Q: Can Furniture Medic by Vanderzee repair my furniture on site?
A: In many cases, we can perform repairs on site. However, there are situations in which the extent of the damage requires your furniture to be repaired at an off-site facility. In those instances, we will discuss the procedure for off-site repairs.
Q: Will the products used to repair my furniture be safe for my family?

Q: What are the main types of damage that can be repaired in my home?

Q: I have a white spot on the finish of my table. Can it be fixed?
A:White spots on furniture occur when heat (a hot pizza box, for example) or water (from a glass) penetrate the surface. In most cases, we can repair this type of damage on site in a few hours or less. In cases where the damage is too great, we will present you with other options for restoring the piece.

Q: I have a table that is showing some wear. What are my options for making this piece look better?
