A SUPERB RESTORATION – LOOKING AS GOOD AS NEW!

At Snelling Associates we have been undertaking furniture repairs in the Redhill area for many years now.

Although we are based in beautiful Shere, we have many clients who bring us their furniture from Redhill and Reigate.  I think this is because they realise that we provide not just a high quality service but also one that is backed up by years of experience.  Indeed, I doubt that you can find other restorers able to provide you with such a personalised service with craftsmen who take such a deep interest and pride in their work!

Of course, you may be asking yourself about what type of furniture repairs in the Redhill area do we tackle?

Well, to illustrate the wide range of furniture that we restore and repair, I took some photographs of the furniture that I currently have awaiting repair in our workshop.  As you can see, what we deal with encompasses a wide range of items – with an often bewildering array of different problems.  These extend from stains and burns through to water damage, woodworm and impact problems (where an item has been dropped or hit by something).

Meanwhile, we frequently have to make completely new turnings or filigree to replace that which has been damaged or lost.  This is a part of our day to day work and so do not be distressed if your item of furniture is missing a decorative piece.  More than likely we can make another piece to match in with that lost – and we can also replace damaged or lost veneer and re-colour and French polish your item of furniture so that it matches the rest of the piece.

Needless to say, we have a very good understanding of the importance of patina and of preserving the integrity of furniture or objets d’art – so that they retain their value.  This is an essential part of a furniture restorer’s work: the recognition that you are doing more than just a repair and that a critical part of the work revolves around enhancing the value of a piece of furniture beyond just making it serviceable!
