Frequently Asked Questions

 

How did you learn to do touch-up work?

I was fortunate enough to train with master artisans one of whom was my father.

 


 

How long have you been in business?

Since 1987.

 


 

Who do you do work for?

Project managers, Construction Companies, Developers, Furniture and Kitchen retailers and manufacturers, Moving Companies, Designers, Architects, Homeowners, and Professional offices. Please see our client list for details.

 


 

What type of finishes do you repair?

Wood, lacquer, polyester. I also touch-up mica and small damages on stone.

 


 

Do you work on “new construction”

Yes, I work with companies such as Bovis Lend-Lease and Extell Development on new condo projects including Stanhope, Orion, Milan, and Ariel East.

 


 

Where is your work performed?

All work is conveniently done on-site, so there are no moving charges or added risk of damage.

 


 

What size jobs do you do?

Small jobs can be as little as one hour, while larger projects can take hundreds of hours

 


 

Do you work in office buildings?

Yes, many prestigious firms such as Albanese & Albanese, Lehman & Eilen, and L’Labatte Balkin have used Touch-Up Artistry to help them maintain their furnishings, and to foster their image of excellence to their clients and staff.

 


 

Is touch-up work affordable?

Yes, in most cases touch-up is more cost effective than full stripping/refinishing. Many clients realize that with routine maintenance they can completely avoid the need to refinish or replace their furniture for many years.

 


 

Is touch-up work messy?

Not at all. Most people are pleasantly surprised at how neatly the work is done. Unlike refinishing, it creates almost no dust and spraying is rarely necessary. Of course we protect surrounding surfaces anyway, as a precaution.

 


 

How soon will I be able to use my furniture?

In most cases you will be able to use your furniture immediately. If the finish needs additional curing time we will communicate that to you.

 


 

How much improvement can I expect?

Most damages will be very difficult to detect and some will be completely eliminated. This depends on factors such as location and severity of damage, type of finish, and lighting.
