Chimney Sweep, Outdoor Kitchens & Masonry Repair | Chicago | Lindemann Chimney Service
A crew from Lindemann Chimney came to clean my gutters... They were professional and efficient. Spring 2018 was a record year for rainfall in Chicagoland. My gutters were clogged with sludge, seedlings and small trees. Before the gutter cleaning, rain was completely bypassing my gutters. After the cleaning, water passed through my gutters like Niagara Falls! The crew also addressed the need for a downspout 'elbow' for more efficient water flow from the top roof to the lower roof to the gutter. I am so impressed with the service, I am having another crew come next week for a chimney inspection and cleaning!read more

I am the second owner of my home. I became a widow after 23 years of marriage 18 years looking at my wood burning fireplace. Do you think I was going to use my wood burning fireplace dragging the wood from outside my garage? The answer is no. I found Lindemann Chimney Service on Angie's List and set up an appointment to discuss converting the fireplace to gas. First came my appointment with Lindemann working with Shawn Owens,got the gas lines installed (separate company) worked with Shawn with a 24in Designer Series Split Oak gas set with an 18 in Burner Pan. Logs come with a lifetime warranty against defects and the burner with a 10 year warranty. Also Shawn painted the new rear panel black once it was installed. Here is the payoff . .Remote control . .On/Off remote to light the fireplace. Amazing and incredible and would certainly recommend Lindemann if you are on the more

Lindemann was great to work with. The worked performed was delivered as promised. We had substantial damage to our chimney, cracked from foundation to the cap. Lindemann, repaired-replaced-retuckpointed-recapped our chimney. I do have one recommendation for improvement, in quoting this project. It seemed that we had to chase each of the masonry contractors for estimates. Would have liked to see a quicker turnaround and response, weekly turnaround would be sufficient. This process took three weeks to gather pricing from the three contractors whom more

Mike did a wonderful job explaining everything and converting our fireplace to a gas burning fireplace. We also had masonry work done on our chimney. All work was done on time and the crew did an excellent job of cleaning up the work more

We have had Lindemann add a stainless steel liner to our 1947 fireplace(last year) and could not be more happy. We were so impressed with folks who did it, very professional, talented and we we were very proud to have them in our house. We just had the chimney cleaned recently and would never call anyone else. The free firewood each year at time of cleaning is truly a special more

I've used Lindemann for a number of years. Initially for a chimney liner for my cracked tile chimney. The job they did was costly, but VERY well done. Since then I've used them for cleaning and other chimney repair which has always been well done. I strongly recommend Lindemann Chimney service for high quality, professionally done more

We’ve used Lindemann for the last several years. They continue to be extremely efficient and always leaves the room with the fireplace cleaner than when they first entered. The firewood is an incentive, but the workmanship is the more

Very pleased with service and quality of recent work. Technicians were respectful of my house...after they left, didn't know they were there! We found Barrett to be right on top of things (no pun intended!), and follow up was excellent. Beata, Sally and Donna also extremely helpful. All said, a great company to do business with! Will be using them for chimney cleaning as needed!!read more

I've had my chimney cleaned by Lindemann for years and have been extremely happy with their services. This time I even set up my appointment online, and they were quick to adjust to the time and day I needed. I have always been impressed with the service we receive. Joe Rudd was been our technician for the last two years now, and he is fast, efficient, clean and friendly. He even gave me some tips on how I could save money and reminded me of the free firewood offered by Lindemann. It's a great company - you can't go wrong with them! Great customer service!read more

We have been using Lindemann for over a decade. They have done normal cleaning as well as more complex and delicate work. I would not look to anyone else. I never feel they are trying to up sell or suggest additional work. I'm looking forward to many more years of working with more

Allen from Lindemann came out for a service call of our gas fireplace. Not only was he friendly and patient as I was running late for our scheduled time, he was thorough and educational throughout the appointment. He provided me with options to the problem and even agreed to check other fireplaces while he was here. Upon return to install the work decided he was neat and efficient with installation. We are thrilled with our fireplace and will ONLY call Allen from Lindemann in the future!read more

I cannot say enough about the employees of Lindemann Chimney. I had a problem with water condensation in my furnace and hot water heater flue, and the man who came at 2PM on a Saturday, only to give an estimate, worked until 9PM until the chimney was cleared of debris. Carbon monoxide had been building up and he wanted our family to be safe. Two more employees came back on the following Monday to finish the job, both putting in an additional 5 hours to re-route the piping. They were so polite, cleaned up exceptionally well. All for a very fair price. I highly recommend Lindemann more

Super fast, friendly & clean service. The technician was even great with my dog, who was MORE than interested in what he was doing. Always left with peace of mind after a visit. Love the 3 rounds of firewood that comes along with the service, as well. See you soon for my regular cleaning, Lindemann!read more

I hired Lindemann to inspect an odor coming through the chimney, they sent a camera up and noticed the flue tile joints were cracked and recommended replacing flue with stainless liner and they thought this would correct odor issue as tiles were glazed with creosote, so removing the tiles should remove the odor. Fast forward to the winter and a few fires later and unfortunately, the smell returned. It seems our house was too tight from some of the remodeling we had done and the house was trying to draw outside air in through the firebox, which I had suspected was a big part of the original problem.I expressed my frustration over the unresolved issue and they agreed to return to clean out firebox and smoke chamber and seal everything and install a gas log set at fair price, so unfortunately we had to switch from wood burning to gas, but now our fireplace is usable and the odor issue that plagued our home has been corrected. I give this company huge credit for standing behind their work and coming back out on several occasions to work towards finding the proper solution for our home. Big credit to Joe B. for his dedication and commitment to his work. He's an asset to the company. I would highly recommend Lindemann Chimney more

I needed a chimney liner and some exterior cracks repaired. Lindemann responded to my request for service very promptly. Once on sight their team was professional and very efficient, not to mention fearless, given that one of their workers had to ascend my very steep chimney and work on it at a very significant height. A good job was done quickly and at a reasonable more

From start to finish Lindemann as a company was a pleasure to work with! The first call made me certain that this was a straightforward company. When the technician arrived he was on-time, respectful of our home and a pleasure to speak with. He made clear what our options were and was adamant in regards to our safety. I will recommend Lindemann to all of our friend' more
