40 Years of CT Restoration Services | JP Maguire

JP Maguire is proudly celebrating 40 years in business this year!  Over several decades of growth, JP Maguire Associates is still locally owned, and family operated.  Started by two brothers, Jim and Tom Maguire, the business expanded and started painting for a restoration cleaning company in Fairfield County. Over time, this evolved into a network of insurance adjuster relationships, which subsequently led to more insurance work.

Initially, they did only small jobs. But, as they proved their competence, the jobs’ size and complexity grew. Tom transitioned into real estate development and home construction and JP Maguire Associates was formally established in 1982 by Jim Maguire. Today, it’s one of Connecticut’s oldest and most established damage reconstruction contractors.

Jim has since retired from the restoration industry, but the family tradition still carries on. Jim’s son, Jamie Maguire IV, and April Garceau, the company’s trusted Comptroller for over 13 years, are now leading JP Maguire Associates into the future. Both Jamie and April play an active role in the day-to-day operations of the business, thus, ensuring that JP Maguire adheres to the principle of satisfying the customer’s needs first. Experience, knowledge, and professionalism, JP Maguire Associates has become one of Connecticut’s most respected contracting firms specializing in insurance reconstruction.

 JP Maguire’s team is a powerhouse of experienced professionals, which include estimators, production managers, mitigation managers, painters, carpenters, restoration technicians, administrative, and marketing staff.

 During their 40 years in business, JP Maguire Associates has handled losses, ranging from the smallest damage claim, to large property losses worth millions of dollars. We have worked on every type of structure from residential properties to municipal buildings and from commercial properties to historic sites.  In addition, JP Maguire has been passionately involved in the community to encourage fire safety and work with local fire departments to promote safety in the community.  As a proud sponsor of Operation Save a Life the last few years, JP Maguire has partnered with Kidde and News 8 to help with alarm donations and education, supporting community events, educating the public and supporting firefighters in Connecticut. 

 JP Maguire Associates is truly appreciative of the opportunity to serve in the community and in business over the last 40 years.  Here’s to 40 more!

From our family to yours, thank you for your support.
