I am writing to thank you so much for the incredible work that you do. Two years ago you transformed our 18 years old patio set into what looked like it had just left the showroom!! Now two years later, when a tree fell on one of the chaise lounges, you came back, repaired it, and the set is still complete! Rarely do you find a company that provides such incredible customer service, as well as perfect workmanship! I would recommend your company to anyone who wants a reference.

I was delighted when I saw the finished product. You removed the old paint and applied the new so beautifully that the cast aluminum furniture looked brand new. I purchased this Molla furniture about 38 years ago. It has been outdoors and exposed to the elements the entire time. I repainted it two or three times during that period but never sanded down the chipped areas. Thank you for giving the chairs new feet, the lounge new wheels, and the whole set a new life. It is sure to outlast me.

This note will reinforce what I have told your people during the whole process of refurbishing our Brown Jordan furniture. You are unique in a business that so often disappoints. Your company did a super job every step of the way – from pick up thru the return delivery, not to mention the like new appearance of the redone pieces at a fraction of the new furniture cost. I hope you will be around for a long time.

The quality of your company’s work is, to say the least, impressive. The furniture was returned on Wednesday, June 12 and it looks as if it came directly from an outdoor furniture showroom! In what passes for renovation work these days, it is rare to see this superior level of craftsmanship. My wife and I have no hesitations in recommending our company to anyone in need of this type of restoration vis a vis outdoor furniture.
