Converting a flame-effect gas fire

The Guardian, Saturday 14 November 2009

Can we convert our flame-effect gas fire to a proper fireplace?

“If you have a flueless gas fire, there is no option to convert,” says DIY expert Julian Cassell, “but if you have a working chimney, you may be in luck. Have the flue checked by a professional – try the National Association of Chimney Engineers. Expect to pay £150-200 a metre to reline a chimney, and £200-300 for backfilling or hearth building if required.”
