The problem is that there are massive ducts running underneth the joists in the laundry room, straight across the middle of the ceiling and splicing off into all directions. This results in the headroom in this area being severely restricted. Since the original space was a lanudry room, I'm assuming not much thought was given to the original placement of the ducts.
The questions I have are:
1. How difficult is it to re-route this ductwork so that it is flatter, runs along the edges of the room and/or runs between the joists?
2. How difficult a job is this?
3. If I hire someone else to do it, how expensive of a job might it be?
4. Who would I call to get estimates on such a job?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
