Decorative half round grape finial restoration
This job was a special restoration project for a customer that had an unusual but decorative half round grape finial

The roof finial had broken and the customer had invested a bit time searching around for a similar roof finial to their design but to no avail. After contacting us to query what we have in our range it quickly became apparent that we too didn't have a similar design to their original:

We prepared a quote for the customer for making some replicas. The customer was able to supply one complete finial to be repaired and from which a mould could be taken. The workshop carried out some minor repairs to the piece including repair of hairline cracks and giving the piece an acid bath to remove algae and moss

When the roof finial was ready for mould making the finial was moulded and encased in fibreglass. An outer fibreglass shell with wood and release bolts was also added to give its strength and finish off the mould
