Resetting Fireplace Mantel & Hearth
My client requested for me to fit and set the cast iron fireplace, decorative mantel and cement in the hearth.
Restore Cement Hearth
A hearth underneath tiles in a fireplace collapsed when stood on. Luckily my client was not injured, however, many tiles required removal and the hearth required relaying underneath the house.
The next step will be to complete match the tiles & tiling the area.
The broken tiles lead straight into a void due to the old cement construction giving way.
Restoring Fireplace with New Tiles and a Modern Gas Fireplace
The fireplace in an old Victorian home required new tiles (as the old ones were totally stripped out by the previous tenants) and a new backing plate to blend in with more modern settings.
This worked really- well as the tiles and fireplace add a slightly off-beat modern touch to a lovely warm interior.

Replacing Tiles in a Fireplace
Old tiles required removal as they were cracked and broken (as seen below left hand side photo).
The hearth was levelled out, cemented and tiles were laid.
Install Deco-Style Fireplace with Bookcase
Client's decided to have a bookcase fitted into an existing fireplace in their daughter's room.
They had found this nice little deco- fireplace in the area and now wanted to complement the bookshelf with the installation of the fireplace.
The fireplace was fitted securely to the wall (including levelled correctly). The wall was plastered where necessary.
The clients wanted to paint the fireplace and surrounds themselves.
