Owner / Certified Chimney Sweep
With over 20 years of experience as a fireplace / chimney specialist, Lance is proficient in his field. His journey with fireplaces began in 1998 when he accepted a position as an installer for Ace Fireplace in Norcross, GA. However, Lance's knowledge with construction goes back much farther than that. His parents were award winning home builders in the Atlanta area since before he was born. Lance worked for his parents for much of his young life, starting around the age 8. By 11 he was operating a Bobcat loader for his parents to assist with the family business.
Lance is a CSIA certified chimney sweep and is currently working on obtaining several other nationally recognized certifications/accolades. He has garnered the respect from others in his industry for being one of the top specialists in his field. Lance's popularity really took off around 2015 when he began performing "Fireplace Makeovers." He brings a lifetime of knowledge to the table so that he can make revisions to older homes all while respecting current building safety codes. He is a stickler in doing things right or not at all. Lance is a well-respected craftsman, and treats each of his projects with the utmost care.
Lance provides top notch service for the fairest prices. No matter what, he makes sure to get the job done, and strives to satisfy our clients beyond their expectations.
