We specialize in fully restored vintage stoves. Meaning that the original functions and cosmetics are as like original, including clocks and timers. We do however offer different levels of restoration. We restore all vintage stoves from frame-up. Each stove is disassembled, and inspected for repair or replacement. The frames and structural hidden components are treated with a powder-coated process, or high-heat enamel painting process. Then the various parts are sent out for repair; porcelain goes to a porcelain contractor, chrome to the chrome contractor. All of our gas thermostats and safeties are factory rebuilt new and guaranteed. We install new insulation (ceramic, not fiberglass, 3 times the R-value), new wiring, new factory springs, and new gas tubing, right down to the nuts and bolts. The quality of my craftsmanship is the very best available. There are very few top-notch restorers that can restore these great 50’s vintage appliances in pristine proper function and cosmetic condition. Each vintage stove is restored to function as it originally was, as well as its cosmetic original appeal. The end results speak for it, as you will be able to see for yourself by enlarging each picture on our Web site.
