Recent Wood Repair reviews in Sydney

Ian is a genius - he has a 'can do' attitude with the skills, tools and experience to back it up. He is also prompt, efficient and cleans up after himself. PLUS he is a very hard worker - he started early and on-time then stayed late each day to get each part of the job done. We are very, very happy with Ian's work and cannot recommend him highly enough!

What do wood repair services include?

Repairing wood is a broad specialisation, but Airtasker is here to help you connect with experts to have your pieces look new or even better. Some materials show their age poorly, especially wooden pieces that previous generations have come to be fond of and passed on to the current generation. From fixing minor imperfections to restoring pieces to be faithful to the original or even make it more usable and durable, here are just some of the services you can expect from wood carpenters near you via Airtasker:

Repairing gouges and scratches

Wood scratch repair and wood gouge repair are simpler repairs that can be done to pieces that have been blemished with relatively minor imperfections. Think about making oak scratch repairs for polished timber floors or existing wooden fences. Taskers will sand down the surface in need of repair and apply the necessary fix to make it better: be it a simple buff to restore scratched wood or the use of fillers to treat gouges. A wood finish will then be applied to protect the surface from damage which should boost durability.

Wood restoration

Sometimes, wood cannot be brought back to working order with a simple wood repair near you. A complete restoration is needed to bring your pieces back to life. Be it because of old age or excessive damage due to misuse or forces of nature, let Taskers be your handymen to get restorations done with finesse. Your furniture would look better than it did before!

Wood veneer repair and restoration

Wood veneer is a thin layer of wood glued on top of wood, metal, or other surfaces. The goal of a wood veneer is to add a different and better-controlled look and feel to your pieces. However, given the use of a thin layer of wood which is a naturally occurring material, repair and restoration are pretty much inevitable at some point. Have Taskers do the repairs for you, and they’ll come back with shiny pieces that look like treasures that you cherish.

Modernising antiques

Sometimes it’s not enough to simply restore scratched wood, especially for antique furniture. For the modernist who wants a functional piece of history in the house, Taskers can fix or repair antique furniture. Up to you if you merely wish to have it restored aesthetically or if you want a functional piece of history right at home.
