A chimney that is leaning and separating from your home is an indication that deeper issues are present. A leaning chimney is a common sign that your home is suffering from foundation or structural damage. Although not every situation is the same, a leaning chimney is a common sign that your home is suffering from some sort of foundation settlement and should be evaluated by a trained foundation repair contractor.

There are many reasons why a chimney may lean away from a house. While these causes vary, chimney separation should be taken seriously and an evaluation should be performed so the problem can be properly determined.

Causes of a leaning chimney include:

  • Shallow or inferior footings

  • Insufficient drainage or water management

  • Poorly compacted or inferior soils underneath the chimney
