Damage caused by natural calamities

Though they are less common, natural calamities like an earthquake, typhoon, cyclone and lighting strike can cause great damage to a concrete chimney, damaging the structure of the chimney. In some cases, the chimney may collapse, and in other cases, the chimney may develop large cracks in the concrete.

As climbing the chimney is risky, and most home owners do not have the necessary skills, expertise, tools and safety equipment to do so, it is highly recommended that the home or building owner hires the services of a firm specializing in concrete chimney repair to inspect the chimney, to assess the damage to the chimney and complete the necessary repairs
