Fireplace Fitter Polesworth Warwickshire (B78): A splendid way to add charm to any Polesworth property is by installing a brand new fireplace, or restoring an existing one. The addition of an open fire or wood burning stove for those frosty winter evenings can even prove to be less expensive than some central heating systems, providing that you have a regular source of timber or fuel. If combined with a back boiler it can supply you with plenty of steaming hot water in the process.
There are a few crucial considerations you must think of before you begin any work, if you are to establish an attractive, efficient and safe fireplace in your house. Any work that's done on your chimney breast, flue lining, hearth and fireplace must follow the United Kingdom's Building Regs, Part J for combustible appliances. If you are living in a designated conservation area or a listed building you should check with local authorities to see if planning permission is needed for a fireplace installation in your home.
DIY OR PROFESSIONAL FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?
You might be able to do some of the restoration work to a pre-existing fireplace if you've got the ability to do so, but structural and safety issues are often discovered that need to be resolved by a professional. You may be lucky when you expose the old fireplace and discover that you need little more than a decent chimney sweep and a quick clean out of the hearth to get a fire roaring once more. It is much more likely that you will discover a blocked flue and crumbling brickwork that needs structural reinforcement.
A poorly fitted fireplace can cause severe respiratory health problems and fire risk and should only be put in by a professional fireplace installer in Polesworth with the experience and knowledge to install it effectively. Airflow must be satisfactory in any room that a fireplace is to be installed; and it's a requirement in the Building Regulations (Part J) that this is so. If there's not enough airflow then it's possible that a fire will burn inefficiently and cause carbon monoxide fumes to build up, which can be lethal.
To get past this concern a fireplace specialist in Polesworth will analyse the circumstances and fit vents in the room, or under the flooring, to ensure a satisfactory airflow for the fire to burn properly and safely. To avoid condensed air from becoming trapped in blocked off or unused chimney flues and creating damp spots and staining, vents might have to be fitted by the installation team to introduce more airflow.
BEFORE WORK STARTS
Having a fireplace opened up can create large amounts of soot and dust. Even with coverings for your home furnishings, the chance of impairment from dirt and soot is still possible and it's advisable to remove your carpets and furniture before any fireplace renovation work begins. If you're conducting a complete renovation of a room or house, the fireplace should be opened up and worked on before any plastering or decorating is tackled. This stops any discolouring damage to any renovated work you have already completed.
STRUCTURAL & CONSTRUCTION WORK
With the fireplace now open, it's time to see what is in a fit state to be renovated and to give the chimney and hearth a comprehensive clean. The very first item on your agenda will be to contact a decent chimney sweep. They will be able to offer you professional guidance on the flue and chimney after sweeping, concerning the situation with the chimney structure and whether it is advisable to exchange the existing lining.
If it is necessary to strengthen the chimney or install a flue lining all UK Building Regulations must be complied with. A reliable fireplace installer in Polesworth will be needed to undertake this work, and will need the knowledge and skills in construction to follow all building regulations.
In older buildings you may find that the revealed fireplace is too big for your purposes, in which case a supporting concrete lintel will be necessary to adapt the opening. When you've successfully supported the fireplace with your lintel it will then be time to upgrade or repair the hearth. You may find your existing hearth has been set into a floor void, but to be in accordance with current building regulations it is required to be raised above floor level. If your fireplace is of non-standard size you may have to choose a custom-built hearth, however there are also a whole host of "off-the-shelf" hearths in concrete, marble or slate.
STYLE OF FIREPLACE
A trip to a fireplace showroom or a browse online will illustrate the alternatives that are available for the different fireplace designs and styles. Every fireplace will not be appropriate for your chimney and flue and it's wise to accept any guidance and advice from your installation team with regards to your specific circumstances.
Whether you go for a multi-fuel stove, an open fireplace or a wood burner will depend on the overall style that you're trying to develop, your existing decor and perhaps even, the age of your house. As an example, an inglenook fireplace can be an ideal backdrop to an old-fashioned cast iron wood burning stove, highlighting its charm and deflecting heat back into the room.
Even if you don't have an existing chimney in your Polesworth property, it's still feasible to put in a multi-fuel stove or a wood burner. An existing chimney is not needed in this instance as the flue is fitted to the rear or top of the stove and routed through an exterior wall.
