Homebridge treats every furniture repair and refinishing project with tremendous care, paying close attention to the small details that distinguish an exceptional repair from a merely acceptable one. From minor repairs to complete restorations, your furniture is in trusted hands at Homebridge.
Homebridge offers a full range of furniture repair services, including fixing dents, scratches, and nicks; repairing damaged drawers; fixing broken chair arms or legs; and repairing warped or damaged wood.
In-home repair services are available upon request.
Homebridge uses a detailed 23-step process to refinish your furniture. The process begins with carefully stripping the paint and finish, then sanding and repairing the furniture. Furniture is stained, sealed, and lacquered, with a gentle sanding occurring between each step. A final coat and buffing complete the process.
Stripping paint and finish off furniture is the first step in the refinishing process. Homebridge uses an overflow system to gently strip the finishing, enabling us to get into every nook and cranny without needing to dip the furniture in a vat.
Stain, Paint, and Lacquer
Choose from a wide array of finishes and paint options to make your furniture look brand new. A professional spray booth provides a controlled environment free of dust and outside elements for painting, staining and lacquering furniture. This allows us to provide you with the highest quality finish.
Antique Furniture Restoration
Homebridge carefully and extensively restores antique furniture, including armoires, dressers, dining tables, bedroom furniture, grand pianos, desks, and more. Our experts meticulously restore these family heirlooms, remaking veneers, repairing trims, rebuilding drawers, replacing damaged or missing parts.
We also restore many unique items, such as antique toys and musical instruments, including harps, banjos, and guitars.
Let us give your classic furniture pieces new life by transforming them to fit your lifestyle. Whether you want to resize an antique bed for a modern mattress or convert your grandparent’s old radio cabinet into a wine rack, Homebridge can restore the beauty of your old items and give them new functionality.
