Fireplace Fitter Spalding Lincolnshire (PE11): A good way to add a bit of charm to any Spalding property is by installing a brand new fireplace, or renovating an existing one. The addition of a multi-fuel stove or open fire for those frosty winters' evenings can even prove to be less expensive than some central heating systems, so long as you have a ready source of wood. If used in combination with a back boiler it can provide you with plenty of hot water at the same time.
Before you begin prising away at a bricked-up chimney there are some things you'll need to think about to ensure you can install your new fireplace in a safe and efficient way. All work carried out must observe Part J of the Building Regulations, which addresses the installation and construction of hearths, chimney breasts, flue linings and fireplaces of any combustible appliance. If you live in a designated conservation area or a listed building you must check with local authorities if planning permission is required for a fireplace installation in your house.
PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?
You might be able to do some of the remodeling work on an existing fireplace if you've got the ability to do so, but structural and safety problems are often discovered which need to be resolved by a specialist. You could be lucky when you reveal the old fireplace and discover that you need nothing more than a decent clean up of the hearth and a quick chimney sweep to get a fire roaring once more. More likely you'll come across a blocked flue and old brickwork that needs structural modifications.
Due to the acute fire risk and health problems that can be caused by an improperly installed or renovated fireplace, it is advisable to draw on the experience and knowledge of a competent fireplace fitter in Spalding. A major part of the Building Regulations (Part J) for fireplaces is that sufficient oxygen is available for a fire to burn properly and efficiently. If the airflow is not sufficient then it is quite possible that a fire will burn inefficiently and cause carbon monoxide to build up, which can be lethal.
To overcome this problem a professional Spalding fireplace fitter will consider the situation and install vents in the room, or underneath the floors, to guarantee a sufficient amount of air flow for the fire to burn effectively and safely. Blocked off and unused chimney flues may also need to have air vents fitted since they can often trap moist air within them causing damp to develop inside the chimney breast.
BEFORE WORK BEGINS
A substantial amount of soot and other grime can be discharged from an old chimney when reopening it for restoration. It's advisable to remove any furniture, rugs and carpets from a room where you are going to uncover an old fireplace, to avoid them from being damaged by dirt, soot and dust that may be disturbed during the fireplace installation and chimney cleaning work. If your fireplace is being installed as part of an overall renovation project then it ought to be one of the first things to be completed after you've brought the room back to bare walls and floors. By opening up a fireplace first you'll avoid any chimney soot causing staining damage to other parts of your renovation project, such as fresh plaster or wallpapered walls.
STRUCTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION WORK
With the fireplace opened up, it's time to see what needs to be renovated or replaced and to give the hearth and chimney an intensive cleaning. The very first item on your checklist should be to contact a professional chimney sweep. A chimney sweep will first of all clean the flue and whilst doing this can inspect the condition of the chimney and provide guidance on whether a new flue liner is necessary.
After a chimney sweeps assessment it may be required to install a new liner and/or strengthen the chimney breast as set out in Part J of the UK Building Regulations. These are projects that require a capable tradesman with a good understanding of the relevant building regs and quality construction skills.
If you need to change the width of opening of your original fireplace to a more suitable size for your design, a concrete supporting lintel will have to be put in. When you have successfully supported the fireplace with your lintel it is now necessary to repair or update the hearth. If the current hearth is set into the floor you will need to raise it to conform to the latest regulations. You can get custom-made solutions to fit any design and size of fireplace, or you can choose from a range of common size and shape hearths to match your decor.
STYLES OF FIREPLACE
If you check out a fireplace showroom you'll find that you have lots of choice with the range of different choices open to you. It's possible that owing to your existing chimney, flue and airflow to the room, that certain fireplaces may not be appropriate, therefore it's advisable to follow the advice of your fireplace installer with respect to this.
You home's age, and the theme that you are trying to establish for your room, should all help you to decide upon the type and design of fireplace that's best for you. If you've got an attractive inglenook fireplace, a cast iron wood burner can look striking in this surrounding, and has the added benefit of effectively reflecting heat back into the room from the stone or brick walls surrounding the stove.
Even if your Spalding property doesn't have a chimney you've still got the option of a fireplace feature through the installation of a multi-fuel stove or a wood burner. An existing chimney isn't needed since the flue is fitted to the top or rear of the stove and channeled through an exterior wall.
