Pew Refinishing – St. Katherine Church
St Katherine’s 80 year old pews were in need of complete pew refinishing. Peeling lacquer and scratches marred the surface. Splits in the glue joints had compromised their strength. Egan Church Restorations completely restored these historic pews. We Stripped the old lacquer coating, repaired the splits, deep sanded all parts and then applied new stain. We added a new coat of clear polyurethane (like a gym floor) to protect the restored finish. New kneeler pads were added. The hardwood floors refinishing beneath the pews was also done before resetting the pews in the place. In addition, new marble tile floor was added for the aisles. Lastly, spot water damaged plaster repair and painting.
Pew Refinishing – St. Marie’s Church
St Marie’s Parish planned a complete church renovation for their 100 anniversary. An important part of the work was restoring the historic wood pews. Solid wood pews were suffering for decades of normal wear and tear. As part of a complete interior renovation, Egan Church Restorations restored all the historic pews to their original beauty. Each pew was sanded to bare wood, splits in the wood repaired, new stain applied and new polyurethane finish applied. New metal kneelers were supplied and installed. Other work included complete church painting of the interior.
Wood Furniture Restoration – Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Wellfleet, MA
Our Lady of Lourdes Parish on Cape Cod, Massachusetts was planning a new larger church, so they could combine the 3 small neighborhood chapels. One of the chapels had already been closed and the old wood altar had been put into the rectory basement. Left unattended, the altar had warped in sections and had some minor wood rot. Egan’s Church Restorations were hired to restore this parish legacy. Our wood workers removed it from the basement of the rectory, repaired all the damaged sections and refinished it. We also added gold leaf highlights and installed it into the new church. In addition, we created a new pulpit and baptismal font from left over sections of the old altar. Other work included repainting the stations of the cross, repainting 2 plaster statues and supplying all new radius pews.
