Fireplace restoration & installation services

Ironwright, Restorers of cast-iron fireplaces

Ironwright, restorers of cast-iron fireplaces, was established in 1994 and is currently based in Essex (previously Battersea, South London). We cover the whole of London and South East but we are open to projects nationwide so please get in contact to discuss.

As a cast-iron fireplace restoration company most of our work is with the fireplace trade however we welcome enquiries from private customers. If you require a fireplace restoration quote, a picture sent to is the quickest way to receive one.

We specialise in restoring cast-iron fireplaces using traditional and modern methods to a range of different finishes including to a polished, highlighted, matt black and also traditional graphite finish. Most fireplaces, especially surrounds or registers have been painted with many layers of paint. At our workshop we have developed a grit blasting process which will remove the old paint safely and without damaging the original cast-iron fireplace. We will then restore and complete the fireplace to the finish of your choice. We can repair or weld broken parts and we can supply replacement front bars and hoods and almost any accessories, we also make bespoke items including shelves to suit individual surrounds and registers.

We also have a large collection of original cast iron fireplaces, combination, surround, baskets and many other fireplace items in stock. We keep a majority of these un restored so they can be restored to you preference. We have pictures of previous items we have restored to give you an idea of what can be achieved to suit you taste.

Although we mainly work for the fireplace trade we will gladly undertake private restoration work.

What our customers say

  • Made to measure fire grate with ashpan and cover, looks absolutely superb. I wish I had used Zak for my other fireplaces which I painstakingly restored, it would have saved bags of time and effort as well as looking much better!

  • Zak has restored two fireplaces for me. It was like a godsend finding him as I searched for ages to find someone who could do the repairs who was based near to me in North London. He is based at Unit1 Daw Street Farm, CM7 4LQ. As my family were installing the fireplace ourselves I had a lot of questions about how to do it – Zak answered all of them, which he really didn’t have to do. He was very flexible about when I could drop off and collect my fireplaces. The restorations he has done for me are beautiful. And on top of all that, his prices are so fair. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for a second!

  • I have just received my fireplaces back from Ironwright and they have done a phenomenal job. The fireplaces were in need of repair and restoration and on both fronts Zak has done a fantastic job. Ironwright also remodelled some of the fireplaces, so that they now are standalone decorative features in rooms that do not have chimney breasts, so I have been able to utilise and upcycle all of the old fireplaces in my house. Very happy, so I would highly recommend using Ironwright.
