Valparaiso, Crown Point & Michigan City Furniture Refinishing
The team at Furniture Werks has countless furniture refinishing jobs to its name. We will carefully remove old finishes and accumulated grime, repair any damage, and finally stain and seal your furniture to give it new life.
Our Furniture Refinishing Process
We use a waterless stripper to ensure that we do not damage the wood or raise the grain. After stripping is complete, we lightly sand the wood to remove contaminants and open the grain to help it soak up the finish. We then touch-up any remaining nicks and dings.
Furniture Stain, Seal & Finish
Stain can enhance the grain of the wood, revitalize washed-out color, or completely change the color of your piece for a whole new look. The number of coats applied depends on the type of wood in your piece and the desired finish. We can work with a color sample, or you may choose to come in and work with us as we stain the piece to see the results directly. We then apply sealant to penetrate the wood and give the finish something to bind to.
To seal and finish, we use a catalyzed lacquer. Catalyzed lacquer is 33% more durable than conventional lacquer and dries more quickly than shellacs or varnishes. We control the final sheen of the finish of your piece by using a flattening agent, which allows us to produce everything from a matte sheen to a high-gloss finish.
Catalyzed lacquer is unique in that it can be repaired unlike other conventional finishes, which may chip and require the piece to be refinished.
