The Structural Wall Removal Builders specialise in wall removals.
Sometimes known as load bearing wall removal, supporting wall removal or structural wall removal.
A structural or load-bearing wall is a wall that carries a significant portion of the weight of the building’s structure, from the roof and the upper floors down to the foundations. These walls keep your house standing, and careless removal of them would lead to severe structural damage, even collapse. It is possible to identify which walls are load-bearing, but it isn’t always easy to tell just by looking at them. Many people assume that if a wall is constructed with timber studs then it is non-load bearing, this is not always the case.
Look for walls above
Load-bearing walls usually have posts, supports, or other walls directly above it. The small knee walls that support the roof rafters are also usually located directly above load-bearing walls. Floor and ceiling joists that meet over the wall are also an indication of a load-bearing wall.
Look at the direction of your floor joists
The direction of floor joists can give an indication of whether a wall is load-bearing or not
