A simple renovation of a pre-existing fireplace can generally be achieved by a competent DIYer, but if any building work is required there is the possibility of encountering structural problems that need to be handled by a professional. You could be fortunate when uncovering your old fireplace and discover that you need little more than a decent chimney sweep and a quick clean up of the hearth in order to get a fire roaring. What's more common however is a swathe of crumbling brickwork covering a stopped up flue, and needs some degree of structural modification before it can be safely used.

An incorrectly installed fireplace can cause severe fire risk and respiratory health problems and should only be fitted by a specialist fireplace installer in Atherstone with the experience and knowledge to install it effectively. For a fire to burn satisfactorily in a room where a fireplace is fitted, there should be ample airflow to ensure sufficient amounts of oxygen. A fire will not burn well in a room where there's not enough oxygen, and death could occur if there's a build-up of carbon monoxide gas.

To overcome this issue a professional fireplace installation team will consider the circumstances and fit vents around the room, or beneath the floor, to guarantee an adequate airflow for the fire to combust properly and safely. They might also have to fit air vents into unused chimney flues which can sometimes trap moist air and lead to damp spots and staining to your chimney breast.
