Railway sleeper table
Customer Service
Quality

Andy and his team were second to none. Not only did they take on a pretty complicated project (stripping back and making good a railway sleeper table that had suffered severe water damage - which two other providers declined based on the work involved), but they approached it with real gusto, innovation and a can-do attitude. The communication during the project was fantastic and the workmanship sublime. They met the agreed schedule, the costs were very fair and transparent and the end result - well, we're ecstatic! I have no hesitation in recommending Andy and his team. They're real craftsmen and all-around decent folk. Thanks so much, Andy and Co.

Exceptional workmanship on an antique table

Brilliant French Polisher who did a wonderful job on an antique table with lots of spots and scratches. I wanted the table to be restored without losing its character as it is a family piece with lots of history. Andy listened really carefully to me and took time to explain and discuss the possibilities. The result went beyond my expectations! I would highly recommend French Polishing & Finishing Ltd to anyone.

I would highly recommend Andy. He was very helpful and informative. He removed a wood panelled mantelpiece at short notice and was very careful not to damage the surrounding panelling. I look forward to him returning to clean and polish the wood panelling after our building project completes.

Excellent oak floor repair

I would highly recommend The French Polishing Company (Andy). Our brand new oak floor was heavily damaged (fireplace hearth stone dropped onto floor during fitting). Andy responded the same day the damage was made to assess and took away a sample to practice the repair. Andy then returned at a convenient date to complete the fix and performed an excellent job to disguise and provide a durable solution to the damage. Andy took a very thoughtful approach to provide the very best disguise for the damage with his extensive experience and highly professional workmanship, plus very competitive cost. Thanks Andy.

Andy did a great job giving a new lease of life to an old family bureau. It looks as good as new! He was helpful and friendly from the first phone call until delivering the bureau to my home. The price was fair; and I now have him lined up for a couple of other jobs.

Really great service. We have a large polished rosewood sideboard which was broken by two feral children. Andy managed to repair two hinges and make two splintered and sad-looking doors look as good as new. He also worked his magic on an ugly watermark (probable gin as a result of the children) disappear on a small cocktail cabinet. He collected. He delivered. He had a smile on his face. We loved him. Thank you, Andy!
