    Frequently Asked Questions

    A load-bearing wall is a structural component of a building that carries and transfers the weight of the structure above it down to the foundation. Removing or modifying load-bearing walls requires careful consideration and often professional expertise to ensure the structural integrity of the building.

    Yes, but it’s crucial to consult with a qualified structural engineer or architect before doing so. Ontario’s building codes and regulations must be adhered to, and proper permits are required for such structural modifications. Elite Renovators can help you with the structural design, engineering, and permits all with peace of mind.

    Identifying load-bearing walls can be complex and is best left to professionals. However, certain indicators, such as the wall’s position relative to the rest of the structure, its size, the presence of other walls or columns above it, and the direction of floor joists, can provide clues. Contact us at for an estimate.

    Yes, you will need a permit from your local municipality before removing a load-bearing wall. This ensures that the work complies with Ontario’s building codes and regulations and that it is structurally sound. We handle all these details as part of the job, so that your wall removal is done right!

    The cost of removing a load-bearing wall can vary depending on factors such as the size of the wall, the complexity of the project, and whether any additional structural support is required. Contact us for an estimate before proceeding.

    The timeframe for removing a load-bearing wall can vary depending on the size and complexity of the project, as well as factors such as obtaining permits. For instance, in some cases permits can take 2-3 weeks, and the actual process/work to remove a wall takes roughly 1 week.

    It is highly discouraged to attempt DIY load-bearing wall removal. This type of project requires specialized knowledge, skills, and equipment to ensure the structural integrity and safety of the building.

    Our team works closely with qualified engineers to develop plans and calculations for the removal of load-bearing walls. We use high-strength engineered beams, such as laminated veneer lumber (LVL), to safely support the structure.
