Bluewater Restoration™ is celebrating another milestone in the company’s history as it prepares to take occupancy in their new 6000+ office building in Jarvisburg, across from the Cotton Gin.
“It was when the signs went up that it really started to sink in,“ commented Stacy Justice, owner and General Manager of the business that has been located in Currituck County since 1997.
“We are very blessed to have been able to secure this beautiful building and continue to support the local economy with jobs and service.”
The new location will allow Bluewater Restoration™ a more visible spot for all potential customers to see what the company offers and realize that Bluewater Restoration™ is dedicated to serving northeastern North Carolina. Continuing in the restoration service industry, Bluewater Restoration™ does not work in a vacuum according to Stacy, “This is really about working in the community; we did not achieve this alone. Without the support from Currituck County’s Economic Development Director Peter Bishop, the NC Workforce Development Board, Small Business Technology Development Center’s Michael Twiddy, and many other local, state, and federal support for many years, we may not have ever gotten here.”
The company has also developed excellent relations with many of the local contractors and construction suppliers and associated businesses which are a main support system for the successful restoration business. “There are some excellent construction related businesses in our area and those we work with are top notch in that they know that our work is emergency repair and not simply someone wanting to remodel their home for pleasure—-that is a completely different kind of remodeling/rebuild scenario when dealing with water or fire damage restoration,” continues Stacy.
Bluewater Restoration™ has been located in Jarvisburg, or as the locals call it, “the Burg”, since moving from the beach in 1997 and really loves the little town. “We are proud to be located near several quality establishments like The Cotton Gin, Shoreline Outdoor Power Center, and Barefoot Motors to name a few,” said Justice. The company hopes to continue a strong economic presence for all of Currituck and be able to grow jobs and economic opportunity for the existing workforce which are long term, talented and dedicated individuals.
The company believes that all parties involved with Bluewater Restoration™ will benefit: Customers, County, and Employees.
Bluewater Restoration™ believes in Win-Win-Win scenarios and it operates based on that belief system which has proven to be a successful track since it opened its doors in 1986 as a small mom-n-pop. “We will work with almost anyone to achieve a positive outcome for everyone and this makes a big difference when it comes to putting your home back together following a property disaster.”
Having experienced property loss themselves, the owners truly understand what it means to lose a home to fire.
“Things happen for a reason, of that I am positive, and when we lost a home, it was extremely hard to deal with, but I had that belief in the back of my mind…..and kept asking what is the lesson in this?” remembered Stacy, “…and sure enough….over time the reasons and lessons we learned became very clear and we were able to overcome and gain insight, compassion, and courage through the process.” The business aims at helping others through their temporary adversity with those insights and vision of the whole picture that those who are caught up in disaster at the moment cannot see.
Stacy sums it up with, “We help to bridge the gap for those in need of dealing with what is present to visualizing what the future holds and the promise it brings.”
