Hubert’s Fireplaces have been keeping Ottawans toasty since 1922.
A family-run business spanning three generations, Hubert’s delivers fireplace services to families and businesses with personable and trusted care. Hubert’s has gas,wood and outdoor fireplaces as well as finishings to make your old or new fireplace stand out from the rest. With over 90 years of keeping Ottawa homes and offices cozy, Hubert’s knows its stuff.
Jodie Matthiesen, Hubert’s general manager, has been working for the company since she started part-time at the age of fourteen. Her mom, Maryanne, has been a business partner with the company for the last decade. The company is a strong pillar in Ottawa’s business community.
“I don’t think a lot of small businesses out there can say that they’ve been around as long as we have,” Matthiesen says.”We’re approaching that 100-year mark, and that’s exciting for our staff.”
While fireplaces add a warm, personal touch to a room, Hubert’s makes sure to add a warm and personal touch to its service too. “(One of) the key things that makes us stand out is that customer service is the most important thing.The majority of our clientele is based on referral,”explains Matthiesen. “Sometimes we’re seeing third and fourth generation customers.We have also stayed very small. We’re like one little family here.” Hubert’s makes it a priority to employ a team of inhouse staff.The company doesn’t rely on outside contractors, guaranteeing the quality of its work by its fast, knowledgeable, reliable and diligent crew.

“I can’t imagine a house without a fireplace. It just adds that warmth and ambience.” Matthiesen is right. It does. “On a cold day you just want to snuggle up in front of a fire. It’s a real place that you can gather around and have conversations, which doesn’t happen a lot these days.”
