We specialize in Polishing & Refinishing of all types of Pianos, Upright, Grand, Traditional or Modern.

Piano Repolishing / Refinishing is a highly specialized field requiring a thorough working knowledge of both the woods (cabinet) and the instrument within.

We specialize in commissioned piano repolishing/ refinishing work, several examples are contained within our website (Piano Repolishing Portfolio) and pride ourselves on the quality of the work we produce. From straight forward Stripping, (hand stripped, ALWAYS) & modern Spray Polishing in either satin or high gloss finishes to full Piano Restorations.

The most popular choice by piano dealers and private customers is a Grainfilled finish using a Pre-cat Lacquer, this is available in various colours and sheen levels.
Our other choice is a Compliant Modern (AC Lacquer) similar to a traditional french polish finish which produces a mirror like surface, this is a lengthy & time consuming process, but the result is worth it.

Piano Repolishing/ Refinishing

When we repolish a piano we use modern spray finishes, the main ones are AC (Acid Catalyzed, 2 Pack) lacquer & Pre-Cat (Pre Catalyzed, single Pack) Lacquers, these Lacquers result in an excellent finish and are less time consuming than traditional French polishing.
Pre-cat lacquers are perfect for the majority of Pianos and Furniture please see our polishing Portfolio page.
The AC lacquers we use are similar to a traditional French polish finish and still about a third cheaper due to the time factor for french polishing as this can take 2-3 months to complete correctly, AC lacquer finishes take approximately 4 weeks from start to finish.

With the AC & Pre-cat lacquers we can finish your Piano virtually any colour, so if your looking for a white, black, blue, grey or pink piano these are a good choice. Modern finishes are also more resistant to water & alcohol and won't scratch as easily as French polished surfaces.

As we only Specialize in Pianos, Polishing & Restoration, once your piano has been repolished we replace all the Cabinet felts, clean all the brass work located on the piano including the pedals, then when we have re-assembled your Piano this leaves it looking as good as new.

Modern Grainfilled Piano Refinishing


The Pianos photo ed below are showing a modern spray Grain filled satin finish, unlike a non grain filled finish the grain has been filled prior to polishing giving a fuller sheen level and hardly any grain depth. This finish generally takes two weeks from start to completion. This is the most commonly requested finish amongst piano dealers.

High Gloss Refinishing


Here we have the modern equivalent of a French polish finish, the most difficult finish to produce & repair. Mainly used on the more expensive pianos and contemporary designer furniture also used on the majority of new pianos and generally takes four to six weeks from start to completion.
