Refinishing Services
The following applies to custom refinishing services sold on our Site:


  • Quotes are provided as a service to the customer to give them a detailed description of the work that will be performed.
  • Should the customer wish to make changes to the scope of the work, these changes can be made until the quote has been signed.
  • Once signed, the quote becomes a contract and is considered legally binding.


  • If changes are required, a change order will outline changes made by the customer or the business.
  • If the customer agrees, they will sign the change order and pay any additional deposits required to meet the 50% deposit requirement.


  • Each quote, once signed and becomes a contract, includes terms and conditions of the refinishing service and will outline the products or colours used.
  • If the customer agrees to the terms and conditions and services outlined in the quote, they will sign it.
  • The signed quote becomes a contract.
  • The contract date and the paid deposit(s) will determine the start date of the work. The latter of the two dates will be the accepted date.
  • The estimated date of completion is a guideline. Due to circumstances outside the control of the business that may arise, this cannot be a guaranteed date.


  • Security deposits may be required to hold a spot for future refinishing services if there isn’t an opening when the contract is signed.
  • Down payments of 50% of the final contract price are required before work begins.
  • Exceptional circumstances may require a higher down payment. For example, if the customer requires an expensive treatment or product.
  • Security deposits and down payments are non-refundable.
  • The down payment will be made before or upon dropping off the furniture for refinishing.


  • If a contract has not been signed, then no obligation is assumed on either party’s part once the expiry of the quote’s validity period, which is shown on the quote.
  • Cancellation of signed contracts must be in writing.
  • Verbal cancellation of contracts, in person or by phone, will be acceptable if no work has occurred.
  • Cancelled contracts forfeit all deposits paid.
  • Should a customer wish to cancel the contract, all work will stop on the piece once the business receives and acknowledges written cancellation.
  • Should the customer cancel a contract once work has started, and should the work not exceed the 50% deposit amount, the customer will not have to pay the total contract price before the customer picks up the piece.
  • Should the customer cancel a contract once work has started, and should the work exceed the 50% deposit amount, the customer will pay the total contract price before the customer picks up the piece.
  • The business will determine the 50% completion amount. Since this is a subjective timeline, the customer should discuss with the business the current progress on the piece to determine its level of completion.


  • Custom refinishing services are non-refundable.
  • All services are considered final and will be performed per the contract the customer signed.


  • Payment in full is required to pick up the finished pieces.
  • No piece shall leave the property without confirmation of final payment.
  • All paid deposits are applied against the final contract price.
  • Future quotes and communications will open a new contract.
