What Is An Exclusive Listing?
When we walk through a property with a client and they say ‘Can this wall be removed’, we always say yes. Because it’s true. Any wall can be removed if it is carrying the weight or load of anything above it. You can transfer that load to a different place using posts and/or beams.
The more appropriate question should be ‘What will it cost and what will be involved in removing this wall?’ From a contracting perspective, the actual installation of posts and beams can be the fastest and least expensive part of wall removal. What becomes the tricky and expensive part is when you start looking at the costs to do so.
Removing walls can almost always be done. The price and the headaches relating to it are the parts in the process that need to be discerned as soon as possible. You don’t want the place coming down on your head, and you don’t want to get in over your head.
