DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

If you're a competent and keen DIYer it might be quite possible to renovate a blocked or bricked-up fireplace, but the probability of running into structural issues in most cases is unfortunately high. It might be your good fortune when you pull back the boarding surrounding a disused fireplace to find a hidden gem that needs nothing more than a good clean up and a visit from a chimney sweep to get a roaring fire going. More likely you will discover crumbling brickwork that needs structural reinforcement and a blocked flue.

If fireplaces are installed improperly there is not just a risk of fire to your property, but there can be health hazards, which is why it's best to hire a competent Dewsbury installation company for a fireplace. As stated in the Building Regulations for fireplaces, there must be enough airflow in a room where there's a fireplace, because in order to burn properly, a sufficient quantity of oxygen is required. An inefficiently burning fire in a poorly ventilated room can result in a build-up of deadly carbon monoxide gas.

To allow the fireplace to get sufficient oxygen to burn safely and properly at all times, it may be a requirement for a competent fireplace installation team to fit airflow vents in floor and walls. They may also have to install air vents in unused chimney flues which can sometimes trap condensing air and cause staining and damp spots on your chimney breast.

BEFORE WORK BEGINS

Chimney breasts are notorious for the amount of soot and muck that can accumulate within them, therefore when you set out to open up a fireplace for renovation you can anticipate that it will be a rather messy operation. A decent Dewsbury fireplace installer will bring dust sheets to cover up your home furnishings and provide some form of protection, but it is advisable when possible to remove furniture and woven floor coverings from the area before any work starts. Because of the mess involved, if the fireplace installation is just a part of a bigger home refurbishment project, it should be one of the initial things to be done. This will help to prevent any impairment by soot and other chimney dirt to any completed work.

STRUCTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION WORK

With your fireplace opened up, it's time to see what can be renovated and give the hearth and chimney an intensive clean. The very first thing on your agenda should be to call in a decent Dewsbury chimney sweep. A chimney sweep will firstly clean the flue and whilst doing this will inspect the condition of the chimney and offer you advice on whether a new flue liner is required.

Dewsbury Fireplace Installer Quotes

All of the current Building Regulations should be adhered to, if you need to install a new flue liner or strengthen the chimney structure. A reputable fireplace installer in Dewsbury will be required to undertake this task, and will need the knowledge and skills in construction to closely follow all building regulations.

It is quite likely that a concrete or steel lintel will need to be installed, if the revealed fireplace is of a size that's larger than your needs. And after this, restoring or replacing the hearth will be the next step in your fireplace installation in Dewsbury. The current Building Regulations advise that the hearth must be raised slightly above the normal floor level, although in the old days it would have been sunk into a void in the floor. You could think about asking your Dewsbury fireplace builder about a custom-made, bespoke hearth to fit in with your home's style and design, or if your fireplace is of a standard size, there's an enormous selection of ready-made options in concrete, marble and stone.

FIREPLACE STYLES

Deciding on your choice of fireplace can be difficult amongst the different shapes, styles and sizes available from an online shop or fireplace showroom. It usually pays to heed the advice of the fireplace company with regards to which fireplaces will be suited to your existing chimney, flue and airflow conditions, because some of them will not be.

An open fireplace may be perfect for some rooms and properties in Dewsbury, whilst a multi-fuel or wood burning stove will be more suitable for others. If you are lucky enough to have a home with an inglenook fireplace for example, this can be the ideal position for a traditional iron wood-burner stove. This won't just reflect the heat back into the room, but will also emphasise the character and charm of the stove itself.

It's still possible to put in a multi-fuel or wood burning stove, even if you do not have a chimney breast in your Dewsbury home. An existing chimney is not required because a stainless steel flue is taken straight from the top or rear of the stove and channeled through an external wall.

Electric Fireplaces - These are a suitable option just about any room and property in Dewsbury, and can be easily and safely installed by any reasonably competent individual.

Flue Linings

Enabling your chimney to perform a great deal more efficiently, a flue liner or chimney liner is a vital part of your chimney structure. Transporting smoke and fumes to the outside of your home, a flue liner runs the full length of your chimney, and can be made from a variety of materials including clay, ceramics or stainless steel. There's a reasonable chance that if your Dewsbury home is quite old, the chimney may not even have a lining, and even if it does it will very likely need to be replaced.

Burning fires create toxic gases which can impair and eat away at the flue inside your chimney. Whilst it is being cleaned, get the sweep or fireplace specialist to check your flue lining for any damages or any prospects of it failing in the near future. If it is compromised, those dangerous gases might seep into your living area rather than being properly vented outdoors. Defective flue liners can also lead to house fires - so make sure that you have them checked out! (Tags: Flue Lining Dewsbury, Chimney Liners Dewsbury, Flue Liners Dewsbury).
