FireBug were commissioned to repair this old tiled fireplace in Guildford, Surrey. The original fireplace had a cast iron fireback and the hearth was in a very bad state of repair. First we removed the cast iron fireplace and backfill. To line the sides of the fireplace we built new brickwork to match the original brick work at the back of the fireplace. The hearth was taken back to the sub hearth level & new matching tiles were laid. The tiles are a hand glazed fireplace tile, made in the traditional way so they matched perfectly.
With a fireplace opening of this size the goto log burner is the Hobbit by Salamander stoves. FireBug can supply and fit Hobbit stoves and all the Salamander accessories. Although the Hobbit looks small, it still has a output of 4 Kw which is by no means to small for a room of this size.
Renovating this fireplace has give the customer a working and efficient appliance without having to take away one of the original features of the house.
