About Recliner Repair

selfie My name is Pete Medek and I live in Mansfield, Ohio. I have been repairing furniture for over 20 years.

My start in the furniture repair business began as an upholsterer helper during summer breaks from school. Later I ran a refinishing shop and also specialized in case goods repair.

The exposure to harsh chemicals in the refinishing business forced me to consider a healthier alternative, so I switched gears and became a Furniture Repair Tech.

The move was a natural one that allowed me to use the skills I'd learned in the upholstery shop such as blind stitching, restuffing and frame repair.

Am I An Upholsterer?

No. Though the two fields overlap, there are differences between upholsterers and repair specialists, not only in the tools they use, but their expertise as well. If you have a problem with your recliner while it's under warranty, you should contact the retailer that sold you your furniture. The retailer will send someone out to repair your chair. That repair guy (or gal) is often a repair specialist by trade, like me.

As an independent contractor, I work on new as well as older furniture. Or as they say in the trade, warranty and "out-of-warranty" repairs. I do repairs at my shop, in furniture stores and in customers' homes.

By far the most common type of furniture I repair is motion furniture: recliners, reclining loveseats & sofas, tilt-back chairs, etc. When I hear customers talk fondly about their favorite chairs, 9 times out of 10 it's a recliner. So, who better to help maintain your recliner than the Recliner Repair Guy?
