    How straightforward is it to remove a chimney breast if chimney stack already removed


    Am trying to ascertain how difficult and rough idea of cost to remove a chimney breast. The chimney stack, which was on a flat roof, has already been removed and new roof laid. The room in question is directly below this flat roof. There are two flats below, one on first floor and the other on the ground floor - we are on the top.

    "Its fairly easy to remove but for cost depends on different factors like access and making good if just one level to be removed the cost would be around £1500.

    "Hi Esther.
    Without seeing the job it is difficult to advise. But, removing the chimney stack from the top down should be straightforward. The spoil / debris will need to be removed and this can be awkward in a confined roof space.
    In lower rooms it will be more straightforward but there will be some making good to the walls and ceilings around it.
    I would estimate around £ 600 per floor.
    Good luck.

    "Good evening,

    To start off removing your chimney breast you first need to make sure that both lower flats are closed off from the flu. Then try to see if the flat roof is in anyway resting on the chimney."

    "This should be (without looking) a fairly straight forward job and would cost around £750."
