Art Restoration Experts understands that there are a lot of questions surrounding the restoration of your artwork, so we have created a page to answer some of the most common questions we receive.
Q: What type of cost is associated with Art restoration?
A: It varies, but typically it can cost anywhere from $200-$500 per piece and more complicated art restoration projects tend to cost a bit more than simple ones.
Q: Can we ship our art to you?
A: As long as it is properly and cautiously packed and safely shipped it is usually okay to ship your art. However, we do recommend insuring your package. Please also take the time to research suggested safe packaging methods.
Q: How can I be certain that my piece is in good hands and insured while in your possession?
A: Art Restoration Experts carries professional liability insurance to ensure the safety and protection of every piece that come through our doors.
Q: How should I pack my piece and ship it to you?
A: We usually advise clients to research safe suggested methods of packing and in our experience, we have found that most major shippers are reliable. We always advise clients to ensure their package for protection.
Q: How long should I expect to leave my art with you?
A: A typical restoration process can take up to 4 to 5 weeks. We have the ability to expedite certain jobs if time allows. Also please be aware that complex restorations or higher volume jobs will take considerably longer.
Q: How does art restoration impact the value of my piece?
A: Art restoration will only stabilize or increase the value of your already damaged piece. The damage it has already sustained will have the most impact on reducing the value of your artwork.
Q: Do you have the ability to restore faded writing done with ink?
A: We do have access to some digital enhancement methods that can intensify the contrast of faded writing but, unfortunately, we cannot increase the contrast or quality of the piece itself.
Q: Can Art Restoration Experts provide an appraisal for my artwork?
A: It may be unethical to offer an appraisal value due to a conflict of interest. We do, however; recommend seeking out a press a professional appraiser.
