Fireplace Installation

You will require a Fireplace Installation Permit if you are installing a gas or a solid fuel (wood stove or wood burning) fireplace. For gas fireplaces, you will also require a Gas Permit for connecting it to the natural gas source. Only a licensed contractor can obtain a gas permit.

For a gas fireplace installation, you will need one Safety Code inspection during the course of your fireplace installation:

  1. A final inspection prior to concealing; framing and venting must be installed

For a solid fuel fireplace installation, you will need two Safety Code inspections during the course of your fireplace installation:

  1. A rough-in inspection before prior to concealing
  2. A final inspection when installation is complete

You will be required to correct all deficiencies. Re-inspection fees or other penalties may apply.
