“If you’re looking for quality, look no further than Schanz Furniture & Refinishing. For the past 25 years, we have purchased new furniture and have had many family heirlooms repaired, refinished, and recaned at this family owned business.

Furniture repair may require a variety of different services depending on the individual piece.  We are able to provide many services such as stripping the old finish off, re-gluing joints, fixing cracks or just simply replacing seat weaving on chairs.  We have experienced people do our caning, splint ash and rush seat weaving.  Below are the selections/patterns of seat weaving we offer.

Many times in furniture repair or refinishing, pieces may just need a bit of repair while others may need both repair and refinishing.  Since pricing can vary depending on the restoration need, we typically ask for the customers to bring in their furniture for a firm quote.  We understand that this may not be possible for everyone, due to distance, so we do welcome photos sent via email. Quality photos can provide us with enough information to give you a “ball park” figure.  From that figure you can then decide if or when it would be desirable for you to bring your piece to us here at Schanz Furniture.  Please keep in mind that it usually takes several months to do any furniture repair or refinishing.  Each piece varies but with a little planning, on both sides, we are usually able to work you into our schedule ensuring that you receive your piece in a timely manner.  Please contact us on this website if you would like to inquire about refinishing or repairing a piece that you might have.
