signs of settlement with chimney separating from home

One of the more scary and dramatic signs of settlement is the chimney separating away from the rest of the home. Sometimes chimneys are built on a separate foundation that is not connected with the rest of the home’s foundation, making even more at risk of settling. Summer is one of the best times to correct your chimney settlement; you don’t want to put your family’s safety at risk by using a settled chimney this winter.

Protect one of your biggest investments, your home. Tar Heel Basement Systems offers options to repair chimney settlement. For more information, or to schedule a FREE evaluation consultation, call our office.
