Fireplace Installation

Fireplace Installation

We will carry out a survey to measure up you existing fireplace and check that the goods you have chosen are suitable. We may need to enlarge the opening size or reduce down the opening size and will estimate for the relevant works required. If you are having an open chamber fireplace we recommend a throated lintel is fitted which we will estimate to supply and install at the same time as the fireplace. If our chimney sweep has not already been to carry out a full survey of the flue we can do this at the same time as the fireplace survey. Our fireplace installer is fully HETAS trained.

Your installation will be carried out by the person who carried out your home survey so that they will be fully prepared for the work required. The installation will normally be completed in one day although sometimes a second day will be required. You will be advised of this when your survey is carried out or on your estimate. You will also have been advised of any furniture you are required to move and if you need to roll your carpet back from the fireplace.

Your installers will dust sheet your room and passages to protect your furnishings. Removing an old fireplace can be dusty but we will endeavour to keep any dust and disturbance to a minimum.

You will need to arrange making good and redecoration of the chimney breast by others.
