Chair Strip & Refinish (caused by water damage)- Furniture Repair in Albuquerque
The 70’s style solid wood dining set had years of scratches and was recently also water damaged (after the apartment above our customer’s had a flood that leaked through the ceiling). In an effort to restore these retro style family heirloom chairs to their former glory they needed a partial strip and refinish on all the damaged areas (chair backs and seats) and the legs also needed to be cleaned and touched up to match. As you will see in the photographs Mark sanded back the chairs to bare wood to remove the damage and then color matched the stain and finally sealed the chairs with multiple topcoats. Mark also repaired a dent to the side of the table on-site in the customer’s home that occured when the table was moved during the water damage clean-up. It was a pleasure to see this unique set restored!
Our customer was very pleased with the work that Mark did and left the following review on the “Tell FM” review site:
“Anyone looking to trust a family heirloom like ours to someone for restoration needs three things: respectful service, responsive communication, and confidence that the work will be done right. Mark provided all three. We’re tremendously happy with the work he’s done.”
