    often give a very broad idea from a good quality digital photograph or series of photographs which show the damage in detail From this we may be able to give a basic opinion as to whether the object is restorable You can email these to us and we will reply as soon as possible This service is free To give a more detailed and accurate assessment including any estimate of cost we must thoroughly inspect the object and may need to carry out some investigative testing to assess the extent of the restoration required the materials which may be needed and the timescale involved This may take several days in some cases but is essential in order to produce a treatment plan and accurate estimate There may be a small charge for an in depth and written assessment which is payable when the object is left with us The amount is deductable from any further treatment charges or indeed may cover all of the cost if the restoration is very minor We do not give fixed quotes for treatments our estimates consist of a minimum price and a maximum price The final cost will not be less than the minimum
