Renovation and preservation projects are done with care and concern for architectural and structural integrity as well as beauty and function.
We start by numbering each piece of every pew before taking them apart. Then load the Pew pieces in our truck to be taken back to our shop. Once unloaded at our shop the major repairs are done. We then chemically HAND strip (no dip tanks) (never use anyone who uses dip tanks). Once all the finishes and stains are removed they go back to the repair area to be checked over again and sanded. The Pews are then taken to our finishing room where they are hand stained, and the catalyzed lacquer top coats applied.
Upon delivery each pew peice is placed in the proper location. The Pews are then reassembled using screws, not nails, so they will be completely sound. Finally they are reattached to the floor, inspected, and wiped down with lemon oil.
Beware of those so called refinishers who want to do pew refinishing on site or who do not take the pews apart. When you take the pews apart you will find all their hidden problems such as cracks, splits, etc. that need to be repaired. The chemicals needed to strip the wood is toxic and hazardous, proper ventilation is needed. Also there are OSHA regulations you don't want to deal with. I was once called by a church that had a fire in there Nave. I had bid their project a few months back and was not awarded it. They hired a refinisher that did their pews on site and left stain rags laying around and caught on fire. (surprise).
