Our Story

A Company Built on Quality

In 2005, master woodworker Chris Wratten started Christopher’s Woodworks to provide customers with high-end, custom-designed woodwork. He then launched a commercial, touch-up division to serve hotels in the Virginia Beach oceanfront market.

After Chris joined forces with Robert Wallis, the company grew exponentially—expanding into the mid-Atlantic region and developing the custom techniques and products used by Case Goods Refinishing today. Over the last 10 years, Case Goods Refinishing has become a reputable leader in the refinishing business nationwide, serving clients from Alaska to Florida, including the Caribbean.

To this day, Case Goods Refinishing prides itself on being privately owned—not a franchise. All our in-house technicians are individually trained employees so we can ensure uniform, quality refinishing services. We are proud to be defined by professional quality and craftsmanship and have stayed true to Chris’ vision from years ago. We look forward to addressing your wood refinishing needs with our expertise!

What People Are Saying

Case Good Refinishing was excellent to work with. In my opinion, our product was in desperate need of replacement however the team with Case Good Refinishing brought our vanities back to life! They look as great as they did the day they were installed. The team was professional and coatings/chemicals used left no odor so we were able to sell the guest rooms the same day! I definitely recommend them and will use them again!

We were in the middle of refinishing our case goods when Covid-19 hit. Case Goods Refinishing adapted to the dramatically changed circumstances and finished the project with professionalism and a smile. They worked well with our staff, especially when we were short-staffed during the coronavirus season. When I have refinishing needs in the future, I will be calling CGR.

Case Goods Refinishing came in and did what I’ve never seen in my many years in the industry: they gave us truly like-new furniture. I’ve used touch-up vendors before—Case Goods Refinishing is different. You won’t be disappointed.
