Our Frame Restoration Services

Art Framing in Canberra

Our picture frame repairs encompass a wide range of solutions to address various issues and bring back the beauty of your frames. Some of the services we offer include:

Frame restoration is an intricate and meticulous process aimed at rectifying any structural damage that may compromise the frame's integrity. Common issues addressed during restoration include cracks, splits, broken corners, and chips. At the Framing Doctor, our goal is to breathe new life into the frame, restoring its original strength and ensuring it can securely and elegantly showcase the artwork or photograph.

Glass replacement is crucial for frames with cracked, chipped, scratched, or broken glass. Fortunately, at the Framing Doctor, we'll remove the damaged glass and replace it with new glass cut precisely to fit the size and shape of the frame. This not only restores visibility to the artwork but also protects against dust, moisture, and physical damage, preserving the piece for years to come.

Mats provide a decorative border around the artwork or photograph within the frame. Over time, mats can become discoloured, stained, or damaged, detracting from the overall presentation and may not do justice to the artwork's beauty. At the Framing Doctor, we'll replace the old mat with a new one that complements both the artwork and the frame so your treasured pieces can regain their original allure.

Over time, frames may lose their original finish due to wear and tear or exposure to environmental factors. Our frame refinishing service involves a range of processes, including sanding, painting, staining, and providing protective coatings to rejuvenate the frame's appearance and protect it from further damage. Whether you have an ornate antique frame, a sturdy aluminium frame, or a stained timber frame, you can count on our team to transform it to its former glory!

Hardware repair addresses issues with the frame's mounting and hanging components, such as hinges, hooks, or D-rings. For this service, we'll fix or replace any broken or loose hardware to ensure the frame is securely mounted and easy to hang. This service is essential for maintaining the frame's stability and functionality and preventing accidents or damage caused by inadequate mounting.

Cleaning and preservation services involve gentle techniques to remove dust, dirt, or grime from frames without damaging the materials. This meticulous cleaning process helps restore the frame's original beauty and ensures it remains in excellent condition over time. Preservation efforts also include using appropriate cleaning products and methods to prevent discolouration or degradation of the frame's materials.

Based in Canberra, we also offer professional canvas repairs. Canvas repairs involve addressing damage or wear and tear to canvas artworks, such as tears, punctures, loose canvas, or flaking paint. Our experts at The Framing Doctor are skilled in canvas restoration techniques, including patching, re-stretching, and colour matching for seamless repairs. Whether it's a valuable painting or a sentimental canvas print, we can revive and preserve the artwork's integrity and beauty.
