This I hope is the correct place to ask this. I have an elderly family friend that has a frame home that was built in 1904. Over the past few months the chimney has started seperating itself from the house. They have had contractors come to take a look but so far all they are reccomending is to tear the existing chimney down and build a new one. This is not what they wanted to hear. Is there anything that can be done besides removing the existing chimney and fireplace?
