Surrounds

We strive to offer our customers a great deal of flexibility in terms of the desired finished look that can be achieved to your fireplace. Be it a clean plastered finish without a mantle, a bespoke metal frame, brick piers with an oak beam, stone or wooden surrounds, granite slips or a traditional brick fireplace.

The hearth options can be made of almost any non-combustible material. The most popular being sandstone, black granite (Polished, Honed or Brushed), brick, slate, tiles and glass.

Our vastly experienced surveyor will advise and liaise with you to achieve the finish that you require, that is also within keeping with the style of your property and the décor and furnishings of the room.

Whilst no two people will have exactly the same tastes in design, we endeavour to tailor your requirements to what can be achieved and with the most suitable design and finish for your property. This also applies to the choice of appliance, with both style and output to be considered for the completed look that you desire.

The internals of your fireplace is also extremely important in the design. Whilst the dimensions of the aperture can vary greatly, one of the most popular options is to line the opening with a heat resistant decorative board. This can be painted with a water based paint to either match the externals of the fireplace or an alternative colour to create a contrast.

If the design you require is of a more traditional look,we can construct a chamber using reclaimed bricks. Should the opening be restricted with depth and width, we can line the fireplace with a brick chamber, which at only 35mm thick, will maximise the size of the aperture.

Other options include a natural reeded board to give a textured finish, cement render or bricks of your choice.

Whilst there are many building regulations regarding the installation of a stove, one very important regulation, is the distance to combustible materials. In some applications we will use a Geocast resin, wood effect beam, instead of an oak beam above the stove to get around this.
