Best Repair - Carpets, Expensive
Restoration by Costikyan
28-13 14th Street, Long Island City
800-247-7847


This is the place for carpets with a price tag and a pedigree; work is pricey but masterful and meticulous. Cleaning a nine-by-twelve-foot Oriental is $350 to $400; an Aubusson, about $500; a more delicate carpet with silk in it, $500 to $600. In addition to standard repairs (refringing two ends of a nine-by-twelve-foot Oriental runs $500 to $700; hand-binding the non-fringed sides, about $750), Costikyan does tedious and time-consuming reweaving (a twelve-inch square would cost about $2,500; merely patching it about $600).
