Signs of a Damaged Chimney
One of the most obvious signs of a damaged chimney is visible deterioration in the brickwork. Cracks, chips, or crumbling bricks can indicate structural issues that need to be addressed. Additionally, if you notice loose or missing mortar joints, this is another sign of damage that should not be ignored.
Leaning chimneys are another red flag that your chimney is in need of repair. If you notice your chimney is no longer standing upright and appears to be leaning to one side, this can be a sign of underlying foundation issues or structural damage.
