In this video, Hylton talks us through a client’s requirement to fit gallows brackets as chimney support in their loft. The chimney breasts on the ground floor and upper floor had been removed by the previous owners but the chimney stack had been left dangerously un supported.
We repaired this with a pair of robust steel gallows brackets. These are approved by all the councils as safe to support the remainder of the chimney. The gallows brackets are set into the party wall and support the weight of the remainder of the chimney.
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.
