My name is Philip Green. I grew up in Staten Island, New York and currently live in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn. I studied under professional artisans at the former 3rd Ward in Brooklyn and Nl Dev Restoration in Connecticut. I know that every customer has a vision of what they want their furniture or home to look like, and I will strive to make that vision a reality.

Why should I call Cityshades?

Almost everyone has some kind of furniture. Furniture, in particular wood, undergoes changes as it ages. Parts lose their strength, finishes fade, moisture warps the wood and there can be damage from any number of sources like pets, kids, movers, etc. Luckily there are many fixes for these problems. While not every solution can bring the furniture back to the way it looked when it was brought home, often you can avoid throwing out what you have and buying something new.

I have my own transportation, brushes, and dropcloths. Work is done neatly and according to customer specifications. 

I am not running a very large business. When you call the phone number, you'll speak to me. I'll be at the estimate and will write it up as well. Specifications for each job will be written on the estimate. You'll know what I'm doing before the job starts.
