Tearing down a wall is a bigger deal than you thought? As you all know excitement is a wonderful emotion but what if that emotion turns into horror soon after you give that sledgehammer its first swing! Fresh DIY design projects can be fun but not its not everyones cup of tea. And, contrary to what may seem obvious to some people, a hammer is not a tool fit for a king or queen.
Think your wall is just a piece of panelling with some wood inside it? Think again.
THIS IS A WARNING, of what to expect if you decide to go that tedious DIY route. The Demolition skill of bringing down wooden walls inside your home is to be left to the pros. But if you still want to adventure yourself, make sure you get a city permit and an expert’s opinion before you start sledging away like a mighty God.
The number one concern you should have before a teardown is: Make sure that it’s a non-structural wall; you don’t want to bring down your house.
Don’t Tear Down a Load-bearing Wall
Before you start demolishing walls, make sure it isn’t a structural support of your house. A simple safety measure is by going down to the basement to see if there are any supports or beams under the wall. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this – call an expert.
