One of the most shocking and dramatic signs of settlement is a chimney separating away from the rest of the home. We will be able to assess the damage and identify the cause and extent of the problem. Because this is often one symptom of a potentially serious foundation issue, we recommend checking the rest of the house for problems as well.
At TerraFirma, we recommend stabilizing a tilting chimney with a helical pier system. These foundation piers include a helical blade that allows the piers to be driven (or "screwed") deep into the ground to stronger supporting soils.
Once driven into the ground, a bracket is attached to the helical pier and mounted on the footing of your chimney's foundation. Once installed, the helical pier can even be used to attempt to return your chimney to its original position.
At TerraFirma, we have expert solutions to all types of foundation problems, including damaged chimneys.
