Uniqueness, lead-time and availability of equipment replacement play into the restoration decision of equipment that is “one off” and “custom built”. High end custom machinery may need repaired due to no stock replacement parts- in this case restoration is an effective and valid option. In other cases common items heavily damaged may be easily replaced due to restoration not being a cost effective option. Parts availability and obsolescence of machinery should be considered as well as machines that need guards, are not up to code or meet current standards. Restoration contractors that understand the nuances of machinery and equipment often take jobs away from others who offer limited services and have little or no knowledge of the complete restoration concept of simultaneous contents and structure recovery efforts so that must all items are brought back on-line at the same time.
