Restoration and Repair

Pianos can offer many decades of enjoyment and beauty if properly cared for, and it is not uncommon to pass a piano down from generation to generation as a family heirloom. But just like anything else, the elements and casing of a piano will deteriorate with age and use, and will need service to return to their original beauty and performance. If you have a piano that needs restoration or repair, trust the knowledgeable team at Hall Piano Company.

The Restoration Process

The restoration of a piano is a much more complex process than simple tuning and requires the expertise of an experienced professional. Depending on the condition of the instrument, restoration may include replacing the various internal components, such as the dampers, hammers, and other action parts, as well as the pinblock and strings. It also includes refinishing the piano cabinet or housing, including replacement or repair of the soundboard and plate.

High-end grand pianos that are of exceptional monetary value are prime candidates for restoration, as well as instruments that hold historical or personal value for the owner.

Experience You Can Trust

At Hall Piano Company, we have nearly 60 years of experience restoring and refurbishing pianos in various states of disrepair.
