ICS Church Furnishers were asked to visit the church and to make a recommendation on the restoration of the pews in the church. After many years of service the pews were worn and damaged and the leatherette kneelers were in bad need of repair.
ICS Furnishers solution
Following a visit to the church and having taken a pew away for assessment at our works, the project commenced and all the pews were removed from the church and brought back to our work shop in Dromod Co. Leitrim. The restoration process was as follows:
• Dismantle pews into individual components
• Remove all lacquer back to raw timber
• Modify benches to equal length and make good all junctions.
• Replace elements of heavily worm attacked timber
• Balance colour of timber throughout
• Finish with three coat mat acrylic lacquer to achieve durable contract finish.
• Manufacture new kneelers covered with contract quality leatherette.
• Pews were delivered and installed to site.
Complete restoration and reconditioning of the church pews and kneelers.

“ICS have looked after us very well. The design of the furniture was crucial to the whole project and Gavin took the time to understand our needs and design and deliver the right product for us. Before production samples were made and brought to us, which was very helpful as we realised our design on the choir seating needed to be adjusted – which was done without any fuss or problem. I can (and often do when visitors comment on our church) recommend ICS to anyone looking to replace their furniture. Quality products, bespoke design, and good care of customers – I couldn’t have asked for more.”
