The Installation Process

Chosen Your Fire?

Once a fire and surround is settled on and the fire ordered, a date for the installation is arranged. If a inset fire is replacing a hearth and surround, the installers can install a replacement length of skirting board which the customer is asked to order and Pick up and can be fit as part of the installation.

A Typical Fire Installation

On the day of the installation (most fires only take a day to fit), you can be present or just leave the fitters to complete the installation while you carry on about your day. Dust sheets are laid before any work is started and access to the gas stopcock and or electric distribution board will be required. During the dismantling of the old fireplace (which can be disposed of or left for the owner to sell), any gas lines or power cables are properly terminated to the latest standard.

The utmost care is given to avoid damaging any existing, decor, furnishings, walls and other items. Great care is taken in removing the debris and transporting the new fire to its intended location. External flues can be installed, or extra internal flues installed with suitable false chimneys.

Finishing off the installation, is another area in which we excel. With the fire installed and connected to its flue/vent/gas supply and or electric power, the task of making good is the next phase of the operation, but only if the fire is fully functional and safe. Any last minute hitches are resolved (relatively few occur) and the new surround is sealed and any walls are plastered to a fine finish.

A light sanding before any decorating by the owner is probably necessary after the plaster has dried, which usually takes a few days.
