Trusted Service Providers (October 2019 Update)

Big Blue Services

Big Blue is primarily a pool & spa care firm, but they also offer services such as landscape care.  Based out of Corolla, I know them personally – they take care of my own pool & spa – and I’ve seen them make miracles happen on pools that are just too ugly to think about getting in.  Their idea of care goes beyond the pool & spa – if they see something goofy with some other aspect of your property, they will sound the alarm. 

Contact Big Blue at 252.244.7900 or on the web at  

Action Plumbing

Action is the operative word with these folks.  Fast response & fast Action from a skilled team of pros in the field and at the main office.  They also communicate very well and take the time to make sure you know what the problem is, what your options are, and what they did to make things right.  Great services at a fair price.

Bluewater Restoration

I can not say enough good things about Bluewater Restoration.  I’ve met many of their field people on-site at remediation and restoration jobs and they are all knowledgeable, professional, and communicate well with me and the property owners.  The work Bluewater has done for my customers is done with care.  It’s never a good situation when Bluewater needs to be involved, but when you need a restoration job, I highly recommend going to Bluewater first.  You can reach them at 252.491.2500 and
