Radiator Refurbishment

Simple but Specialist

Antique radiators can be fully reconditioned to run happily with modern systems. Cast iron radiators last hundreds of years. We always prefer to restore where possible and only replace where necessary.

Restoring radiators is a passion for us.

We can add modern energy-saving controls for improved comfort and there is usually no need for new pipework, making reinstallation uncomplicated. On top of this, our two-person collection and redelivery service in the tri-state area makes it all trouble-free. Our customer support team will consult and guide you throughout the process.

Preserve A Piece Of History

By choosing to refurbish, you are maintaining a really impressive piece of engineering. The evolution of central heating and radiators weaves together the social and industrial histories of Britain, Europe and America. Our craftsmen will allow you to cherish your own little piece of this story.

Environmental Benefits

Peer-reviewed work we have done with Salford university shows that a refurbished cast iron radiator has a carbon footprint 95% lower than that of a new one.

Iron is one of the world’s most recycled metals. Cast iron radiators are made from scrap; and at the end of their very long lives will themselves be re-melted once again to form something new. This means that the antique metal you are refurbishing could have an even longer history than you think.

In Expert Hands

With our roots in architectural salvage, our experience in reconditioning original radiators goes way back – it’s where Castrads started.

Our founder, Chris Baylis, played a role in the revival of reclaimed cast iron radiators in the late nineties. By the early noughties, interest was increasing from abroad. This has come full circle for us, as we have now expanded our refurbishment service to the US and Europe.
