Welcome to Surrey Restoration

Surrey Restoration has been established since 1992 and has been providing excellent restoration services since its inception. We service both the local community, London and the Home Counties.

Our forte is fine furniture restoration. We specialise in both small and large scale commissions. We are able to translate our fine furniture restoration skills to work not only on furniture, but also on interior woodwork such as paneling, wooden staircases, beams and floors.

We look forward to hearing from you regarding your furniture needs.





Mark Grady has been in the field of restoration since 1986. He trained and served a five-year apprenticeship with a renowned Antique Furniture Restorer in Chobham, Surrey.

Later, he was appointed Head Polisher at Sotheby’s Restoration Workshop, Billingshurst, Sussex. He established Surrey Restoration in 1995.

Emily McGhee has a BA in Fine Arts & History, Sydney. After completing a Fine Arts course with Sotheby’s Institute, London she joined their Furniture Department in New Bond Street.

She later trained as a furniture restorer and worked in the Sotheby’s Restoration Workshop.


These are our specialties

Antique Restoration
Our craftsmen work in sympathy with the piece, using traditional methods to achieve a wonderful result. Restored furniture will not look like new, it will look well cared for, as though it has been loved and valued through its lifetime.

French Polishing
Mark Grady is regarded as one of the best French polishers in the country. His skill level is second to none and he is a perfectionist in all that he does. He will discuss the finish with you in order that you achieve the desired outcome for your furniture.

Mirrors and Frames
We undertake work on mirrors and frames. We can make missing sections of moulding either out of wood or composite and then undertake the gilding or decorating that may be necessary to finish the frames.

Locks, Keys and handles
Locks, keys and missing brassware can be repaired or made. We are also able to get items of brassware recast if need be.

Furniture Maintenance
An on site maintenance service is offered for those households who wish to have their antique pieces of furniture cleaned and wax in situ.

Upholstery Repairs
We outsource this to specialist upholsterers who we recommend. We will attend to any woodwork repairs necessary before upholstery work is undertaken.
