As a restoration and repair expert, I have 30 years experience working in the metalwork and restoration business. I have restored a large number of fireplaces and other cast iron and metal pieces, for both individual customers and companies alike.

I have worked with SoloPark PLC (Cambridge), one of the largest reclaimed materials companies in the East of England. I was asked to restore anything from grates to spiral staircases - even a large bronze horse! Mostly though I refurbished fireplaces, including all of the stock in their showroom.

I undertook the restoration of a Victorian conservatory which the owner found under straw in an old barn, with a number of damaged parts. After the restoration it was exhibited at the Idea Home Exhibition as a show piece.

I also appeared on the BBC television program "Home front", working on the repair of an oven door and frame.

These are of course just a small selection of the interesting and challenging projects I have worked on over the years, please contact me to discuss your own restoration project in more detail.
