PA House dining room furniture damage

marthafanAugust 26, 2009

I own a PA house dining room set. It was picked up yesterday by a furniture refinisher that I contracted with from Angie's list. About an hour after they left, I rec'd a call stating they lost one of the larger drawers during transit. They offered to rebuild a new drawer.

Can anyone tell me if I have an argument that the value of the furniture is diminished?

Also, I'm considering legal action, but don't know what the value of the furniture would be. Any suggestions? I found an ebay auction for the china cabinet, would that be a reliable source for determining the value of the set?

Any advice about my situation would be greatly appreciated.

It is a very upsetting situation, but you will probably come through it in fine shape. Pennsylvania House is good quality furniture, but it is not "antique quality." If your refinisher is a skilled craftsman, capable of making a new drawer and matching up the hardware and finish precisely, then you should be OK and the value of your furniture will not be affected.

Was the entire drawer lost, including the front? They will have a fun time trying to match the grain and finish. Good luck.
