How to Find a Fireplace Specialist

Finding a fireplace specialist

Use Plentific to compare competitive prices for the best local fireplace specialists. Fireplace specialists are qualified professionals who are skilled in the installation, repairs and servicing of fireplaces and fireplace brickwork. Their work can also extend to other service maintenance tasks within their specialism. These include AGA/stove installation, gas safety checks, chimney reconstruction and chimney or flue design.

By hiring a specialist, rather than a tradesman who offers fireplace maintenance/installation as part of his services, you are also gaining expert advice during the project. A specialist can also assist you in the event that you have purchased an off-the-shelf fireplace and require it to be fitted seamlessly into your existing home structure.

What do you need to think about when hiring a fireplace specialist?

When hiring a fireplace specialist, you must go beyond a personal recommendation as this is not confirmation of their experience or qualifications. When initially engaging with fireplace specialists, you want to ask them for proof of their accreditation.

Use Plentific to search for fireplace specialists in your area and, once you are liaising with them, request to see their registration with either the GMC, NACS, NACE or HETAS. The GMC is the Guild of Master Craftsmen, where it is ensured that all members are skilled professionals engaged in a trade or craft in order to safeguard the interests of the public and ensure they receive a premium service from recommended tradesmen.

The Heating Equipment Testing and Approval Scheme registers qualified professionals that carry out installation of dry appliances, hot water and heating systems. They measure their members on an ongoing basis and demand they follow a strict code of conduct.

The National Association of Chimney Engineers registers qualified professionals that carry out all types of chimney work. They measure their members on an ongoing basis and demand they follow a strict code of conduct.

The National Association of Chimney Sweeps is an association that offers education and expertise regarding installation and maintenance of chimneys, appliances and flue systems.

An experienced professional should be able to provide all of this information. If they cannot, or are hesitant to do so, it would be wise to continue your search.

What does a fireplace specialists do?

A fireplace specialist will carry out the construction and installation of fireplaces, the supply of materials, design of the chimney and flue systems. They would also be responsible for the construction and relining of chimneys, installation of wood burning, brick, biofuel and inglenook fireplaces.

You could also hire a fireplace specialist to install your AGA, gas or cassette stove. In the event that you don’t have a chimney, some local fireplace specialists offer a service whereby they install modern twin wall systems to allow you to put a stove anywhere. This can also lessen your energy bills as they run through your home and provide additional heat.

How much does a fireplace specialist cost?

The terms of a fireplace specialists invoice varies from business to business. For example, some fireplace specialists charge for a consultation, whereby they have spent time visiting the property and assessing the space. Others only charge for their installation/fitting service.

Use Plentific to compare prices for the best local fireplace specialists in your area. Plentific recommends that you speak to at least three local fireplace specialists to receive quotes in order to find the best professional for your home services.

I have a gas fire at the moment and I am planning to buy a coal effect fire, with a hearth and a fireplace. I need the gas fire to be removed, and the new fire installed. I was wondering how much time this will take and how much it should cost. I have had quote which I think is too high. Please let me know what further information you require to give me a quote.

We have bought a new property and would like to gather quotes about chimney maintenance and the installation of a wood-burning stove to establish if we can afford to do this at this stage. The works would entail chimney maintenance works, the removal of an apparently redundant metal flue in the rear party stack and the removal/installation of a fireplace or fireplaces in the ground floor reception rooms. We would also like quotes for different, area-compliant wood-burning stoves.

Concierge notes on behalf of customer: customer is looking to instal a new fireplace and will need the chimney swept first.

Daren F.

We have an existing gas fire that we would like replaced with a wood burning stove, specifically a 4kw Beaumont Chesney in Ivory. We would like a hearth of granite or green slate cut to replace the existing hearth which has an oak floor cut to fit already. We already have a chimney with a clay liner. We don't need a fireplace surround just yet but just the wall around the fireplace will need to be made good after the removal of the existing gas appliance.

Having had a positive experience with EPS in August with my garden I hired them again last month to help upgrade my bathroom which is over 35 years old! EPS were extremely helpful in providing alternatives & advising me every step of the way. I am absolutely delighted with the quality of the tiling especially given the complexity of working with mosaics in a small bathroom. The bathroom looks stunning now & the quality of the work was impeccable. I highly recommend Nadeem & his team.

hired evolve for a number of tasks which included stripping out the entire property and removal of wallpaper and skimming walls and ceilings then painting. The team also installed solid wood flooring, replaced the existing staircase and supplied and fitted a new kitchen. Work took 6 weeks and i was happy with the progress. i was told from the beginning of all the challenges that construction entailed and each time there were changes i was updated.

I have used MTX for 2 jobs - to build garden patio and to install new flooring at Shepherds Bush Cricket Club We have found them to be a very professional outfit who are great to deal with, reasonably priced and do a fantastic job. The care and attention that they have displayed throughout both jobs was excellent and left both sites in a spotless condition after every day's work. The head office staff are also very accommodating and helpful - willing to assist/support whenever asked! I would highly recommend them to anyone for a large job or even a small job Pawel, Ben, Rebecca and the team are great!
