Antique furniture can hold a lot of value in both monetary and sentimental terms. Whether it is a family heirloom or similar piece of history, it is important to keep it in good condition. Due to the extremely old age of the items in question, they can easily become damaged and worn out. This is important to consider when attempting any restoration efforts. At Furniture Medic by MasterCare Experts, we provide antique furniture restoration services to breathe new life into the antiques of Geneva and St. Charles, IL residents. Our technicians are highly skilled craftsmen, and know a great deal about the unique requirements of antiques. We have the capabilities and skill sets to utilize specialized and minimally invasive restoration techniques.
There have been several qualifications set over the years that determine what exactly makes a piece of furniture an antique. Beginning in 1966, it was established that items 100 years old, or older, would be considered antiques. However, in 1993, NAFTA set the bar higher. The agreement dictated that pieces must not be changed by over 50% from their original character. We understand this at Furniture Medic by MasterCare Experts, and do everything possible to restore your furniture’s original character, thus increasing its value as an antique. The minimally invasive techniques that we employ are a major reason why we are able to do this.
