You may be capable of doing some of the work in remodeling a pre-existing fireplace if you've got the skills needed, however safety and structural problems are often found which need to be resolved professionally. It might be your good fortune when you remove the boarding surrounding a disused fireplace to find a hidden treasure which requires nothing more than a quick clean up and a visit from a chimney sweep to get a roaring fire going once again.

To prevent condensed air from becoming trapped in blocked off or unused chimney flues and creating staining and damp spots, vents may need to be installed by the fireplace installation team to improve the airflow.
