Do You Have a Leaning Chimney? Southwest Marietta, GA
Chimney before and after repair by Anglin's Foundation & Masonry Repairs

Masonry chimneys contain thousands of pounds of brick and mortar that provide an escape for smoke and soot from indoor fireplaces. These structures can last for decades when built correctly, but there are situations where they can become unstable. A leaning chimney is a sign of structural instability, which can lead to serious damage to the house or surrounding structures. At Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repair, we provide advanced repairs for leaning chimneys in the greater Atlanta, GA area.

Chimneys Leaning Into the Roof

Chimney before and after repair by Anglin's Foundation & Masonry RepairsIf you have a chimney that is leaning toward the roof, this is usually due to what is supporting the chimney structure. These chimneys are often built on non-support walls in the house’s interior, resulting in a dangerously unstable structure. Many of these chimneys rely on the roofing and rafters for support, which is not adequate to keep the immense weight stable.

Repairing a chimney that is leaning toward the roof requires adding the necessary supports to stabilize the structure. Once the supports are in place, it can prevent further damage to the chimney, roof and surrounding house structure.

Chimneys Leaning Outward

When a chimney leans or pulls away from the house, this is a very bad sign. The chimney is at risk of complete demolition if it leans too far away from the house or structure. If a chimney is pulling away from the structure, it is often due to erosion or sinking at the chimney’s foundation into soft soil. The further it leans, the more the foundation will sink into soft soil due to the uneven weight.

Repairing a chimney that is leaning outward requires extensive masonry experience. Not only does support need to be added to ensure the stability of the chimney, the foundation may need to be repaired or stabilized. Anglin’s uses our custom-built resistance piers to stabilize chimneys that are pulling away from the house or structure.

Leaning chimneys are an extreme hazard to your home, family and property. If you have a chimney that is leaning in toward the roof or pulling away from the structure, contact us at Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repair. We can perform a thorough chimney inspection and recommend the best way to stabilize your chimney to protect your home or building.

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.
