We maintain a commitment to our customers, ourselves and the communities in which we work to always act with fairness, integrity, and respect; placing the needs of people first.
We believe that trust is at the center of every relationship we build.

Nothing less than extraordinary. We don’t settle for it. Neither should you.

By way of our continued success, it is our goal to improve all aspects of the community we operate in – socially, environmentally and economically – making strides to create a better future.

Flintstones’ history goes back to 1969, when Eric Lappnau moved to Vancouver Island from his native Denmark. Lappnau was a certified bricklayer who had experience building and restoring old world buildings and homes. Here in Victoria, Lappnau quickly developed a reputation for meticulousness that set him apart from his peers, resulting in a large base of repeat customers.
In the mid-1990s, Lappnau recognized the entrepreneurial potential in a 16-year-old named Michael de Palma, and took him under his wing. Lappnau’s devotion to his customers rubbed off on Mike. In 2007, when Lappnau was ready to retire, Michael enthusiastically took over the reins, and changed the business name to Flintstones.
Under Mike, Flintstones grew rapidly. In addition to the traditional chimney and fireplace repair business, Michael has expanded to include home waterproofing, concrete construction and repair,restoration, and landscape design and building, services that capitalize on the company’s deep expertise in all aspects of drainage and weatherproofing.
