Fireplace Installation in RG9
Posted 23 August 2013
Job Description:
We have a stone surround in place against a faux internal chimney breast (made of wood/stud wall). The chimney and original fireplace is hidden behind this against the wall exterior. Currently we have an electric fire in place easily removed and to one side of the faux breast lies a gas connection, both which we don't wish to use. We want to create an open fire. We assume to do this, we need to enlarge the hidden fireplace to match the size of the stone surround opening, then effectively build a brick box within the opening coming forward the full depth from exterior chimney to front of surround to protect the faux breast materials and not be a safety hazard and effectively produce an open fire, the flue also probably needs relining and all safety checks done/vent holes etc. The opening (width/height) of the surround depending on whether you utilise the internal stone wall elements that came with the mantel, is 2 or 3ft squared (allow for 3ft for this quote). The current distance to the rear of the fireplace from the front is just over 1ft, it could be up to 2ft when the exterior chimney is opened up.
