cracks appearing from vibrations?

Postby gavilan » Sat Sep 02, 2017 2:16 pm

I am thinking to knock out a bedroom window (110 cm square) and replace with Franch doors (110 x 190) opening onto a small balcony ... but I am worried that the reverberations/vibrations from knocking out the brickwork will cause cracks to appear in other parts of the house ... or maybe it would cause less damage to the work brick by brick? ... any comments/advise gratefully received ...

I would cut around inside and out with an angle grinder , will be dusty but then the brickwork should come away without to much effort and would also make it easier to make good the opening after the french doors have been installed .
