Like best: Kotis Furniture Refinishing has repaired and refinished 2 cabinets and 1 buffet for me. These pieces are over 100 years old, were passed down in my family and had significant wear and damage from spending the last 20 years in basements and garages. After Mr. Kotis completed the job these pieces look like new. Mr. Kotis is very professional, goes above and beyond to get the job right, pays attention to detail, and has fair pricing. I intend to have Mr. Kotis work on 2 more projects, an antique dining table and an antique wardrobe.

Like best: Three words that best describe the work of Kotis Furniture Refinishing are outstanding, excellent and amazing.  Jim Kotis recently restored the wood cabinet that houses our family's 1942 Singer sewing machine.  The work that Jim did was magnificent, and what really impressed me was that his price was very reasonable.  If you need your furniture repaired and/or refinished, you only need to contact Kotis Furniture Refinishing.  You will be thrilled with the results.

Like best: Mr. Kotis beautifully restored and refinished my 30's era vanity and mirror and is currently restoring the matching dresser.  The vanity finish had darkened and cracked from age and improper storage and Mr. Kotis transformed it to its original condition.  He also made several structural repairs to ensure the piece would be sound and have a long life. The quality of his work is outstanding. He is not just a refinisher; he is very knowledgeable about furniture styles and periods as well.  If you let him work on your antique/vintage piece, he will do his research to get it just right. I could not be more pleased with the results.

Anything to add: Not everyone is willing to take on a grandfather clock kit.  There is so much more to it than just assembling parts of wood. Jim did an outstanding job.  He installed and fine-tuned the clockworks perfectly, a tricky business indeed!

Like best: We have a glider rocker that has been broken for several years.  I periodically looked on-line for a potential place to have it repaired.  I recently found Jim's website and sent a request for an estimate.  He responded immediately with a very reasonable estimate!  One week later, I have my glider back, repaired, and cleaned like new!  Jim did a great job...very professional and efficient.  I highly recommend giving him a call if you have furniture in need of repair.

Anything to add: Mr. Kotis picked up and repaired six mid-century modern dining chairs for me.  Extremely communicative and professional.  I am so pleased others left their testimonies, as that is how I chose his business.  I look forward to using Mr. Kotis for other furniture needs in the future.

Anything to add: Jim and his team were great to work with.  I had bought a very large credenza I wanted refinished white.  Little did I know, before buying, that it was extremely heavy.  Jim and his crew figured out how to get this piece in his trailer.  He even put casters on it to make it easy to move in the future!  The credenza looks amazing and exactly how I pictured!  I will use him for all refurbishing needs going forward!

Like best: Jim did an absolutely outstanding job on two pieces of furniture we needed to have repaired.  The first was a large oak secretary desk that had some pretty severe cracks in one of the doors.  Jim's repairs completely addressed the problem.  The second was a Mid-Century mahogany buffet that suffered some extensive water damage to the bottom and one of the sides.  Again, Jim's repairs made it look even better than it did before the damage.

How to improve: I can't think of a thing!

Would recommend: Yes

Anything to add: I recommend unreservedly!  Again, simply outstanding!

I had a hazed finish on a dining table; I reached out to Mr. Kotis and received a very quick response. He provided a great estimate and did a fantastic job on the table very quickly. I have other pieces I will be having him address as well. I could not be more pleased with every aspect of Kotis Furniture Refinishing.

Like best: The repairs and refinishing of our 100 year old baby crib were amazing.  The attention to detail and high quality of work provided us with a crib that will be used for another 100 years.  Mr. Kotis even manufactured broken and missing parts to make the crib functional and safe to use.  Outstanding job!  We highly recommend Kotis Furniture Refinishing.

How to improve: Nothing. Great job

Like best: Wow, better than I imagined.  I grew up with this chair that my mother bought somewhere in Tennessee.  My chair is now brand new and beautiful.  I sent photos to my siblings and they were equally impressed.  Multiple slats were broken along the back and legs were also iffy.  No one has been able to sit in it for years.  Now it's back in service, better than ever.

Like best: The cedar chifforobe had been in our family for about 65 years and needed not only be brought back to life, but Mr. Kotis gave it a new life as a beautiful TV cabinet for our guest room.  His attention to detail and desire to give us what we wanted cannot be surpassed.  We highly recommend him.

Like best: The work Jim did to repair and restore my mother's bookcase was impeccable.  This antique piece needed a great deal of work, and Jim was able to also solve an imbalance we had with the glass door.  In addition, I really appreciate the pick up and deliver that Jim offers.  I could not be happier with Kotis Furniture Refinishing!
