We are still able to provide on-site services for corporate clients. On-site cleanings and damage remediation are available both during and after normal business hours, by previous arrangement.

Leather Furniture Cleaning - Household soiling and staining detracts from the beauty of your leather furniture. If your leather has a surface finish, we can usually affect dramatic cleaning results (visit our leather care page to help you determine your leather type). We can also generally improve the aesthetics of soiled suede and nubuck leathers, as well. To resolve issues such as sun-fading, dye transfer (from fabrics or printed materials), body oil accumulation, or finish failure requires leather restoration and color application, the next step beyond a simple cleaning. All cleanings except suede or nubuck include the application of a conditioner that will help maintain the moisture content of your leather. If you have a finished leather, and want to tackle the project yourself, we have products available for you to use. For more details, call us @ (800) 541-5982, or email kevin@advleather.com with a description of your problem today.

Leather Furniture Repair - Experience makes the difference. Over the past 20 years, we have successfully completed tens of thousands of repairs to damaged leather furniture. Cuts, rips, burns, scrapes, scratches, ink, stitching problems, etc. are all repairable by our expert technicians. Our leather repairs are meant to be permanent solutions, not quick fixes. And, our color-matching skills are unparalleled. So, most repairs are invisible, and all repairs are a dramatic improvement over the existing damage, and are structurally sound. The results are dependent on the severity of the damage and the integrity of the leather. Because we have the finest repair materials, applied by experienced, skilled technicians, the results are the best they can be. For those who wish to make repairs themselves, we offer DIY solutions to accomplish that goal.

Stain Protection for Leather - A certain class of aniline dyed leather is prone to staining. This leather is classified as unfinished leather, which means there is little or no resin coating applied to the leather's surface. The hides used are typically the best available, and consequently the most expensive. The tanning process and aniline dyes accentuate the hide's natural beauty, creating leather with a soft, supple feel, and rich coloring. To protect this type of leather, we have developed a clear topical treatment that provides moisture hold-out, allowing you the opportunity to get a cloth and blot up an accidental spill before it transfers into the leather. This process applies to unfinished or lightly finished leathers. We can accomplish a similar goal using a different moisture hold-out approach for suede and nubuck leathers. If you're not sure what type of leather you have, refer to our leather care page for assistance.

Finish Applications and Refinishing - For pieces that need full restoration (sun-faded, ph damaged, extensive finish failure, or dye-transfer, for example), we can offer finish applications that will restore the furniture to like-new condition, often at a cost far less than that of replacement. For example, full restoration to original color of a typical three-seat sofa is around $1000. The fee will vary based upon the extent of service required (preparation issues, body oil extraction, leather replacement, etc.). We can tailor our services to meet your requirements, and your budget. You can view some examples here. We can review the specifics of your furniture, and come up with options for restoration.

Leather Color Change - We are often called upon to change the color of leather furniture. This is one of our unique specialties. If you have a faded medium brown piece, and desire a rich, hunter green, we can do it. We can create the color of your choice on your existing leather that reflects your changing decor or preference. There are specific considerations in a color change project. Call (800) 541-5982, or email kevin@advleather.com with a description of your problem, so we can review the details with you or your designer.

Partial Leather Replacement - Sometimes, due to age or damage, certain panels or sections of your leather furniture require replacement. This would be a difficult-to-impossible task, were it not for our custom color-matching skills. We can take a piece of leather, match it to your existing color, and install it, thus saving the cost of replacing the furniture.

back

Leather Upholstery - Our skilled craftsmen can upholster your furniture in leather. If the piece is covered in leather that is simply worn-out, then we can give it a whole new life through re-upholstery. Perhaps it is currently upholstered in fabric, and you want it to be upholstered in leather. We have the skills and materials that can accomplish your goal. If the color you are looking for is not available, then we can custom color the leather hides for your specific needs.

Classic, High-end, and Custom Leather Auto Interiors - For the classic car, preservation of the original leather may be the primary aim. While we can re-upholster your interior with new leather, our first priority (if possible) is to save and preserve the original leather. If the integrity of the existing leather is still sound, our repair and coloring techniques allow us to bring back the leather's original look. If you need to repair damage prior to selling your car, or taking it to show, or even if you're looking for some outrageous inset color to set your car apart, we can help. For those who want to do it themselves, we suggest you visit our DIY solutions website's automotive page.

Leather Desks, Table-tops, Walls, etc. - Our craftsmen have repaired, re-colored, replaced, and installed new leather on a wide variety of pieces where the leather is affixed to a hard substrate, like a desk-top. We have worked with cabinet makers, furniture designers, and furniture builders in installing custom-colored leather panels in a variety of locations. If gold accent is required, then we're the craftsmen to see. Leather flooring, leather-covered doors or walls, whatever the application, we have the expertise to solve your problem, and assist you in creating the look you want to achieve.
