Chimney leaning away from home

Chimney leaning away from the home could be indicating settlement. Sometimes chimneys are built on a foundation that is not connected to the rest of the home, making it even more at risk of settlement. Occasionally, as the home experiences settlement, the chimney will also start leaning away from the home. 

Poor soils and changing weather can expand, shrink, and shift the earth supporting your home. This results in unstable and lessening of solis beneath your home and it begins to settle. 

One of the tell-tale indicators of settlement can appear as a chimney tipping away or separating from the home. 

If you have noticed this and the gap between the chimney and house, watch for it growing. Ignoring signs of settlement could cause the issue to get worse, and more expensive to fix.
