"James, Thank you so much for your beautiful craftsmanship on my Great-grandmother's desk.  This will be a centerpiece in my home for the rest of my life.  There are no traces of the fire damage left and it looks better than I could have imagined.  Thanks again!"

"On January 31, 2009, my mother's home burned in Fayetteville, N.C.  The fire destroyed the majority of the house and close to 100% of the personal property was damaged either by fire or water.  She had many antiques that we wanted to refurbish.  We thought several pieces were a lost cause.  As a matter of fact, the insurance company wanted to declare them as unsalvageable.

These antiques were taken to Old Heritage Restorations for evaluation and repair.  To our surprise, with the exception of one chair, the antiques were restored back to, or in many cases, better than their condition prior to the fire. 

I would highly recommend the services of James Canaday and his staff at Old Heritage Restorations.  Not only do they deliver a fine product, they also are very friendly and responsive to any questions or concerns."

"Cheers and thank you to Mr. James Canaday and his staff at Old Heritage Restorations Inc.  We recently acquired an antique bakery display case that dates from the early 1900s.  This piece has been in my husband's family for many years and was carefully brought here to Fayetteville from Ohio by two of his siblings (cheers to Jeff and Regina). The caring people at Old Heritage Restorations did a wonderful job refinishing and restoring this well-used piece of family history and making it look new again.  We now have this beautiful sideboard in our dining room, where it will serve this and future generations of our family."
