Furniture pieces passed down from one generation to the next are loyal guardians of family history and traditions, so their sentimental value usually goes far beyond any monetary worth. Nevertheless, the market price of antique furniture is also very high as it is rare and unique, a solid evidence of the superb craftsmanship of old. But even though the exquisite old pieces can successfully withstand the test of time, the long years of constant wear and tear eventually leave their mark on the delicate surfaces. Oftentimes, expert repair works are required to rescue an antique piece – in this case, it should be handled with great care and adept skills in order to restore its original beauty without losing its ancient look and feel.
Inadequate restoration and repair can drastically affect the value of an antique – advanced equipment and modern refinishing techniques easily erase the marks of time sealed on the surface, but they may as easily ruin the grain of the wood as well. Furniture Medic by Bob Llorente provides antique furniture refinishing and restoration services in Friendswood, TX to repair broken or worn out antique furniture, using only simple tools and harmless chemicals. Our highly trained and experienced craftsmen have adopted a skillful individual approach towards each and every furniture piece appropriate for its particular condition and the desired outcome of the restoration process.
Why Furniture Medic by Bob Llorente for your Antiques
