Restoration

Landmarks restoration division has restored thousands of works of art and photos over the past 52 years. Oil paintings, watercolors, etchings and more require a specialist in each medium with a proper understanding of chemistry, materials and variables that arise in the restoration process. There is a marked difference between a hobbyist with hit and miss results and a confident professional. Our restorers possess the highest level of skill possible in each specific medium. In maintaining these high standards, we restore works in shop and also collaborate with a superior team of specialists. Each piece is properly assessed and we convey in detail the steps needed to bring your artwork or photos back to their original state.

We assist individuals, insurance providers, and disaster response companies with repair/replacement estimates for our services.
