All restoration requires an in-person viewing and consultation. Only after the consultation and the customer's approval will work begin. Fees are based on an hourly rate plus materials required for the project and are quoted in advanced. Since physical examination of a piece is critical in determining extent of damage, we reserve the right to adjust any estimate given from photos or digital images. Additional questions may be answered in the FAQs.
We pride ourselves in completing work in a timely fashion usually two to four weeks.

Cook Restoration offers complete museum quality restoration for your fine art. Services for paintings include cleaning and removal of dirt and stains, old repair, and yellowed varnish, lining, consolidation of the paint layer, patching, fill, in-painting, and varnishing. All work is performed using minimally invasive techniques and follows strict ethical industry standards.
Restoration services focus on period picture frames as well as gilded surfaces of furniture and objects. Restoration of these surfaces include structural repair, replacement of losses, removal of paint over original gold leaf finishes, cleaning, and re-gilding. We take care to preserve as much of the original finish as possible and skillfully match restorations to that finish.
Once the artwork and/or frame restoration has been completed, we carefully fit the painting and frame securely together. Finally, we add secure hangers and wire for hanging, and bumpers to protect your wall.
