“Lindemann cleaned my home's chimney and performed additional work to address a heat transfer issue. They were professional and provided my with a full explanation of the work to be done. The work was performed on time and for the agreed amount with no mess.”

“Needed a new chimney liner before holidays and Lindemann's was able to schedule just in time. It was a snowy day and they still were able to get the job done! Made for a warm and happy holiday! Thank you, Lindemann's!”

“Great advice and service. Highly recommend. Pointed out builder flaws that could have resulted in severe chimney damage than what was.”

Review by
09/28/2017

“Was told my fireplace is 'unsafe to use' and the only way it could be used again was if I agree to all of the work on the $6,000 estimate. The basis for it being unusable was from a document citing a fireman's union from 2014 rather than local building codes.”

“Office needs to learn better communication with their customers. They were sending us bills for work not yet completed. In addition, they came out and did work without telling us they were coming. We weren't home, and did not realize they had been there. A simple flyer or invoice or whatever on the front door would have made the situation much better.”

“Their employees were very professional. They explained clearly what they were going to do, and they did exactly that. Or if they weren't going to do that, they came to us and explained that they bumped into something that was not expected and helped us make decisions about what we wanted done. They were on time, every time. They cleaned up well after themselves. They just did a very nice job. They were replacing the inside of our fireplace chimney. I would give them an A. I would recommend them.”

“They did a good job. They were thorough. They were on time. I got what I paid for, so a good value. I got gas logs installed. They did do gutter cleaning; they have done that twice. I would give them an A across the board. No issues.”

“Got a quote for additional chimney work that seemed expensive. No way for us to know if we really need the work done”

Review by

“The work performed on our chimney was very good, was not fully satisfied with the cleanliness of the area, there were broken bricks and excess mortar left behind in the yard and gardens. The cleanup should have been more thorough.”

“Lindemann was recommended to us by a very satisfied customer. We have been very pleased with both the rebuild of our chimney and the yearly cleanings. An unexpected bonus was that we get free firewood!”

“Didn't even look up the chimney flue before telling how bad condition it was and how dangerous it was. Got a second opinion and it was in fine condition. Just a practiced high-pressure sales pitch, a total scam. Very disappointing from a well-known area business.”

Review by
09/01/2016

“I spent thousands of dollars on this work. No one ever told me that they finished the work, then sent me a very strongly worded collection letter in no time flat. I was mortified as I pay my bills on time and have an excellent credit rating. A phone call or personal email stating that ‘we returned and finished the work on [date]’ would have eliminated the need to alienate a customer with that letter. Sorry but you lost me as a customer. The business seemed much more interested in brusquely demanding payment then spending any time to contact me to address any misunderstanding. I prefer to work with businesses that have a more professional approach to handling issues with customers rather than shooting out abrasive collection letters ASAP.”

“At the beginning, they seemed good and professional. However, during the work, they measured my 2 fireplace opening wrong for 3 times. So they are not able to install the screen and the panel. They finally got it right on their 4th trip, which is almost 2 months later. I was so shocked that they could get this simple thing wrong for 3 times. They even brought the wrong panel which was not my order. Their coordination is not good as well. I had a hard time to get the same person to take care of my issue(I have to talk to different person and repeat my issue again and again, finally I got one nice person who could take care of me). I am not confident with their work. I was very disappointed to their work to my new house. They used to be good.”

“Only thing I would say is that they push the chimney lining thing when that is not really always necessary. It is kind of the standard ‘sell’ and It is NOT really necessary in all cases. But the work they did for me was very good and the customer service excellent.”
