"If you're interested in putting a fresh face on your kitchen, DO NOT consider the services of
-Look. In September of 2014 my husbandand" I entered into a contract with
-Look Cabinet Refacing. We explored various options for updating our kitchen and decided the most cost effective method would be to veneer over the existing cabinet structure and install new doors and drawers. We met with
of
-Look and signed the contract for $13,725.00 with $1,725.00 down. Work was scheduled to start in early February at the latest and was to last a week. There is a significant amount work to be done to prepare for the workers. All our existing cabinets and drawers need to emptied and we needed to decide how to deal with meals during this time. We were expecting a confirming phone call in the week prior to the anticipated start time. We didn't get one. We called and were told that due to bad weather and employee illnesses the job start date was moved back to the middle of March. Okay, good thing we called. So March 15, or thereabouts, rolls around and the job starts. At that time, the estimate to complete the job went from 5 days to two weeks. Hmmm, okay. Work goes well until the first bit of veneer went up. Wrong color. At that point we were given a discount of $1,000.00 for our inconvenience. Four weeks later the new, correct veneer and doors showed up and work began again. However the they had ordered the wrong drawer fronts. So we waited another four weeks for the correct drawers We're now six weeks into this project from when it was supposed to start and still have at least four weeks to go. After the correct drawers showed up they were missing two so we had to wait for those. Three times over the course when the project actually started we brought to the attention of the installers defects in workmanship that we felt should be corrected. We insisted on visit a by the owner,
, to review our concerns. In every case we were assured that the problems would be corrected. We received a bill for the balance with all of our outstanding issues unresolved and other unfinished work. On or around June 5, 2015 we had our last face to face contact with
-Look.
showed up, without calling in advance as we had requested so we could personally air our concerns about the workmanship issues. He was fixing some of the defects we had previously noted. We went through the existing, remaining problems and were told by the him to "…fix then yourselves". When we said we would need to discuss a discount he said "I'll call my brother". When I asked who is brother was and how he figured into this job I was told, "He's my lawyer". Lovely. I have to assume at this point he purposefully didn't call to avoid us pointing out all his mistakes. If we hadn't gone home early he would have been in and out. He was disrespectful and dismissive of our concerns. We had an independent kitchen and bath installer come and review the work and give us his opinion. we've documented more than 20 individual defects in workmanship. Most involve the veneer being shoddily installed. In several places it wasn't glued down and could be easily caught and pulled away. One drawer had been dropped on something and was cracked on the bottom. It was installed anyway. Screws attaching fascia over the sink went in at an angle and cracked the board. The three shelves under our peninsula were done so poorly even
-Look agreed and replaced them. The replacements were not up to snuff either. Two doors on the upper cabinets on the north and south walls open at a 90 degree angle to the cabinets on the east wall. They rub. Within three weeks after
-Look's last visit we've had four doors fall off because the screws stripped out of the cabinet woodwork. Our guy has given us an estimate to remediate the problems to the tune of $5,600.00. Ouch. So let's go look at the contract and see what it says about workmanship. Under the "Worry-Free Warranty" we have the following: "Should any materials and/or workmanship prove faulty within one year of installation,
-Look will, upon notice from the Owner, correct such faults at no additional cost. Installation labor not included." Well obviously notification doesn't work. You know what does work?
-Look's lawyer/brother. If we
and
we owe
-Look's lawyer's fee too. So, they have every incentive to let the legal process take its course. Most people look at the cost of a law suit and shell out the money to avoid additional legal expenses. Your lawyer and theirs. That's our story to date. We have refused to pay the balance on the theory that if we can't get a warranty fix before the first week is out, we probably aren't getting one any time within the warranty period. So,
told his brother on us and we now have a mechanic's
on the house. We're waiting to see where that goes.
-Look's and
's whole attitude is that whatever they do, however poorly done, is proper workmanship and you as the client can't question it. If you do question it, tough, pay up. And if you don't pay up let's not mediate, let's go to court.

also checked stability of other three legs and picked up" and delivered the table as promised. There were no unexpected surprises and we were satisfied with his work. We would use him again when necessary

Furniture Refinishing & Repair

Many families have learned the hard way that antique furniture inherited from the grandparents can't be treated as roughly as modern furniture with its polyurethane finish. Here are tips on what you can do about older furniture that has become damaged. You can make some minor repairs yourself or hire a local furniture repair expert.

