This requires removal of center post, which is a structural element. So there are the following requirements:
- This must be done by a licensed general contractor, who we can refer
- A building permit
- A beam that is strong enough to support the entire span. This must be spec’d by an engineer.
Prices vary for this type of work based on many factors, including:
- Siding material (brick vs. vinyl), etc.
- Foundation situation (center portion of foundation must be removed)
- Electrical work
- House setup (eg. is opening on a gable end?)
