Chimney Lining installers

Chimney Liner Installers

Scarlett Fireplaces are suppliers and installers of chimney flue liners, each flue liner installation is designed, sized and graded to suit the fireplace and chimney layout.

We have been installing chimney liners in Essex since 1991 and our tried and tested flue liner installation methods are proven to last a lifetime. Using our own cherry picker, scaffolding and working at height techniques, we safely access hard to reach chimneys while relining old flues, without detriment to the roof and chimney structure.

Our unique experience as chimney liner fitters compliments the high level of quality that our chimney flue products demand and ensures long-lasting safe operation of your fireplace, as should be expected in the 21st Century.

The soft clay bricks used in the original chimney construction and the age of many of our local houses in Essex require a high standard of flue liner installation. Always remember deciding not to reline your chimney or to reline the chimney incorrectly is putting the occupiers or neighbours at risk of fume inhalation or a house fire.

English building regulations for 'chimneys serving solid fuel appliances' state that the correct chimney flue lining must be used for the intended fireplace appliance and it must be fitted and commissioned by a competent HETAS or OFTEC registered chimney lining installer or council building control approval must be obtained. All chimney flue liner installations must be certified and registered with your local council.

Flue liners installed for wood stoves should be insulated. The main aim of insulating a chimney flue installation, especially serving a log burner, is to ensure the unburned gasses (smoke) from the appliance reaches outside without cooling and condensing on the way, creating a sticky tar build up. Relining a chimney properly enhances the efficiency of your chosen fire, gives you peace of mind and allows us to sleep at night.

Contact us for site visits and advice for relining all types of chimneys in Essex. Whether stainless steel liners for large Inglenook chimneys or flue liners for thatched roofs, as specialist chimney lining installers, we've got it covered, ensuring the best long lasting solution for chimneys serving wood burning stoves.

The Chimney Liner Installation Specialists

Most old brick chimneys in Essex were constructed after 1850. They were built for small open fires and the internal flue size was usually 225mm x 225mm (9 x 9 inch, one brick) square. The largest stainless steel flexible liner we can fit into a typical chimney as a 'standard' chimney reline has a 175mm internal diameter. Larger concrete/pumice flues can be added but with structural disturbance to the chimney. In some cases, due to your existing chimney being undersized or badly built, a unique method of chimney liner installation will be governed by the age and style of the property.

Not installing a chimney liner properly is now common practice for chimney liner installers in Essex, many choose to take advantage of grey areas in the building regulations and use it to cheapen the process, to produce an installation that will last only a few years. At Scarlett Fireplaces, we design chimney liner installations to remain safe to use for decades to come.