They took 30 year old furniture and made it look brand new. They were willing to come two hours out of their way. They knew the right things to do back at their factory. The outcome was spectacular. It was well worth every penny. I couldn't have bought new furniture at that cost and have the same quality. I would absolutely use them again.

Due to the small size of this company, it took awhile to begin the work due to other projects the company had ahead of mine. Once the work started, it was completed in a reasonable amount of time with an outstanding level of care and expertise. While the work was in progress, I was always kept informed about progress and next steps. Other than the long wait to get started on my project, I was very happy with everything the company did on this project. The company's work is pricy but, if you want the absolute best quality work, this is the company for you.

It didn't go, because he never called me back so I could ask my questions. The last time I called, the voicemail did say that if I was calling to schedule an appointment, to email the company. Well, I wasn't ready to do that because I had a couple questions. So, I went with Leather Pros Inc. and would use them again.

Jannine’s work is first class. She restored the broken legs of two different
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
wood chests of drawers, the chipped tops of a side and of a dining room table, and fixed a hole on the back of another chest. Jannine’s restoration work is perfect. The pieces will not show any signs of previous damage. We were lucky to find her on Angie’s list.
Jannine is very caring, punctual, keeps in touch by email and phone and she does the work herself. Her work is art. We would definitely use her again. It was a pleasure meeting her.

I purchased a pair of antique wooden sculptures on a trip to
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
in May. When I received them one of them was broken completely in half! I selected
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
based on their great reviews here on the List and also because their location in Stamford, CT is where I spend a lot of time.
Upon meeting Mr.
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
(the owner) and seeing the repair shop I knew in minutes that I had found the right place.
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
carefully unpacked the sculpture and determined the repair was possible and quoted me a very fair price. He is a true craftsman and is a collector of many things so he has a deep appreciation of art, antiques, and history. His shop was exactly what I expected; filled with old tools and many pieces of furniture in various states of repair.
Several weeks later I picked up the repaired sculpture and it was flawlessly repaired.
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
even sent photos before I picked it up showing how he had carefully clamped and did the work. After it was repaired he sent more photos too!
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
is a true craftsman and gentleman of the highest order. His quiet manner and expert knowledge of his craft is a treasure. He performs true restoration and repair of fine old things in the tradition of the old masters of furniture I believe. I have the highest regard for the services he offers and am so happy to have found him to repair my item. I now consider him a friend and fellow collector.

Civiletti did a superior job. This is the third job that
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
has done for us so we already knew that she was a
perfectionist.
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
is the consummate professional and she has this down to a science. She explains exactly what she is going to do, gives you a checklist (in writing) of everything she is going to do, including anything that needs to be done prior to the job. There is no confusion on the project and you know exactly what to expect and when to expect it. She schedules a specific time that the work will be performed and she is punctual and meets the time frame.
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
gave us an estimate of the project with a min/
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
price (in our case, a $500 range). She did run into some additional difficulties with our job (as can happen with this type of work), but the final billing was still within her original estimate. The work is excellent, professional, and without any surprises. Well, the only surprise may be how truly good the work is. It is top notch, high end, and professional work.
Also note, if you are redoing your kitchen, as we did, refinishing the cabinets to a "new" condition costs significantly less than buying new cabinets. In our case, the cabinets were structurally sound they just had 20+ years of being used in a kitchen.
We highly recommend the

Civiletti and the

. She does not disappoint. We have already emailed

for a fourth job to refinish a kitchen table that has great sentimental value to us. It was my parent's table and they are no longer with us. It needs refinished and I have absolutely no hesitation to let

perform her craft on this irreplaceable piece of furniture.

I had two very old wood buffet cabinets that were family heirlooms and were in need of restoration. I contacted
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
from Angie's list to get a price quote. I was able to send photos via email and
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
provided me with an estimate. He was professional, answered all my questions. I also thought the price was reasonable given the work that needed to be done. So we set up a time for him to come pick them up, he was on time and gave me a reasonable time frame of when the work would be completed. Once the work was done, he called to set up a time for delivery, and again was on time. Both cabinets turned out to be absolutely beautiful. I'm really pleased with how they turned out. I didn't really know what to expect after I selected the color, especially since I was trying to match one of the cabinets to some existing
Modesto Furniture Refinishers Provider Name Locked
room furniture ,but it's a great match. They did really good work and would certainly use them again.
