New cement cap on a damaged chimney plus soundness test

Chimneys become damaged over time and can become dangerous if not maintained. This house had a very deteriorated chimney cap and only used one of the 4. While our good friend Jim Chim-in-ey was sweeping he noticed the danger and gave us a call. We  put a new cement cap on top, with air bricks, and re rendered the weakened parts followed by  a soundness test, to check the condition of the whole chimney after woods (which it passed!)
