PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

A basic remodel of a pre-existing fireplace can generally be achieved by a skilled DIYer, however if any building work is necessary there's the possibility of encountering structural issues that have to be resolved by a professional. It may be that in order to get a fire burning once more you'll need little more than a quick clean of the hearth and a visit from a chimney sweep. Much more likely you'll come across a blocked flue and crumbling brickwork that needs structural modifications.

Due to the severe health and fire risk issues that can result from an improperly fitted or restored fireplace, it is advisable to draw on the experience and knowledge of a skilled fireplace fitter and builder in Sileby. A major part of Part J of the Building Regulations for fireplaces is that sufficient oxygen is available for the fire to burn properly and efficiently. Dangerous carbon monoxide can develop from a fire burning inefficiently in a poorly ventilated space.

To overcome this problem a professional installation team will consider the situation and fit vents around the room, or beneath the flooring, to guarantee an adequate air flow for the fire to combust effectively and safely. Unused and blocked up chimney flues might also have to have air vents fitted as they can trap moist air inside them and cause damp to build up inside the chimney breast.
