Foundation settlement can affect other structures including your chimney. Learn about this problem sign and how we can fix it.

Chimney separating from home showing foundation issues

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. These include helical piers and push piers that are installed down to more stable soil under the foundation. For more information, contact our office to schedule a FREE evaluation consultation.
