Fireplace Fitter Hoyland South Yorkshire (S74): Putting in a brand new fireplace or re-opening an old disused fireplace in your Hoyland property is a wonderful way to add charm and a homely feel to any room. Adding a wood burning stove or open fire for those cold winters' evenings can even prove less expensive than certain central heating systems, providing that you've got a good source of fuel. If used in combination with a back boiler it can supply you with a plentiful supply of hot water at the same time.
Before you start prising away at a blocked up chimney there are some things you will need to think about to make certain you can safely install your new fireplace. Any combustible appliance installed within residential homes in Hoyland must conform to Part J of the UK's buildings regs, and this applies to fireplaces, hearths, flue linings and chimney breasts. If you own a listed building you will also have to find out if planning permission is necessary from the local council before any work begins.
PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?
If you're a keen and competent DIY'er it is quite possible to renovate an existing blocked up fireplace, however the chances of running into structural issues in the majority of cases is unfortunately high. You might be fortunate when you reveal the old fireplace and find you need nothing more than a decent chimney sweep and a quick clean up of the hearth to get your fire roaring once more. What is more typical however is a patch of crumbling, old brickwork that conceals a stopped up flue, and also requires some form of structural modification before it can be used safely.
If a fireplace is installed improperly there's not only a risk of fire to your home, but there can also be associated respiratory health hazards, which is why it is advisable to employ a competent Hoyland installation team for a fireplace. A major part of the Building Regulations (Part J) for fireplaces is that sufficient oxygen is available for the fire to burn properly and efficiently. Toxic carbon monoxide fumes can soon build up from a fire burning inefficiently in an inadequately ventilated room.
To get past this problem a professional fireplace installation team will assess the situation and fit vents in the room, or under the floor, to ensure a sufficient amount of air flow for the fire to burn effectively and safely. To avoid condensed air from becoming trapped in blocked off or unused chimney flues and producing staining and damp spots, vents may have to be fitted by the fireplace installation team to enhance the airflow.
BEFORE WORK STARTS
Having a fireplace opened up can create large amounts of grime and soot. Even with dust sheets for your furniture, the risk of impairment from muck and soot is still possible and it's advisable to remove your belongings and any woven materials before any fireplace restoration work and chimney cleaning begins. If you are fortunate enough to be carrying out a complete renovation then it ought to be one of the very first jobs to focus on before you re-plaster or decorate the walls. By opening a fireplace first you'll prevent any chimney soot causing staining damage to other stages of your renovation project, such as fresh plaster or paint on walls.
CONSTRUCTION AND STRUCTURAL WORK
With the fireplace opened up, it is time to see what can be renovated or replaced and give the hearth and chimney an intensive cleaning. Bringing in a chimney sweep to de-soot your chimney is one of the first things on your to-do-list. A chimney sweep will first clean the flue and whilst doing this will check the structural condition of the chimney and provide you with guidance on whether a new flue liner is necessary.
If you need to strengthen the chimney or install a flue lining all current Building Regulations must be adhered to. This sort of work must be tackled by a qualified person who is familiar with the current building regulations and good working practices.
In buildings that are older you might find the original fireplace is too wide for your needs, in which case a concrete supporting lintel will be required to modify the opening. When your new concrete lintel is in place and secure you may now press on with the repair, installation and upgrade of the fireplace hearth. If the existing hearth is set into the floor you'll need to raise it to observe the latest regulations. If your fireplace is not a standard size you might have to purchase a tailor-made hearth, but there are also a wide range of "off-the-shelf" hearths in marble, concrete or slate.
STYLES AND DESIGNS OF FIREPLACE
A quick browse online or a trip to a fireplace showroom will show the choices available for the different designs and styles of fireplaces. It is quite possible that owing to your existing flue, chimney and airflow to the room, that certain fireplace designs may not be suitable, therefore it pays to follow the advice of your fireplace installer with respect to this.
You home's age, and the theme that you're trying to develop for your room, will all help you to determine the design and type of fireplace which is best for you. As an example, an attractive inglenook fireplace can be a wonderful backdrop to an old-fashioned cast iron wood-burner stove, highlighting its charm and reflecting heat back into the room.
Even if you don't have a pre-existing chimney breast in your Hoyland home, it's still possible to put in a wood burning or multi fuel stove. A pre-existing chimney is not required since a stainless steel flue is taken straight from the rear or top of the stove and channeled through an outside wall.
