Practically 99.9% of all frames brought to us for repair and/or restoration have a history that is very personal and dear to those who own or acquire the frame. Each person has an idea of what it is that will make their frame perfect for them. A little touch up here…some sanding and replacing a missing part there. Our aim is to do as much or as little as it will take to give our customers that perfect frame. A frame restoration may include a single repair (such as a broken corner) or a complete frame remake, which may include casting, sanding, carving, rejoining, gilding and finishing.
