Fireplace Fitter Glossop Derbyshire (SK13): A splendid way to add charm to any Glossop property is by the installation of a brand new fireplace, or the renovation of an existing one. Cold winters' evenings can become enjoyable as you sit back in front of your fireplace listening to the crackling of a burning fire, and if your fire is used in combination with a back boiler you can also benefit from plentiful hot water as well.
There are a few vital considerations you must think of before you commence any work, in order to establish an efficient, attractive and safe fireplace in your property. All work carried out must adhere to Part J of the Building Regulations, which covers the installation and construction of hearths, chimney breasts, flue linings and fireplaces of any combustible appliance. If your property is a listed building you will also have to find out if planning permission is necessary from the local authorities before any work commences.
PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?
If you're an enthusiastic and competent do-it-yourselfer it may be possible to renovate an existing bricked-up or blocked fireplace, however the probability of encountering structural problems in the majority of cases is high. If you are fortunate when you expose a stopped up fireplace you may find a decent chimney breast, hearth and lintel that involves nothing other than the advice and services of a chimney sweep to get it ready for use. Much more likely you will discover a stopped up flue and crumbling brickwork that requires structural reinforcement.
If a fireplace is installed incorrectly there's not only a fire risk to your property, but there can also be associated health hazards, which is why it is advisable to bring in a competent Glossop installation team for fireplaces. A key part of Part J of the Building Regulations for fireplaces is that enough oxygen is available for a fire to burn efficiently and properly. If there is not enough airflow then it is possible that a fire will not burn efficiently and cause a build-up of carbon monoxide, which can be deadly.
To safely get over any airflow issues, vents might be installed in the room as part of a fireplace installation, to ensure suitable oxygen levels reach the fire. Unused and blocked up chimney flues may also need to have air vents fitted as they can trap moist air inside them and cause damp to occur inside the chimney breast.
BEFORE WORK STARTS
It is surprising how much soot and dirt can build up inside an old chimney and fireplace and you will not know exactly what's there until you proceed to open it up. Even with coverings for your home furnishings, the chance of damage from soot and grime is still possible and it's advisable to remove your furniture, rugs and carpets before any fireplace restoration work and chimney cleaning commences. If you're fortunate enough to be carrying out a complete restoration project then it should be one of the very first tasks to work on before re-plastering and decorating the walls. This prevents any staining damage to any restored work you might have already completed.
CONSTRUCTION & STRUCTURAL WORK
With your fireplace now open, it is time to see what needs to be restored and give the hearth and chimney a thorough cleaning. Contacting a chimney sweep to clean your chimney will be one of the very first things on your agenda. They'll not only make certain that your chimney and flue are nice and clean, but they can also take a look at the state of the chimney and flue liner and offer advice if you need to upgrade any part of the chimney and flue.
Following a chimney sweep examination it may be necessary to strengthen the chimney breast or/and install a new flue liner as demanded by Part J of the Building Regulations. A competent fireplace installer and builder in Glossop will be needed to complete this task, and should have the knowledge and skills in construction to follow all building regulations.
If you need to adjust the size of opening of your original fireplace to something smaller and more suitable for your new design, a supporting concrete lintel should be installed. Once this has been completed the next phase of your fireplace installation in Glossop will be to modernise the hearth. In the old days the hearth was set into a void in the floor, but the latest building regulations require it to be raised above floor level. You can get custom-made options to fit any size and design of fireplace, or you can pick from a variety of common size and shape hearths to match your decor.
DESIGNS OF FIREPLACE
Choosing your perfect fireplace can be difficult when faced with the many styles available from an online store or fireplace showroom. The recommendations and advice from your sales and installation team, which will hinge on your particular requirements, will enable you to pick a fireplace that's both appropriate for your existing chimney and flue, as well as for your home's decor.
Whether you go for a multi-fuel stove, an open fireplace or a wood burner will be determined by the all round style that you're trying to create, your current decor and maybe, your home's age. If you've got an inglenook fireplace, a wood burning stove can look magnificent in this surrounding, and has the added benefit of reflecting the heat into the room from the stone or brick walls surrounding the stove.
If your Glossop property doesn't have a chimney breast you still have options for a fireplace feature by installing a wood burning or multi fuel stove. This style of fireplace can be fitted with a stainless steel flue that's taken through an external wall and doesn't require a chimney, to be installed and work safely.
