About The Director

Iain Duncan has been in and around construction sites since he was 7 years old. Iain has worked in the rural areas of South Africa where he grew up, worked on large JV projects in London, renovated houses all over the US and built a house in the Canadian Rockies. Iain boot strapped StopGaps in 2008 with a dream and a dollar. Since then, he’s built up a large team of technicians and worked in the industry in WA, NSW and QLD, operating the business and consulting to other businesses. Since growing a large team of tradesmen, Iain has downsized the team to himself and a core couple of subcontractors. This allows StopGaps to focus on the detail and deliver the best customer experience for our clients.

Iain is a member of the Australian Institute of Waterproofing and a Master builders long serving member. Outside of work, Iain is passionate about his beautiful family, is a qualified yoga teacher and loves the ocean and the mountains.
