Chimney Repair for Tilting or Leaning Chimneys

Atlantic Foundation and Repair can repair your tilting or leaning chimney by using our patented helical piers on the outside corners of your chimney. These helical piers are installed by drilling into the ground until reaching firmer, more stable soil. The load of the heavy chimney is then transferred to these helical piers that now provide the necessary support, thus preventing future settlement. In addition, the helical piers can be used to raise the chimney back to its original position flush with the house.

The chimney foundation is often not part of the house foundation. When the soil underneath the chimney foundation is insufficient to support the weight, the chimney may begin to settle or sink. As this happens, the chimney may separate from the house and tilt or lean outward. Signs that your chimney is not adequately supported include the presence of the following:

  • Gaps where the chimney meets the house walls
  • Gaps between the chimney and house walls that have been filled with mortar or caulk
  • Cracks in the chimney mortar joints
  • Roof flashing that has pulled away from the chimney
  • Roof leaks in the attic at the chimney

These issues will likely only worsen over time requiring further repairs in addition to the chimney repair.
