Often, there is a shocked silence when we explain our services and the costs to our customers. Following are some things to consider when making the decision to repair or replace:
- Is the item part of a set of matched pieces?
- Do you love the piece?
- Does the item have sentimental value?
- Can the item be replaced with a comparable new piece?
- Are you willing to settle for a new piece of lesser quality?
If a damaged nightstand can be repaired and retain a bedroom set in its’ entirety, the bedroom set maintains a higher value.
In the case of dining chairs, the cost to repair/reglue most likely will exceed the cost of a moderately priced new chair. However, restoring the damaged chair will maintain the matched set.
Love the Piece
We occasionally have a customer who insists on spending a fortune to restore a piece that has no real value, except in their eyes, only!
We’re honored to help them indulge their passion, no questions asked!
We can help to keep a piece functional without a full blown restoration.
It’s nice to have family pieces around that actually serve a purpose and we can tailor a restoration to fit your needs.
The furniture you need to replace may not have a comparable example available in today’s market.
Furniture with quality workmanship, classic or unusual style and custom-made pieces are all candidates for restoration rather than replacement.
Remember that our shop offers comprehensive restoration services, including a full upholstery shop. We want to help you find a solution. Contact us today.
