Fireplace Fitter Ellon Scotland (AB41): Re-opening an old disused fireplace to put in an open fire, a wood burner or a gas fire is a great way to add a homely feel and some character to any Ellon property. So long as there's a ready supply of wood, the addition of an open fire or multi-fuel stove for those freezing winter days can even be less expensive than conventional central heating systems. Combine a back boiler with your fireplace and you will be able to enjoy endless supplies of hot water to save you even more cash.
There are a number of things that you'll have to do to make sure you can safely install your new fireplace, before you start to prise away at a blocked up chimney. Any work that is done on your fireplace, chimney breast, hearth and flue lining must comply with the Building Regs, Part J for heat producing appliances. If you live in a listed building or are in a designated conservation area you should check with local authorities to find out if planning permission is needed for installing a fireplace in your property.
PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION OR DIY?
When renovating an old bricked-up fireplace, there's a pretty good chance of encountering structural problems, thus even if you are a keen DIYer you could easily find this type of work difficult. It might be that so as to get a fire roaring once more you will need nothing more than a quick clean of the hearth and a visit from a chimney sweep. Much more likely you'll come across crumbling brickwork that needs structural modifications and a blocked flue.
If a fireplace is installed improperly there is not just a fire risk to your property, but there can be health hazards, which is why it's best to bring in a specialist Ellon installation team for fireplaces. A key part of the Building Regulations (Part J) for fireplaces is that enough oxygen is available in a room for a fire to burn properly and efficiently. Lethal carbon monoxide can soon accumulate from a fire burning inefficiently in an inadequately ventilated room.
It could be necessary to fit airflow vents in walls and floors to enable the fireplace to receive sufficient oxygen to burn effectively and safely at all times. To prevent condensed air becoming trapped in unused or blocked off chimney flues and creating damp spots and staining, vents might need to be fitted by the installation team to improve the airflow.
BEFORE WORK COMMENCES
A large amount of soot and other muck can be discharged from a blocked up chimney when opening it up for restoration. It is sensible to remove your your carpets and furniture before any fireplace refurbishment work begins, because even with dust sheets for your belongings, the likelihood of impairment from dust and soot is still a possibility. Due to the mess that's involved, if your fireplace installation is only part of a bigger home restoration project, it ought to be one of the initial tasks that you do after the room has been taken back to bare floors and walls in preparation. This avoids any staining damage to any restored work you've already done.
STRUCTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION WORK
Now that you are able to see the fireplace opening it is time to clean and sweep the hearth and chimney and figure out what is fit for refurbishment. One of the first items on your checklist should be to get hold of a professional chimney sweep who operates in the Ellon area. While doing cleaning, they'll be in a good position to assess the structural integrity of your chimney and flue liner, and suggest what is needed to get it back into shape.
All of the relevant UK Building Regulations should be adhered to, if it is necessary to strengthen the chimney structure or install a flue lining. This is not going to be the type of work that can be accomplished by a DIY person, so you will want to bring in a competent builder or fireplace fitter with experience in good construction techniques and an extensive knowledge of the Building Regulations.
As soon as this is complete the next phase for your Ellon fireplace installation should be to update the hearth. If the current hearth is sunken into the floor you will need to raise it to observe the most recent Building Regulations in the UK. You will find that there is a huge selection of pre-formed hearths in stone, slate or marble, but if you have a non-standard sized fireplace you might have to opt for a custom-made hearth, which you should ask your Ellon fireplace builder about.
FIREPLACE STYLES AND DESIGNS
Browsing on the net or checking out a nearby fireplace outlet will give you an indication of the vast array of different shapes, styles and sizes of fireplace for your home. So you can select a fireplace which is both suitable for your chimney and flue, as well as for your decor, it is recommended that you listen to the advice of the salespeople and the installation team, which will be in accordance with your requirements.
Certain houses and rooms will look better with an open fireplace than a multi-fuel stove or a wood burner and vice versa. By way of example, a wood burning stove looks amazing set back in an old-fashioned inglenook fireplace, which highlights the character of the stove and also reflects the heat into the room to good effect.
Even if you haven't got an existing chimney breast in your Ellon property, it is still entirely possible to put in a wood burning stove. Since a flue can be routed through an external wall and doesn't need an existing chimney, it's still feasible to fit this type of fireplace.
