Fireplace restored and installed in Teddington (TW11), South West London.

We removed an Edwardian cast iron surround and tiled insert a few weeks ago for restoration. TheĀ  fireplaces were sandblasted and refinished in a traditional grate polish finish, tiles were changed to customers preference. Then the fireplace was reinstated for purely decorative use with hearth to be tiled at a later date by the customer. image

Fireplaces restored and installed in Wanstead (E11), East London.

We restored two antique cast iron inserts, they were sandblasted and refinished in matt black with new firebricks and installed them in Wanstead. One was installed with a slate hearth and a bespoke pine surround in a white primer for use as a gas coal effect fire and the other was installed with a slate hearth but purely for decorative use. image

Restoration and fitting in Beckenham (BR3), Kent.

We removed an original Victorian green marble effect slate surround and tiled insert for restoration. The slate surround was separated into panels and re-polished before being re-assembled. The cast iron insert was sandblasted and refinished in a matt black paint and the whole fireplace was reinstated for solid fuel use. The plasterwork is still to be done and the fireplace is freshly oiled. image
