American LaFrance Radiator
We are often asked by prospective customers to “just re-core my radiator.” We do not just recore a radiator, rod out cores or hot tank a radiator in caustic chemicals. These may be time saving techniques but they can damage, weaken or shorten the life of your radiator. Furthermore, these terms suggest quick and easy fixes to fundamental problems, weak brittle metal, clogged tubes or compromised joints or seams. Shortcuts invite problems and we don't want problems. Instead we offer a thorough restoration service. Read more about the process
