Chimneys & Fireplaces Question
Re-instating a chimney after removal
How do I / can I reinstate a chimney after it has been removed from the roof after a loft conversion? The chimney breast is apparent through the house. No chimney on roof. Attic conversion.
Can it be done and is it expensive?
It can either be re-built in brick / block / stone back up through the roofline with new flashings etc, or you could look into the possibility of using a twin wall insulated system to replace the bits that have been taken down. Twin wall is not cheap but will probably work out cheaper than a full rebuild.
