FAQs

Should I repair or replace my furniture?

When trying to decide whether to replace or repair a specific piece of furniture, you must consider several factors. You must gauge the value of the furniture, not only in monetary terms, but according to sentimental value as well. 

For instance, Grandma’s rocking chair may not be all that expensive to replace, but it may have extraordinary value to you if she used it to rock generations of your family to sleep over the years. If you have no sentimental attachment to the piece, simply compare the cost of repair with the average replacement price.

How much does it cost to refinish furniture?

The average price to refinish furniture is $595. The total depends on the type of furniture you are having refinished, such as:
