COSTS

Conservation & Restoration work: 

  • Is Labour Intensive
  • Is Time Consuming - Repair Work Is Slow And Detailed
  • Utilises Specialised Equipment
  • Uses Materials Which Are Expensive
  • Takes Years Of Training And Experience To Become Skilled In This Profession. 

Only the client can value the object for the history, culture and personal associations it represents.

  • The object must be of sufficient value, sentimental or otherwise, for it to warrant the expense of restoration.
  • The value of an object does in no way change the time taken for the repair.
  • Expect to pay no less than you would for other professional, or specialised services.
Sometimes extra work can appear as work progresses, the client is always informed where this is the case. Where repair work is forecast to be costly, slow and lengthy a deposit of 50% will be asked for.
