PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

If you are an enthusiastic and competent DIYer it is quite possible to refurbish an existing blocked or bricked-up fireplace, however the chances of experiencing structural issues in most cases is high. If you are fortunate when you open up a boarded fireplace you might find a decent chimney breast, hearth and lintel that involves nothing other than the services and advice of a chimney sweep to get it ready for use. However, what you'll most likely discover is a wall of old bricks that hides problems such as a blocked chimney or a lintel that requires replacement.

An incorrectly fitted fireplace can cause significant respiratory health problems and fire risk and should only be put in by a professional fireplace installer in Beccles with the knowledge and experience to do the job safely. Making sure that enough oxygen is available for the fire to burn properly and efficiently is a key aspect of Part J of the Building Regulations for fireplaces. An accumulation of deadly carbon monoxide fumes can occur in an area where there's not enough airflow, and even death is possible when a fire is burning inefficiently.

To get past this concern a professional Beccles fireplace fitter will analyse the circumstances and install vents around the room, or underneath the floor, to guarantee a sufficient amount of air flow for the fire to combust properly and safely. To avoid condensed air from becoming trapped in blocked off or unused chimney flues and producing damp spots and staining, vents may have to be fitted by the fireplace installation team to improve the airflow.

BEFORE WORK BEGINS

Opening up an old fireplace can cause large amounts of dust and soot to enter your room. It is advisable to remove any furniture, carpets and rugs from an area where you are going to open up an old fireplace, to avoid them being affected by dust, soot and muck that may be whipped up during the fireplace installation works. If you are conducting a complete restoration of a room or house, the fireplace should be opened up and worked on before any decoration or plastering works are dealt with. This will help to avoid any impairment by soot and dirt to any completed work.

CONSTRUCTION & STRUCTURAL WORK

With the fireplace opened up, it is time to see what needs to be renovated or replaced and give the chimney and hearth a good clean. You should now speak to your chimney sweep, if you haven't already done this, to come and clean the old fireplace and chimney. They'll not only make certain your chimney and flue are clean, but they can also look at the condition of the chimney and flue liner and provide advice about whether you need to upgrade any part of the flue and chimney.
