DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

If you are a keen and competent DIYer it is quite possible to restore a blocked or bricked-up fireplace, but the likelihood of experiencing structural issues in many cases is regrettably high. If you're fortunate when you expose a blocked up fireplace you may find a decent chimney breast, lintel and hearth that involves little more than the advice and services of a chimney sweep to get it ready for a fire once more.

If a fireplace is installed improperly there's not just a risk of fire to your property, but there can also be associated respiratory health hazards, which is why it is advisable to employ a specialist Dudley installation company for fireplaces. Airflow has to be sufficient in any room in which a fireplace is to be installed; and it is a key requirement of the Building Regulations that this is so. Not enough oxygen means the fire will not burn effectively, and an accumulation of carbon monoxide could occur, which can cause death.

To safely get around any issues with air flow, vents may be installed in the room during a fireplace installation, to ensure suitable oxygen levels reach the fire. Unused and blocked up chimney flues might also need to have air vents fitted as they can trap moist air causing damp to build up inside the chimney.
