answered the phone promptly when I called him and was able to answer my questions regarding the repairs - unlike other places I called that either did not call me back, or never showed up for the scheduled appointment. I emailed ...more him a picture of the tear and he was able to quote me a price over the phone. He explained that since the broken thread/seam was on the seat of the chair there was additional labor involved to take the bottom of the chair apart, completely remove the leather, re-sew the seam and then put it all back together - but this would be the "right"way to fix it. We made arrangements for him to come and pick up the recline the next day. He returned the chair to me in a reasonable amount of time, the chair looks good as new and I couldn't even tell where it had been fixed and he even re-stained a spot on the arm of the chair where something had been spilled and removed the color. He quoted me a reasonable price to have the rest of the living room furniture re-stained, which I'll be being doing.
I would highlight recommend this company for any of your upholstery needs. "

"I have had possession of this table for 20 years & didn't use it & only dusted/polished it. Made the decision to start using it & called
. Every call/ e-mail was handled in a kind, professional, direct manner. ...more They accommodated my timeline. Table picked up & refinished & delivered back in beautiful condition. The owners are nice people who obviously enjoy their work & do excellent work. Very pleased with the whole experience and how often does that happen? Thanks so much! "

, is fantastic and very gifted at repairing/sewing these very difficult splits without having to take the seats out and replacing covers (which is extremely expensive). After he finished, all of the seams that he sewed looked as new. We had a 3 inch tear in one of the backings and he was able to patch the split ...more and then colored to match the color of the seats -- clearly exceeded our expectations.
We had used Ceative Colors several years ago on some other areas that had broken loose and they have held perfectly. The same technician (
) did that repair also.
The work was done at our house/dock and took a little over three hours.
Note: We had checked with several boat upholstery shops and they indicated that the seats could not be repaired without taking the seats out of the boat and then taking the covers off to be sewed. "
"To sum it up in one word . . . AMAZING!!! I am extremely pleased with the work
did and will definitely use him again in the future. I HIGHLY recommend him for any type of furniture repair/restoration job. His work is not only impeccable but he's very courteous and responsive. He worked me into his schedule in a short ...more amount of time, and took a piece of furniture that was too big (due to the decorative piece in the center) and cut, carved and painted it so that it not only fits but looks exactly as it did before I brought it over to him. The delivery guy asked him if he had even worked on it yet LOL. Absolutely amazing work
"Five stars - wish I could give 6 - Grant was wonderful - extremely punctual and courteous - did exactly what he said he would do on time and on budget !!! Wow - and on top of that did a great job - THANK YOU
!!!!! I would recommend them to anyone and will use them again if I need to - Great job - well done !
inspired table. I just can't say enough great things about
, the owner, is the most talented wood worker I have ever worked with. He made sure exactly what I wanted ...more and had the pieces CNC'd. He even made mock ups to show me before making the cherry originals to make sure it was what I wanted. I had made a design of a table that I wanted for our banquette.
was able to take the drawing and make it come alive. The number of finishes he puts on are really good and perfectly smooth. I would say a better finish that the Amish furniture I have. He told me he has built a lot of items for
, individual pieces, custom pieces and built ins. Highly Highly recommended. He had our projects done is just a couple of weeks. He's really a super guy to work with. "
"Over the last several months I had communicated with
, through text and phone regarding the project. It was not until about four or five months had passed before I realized I was never going to have the modified gazebo I was looking forward to, nor was I going to see my money, or
, ever again!!! Our last ...more phone conversation on May 15, 2014,
agreed that he needed to return the money, and I agreed to installments of $500 each, until all of the money was returned. It has been two months since that conversation, and I haven't heard or seen anything. I do not believe I will ever see any of this money. It's a terrible lesson to learn and an expensive lesson. I had no idea
was not a trustworthy person!!! He had already done business and personal projects, and had a pretty good income from the money he was paid. There was never a hint!!! I wish I had seen the review posted here on Angie's List, I may not be out my hard earned $2000.00. My husband and I want to pursue Small Claims Court, but after reading the other review of a customer that did
him, now they are out more money for the Complaint filing fee, the
's fee and Small Claims Court costs.
's a real good talker. don't be taken in by his gift of
!!! I hope that one day
will realize what he has done and will not be able to live with the fact that he stole other people’s money. That makes him someone he doesn't admire. The irony!!!
"During an interstate move in April-May 2014, four pieces of my furniture were damaged: On one side of my dining room table, the skirt was completely broken in two; two dining chairs had scratches on the wood; and a drawer handle on an antique chest of drawers was broken. On a Thursday, I called
and Furniture Repair and made arrangements ...more for them to come to my home the following Monday to inspect the damages and give me an estimate for repairs. On that Monday morning, they called and asked to reschedule the visit for Tuesday, which was fine with me. Mrs.
and her chief restorer arrived early on Tuesday, inspected the damaged furniture, and gave me a repair estimate of $485.
Later that day, I submitted a copy of the estimate, photos of the damaged pieces, and a completed claim form to the moving company. About a week later, I received approval of the estimate and my request to hire
for the repairs. I called Mrs.
, shared the good news with her, and arranged to have her pick up the furniture 4 days later, on a Tuesday. Mrs.
and her associates arrived when promised and took the furniture to their shop. On Thursday of the following week, Mrs.
called to say they were ready to deliver the repaired furniture. They did so that afternoon.
I was very pleased about how everything went. Mrs.
and her employees were consistently professional, friendly, polite, and punctual. The quality of the repairs was excellent. I couldn't even tell which skirt on the table had been damaged and repaired! I wouldn't hesitate to hire this company again.
I am not rating the price charged ($485), as I didn't get estimates from other businesses and thus am not able to compare
's price with prices that may have been charged by other similar businesses. "
"I purchased the Angie's List deal on May 25, and Wood Doctor picked it up on June 23. The work was completed, and delivered on
16 as promised.
also helped me reassemble the legs and drawer unit. The desktop looks brand new.
Wood Doctor removed the stains, refinished the top to its original finish, ...more and used a polyurethane sealer to help prevent staining in the future.
My wife and I are very pleased with how the work turned out, so we will use Wood Doctor in the future and recommend them to our friends and neighbors. "
"I contacted them THREE times (2 by phone; 1 on the Facebook page) and have yet to receive a response. I'd love spend money with them, but I guess they don't need the sales. Thought about buying their "deal". Glad I didn't now; I'd be out the $$
