Chimney Construction | Blair Home Inspection Services NJ
Here is something you don’t see every day when inspecting a home, but it is useful when talking about build & construction techniques. Most people do not realize that chimneys and houses are built independently of each other. This picture shows an 1800’s NJ home with 3 fireplaces that was destroyed by a recent hurricane/storm.
There is a cement mixer and construction vehicles in the foreground and the chimneys in the background of this picture. It shows new framing for a first floor being rebuilt around the original chimneys.
