Restoration – Slate Fireplace

We have restored hundreds, if not thousands, of slate fireplaces over the years so we have truly perfected the art of marbleising. The slate surround was primed by stripping the fireplace down into pieces and removing the old paint. All chips and cracks were repaired and the fireplace was reassembled.

We marbleised the fireplace black with gold panels, as selected by the owner of the fireplace from a large choice of colours. The cast iron insert was stripped and polished by hand after we had replaced the missing grates. To complete the restoration the customer selected a suitable set of original Victorian tiles from our reclaimed collection.
