DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

If you're a keen and competent DIYer it may be possible to renovate a bricked-up or blocked fireplace, however the likelihood of experiencing structural issues in many cases is high. It may be that so as to get a fire roaring in your fireplace once again you need little more than a quick clean up of the hearth and a visit from a chimney sweep. What is more typical however is an area of crumbling, old brickwork that conceals a blocked flue, and also requires some form of structural modification before it can be safely used.

Hiring a professional fireplace fitter in Blackheath is normally recommended, since a poorly fitted fireplace can can cause a fire risk and respiratory health conditions. So that a fire can burn correctly in a room where a fireplace is fitted, there must be ample airflow to guarantee an adequate amount of oxygen. A deficiency of oxygen means the fire will not burn properly, and carbon monoxide fumes could accumulate, which can cause breathing problems or even death.

To effectively get around any airflow problems, vents may need to be fitted in the room as part of a fireplace installation, to guarantee suitable levels of oxygen are able to reach the fire. They might have to install vents into unused chimney flues which can trap condensing air and cause damp spots and staining to your chimney breast.

BEFORE WORK BEGINS

It is astonishing just how much dirt and soot can build up inside an old chimney and you won't know what's there until you proceed to open it up. Even with coverings for your furniture, the risk of impairment from soot and dirt is still possible and it's advisable to remove your furniture and carpets before any fireplace restoration work and chimney cleaning commences. If you're engaging in a full restoration of a room or property, the fireplace should be opened up before any plastering or decorating is dealt with. By opening a fireplace first you'll prevent any soot from the chimney causing damage to other phases of your project, such as fresh plasterwork or paint on walls.

CONSTRUCTION & STRUCTURAL WORK

With your fireplace open, it's time to see what is in a fit state to be restored and give the hearth and chimney a comprehensive cleaning. The first item on your to-do list should be to contact a professional chimney sweep. A chimney sweep will first clean the flue and whilst doing this will check the condition of the chimney and provide advice on whether a new flue liner is necessary.
