I have a house that I’ve inspected on a pier and beam foundation. A tornado was close but the building was not damaged (there was no shifting of the foundation, no shingle creasing/tearing, all soffit/fascia is tight and the building columns and walls are plumb) the chimney brick above the roof line is not cracked, the chimney brick in the attic is not cracked. The chimney brick in the interior of the building is cracked in several places. Is there ANY WAY that the wind forces from the tornado could have caused the chimney to crack in the interior of the home? I can’t think of how but homeowner insists the tornado was the cause of the cracking.
