The insurance company wrote this piece off as water damaged and told Sally to arrange for some replacement quotes. We quoted over $5,000 to replace it but also quoted under $3,000 to restore it.
So many people make the sad mistake of thinking that all furniture is written off after water damage and this is not true. This solid cedar antique that belonged to Sally’s mother & grandmother was not a write off. Quite apart from the sentimental value, look at it now!
