Chimney fallen after a wind storm

It was extremely windy in this area recently. These photos show what can happen to a manufactured chimney which is improperly installed.  This chimney had only one wall support screwed to vinyl siding.  There was no offset support or roof braces securing it to the house. This particular chimney services the oil furnace in this home. Therefore, this family has no heat until it is replaced.

Check your chimney in order to prevent this from happening to you.  Don’t let a damaged chimney leave you in the cold.
