Touch up work is more than a furniture marker!
Touch up is a general term that we define using the following criteria;
- Work that can be performed on site
- Work that involves filling minor gouges, nicks and scratches and blending them using a variety of stain and coloring options before they are sealed with new finish applied to the damaged area versus the entire piece
- Repair of chips, scratches and general ‘wear and tear’ or site specific damage
- Minor structural repairs as these typically require color adjustment around area that has been repaired
Touch Up is a category of work that applies to a wide variety of situations. Touch up would describe a repair to chipped or lightly gouged edges of a table or dresser top. It might describe scuff and scratch marks on the feet of furniture caused by moving damage or by your vacuum cleaner. Touch up is the solution for most ‘wear and tear’ that you see on furniture caused by accidents of by people simply using their furniture!
Touch up repairs typically include:
- Scratches and Gouges
- Compression damage
- Veneer chips or missing veneer
- Scuff marks and scrapes
- Minor Structural repairs
When we approach touch up repairs, we have lots of options from which to choose. Our technicians are extremely well trained and experienced working with a wide variety of fillers, adhesives, stains, finishes and other chemicals. Each product has been designed to excel in a specific situation – your repair technician knows which products and procedures will achieve the most appropriate, best looking and longest lasting repairs.
Whether we’re filling light dents in the edge of your dresser, addressing that spot where your daughter spilled fingernail polish remover or removing light scratches from the top of your dining table or nightstand, let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you.
Minor structural repairs fall into this category as there is usually the need to ‘touch up’ around where the joint was loose or broken. Regluing dining chairs, repairing a break on the inside of a sofa or love seat or repairing an antique table base are all typical minor structural repairs that will likely require some touch up in order to finish the job.
Our technicians are expert at understanding how your furniture was designed and assembled. By understanding how your furniture was made, how it will move with changes in temperature and humidity and by observing how you use it in your home or office, our technician will recommend the most appropriate method for repair.
Because we begin by listening to our customer, asking the right questions and observing how the item was built or finished, we feel that we are the best choice to provide you with a solution for your furniture needs.
