Careful transport of original radiators is so important – this poor 2 column arrived in a VW Golf (!) and subsequently failed it’s pressure test. In the second photo you can see it taken apart for repair. The third photo shows a fully restored 2 column radiator – good as new!
We’ve just delivered a collection of traditional cast iron radiators to a private client who owns an apartment in Aberdeen Place, London. Our client already had some antique radiators, which were in need of refurbishment. We reconditioned her radiators and supplied in time for Christmas! As she was completely renovating her period property, we also supplied a number of additional cast iron radiators to match the existing system. More pics to follow when the project is complete.
If you are looking for original cast iron radiators in London, although we are based in the South West we are happy to supply – so please take a look at our website and pick up the phone for a no-obligation quote. Our prices are highly competitive and we are happy to supply references should you need them.
We restore traditional radiator valves and were commissioned by a customer who was struggling to source someone with the necessary expertise. David has reconditioned many antique radiator valves and was really pleased with the results achieved here. Old radiator valves are really tricky to find, good modern valves can be expensive, so if you have some then consider yourself lucky and get them restored!
First he removed the wooden wheelheads and descaled the valves. He then removed all the old fragments of paint. The valves were taken apart, repacked inside with fibre washers, then the brass rubbed down and polished.
David then carefully put the valves put back together and pressure tested each one to 4 bar. They were given a final wipe down before they were returned to the customer.
If you are looking for an antique radiator valve restoration service please get in touch because we would love to help. Take a look at the Reclaimed Radiator website or give David Lucas a call.
As well as stocking a huge range of antique cast iron radiators, we can also refurbish your existing radiators. If you have a stash of old radiators in your garage covered in peeling paint and rust, and you’re just not sure where to start….give us a call because we can provide a full restoration service at a surprisingly affordable price.
We’ll thoroughly pressure test your old radiators, flush them, carefully blast them to rid them of old paint and rust using soft copper slag before priming and repainting them in the colour of your choice. Our contact details are listed on our website. We’re based just outside of Bath and are happy to arrange collection and delivery for which there is a small additional charge.
