However before you start bashing down the walls of a boarded over fireplace there are some vital considerations you must bear in mind if you are to finish up with a safe and efficient fireplace. Any work that is done on your flue lining, fireplace, hearth and chimney breast must comply with the UK's Building Regulations, Part J for combustible appliances. If you live in a listed building or are in a designated conservation area you must check with local council if planning permission is necessary for a fireplace installation in your property.

DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

A basic remodeling of an existing fireplace can probably be achieved by a skilled do-it-yourselfer, however if any construction work is needed there's a possibility of running into structural problems which need to be handled by a professional. You could be lucky when revealing your old fireplace and find out you need little more than a good chimney sweep and a quick clean up of the hearth in order to get a fire roaring. However, what you'll likely find is a pile of old bricks that conceals problems such as a blocked chimney or a lintel that requires replacement.

If a fireplace is installed incorrectly there's not only a risk of fire to your property, but there can be associated health hazards, which is why it is better to hire an experienced Caister-on-Sea installation company for a fireplace. A major factor of the Building Regulations (Part J) for fireplaces is that enough oxygen is available in a room for the fire to burn properly and efficiently. Not enough oxygen means the fire won't burn properly, and an accumulation of carbon monoxide could occur, which can cause injury or death.

To get past this issue a professional installation team will analyse the circumstances and install vents around the room, or underneath the flooring, to guarantee a satisfactory airflow for the fire to combust safely and properly. To avoid condensed air from becoming trapped in blocked off or unused chimney flues and causing staining and damp spots, vents may need to be fitted by the installation team to introduce some airflow.

BEFORE WORK COMMENCES

A substantial amount of soot and other muck can be discharged from an old chimney upon reopening it for restoration. Even with dust sheets for your home furnishings, the chance of damage from dust and soot is still possible and it's advisable to remove your belongings and any woven materials before any fireplace renovation work commences. If your fireplace is being fitted as part of a larger restoration project then it should be one of the initial things to be worked on once you have taken the room back to its bare floors and walls. This should help to avoid any damage by dirt and chimney soot to any completed work.

STRUCTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION WORK
