PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?

A basic restoration of a pre-existing fireplace can probably be executed by a skilled DIY enthusiast, however if any construction work is necessary there's a chance of encountering structural issues which have to be dealt with professionally. You may be lucky when you expose the old fireplace and find out you need nothing more than a decent clean up of the hearth and a chimney sweep to get a fire roaring once more. What is more commonplace however is a swathe of old, crumbling brickwork that conceals a blocked flue, and needs some form of structural modification before it can be safely used.

It's normally recommended to look to the know-how and experience of a professional fireplace installer in Wednesbury, on account of the severe fire and health risk problems that can result from an improperly fitted or refurbished fireplace. According to the Building Regulations, a room with a fireplace must have adequate oxygen and airflow to allow the fire to burn safely. A build-up of toxic carbon monoxide gas can result in an area where there is not enough airflow, and death or serious injury is a risk when a fire is burning inefficiently.

To safely get over any problems with air flow, vents may be fitted in the room as part of a fireplace installation, to ensure suitable oxygen levels reach the fire. They may also have to fit vents in unused chimney flues which sometimes trap moist air and cause damp spots and staining to your chimney breast.

BEFORE WORK COMMENCES

It's astonishing just how much soot and muck can accumulate inside an old chimney and you won't know exactly what is there until you proceed to open it up. A fireplace installer will bring dust sheets to cover up your furniture and supply some form of protection, but it's wise where feasible to remove furniture and woven floor coverings from the area before work commences. If you're fortunate enough to be carrying out a full room renovation then it should be one of the first tasks to complete before you re-plaster or decorate the walls. This will help to avoid any harm by soot and other chimney dirt to any previously completed restoration work.

STRUCTURAL AND CONSTRUCTION WORK

The very first thing on your to-do list will be to contact a professional chimney sweep.
