In 1979, Wendell took his knowledge of fire safety, his work experience, and a few fellow firefighters and created Cornerstone Chimneys. “W.

Next Generation

Glen Pendleton

Glen Pendleton was among the first group of firefighters Wendell asked to join him in his new business venture. Glen had been on the Cornerstone Chimneys team for 25 years when Wendell retired and passed the torch down to him.
"Talking with Glen you can tell he is an amazing person and I will definitely use them for as long as they are in business and I have a chimney. They are what you hope for in a company, great people all around!"

Veteran Family, John + Kathy

After his time serving in the Marine Corps, John and his family moved to Tulsa and found a safe welcoming environment to raise their kids. John and Kathy have called Tulsa home for the past 14 years.
"They were pleasant and professional and explained what they were doing as they went along. They said if I have questions to call them anytime."
