Fireplaces modified

If you have an existing fireplace it may be possible to transform it to accommodate a stove, open fire or a gas or electric replacement. See some of the examples below that we’ve carried out recently.

Kent Classic

An interesting job we completed in East Kent last year. The old brick fireplace was removed ready for a wood stove installation.

Because the fire chamber wasn’t deep enough, the inner skin of brickwork was removed and a new outer skin built on the outside to maintain cavity wall protection.

The fire chamber and chimney breast were then plastered, and a new granite hearth with a classic stone surround and mantel were installed. Finally a Purevision traditional style wood burning stove was supplied and installed.

Plain & SImple

The old fireplace and surround removed, the fire opening modified and plastered, a new hearth and a contemporary style Stovax Vogue Midi wood burning stove installed with a flexible liner into the existing chimney.

Double-sided Fireplace and Stove

There was an existing fireplace with chimney on one side but the customer wanted something to serve both rooms. The existing fireplace was broken through to the other side and a Portway 2 double-sided stove installed.

Classic Stone Surrounds and Mantels

These classic stone mantels are from the Capital range. One of our main suppliers.

Here are three examples where we have modified the chimney breasts and fireplaces to accept stoves and open fires. These could equally have been prepared for gas or electric-powered open fires and stoves.

No Fireplace? No Chimney? No Problem!

This was an outside wall on a modern house but with no chimney. A stone hearth was built and a chimney breast created with block-work and a herringbone brickwork lining. A concrete lintel faced with a real oak bressummer beam was fitted and the chimney breast continued to ceiling level.

The wall was then plastered and finished and the stovepipe connected to a twin-wall chimney system which passed through the wall and up the outside of the building. The stove pipe can be in black but this adds to the cost.

We remove, modify, repair, supply and install fireplaces.
