DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

If you're a competent and enthusiastic do-it-yourselfer it is possible to renovate an existing blocked up fireplace, but the likelihood of encountering structural issues in the majority of cases is unfortunately high. If you are fortunate when you open up a blocked up fireplace you may find a decent chimney breast, lintel and hearth that needs nothing other than the advice and services of a chimney sweep to get it ready for use. More likely you will discover crumbling brickwork that requires structural reinforcement and a blocked flue.

If fireplaces are installed improperly there's not just a fire risk to your property, but there can be associated health hazards, which is why it is best to hire an experienced Bloxwich installation team for fireplaces. Airflow must be sufficient in any room that a fireplace is to be installed; and it's a requirement in Part J of the Building Regulations that this is the case. A fire will not burn effectively if there is not enough oxygen, and death could occur where carbon monoxide gas builds-up.

To overcome this problem a professional fireplace installation team will evaluate the situation and fit vents in the room, or underneath the flooring, to guarantee an adequate amount of air flow for the fire to burn safely and efficiently. To avoid condensed air becoming trapped in blocked off or unused chimney flues and producing staining and damp spots, vents might have to be installed by the fireplace installation team to increase the airflow.
