Framing restoration is a meticulous and specialized process that involves revitalizing a framed piece's frame, matting, and glazing while ensuring the preservation and enhancement of the enclosed art or photograph. It's a delicate art requiring expert knowledge and a profound understanding of framing and art preservation.
The Framing Restoration ProcessOur framing restoration services encompass a comprehensive process to restore your pieces to their original glory:
- The process begins with a detailed assessment of the current condition of your framed piece. Our experts inspect the frame, matting, and glazing, as well as the artwork itself. This assessment helps us understand the extent of the restoration required and any potential risks to the artwork.
- The next step involves cleaning the frame and glazing to remove any dirt, grime, or discoloration that may have accumulated over the years. We also repair any physical damage, such as broken or chipped frames, loose or damaged matting, or scratched glazing.
- Our skilled craftsmen meticulously restore the frame, ensuring it retains its original charm and integrity. This may involve refinishing, gilding, or recreating intricate details to match the frame's original design.
- We assess the condition of the matting and glazing. If required, we replace these elements with archival-quality materials to ensure the long-term preservation of the artwork.
- If the artwork has suffered damage or fading, we collaborate with experienced art conservators to restore it to its former glory. This may include cleaning, repairing tears or creases, or addressing issues related to color fading.
- Once the restoration process is complete, our experts conduct a final inspection to ensure that every aspect of the framed piece has been impeccably restored. We verify that the frame, matting, glazing, and artwork are in perfect condition.
