DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

A simple remodeling of a pre-existing fireplace can probably be completed by a skilled DIYer, however if any building work is necessary there's a chance of encountering structural issues which will need to be handled professionally. If you are lucky when you expose a blocked up fireplace you might find a decent chimney breast, lintel and hearth that requires nothing other than the advice and services of a chimney sweep to get it ready for a fire once more. However, what you'll more likely discover is a patch of crumbling bricks that conceals issues such as a lintel that needs replacing or a blocked up chimney.

If your dwelling in Molesey has a fireplace installed and it isn't put in correctly, there isn't just a serious risk of fire, but also of respiratory health issues. Therefore, using a professional fireplace fitter is widely recommended in most cases. According to Part J of the Building Regulations, a room that has a fireplace installed in it must have adequate airflow and oxygen to allow the fire to burn efficiently. Carbon monoxide gas (which is deadly) can build-up and become a problem in an inadequately ventilated room where a fire that is burning inefficiently is installed.

It may be necessary to install airflow vents in walls and floors to enable the fire to receive ample oxygen to burn effectively and safely at all times. To prevent condensed air from becoming trapped in unused chimney flues and creating staining and damp spots, vents may need to be installed by the fireplace installation team to increase the airflow.
