You might be capable of doing some of the remodeling work to a bricked-up fireplace if you have the ability to do so, but there is always a problem in finding structural and safety issues which need to be resolved by a professional tradesman. It might be the case that when you pull back the covering from a disused fireplace to discover a hidden gem which requires little more than a good clear out and a check from a chimney sweep to get a roaring fire going. However, what you'll most likely discover is an area of crumbling bricks that conceals issues such as a blocked chimney or a lintel that needs replacing.

Employing a professional fireplace fitter in Biddulph is normally advised, since a fireplace which is improperly installed can cause respiratory health issues and a severe fire risk. A key part of Part J of the Building Regulations for fireplaces is that sufficient oxygen is available for the fire to burn efficiently and safely. Carbon monoxide gas (which is lethal) can build-up in an inadequately ventilated area where a fire that is burning inefficiently is installed.

To overcome this concern a professional fireplace installation team will assess the circumstances and fit vents in the room, or under the flooring, to guarantee a sufficient amount of air flow for the fire to burn safely and effectively. Blocked off and unused chimney flues might also need to have air vents fitted as they can trap moist air inside them and cause damp to develop inside the chimney breast.
