Often, the first thing people think of to spruce up their home is to simply remove a wall…
But there are many things to consider when removing a wall, such as:
- What structural bearing does this wall have?
- Will I have to hire a structural engineer to certify the wall’s removal?
- Is the wall ‘load bearing’? And if so, how much?
- What will happen to the flooring and ceiling if I removed this wall?
Just a few questions to consider… and sometimes removing a wall is not always the best or cheapest renovation decision to make.
