It is essential that communication between us and our clients is factual, clear and simple and defines the desired outcome of the conservation project. We clearly explain the conservation
process, contractual information and answer any questions. A written proposal outlining the procedures, costs and time frame is developed and reviewed with the client. A final report is
developed which details the work that has been done, analysis and research undertaken and materials used. We endeavor to maintain these standards whether the project is large or small.
A dedicated and professional staff is at the foundation of a successful outcome for each project. Every employee of the F.C. Vogt Company is committed to providing the highest levels of artistry, craftsmanship, integrity and historical accuracy.
ANALYSIS AND RESEARCH
A thorough assessment of all of the material aspects of an object's condition and probable causes of deterioration is undertaken in order to ascertain potential treatment options. Additionally, non-materials research concerning the date and place of manufacture, chain of ownership and other relevant values contributes to the conservation process by helping to understand the historic context
of the object being treated.
