Justin lays inside this over-sized cap to show its vast size.
The over-sized cap now installed to cover three chimney flues.
A masonry chimney crown severely damaged due to mother nature and age. The cracks in the crown will allow water to leak into the chimney flue and down to the firebox. The moss needs to be removed so that repairs can be completed on the crown. The roof shingle covering the second flue is not safe and thus the two flues should be covered with an over-sized chimney cap. Many of the mortar joints are in need of repair.

The inside of this firebox is severely cracked and needs to be repaired. These cracks are too vast to simply fill. The back wall will have to be entirely replaced.
This is the result of a dryer vent being cleaned. The lint pulled from this dryer line is highly flammable. Had this dryer vent not been cleaned, the heat output from the dryer could have ignited this lint and caused a fire.
A dryer vent pipe, in the home's crawl space, that has been improperly repaired and installed.
