Denis on time. Quick fix. Knowledgeable. His repair is much better than an new purchase. Highly recommended.

James Morton


Highly Recommend!!
I consulted Denis after we damaged two seats on our motor coach when they were not turned properly to allow for the upper bunk to drop. He thoroughly examined the seats. At first, he said he could not do the repairs, because the material they put in RV's now is not true leather or vinyl. I was very disappointed. However, he later contacted me after he did some research and told me he could, indeed, fix the seats. He came out today and made the repairs, and he did a wonderful job. His ability to match colors is amazing. I am very pleased with his work which he guarantees. I was not only impressed with his work but also with his work ethic. He will not attempt to fix anything he is not absolutely confident that he can do satisfactorily. He is extremely professional, respectful, honest, and service-oriented. I would highly recommend Denis for your repair needs. I am confident that you will not be disappointed!

Denis offers outstanding service and professional knowledge. He repaired a reclining sofa that had a defective motor. The furniture store I purchased it from said it no longer had parts or serviced the product. It was only 3 years old. Denis was able to figure out the problem and get the parts and make the repair. He was a real life saver.

Denis restored the finish on a scuffed up recliner and then was entrusted to reupholster a new seat to a century old rocker. It was delivered today and I can't tell you how pleased we are to have it usable again!

Kara Mullaley


I would recommend Denis at Fibrenew to anyone that needs this kind of repair work done. His work on my leather car seat was exceptional.

Bryan Aiken


Denis is awesome. Our couch was damaged by movers and I thought it was a lost cause but he fixed it and you can't even tell there was any damage. It is an expensive leather couch and now it looks like new again. Thank you so much for all you did to restore it back to normal.

Mike Smith


Our beautiful leather sofa & loveseat had been seriously damaged during the move to NC. I could not imagine the possibility of, even reasonable, repair. Enter: Denis Schmider!! Meticulous, precise, artistic work that I must get down on the floor, eyes within inches of the repaired area to begin to see where the damage had been. Highly, highly recommend this courteous, talented professional!

Debra Lange, Denver, NC

Denis did a great job on my car seat. He was prompt and the seat looks like new.

Franz Lorio


Denis did a wonderful job. My 13 year old drivers seat looks brand new! Thanks again!

William Burrow


our 20 year old mixed-matched leather furniture had been scratched by cats, "loved on" by children, and made several moves, and it showed... not in a good way. We had been looking at purchasing a new set for a few months, but the price for comparable quality was ridiculous, which got us looking for an alternative. I did some research, and found Fibrenew, and we contacted Denis (after seeing some of his work online). He responded within 24 hours, and came out to see if our pieces could be rescued, and dyed to match each other. Denis was very specific about what he could and would do, and after talking with him, we were encouraged and felt confident this was worth pursuing.
we are happy to say that Denis and Fibrenew delivered on their promises, and then some! After we approved the invoice, they got to work and within 2 weeks our furniture was back in our home It literally looks brand new, the color is rich and consistent, and we could not be more pleased. Plus, the cost was very reasonable and significantly less than purchasing a brand new set. We highly recommend Fibrenew!

I got a cut in a top-grain leather sofa (in red leather) and I was told about Fibrenew. I called and Mr. Schmider was so prompt in getting me a quote, which was reasonable....Also, he came very soon, and repaired the sofa back to original look. I will be using this company as needed....I would also recommend Mr. Schmider at Fibrenew to anyone looking for professional, good quality workmanship....

What a pleasure to work with Denis. He was punctual and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone who has leather that needs attention. Thank you for a job well done at a reasonable price.

Diane Eckard, Hildebran

Denis showed up on time, was extremely professional, Friendly, and very knowledgeable. He did a color repair on an expensive Bradington-Young leather sofa and his work is exceptional! The price was reasonable and will be having him return soon to do some other work for us!

Madeline Stoker


Denis Schmider is a most courteous and professional representative of Fibrenew. He was on-time and the quality of his work was impeccable. We were so pleased with his work on the first visit, we hired him to come back and do additional work on other pieces of leather furniture. I highly recommend him for repair/restoration of all your leather or vinyl furniture!

Bernie Daigle


Denis was the best. His estimate came in a day. He was on time for our appointment. Very professional, knowledgeable and polite. The end result could not have been better. Would definitely call on him again or recommend him to anyone with a need. Enjoyable experience. Thanks, Denis

Denis worked magic on my car seats! He artistically and meticulously revived the interior of my car. It was an amazing process to observe. Very punctual, courteous, and knowledge of his craft. Highly recommend without any reservations.

