Fireplace Fitter Conisbrough South Yorkshire (DN12): A good way to add some charm to any Conisbrough home is by the installation of a new fireplace, or the restoration of an existing one. Adding a wood burning stove or open fire for those chilly winter evenings can even prove to be less expensive than certain central heating systems, so long as you have a good source of wood. If combined with a back boiler it can supply you with plentiful hot water at the same time.
Before you start chipping away at a blocked up chimney there are some things you will need to think about to make sure you can install your new fireplace in a safe and efficient way. All work carried out must follow Part J of the UK's Building Regulations, which addresses the construction and installation of fireplaces, flue linings, chimney breasts and hearths of any combustible appliance. Planning permission may also have to be sought before work commences if your property is in a conservation area or is listed.
DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?
If you are a keen and competent do-it-yourselfer it may be quite possible to restore a bricked-up or closed-off fireplace, but the chances of experiencing structural issues in the majority of cases is high. If you're lucky when you open up a blocked up fireplace you might find a decent chimney breast, hearth and lintel that requires little more than the services and advice of a chimney sweep to get it ready for a fire once more. What is more commonplace however is a swathe of old brickwork that conceals a blocked flue, and also requires some form of structural modification before it can be used safely.
An incorrectly fitted fireplace can cause severe fire risk and respiratory health problems and, as such, should only be fitted by a professional fireplace specialist in Conisbrough with the knowledge and experience to install it effectively. A major part of the Building Regulations (Part J) for fireplaces is that sufficient oxygen is available in a room for a fire to burn efficiently and safely. If the airflow is not good enough then it's quite possible that a fire will burn inefficiently and cause a build-up of carbon monoxide fumes, which can be lethal.
It may be necessary to install airflow vents in walls and floors to allow the fire to receive adequate oxygen to burn safely and effectively all the time. Blocked off and unused chimney flues may also need to have air vents fitted as they can trap moist air within them causing damp to occur inside the chimney breast.
BEFORE WORK STARTS
An enormous amount of soot and dust can be discharged from a blocked up chimney upon reopening it for renovation. A fireplace installer will bring dust sheets to cover up your furniture and provide a bit of protection, however it is sensible where feasible to remove furniture and carpets from the room before work starts. If you're engaging in a complete renovation of a room or house, the fireplace should be opened up and worked on before any decoration or plastering works are tackled. This should help to prevent any damage by soot and other chimney dirt to any previously completed work.
CONSTRUCTION & STRUCTURAL WORK
Once you've revealed your old fireplace you will have a better understanding of what work needs to be done, and also be in a position to sweep the chimney and clean any hearth that may have been left in place. Bringing in a chimney sweep to clean your chimney is one of the very first items on the checklist. A chimney sweep will firstly clean the flue and while doing so can check the condition of the chimney and offer guidance on whether you need a new flue liner.
It may be vital to install a new flue lining to observe the all important UK Building Regulations, and work may also be required to strengthen the original chimney and chimney breast. A reputable fireplace installer and builder in Conisbrough will be needed to accomplish this work, and will need the knowledge and skills in construction to closely follow all building regulations.
In buildings that are older you may discover the revealed fireplace is too big for your needs, in which case a supporting concrete lintel will be required to adapt the opening. Once this has been done the next step of your fireplace installation in Conisbrough will be to update the hearth. If the current hearth is set into the floor you'll need to raise it to comply with the latest building regulations. If your fireplace is not a standard size you may have to purchase a custom-built hearth, however there are a wide range of pre-made hearths in concrete, marble or slate.
STYLES OF FIREPLACE
A quick browse online or a trip to a fireplace showroom will reveal the alternatives that are available for the different fireplace designs and styles. Not all fireplaces will be appropriate for your existing flue and chimney and it's wise to accept any guidance and advice offered by your fireplace installers with regards to your particular circumstances.
You home's age, and the theme that you're trying to create for your room, should all help you to decide upon the design and type of fireplace that is most suitable. For instance, an attractive inglenook fireplace can be an ideal backdrop for an old-fashioned cast iron wood-burner stove, which highlights its character and deflects the heat into the room.
Even if your Conisbrough home does not have a chimney breast you've still got the option of a feature fireplace by installing a multi-fuel stove or a wood burner. A chimney is not needed in this instance because the flue is taken directly from the rear or top of the stove and channeled through an outside wall.
