We removed, sandblasted the cast iron original Victorian tiled combination then refinished in a heatproof matt black paint. The tiles were removed, cleaned and refitted and the whole fireplace was refitted on a slate hearth
The cast iron surround was initially pinstalled with an ugly tiled block and painted brown with many layers of paint. We removed and sandblasted before refinishing with a satin White and installing with an original tiled insert from our stock and a bespoke slate hearth and gas coal effect fire.
“You’ve done a wonderful job and it looks amazing”
We removed an original slate surround for restoration, originally the slate was covered in black laquer with a marbelised pattern. The customer felt it was too dark for the room but rather than replace it with a limestone/ white marble surround we stripped it and polished it out before rebuilding the surround and painting it white, it was then installed with a plain highlighted cast iron arch for use as a gas fire with slate hearth.

We returned to an old customers property to remove an old tired liver Marble arched fire surround, the surround want to the customers taste so was to be replaced but at 72″ it would need a big surround to take its place. We commissioned a 72″ Carrera marble fireplace to be made to replace the old one, installed it along with the original arched insert which had been sandblasted and restored at our workshop in Sydenham (SE26). The fireplace was reinstated with a slate hearth for solid fuel use. Uncategorized
