Tilted Chimneys in Charleston

Does the chimney of your Charleston or Lexington home look less than straight? Have you noticed gaps between the bricks and the wall? Whether your chimney has a slight tilt or appears as if it may topple at any moment, it’s a good idea to have a professional foundation inspection contractor in Charleston and Lexington take a look. A tilted chimney is a symptom of serious foundation trouble that should be addressed quickly. Foundation issues that aren’t promptly addressed will lead to even more damage in the future, resulting in an increased cost of repairs. Also, damage to your chimney can lead to dangerous leaks or the risk of falling bricks.

If you have a tilted chimney, our Charleston and Lexington foundation inspection contractors will conduct a complete assessment of your home and your foundation. We will then make customized repair recommendations.   

What Causes Chimneys to Tilt?

Chimneys need to be built on a concrete pad for stability. If that pad starts sinking or cracking, your chimney will tilt. Damage to the underlying structure may occur for the following reasons:

  • Poor soil quality, resulting in the pad sinking or settling
  • An improperly sized concrete pad
  • Deterioration of the pad
  • Poor drainage, resulting in water that pools around the concrete pad

Additionally, chimneys are sometimes built without the necessary concrete pad. If you start seeing gaps between your wall and chimney, call the foundation repair experts at United Structural Systems. Our Charleston and Lexington foundation inspection contractors will conduct a thorough assessment of the damage and determine the root cause of your tilted chimney. We will then provide recommendations customized to the needs of your home.

  • We decided to hire them after we'd had another company out for the same quote. The first company gave us a lot of hot air and was very demeaning. Then Bobby and the USS guys came out! I can't say enough about how incredibly professional they were, how well

  • Bobby arrived as scheduled and conducted a thorough inspection of my basement. He did not try to oversell his products or services. In fact, he alerted me to more cost-effective and simpler solutions that did not require USS services at all.
