12 cast iron fireplaces for restoration in central London.

We removed 12 complete antique cast iron fireplaces including 5 cast iron surrounds and inserts, the biggest tiled combination I have ever seen and 6 matching combination fireplaces from a Victorian office block renovation. We were given a 3 week deadline to remove, restore and refit them. The restoration took a little over 2 weeks to complete, luckily there wasn’t a single polished fire among the 12! When it came time to refit them all with new slate hearths, we booked an entire week out with our 3 fitters and they still ended up working 12 hour days.

Fireplace restoration in Tooting (SW17), South West London.

We removed an old tiled combination fireplace heavily covered in many years of white paint. The Edwardian fireplace was then sandblasted back to its raw metal state and refinished with a white outer and black middle paint effect. The finished fireplace was then installed for solid fuel use on a new slate hearth.
