Expert Witness Testimonial – Charles Bonner, Attorney in San Francisco, CA

“Scott, you may be the best conservator I know in the country. I have enjoyed working with you more than I can express.” Perry Huston, Past President American Institute From Conservation, Dallas, Texas

“This was a very politically charged project in the City of San Francisco for over 10 years. We needed someone beyond reproach that we could count on to “knock the ball out of the park.” That’s why we chose Scott Haskins and FACL. Mr. Al Albano, Consultant, Piazzoni Mural Project, Asian Art Museum, San Francisco.

Scott and his staff performed perfectly and did superb quality conservation work on this very delicate painting conservation project. His skills as Conservation Team Leader were superb and much appreciated. Dr. Carl Grim, Chief Conservator, De Young Museum

“Scott , The delivery and work was superb and we are very thankful for your excellent skills and for the return of a piece we love. “ Sincerely Michael and David, West Hollywood, CA

“Dear Scott & FACL, Inc. Staff, YOU ARE ALL THE BEST!!!! The painting looked GREAT and I’m happy. I look forward to working more with you! My very best,” Dennis Marchesi, Marchesi & Co., Desert Springs, CA

Mark Garrido, Project Manager for the General Contractor on the project posted the following on Linkedin.com for Fine Art Conservation Laboratories (FACL, Inc.).

“Scott and his FACL staff of highly competent professional art conservators performed the critical salvage and restoration of a very valuable, irreplaceable historic mural in the main lobby of the Burbank, CA Police/Fire headquarters (as a sub to the general contractor for the City of Burbank). This restoration was a major component of a large water damage correction project that included replacement of the curtain wall system, stone flooring, planters and memorial monument in the middle of and surrounding the mural. Project scheduling was very tight and coordination critical and complex. Under Scott’s hands-on leadership, FACL’s restoration of the mural was flawless, their performance timely and seamless and their cooperation and team work exemplary. Without reservation, I give Scott and FACL my highest recommendation.”   Service Category: Art conservation. Year hired: 2009  Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

The conservation services, expertise and availability of FACL’s consultations have been of the highest quality and very important to our department (curatorial). In addition, we have greatly appreciated Scott’s willingness to speak at functions, put on workshops for our docents and be an active part of our professional services. We have also greatly appreciated FACL’s flexibility with our budget restraints!” Theresa Manalo, Curator, The Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles, CA

“The Santa Barbara Museum of Art is so lucky to have a professional conservator of such quality and professionalism right in our own town. FACL is a great resource for us.” Dr. Robert Henning, Chief Curator

“Scott, you provided the exact services we needed and did a wonderful job (consulting on mold damage on art in a historic structure). Thank you so much for your help. We look forward to a good working relationship with FACL into the future.” Brent G. Thompson, Director Historical Department, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“Thank you for the excellent service and over the top quality workmanship for the conservation of our damaged items. I appreciate your timely response and I am 100% pleased with the results and services provided by FACL.” Insurance claim by Lucinda Bliss, Insured with Chartis Insurance Co.(aka AIG)

“We would have been in big trouble and you made our navigation through the City (Dallas) and with the project’s architects streamlined and professional. Your quality services and reputation were cemented in our minds when we heard the inspector say they didn’t need to inspect your work for final quality – un heard of in our industry!” Tim Storms , Roberts-Obrien Construction, General Contractor

“Scott enabled our settlement to be acceptable to both the Dept. of Labor and the artist. His expertise and professionalism proved invaluable.” Steven Schwartz, attorney for Dept. of Labor, Public art suit. http://usip.com/pdf/Recent_Articles/Intellectual-Property-Today.pdf

“Thank you for spending some time with me last Friday afternoon. I very much appreciate your tour of the Fine Art Conservation Lab. I feel like I’ve discovered a new treasure! Thank you too, for the copy of your book. I am still shaking my head in wonder at having crossed paths with you (the author) in the aftermath of losing our home and contents in the Tea fire.” Jennifer Taylor, Director of Internships, Westmont College, Santa Barbara, CA

“Scott, you (FACL) met my expectations, which was a perfect job. My absolute confidence in your work was absolutely confirmed. Thanks so much.” Jay Friedman, Santa Barbara

After having worked with Scott Haskins on a collection conservation assessment survey, Wendy Adair, VP at Texas Southern University in Houston, TX stated, “That was the best money we ever spent. I can’t tell you how much we have enjoyed working with you!” http://www.tsumurals.org

Hey there!

I can’t tell you how happy I am with your work on the portrait. It is just killer! ( I’m a guy, so I hate using words like fabulous or breathtaking) I find myself walking into the living room at least a couple of times a day and just staring at it. I can’t thank you all enough for a job well done. Please let everyone at FACL all know.
All our best from here at the Reagan Library.

