Dry stacked stone leaking air
Just inspected a home with a dry stacked stone fireplace. It had a masonry chimney and was about 8 years old. Very nice McMansion home. There was major drafting coming through the cracks of the stone chase inside the house. What do you think the problem is? It is a dry stacked stone chase inside and out. I think there is just gaps everywhere due to the way they built it trying to make it looked like there is no mortar. I recommended a more thorough inspection by a qualified mason.

The chimney looked fine, the surrounding decorative chase was stacked stone. It has mortar, but not very much. Gaps everywhere. I did end up recommending a level II.
