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.Uncategorized
