ALMOST ALL OLD WOODEN FEATURES CAN BE RESTORED. WE HAVE YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE IN BRINGING INDOOR AND OUTDOOR WOOD FEATURES BACK TO LIFE. OUR STRIPPING TECHNIQUE PRESERVES THE INTEGRITY OF THE WOOD AND ALLOWS FOR QUALITY RESTORATION. WE REPAIR AND RESTORE WOODEN ELEMENTS OF ALL TYPES OF WOODEN FEATURES. IDENTIFYING AN OLD FINISH, IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FINISH IS, YOU COULD END UP DAMAGING A PERFECTLY GOOD FINISH OR WASTING YOUR TIME ON A TECHNIQUE THAT WON'T WORK. THIS KNOWLEDGE IS ALSO ESSENTIAL IN REPAIR WORK; DETERMINING THE FINISH IS ESPECIALLY HELPFUL WHEN YOU'RE MATCHING ONE FINISH TO ANOTHER. FOR RESTORATION PURPOSES, THE ONLY DISTINCTION THAT REALLY MATTERS IS THE DIFFERENCE AMONG THE THREE BASIC NATURAL, OR CLEAR, FINISHES: SHELLAC, LACQUER, AND VARNISH. THE PIGMENTED FINISHES, SUCH AS PAINT OR ENAMEL, ARE EASY TO IDENTIFY. THE ONLY OTHER FINISHES YOU MAY ENCOUNTER ARE OIL, WAX, AND PENETRATING SEALERS, IDENTIFIABLE BY TOUCH AND THE ABSENCE OF A HIGH GLOSS. THESE FINISHES CAN BE RESTORED ONLY BY REAPPLICATION. ON MOST FURNITURE, A CLEAR FINISH IS ONE OF THE BASIC THREE: SHELLAC, LACQUER, OR VARNISH. BEFORE YOU DO ANY WORK ON THE FINISH, YOU MUST IDENTIFY IT. FIRST, TEST THE FINISH WITH DENATURED ALCOHOL; RUB A LITTLE ALCOHOL ONTO AN INCONSPICUOUS FINISHED AREA. IF THE FINISH DISSOLVES, IT'S SHELLAC. IF IT PARTIALLY DISSOLVES, IT'S PROBABLY A COMBINATION OF SHELLAC AND LACQUER. TEST IT AGAIN WITH A MIXTURE OF DENATURED ALCOHOL AND LACQUER THINNER; THIS SHOULD COMPLETELY DISSOLVE THE FINISH. IF ALCOHOL DOESN'T AFFECT THE FINISH, RUB A LITTLE LACQUER THINNER ON AN INCONSPICUOUS FINISHED SPOT. IF THE AREA TURNS ROUGH AND THEN SMOOTH AGAIN, THE FINISH IS LACQUER; IF THE FINISH CRINKLES AND DOESN'T GET SMOOTH.
