TMC Restoration did a fantastic job in restoring an old dining table for us. This dining table was gifted to us by a friend almost 30 years ago when they had to leave the country. We used it for a couple of years and then had to put it in storage as we too were leaving the country to work in Asia. When we returned almost five years ago the table was put in use again, but because of its dark colour and having dents and cracks here and there, I was thinking of getting rid of it. But my husband always had a love for it and wanted to have it restored. We found TMC Restoration at their booth at the Stouffville Home Show. Robert, TMC's representative came to our house to inspect the table, and convinced us that it was made of high quality solid wood and definitely worthwhile to have it restored. Robert explained their meticulous restoration process in great detail, how TMC's workmanship and services stand out from other companies, so we decided to give the table a new life. Tino, who is responsible for customer service was a delight to work with. He was very efficient in handling the logistics after the table was picked up. He opened our eyes to the true beauty of the table - its natural wood colour which is much lighter, and the grain which was never visible before due to the dark painted colour. What's more, Tino and his colleague Guy gave us valuable information on the type of wood that our dining table was made of, the characteristics of the wood, and its design style. It is reassuring that such information came from the TMC Restoration expert team. The delivery team was also very helpful in the pick up, delivery as well as disassemble and reassemble of the table. We are very very happy with the work that TMC Restoration has done. The dining table is now a centre piece in our dining room, and will definitely stay with us for many more years to come.
