PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

You may be capable of doing some of the work in restoring a blocked up fireplace if you have the ability to do so, but there is always a problem in finding structural and safety problems which need to be resolved professionally. It might be your good fortune when you remove the covering from a disused fireplace to discover a hidden gem that needs nothing more than a good clear out and a check from a chimney sweep to get a fire roaring once again. Much more likely you'll come across a blocked flue and old brickwork that requires structural modifications.

Due to the serious fire risk and health issues that can be caused by a poorly fitted or renovated fireplace, it is advisable to draw on the knowledge and experience of a certified fireplace fitter and builder in Bewdley. There always has to be enough airflow into a room where a fireplace is installed to guarantee sufficient levels of oxygen for the fire to burn properly. Inadequate oxygen means that the fire will not burn properly, and a build up of carbon monoxide fumes could occur, which can lead to injury or death.

To overcome this problem a fireplace specialist in Bewdley will consider the circumstances and install vents in the room, or under the flooring, to ensure a satisfactory air flow for the fire to combust safely and efficiently. They may also have to fit vents in unused chimney flues which sometimes trap moist air and cause staining and damp spots on your chimney breast.

BEFORE WORK BEGINS

A huge amount of muck and soot can be released from a blocked up chimney when opening it up for renovation. It is wise to remove any furniture, carpets and rugs from a room where you are planning to uncover an old fireplace, to prevent them from being damaged by dirt, dust and soot that will be whipped up during the fireplace installation and chimney cleaning works. If you're carrying out a full renovation of a room or property, the fireplace ought to be opened up and worked on before any decoration or plastering works are dealt with. By opening up a fireplace first you will avoid any soot from the chimney causing damage to other stages of your project, such as wallpapered walls or fresh plasterwork.

CONSTRUCTION & STRUCTURAL WORK
