This as an example of our video inspections. We make sure that the homeowner can see it is their property and they can see the issues. This is an example of a chimney which was allowed to deteriorate and which has substantial cracking both inside and out. It can be repaired but the repairs are significant.
Due to the recent earthquakes in Southern California there have been reports of chimney damage. Some of which you might not be aware of. Here is a video of cracks inside a chimney. If you think you might have damage, get your chimney inspected now before winter comes and you can’t use it when you really need to!
