Chimney Stabilization and Support by Cantsink Provides Fireside Security in Winter Weather

Metro Atlanta families love to gather around a cozy fire in the living room or den during the cold winter months.

But those happy memories can be marred by an unstable chimney. A chimney that leans, cracks or separates from the house poses a danger of serious structural damage if left unaddressed and chimney stabilization in question.

In addition to its unsightly appearance, the cracks and separation created by a failing chimney allow moisture to seep into a home’s interior spaces. An unstable chimney creates roof leaks. Water intrusion into walls from chimney separation can lead to rot in structural beams and struts. Chimney deterioration also can damage the chimney lining and affect overall chimney stabilization.

Mortar loss from a crumbling chimney creates openings. These openings offer opportunities for pests to enter the home’s interior spaces. Escaping sparks that can escape through cracks in liners and lost mortar between bricks pose a fire hazard. Left unaddressed, an unstable chimney ultimately will collapse, requiring expensive repairs.
