We’re sure that you’ll be happy with the results of our work.


Listed below are the services we offer. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with us.


French polishing

French polishing is the process of repeatedly polishing a piece of furniture, normally tables, but sometimes banisters, desks, and even wooden instruments such as violins, pianos, and guitars. This time-consuming yet rewarding work beautifully brings out the grains in the wood, achieving what has been likened to a warm glow. At AKB Property Maintenance, we find this work especially fascinating as it really brings out the character, uniqueness, and beauty of wooden furniture.


Depending on the type of wood and style of the furniture, different oil and methods of french polishing must be chosen. Requiring both skill and knowledge on the polisher’s part, choosing the right technique will guarantee an amazing result. We also offer veneering, marquetry, and inlay services.


Furniture repairs

For a number of reasons, furniture may need repairing. From damaged parts to wood rot, to missing parts. Fortunately, AKB offers a range of furniture repair services, provided by furniture repair professionals. Frame & joint repairs, woodturning, and replacement parts, whatever the issue is, we’ll rectify it. Splits, structural damage, and discolouration are no match for AKB Property Maintenance.


Our aim is to repair and restore the item so that it looks as though it was never damaged in the first place. Whether domestic or commercial, site work or shop work, we can repair any problem efficiently and successfully, achieving the best possible results.


Upholstery work

Traditional and modern upholstery and reupholstery are among the many furniture related services AKB Property Maintenance offers.


Upholstery can go through years of use, exposure to sunlight, and damage. Reupholstery is a skilled method of replacing material on furniture. Not only does the material have to be matched according to the original material, but expertly installed, so as to achieve the best results, yet maintaining as much of the character of each piece of furniture as possible.


Accidental repairs

Accidents happen. Burns, water damage, scratches are among the many common problems that we see when it comes to dealing with flooding, fires, and much more. We hope to be able to salvage and lovingly restore your furniture.


In the event of a flood, water damage can really do a number on furniture. Especially if it’s wooden or antique. Moisture can cause a number of issues when it comes to certain types of furniture. Fire and scratches can permanently damage furniture as well.

But fear not, AKB Property Maintenance is here to make the best of the situation.


First, we’ll assess the damage, and then act to restore it as best as we can. With our modern accidental repairing tools and methods, we’re confident that by hiring AKB, you’ll be satisfied with the work done for your precious pieces of furniture.


Modern spray finishing and refinishing

A highly skilled and fully competent team of finishers are available to finish and refinish your furniture. Colour matching, paint finishes, and colour changing are just a few of the services AKB Property Maintenance. If you have any questions about this particular service, please do not hesitate to contact us and we’d be happy to assist you.


Modern spray finishing and refinishing methods offer effective and satisfying results, bringing pieces of furniture back to life.


Site work

All services mentioned above are included in AKB Property Maintenance’s site work services. Domestic and commercial, staircases, doors, and paneling, and many other built-in furniture require maintenance and care as well. Yet, as they cannot be brought to the workshop, AKB brings the workshop to them. With our modern portable equipment and years of knowledge and experience, we’re sure we can tackle even the most difficult and obscure furniture restoration on-site jobs.


Oil and wax finishing, webbing and springing, leather desktop restoration, general furniture maintenance are some of the other furniture restoration services AKB Property Maintenance offers.


How much do these services cost?

It largely depends on the type and extent of the work you require. Contact us to discuss the furniture you have in mind and what needs to be done, and we’d be happy to give you a quote and any other advice you may need.


How long does furniture restoration take?

Again, depending on both what work is needed, and how much of that work is to be done, the time for the job to be completed will be decided by that. But, to give you some idea, the general furniture related jobs will take 1 to 2 weeks.
