As a restoration and repair expert, I have had a great deal of experience. For over 20 years I have restored a large number of fireplaces and parts, for both companies and individuals alike.
I have worked with such companies as Solopark plc (Cambridge), one of the largest reclaim material companies in the East of England. Whilst working for this prestigious company, I was asked to restore anything from grates, to spiral staircases - even a bronze horse with a nasty crack in it! Mostly though, I refurbished fireplaces, including all of the stock in their showroom.
I have also appeared on the BBC Two television programme, "Home Front", working behind the scenes, repairing an oven door and frame. The show's former expert was Neville Griffiths, an architectural salvage guru and the owner of Rococo Architectual Antiques & Interiors(Northampton), who I have also worked for.
I undertook the restoration of a Victorian conservatory, which the owner found in pieces under straw, in an old barn - with a number of damaged parts. After restoration, it was finally exhibited at the Ideal Home Exhibition, as a show piece.
Of course, this is just a selection of interesting and challenging items I have worked on in the last 20 years.
Please feel free to contact me personally. I will be happy to talk to you in more detail about the projects I have worked on and how I could help you.
