Stripping and Refinishing

Stripping and Refinishing is often referred to as ‘the original recycling’. Stripping and Refinishing is a very common process that is used for a wide variety of reasons in the furniture industry. It can be used to correct damages, restore worn finish, repair water or fire damage or to change the color or sheen of the finish.

There are so many questions surrounding stripping and refinishing that we want to try to answer a number of them for you here.

What is the process of Stripping and Refinishing?
Will stripping damage my furniture?
Will refinishing reduce the value of a piece of furniture?

There are a couple of very typical scenarios that we find where refinishing is a very good option;

  • An item has been damaged in a move or through a fire or flood and refinishing will put them back into pre-loss condition.
  • The pieces are in disrepair but are heirlooms that have been handed down. Refinishing will put them into better condition, ready for full use and ready to be handed down to the next generation
