What Restorations Often Involve
The piece that you would like restoring must be assessed and your wishes as the client will be taken into account. We will need to ascertain the extent of the work you would like doing for how it will be used or displayed on a daily basis. Is the item to be restored to close to original condition, say? In this case, new materials may be used to protect and enhance the piece, such as reupholstering it in new fabric or leather; new brass work fittings applied and so on. Perhaps you are more interested in preserving as many of the existing features as possible; in which case, elements such as the original patina or finish will be retained.
All this means that we really need to see the piece in person to determine the cost of the restoration; and even then, it can be difficult to estimate an exact price as new issues could be revealed once work begins on the item. However, our many years of experience have stood us in good stead in being as open and transparent with customers as we can be about the task in hand and the results that are capable of being achieved.
