Tara grew up in Jonestown, PA. After graduating high school, she joined the US Army and spent 8 years between active duty, the reserves, and National Guard. Tara was in a support battalion during her military career and worked several humanitarian missions throughout Central American during the 1990’s helping feed, clothe, and build schools in many third world locations such as Panama, Honduras, and El Salvador. It was her military performance in one of these remote locations which caught the eye of a global restoration firm which was working alongside her battalion. Eventually the private firm offered Tara a position in global restoration and, after an honorable discharge, Tara joined their team and was sent all over the United States and Caribbean leading teams of restoration professionals in property restoration. She relocated to Currituck, NC in 2000 and began a new career in retail management and customer service in the hardware industry.

  • On December 17, 2013 around 9:30 am, I received the most unexpected phone call at work. My husband called to tell me that our house was filled with smoke, he had called the fire department, and I needed to come home. When I got home, I was shocked at the damage the fire had caused. I called my insurance company and they called Bluewater Restoration. Bluewater was at my house at 1:00pm that day to assess the damage. They informed us that it would be a total “gut out.” This means every room in my house would have to be gutted to the studs and have to be rebuilt. We decided we would meet them the next morning at 9:00am and they would begin the work. I couldn’t really sleep that night wondering what all had to be done. When we met them the next morning, I walked in my house and saw a man sitting on the floor in front of my Christmas tree. The top half of the tree was melted. He was sitting there taking off the ornaments he thought they could save. At that very moment I knew we were in good hands and I didn’t worry anymore. In 72 days, they had completely rebuilt the entire inside of my house and we could go home. I could not imagine going through this process without them. Bluewater is an amazing company. Their compassion at such a difficult time is beyond words. They were always just a phone call away to answer questions or just listen. If anything was to ever happen again they would be the first ones I would call. Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough to express our appreciation and gratitude towards Bluewater. We never could have done this without you!!

  • My husband & I highly recommend Bluewater Restoration as they made a very difficult situation for our family as easy as it possibly could be! They were a pleasure and joy to work with, local, honest, & efficient. Laurie & Tara took point with the insurance company, getting us what we needed to replace our damaged items and more… they fought for us! The staff answered all of our many, many, questions and someone was always there when we called. We feel as though they made our home, their home, and because of that I knew we were in good, experienced, hands! Bluewater was also extremely helpful when it came time to pay our bill, and allowed us to receive credits for the work we did ourselves. We can not say that we would like to go through the process again, haha, but we can say if life throws us another water damage curve ball, Bluewater would be number one on our speed dial!

  • I have been a Bluewater Restoration customer for 20 years.  Joel, you and your guys have helped me to properly maintain three waterfront/ water exposure houses on Long Island, as well as my former oceanfront house and present semi-oceanfront house in Duck.  Being on or near the surf surely takes its toll on a house.  I know I can rely on you to do the job properly and as promised.  That’s why, after all these years, I am still a loyal and appreciative customer.  And, I would recommend you to anybody who asks. –Steve Summer

  • When our family discovered a water leak in our home, the name recommended was Bluewater Restoration.  I dialed the number fully expecting no response, but to my surprise on the other end of the phone was a genuinely empathetic person: Laurie, who said: “We’ll have someone there to assess the situation in a few hours if you would like.”  Within hours, Chris arrived at our home.  He was professional, courteous, and was truly concerned with fixing the disaster. The next day, a team of four guys arrived bright and early, eager to take on what I felt was the impossible. The pride and professionalism demonstrated by the entire team was overwhelming.  The explicit attention to every detail and the courteous nature exceeded my expectations many times over. –My family and I would like to express our gratitude to everyone at Bluewater Restoration.

  • Being unaware that a hot water hose busted on the washing machine and ran for approximately 30 days caused major water damage and fungus growth on the lower level.  Having a claim of this magnitude was very difficult being 350 miles away and, not able to see the damage, hard to comprehend.  There is no doubt in our minds that the Bluewater Restoration crew did everything they were trained to do and then some.  We would strongly advise that anyone in this situation rely on your recommendations and expertise for the clean up and repairs.  Also, they are well versed in the insurance industry and can help you understand your coverages.–Maxine and Gail Wallace

  • I relied on Bluewater Restoration when the Nor’easter hit the week before Thanksgiving of 2006.  I had a small amount of structural damage, roof damage and bent and torn screens.  You covered my roof with a tarp to prevent further damage until the new roof was put on a week later.  The biggest problem was a broken slab from a previous structure washed up on the beach in front of my house and the city would not clean it up.  You lined up a crew to come in and pick up the debris, move it to the street, and haul it off.  Then we had to remove about one and a half feet of sand out from under the house.  All this was taken care of with you overseeing everything.  That was my first storm (and won’t be the last, I am sure) and you handled everything so that I didn’t have to worry about the details.–Carol Eakin
