Professional Wood Stripping & Refinishing

If you have wood furniture that was built with quality and has stood the test of time due to its solid nature, it’s worth hanging onto it by extending the life through refinishing. Whether you have an antique cabinet, a contemporary table or a whole set of bathroom or kitchen cabinetry, you can save thousands of dollars in replacement costs by repairing and refinishing the piece(s) to restore them to their former glory.

In some cases, the wood finish may be damaged beyond the point where simple refinishing would do the job. That’s when wood stripping becomes necessary as an added step before the refinishing and restoration can take place.

Refinish Virtually Any

Sometimes this process entails wood stripping, where we have to remove any existing finish to bring the wood back to its bare state. Then we can apply a new finish to the wood, complete with repairs to blemishes as well as pains or stains that provide a fresh aesthetic.

frequently asked questions

The term upholstery describes the type of fabric and padding that make up the coverings of chairs, sofas, and other types of furniture. To upholster a piece of furniture refers to the physical act of stuffing or covering furniture with padding, fabrics, and cushioning .

The process of reupholstery is used to remove old fabrics and covering off of furniture and replace it with new material to revive an older piece of furniture. When the structural foundation of your furniture is completely intact but the exterior is worn, damaged, or stained, reupholstery is a great alternative to reuse that piece of furniture and to give it new life. You can choose to stick with the same style or you can choose a completely new aesthetic for your furniture piece.

Reupholstering a couch can take anywhere from a couple of hours to an entire day. It can also take up to several weeks depending on the design, the type of material, and the size of the furniture piece. 

Keep in mind that how long it takes to reupholstery furniture can vary significantly. Our expert reupholsters can provide you with an estimate after evaluating your furniture. Contact us today for a quote!

It depends. Reupholstering is often the solution that requires less time, money, and hassle – especially if it’s in good condition.

If you want a different sized piece of furniture and your current furniture is in poor condition, then it might be in your best interest to buy some new furniture.

Furniture with quality fabric can last anywhere from 7-15 years. Leather sofas can also last considerably longer than fabric sofas.

If you experience “sinking in”, fraying, and hear creaking when using your furniture, it might be time to consider getting it replaced. The longest lasting and the most durable type of material for furniture is synthetic microfibre. It is tightly woven and provides a powerful layer of protection for your furniture.



Yes. If the existing fabric on your furniture isn’t darker than the new fabric, then you can reupholster right over the existing material.

A combination of vinyl or acrylic coated polyester and 100% cotton are the best fabric options for outdoor furniture. These materials are very waterproof and are able to withstand extreme fluctuations in temperatures.
