Its that time of year again to get your chimneys swept, book now to beat the busiest period before christmas to ensure a lovely safe roaring fire on christmas day. We sweep chimneys throughout Kent, Sussex and surrey, chimneys should be swept a minimum of once a year to remove all flammable debris and to ensure a nice safe fire.
This Wood Burner Installation started with the rip out of all the old stone, once this was complete we were able to take the measurements for the hearth. The second visit was to lay the premium black granite hearth and line the chimney, ready for the brick slips to be added to the chimney breast. And then lastly we made a third visit to install the stove and wooden beam.
Please be aware that any installations should be carried out by someone that is HETAS certified, as you can see from the photo someone has installed the liner the wrong way up. This will lead to a chimney fire and a breakdown of your liner in no time at all.
If the liner is the wrong way up, it means the soot can build up quickly and has no where to go when it is swept.
If you are unsure about your installation, please contact us for some free and friendly advise on 0800 086 9697 we will be happy to help.
This installation was designed to suit an old victorian fireplace with the original red enamel tiles, the woodturner is an Aspect 5, a lot of customers like this wood burner because it is a single large door that shows a lot of flame. It has original brick work, and some old rusty angle either side to blend in with the look. The larger flue pipe is insulated because of the existing beam that was already in situ.
This Wood Burner installation in Rochester was a large project from start to finish, a new flue was installed because there was no existing chimney. We also built a new chimney breast out of a metal stud work and fire proof plaster, after the chimney breast was complete we tiled the inside of the chamber with beveled white tiles, with cosmic grey grout. Once the chamber was complete we then installed the grey hearth and wood burner. The final touch was to get the carpet re cut to fit around the hearth just after the plastering and painting was completed.
