Under normal circumstances you can either come to our workshop or we can come to you. At the moment within the current coronavirus situation I am suggesting that I either do home visits (for which I will wear appropriate PPE) or can run a consultation via Facetime or Zoom. This will help us to make an initial diagnosis, we will however need to see the ‘piece’ to provide a more detailed pricing structure.
Obviously furniture restoration is not always an exact science and issues with a particular item may not be uncovered until further into the project. At this point of the process, we will give you an estimate of the cost and timeframe.
If you wish our professionals at Imperial Finishes Antiques to repair, restore, preserve and conserve your antique or fine period furniture, we will again agree the initial schedule of works, book your piece into our workshop and allocate you with your job number. You can track it’s progress by either phone or email. Of course you can always come and visit us at the workshop by arrangement as well. Your piece will be photographed at the beginning and the end of the project. Should the need arise further photographs will be taken throughout.
Any antique can sometimes hide many more issues than an initial inspection might reveal, normally due to indifferent repairs. As we undertake more exploratory work, hidden issues can and do come to light. Should issues arise we will then consult you on how you wish proceed. Woodworm and decaying wood could be invisible from the surface, but could have a major effect of the integrity of your piece. Some treatments could be required multiple times to fully preserve your furniture. Should more complex work be required, a revised estimate will then be given.
