Salt Lake City Area – Painting Restoration, Art Restoration, Art Conservation, Painting Conservation, Repair Art – SLC, Utah

FACL provides art conservation and painting restoration services to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS, Mormons) including the following departments: History Department, which includes the Church History Museum, Building Dept., Missionary Exhibits Depts and the Temple Department. Services are provided on a continual basis, even traveling to Hawaii and London, England as their art conservation expert. (See video below from a recent trip)

Other clients for whom we do work include the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers (DUP or International Pioneer Museum), The University of Utah, Utah State University in Logan and the Springville Art Museum in Springville, UT. We also meet with numerous private collectors and individuals who may only have one family heirloom portrait.  See in this video about our background:

When we get a call to restore a painting, clean a painting, fix artwork, repair a rip in a canvas painting, analyze a painting we schedule a personal visit to look over/evaluate the artwork at your location, offering a estimate of the work up front at no charge. Then, if the work is to be done, we offer PU/Delivery to your home or office. The work’s schedule, however, needs to coordinate with our other project’s pick up and delivery in the Provo/Salt Lake City Area.

Call around. Call the institutions listed on this page. We are sure you will hear great things about our service, quality work and ease of working with us.

We also do art conservation and painting restoration work in the Las Vegas area, throughout Southern CA, we do a lot of work in the Carmel/Monterey area. We have work shipped to us from clients all over the Western US and we work on murals nationally.

    Spoke with Scott this afternoon in regards to a map restoration. He was very knowledgable and helpful. Won’t be able to restore this particular map, but if I ever need any other restoration work done I will contact him!

  2. Stan Freck says:

    Scott – thanks for speaking with me about our statue in need of restoration this morning. While you don’t provide those services, I was pleasantly surprised by your willingness to provide me alternative options to investigate and how much time you took to speak with me. Thanks!

  3. One of the best ways to beat the heat in the summer months is with your very own backyard pool. Pools are a source of fun at social gatherings such as backyard cookouts. Designing your own pool ensures that your new investment has all the features you desire. Keep in mind a few basic rules when designing your pool to make sure the process goes smoothly.

  4. Planting perennials will give you a relatively maintenance-free garden, while annuals will need to be replanted each year. Whatever your design, creating your landscape will require some time and muscle but once completed will be a source of pleasure year round.

  5. Trent Packer says:

    I have a 200 year old map of the Netherlands that needs help. The paper is drying up and tearing. About how much would it cost to give it some love?

  6. Ted Baker says:

    Great info and interesting video. I appreciate the pleasant talk we had on the phone and the good advice. I look forward to seeing you soon.

  7. Scott M. Haskins says:

    Brittany, thanks for leaving your comments and it was very nice speaking to you too. As I told you, repairing a bad rip, cleaning a painting and inpainting the losses to disappear are a normal set of problems we resolve everyday. As I told you on the phone, here’s the link for the video on repairing a rip: I look forward to meeting with you in about 3 weeks.

  8. Brittany says:

    I discovered your page and video for your work in Utah. Thanks for the info as I’ve been searching but didn’t find a shop I was confident in. There is a lady in SLC who works out of her house but “her professional vibe” was less than I was expecting. There doesn’t seem to be a professional working in the state! But, obviously, people needing professional help work with you and you’ve here for decades! Once I knew your name I called around and it seems everyone knows and admires you. I was so pleased when I called you and had a very nice conversation. It was exactly what I was searching for: good advice, reassurance and feeling that I could trust your company. I look forward to seeing you during your next visit.

  9. Thanks for your article ,very interresting video ,it was a pleasure to learn so many thing on your blog .

  13. Perry Anand says:

    Murals, street art, and well done graphics, are indeed art, not just graffiti. they should be protected from vandalism and preserved – they often add color and life to an otherwise blank, dull looking wall!

  14. Scott M. Haskins says:

    Thanks for connecting with me Ray. I called and we’re going to connect the next trip to Salt Lake City in a couple of weeks.

  15. Ray Olsen says:

    I have a lithagraph dated 1881 by J G Brown. It has a few minor blemishes (two small tears that were taped along the edge, and turned yellow).

    I would like to know what it would cost to fix, and I know that you would have to look on it.

    Thank you, Ray………………cell # 435-994-1411

  16. Jen says:

    It amazes me that paintings and murals can be restored so well.

  17. Luke Payson says:

    I called around looking for someone to help me with a family portrait. I got Scott’s name again and again from museums, curators everyone. I was not disappointed. He was very personable, answered all my questions and the work from his lab was wonderful. The pick up and delivery service made working with him very convenient. Thank you for allaying my fears and making this a great experience for our family.

    Scott is working on a large historic preservation site with my company right now… he was brought in as the mural expert. He’s been great to work with and we’re thankful he’s on this difficult project.

  19. Vondra Haffner says:

    Good to know you are available in my area. And I feel fortunate to be able to call THE expert who these other large institutions trust.

  20. Francesca Turner says:

    Artworks are indeed to be valued and restored. I think you have a very noble business for doing that.

  21. Howard Ward says:

    We’ve found that Scott is easy to work with and we appreciate his attentive service. He goes the extra mile to help us and he stays in communication… a very nice feature.

  22. Gibson says:

    We, at the Utah State University Museum, have felt isolated away from professional help over the years and we are thankful to meet up with Scott who will go the extra mile to take care of our needs and be an asset to our collection care.

  23. glitterqueen says:

    Our organization is named in the video and we love working with Scott. He provides excellent quality professional service not only to us but we get good reports back from people whom we refer.

  24. EarthCitizen says:

    We had a pioneer family portrait that was damaged. It wasn’t worth anything but Scott treated us like we were important clients, answered all our questions and did amazing work fixing a huge rip in the face and making it disappear. Wow.

  25. Damian says:

    I liked your interesting video very much. It touches on your work with all the main players in the Salt Lake City area and inspired confidence in your abilities.

  26. Clint Standard says:

    I am beginning to depend on Scott when evaluating new works of art I am thinking of buying. The insights and questions he asks don’t even enter my mind. And, he hasn’t charged me yet! His conservation work has been first class.

  27. Clark Rodriguez says:

    Everything you said ahead of time about our project happened as promised and you delivered with excellent service and excellent quality work. Thank you.

  28. Scott M. Haskins says:

    Thanks Adrian. I too have been enjoying our discussions.

  29. Adrian Adira says:

    I want to say that working with Scott is easy. He is not some uppity sophisticated professional who talks down to you. He’s attentive and personal and I have LOVED working with him on our family’s paintings.

  30. Scott M. Haskins says:

    Thanks Anderson for the comment and I too am enjoying meeting with you and discussing whatever comes up. The Paul Lauritz was not in your plans yet you trusted us to make it perfect when your experience in the past was not up to your expectations. I’m gratified that your reactions to our conservation work has been so enthusiastic. Thank you for trusting us.

  31. Anderson says:

    I missed calling you on some projects over the years even though I knew of you. I’m repenting! Working with you these last few months has been a breath of fresh air compared to my previous experience.

  32. Bake Adams says:

    I was calling around about the cleaning of a large painting we own and I called a local restorer who told me to call you! Wohoa! I guess you are the man! When will you be in town next? Nice video, btw. It gave me a good idea about your extensive experience and gave me confidence to contact you.
