Certain brands and models justify the expense of complete restoration. However, many pianos refurbished to a high level of perfection I would not consider a good financial investment. In this case, it is more or less done as an expense because "you love it".

What is Piano Restoration?

Good Question.....Well I would consider an overhaul to consist of any job which requires removing part or all of the piano from your home so that work can be completed in a shop situation. Below I have listed the basic categories of jobs typically done. Each job can be done on an individual basis, as not all pianos need every aspect restored to satisfy your particular need. Complete restorations are often best saved for piano brands of value, or in the case of a family heirloom. Brands of particular value need to be restored in ways that the value is maintained. Of course any family heirloom can be restored to different levels of perfection, however, you cannot make a concert piano out of one that never was one to begin with. So I think family heirlooms in particular, can be brought back to life, but do not absolutely need to be restored to the level of a concert piano.
