When it comes to restoring an antique, there are various terms and types. From thoroughly cleaning something to full-on structural repair, antique restoration takes on various forms. Let’s take a look at the common terms and types of antique restoration.
Antique restoration is the work completed in order to bring an antique or heirloom as close to its original condition as possible. It can include structural repairs and finish restoration. By applying Lubricite, you can bring back the finish of nearly any wood antique.
Repair for a wood antique includes fixing scratches, gouges, water stains, broken legs, loose hinges, and more. When you use Lubricite, you have the ability to fill in and smooth our cracks, scratches and crevices. At the end, the surface will look good as new!
Antique Finish Restoration
The patina, or surface sheen, of an antique can make a huge difference when it comes to its value. An antique finish restoration will protect the patina developed over time, all the while enhancing it, too. Lubricite is easy to apply and the finish will be beautiful.
When you refinish an antique, the original surface is removed and replaced with a specialty varnish, which you can find in our line of products. You can refinish a whole piece of furniture or smaller parts. Or simply focus on any damages. At Lubricite, we have commercial removers and lacquers that will make this job as easy as possible.
Stripping an antique piece involves applying a chemical solvent that removes the finish of the piece and brings it back to bare wood.
Depending on the type of restoration or finish of the antique, it may require different processes. From light touch up to more in-depth filling and smoothing, Lubricite can get the job done and turn any antique into something beautiful again. Many industrial antique finishers use our top-of-the-line product to restore even the oldest antiques back to their original luster. When you finish wood antiques, it may increase the value of it, too.
