Cast iron radiators are a part of the architectural history of NYC.
We want to ensure they’re a part of its future, too.
Our honed refurbishment process brings even the most tired-looking cast iron radiator up to date.
Back to bare iron
We start by removing the old paint. Our three shot blasting machines allow us to tackle all sizes and shapes. Our experienced craftsmen know which grade of blasting media to use, from a gentle rounded bead to aggressive chilled iron. We remove the surface coatings while preserving the original cast iron patina.
A careful inspection
At this point we’re able to give the radiator a careful visual inspection. If there’s likely to be an issue, we’ll bring it to your attention before proceeding. We’ll only ever bill for the work we actually do.
Updating for today’s technology
If needed we’ll replace the existing bushings, including adding a vacuum breaker on steam radiators to allow for thermostatic control.
Old hot-water systems had large pipes because they relied on gravity and buoyancy for distribution of the hot water through the network of radiators. Thanks to the pumps inside modern boilers, much smaller ½” piping is usually all that’s required with domestic hydronic radiators.
We usually fit new bushings to accommodate modern valves, but we’ll always check before doing so.
A Professional Finish
We paint, powder coat and lacquer cast iron radiators using hard-wearing finishes that cure to a scratch- and heat-resistant finish. We can match most color schemes, get in touch to find out more.
Signed, sealed, delivered
Once complete, we carefully package the radiator ready for the return journey. Our honed process ensures you’ll receive exactly what you’ve asked for with no unwanted surprises.
And guaranteed for ten years
The work we do – the finish, and new seals and components – is all covered by our 10-year Ironshield Warranty. Read our plain English refurbishment terms & conditions here.
