Restoration of 4 fireplaces in Crystal Palace , South East London (SE19).

We ambitiously took on a restoration job for the complete refurb of 4 fireplaces with the caveat that we only had 3 days to do it, including removal and restoration of the inserts!! Monday saw us begin the job with 1 team removing all the cast iron arched inserts from the fireplaces and prepping the chambers and another team working on running the cast iron inserts back to the workshop (luckily only 10 minutes away) and sandblasting them before rebuilding and refinishing including new firebricks. The fireplaces were then reinstalled over the next 2 days with marble reproduction surrounds and slate hearths for use as working fireplaces.

Clapham North restoration and reinstall.

We have picked up where the contractor left off on the restoration of 8 cast iron fireplaces in Clapham. The fireplaces had been partially stripped with paint stripper. We have now removed all 8 surrounds for sandblasting and highlighting, they will be reinstated with slate hearths and reproduction cast iron tiled inserts. We are also restoring a slate surround and reinstalling with a reproduction cast iron tiled insert and slate hearth and supplying 3 reproduction marble surrounds along with tiled inserts and slate hearths. We will do before and after pictures in January when it’s all back in looking amazing!

Feedback from a recent restoration project in Croydon.

We removed and fully polished an original cast iron tiled fireplace, the fireplace was reinstalled with a new bespoke gas coal effect fire.

“Many thanks for the works done on my fireplace – which we Love by the way.”

“With both the removal and installation the guys worked efficiently and were extremely polite and thoughtful.”
