Testimonial…

The following is a testimonial from a customer regarding our restoration services,

Richard of RPS Fireplaces undertook a sandblasting and pewter polishing of my 1930s cast iron fireplace, as part of a rear extension project.

The quality of workmanship was exceptional, and the fireplace was transformed from a boring white gloss finish to a truly stunning metallic finish.  Richard picked up and returned the fireplace efficiently, and the cost of the service was very reasonable.  I would have no qualms about recommending RPS’ services to others. Thanks Richard!

Fireplace restored and refitted in Teddington (TW11), Twickenham.

We removed an original Victorian cast iron tiled combination from a beautiful house over looking the wall to Hampton Court. The fireplace was sandblasted and rebuilt including some extensive repairs before being refinished in our heatproof black spray paint and refitted on a slate hearth. We also installed a limestone flat Victorian reproduction surround along with a cast iron arch on a granite hearth for future use as a gas fireplace.

Marble fireplaces restored and installed in Sevenoaks (TN13), Kent.

We removed and restored 6 marble surrounds in Sevenoaks, we also restored 5 cast iron inserts for use with the surrounds, sandblasting and refinishing them in grate polish,  supplied 2 Abbey Fireplaces Telford arches in a grate polish finish and 1 massive bespoke Carrara marble reproduction of a Victorian corbel surround. Unbelievably this was only stage one and there are more fireplaces going in for stage 2!! Keep an eye out on www.facebook.com/rpsfireplaces for the pictures coming soon.

    Restoration and installation of original cast iron Victorian surrounds in Beckenham (BR3), Kent.

    We were contacted by a customer at the very beginning of a massive refurbishment project in Beckenham,  the client wanted 5 cast iron fireplaces and 2 marble surrounds to be removed, restored and refitted with slate hearths. All for use as working fireplaces. The customer was keen to use a company capable of doing all the work in house. We removed 2 Victorian bedroom combination fireplaces, 2 Victorian tiled combination fireplaces and 1 cast iron surround and insert along with 2 huge statuary marble surrounds, similar to normal carrera but with a much whiter background. All the fireplaces were taken back to our workshop and the team began work sandblasting, rebuilding and refinishing the cast iron fireplaces, while the marble was stripped into individual panels and polished before being rebuilt. Today after an entire week of work in the workshop and half a week of installation we finished the job. Pics coming soon.
