If you are a competent and keen DIY'er it is quite possible to restore a bricked-up or closed-off fireplace, however the probability of encountering structural issues in the majority of cases is regrettably high. It might be your good fortune when you remove the covering from a disused fireplace to discover a hidden treasure which requires little more than a good clean up and a call to a chimney sweep to get a fire roaring once again.

If a fireplace is installed improperly there's not just a fire risk to your home, but there can also be health hazards, which is why it is best to bring in a certified Guisborough installation team for fireplaces. Airflow must be satisfactory in any room in which a fireplace is to be installed; and it's a key requirement of the Building Regulations that this is so. If there is not enough airflow then it is possible that a fire will not burn efficiently and cause carbon monoxide fumes to build up, which can be deadly.
To safely get over any airflow problems, vents may be fitted in the room during a fireplace installation, to guarantee suitable levels of oxygen reach the fire. They might also have to install air vents in unused chimney flues which can trap moist air and lead to staining and damp spots on your chimney breast.
BEFORE WORK BEGINS

STRUCTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION WORK
With the fireplace open, it is time to see what is in a fit state to be renovated or replaced and to give the chimney and hearth an intensive cleaning. You now ought to get hold of your chimney sweep, if you've not already done this, to come and clean the old chimney and fireplace. They'll not only make sure your chimney and flue are nice and clean, but they can additionally check the state of the chimney and flue liner and offer guidance about whether you need to replace any area of the flue and chimney.
