Brick Chimney Builders - Essex and London

As traditional chimney builders Scarlett Fireplaces prefer to build or reinstate safe working chimneys that blend with the specific character of your property. Traditional British chimneys were once charming pieces of architecture at the heart of property design. How many of us, as children, have drawn houses without a brick chimney? Compared to stainless steel chimney systems and rendered pumice chimney systems; a brick chimney will add character to your home. We use modern pumice chimney systems integrated with traditional British building methods that will far out live any stainless steel chimney system.

It is important to understand the correct chimney flue liner for its intended use (a 'chimney' is the brick structure that encloses the ‘flue liner’). The flue liners are jointed with a special fire resisting compound and the void around the flue liner is filled using a special insulating lightweight concrete mix. If the intended stove is known before the chimney is built, then the relevant diameter liners should be used to suit that appliance (wood stoves usually require 150mm internal diameter).

There is a science to how a chimney works, always ensure any builder or heating engineer you employ fully understands this as there are many myths regarding brick chimney construction. One myth is that a chimney should have bends in it. In reality the perfect chimney will be as straight as the property layout will allow. Any bend will act as resistance to a good flow of gasses.

If your builder requires advice, we offer site visits to train the bricklayers during the construction.
