There are a few vital considerations you must think of before you commence any work, if you are going to create an attractive, safe and efficient fireplace in your home. All work carried out must comply with Part J of the UK's Building Regulations, which addresses the installation and construction of hearths, flue linings, chimney breasts and fireplaces of any combustible appliance. If your property is a listed building you will also have to find out if planning permission is required from the local council before any work begins.

If you're a competent and keen DIY'er it might be quite possible to renovate a bricked-up fireplace, but the chances of experiencing structural issues in many cases is regrettably high. If you are fortunate when you open up a boarded fireplace you might find a decent hearth, lintel and chimney breast that needs nothing other than the services and advice of a chimney sweep to get a toasty fire going. What's more typical however is an area of crumbling brickwork that hides a stopped up flue, and needs some form of structural reinforcement before it can be safely used.

It is usually best to look to the knowledge and experience of a professional fireplace installer in Dursley, due to the severe fire and health risk problems associated with an incorrectly installed or renovated fireplace. There always has to be a decent air flow into a room or space where a fireplace is installed to ensure sufficient amounts of oxygen allow the fire to burn properly. Not enough oxygen means that the fire won't burn properly, and carbon monoxide could build up, which can lead to breathing problems or even death.

To successfully overcome any airflow issues, vents could be installed in the room as part of a fireplace installation, to guarantee suitable oxygen levels reach the fire. To prevent condensed air from becoming trapped in blocked off or unused chimney flues and producing staining and damp spots, vents might need to be fitted by the installation team to introduce some airflow.

A huge amount of soot and other dirt can be released from a bricked up fireplace upon reopening it for renovation. Even with covers and other dust protection for your home furnishings, the risk of impairment from soot and muck is still possible and it's advisable to remove your carpets and furniture before any fireplace renovation work and chimney cleaning begins. If you're carrying out a full renovation of a room or house, the fireplace should be opened up before any plastering or decorating is tackled. By opening a fireplace first you'll stop any chimney soot causing damage to other stages of your project, such as fresh plasterwork or wallpapered walls.


Once you have exposed 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 clear out any sections of hearth that may have been left in place. You now need to speak to your chimney sweep, if you haven't already done so, to come and clean the old fireplace and chimney. A chimney sweep will first of all clean the flue and whilst doing this will inspect the condition of the chimney and provide guidance on whether you need a new flue liner.

Following a chimney sweep examination it may be necessary to install a new liner and/or strengthen the chimney breast as set out in Part J of the Building Regulations. These are jobs that need to be done by an experienced tradesman with a knowledge of the appropriate regulations and reliable construction skills.

If the dimensions of the original fireplace are larger than your requirements, a supporting concrete lintel will need to be installed. Once this is complete the next phase of your Dursley fireplace installation will be to update the hearth. In earlier times the hearth was generally sunken into a hole in the floor, however current regulations demand that it is raised above floor level. There are bespoke solutions to fit any style and size of fireplace, or you can pick from a variety of popular size and shape hearths to match your decor.
