PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION OR DIY?

If you are a keen DIYer it may be possible to renovate a bricked-up fireplace, but the likelihood of encountering structural issues in many cases is high. It might be that in order to get a fire roaring once more you'll need nothing more than a quick clean of the hearth and a sweeping of the chimney. However, what you'll more likely find is an area of crumbling bricks that conceals problems such as a blocked chimney or a lintel that requires replacement.

Employing a specialist fireplace fitter in Chineham is normally advised, because a fireplace that is wrongly installed can cause respiratory problems and a severe risk of fire. So that a fire can burn correctly in a room with a fireplace, there must be plenty of airflow to create an adequate amount of oxygen. A fire won't burn efficiently in a room where there is not enough oxygen, and death could occur if there's a build-up of carbon monoxide fumes.

To get past this concern a professional installation team will evaluate the situation and fit vents around the room, or under the flooring, to ensure a sufficient air flow for the fire to combust safely and efficiently. Unused and blocked up chimney flues may also need to have air vents fitted as they can sometimes trap moist air within them causing damp to develop inside the chimney.

BEFORE WORK BEGINS

Old chimneys are renowned for the volume of grime and soot that can accumulate within them, so when you open up a disused fireplace you can expect it to be a fairly messy operation. It's advised to remove your your belongings and any woven materials before any fireplace renovation work starts, because even with dust sheets for your furnishings, the risk of impairment from grime and soot is still possible. If you're conducting a complete renovation of a house or room, the fireplace should be opened up and worked on before any decoration or plastering works are undertaken. If other work has already been accomplished, this could be affected by dust and chimney soot.

After a chimney sweeps assessment it may be necessary to install a new liner and/or strengthen the chimney breast in accordance with Part J of the Building Regulations. This is not going to be the sort of work that can be accomplished by a DIY person, so you will want to hire a capable builder or fireplace installer who has experience in good working practices and a knowledge of the appropriate Building Regs.

In older buildings you may discover that the original fireplace is too large for your needs, in which case a supporting concrete lintel will be needed to adapt the opening.
