Piano Restoration Cost
Piano Restoration Cost Options - Is it Viable?
Piano restoration cost estimates can be markedly more than you expect. When you’re looking at having a piano repaired or restored, you need to work out if it’s financially viable to work on the current piano or whether it would be more worthwhile to invest in an entirely new piano.
Pianos can be sentimental objects. As family heirlooms, pianos can carry a lot of history with them. As such, when things go wrong with a piano, it’s tempting to get it restored or repaired because it’s a reminder of days gone by. However, piano restoration is not always economically viable and there are many factors that go into a decision like that. For example, if your piano was manufactured by one of the leaders in piano design, it’s more likely to be worth restoring than one that was made by a relative unknown in the field. Similarly, older pianos with older internal mechanisms are generally not worth restoring. There are also issues related to humidity that affect pianos and dictate how well they work. When you’re looking at whether restoring your piano would be viable, contact reputable dealers for cost estimates. The beauty of dealing with a larger dealer is that they won’t pressure you into restoration if it’s not right for you or your piano. Sometimes, although it’s hard, saying goodbye to a family heirloom in the shape of a piano is the best course of action. It might be time to browse pianos for sale instead of attempting restoration.
