Better Than New...
Heirlooms and other fine antiques are priceless and deserve the best of care and treatment. The old furniture designs, joinery and materials have stood the test of time and are far superior to most of what is being made today. Even after severe damage from many years of daily use, neglect, sunlight, grit, grime, dust, moisture, wax buildup, dry air, and sometimes abuse, water, fire or smoke, painting over or improper handling and storage, any piece can be restored. Whenever possible, Saliba takes great care in making repairs while preserving and protecting valuable original intact finishes. However, it is often necessary to perform comprehensive restorations to achieve the desired results. This often includes but may not be limited to the following:
The Perfect Sleeper
- Extractions (improper repair hardware like nails)
- Stripping (hand stripping only)
- Deep cleaning
- Bleaching (for black and other stains)
- General Repairs
- Replications/replacement parts/reproduction hardware/glazing, etc.
- Re-fabrication and reassembly
- Structural, functional and cosmetic enhancements
- Filling (open grain, damage and imperfections)
- Restoring patina
- Top coating
- Final finishes (traditional and/or synthetic as intended)
- So, you found that perfect piece at a flea market, estate or garage sale, or antique shop, and you want to make it perfect for that special space. Saliba will bring back the original beauty and integrity to any piece no matter how badly distressed. Finders Keepers
