New contemporary stove installed and a twin wall insulated stainless steel chimney built.

An empty corner where the new contemporary stove and glass hearth will be fitted

Have you ever wondered what to do in an empty corner of your sitting room. There was no focal point in this room and sitting around a radiator really is not the same as sitting around a woodburning stove. With a woodburner you save money on oil too!

Fotheringhay Woodburners installers open up the ceiling for a new twin wall system chimney

It has begun, we're preparing the ceiling for the installation of the new black twin wall insulated stainless steel chimney system which will serve our Jotul F163 woodburning stove.

In the loft things look a little more interesting. Some carpentry will be required before installation of the ceiling plate which will form the main support for the new twin wall flue system.

New stainless steel twin wall insulated chimney will come through the roof here

Outside we need to build our scaffold tower to prepare the roof for the new stainless steel chimney system. Quite a lot of roof tiles need to be taken off so we'd best not hang around!

Roof tiles removed and roof being prepared by Fotheringhay Woodburners HETAS engineers

The roof tiles are off and the installation engineers have started preparing for the flue system to be installed. Any loose battens or badly installed tiles around the area we are working on will be repaired.

Roof opened up and carpentry finished ready for the new twin wall chimney

The external work is complete and our attention has moved to the internal alterations. A chamber is created for the ceiling plate with additional support timbers fitted.

Fotheringhay Woodburners engineers now have the stainless steel chimney system through the roof

The first section of the new stainless steel chimney is supported and through the roof. It will be left in stainless steel finish outside but will be painted black inside to match the new Jotul woodburner.

Mesh protection installed around twin wall insulated chimney system inside loft space

In the loft everything is back in place. The insulation has been replaced around the new protective cage. The cage prevents any of the insulation or items stored in the loft from touching the metal case of the chimney and presenting a fire risk. You can just see the ventilated ceiling support plate.

Installation of lead slate and roof tiles refitted by Fotheringhay Woodburner engineers

Outside things are looking good too with the lead slate in place and all the roof tiles back on. They needed to be cut to fit neatly around the stainless steel chimney and mortared along the edges to stop the rain from getting in.

New stainless steel chimney system now installed by Fotheringhay Woodburners HETAS engineers

Outside the scaffold tower has been dismantled and the new stainless steel chimney system and roof work is complete. A cowl has been fitted on top of the chimney and guy wires with special brackets made in Fotheringhay Woodburners' workshop have been used to provide support to stop the chimney from moving too much in windy weather.

Commissioning of the new woodburner by Fotheringhay Woodburners HETAS installer

The stove is now installed and is undergoing final commissioning and handover. We are in the process of explaining to our clients how to use the stove and advising on future maintenance as part of our process of handing a new stove over.
