PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

You might be capable of doing some of the work in restoring a bricked-up fireplace if you've got the ability to do so, however there is always a problem in finding safety and structural problems which need to be resolved by a professional tradesman. You may be fortunate when you expose the old fireplace and find out that you need nothing more than a decent clean out of the hearth and a quick chimney sweep in order to get your fire roaring once more. However, what you will most likely find is a wall of crumbling bricks that hides issues such as a lintel that needs replacing or a blocked up chimney.

If fireplaces are installed improperly there's not just a fire risk to your property, but there can be health hazards, which is why it is advisable to bring in a specialist Desborough installation team for a fireplace. Airflow has to be satisfactory in any room which has a fireplace; and it is a requirement in the Building Regulations that this is the case. A deficiency of oxygen means that the fire will not burn effectively, and a build up of carbon monoxide fumes could occur, which can cause injury or death.

To overcome this issue a professional fireplace installation team will consider the circumstances and fit vents in the room, or underneath the floor, to ensure an adequate amount of air flow for the fire to burn effectively and safely. Unused and blocked up chimney flues may also have to have air vents fitted as they can sometimes trap moist air within them causing damp to occur inside the chimney.

This will help to avoid any harm by soot and dirt to any completed renovation work.

Flues

A crucial element of the chimney system on your house, a flue liner improves the overall safety of your chimney whilst enabling it to function more effectively than it otherwise would. With the objective of transporting fumes to the outside of a building, flue liners are conduits fabricated from clay, ceramic material or metal which are fitted to the inside of chimneys. Some chimneys in older homes in Desborough may not even have a lining, or if the current liner is damaged, might have to be re-lined.

Harmful fumes and gases can be created by burning fires and these gases can soon harm the flue of your chimney. Your flue must be regularly assessed for damage and possible problems every time it's being cleaned. If there is damage, those dangerous gases might possibly seep into your living area instead of being properly vented outdoors. There is also the risk of fires inside the property because an impaired flue liner can permit intense heat to penetrate the chimney structure.
