Fireplace Fitter Ossett West Yorkshire (WF5): Putting in a new fireplace or re-opening a disused fireplace in your Ossett home is a wonderful way to add charm and a homely feel to any room. If you opt to combine your new fireplace with a back boiler, you can not only enjoy the warmth and ambience of an open fire or stove during the chilly winter evenings, you will also be supplied with lots of boiling hot water.
There are a few crucial considerations to make before you begin any work, if you are going to establish a safe, efficient and attractive fireplace in your property. Any work that is carried out on your flue lining, fireplace, chimney breast and hearth must conform to the UK's Building Regs, Part J for combustible appliances. If you reside in a listed building you will also need to find out if planning permission is necessary from the local authorities before any work commences.
PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?
A straightforward restoration of a current fireplace can generally be completed by a keen DIY person, but if any construction work is needed there's a possibility of encountering structural problems that will need to be dealt with professionally. If you're lucky when you open up a blocked up fireplace you might find a decent lintel, chimney breast and hearth that requires little more than the services and advice of a chimney sweep to get it ready for use. More likely you will come across a blocked flue and old brickwork that requires structural modifications.
If a fireplace is installed improperly there's not only a fire risk to your home, but there can be health hazards, which is why it is better to employ a specialist Ossett installation company for fireplaces. Airflow must be satisfactory in any room which has a fireplace; in fact it is a requirement in the Building Regulations (Part J) that this is so. Dangerous carbon monoxide fumes can soon accumulate from a fire burning inefficiently in an inadequately ventilated space.
It could be necessary to install airflow vents in walls and floors to allow the fireplace to get ample oxygen to burn safely and efficiently all the time. To avoid condensed air becoming trapped in unused chimney flues and producing damp spots and staining, vents might need to be fitted by the fireplace installation team to improve the airflow.
BEFORE WORK BEGINS
An enormous amount of dirt and soot can be discharged from a blocked up fireplace when opening it up for restoration. It is good practice to remove any carpets, rugs and furniture from a room where you are going to uncover an old fireplace, to avoid them from being damaged by dust, soot and muck that might be stirred up during the fireplace installation work. If your fireplace is being installed as part of an overall renovation then it should be one of the initial things to be completed once you have brought the room back to bare walls and floors. This helps to prevent any discolouration damage to any refurbished work you might have already completed.
STRUCTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION WORK
Now that you can see the fireplace opening it is time to sweep and clean the hearth and chimney and identify what can be repaired. Bringing in a proper chimney sweep to clean your chimney is one of the initial things on your agenda. They'll be able to provide you with expert advice on the chimney and flue after sweeping, regarding the condition of the structure of the chimney and if it would be advisable to exchange the existing flue lining.
If it is necessary to strengthen the chimney or install a flue lining all relevant UK Building Regulations must be complied with. This type of work needs to be completed by a skilled tradesman who is acquainted with the current building regulations and decent construction practices.
If the size of the original fireplace is greater than your needs, a concrete supporting lintel will need to be put in. When you've successfully supported the fireplace with your lintel it will then be necessary to upgrade or renovate the hearth. You may find your existing hearth has been sunken into the floor, however to conform to latest regulations it is required to be raised above floor level. If your fireplace is not a standard size you may have to purchase a made to measure hearth, but there are a wide variety of ready to fit hearths in marble, concrete or slate.
DESIGNS AND STYLES OF FIREPLACE
A trip to a fireplace showroom or a browse online will show the choices available for the different fireplace designs and styles. It is quite possible that due to your current flue, chimney and airflow to the room, that certain fireplace designs may not be suitable, and it's advisable to follow the the advice and recommendations of your fireplace installation company with respect to this.
The age of your property, and the theme that you are trying to establish for your room, will all help you decide upon the design and type of fireplace which is most suitable for you. For example, an inglenook fireplace can be an ideal backdrop to a classic cast iron wood-burner stove, highlighting its character and deflecting heat back into the room.
Even if you haven't got an existing chimney in your Ossett property, it's still feasible to install a wood burning or multi fuel stove. A chimney isn't needed as a stainless steel flue is fitted to the rear or top of the stove and taken out through an exterior wall.
