You can see why the owners of this lodge wanted to prevent any damage to this beautiful mantelpiece
You can see the gap between the chimney and the lodge itself from this angle
It doesn't take a foundation expert to see that this chimney has settled over time as the soil under the stone became unstable
This photo shows three piers along the outer edge of the chimney, there are also two piers on either of the short sides of the chimney
After straightening the chimney, our team removed the hydraulic system that drove the piers into the ground. This is a low-profile solution that will provide stability for the foreseeable future.
Compare this photo to the original from this angle. There is no longer a gap present & the inner, bright red brickwork that had shifted outside is not visible.
Our team had the pleasure of restoring a leaning chimney at a historic hot spring in Adams County. Over time, the chimney had begun to settle and lean away from the building. This not only caused a potential hazard to hot springs guests but also risked damaging a gorgeous fireplace in the lodge. Our specialist made the trip out to assess the damage and drew up a plan to straighten the chimney using push piers. Our installation team was thrilled with the results of this project as you can clearly see what a difference our products made.
