We want to remove a wall that separates our kitchen and family. We do not believe it is a load-bearing wall. We also want to have some electrical work done and were wondering how much it would cost to remove the wall and have electrical work done.

Firstly are you going to be finishing the drywall or is this to be included in the job quote?

How big is the wall height and length?

How many electrical outlets both sides of the wall in question?

And are the floors going to have to be matched or you doing new food?

I would say if its a 8' x 14' wall patch and flat celling and move electrical you would be looking at around the $1800 to 2200, really depending on the electrical. Really hard with out seeing it. You could aways post some pictures if you can.

The specs on your reno project is just to vague to be able to price this accurately. So, if everything goes ez, start at 2500$ assuming the ceiling needs to be fixed and floor repair where wall is situated.

All depends on how much work would be involved. For your situation we could say roughly $2000!

To remove a non-loadbearing wall:

Factors to consider: -how to tie in and re-finish the ceiling and the floor.

-are there any cold air returns or heating ducts travelling vertically through this wall?

-any wires, switches and outlets, thermostat, etc.

If the wall contains one or all of these items, price will vary to remove the wall.
