Aga range cooker surrounds tiling replacement solution...

Love the piano black surround to this Aga range cooker I re-enamelled - goes great with the black hob. Thank you John from Cornwall for the comments below...

"Matthew from Blake and bull, rectified and replaced the top part of our Aga range cooker oven during May of this year, he did a fabulous job, quick, was totally efficient, also cleaned up after him, no mess left.

Unfortunately we had inherited with the AGA range cooker a aluminium handmade surround that was awful and looked out of place, so during Mats visit it was removed and disposed off, leaving a mess around the newly refurbished top.

We then spent time with a local kitchen fitter to establish the best solution to rectify, this was then agreed to install tempered black glass surround. See photos before and after."
