We undertake a full range of conservation treatments to clean, stabilize and repair both historic and modern materials. As members of the Canadian Association for Conservation (CAC) all treatments comply with the Code of Ethics of the CAC.
After examining the object, we supply a detailed condition assessment and estimate for the proposed conservation treatment. Work is usually charged at an hourly rate. We can work on site, however, detailed treatments are normally undertaken in our studio. Condition and conservation process is recorded in a written report, including photography.
