Fireplace industry bible. We have not had chance to study it yet but on flicking through it is very informative and hopefully we will be able to fit our chimney and log burner once we have read it. bought as a gift, recommended this book by a colleague, good reading, very useful resource, kept my husband quite for hours. I bought this book as I have an old solid fuel fireplace, and I was trying to decide what to do with it I was disappointed as I was hoping for practical information, such as how to finish a wall around a fireplace, how to open our a fireplace, or what to use to line an opening that houses a stove It would have been nice to have information about fire board, vermiculite board, lime render and so on, but such details are absent The book has a brief overview of the types of fire, which is information that is readily available online, and then an awful lot of information on chimneys flues, and how to build them, including the various regulations Perhaps a better title would be All You Ever Wanted to Know About Chimneys But Were Afraid to Ask If you are building a chimney, or restoring reinstating an existing chimney, and you already know all about morter, render, brickwork etc then this book might be of use to you But if you want practical information, such as the heat resistance of plaster it will blow and or crack at temperatures of 50 Celcius and above , or what kind of render to use, then look elsewhere.
