A new business has opened its doors filling a niche in the home decor and renovation industry for both homeowners and renters alike.

Green Island Restoration is the sister company of Orange Bay Company, a consignment home furnishing and accessories store, which has also recently become well known for their home staging services. The new business specialises in affordable, smaller-scale renovations and handyman services.

The brainchild of Delight and Rudy Morris, co-owners of Orange Bay Company, Green Island Restoration provides a wide range of interior and exterior building and maintenance services that include masonry repair and new block construction, painting, framing and drywall, installation of pavers, roof repairs and more.

For many people who rent homes, particularly those who are expatriates, hanging pictures on Bermuda’s porous walls can prove to be difficult. That’s just one of the areas where Green Island Restoration can help.

“At Orange Bay Company, customers who purchase furniture through us or hire us for home staging services are typically trying to improve their homes on a limited budget,” explained Mr Morris.

“We were often asked if we knew someone who could help with things like hanging art, painting or structural repairs. Over time, we recognised that there was a real need in Bermuda for affordable, reliable home repair, maintenance and building services.”

For renters Green Island Restoration offers a ‘Moving In’ package that includes cleaning, painting and picture hanging services, and a ‘Moving Out’ package designed to help tenants restore rental spaces to their original condition to facilitate the repayment of security deposits.

“We launched Green Island Restoration to fill that need,” added Mr Morris. “Our niche is in providing professional home improvement services that are beyond the scope of what a homeowner or renter will typically be willing to tackle, but smaller than what the large contractors usually bid on.”

Mr Morris is a mason with more than a decade of construction experience in Bermuda. Due to his appreciation for Bermuda’s traditional building techniques, wherever possible, Rudy uses traditional methods and materials in his work. From recementing and bricking pool areas to laying stone walls, Green Island Restoration has already been busy this summer with clients utilising services from their ‘Around The Outside’ package.

“Green Island Restoration is being well received by Orange Bay Company’s customers who have been looking for help from honest, professional and affordable contractors to take care of things they have been putting off or that are beyond their abilities,” said Delight Morris, co-owner of Green Island Restoration. “And the services offered by Green Island Restoration are a natural complement to our home staging services and our large inventory of affordably priced, gently used furniture and accessories. With one stop at our Mill Creek location, customers can access all the products and services they need to create inspiring spaces on a budget.”

To give customers the opportunity to try them out, the company is offering a 15 percent discount on all residential labour costs until December 31, 2013.

Customers can view testimonials and request a quote via their website and receive estimates and invoices via e-mail.

The company also offers customers the ability to pay online.
