Dismantling and restoration of the carpentry structure

Each entrance wooden door goes through complex restoration measures.

Old wooden doors that need restoration and contain small wooden and metal structures are first disassembled into elements. The only exception is perfectly glued parts and fragments. Why is this step so important in the rebuilding process and why is it so important to complete it in the first place? All wooden constructions of that time were glued on organic glues (bone, carpentry, animal, fish glue) during the manufacturing process. All organic adhesives perform their function well, but after 70-80 years they degrade and the bond ceases to be strong. It should also be mentioned that during operation, the construction is damaged during continuous use. And this also greatly affects the weakening of the pointed joints and the structure as a whole.

  • After the door is dismantled, restoration and repair of the carpentry structure is mandatory. The carpentry design of the building can consist of 8-10 or more different elements and details. Disassembled elements may have several drying cracks that need to be glued to ensure the integrity of the carpentry structure.
  • They are often heavily broken elements, patterns on wooden parts that have been erased by time and weather conditions, which need to be partially restored or made anew. Often on doors that come in for restoration, there are antique screws, pyramid nails, latches, keyless locks, copper handles, glass, etc. All this can only be done by order by specialized masters. Over time, screws and nails loosen, creating a gap where moisture enters, and then the metal fasteners begin to rust and stop holding the structure.
  • It is often very difficult to determine the amount of damage on the door from a photograph, as these damages are often hidden inside. This requires a personal inspection of the door by an expert to accurately assess the required range of services. Use the form below for a preliminary assessment of door restoration.

Each item to be restored is unique. In this regard, the costs of restoration work are calculated separately in each case.

Renovation prices depend on many factors, such as:

  • the condition of the furniture itself;
  • the nature of the damage (presence of cracks, chips, violation of decorative elements, veneer condition, etc.);
  • complexity of renovation works;
  • usage of consumable material in the restoration process.

Each object needs an individual approach and individual methods of restoration. There are no fixed prices for such works.
Therefore, it is difficult to indicate a certain amount of labor costs in a telephone conversation, and sometimes even an approximate one.

The conditions of restoration directly depend on the complexity and scope of the restoration work.

Each restoration begins with a preliminary inspection of the item to more objectively assess its condition. During the inspection, you can accurately determine the cost of restoring the item. Since the external condition of the object, the condition of key elements and the integrity of the carpentry structure can be inferred from the photograph, the presence of internal hidden defects remains unclear.
