Chimney Removals

Wellington, how prepared are YOU for the overdue “big one”?

Villa Services provide the following earthquake-protection services:

  • Chimney demolition & removal
  • Earthquake risk assessments
  • Earthquake compliance
  • Earthquake strengthening

We were so lucky there weren’t more casualties in Christchurch but as our one is likely to be bigger, should we rely on just being lucky?

Your heavy or tall sideboards, fish tanks, bookshelves, water cylinders – Are they secure? Maybe you need help?

The coverage of the devastating Canterbury earthquakes showed how dangerous brick chimneys can be, with thousands of chimneys collapsing and damaging roofs or destroying ceilings, many of them ornate and irreplaceable.

Do you have a brick chimney, or do any of your rental properties?

Where will that chimney end up after a big earthquake?

Remove it and you could use that extra space for a lovely wardrobe, pantry (see interior photos), extra room space or even an ensuite.

We offer inspections to report on hazards in your home or office and will recommend remedies for you.
