Coatings Conservation

The identification and treatment of aged and historically important finishes is often critical to conserving an object. We are trained in modern conservation treatments using synthetic resins and coating systems, along with more traditional, time-honored materials and techniques. The emphasis is always on preserving historically important surfaces.
