Sometimes a key may stick, a pedal might squeak or a note may not play correctly, if at all.  Many times it's just a simple repair or adjustment.  Most common problems can be repaired on-the-spot.  Sometimes a few parts need replacing, but generally good pianos need only normal maintenance.

Other times, if a piano is old or getting old, more parts may need replacing.  This is where rebuilding begins.  The action (moving parts) may need to be rebuilt with new parts.  The piano may need new strings and tuning pins if the piano cannot be tuned.

Rebuilding can be done in stages, or all at once.  A complete restoration would include a piano case refinishing as well as a full rebuild.  There are many options in deciding when to rebuild, how much to rebuild or even if it's the best idea.  These decisions are personal and will vary case to case.

Buying a piano that has already been rebuilt or restored is another option.
