There are some vital considerations you must think of before you commence any work, in order to create an efficient, safe and attractive fireplace in your home. All work carried out must comply with Part J of the Building Regulations, which addresses the construction and installation of hearths, flue linings, fireplaces and chimney breasts of any combustible appliance. If you live in a listed building or are in a designated conservation area you must check with local council if planning permission is required for installing a fireplace in your house.

A straightforward remodel of a current fireplace can probably be achieved by a competent DIYer, but if any construction work is required there's a possibility of encountering structural problems which need to be addressed professionally. You could be fortunate when exposing your old fireplace and find out you need nothing more than a thorough clean up of the hearth and a sweep of the chimney in order to get a fire roaring once more. What you'll likely discover is a pile of old, crumbling bricks that conceals issues such as a blocked chimney or a lintel that requires replacement.

If a fireplace is installed in your house in Aldershot and it isn't put in correctly, there is not only a severe fire risk, but also of respiratory problems. So, using a professional fireplace fitter is highly recommended in most cases. There always has to be a decent air flow into a room where there's a fireplace to ensure sufficient quantities of oxygen allow the fire to burn safely. If the airflow is not good enough then it's possible that a fire will burn inefficiently and cause carbon monoxide to build up, which can be deadly.

To successfully get over any airflow problems, vents might be installed around the room during a fireplace installation, to ensure suitable levels of oxygen are able to reach the fire. They may also have to install vents in unused chimney flues which can sometimes trap moist air and cause staining and damp spots on your chimney breast.
