Eric Lappnau founded what was to become Flintstones’ in 1969 when he moved to Vancouver Island from his native Denmark. Lappnau was a certified bricklayer who had experience building and restoring old-world buildings and homes. Lappnau quickly developed a reputation for his meticulous work and, as a result, had a large base of loyal customers.
In the mid-1990s, Lappnau recognized the entrepreneurial potential in 16-year-old Michael de Palma and took him under his wing. Mike quickly adopted Lappnau’s devotion to his customers and when Lappnau retired in 2007, Michael took over the company and renamed it as Flintstones.
Under Mike, Flintstones grew rapidly. In addition to continuing the traditional chimney and fireplace repair business, Michael expanded Flintstones scope of work to include interior and exterior home renovations, new home construction, outdoor living spaces, waterproofing and wood working. Today, Flintstones is even stronger with a professional partnership group comprised of a chartered accountant, estimator and experienced home builder.
