Chimney Damage

Any thoughts on this cracking in a masonry chimney?
Thanks in advance.

N.F.P.A. Level 2 inspection recommended…

By the staining running from the cracks, I suspect there is a water leaking into the chimney from above. Did you get a look at the crown?

Crown was eroded with some cracking. No rain cap on one flue.

Imagine what happens to all that moisture from the Autumn rains when it freezes!

Yeppers… time for a chimney rebuild! Refer to a licensed and qualified Mason.
