Martin did a fantastic job opening our fireplaces up. Really making our house a home. Unknowing of the scale of the job, Martin approached it with open eyes and got the job done. Left the place tidy and organised for the rubble and waste to be removed. Whilst he was here he scoped out other jobs around the flat and providing quotes. Will use again.

This depends on what your priorities are, whether aesthetics, heat, efficiency, or convenience. Wood heaters offer great heating efficiency compared to the alternatives, while a wood fireplace is a classic look, and gas/electric are generally low-maintenance options.

Yes. If you’re installing a wood fireplace or wood heater, you’ll need a chimney installed as part of the service. Make sure you confirm this with your technician when you book.

Yes. Gas and electric fireplaces don’t require chimneys as they don’t produce smoke.

While fireplace or wood heater installations in Australia need to comply with Australian Standard AS/NAS 2918, the service is unregulated. So your fireplace installer does not need to have any qualifications in installing fireplaces, although they may have completed a unit of study (Install domestic solid fuel burning appliances) if they’re a qualified plumber.

Fireplace installations can take as little as 4 hours for an electric fireplace up to one week for a wood fireplace installation.

What does fireplace installation include?

Fireplace installations include help with any of the steps involved in setting up your fireplace, from choosing your heater to installing your chimney. And fireplace repairs include all sorts of tasks, like fixing a tile, unblocking your chimney, and repairing a door hinge. The exact inclusions will depend on the type of fireplace or heater you choose, but the most common ones are:

Wood fireplace installation

Fireplaces are built into your home’s structure, so the process of installing or repairing a wood fireplace or chimney is often quite involved. Your technician will build around your fireplace unit, using timber, plasterboard, stone, bricks, and other materials to form the structure. They’ll set up a suitable chimney system based on the airflow and thermal dynamics in your building. They’ll tightly seal this to prevent smoke from coming back inside your home.

Wood heater installation

Your installer will start by positioning your hearth (usually made from brick, ceramic tile, or concrete) to provide a firm, safe base for your wood heater. Next, they’ll install your unit, connecting the flues (inside and outside, on your roof) to carry the smoke outside of your home.

Gas fireplace installation

Once you’ve chosen the best gas fireplace for your space (whether against a wall, built-in, freestanding or inside your existing fireplace structure), your installer will help organise gas. If you don’t already have gas service to your place, they’ll arrange the connection or gas bottle delivery. Next, your fireplace installer will assemble all the parts, including the unit and flues. They’ll cut holes to place the flues through the ceiling and roof, ensuring all gaps are tightly sealed to prevent leaks and damage. Then they’ll connect up your gas and test your newly installed fireplace.

Electric fireplace installation

Your electric fireplace installer will start by plugging in and testing the fireplace to make sure it works. Then they’ll cut a wall opening to fit your fireplace. Next, they’ll connect up the power supply (you may need a licensed electrician for this step). Then it’s time to lift the fireplace unit into the wall opening before securing it into the wall studs with screws. Finally, they’ll install any decorations (like logs) that come with your fireplace and install the front glass panel.

Secure mirror above fireplace


Belsize Park, Greater London

24th Oct 2023

I need someone to help me secure a mirror (119cm width, 116cm height, not heavy) above a fireplace. The mirror will rest on the fireplace mantel for stability, so it will just need two hooks screwed into the wall to hold the 'loops' on either side of the back of the mirror. I think the steps are (but please feel free to suggest a different method!): (A) scan the areas on wall above fireplace with a detector to ensure no live wires/pipes before drilling (B)drill into wall and insert Super Grips (I have these), then screw the two hooks (also have these) into place. (C) lift mirror onto fireplace and ensure grips are holding the loops securely. I have already measured and marked in pencil where I think the two hooks should go but please check it's right too. I can help with lifting mirror. We have a sturdy step ladder. Thank you! - Due date: Before Saturday, 28 October 2023

Really great work - Alex was clear about timing , did a great job and showed me how to use the tools so I'd know how to do it myself.