After being selected in a competitive selection process, a four year project in Cedar Rapids Iowa City Hall involved working with departments in City Hall and other interested parties during the phases of working on each of the four murals to remove overpaint, clean, inpaint, consolidate detachments, and varnish. Production of media materials for public outreach and fundraising was also part of the project.

Testimonial from Idaho

A testimonial from a US military base

“Mr. Haskins, B. Gen Chuck Yeager was here (Edwards Air Force Base) last week and we told him about your wonderful help with the signature wall in P-1. Talk to you soon!” From Major Hutchison.

Over my professional career I’ve had many opportunities to work on military bases on historical murals, mostly. But my visit to Edwards Air Force Base was a bit different… they had a Flyer’s Wall in the Officer’s Club on base with signatures of many great and notable pilots. Major Hutchison was very interested in preserving the historical signatures on the wall and as we chatted I expressed a dream of mine to fly the speed of sound (or break the sound barrier). Shortly thereafter, this wonderful gesture on her part arrived in the mail, which I was thrilled to receive! I consider Brigadier General Chuck Yeager’s breaking of the sound barrier a major technological and heroic event in my lifetime.

  10. Celia de la Garza says:

    I was recently tasked with managing my late grandfather’s collection of Spanish Colonial paintings, and had no idea how to begin. Fortunately, I found Scott Haskins. Scott is extremely knowledgeable and patient, and answered all my questions, even the ones I didn’t know to ask. He clearly has a passion for art and the preservation of history. When the time comes to begin restoration, I will be entrusting the paintings to his care.

  11. Meet S says:

    I have a largish oil painting on canvas done by an uncle of mine which has not been cared for well and has a couple of small tears; I have it rolled in a tube. It has some sentimental value and I would like to hang it if I can make it presentable within reasonable costs.

    it is about 30X50 inches and about 70 years old; I just want it cleaned and minor repairs done on it. Do you have any idea how much it will cost so I may make a decision to proceed or not.

    • Scott M. Haskins says:

      There are quite a few questions we need to discuss before I can answer your questions. My answers may generate other questions for you. Its best if we talk on the phone. Call my mobile at 805 570 4140, Scott

    I want to thank Scott for taking the time on a Sunday to speak to me about the repair process for a specific mural. He thoroughly explained what needed to be done and was happy to answer additional questions I had. I would highly recommend FACL for any of your art repair needs. Thanks again, Scott!

  16. Thanks again, Scott, for your great expertise and generosity in helping our nonprofit deal with our mural restoration issue. We have a plan in place and will continue to work with your insights guiding our process. FACL is truly helpful – a life-saver.

  17. Thanks, Scott, for your amazing and detailed support for restoring our beloved mural. We had a significant issue regarding restoration, and FACL is helping us through the problem. We support young adults with meals, educational experiences and service opportunities. Our mural is the face of our organization. As a Director of a nonprofit, I have worked with many people who give of their time and expertise to those in need, but have not found a more generous and knowledgeable expert in any field than Scott at FACL. Thanks again!

  18. Charlotte Mason says:

    My husband and I were very cautious when looking for a professional art restorer ( we learned that the actual professional term is art conservator) to whom we wanted to entrust our inherited ripped painting. After several disappointing attempts we found FACL’s great website and interesting educational videos and we were very hopeful. Scott Haskins came to our home in Dana Point and explained clearly the options, processes and we enjoyed the visit very much. Today, just as FACL promised, our painting was returned to us and I was very amazed at the exceptional repair. Our painting looks better than we expected! The rip is completely non detectable with no patch. I couldn’t be more amazed at the magic of the wonderful work and professional service. Thank you!!!!

  19. Brett Vanderford says:

    FACL restored an early 20th century pastel for me and they did an amazing job. Scott is very knowledgeable, plus he is a genuinely nice person and loves what he does. In addition to the restoration work, he had it matted and framed and it came out beautifully. Francesca, his office manager, is also pleasant to work with and great at what she does. I highly recommend FACL for any art restoration project and wouldn’t hesitate to use their services again.

    • Scott M. Haskins says:

      Thank you Brett for leaving this nice comment… and thank you for trusting us with your nice piece of art.

  20. Harmony says:

    I just had Scott and Diane come to my house to restore and protect a mural that is very close to my heart. It was painted by my good friend David Legaspi, who passed away several years ago – way too soon. All who knew him miss him dearly and his legacy lives on through his art all over Southern California. FACL helped to preserve this important legacy. Not only are Scott and Diane wonderful to be around, but they are hands down the best in the business!! Scott’s expertise and experience allows him to handle any circumstance to ensure that the art will live on in peak form. Thank you so much, Scott and Diane!! I’m very grateful. So glad that I found FACL!

