Removing the cast-insert with the existing mantelpiece remaining in place, reduces the cost of installing a new stove.
The original character and charm remain whilst one of the cleanest burning eco-stoves replaces the old, inefficient open fireplace.
We cut out the inner of the fireplace, protect the front hearth and build up the inner base (where the stove sits).
Reusing the existing mantelpiece and front hearth, means there are no additional costs with replacing them or any redecorating costs.
Finally, we dress the inner of the mantel with 3 pieces of slate know as ‘slips and header’. The slips and header also serve the purpose of protecting the wooden mantelpiece from the heat of your new stove.
Up-cycling, keeping costs down and working towards a greener, cleaner planet.
