Sherriff-Goslin Repairs a Chimney and Performs a Roof Replacement
Two years ago, Sherriff-Goslin performed a free roof inspection on a house that had a small chimney leak. The home was 13 years old and located in Gull Lake, Michigan. The initial roof inspection revealed a small leak caused by shingles that needed replacing and chimneys that needed to be rebuilt. The chimneys were made with artificial stone over a wood housing.
Looking at the damage to the chimneys, we were concerned that the leak had damaged the wood beneath the stone. We worried that simply replacing the shingles and flashing would not address the real issue. At that time, the customer only wanted to replace the shingles. Believing that a job should be done correctly and in a way that saves money in the long-term, Sherriff-Goslin refused the job until the customer agreed to address the chimneys.
Two years later, the customer contacted us again and agreed to the chimney repair. At that time, the home was 15 years old. After removing the stone, we discovered that the wood was rotted and would need to be rebuilt. A simple, 2-day roofing job became an 8-week job. In the end, the repair was done correctly and the homeowner can rest easy knowing that their roof – and their home – is protected.
At Sherriff-Goslin, we know that small leaks can turn into big problems. Our primary goal is to save our customers time, money, and heartache by fully – and accurately – diagnosing a problem before repairs are starter.