    • Scott M. Haskins says:

      Thanks Harmony for your nice comments and for the opportunity to work with you on your mural. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

  21. Sonja says:

    Appreciate Mr. Haskins’ quick return of a phone call from AZ inquiring about conservation of family painting. Looking forward to his suggestions for next steps and working with FACL.

  22. Jerren Eldridge says:

    I contacted FACL in October 2015 regarding an oil painting that has been part of my wife’s family for decades. Scott Haskins promptly returned my phone call and gave me details about their repair and restoration processes and experience working with several art galleries locally in Laguna Beach. We researched other local companies only to find that their processes did not seem as thorough and detailed as those used by FACL. I am confident that FACL is the right choice!

  23. GeneB says:

    Scott,
    This was the first time I have had to search out conservation services for a fine art oil painting I recently purchased. Your prompt reply to my initial email and our subsequent conversation helped me evaluate my options. I sincerely appreciated your suggestions for an easily done test to see if the slight damage was in the varnish or extended into the painting itself. As soon as my options are clear from the shipper who created the problem, I will be in touch as I have decided that your professional attention to my needs is the best way to return this painting to the best possible condition.
    Thank you from Henderson, Nevada
    GeneB

    Scott, I am a working artist and discovered an unusual anomaly in my recently finished painting. I asked around the local art supply stores, called a representative from a paint company, art store manager, and no one seemed to have any answers. I found your website on-line and called. You answered the call and provided some professional expertise on the spot. I am now in the process of “restoring” my own painting. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Wayne Rivard

    That testimonial page is very useful, thanks.

  30. Alex says:

    Your testimonials blog summary is very useful…thanks for sharing it.

  31. Brock says:

    I appreciate your video testimonials which are really impressive.

  32. Mrs. June says:

    I enjoyed the videos and would/could make one also applauding the service and quality of FACL, Scott Haskins and his team. We would not go anywhere else for help. I appreciate especially the collecting tips Scott has shared saving us $10,000s.

  33. We have trusted FACL in Santa Barbara since 2002 with all our work, especially with our most difficult restoration projects, knowing that the art conservation treatments will be done right the first time.

  34. Bappy says:

    Wendy Adair told me she has the highest regard for Scott Haskins and his work. She has loved working with him.

  35. Julie Beck says:

    Thanks for these testimonials. They were helpful.

  36. Mark says:

    Nice testimonials. You sound like you know what you are doing.

  37. Samuel Machen says:

    I can “second” the testimonials on this page. I have had the pleasure of doing business with FACL several times and their work is always 1st class. But one thing that is also important to me, especially when I sell something, is that dealers and the auction houses recognize FACL’s label and know Scott Haskins and recognize the quality work. His reputation precedes him.

  38. Megan Delacroix says:

    Scott’s been working with us in part as a conservator on our very large historic preservation project (we are Historic Preservation Designer architects) and partly as a consultant who helps us keep quality control on an artist whose new mural work must blend with the historic mural work. THANK GOODNESS for Scott and that he is on our project!!! Scott’s problem solving, his attention to construction timelines, his immediate response when we had a water main burst and his quality work were extremely important on this project. I don’t think the artist would have ever “dialed in” his work without Scott. I’ve enjoyed working with him immensely and I am thankful he was with us on this project.

      Thanks Megan for the posting. Its been a BIG project and one that I have been honored to be a part of. I have enjoyed working with your company and personnel very much.

  39. Madison Kohen says:

    We have worked with Scott and his team on several projects and have loved working with him. We felt comfortable with his consultation and the other conservators are “on it” too.

  40. Janet Stevens says:

    Thanks for posting these. Very helpful.

  41. John Clark says:

    Kudos to Scott and rest of the FACL team for pulling off this extraordinary feat! They have with their tremendous skill and perseverance made the S.F residents proud.

    Thanks for leaving the comment Dan. George Stern Fine Arts was in charge of a large estate of paintings by well known Otis Art Institute Director E. Roscoe Shrader. We at Fine Art Conservation Laboratories had the honor of doing the conservation work on 100’s of paintings. The show/exhibition/sale of the entire collection at George Stern Fine Arts and the resulting book was so successful that the exhibit was shown at the Laguna Art Museum. Here’s a quick video of the opening evening at the museum: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSGU_aSYqlA

    Wow, that was some awesome collection in “Here Is George Stern Fine Arts in West Hollywood, CA” Video. There were only 4 paintings shown and I would like to see more of your work at his gallery.
