Metalwork care and gilding
Metalwork care
Barwin are established specialists in restoration, conservation, care and repair of metalwork. We maintain over 8 miles of railings, dozens of large ornamental gates and hundreds of bins and benches with the Royal parks for the past 19 years. We repair and restore both cast iron and wrought iron, traditionally-crafted railings and gates. Quality of such work demands highest grade materials, expert technical skills and knowledge of the original techniques.


We use either gold or silver leaf on a surface to both restore and compliment an already decorated surface or to enhance a plain surface. It is often used on friezes, gates and railings in period decoration. Over the years we have gilded many substrates, including metalwork, plasterwork, stonework and elements of building facades.
