Liz-Beth Art Restorations Services
Whether your home is filled with priceless works of art, family photos, or irreplaceable heirlooms, you want to ensure they are well taken care of in the event of a disaster.
Time is of the essence to ensure your precious art and memories have the best chance of being restored to their original condition. Liz-Beth Fine Art has over 30 years of experience in handling, restoring, framing, and installing art. Over the years, we have developed an Art Restoration system that starts in your home or business by securing and protecting your art and ends with reinstalling it in your restored home or office.
Our art restorations system may include some or all of the following:
- Art Removal
Art Removal: The first step in saving your art is to remove it from the affected area as quickly as possible. During this process, handling is critical as moving art from a disaster area without proper care can further damage it.
Stabilization: After removing the artwork from the affected area, it is essential to stabilize it as quickly as possible to prevent further damage. This process can involve the removal of the art from a frame or a damaged stretcher and eliminating any contact with elements that might further damage it. In the case of water damage removing and separating the artwork from any moisture is critical.
Cataloging and Appraisal: We provide a complete list by artist, medium, size, and estimated value for insurance claims.
Restoration: Once the artwork is stabilized, a restoration plan can be made. For paintings, drawings, and fine art photographs, this may involve; cleaning, flattening, mending, and retouching. Photographs, in some cases, can be scanned, retouched, and a replacement printed. For sculpture, pottery, and ceramic pieces, cleaning, restoration, or reattachment of broken pieces or the restoration of cracks may be required.
Framing: The artwork can be reframed after it is restored. Liz-Beth offers a range of framing options from standard to museum quality, depending on the value of the artwork. We recommend that all fine art prints and originals be framed with conservation and preservation in mind. Conservation framing is the process of using materials and techniques which are designed to preserve and provide protection to framed works of art.
Storage: Proper storage is necessary if the artwork is ready for reinstallation before the home or office has been restored. The storage area should be climate controlled and have low humidity.
Reinstallation: Finally, the artwork can be reinstalled in the home or office. Our team of professional installers will deliver and install your artwork.
