In this video we update a open fire in Smethwick, Birmingham. We start by opening up the fireplace back to its builders opening. Once the fireplace is opened we insert a new concrete lintel to support the chimney. The hearth is then installed which in this particular video is black limestone with a square edge.
After that the chimney is lined with a Midtherm Midflex 904L liner and pot hanging bird guard cowl. The customer chose 904 as he planned to run the stove on a lot of smokeless fuel. The 904 is better for this situation. The fireplace is boarded with a suitable fireboard that provides a smooth paintable surface. The plaster is made good and the fireplace is connected and commissioned. A HETAS certificate is issued upon completion.
*Stove – Woodwarm, Phoenix Firegem 5kW
