We’ve been providing art conservation and painting restoration services to private clients in Las Vegas for many years but only on an “on demand” basis. 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 other projects pick up and delivery. Fortunately, it doesn’t all depend on work to be done only in the Las Vegas area. Our lab is located in Santa Barbara, CA but we do work for clients all over the Western US and we work on murals nationally.
See a quick video tour or our lab:
We are very active in the Salt Lake City area where we do art conservation and restoration work for the LDS Church History Department and Church History Museum, the Daughter of the Utah Pioneers, The Springville Art Museum and many private collectors. So, right now, we are driving through Las Vegas every 6 weeks or so.
Give us a call to discuss your needs, and schedule and see if we can meet soon.

I wanted to agree with everyone here and say that you do great work! It is amazing, after watching some of your YouTube videos, what you can really do with a painting that is in need of repairs. Keep up the great work!
Thanks for you comment!
Have you ever thought about branching out across the country? Or in your case, is it easier to travel to locations and do the work yourself with your own team?
I really don’t like the business model of multiple locations. Its not a profession that lends itself to franchising. There is no high volume aspect to the treatments we offer and the services are often custom-type professional responses.
Just the fact that you are willing to provide some sort of estimate of the cost to restore art is a lot more than some of the others people that I know will do this.
Linnea, give me a call!805 564 3438
Excellent video Scott. It does a great job showing what you do and how you can help an art lover!
Do you have any sort of mailing list or newsletter that you send out on a regular basis? I would like to sign up if so.
Gary, in the upper right corner of the webpage is the sign up box.
What is the max distance you would travel for a restoration job?
Danny, we pick up and deliver through San Diego, OC, LA and up to Santa Barbara, Las Vegas and SLC.
Thanks again Scott. The consultation that you provided for us was amazing. You made my husband feel good about the fact that we had an option to get our painting fixed. Thank you!
The minute that I saw our painting was going to need work, I was not sure if I would find anyone near where we lived. I was so happy that Scott from FACL was available for a consultation and within a few weeks our painting looked as good as new 🙂 We are so happy!
I didn’t realize that you take on speaking engagements. That is great! That way people can learn about the process and know there is a solution to a painting in poor condition.
John, what I usually talk about is the care and preservation of the things we have at home that make up our family history, like, documents, artwork, family bibles etc. I spoke this last year at an event for the City of Las Vegas (Click here to see event)
The work that you do for private people and organizations is top notch. So many people would assume that when a painting is ripped or faded that there would be nothing they can do about it. Thank you!
I never really thought about the legal part of knowing this type of thing. that makes perfect sense though. In an insurance case, especially with a painting that is worth a lot of money, testimony from a professional would be key.
There is a lot to learn here. And, Scott, you seem like the perfect person to teach us all! I would really like to be able to watch a complete restoration for myself.
Its a process that is slow going and you’d probably fall asleep. We don’t hit anything with a mop! Also, the process can take days or weeks.
This is one great interesting site! Also, it is nice to see that you provide us a few videos to watch while we are learning about art preservation and things like that!
Jane, thanks for the comment.
Thank you for the great work that you do. I have a painting, it is a small one, but it has a tear in the corner by the wooden framing. Is that something that you might be able to fix up?
Hi Marjorie, yes give me a call and we’ll discuss. 805 564 3438 Scott
I see a couple of people asking about the length of the process. I am also wondering that. I am in no hurry, but if I were to get my painting restored, it would be on a time table that is quite short. Does that work for your company?
Yes, Judy, give me a call! 805 564 3438 Scott
I didn’t realize that you did speaking events! That is a great idea and I would love for you to talk to my art students at some point. I think they would really appreciate the work that you can do for damaged paintings and other art!
I’d be happy to Sallie. Give me a call 805 564 3438 Scott
I love my paintings, so it is nice to know that if anyone purchases a painting of mine and it happens to need a repair that Scott and his team are there and ready to help out! Thank you so much. You provide a great, valuable service!
Thanks Hazel for the nice comment and compliments. Its a pleasure working with you too.
