Fireplace Fitter Yeadon West Yorkshire (LS19): A good way to add a bit of charm to any Yeadon home is by installing a brand new fireplace, or restoring an existing one. Cold winters' evenings can become a joy as you sit back beside your fireplace surrounded by the crackling of a burning fire, and if your fire is combined with a back boiler you can even benefit from free hot water too.
Before you go prising away at a blocked up chimney there are some things you will need to consider to make sure you can safely install your new fireplace. Any combustible appliance installed within domestic homes in Yeadon must conform to Part J of the UK's Building Regs, and this covers flue linings, chimney breasts, fireplaces and hearths. Planning permission may also have to be sought before work commences if your property is in a conservation area or is listed.
PROFESSIONAL OR DIY FIREPLACE INSTALLATION?
You might be able to do some of the restoration work on an existing fireplace if you have the ability to do so, but safety and structural issues are often discovered that need to be resolved by a professional tradesman. You may be fortunate when you uncover the old fireplace and find out you need little more than a thorough clean up of the hearth and a chimney sweep in order to get your fire roaring once more. What is more typical however is an area of crumbling brickwork that conceals a blocked flue, and also requires some degree of structural modification before it can be used safely.
Due to the severe health and fire risk issues that can result from a poorly fitted or restored fireplace, it is best to avail yourself of the experience and knowledge of a competent fireplace fitter in Yeadon. There always has to be a decent air flow into a room where a fireplace is installed to ensure sufficient quantities of oxygen enable the fire to burn effectively. If the airflow is not sufficient then it is possible that a fire will not burn efficiently and cause a build-up of carbon monoxide, which can be lethal.
To overcome this issue a professional fireplace installation team will evaluate the circumstances and fit vents around the room, or beneath the flooring, to ensure an adequate amount of air flow for the fire to burn safely and effectively. To avoid condensed air becoming trapped in unused chimney flues and causing damp spots and staining, vents may have to be installed by the fireplace installation team to enhance the airflow.
BEFORE WORK STARTS
Opening up an old fireplace can cause a lot of of soot and muck to enter your house. Even with covers and other dust protection for your home furnishings, the chance of impairment from soot and dust is still possible and it's advisable to remove your carpets and furniture before any fireplace renovation work commences. If you're carrying out a full restoration of a house or room, the fireplace should be opened up before any plastering or decorating is dealt with. This avoids any discolouring damage to any renovated work you've already finished.
STRUCTURAL & CONSTRUCTION WORK
With the fireplace revealed, it is time to see what is in a fit state to be renovated and to give the chimney and hearth a good clean. You now need to contact your chimney sweep, if you've not already done this, to come and look at the old fireplace and chimney. A chimney sweep will first clean the flue and while doing this will be able to inspect the condition of the chimney and offer you guidance on whether a new flue liner is needed.
Following a chimney sweep's examination it may be necessary to install a new liner and/or strengthen the chimney breast as laid down in Part J of the UK Building Regulations. A competent fireplace installer and builder in Yeadon will be required to perform this task, and will have the knowledge and skills in construction to closely follow all regulations.
If you need to change the width of opening of your original fireplace to something more suitable for your new design, a supporting lintel must be put in. When this has been done the next phase for your fireplace installation in Yeadon will be to update the hearth. You might discover that the original hearth has been sunken into a void in the floor, however to be in accordance with current building regulations it must be raised above floor level. You can get bespoke solutions to fit pretty much any size and design of fireplace, or you can choose from a range of common size and shape hearths to match your decor.
STYLE OF FIREPLACE
A quick browse online or a visit to a fireplace showroom will illustrate the options that are available for the different styles and types of fireplaces. The advice and recommendations from your fireplace installers, which will hinge on your specific requirements, will help you to choose a fireplace that's both suitable for your flue and chimney, as well as for your decor.
Whether you opt for an open fireplace, a wood burner or a multi-fuel stove will depend on the all round look you are trying to establish, your existing decor and perhaps even, the age of your home. For example, an attractive inglenook fireplace can be an ideal backdrop for an old-fashioned cast iron wood-burner stove, which highlights its charm and deflects the heat into the room.
Even if you haven't got a pre-existing chimney in your Yeadon property, it's still entirely possible to put in a multi-fuel or wood burning stove. A pre-existing chimney isn't required because a stainless steel flue is fitted to the top or rear of the stove and channeled through an outside wall.
