About the service
There are several factors to consider when removing a chimney which can determine the requirements for steel calculations. Below are some of the examples of the different options.
Completely removing the chimney
From top to bottom a full chimney removal usually does not require any calculations, timber joists will be required to infill the old chimney location and patching within the roof will also be required.
Chimney removal on one floor
If you are just looking to remove the chimney on the ground floor to create more usable space then a steel beam will be required to take the weight of the chimney stack above.
Chimney removal on both floors
If you would like to remove the chimney on the ground and first floor then a Gallow bracket will be required within the loft, the benefit of a Gallow bracket is its reasonably cheap to install and doesn’t require removing the chimney from the roof which will incur further costs.