Thank you Scott. You have provided a great service for my family on a painting that has been in our family for more than 50 years! We could not be more happy and I hope that more people take my testimonial to heart!
Thanks Doreen. It was a real pleasure to meet your family and, of course, we enjoyed having your painting in the lab. We love being around beautiful art.
When you take a look at a painting that needs “typical” work done to clean it up and bring it back to life, how long does that process take?
If its an easy cleaning of grime or smoke/nicotine (and obviously revarnish) then we could feasibly do it in a couple of weeks. If there are structural problems to correct and/or the cleaning is difficult, we could take 4-6 weeks. It depends on your needs and our schedule… and how big the project is.
Thanks for this info. I looked over what is available as far as professional art restoration services go in LV and you are heads and shoulders above anything else around. Talk to you soon.
Thanks Archie! Call our office at 805 564 3438. TTYS
My insurance claims adjuster told me to look up your info and I’m convinced you’re “the guy.” We’ll give you a call after the weekend.
Thanks Leo. Call me on my mobile at 805 570 4140. TTYS

Thank you for your comments here… most useful. Thank you so much for this good article.
I have a pastel on paper by Albert Groll that needs restoration and I’m so glad I found FACL. Finding someone in Las Vegas to do this type of work is challenging, to say the least. Scott was very helpful over the phone in offering advice on the restoration and I look forward to meeting him to talk about the process.
Thanks for your call and I look forward to meeting with you personally to look at your item.
I have a Land Grant from 1771 transferring ownership of land to my ancestor in Virginia signed by -it looks like a Lord Admiral Nelson. It is faded and has some holes in it. Do you do documents like that and that old, and if so what would be a very rough estimate, and if not, do you have someone you can refer me too. I live in Las Vegas Nevada.
James, Sorry I’m slow in getting back to you. I was in Washington DC for a meeting. Call me at my office and we’ll discuss the options. 805 564 3438
Thanks for posting this video and page. I’ve been looking and shall call you…
I found the other “restoration folks” in LV to be way below the quality of professionals that I was looking for. What a relief to find Scott and his company. I called and had a great conversation. He made a visit to our office, inspected our project, answered out questions and helped us immeasurably.
I called Scott and found him knowledgeable and helpful. His schedule to come through Las Vegas and meet me looks like its going to be very accommodating and I’m looking forward to meeting with him at no charge.
Thanks for the great info. I need you! I’ll call.
Thank you for your excellent service this last week. I appreciate the deliver and the excellent quality art restoration work. Working with your lab has been a real pleasure.
I am very pleased with the work FACL did on my comic book art damaged in shipping. Your quality work, good communications, delivery and professionalism made my first experience with you very pleasant. It will not be my last and, in fact, I look forward to working with you again.
Thanks for leaving a comment Gary. Yes, we help evaluate and settle insurance claims often. Your insurance company will pay for the evaluation and report. Our work has been well thought of and endorsed by Chubb, Farmers, State Farm, Chartis and many others. Several disaster clean up companies us our services such as Belfor, ServPro and others.

My husband and I have a painting on canvas. The painting is placed above our fireplace & we have found 3/4 in cracks in numerous places on the canvas. Is this something you can assist with?
Raymer and Venetta Pry
Thanks for leaving your question Venetta. I called you back and left a message. I’d be happy to talk to you and, also, I will be in your area next week and we could meet if you like.
We had a valuable artifact marked with a Sharpie the other day. Can you take it off?! Let’s talk right away please! BTW, thanks for having this webpage set up. I found you searching the internet.
Yes, Miriam, we take Sharpie (permanent marker) off of things all the time. Of course the idea is to remove it and have the item looked undamaged and as it was prior to the tagging but the surface that is marked and its fragile nature may make it more or less difficult. Give me a call and we’ll discuss the details. I’ll be coming through LV in a few weeks. Thanks for your note. Scott 805 564 3438
Its great to know about your services being available in LV. I have a friend who collects and buys at auction often who lives here. When he recommended you I thought that maybe dealing with someone as far away as you are would make working together difficult. But I spoke with Paul last evening and he told be you went to the auction house in LA for him the other day to inspect his newly acquire paintings and you were able to give him an update on condition and estimates for art conservation. I also heard you were in town last week! If I had known. I appears that you are in my area often and I would very much like to tap into your expertise and help. You are very highly recommended. Shall I just give you a call?
