Working well but currently still under development and new stoves are being added. For now, when selecting a stove it's probably best to leave the filters at All stoves, All fuels and All power outputs for best choice.

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.

Fire Chambers

Stove and fire chamber finish

Heat resistant render

The fire chamber surrounding your stove can be finished in a heat resistant mortar based render, usually a mix of cement, sand and lime, which gives the mix greater flexibility and heat resistance. This can be decorated in a water based emulsion paint.

The chamber should not be plastered in a normal skim finish "Thistle" type plaster which will crack and break down with heat.

Chamber linings

An impressive alternative is to line the chamber with bespoke chamber lining as shown. The lining is available in a number of designs and is only 35mm thick, so does not reduce the chamber size significantly.

Fire Chambers

This Red brick chamber lining is from the Capital range. A Rustic Herringbone version is shown in the examples below. See full range

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 (see above). 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.
