Why Are We The Best?

Gallows brackets are often used for supporting the chimney above a removed breast. Typically they have fitted either side of the loft stack with a length of steel to prevent bricks from dropping. It can often be hidden within the loft space.

With loft conversions or other larger projects, simple brackets may not be able to provide the needed support. In these cases, steel beams can be used to replace the load-bearing materials.

We install all necessary chimney breast supports with our steel beam installation service and provide all making good internally for a fixed price quotation.

With loft conversions or other larger projects, simple brackets may not be able to provide the needed support. In these cases, steel beams can be used to replace the load-bearing materials.

In some occasions, your chimney may not be constructed on the party wall, be aware they are a different structure to other chimneys. Whilst you will still share a chimney stack, it will connect at ground level and not the loft space.

If you have a semi-detached property you need to ensure the chimney is yours to remove or come to an agreement with your neighbour. there There are a number of building regulations you need to be aware of.

Our professional tradesmen have scaffolding in place to ensure we can perform the job safely at height.

Work Required For Stack Removal

  • Scaffolding up and around the chimney stack
  • Taking out the cement flaunching, cowls/pots
  • Carefully taking bricks out one-by-one and lowering them down to the ground
  • Fitting a new layer of roofing felt, timbers and tiles.
