I have a water leaking, dropping inside fireplace during a strong rain. It drops down inside the chimney.
2 people with one ladder came; they caulked some chimney joints and some small holes on the roof above the chimney. They told chimney and its rain cap is OK and no issues. They took $150 to go up to the roof.
But my chimney continues leaking as it was before. It looks they did not examine the chimney, carefully enough, and did not found the rout cause of the dropping water.
