Services >> Finish Conservation

Bernacki & Associates has the capacity to restore
and use any kind of coating from traditional to
modern. Antique, natural finish materials may be
oil based or derived from tree resin. The resin
material, of small, light-brown or orange flakes is
mixed with alcohol to create the finish. As natural
finishes enhance the wood beauty, the modern
coatings provide the durability for objects in
frequent use.
