the sentimental value outweighs the market value.
Over the years we have noticed that many refinishing inquires start with the wrong questions. Asking for a price and expecting a quote over the phone can lead to a wrong decision in your choice of a Professional furniture refinishing company.
When you insist on a “ball park quote”, most Professional Refinishers suspect that you treat your furnishing as expendable and don’t really care if you get shoddy workmanship. Hopefully for you, that is not the case.
Other situations you ask us about are the white rings on table tops or faded tops on coffee tables. See our Consumers Guide to learn how to know “When to Strip and Finish” or when a “Touch Up” is all you need.
All lot of you ask us about dip stripping and sanding furniture. How do you know which stripping method is being used, and which one is the safest for your furniture? See our Consumer Guide to find out the only safe way to strip your family treasures.
