About Us – Blu Shields Construction
For more than 35 years, Texas City resident Blu Shields has successfully owned and operated Galveston Service Company, offering a wide variety of construction and remodeling services to many satisfied area homeowners. With a vision to change the philosophy of custom homebuilding, his ultimate challenge is to unite all builders as one while bringing together all county and city emergency management teams so that communities throughout the entire United States can be rebuilt.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, Blu formed Blu Shields Construction as a division of Galveston Service Company and Energy Solution Homes to specialize in the new construction of raised-floor homes ideally suited to our coastal community. We are the only builder in this part of the country building highly energy efficient homes (without solar or wind generated power) that produce very low electric bills. In addition, our affordable, high quality homes are typically completed in 30 to 45 days, are built below the average construction cost, and meet ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards for accessible design. We offer a selection of 15 basic floor plans, any of which can easily be customized as you wish. Blu himself is intimately involved in the construction of every home from start to finish and stands true to his word, accompanied by a solid shake of your hand.
Drawing on our expertise as time and materials specialists, Blu Shields Construction is able to complete a new home from ground-breaking to move-in in significantly less time than other builders. We use our own crews exclusively, stack the trades to enable functions that are typically done separately to instead be completed concurrently, and have been building green long before the practice became popular.
For comfort and peace-of-mind in coastal living, choose Blu Shields Construction. You’ll be more than pleased with the high quality of homes we build and amazed at the efficiency and speed of our work. Just ask any of our previous customers.
As they expanded the business over the years, Blu and his family have earned a trustworthy reputation through hard work, an honest living and big hearts. Meet the team that guides our company by believing in family morals, conducting all business with mutual respect and offering unparalleled experience.
