12 Victorian fireplaces removed, restored and reinstalled in Clapham (SW4), South West London.

A huge restoration of a 2 side by side propertys in Clapham, derelict for years. An exciting project to be part of, both houses completely restored to there former glory. Project consisted off removing 8 Victorian cast iron surrounds and 1 slate surround. All cast iron restored to a highlighted finish and the slate surround stripped and polished before being rebuilt. We supplied a number of reproduction cast iron tiled inserts supplied from www.abbeyfireplaceslondon.com  and  3 carrara marble surrounds . All fireplaces were installed as purely decorative items with slate hearths. Pics to be posted to www.facebook.com/rpsfireplaces soon.

Victorian Fireplace restoration and fitting in Kew (TW9), Surrey.

We restored a Victorian slate surround and 2 cast iron Victorian tiled inserts for a customer in Kew. The slate surround was stripped back to individual panels and rebuilt, the slate as is often the case was assembled from multi coloured slate so it was given a light coat of paint to make it indistinguishable from oiled black slate. One fireplace was installed as a a purely decorative install, the other installed with a bespoke gas fire.

Testimonial from restoration customer

We took on a job recasting a cast iron front bar for a customer, we rebuilt the front bar in a 2 pack filler before sending it away for casting in iron at a foundry. Below is the customer feedback.
Excellent service and quality of work – well done RPS Fireplaces & thanks Richard R. Seville

Fireplace fitted in West Norwood (SE27), South East London.

We were called in by a customer who had purchased an original fireplace, unfortunately it had been badly installed by the previous firm. We had to cut the plaster away and remove the tiled combination fireplace, remove all backfill from the chamber and then carefully reinstall the tiles correctly before refitting and plastering the fireplace ready for use as a solid fuel fireplace.
