At Lindemann Chimney Service in Northern Chicago and Southern Wisconsin we specialize in stopping leaks. Whether it is your chimney or your roof we can diagnose the situation and present you with solutions.
A chimney without a cap is like an open rain gauge but extra-sized. Think about this the next time you dump your rain gauge or check out the latest on www.weather.com. However, remember to take it to the next level. Instead of a 1″ rain, a 10″ X 10″ chimney opening is taking in 100″ (10 X 10 = 100). Where does this rain go?
If you have leaks around the chimmey, in the chimney, peeling wall paper, leaks in the attic, it could be the chimney. The cost of repairing the damage usually far outweighs the cost of the initial repair to prevent or solve the problem.
We have access to the largest chimney cap styles and options in the industry. If your chimney needs waterproofing – we can handle it. If the diagnosis is a leaking chimney flashing or chimney damage we can repair it. Even if we determine it’s your roof, we can refer you to a qualified professional if it is outside our scope.
When you choose our Lindemann Team, you are choosing a team of qualified, educated professionals that will care for your home just like we would our own. Thanks for doing business with us! To contact us, click here or call us at 847-739-4199.
