There are a lot of different factors that can go into piano refurbishing. We have sort of that look and feel aspect of things. If your piano’s exterior is looking old and worn down we may have to go in and do a considerable amount of work on the wooden structure or the type of original material that the instrument is made from. At the same time in a refurbishing procedure, you are most likely going to want your instrument to be left in workable conditions when it’s all set and done. Therefore, part of the refurbishment process could include replacing keys and strings.
Sanding, repainting or re-staining are just some of the procedures that we are going to be able to apply here. The first thing that we want to do though is to make sure that we know exactly what type of base we are working with. In the past, we’ve had a lot of clients that have hired people who were not professionals of the piano business for help with these procedures. We’ve seen quite a few nightmares that we are certainly going to be keen to avoid. A big part of that is just knowing what we are dealing with and then picking the right steps to follow.
Is It Worth It?

Even if you are not thinking about reselling the instrument. We can talk about the type of results that you can expect to obtain before we get straight to work.
