Leaning Chimney on a House Marietta GA

Our company has repaired hundreds, if not thousands, of tilting, falling and leaning chimneys throughout the Atlanta area. With over 90 years of experience, we have the expert knowledge of various construction methods and masonry skills to properly complete structural chimney repair projects. Our chimney repair and chimney restoration experts can get almost any chimney to once again be straight, properly aligned against your home or building, and eliminate immediate threats of your chimney falling.

Leaning, Tilting and Falling Chimneys Are Dangerous

Some chimneys in Atlanta are metal pipes surrounded by wood framing and enclosed with siding, and others are true masonry chimneys made with brick or natural stone. Masonry chimneys, whether brick or stone, require a solid footing on which to rest. When the footing or chimney foundation sinks or tilts it causes the chimney itself to follow. A chimney foundation that is sinking may cause only a small crack at the base of the footing. The angle degree of tilting telegraphs upwards, meaning that a small crack at the foundation level may result in the upper part of a leaning chimney being six inches to a foot away from your home. In this case, the massive weight of the leaning chimney is now exerting tremendous force on the footing and causing it to continually lean further away. If you fail to hire someone to do professional chimney foundation work and repairs to the cracked or loose bricks or stones, you can lose your entire chimney. Additionally, a falling chimney can kill people or pets and damage any items where it may fall. Your insurance company may work with you on a homeowners claim to fix the problem before the chimney falls and requires expensive restoration or replacement costs.

There are always special needs for total chimney restoration. Obviously the structural support aspects such as concrete foundations or piers, and above ground framing must be repaired. Once the chimney’s position has been made truly straight (plumb and square) you may need cosmetic repairs to brick work, stone work or stucco masonry cladding. Our company employs expert brick and stone masons which are very skilled in all types of masonry chimney repairs. Brick chimney repair and stone chimney repair work typically includes replacing any missing bricks or rock, filling in cracks in mortar joints and doing minor caulking where the brick or stone attaches to primary walls.

Your Atlanta Chimney Repair Contractor

In order to mitigate the dangers of a leaning chimney, and prevent it from falling, the entire chimney must be inspected to identify not only the root cause of the tilting but also to identify masonry damage that needs to be repaired. Chimney repair work focusing on the support footing or concrete foundation will correct the leaning or tilting problems. Your chimney may also need new tie-backs or mortar repair to secure loose bricks or stone in order to prevent them from falling off of the chimney framing. Our company is very experienced in all aspects of chimney foundation repair, straightening leaning chimneys, and restoration services for brick chimney repair and stone chimney repair. We are a single source provider for any type of work needed to repair masonry chimneys in Atlanta, Georgia. We offer free chimney inspections and free quotes on the cost to repair chimney problems.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
