What do you need to know about fireplace installation or repair?
Installing a fireplace is a large undertaking, and there is a lot of variation when it comes to the costs involved. The first thing to remember is that prep work may be required. Does a gas line need to be installed? What is the cost of assembly and customisation? Is there adequate ventilation? If it is an electric fire will your current wiring support it? Do your research on the types and models open to you, and take the time to have your situation assessed as a professional will be able to give you valuable advice. There will also be finishing touches to consider after the installation itself, such as plastering and painting. Only considering the installation costs, having a non-chimney gas model fireplace can cost around £600, an electric fireplace around £700 and a larger bespoke model around £2500. How much you should be willing to pay should depend on whether you need a fireplace out of necessity or if you are thinking about the aesthetic charm it will bring to your room. Remember that prices will also vary based on your location in the UK. The costs of having a fireplace repaired very much depend on the problems at hand. For serious damage you may need to have your fireplace removed completely, which is another cost. Due to the variance in quotes it is important that you get as many quotes as possible.
Remember to check the qualifications and experience of your tradesmen before having your fireplace installed or repaired. Do they work mainly with the same type of fireplace as you are having installed? Are they qualified as an electrician or plumber? Also be sure that they are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
