Consider Repairing Your Old Lamps

January 7, 2014

Do you love your old lamps, but they are not working right? Consider lamp repair. New sockets, cords and switches will make them work like new, and freshen up their look as well.

Of course the first concern with lamp repair is safety. Would you use any other faulty appliance in your house? Then why would you risk an electrical shock or fire by using an old, deteriorated lamp that flickers or sparks? The cost of repair is just not worth the risks.

Vintage crystal or alabaster lamps with dirty, old white cords look great with new nickel parts and clear silver cords. New white or black shades and new finials can give them either a classic or a more contemporary look.


The same can be said for porcelain, brass, bronze or wood lamps with new antique gold, brown or black cords. Often some of the old brass parts can be reused. But if not, new “antique” brass parts can be used to give your lamps a more original look.  Polished brash parts are standard.

We have one of the finest lamp repairmen in Central Ohio. Frank has been repairing our lamps for over 30 years. He is an experienced, meticulous electrician, whose prime concern is the safety of every lamp he repairs.  His focus is table and floor lamps, so he does not repair chandeliers or halogen lamps, due to time and space constraints.

So bring your old lamps to have them rewired, with new sockets and switches, making them reliable and safe for years to come. And remember new shades and finials will give them a fresh traditional or modern look!
