Chimney Lining

We offer a full chimney lining or chimney installation service. We will discuss your requirements and advise on the sort of chimney you may need whether it’s for a wood burner, multi-fuel stove or an open fire. We are happy to give you any advice you may need based on our knowledge and experience.

 

Stove Refurbishment

Fireplace Magic can service and clean your solid fuel stove annually, giving it a full health check and making sure it is working efficiently and safely ready for the winter season. We will advise you if any parts are damaged and need replacing and we will change the rope on doors if needed. Door seals are guaranteed for 12 months. We will also advise you on any change in current regulations, safety matters or suitability of fuel for burning.  We offer this service between March and September (or outside of these months subject to dates being available).

 

CCTV Chimney Inspections

If you suspect you have a problem with your chimney, a CCTV chimney survey is available. If you are prevented from using your chimney or are worried about the safety of a neglected or previously redundant chimney, we can visit the property and take video and photographs of any parts that we suspect may be causing, or are likely to cause problems.

 

We produce a report and supply any images appropriate to the issue. We are also able to offer you a quotation for any work that is required to bring your chimney back into working order, giving you peace of mind for many years to come.

 

Chimney Fans

Fireplace Magic is a sales and service agent for Exodraft chimney fans. These fans are used in problem or smoking chimneys and are installed and serviced by fully trained engineers.

 

 

Quotations and Site Surveys

We are able to offer an initial draft quotation for installation by e-mail on receipt of digital images of your fireplace but please note that these quotations are subject to a site survey to ensure that the fireplace selected and the work required has been assessed correctly. Site surveys are usually free of charge and are an opportunity for us to offer advice and answer any questions you may have about the installation.  If an initial draft quote has been prepared in advance of the site survey then it provides an excellent opportunity to discuss all items quoted for in detail in person.

 

Fireplace Installations

With over 20 years’ experience installing fires and fireplaces, we can offer an expert and professional service and are happy to install all of our solid fuel, gas or electric fireplaces.

 

 

 

As HETAS registered installers we provide a Certificate of Compliance with every installation of a solid fuel appliance.  This demonstrates that the installation complies with relevant Building Regulations and is used to notify your Local Building Control Department of the work that was undertaken.  This takes the place of a Local Authority Building Notice.  This certificate may be required to validate your home insurance and will be required in any home selling process.

 

We are happy to install fireplaces purchased from other sources, including original period fireplaces. Whilst we offer a full guarantee on our installation work, no similar guarantee is offered for any products not purchased from us because it may be of a lower quality than the fireplaces available from Fireplace Magic. Customers who purchase their fireplace from Fireplace Magic will be given priority when installation dates are offered.

Chimney Sweeping

HETAS advice is to have your chimney swept at least once a year if you are burning smokeless fuel and twice a year if burning logs or bituminous house coal.  This maintains a clear flue and prevents the build up of flammable tar and creosote, reducing the risk of a chimney fire.  Our chimney sweeps are proud to be members of the National Association of Chimney Sweeps and offer a professional, efficient service.
