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. Uncategorized
