Now we are on Instagram too 🙂
Hope you are all warm and cozy. This is a nice info-graphic & article on bleeding radiators by u-switch – pleased to see they have used antique radiators in the pictures!
Here’s a link to the full article
We reported on this radiator refurbishment project back in January.
Recently the heating contractor sent us a few pics of the radiators after re-installation & we were delighted to receive the following message with them:
“Hi David, It’s taken some time, but photos enclosed. Very, very impressed with your service and radiator finish. I wish we had a greater need for refurbishing of rads, but I will certainly be in touch when we do. Will also mention you to architects I know. Many thanks. Regards, SJW”
If we can do this to a van imagine what we can do for your radiators!
Our client was undertaking a complete renovation of an old manor house in a Wiltshire village and wanted to preserve the antique radiators. Here’s the pics of them when we picked them up, and when we delivered them back. The client chose a lovely gunmetal paint finish for them all.
The larger of these decorative radiators weighed in at 173kg! They are likely to have been manufactured circa 1900 so it is fitting we have just delivered them to an Edwardian townhouse in Bath. They should certainly belt the heat out!
Twenty two radiators removed from a historic house 200 miles away arrived on pallets in October. The rads, mostly four columns, looked tired and were definitely in need of some TLC.
Thankfully most tested fine i.e. they were watertight both before and after shot-blasting. David repaired a couple of the longer ones. Plenty of coats of off-white paint and they looked really smart.
Here they are all ready for the long journey back to their seaside home.
Reclaimed radiators was pleased to turn this job around in a little over four weeks, a week ahead of schedule.
This one took some sourcing! A client wanted a fairly high BTU output radiator for their house restoration project in Dorset. The catch? Low enough to fit under the cupboards. Old cast iron rads this long and low are quite uncommon. As soon as this little beauty (Ideal, four columns, 18 inch high, neo-classic and a whopping 22 sections long) came up for sale, it had their name on it!
Glorious sunny weather today for delivery of a freshly restored vintage radiator to a prestigious house currently undergoing refurbishment in Bath. Tourists were out in force snapping pics of the Reclaimed Radiators Van (!). Did you know the original architect, John Wood the Elder, based the diameter of the Circus in Bath on the 318 foot diameter of Stonehenge?!
