Sincerely, Robert C

My association with D&R Restoration and Conservation Group began when I bought a badly treated chest, and asked the dealer to recommend someone to do the work.  I was given two business cards and phoned D&R first.  After talking with David, I was sure he would do the job well.   David did a wonderful job restoring the chest, and since has worked on an 18th century chest on chest and a linen press.  He also re-glued chairs and restored a leg on my early 19th cenutry dining table.  Some of the repairs had not been done because of my concern about a botched job.   My wholehearted recommendation is, if you want the best quality work, don’t hesitate to call D&R Restoration and Conservation Group.

To Whom It May Concern: Mr. David Rickard of D & R Restorations was highly recommended to me by an Antique and Antiquities Dealer in Alexandria.  I was looking to have my antique buffet repaired and restored.  I could not trust just anyone with the care of this piece, which I have owned for some thirty- three years and dearly love. He picked it up at no charge to me.  Worked on it and delivered it, again at no charge to me.  I was extremely anxious to see the work … my expectations were not only met, but exceeded.  The quality of his handiwork and the obvious care he took to restore it to its previous splendor was almost beyond words.  You had to see a before and after snapshot to fully appreciate the magnitude of the work he had done!  The price he quoted was fair and the finished price was within the estimated amount.  He fully delivered on his word. I would highly recommend his work as a professional that takes great care with the pieces he works on – it clearly is a passion to him; not just a job.
