We've been in our house (built in 1982) for 10 years and have used the woodburning fireplace only a handful of times. it makes the room quite awkward and we'd be able to use the space much more effectively if the fireplace was removed.

What is the process for removing a wood-burning fireplace on an outside wall and what might it cost?

Hi There,

Our suggest to you is not to remove as it's a big project with a big cost involved. We are Brick Mason's here, and you will need to get in touch with a General Contractor to give you an Estimate.

If the Fireplace goes down to the basement. It will be a bigger project If Fireplace starts from outside it will be an easier project. You would be looking at Floor, Wall, Roof and Siding repairs.

Hope this answers your questions for now.
