Removing Stack Up Through Dormer

Recommended Posts

Semi-detached bungalow built in 1960. Has a rear dormer extension. There's an unused chimney stack comes up about 2/3 of the way along the dormer. This for the old fireplace and at one time solid fuel boiler. Now a modern gas boiler with the flue to the rear of the property through a downstairs wall.


I think the stack goes up through the flat dormer roof. (Photo angle makes it look like the ceiling is sloped, it's not).




The question is is this likely to be structural as in could it come out and the roof be patched?

I removed one of these a few years ago with no problem, just check no ceiling joists are joined on the stack when it’s removed, if so then sister them. 👍
