What do refinishing services include?

Refinishing services include renewing and restoring your items to their original appearance and former glory! This process is performed by a skilled Tasker using state-of-the-art refinishing methods and technologies. Whether it’s glass, metal, plastic or wood refinishing, Taskers can get the job done! Here are a few of the things they can do for you:

Furniture refinishing

Refinishing a piece of furniture involves repairing or completely removing the finish, stripping the paint, and applying a new one. This can be done by a furniture stripping service near you. From reupholstering items like couches and chairs to refinishing laminate tables, kitchen cabinet doors and drawer fronts, your Tasker can help breathe new life into your home.If something’s broken, you can get someone to have your furniture repaired first to ensure that everything’s good to go before refinishing your kitchen cabinets, tables and other wooden furniture. 

Floor refinishing

If your floors have seen better days, maybe it’s time to have them refinished! The most common type of this service is hardwood floor refinishing where it involves sanding, dust removal, restaining, recoating and sealing to help restore its colour and lustre. This material is one of the easiest and most affordable to refinish, so you may consider that when planning to have hardwood flooring installed. But aside from wood floor refinishing, Taskers can also do this service with other types of floor material, such as vinyl, ceramic or stone.

Fence refinishing

Fences are constantly exposed to external elements such as strong winds, heat, rain or snow, and that’s why they’re highly susceptible to wear and tear. Having it regularly refinished can help avoid corrosion, holes or gaps, sagging gates, and stains while extending its lifespan. Whether it’s made of wood, aluminium or chain-link, Taskers can help restore your fence so it can serve its purpose efficiently. If you don’t have one yet, you can also get someone to install a wooden fence on your property or any fence of your choice!

Musical instrument refinishing

Though refinishing musical instruments is usually not recommended because their finish is part of their tone, there would be instances where saving the instrument is the better option than replacing it. This is mainly for those attached to their musical instruments who want to keep them for as long as possible. Banjo, violin, mandolins, and guitar refinishing can only be done by experts with the right tools and supplies, so the original appearance is restored without sacrificing the quality of sound they produce.

Hey lovely ones, I have a new vanity in an oak finish, ground mounted 750mm wide, and vanity mirror cupboard 750mm wide 150mm deep.

Hi, I am looking for someone to fix the top of a round dining table. A project involving magnets and glue (with two tablecloths between) made marks that look like circles of the top layer have been removed. I believe it needs a sand and stain/refinish. We live in an apartment building and the table is quite bulky so it would probably be best if someone were able to do it on site. Thank you in advance for your help!
