The installation of stoves and fireplaces and associated flue and chimney works (except where a new chimney is being constructed) are covered by Building Bye-Laws and the submission of an application to Planning covering these works is not required when purchasing and installing through VLJ as we are a HETAS registered company.
It is a legal requirement for all non registered installers to ensure that their customers apply to Planning and Environment's Building Control department before installing a stove or fireplace and or re-lining an existing chimney. This includes pellet stove installations.
Julie and Josh are both HETAS registered solid fuel and wood burning engineers and VLJ is an approved HETAS retail showroom.

Schiedel Isokern Chimneys
Schiedel Isokern products can be used for new chimneys and for the refurbishment of existing chimneys. The Isokern chimney systems provide a lightweight, easily installed and versatile chimney which can be used internally or externally. The systems are suitable for use with burning appliances in new and refurbished projects. They are ideal for Masonry, Timber Frame and Steel Frame construction. Isokern chimneys have been installed in Europe for over 60 years.
Pumice is a natural insulator. This is the unique property that separates pumice from all other chimney materials. The insulating properties of Pumice allow the flue gases in the chimney to quickly reach their optimum temperature enabling the heating appliance to reach its optimum performance shortly after lighting. It also keeps the chimney warmer longer as the heat output of the appliance decreases - once again aiding performance and reducing the likelihood of condensation and soot build-up.
