Below are questions, questions along with answers, that we are often asked.


Question 
How much does the furniture, pews and chairs cost?

Answer 
Prices are quoted on a firm bases, prices depend on number of feet, types of ends, types of bookracks, type of fabric, etc. We are "hands on companies" we have many ideas gained from years of experience that we want to share with you. We can do that best with a face to face meeting. We have as much pride in getting you the right "fit" as you do in getting the right "fit".

Question 
How long does it take to get pews from The Marshall Company after they are ordered? 

Answer 
Approximately 120 days. Building furniture with solid hardwood can not be rushed. The moisture content of the wood must be reduced before fabrication begins.

Answer 
The factories offer hundreds of fabrics and we will help you find the right one for your use. Taken into consideration are wear factors and colors.

Question 
How many wood stain colors are available for pews?

Answer 
There are many standard colors, with custom and/or matching colors available.

Question 
What does Solid Hardwood mean?

Answer 
"Solid wood" means that each exposed part is made of pieces of genuine hardwood and nothing else. For large surfaces, strips or boards are bonded with stronger-than-wood glue and other wood joinery techniques. 

Some alternatives are hardwood veneers--thin slices of wood bonded to composite boards or plywood. This type of construction is sometimes described as "all wood." Please do not confuse this with solid wood construction. 

In addition, artificial laminate surfaces of plastic, foil or paper often are printed with photographs of wood grain patterns and bonded to composites such as particle board or medium density fiberboard. Remember the terms "oak, maple and cherry finish" may simply refer to the color or the photographic reproduction of the wood's grain - it does not necessarily mean it is the authentic, natural hardwood. 

If you're not sure whether the item is solid hardwood or an imitation, examine the construction:  Generally a good sign is gluing. Solid hardwood furniture and cabinetry consist of many pieces of lumber glued together edge-to-edge or end-to-end with continuous glue lines. Put your finger on a glue joint and trace it across the top of the surface, over the edge, and to the underside. If the line disappears, chances are it's not solid hardwood. 

Question 
Does your furniture fit sloped floors or bowl shaped floors?

Answer 
Yes
