LEANING CHIMNEY

It’s time for the major “home cleaning spree” of the season. Top-to-bottom, inside and out. You finally make your way towards the outside portion of the chimney to tackle those cobwebs, built up dust and moss and you notice your chimney is slightly tilting. With further investigation, there are cracks starting to form at the base of the chimney. What does this mean?

A leaning chimney is a sign that there is a structural problem with the foundation of the home. When a chimney tilts or leans, it can become unstable and fall on your home. If you notice your chimney slightly tilting, inspect the rest of your home and the foundation. Be on the lookout for cracks in your walls, floors, ceiling, foundation slab and garage columns. Bowing and leaning walls in your basement can also be an indication of a weakened foundation.

Our professionals at Foundation King of Oregon can give you a proper assessment of the job that is at hand. Give us a call today to schedule your appointment!
