Chimneys & Fireplaces

Do i need a new hearth?

I have a late victorian fireplace in an upstairs bedroom that I'd like to use ( pending chimney sweep's approval). There appears to be the original concrete hearth, flush with floorboards under the carpet, but do i need to lay a new hearth over this even if it turns out to meet the depth requirements of 500mm? I'm assuming it prob won't be deep enough though, so in that case what is the cheapest and easiest option for bringing it up to reg? Can i tile over it, for example?

I would get a local Hetas installer Over instead of a chimney sweep. You’ll need a integrity test on the chimney and they will also advise you on the hesrth etc
