Chimney breasts are notorious for the volume of grime and soot that can accumulate within them, thus when you set out to open up a disused fireplace you can assume that it will be an extremely messy operation. So that the carpets, furniture and rugs in an area do not get affected by the muck and soot that is emitted during work by a fireplace installer, it's good practice to have them removed beforehand. If you're fortunate enough to be working on a complete renovation project then it should be one of the initial jobs to focus on before you re-plaster or decorate the walls. This helps to prevent any staining damage to any refurbished work you have already finished.

After a chimney sweep's examination it may be required to install a new liner and/or strengthen the chimney breast in accordance with Part J of the Building Regulations. This kind of work must be done by a skilled craftsman who is familiar with the relevant Building Regs and decent working practices.

In an older building a steel or concrete lintel might be needed to adapt the size of the opening, if it's found that the exposed fireplace is too big for your planned design. As soon as you have supported your fireplace with a lintel it is now possible to upgrade or repair the hearth. In days past the hearth was sunken into a hole in the floor, however current Building Regulations for the UK demand that it's raised at least 12.5mm above normal floor level. You will find that there is an array of off-the-shelf hearths in granite, marble or slate, but if your fireplace is not of a standard size you may have to go for a made to measure hearth, which you should ask your Balderton fireplace builder about.
