In Brief

Oil paintings are a beautiful medium for conveying a sense of location. That said, there will be times where paintings fade or otherwise deteriorate over time. In this particular case, this oil painting of a small coastal community’s boat dock is crumbling. The paint has lost adhesion to its canvas and is flecking off in thousands of small chips. The dire condition of this piece necessitated a multi-step process for Heritage’s staff to ensure the painting would survive for many more years.



An old church bell from 1904 was in a bad state of corrosion. Its polished nickle surface had turned dull and green during the past century. The staff at the Sacre' Coeur Retreat Center requested that Heritage Restoration to both restore the bell’s original finish and repair its hardware. The goal of this project was to make the bell operational once more, and to install it at the Retreat Center.



A stained glass window was damaged in a recent fall. Heritage was contacted to provide repairs on a damaged depiction of the famous Italian monastery Monte Cassino.



A stained glass window in a city’s oldest surviving church was recently vandalized. A replacement section was created to scale and installed into the original glass panel.



An old-fashioned secretary desk was revitalized using specialized coatings. After the restoration was complete, the aged piece of furniture was much more striking and vibrant and in its appearance.