When I moved here to Lenoir 2 years ago from Oregon, I knew I would need a recliner, but decided to check on my father's and its condition. First time I sat in it, I realized part of the recliner 'opener' lever was broken. It wasn't long til most the the lever was broke off so I simply left it open as much as I could. My husband wanted to buy me a new one, but I wanted to save that $2K junk of change and use on something else for else. I found Fibrenew Catawba Valley's Denis Schmider and he was sure he could fix it. I sent pictures of all needed, he came and inspected the unit, and within a week found a part that would fit. He went above the call, by replacing with a metal unit, rather than a more flimsy hard plastic device. Denis, you are professional, creative, and magnificent. I would recommend you to anyone. Thanks a million young man.

Diana A Hale, Lenoir, NC

Can't recommend them enough. Service was prompt, courteous, and efficient. I was very concerned that our furniture was a loss after the damage that occurred but they look better than the day we took it home.

Tiffany S


Denis from Fibrenew was the consummate professional. He took great care in matching the color and texture on two different sets of furniture for us. Our sectional sofa was so worn and discolored, we considered discarding it, despite it being high quality piece. The final result brought the sofa to almost new condition, and well worth the time and money. It was fairly dramatic to say the least. Thank you Denis for your talent and attention to detail!

Todd Jordan


Highly Recommend. Exceeded Expectations.

Steve Greer


I had a leather sofa that had multiple small tears on the back. It was under warranty, and Fibrenew was sent out to do the repair. Denis was polite, professional, and exhibited great attention to detail. When completed, I could not even tell where the repair was done. It looks like new!

Kelly Rogers


HIGHLY recommend!! Excellent customer service, rapid response, very impressive results. Denis was so easy to work with and communicated quickly and frequently. He was very willing to work with our schedule and we could not be happier with the results. He completely revitalized our exam chairs and made them look almost brand new! We will definitely be calling Denis again!

Katrina Killian


Dennis of Fibrenew Catawba Valley did an awesome repair on my black leather sofa today. His craftsmanship amazed my wife and I. We love our "new" sofa.

Gidi Ka


Denis showed up on time and made all the leather repairs we needed at a fair price. We are very happy with the quality of the work he did and definitely recommend his services.

Mary Beth Morgan


I was searching on the internet what to do about a leather couch that seats were really worn. Denis website popped up Fibrenew of Catawba valley so I gave him a call. Within an hour he texts or called me and was on vacation and he would be glad to help me when he returned. In September he was able to restore my 2nd hand leather couch. It looks brand new and was not very expensive compared to buying a new couch. This couch is in a mountain house in Boone that is used by VRBO rentals. I will definitely use Denis if any of my other leather pieces look worn I also have told many friends about not throwing away your leather pieces. Thank You, Denis Robin Bumgarner.

Denis was contracted by Hickory Furniture Mart to assess & repair my brand new, yet defective, recliner in my sectional sofa.  Denis knew exactly what to do, what to order, and repaired it perfectly.  He is professional & courteous, and I would highly recommend him for any furniture/upholstery repair or cleaning.

My blue leather chair and ottoman had been a landing pad for our kittens several years ago. Most of the flat surfaces were scratched up - not through the leather to the pad, but all over the surface. Denis came to our house, helped get the chair down the stairs and out to his van, and took it to repair it. In short order he brought it back looking like new! The scratches were all filled, sanded down even, and the whole chair was redyed to match.

The chair looks fantastic and no longer has to be banished to a back room. It's front and center in the main living room now.
Thanks Denis for a great job and fantastic service!

Bob Nolen


We had several large cracks on the back of a vinyl seat on our pontoon boat. Denis repaired them beautifully and you'd never know there had been a problem. He was very knowledgeable about the product and did a perfect job matching the color. I hope we won't have any more problems with our boat upholstery, but if we do - we'll be calling Denis.

Nancy Graham, Denver, NC

I called Fibrenew Catawba Valley and received a response shortly thereafter AND a visit for repair within the hour on my convertible top which had several small holes. The repair on my top was performed with great care/professionalism and perfectly blended in so you cannot see where it was completed. I highly recommend Fibrenew Catawba Valley and will without a doubt use this service for any future restorations.
