About Lakeview

Lakeview started in 2005 when owner, Jerry Wantaja, recognized an opportunity and began his entrepreneurial journey to be his own boss and fill a masonry market in the Duluth area. With this vision, he prepared for a small business that he would continue to run out of his home.

In 2009, a shift in services offered presented a broader offering to Lakeview’s clients.¬†Jerry began exploring relative opportunities in the industry and he became certified with the Chimney Sweep Institute of America (CSIA) as a chimney sweep. After Lakeview added chimney sweeping and inspecting to the services they offered, a new market need was realized, and Lakeview branched out to offer solutions for chimney problems discovered during the inspections.

Today, Lakeview offers: chimney inspections and sweeps; Class A chimney installation and repair; fireplace installation, repair, inserts, and servicing; wood and gas stove installation and servicing; dryer vent cleaning; and masonry work on fireplaces, chimneys, stone/brick veneers, and stone/brick posts.
