Every day, thousands of college students spend many hours behind the furniture at your university. With this much daily usage, furniture can often look as though it needs to be replaced. However, desks and other university furniture can often be refinished and restored instead.
At The Keck Group, we have helped restore countless education furniture pieces with more durable finishes than their originals. Our refinishing projects include large refinishing desks at Harvard, Chapel pews at Colgate, Mt. Saint Vincent College in Manhattan, Fairfield University in Hartford, CT, and Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. Our newest project is the refinishing of pews in the Sage Chapel at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY.
We have seen firsthand the aesthetic and monetary benefits of refinishing instead of replacing. Choosing to have your desk or chapel furniture refinished by The Keck Group will allow you to work directly with experienced craftsmen who are dedicated to saving you money and leaving your pieces better than before.
Services We Offer
At The Keck Group, we understand that your college or university’s furniture may have unique needs. That’s why we offer refinishing services as well as repair and restoration work. Our three specialties include:
- Repair: This is the first step in the refinishing process if your furniture has any damage. We can repair issues to aid in appearance and safety as well as meet compliance codes.
- Refinishing: Instead of performing a light or surface refinishing, we perform a complete professional refinish where we remove the old finish and replace it with a new one. We use lacquers that both protect and bring out the original beauty of your wood.
- Restoration: The restoration process is usually the most involved. Sometimes college or university furniture may need to be modified to make it more comfortable or accessible, especially if the furniture is several years old. Following the restoration, we perform a complete refinishing process.
- Transportation: Our trailers are specially designed to carry pews and other large pieces of furniture, including desks, office furniture, dorm furniture, and more. When you’re ready to replace damaged wooden furniture, we can help remove it.
