DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

You may be capable of doing some of the restoration work to a blocked up fireplace if you've got the skills to do so, but structural and safety issues are often found that need to be resolved by a professional tradesman. If you're lucky when you open up a boarded fireplace you may find a decent chimney breast, lintel and hearth that involves nothing other than the advice and services of a chimney sweep to get it ready for a fire once more. What is more common however is a jumble of crumbling, old brickwork covering a blocked flue, and needs some form of structural modification before it can be safely used.

If fireplaces are installed improperly there is not only a fire risk to your property, but there can be associated health hazards, which is why it is best to bring in a professional Perton installation team for a fireplace. Airflow must be adequate in any room which has a fireplace; and it is a key requirement of the Building Regulations that this is the case. Not enough oxygen means the fire will not burn well, and a build up of carbon monoxide could occur, which can cause death.

To get past this issue a fireplace specialist in Perton will evaluate the situation and fit vents in the room, or under the floors, to guarantee a satisfactory air flow for the fire to burn safely and properly. To prevent condensed air from becoming trapped in unused or blocked off chimney flues and creating staining and damp spots, vents might have to be installed by the fireplace installation team to enhance the airflow.
