Ecorad, a leader in the field of radiator restoration, offers a meticulous process that ensures your heating artefacts not only meet but exceed contemporary performance standards. Here’s a step-by-step look at how to rejuvenate your cherished vintage radiators with Ecorad.

Step 1: Consultation and Project Initiation

The first step towards revitalizing your cast iron radiators begins with a visit to Project Evaluation Form . Here, you are guided through a simple form that helps you request a personal consultation. In fact, Ecorad’s project managers are keen on understanding your vision, examining the scope of your restoration needs, and laying out the groundwork for what comes next.

Step 2: Tailored Recommendations and Proposal

After your initial consultation, Ecorad’s experts will offer personalized recommendations, treating each radiator restoration and electric conversion project as unique. Your specific needs will guide our proposals, including discussions about timeline, budget, and any special requests. On average, restoration, including electric conversion, costs $1000 per radiator, but Ecorad will provide a detailed quote to meet your specific requirements. The best part? This consultation is completely free, ensuring you make well-informed decisions with no strings attached.

Step 3: Starting the Journey

To proceed with Ecorad and secure your position in our project queue, a deposit is required. Homeowners, typically with assistance from their plumber, need to flush the heating system and disconnect the radiators before we can arrange pickup. Following this, your dedicated project manager will initiate the restoration process. This marks the beginning of a transformative journey for your radiators, where each step is carefully planned and clearly communicated.

Step 4: The Restoration Workshop

Ecorad’s skilled craftsmen take over from here, transporting your radiators to their specialized workshop. Whether it’s stripping away decades of paint, repairing any damage, or upgrading with electric conversion for increased efficiency, their attention to detail is unmatched. This stage is where the magic happens, blending traditional techniques with modern innovations to breathe new life into your radiators.

Step 5: Preparing for Reinstallation

While your radiators undergo their transformation, it’s an opportune time for you to prepare your space. This might involve minor renovations or simply planning the layout to welcome back your restored radiators. You’ll also want to coordinate timing with your plumber, or electrician in the case of an electric conversion upgrade, to ensure a smooth reinstallation process.

Step 6: Welcome Back Warmth

Once restored to their former glory (and beyond), your radiators are carefully shipped back to you. Reinstallation by professional tradespeople ensures that your pieces are not just aesthetically pleasing but are fully functional and integrated into your home’s heating system with the latest in energy efficiency and safety standards.

Step 7: The Final Touches

With the restoration complete, it’s time to enjoy the warmth and beauty of your cast iron radiators. Beyond just heating your space, these pieces become a testament to your commitment to sustainability, energy efficiency, and the preservation of history. Electric conversion radiators require no maintenance, aside from the occasional external dusting, extending their lifespan for generations and proving that some things indeed get better with age.
