We restore fire damaged artwork
When a work of art is damaged, you should secure the services of a trained conservator or restoration specialist as well as an accredited or certified art & antiques appraiser to assist with the insurance claim. Conservators or restoration specialists can provide you with opinions regarding restoration, while the appraiser can provide value opinions both before and after restoration.
The quality of the conservation is an important factor in determining diminished value although the monetary compensation for damage is never a reflection upon the quality of the conservation. Conservation can be 100% successful, yet the value of the artwork can be negatively affected. Conversely, even a partial restoration of certain works would affect their value to the positive.
