Many residents in Myers Park in downtown Charlotte and other Carolina neighborhoods live in older homes with a chimney that is beyond repair and want to avoid a structural collapse. Professional chimney removal may be your best option if that sounds like your situation. However, it’s a lot easier to build a chimney than to remove it, especially if it has severe damage and is attached to an older or historic home. So, you must ensure the company you hire has the skills and professional equipment to do it correctly.
Our highly experienced masonry specialists have the training and expertise to safely remove the entire chimney structure without damaging your home. Thus, giving you the option to rebuild a new chimney or repurpose the space. We proudly serve communities throughout the Metrolina region, including Cornelius, NC, Fort Mill, SC, and Locust, NC.
When Your Charlotte Chimney Needs Removal
A deteriorating chimney can be dangerous. As the stack becomes more unstable, it can collapse, resulting in significant property damage to your beautiful home. A lightning strike, tropical storm force winds, and heavy rain and hail may be all it takes to push it over the edge. A crumbling chimney can also be a health hazard. Our humid summer weather is the perfect storm for mold and mildew that can spread inside your home. It can also attract rodents and pests like mice, rats, ants, and cockroaches.
Here is a handy checklist that you can use as a guide to determine whether chimney removal is right for you:
- Your chimney is leaning.
- Several sections of missing or spalling bricks.
- Significant gaps in the mortar joints.
- Severe damage to the chimney crown and masonry.
- Extensive water damage.
- Foundation is sinking or damaged.
- You want to rebuild a new chimney.
- You are installing a new heating appliance that doesn’t require a chimney.
