Pro-Strip furniture restoration center in Springfield, IL has rapidlly grown into the largest restoration firm of its kind. Customer service coupled with expert craftmanship have been the major factors in our steady growth.

Tables, chairs, desks, rockers, dressers, beds, coffee tables and trunks are among the most popular items stripped, repaired and refinished in our shop.

Our most popular in-home refinishing jobs are KITCHEN CABINETS and WOOD FLOORS. We offer a variety of colored laquers and paints to fit your decorating needs.

EXPERT STRIPPING: We use a safe gentle system that preserves the natural beauty of the wood without causing damage. It is also very ENVIRONMETALLY FREINDLY!

COMPLETE REPAIR SERVICE: If it's repairable, we can fix it. We also work with all insurance claims including fire and water damage.

PROFESSIONAL REFINISHING: Our professional craftsmen can refinish your finest furniture to its original appearance or to a finish to match your present decor.

If you are considering replacing your kitchen cabinets, your old dining room set or bedroom suite you may find it more cost efficient to restore what you already have. Often it is of better quality than what is available.




The floors and staircase are beautiful! The whole process, from estimate to completion, was handled with professionalism and courtesy. We especially appreciated how you and your staff, Ray and Brian, kept us informed of your progress throughout the project and stayed on schedule…something that is pretty rare these days! It was also obvious that you and your staff take real pride in your workmanship. I think Ray is as proud of our floors as we are! Anyway, I guess the best endorsement any business can get is whether a customer would recommend them to a friend, and we certainly would recommend Pro Strip. Come to think of it, a better endorsment might be whether that same customer would hire them back, and in this case, we certainly will!

My wife and I were wandering about in the home improvement stores when we found a great by on pre-finished flooring, and bought it on the spot. We were going to lay it ourselves with some help from an experienced friend, but sickness intervened.

We had previously had Stephens Quality Painting do excellent interior painting for us. We asked Bill Stephens if they laid flooring. His response was to recommend another company of which he was part, Pro-Strip. They came with a bid that was better than the "home improvement" installers could give, so we accepted.

The bid was to install the new flooring we had purchased so that it blended with the walls, woodwork and floors which adjoined the room. It was a large "L-shaped' room. The work was started with little wait time.

As work progressed, we saw what a professional company we had engaged. Safegaurds were taken to minimize dust, avoid soiling the carpet in adjoining rooms and avoid damaging walls, woodwork and other floors. The job was completed in just two days...amazing!

What a beautiful room that became! The new flooring was installed so it seemed to have been there even before the woodwork and walls were installed and painted/varnished. Exceptional!! Thank you, Pro-Strip.

Happy Homeowners,
Bob and Jo McDonald


Bill I think of you as an American icon. The fact that you have honed your specific craft to an art form is a talent that no one can ever take from you. Starting as a family apprentice makes Pro-Strip LTD the very best in the area and possibly the country. To you I give a virtual award. Thank you for working so hard to make the old house at 105 sigh a deep breath of relief as “she” has in some small way returned to her youth.



Our dining room set is GORGEOUS!!! Thank you for doing such a fantastic job. We just sit and look at it in AWE! We know our decision to have it repaired and refinished was the right one. You are all very professional and know what you are doing. Thanks so very much!!

Thank you for paying attention to the restoration work on our piano. I can't tell how many comments we've had on the beautiful wood.
