    I can���t say enough good things about Greg! He was very responsive, professional, did excellent work and went above and beyond to repair the bookcase! He is very flexible with scheduling and reliable. Can���t wait to hire him for my next job!

    Cather's Furniture
    We were extremely pleased with the workmanship. I did not rate for responsiveness because we were in no hurry to have the work done due to other ongoing remodling in the our house and so we told them to take their time. Nevertheless, when I went to get it, they did a superior job and were standing by to help me wrap it (it was raining) and get it loaded safely in my pickup truck. The piece is an antique oak mantel that is very complex. It had been previously refinished with a polyurathane and had some damage (screw holes and some broken wood carving) everything was stripped bare, repaied and refinished with high quality materials. All the previous damage was repaied and made invisable unless you know exactly where to look for it. We were very impressed with the work and would recommend Cather���s very highly. The picture shows the mantle where I will be putting it, but I have not yet installed it.

    Very well for the chair repair. I had an issue with the finish on the side table because it apparently wasn't completely "cured" (or whatever it might be called) and they didn't tell me to keep things off of it for awhile. The bottom of candleholders and lamp that I placed on it made marks that I cannot get off.

    Excellent. The owner is a very nice man, quite enthusiastic about his work. The chairs were delivered today, earlier than I was expecting them to be ready. The chairs look gorgeous; he did a magnificent job.

    Levitsky Furniture Repair LLC
    Mike Levitsky's work is amazing! Classic example of "you get what you pay for." He charges top dollar but you will have a treasure when the work is complete. The pieces he restored for my mother were in terrible shape. She is thrilled with the result knowing they will be kept in the family. He is a perfectionist and takes great pride in his work.

    Cather's Furniture
    On day of estimate/pickup, I made it VERY clear that my main reason for hiring and paying for service was to have the table extension mechanisms repaired, or replaced if not repairable. If that could be done, I would have the whole set refinished. Table was returned not repaired (only tightened up a little, but still not secure.) Table was returned to shop for more work on this, but only thing done was some moving of the wood braces that the mechanism was made of.  It is still unacceptable. I was told by Mr. Cather that my dining set was not high-quality furniture, and they were not able to do more with it.  I wish they had told me this before charging this much money to have it refinished and repaired.  I could have bought a whole new set for the money I paid.  (It is solid oak, and has held up very well for over 36 years.)

    The replacement caining is not well done--was loose at the bottoms right away because cut too short and not firmly attached at bottom of chairs. Staining does not match oak finish--is much too light, but they said this was best they could do.

    Staining of oak dining set and coffee table is lighter than original and no longer exactly matches buffet that is part of the set (but was not refinished because it is still in perfect condition.)  A drawer from the buffet was taken to shop for matching.

    Table top that was perfectly flat before, is slightly warped so the extensions do not fit flat near the sides when installed into the table top. Also the extensions were taken back in to the shop for redo, since stain color did not match table top and finish was different (not as shinny.)

    As for timing, my furniture was picked up by Cather's 9/12/14.  After several calls to them, it was finally returned 11/6/2014 (almost 2 months.) Table extensions were taken back to shop at that time for correction.  By 11/21/2014 the extensions were not returned, so I called, and I also continued to complain about the table extension mechanisms. They agreed to pick up the table on 11/24/14 for more work, but it was not picked up and I did not even get a call to cancel.  On 12/11/2014 I called to arrange for myself to pick up the extensions and I asked for some refund.  But it was arranged for the table to be picked up 12/15/2014.  I was away over the holidays, and the table was returned in January.  That is when I was told that nothing more would be done and that my furniture was not high quality. 

    The Cather's people were all friendly and nice from the beginning, and I have told Angie's List over and over that I did not want to leave any feedback on this business, but they persist in asking me almost every week, to leave feedback.  So here it is.

    My advice to anyone planning to get their wood furniture refinished, is to just buy something new.

    Furniture Medic Ron Purvis
    Mr. Purvis charges by the hour ? rather than the job ? to repair furniture. When I made an appointment with him on the phone,  I asked him what happens if he is unable to repair the furniture.  He indicated that the hourly charge would have to still apply.
    He arrived promptly, early even.  It took some time to determine the exact cause of the problem with my sofa (basically, the seat was very loose and felt like it was "hanging on by a thread"). Remarkably, three of the four bolts that held the seat to the frame had either broken or come loose. He was not sure if he had the needed size of bolt. He found a couple of (used, I think) bolts in his truck that were close enough in size to work. He installed them and stapled the dust cover back on the bottom of the sofa.
    I wrote him a check for hundred dollars and was surprised when he informed me that that was not sufficient because he had been here longer than an hour.  Neither of us remembered exactly when he arrived at my house.  I wrote him a check for $50 for an additional half hour.  In my opinion, it should not have taken as long as it did to make this fairly basic repair.
    Earlier that day I had had a yard work crew of four men work three hours or moreto remove all the leaves in my front and backyard, mow it, and make it look immaculate. They charged me the same thing that Mr. Purvis did for considerably more work.
    To his credit, he did advise me on how to repair the drawer of another piece of furniture.
    I will think twice (three times actually) before I hire anyone who works by the hour in the future.

    Cather's Furniture
    From initial estimate, the communication and repair was flawless.  Furniture was repaired and returned on time as promised.  Quality of work outstanding.  I will use Cather's again.

    Excellent workmanship and professionalism.   Very customer related and willingly explained the process and his recommendations for successful outcomes.   Would highly recommend and have already discussed future jobs with Jason.   Five stars (great provider).

    Furniture Repair by Weathersby Guild
    I called Jason Migliore because I needed the leg on my dining room table repaired (it came loose whenever we tried to move the table).
    He examined the table and pinpointed the problem, and explained to me what was wrong, how he could fix it and what it would cost. He proceeded to efficiently and thoroughly fix the problem. I mentioned an arm that had broken off a bench and he repaired that, too, on the spot.
    All the while he was very careful to cover the floor to protect from any scratches or dust. He was competent, polite and professional.
    I would definitely recommend this company wholeheartedly, and will probably use them again myself.
