Need to have a 16ft cinder block wall removed - 8 ft high and have a W220x58 I beam put in to support the second floor. Footings are there.
So 2ea 3-1/2 posts $200 a W200x58 beam $580 given this is the cost of the product what can I expect the cost of removal, disposal and installation of this beam.
Looking for a ball park at this time - is a $4000 job or a 15,000 job?
If all you are doing is opening up the wall you would normally be looking about about 7,000-10,000 for a job of this scope; however, it is always best to have a company come in and look at your project. This will narrow down the price and give you a fair and accurate estimate.
First you need a structural engineer for the plans and beam size, because you have the wrong size beam. Assuming you meant W20 instead of W200 or 220, a W20 is 20 inchs tall which is way overkill and not $580. Most beams I have put in are W8 and W10 on spans of over 20 feet.
