What do you need to know about chimney breast removal?

Chimney breast removal is not just a matter of knocking out the bricks. It is crucial that you have your home assessed as there are several potential complications. The breasts may be providing structural support and may be supporting joists. If you share the wall with a neighbour who still has a chimney, not only will you require planning permission but you will also have to consider seeking legal advice in accordance with the Party Wall Act. It tends to be older houses that contain chimney breasts, and so your walls may contain undisturbed asbestos. A surveyor or tradesman should be able to guide you through the necessary legal processes for having a chimney breast removed, though for matters such as party wall dispute you will need to seek a qualified legal advisor.

When you have your home assessed you should be given a quote, at which point be sure to ask for a breakdown. Collect multiple ones to compare before making a choice of which tradesmen to hire. Do not opt for cheap labour when it comes to chimney breast removal; you will want your quotes from qualified tradesmen with solid experience with jobs such as yours. Feel free to ask for evidence of their qualifications or their membership in any tradesmen’s associations. Be sure to look over reviews from their previous clients, and ensure that whoever you hire has adequate coverage against accidental damage and liabilities.
