    Hi!

    I have a leaning chimney that ends in the attic. Home was built in 1900. Is this dangerous? If so, what options are available as far as bracing or removing it?

    Thank you!

    Welcome.

    A photo would help.
    What is the material the chimney is constructive of?
    Is there an abandoned fire place beneath?
