Chattanooga TN Leaning Chimney Repair
Chimney Solutions of Chattanooga restores leaning chimneys in the Greater Chattanooga area along with Northwest Georgia from Rome GA to Rossville GA. Other communities in our service area include Collegedale TN, Walden TN, Rossville GA, and Ringgold GA.
A leaning chimney is a dangerous chimney. Throughout Chattanooga, we often find chimneys that are leaning to one degree or the other. Whatever the cause and whatever the extent, a leaning chimney must be addressed sooner rather than later.
Why Does a Chimney Lean?
There can be many reasons why a chimney becomes structurally unsound and begins to tilt. One common reason is damage to the chimney’s bricks and mortar.
Cracked or missing bricks along with deteriorated mortar joints can cause the entire chimney structure to lean. If neglected, this might result in a partial or complete chimney collapse.
Another reason for leaning chimneys in the Chattanooga area stems from the way the chimneys are constructed. When a chimney runs up the side of the house, it’s connected to parts of the roof. If the chimney has walls that sit with full weight atop the roof, it can wear on the roof’s decking.
As years pass, the roof may sag and cause the chimney to tilt in toward the house.
