Structural Opening and Chimney Removal: Costs and logistics
Open plan living is becoming increasingly popular, and it is undeniably a great way to add a light, airy feel to existing smaller rooms. However, knocking through a wall is much more that taking a big hammer to it! There are structural implications to be considered. Don’t be tempted to use a DIY builder for wall and chimney removals; it is undoubtedly a false investment, which could leave you with a structurally unsound home.
We are not oracles but our years of experience in building and structural repairs mean that we are able to foresee most potential pitfalls and make allowances for them in our initial quote with regard to both time and cost.
Structural openings and chimney removal prices can vary from job to job. Example: the starting price for the removal of a wall between a front room and dining room could be completed for as little as £850.00 plus VAT. Chimney removals can start from £1,450.00 plus VAT. These depend on the structural calculations and finishes to the works.
As general builders, we carry out all types of structural alterations as some of these pictures show you. Whether you want a through lounge, walls taken out to gain access to new extensions or single doors turned into double doors, we can help. We can also remove chimney breasts and carry out all associated works to make the job complete.
Due to the high demand of skilled local builders to take on both residential and commercial building maintenance services and projects, London and Kent Construction restricts the areas in which it works. As a result we only take on clients in the areas of South East London (SE2-28), Dartford (DA1-18), Tunbridge Wells (TN1-40) and Bromley (BR1-8).
