ACR Oakdale Stove installed in Marple
During the course of our work as a Stockport based installer of woodburning and multifuel stoves we completed installation of an ACR Oakdale 5KW cast iron multifuel DEFRA approved stove with a Black Limestone hearth and the customer's own cast iron fire surround on Church Lane in Marple. The work included creation of new chamber to utlise an existing unused chimney.
Stove: 5 KW ACR ‘Oakdale’ cast iron multi fuel DEFRA stove.
Surround: Cast iron customer provided.
Hearth: Black Limestone in sections.
Customer: Mrs P of Church Lane, Marple.
The Marple stove installation:
The customer wanted a fireplace chamber made in the hallway of her large bungalow. Although there was no chimney breast in the hallway, we noticed that there was a chimney pot and discovered that there was a disused bedroom fireplace that had been plastered over to the rear of where the customer wanted the hall fireplace.
A Chamber was created using the bedroom opening and the chimney swept and a new liner installed. A brick rear fascia Chamber was installed at the rear of the chamber and the sides were rendered. For the hearth, we used black Limestone. A cast iron surround already owned by the customer finished off the installation.
The customer was very pleased with the finish and has commented that the fireplace looks as though it has always been there.
