Norman Hargreaves - Log Burner
Customer: Norman Hargreaves
Address: Weaverham, Northwich
Norman came to us wanting a multi-fuel stove fitting but
he was in a smoke controlled area and had no chimney or
hearth. After our initial survey we told him he would have
to have a Defra approved stove fitted as they can be installed
in a smoke controlled area and we could use an external
twin wall flue. Norman liked the idea and a couple of weeks
later we started the installation. First we cut out an 840mm/840mm
square out of his laminate floor for the slate hearth to
be laid then drilled a hole through his wall so we could
install a 135 degree twin wall T to go from the top of his
stove to connect to the flue outside. The hearth was then
laid and the stove placed on top and connected to the flue.
We then bricked up around the flue and fitted a finishing
plate externally to the property and made good inside ready
for Norman to plaster and paint his wall. The black twin
wall flue was then installed externally to the top of his
roof standing 600mm above the apex, finished with a rain
cap on top and a soot collector with drain on the bottom.
The stove was then commissioned and signed off with building
control and a certificate was issued a couple of weeks later.
Norman was more than pleased with the installation and to
his surprise really liked the black external flue system
as he was not keen on the idea initially.
