The Furniture Repair Process Explained

Furniture repair is the process of taking a piece of furniture that has received damage and restoring it back to a condition that allows you to enjoy it again both in terms of comfort and style. Repairs jobs can vary considerably from the removal of a simple watermark, scratch or dent right through to the repair of a worn corner. On top of cosmetic repairs, we also offer to work on more structural or mechanical type repairs too.

These include re-glueing chairs, loose veneer, re-building drawer runners, replacing worn webbing, re-building bed rails, straightening warped wood, re-building loose table slides. The list is endless.

Vital to the long-term health of furniture, we must make sure that each piece is structurally sound before we carry out any work. A stable structure prevents you from experiencing any discomfort and breaks in the future. How do we do this? It starts with a process called ‘stripping’ where we strip back all materials and fabric from your piece of furniture until we only its core components remain. At that level, we can make a diagnosis of the level of repairs required. Sometimes, no repairs are needed at all, and we can just replace the linen with something new to give a fresher design. However, we may need to repair various elements to ensure stability such as issues with the feet to prevent wobbles.
Who likes a chair without back support? We certainly don’t! To make sure that everyone you welcome to your home has a comfortable experience, we make sure that your back and bottom have the ultimate feeling of support, we give your furniture a complete corrective support structure. It’s part of our exemplary upholstery service that we achieve the highest standards of comfort so we make sure that when you sit down on your piece for the first time that you can notice the feeling of stability.
The padding in your furniture is what makes it feel comfortable so when it starts to feel worn, saggy and uncomfortable – that’s when you know you need a change for sure. At 1st Class Upholstery, we use the softest padding available, allowing you to feel safe in the knowledge that whenever you sit down at your favourite spot, you’ll always feel relaxed.
We use felt layering to contain the padding and provide a comforting layer to your chair. Although there are many different layering available for use, from our experience the use of felt has provided the optimum level of comfort for our clients at 1st Class Upholstery. Once that we are happy with this stage, we will sew the padding and felt together, giving a great feeling to whoever sits there, but we’re not done yet…
Fine fabric is one thing, but it’s what you do with it that makes a piece of furniture look the part. Our experts in Glasgow can customise your piece with a number of different options of your choosing.
