How much will it cost ?
Most refinishing jobs typically involve some repair work or rebuilding. -So estimates are the only way to go with this. Restoration and refinishing is different than buying a new piano. If you want a new piano go buy one. Restored and refinished pianos differ from new as they obviously involve working with older existing pianos and all of their parts in various states of repair and or disrepair. So, perfection in restoration differs from perfection in new. Levels of Perfection also obviously follow with how much money can be spent or even should be spent on any piano restoration project.
