The Art & Science of Conservation

Conservation, the preservation, repair, and prevention of deterioration in historical and cultural monuments, sites, and artifacts is a highly specialized field that requires broad scientific knowledge of materials, chemistry, and geology, and surgeon-like hand skills to carry out the treatments. 

EverGreene conservation professionals come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, and hold graduate-level degrees. Many are peer-reviewed Professional Associates of the AIC (American Institute for the Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works.) We follow the AIC Code of Ethics, and ensure that the methods and materials we chose do not adversely affect the historic material and are reversible, so future conservators are able to apply new techniques and technologies to their work. 

EverGreene specializes in the conservation of historic finishes, including plaster, paint (oil, distemper, casein, acrylic), glazes, transparent coatings, and metallic leaf. We have extensive experience in other interior materials, including stone, wood, metal, and tile. We provide full conservation services, from conditions assessments, treatment testing and design, through implementation, EverGreene can help you bring your historic treasures back to life and protect them for the future.
