Removal of old fire, fireplace, supply pipe & flue - Chimneys & Fireplaces job in Abingdon, Oxfordshire

Job description

Would you be able to carry out all or some of the following? Location is Shippon, Abingdon, Oxon. Ideally I need this doing in sometime before mid-May!

Removal of fire (already disconnected from gas supply), filling in access to old pre-cast flue. The fire is not inset, it simply butts against the wall containing the flue. Removal of surrounding fire-place surround. Making good the wall in preparation for eventual decoration. Removal of old gas supply pipe (also now disconnected), making good walls. At present this pipe feeds around our lounge both externally and internally, entering, leaving, and then entering again. Disconnection of metal part of flue at top of pre-cast brick section in attic. This leads to a roof vent, which I’d like advice on – can this be left as is, or does it require capping? I'm told that the top of the pre-cast brick section of the flue can then simply be packed with some vapour permeable material and that – as the flue has only been used for a clean gas fire – there will be no need to vent it at the bottom.

Tom was able to attend and quote very quickly after I submitted my job request. He was polite and professional, even explaining that some elements of my request were unnecessary. The work was completed as arranged - Tom even hoovering the room before leaving. Recommended!
