Wall decor that has been damaged by water, smoke or fire can usually be successfully restored. It is essential that framed artwork that has been exposed to excess moisture be properly and quickly disassembled to be allowed to dry. Our base charge for insurance quotes begins at fifty dollars. This amount will be credited towards the cost of restoration if we are hired to complete the work. All items for art restoration must be brought to our showroom for examination and a quote. No appointment is required. We can also arrange for a pickup by appointment.
Antique or damaged photos can be restored in most cases. Many photographic services are available including, digital restoration, enlargement, copy work, and colorization. Photos and artwork can be reproduced on photographic paper, fine art paper (watercolor paper), and canvas. We will evaluate and quote based on the amount of work that needs to be completed.
