I’m not sure how common these are in other parts of the country but we have thousands of them out here in my area.
These are precast (cast in place) concrete fireplace/chimney systems. Quite common in the 70's out here.
Conventional repair methods used for masonry chimneys cannot be used on these. Their biggest flaw is that they are an engineered, one piece system which requires an engineered repair and in most cases, cannot be repaired at all.
