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?

Best Answer

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.
