Inglenook Chimney Restoration

Inglenook Chimney Restoration

Heritage Friendly Inglenook Chimney Repairs

Inglenook chimneys are commonly found in properties over 250 years old across Essex and Kent. The large flues were designed to move large amounts of fumes from large open fires that were used for heating and cooking. Scarlett Fireplaces have been sympathetically restoring Inglenook chimneys across Essex and Kent for over 27 years. 

Brick inglenook chimney structures are of an age whereby they require sympathetic restoration from time to time. We use original clay bricks laid with lime mortar to replicate the original builders intentions. Replacing original inglenook architectural features to bring these chimneys back to their original state is a very satisfying days work.

Old Age Technology

Inglenook chimney before restoration Inglenook chimney's are not just beautiful pieces of ancient architecture. The inglenook chimney originally replaced an older method of  venting smoke from a dwelling which consisted of just a hole in the roof. The inglenook not only ensured that any dangerous fumes from a wood fire were safely transported outside but also the clay bricks used in construction acted as thermal mass; retaining the heat from a fire that had died out hours before.
