Chimneys are vulnerable to environmental elements, and eventually may result in a chimney removal.
Although it is easy to think of chimney removal in terms of only the chimney stack that sits on top the roof, you must bear in mind that the cost will also include the cost of removing the chimney breast. Make sure that your budget always includes the cost of removing the chimney breast and rectifying the resulting space. As this area is likely to be situated in your living room, make sure the amount you budget is sufficient to get it to a high quality standard. If you plan to do the job yourself, the total cost of it can be estimated by examining the materials used for the existing fixtures such as roof beams and drywall, and measuring how much of each material you will need.
Remember that chimney removal does not automatically mean that the chimney breast must also be removed. Not only will breast removal result in a hole in your roof, but a complete removal will also leave a hole in your floor. If you are not inclined to undertake the repair work required or if like the design of the chimney but never use the fireplace, the chimney breast can be left in place. This method will limit the amount of repair work required to the roof and will reduce the need for support beams. It will also allow some variety in respect of how the fireplace opening is dealt with; for example, the existing arch can be maintained or the entire gap can be blocked off with drywall.
Don’t assume that you do not require a specific permit for chimney removal because you are taking away an aspect of your property rather than adding one. Depending on the zoning area in which your property is located and the status of your home, you may require specific permission from the local authority in order to undertake the work. The work will also have to comply with building regulations to ensure that structural damage to the property does not result. If one is necessary, make sure you get a permit issued before you start the work.
