Top Wood Repair related questions

While there have been reports of not-so-safe wood finishes for repair projects, rest assured that Taskers comply with safety standards for the actual end product and with the materials they use while doing the work. You may consult with Taskers for more specifics about toxic substances concerning their line of work and other options that are available for you.

It’ll depend on many facets of the project. How many pieces do you need to be repaired? How much damage has the wood incurred? Some factors also include how large, old and delicate the pieces are and what approach your Tasker will use to repair or restore the pieces. Some can take a few days; others, weeks. It would be best to consult with your Tasker to manage timelines and expectations.

If you only need one piece of furniture repaired and it’s pretty much used daily, then you’ll need to make arrangements to use something else in the meantime. If you have multiple pieces on queue, then perhaps Taskers can work on them one at a time, so you don’t lose functional home pieces all at once. Make sure to discuss this with your Tasker to see how both of you can approach this matter.

Some restorers believe that restoring antique furniture to peak condition or better can increase its value, especially when considering usability. However, some people think that restoring antiques, in general, takes away their historical value. It depends on how you see antique wooden furniture: is it something you intend to use and pass on, or is it something to cherish and keep as is?

Simply put, patina is just the natural ageing of material while damage already puts your item at risk of breakage. Wood is a raw material that does show its age quite gracefully most of the time. However, if you notice creaks and cracks in your pieces, then perhaps it’s time to consult with your Tasker to see if it’s damaged and negotiate how much you’ll have to spend to get it repaired.

If we’re strictly going by the definition of repair, the answer will likely be no. However, this is where the advantage of the Airtasker platform comes in: you may negotiate with Taskers and see if you can add in other services on top of the intended job. Feel free to discuss and negotiate with your chosen Tasker if you plan on adding custom touches to pieces that are being repaired and restored.

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.
