Before you begin chipping away at a blocked up chimney there are some things you will need to consider to make sure you can install your new fireplace in an efficient and safe way. All work carried out must follow Part J of the UK's Building Regulations, which addresses the construction and installation of flue linings, fireplaces, chimney breasts and hearths of any combustible appliance.

PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

You might be able to do some of the remodeling work to a pre-existing fireplace if you have the ability needed, however there is always a problem in finding structural and safety issues that need to be resolved professionally. If you are lucky when you expose a stopped up 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. It is much more likely that you will discover crumbling brickwork that needs structural reinforcement and a stopped up flue.

An incorrectly installed fireplace can cause significant respiratory health problems and fire risk and, as such, should only be put in by a professional fireplace installer in Tiptree with the experience and knowledge to do the work safely. A key part of the Building Regulations for fireplaces is that enough oxygen is available in a room for a fire to burn properly and efficiently. Inadequate oxygen means that the fire will not burn properly, and carbon monoxide could accumulate, which can cause breathing problems or even death.

To overcome this issue a fireplace specialist in Tiptree will assess the circumstances and install vents in the room, or beneath the floor, to guarantee a sufficient air flow for the fire to combust effectively and safely. Unused and blocked up chimney flues may also have to have air vents fitted as they can sometimes trap moist air inside them causing damp to build up inside the chimney.

BEFORE WORK STARTS

A huge amount of dust and soot can be discharged from a blocked up chimney upon reopening it for renovation. It is sensible to remove any furniture, carpets and rugs from an area where you're going to uncover an old fireplace, to avoid them being affected by dust, muck and soot that will be whipped up during the fireplace installation work. If you're installing a fireplace as part of a larger restoration project then it should be one of the first things to be done once you have got the room back to its bare walls and floors. By opening up a fireplace first you will prevent any soot from the chimney causing discolouring damage to other parts of your restoration project, such as fresh plaster or wallpapered walls.

CONSTRUCTION & STRUCTURAL WORK

Now that you can see the fireplace opening it's time to sweep and clean the chimney and hearth and see what is fit for restoring. Contacting a proper chimney sweep to clean your chimney will be one of the initial items on the checklist. They will not only make sure your chimney and flue are completely clean, but they can additionally look at the condition of the flue liner and existing chimney and provide guidance if you need to upgrade any section of the flue and chimney.

DESIGNS OF FIREPLACE

If you go to a fireplace showroom you are spoilt for choice with the wide range of different options available to you. The advice and recommendations from your fireplace installers, which will be in accordance with your specific requirements, will help you to pick a fireplace which is both perfect for your flue and chimney, as well as for your decor.

The age of your property, and the theme that you are trying to develop for your room, should all help you to determine the design and type of fireplace that's most suitable for you. If you've got an inglenook fireplace, a wood burner can look spectacular set inside it, and also has the benefit of effectively deflecting the heat into the room from the brick or stone walls that surround the stove.

A wood burner is also an excellent option if your home does not have a chimney breast. Providing that you've got an outside wall through which a stainless steel flue from the back or top of the stove can be passed, you don't need to have an existing chimney in place to be able to enjoy that "real" fire experience.
