Welcome John McQuaid!
We would like to welcome our newest owner to the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE family!
Please meet John McQuaid, owner of 1-800 WATER DAMAGE of Nassau County.
Several years ago, John owned a Sylvan Learning Center franchise and had the unfortunate experience of a fire at one of his centers. Thankfully, nobody was injured and the positive outcome was that it introduced him to the property restoration business. Shortly thereafter, John sold his Sylvan Learning business and began exploring the possibility of purchasing an ongoing restoration business. That's when a friend of John's introduced him to a representative at 1-800 WATER DAMAGE.
John was quickly impressed by many aspects of the company, including the reputation of BELFOR, which was an important contributor to his decision. However, the thing that stood out most to John was the honesty and integrity of the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE team members he met and spoke to. Being part of a franchise system before, John understands and believes the franchisee/franchisor relationship is critical. Hearing positive feedback about that was the highest praise 1-800 WATER DAMAGE could have received, helping solidify John's decision to join the 1-800 WATER DAMAGE family.
With his new 1-800 WATER DAMAGE location, John will be serving Nassau County in Long Island, NY. His goal is to grow the business into the number one property restoration partner in Nassau County. John aims to build a business in which all of their constituents--clients and staff alike--can rely on them to mitigate property damage with the best quality of work and the highest level of respect for their homes and businesses.
John and his wife, Janice, have two sons named Matthew and Brian, both of whom are currently college students. John says Janice is his inspiration, and she also happens to be an outstanding middle-school teacher (she just won "Teacher of the Year" in her school district!) and a wonderful mom to their boys. When John is not busy working, he enjoys writing, running, and spending time with family and friends. He's also an avid backpacker and tries to get in at least one winter backpacking trip into the mountains of northern New York each year.
John can be reached at john.mcquaid@1800waterdamage.
