In this video, Hylton shows us a slightly different method to safeguard the remaining chimney in the loft: here, a 4 meter long steel beam was fitted from the spine wall to the external wall. This was done to the council’s satisfaction.
Two chimney breasts were removed, one in the downstairs dining room and one in the bedroom where the clients wanted to add space for fitted wardrobes along one wall. In addition, you’ll also see in the video that the clients had put dust sheets over some of the furniture.
Hylton Chimneys are specialists in chimney breast removal and structural wall removal but we also do all kinds of general building work required to complete the project. To contact us call 020 8346 2254 or complete the contact form below.
