Advice on Identifying Load Bearing Wall in bathroom Who to Call for Advice

Postby diydonut99 » Sun Apr 24, 2016 11:23 am

Hi Folks
Newly first poster so be gentle!

I'm looking at renovating my bathroom and it has a brick built cupboard in the corner which i would like to remove as the bathroom is small. I think at one time it had the hot water tank in it but no longer as we have a combi.

My house is a late 60s early 70s split level on a hill so the house looks like a bungalow from the front

The bathroom is at the front on the ground floor with small loft area and roof above. The cupboard door opens onto the hall not the bathroom.

I have been into the loft and the walls of the cupboard stop and ceiling height.

I wouldn't have a clue if they are load bearing so what kind of tradesman would i have to call to confirm if it is or isn't?
