Antique restoration is our specialty. Bringing new life to damaged furniture and household items saves the environment, and helps preserve family heritage and tradition. We are dedicated to high quality workmanship, giving close attention to our customer’s personal tastes and needs.
O’Donnell Brothers can reupholster pieces of furniture that range from the incidental, such as dining chairs of the dining set we refinish, to whole rooms or upholstered furniture, such as multi-piece sectionals and chairs. We offer pick-up and delivery services along with a vast selection of fabrics to choose from.
All of the material possessions in your home make up what is defined as “contents”. Replacing homeowner contents with new items is not a foregone conclusion just because there was a fire or a flood. With the rapid emergency response of today’s municipal fire departments and current modern technology, many fires are extinguished before a total loss status is reached. In many cases, some or all of the contents can be cleaned or restored to an “as good as or better condition” than before the loss.
Fire, smoke and water can result in significant damage to art work, but with the appropriate treatment many pieces of art can be restored. We use minimally invasive treatments to maintain the integrity of the piece so it can be enjoyed for years to come. Our exclusive partnership with the team at Conservation and Museum Services provides a full-service experience from canvas repair to re-framing.
Salvageable pieces are electronically inventoried and digitally photographed using state of the art systems specifically designed for the restoration industry. We catalogue items by room and location, providing a detailed layout for when we return to deliver your contents, unpacking them and placing them in their originating location.
Small items such as dishes, knick-knacks, books, etc. are wrapped and boxed. Large items and furniture are tagged and barcoded. We use extreme care when handling your items, utilizing paper, bubble wrap and blankets to prepare them for shipping. Your contents are then loaded by our professional movers and transported to our warehouse using our insured fleet of trucks.
All contents are checked in and rack-stored for the duration of your structural repairs. Whether it’s ultrasonic cleaning, ozone deodorization or stripping and refinishing of furniture that is needed, our skilled staff will handle your items with the utmost care and prepare them for delivery back to you.
When your structure is ready for re-habitation, large items will be delivered back and put in place. We then unpackage your boxed items and place them in their originating location. This service is a part of our process, guaranteeing repair or replacement of items should we discover that an item has been damaged in transit.
Experiencing a structural loss can be overwhelming. Our goal is to help you through the process by working with you directly to restore your contents.