Yes, give me a call and we’ll chat. Looking forward to it.
My grandmother has some art that needs some touch up. Do you think they would do it for her?
Feel free to give me a call at 805 564 3438 and we’ll talk about it. All my best, Scott
I worked with Scott in an assistant capacity 30 years ago and loved his manner and professionalism. You will enjoy meeting him.
Thanks for posting this page. I’ve been looking for an art conservator in Las Vegas and haven’t found someone or gotten a referral I can feel good about. I have a family heirloom that I would die if I lost. I’ll give you a call. With your pick up and delivery service and face to face meeting, I’d like to do that.
Nice to know you work in our area. I’ve been looking for a qualified art conservator but I have found it confusing to be in a city with so much fakery and lack of high quality museums… or even dealers… and to be able to ask for referrals from people I’d trust to know. Thanks for putting up this blog. It’s got great stuff to read. I’d love to see some of your mural restoration projects!
Thanks a lot for sharing this useful information here. I have found this ‘laboratory’ video very interesting one. And I’m excited you are now in our city. I need to have repaired or restored acouple of stained glass pieces and 2 paintings. Also, please confirm, whether you work on ivory conservation as well or not. How is the best way to contact you?
Hi Dee, No, I’m sorry we do not work on ivory. Just paintings. I’m looking forward to connecting with you about your other artwork and I’ll be coming through LV in the next few weeks. Call me at 805 564 3438
I have found this site very helpful. Scott Haskins and his staff are extremely professional. Thanks for providing your services when I needed and really you did a wonderful job. My organization is so satisfied by your top quality services and your timely response in restoring the damaged items here for our office in Las Vegas. Tons of thanks once again
I have a huge wall hanging for my dining hall. But gradually the colors of the textile seem to be washing out, fading or discoloring. Can I call you to come see me when you are in LV next time?
Rosalind, Thanks for your comment. We only specialize in paintings. I could make some suggestions about the amount of light its getting and the way you have it displayed it. Let’s talk and exchange some photos by emails . 805 564 3438
The tour of the fine arts conservation laboratory is amazing. The video is excellent and something that all art history students should see. I wish could come an do a tour of the lab.
Thanks for putting out this information and videos. The second video showing the conservation – restoration laboratory, was really interesting. As an art history student, I have found this website very useful and interesting.
I love paintings and the history of art work. I’m always looking for more ways to learn about this interesting field. In my searches on the internet, Scott Haskins is the name that comes up among the top experts in this field. The science, technology and the workmanship your group is showing, is really awesome. Thanks for sharing such interesting content
This is an ideal site for them who really want to restore and preserve arts and paintings. I love to collect paintings for my home and they are like my treasures, but I was not aware of the preservation and restoration issues. This is good to know!!. The videos are so amazing. Thanks and I’ll sign up for updates.
Wow! I have heard of restoration and conservation before but this site is the ultimate knowledge box. Our company has art work and may need some renovation and restoration services. Now that I’ve looked through your site, I have a better idea of what those services are. I’m going to share this information with our company executives and will get back to you soon. Thanks!
Heritage preservation is what I cherish. I have a collection of antique paintings, wall hangings and statues for my home. I have visited many art museums, galleries, heritage buildings across USA. The way you showed in the video how the professionals are handling and repairing these damaged art works and thereby the equipments and technology involved are really amazing. To preserve a damaged art work requires correct examination and the right treatment as well. Thanks for sharing this video and will be looking for more in future.
I love paintings and have collected a quite a few from different places. But one of my valuable treasures got a kind of water stain on the corners and the flaking is spreading and looks awful. The spot stain is getting darker too. I’ve been wondering how to find an expert and a school friend recommended you and your site. So, please help me!
Hi Katty. Sorry to hear about your damage. The American Institute for Conservation has a referral service. Also there’s another site that refers: http://www.art-care.com Feel free to call us and we can discuss if we can help you. Scott 805 564 3438
