With time, use, or sometimes “thanks” to accidents, parts of our homes get damaged. Be it a nasty scratch in your beautiful wooden table or a huge hole in the bathroom left from your last renovation project, surface imperfections can make a property look, well, unattractive.
This is where hard surface repair enters the picture. Besides helping you maintain the good state of your property, this solution comes with a very long list of benefits, which we are going to discuss here.
So, if you:
This article is for you!
Hard surface repair is a type of solution that can help you fix practically any type of surface damage in your property. And what counts for surface damage? Scratches, dents, chips, cracks, holes, and stains are just some of the problems that can be fixed. Typically, the repair process includes a specific number of steps, like applying a special filling agent, colour matching, and painting over the damaged area. If done correctly, the final result should be a smooth, damage-free surface that doesn’t even look repaired in the first place.
Hard surface repair is a wonderful property maintenance option that comes with a looong list of benefits. With that in mind, here are the five biggest ones that push property owners and tenants towards this solution:
This is probably one of the biggest benefits of hard surface repair and the main reason why many people decide to opt for it. To understand why, imagine this scenario – you’ve scratched your living room door, the mark is pretty bad, and you just can’t leave it like that. You have two options: to have a brand new door installed, and burn a hole in your pocket or to repair only the scratch. Needless to say, the second alternative will be far easier on your budget and will save you a lot of additional hassle, especially if you are renting.
We’ve all been there – you damage your coffee table, you order a new one, and you see (or hear) the dreaded sentence – “Expected delivery time – 2 to 3 weeks”. Well, having only the “injured part” repaired will be far less time-consuming than waiting around for a delivery crew. This is especially beneficial in emergency situations, which require fast actions. Also, let’s not forget to mention that sometimes it’s downright impossible to find an exact replacement for the damaged item.
We’ve covered how budget-friendly and hassle-free hard surface repair is, so now it’s time to talk a little bit more about its versatility. You can restore any type of surface or material you have on your property, even the ones that seem irreparable. Do you have a huge scratch in your expensive kitchen worktop? You can get it fixed. Or maybe your bathroom door has severe water damage? It can be restored. From natural wood, laminate, ceramic, and acrylic to stone, marble, and even brick – you can have any type of scratch, crack, dent, hole, or chip fixed. And no – the restored area is not going to be visible.
If you like to collect and decorate your property with vintage or antique furniture, you know how painful it is to finally find that one special cabinet – the piece that you’ve been looking for for ages, only to see a huge, “beautiful” scratch gracing its door. Well, hard surface repair is a solution that can help you even with that. Again – if you are wondering if the restoration will be noticeable, it won’t. As we’ve already mentioned, hard surface repair includes special steps, such as colour matching, that will make the restored part indetectable.
Last but certainly not least on our list is the green factor. If you are a person who is environmentally conscious and on the lookout for new ways to be more sustainable, getting your pieces repaired and not replaced is another thing that you can add to your list. As you probably already know, if you don’t properly dispose of your sofa, for example, in a recycling facility, it will end up somewhere in a landfill. Needless to say, that’s very bad for the environment. This applies especially to “fast furniture”, which is often made from cheap materials that contain very harmful for the planet elements.
