What Causes A Leaning Chimney?

While your first instinct may be to think your chimney was poorly constructed, that may not be the case at all. A leaning chimney is often a sign of a sinking or settling foundation resulting from a number of other problems. Some of these common foundation problems that lead to a leaning chimney include the following:

  • Expanding and contracting soil leaving gaps
  • Soil erosion caused by excessive moisture
  • No proper waterproofing system in place
  • Settling foundation

In addition to foundation problems, there may also be issues with the chimney construction. Whatever the cause, the team at Kelley Construction will uncover it. We are experts in inspecting leaning chimneys and all types of foundation issues. Contact us today for foundation repairs throughout the Peoria, IL metro and surrounding areas.
