Answers to our
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What are my options for refinishing our case goods and public area furniture?
1. You can choose to handle your furniture refinishing needs using your engineering staff or touch up vendors who provide short term solutions.
2. You can replace some or all of the pieces of furniture at a high cost.
3. You can choose Case Good Refinishing. We provide like-new, long-term refinishing work for roughly 6% of the replacement cost.
Q: How much does your refinishing cost, and are there any other costs?
Our standard refinishing costs run between 4%-8% of the replacement cost of the case goods. This typically includes standard hotel furniture pieces such as:
- Entertainment unit
For rooms or suites with more furniture, the pricing is adjusted upwards. To get a quote fill out the form on our Contact Us page and we’ll get back to within 48 hours.
Q: Why don’t stain pens, stains, and one-step polys that other vendors and engineers have used last very long?
Stain pens have their uses but they have virtually no bonding capability. On their own, they can temporarily color a scratch, but that color will soon be wiped away. On high-wear edges like the front edge desks and nightstands, where housekeeping wipes and cleans every day, this solution will quickly get wiped away.
Stain solutions are even worse than stain pens because the pigments in stains are meant to be applied to raw wood. Since finished furniture is sealed, stain pigments can only lie on the surface and can be easily be wiped off. Also, applying stains to furniture usually does not improve the overall look and covers the piece in dark splotches of mismatched stain color.
One-step polys rarely match the original stain and inevitably begin to flake, peel, or get “tacky” to the touch within a matter of months. It’s a short term solution, and not a good one at that.
