Chimney removal and remodelling of room spaces. - Restoration & Refurbishment job in Manchester, Lancashire

Job description

  • Chimney removal

Customer description

I would like the chimney removed from the house. It is situated in the middle of the house and is not part of either a gable end or party wall. The stack rises through the lounge, up through the main bedroom then through the loft space out through the centre of the roof. I don't believe it is supporting any of the building structure but this will need to be checked. At the same time I want a hall cupboard space (the old hot water tank space) which is currently accessed from the upstairs landing integrated into the main bedroom. This space is next to the chimney on the first floor so will have to be removed as it is immediately adjacent to the stack. The job would entail removal of all the rubble and making good the walls and re-plastering. At the same time I also want to re-configure the entrance to the house. This will entail removing a short wall in the current entrance hall and building a new stud partition wall and doorway to create a larger entrance hall and separate ground floor snug. The current entrance is a small square about 5' x 5' which leads directly into the front room and has the stair access to the upper floor. This will also involve plastering and some electrical work to move a plug socket and light switch.


Feedback for East Manchester Builders

This is a family run business who all understand the value of customer care. Once we had agree a price, the quote was completed quickly and efficiently, I was informed when the work would begin and who would show up. The whole team were polite and friendly and professional. The job (chimney stack removal) was completed quickly and the team did everything to make the mess bearable. We then moved on to the next phase building a new stud wall and finishing off. I'm over the moon with the results and the cost. I also got them to replace a flat roof at the front of the house with a new pitched roof. It looks great and again the team were always reliable and professional. I've already recommended them to my neighbour and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Thanks lads.
