Leading Melbourne-based lacework manufacturer Chatterton Lacework explains how verandas on heritage properties can be easily restored using the different kinds of lacework available on the market today.

Lacework on heritage verandas can be restored using iron lacework, aluminium lacework and lace balustrade products. Original heritage cast iron lacework can be reproduced in both small and large quantities to suit specific requirements. The new castings in aluminium or iron will look almost identical to the original castings. Lace balustrade panels can also be reproduced in a similar way to aluminium lacework or cast iron lacework.

Old cast iron products will appear extremely worn out after being on the heritage property for over one hundred years. Replacing the iron lacework with aluminium lacework or the balustrade with decorative aluminium lace panels will enhance any heritage property and restore its original charm.
