Charlotte Home Inspector Finds Chimney Problems

February 19th, 2013 · No Comments



Charlotte home inspector Chip Sprague was inspecting a home in Dilworth when he ran into a chimney with many problems.  First of all there is no chimney cap an rain cap.  This allows moisture to get down inside the chimney and cause spalling and weathering.  Chimneys need a a chimney cap and rain cap.  This was also causing damage to the wood framing around the chimney as well.  Home Inspection Carolina recommends having your chimney checked and cleaned regularly to insure safety.
