1st Aide was founded by Doug and Cheri Watkins on the belief that honesty, integrity and service could be provided by a contractor. It is our intent to change the perception that “contractors don’t always act in the customer’s best interest.” Our essential goal of always Doing the Right Thing for the Right Reason drives every activity, project, training, endeavor and relationship.

1st Aide is known as the premier restoration contractor in Central North Carolina. From the very beginning in May of 2000 we have constantly sought the best solutions for our customers, whether their particular problem was a result of fire, water damage, mold, storm, smoke odor or any other type of disaster.

Each type of disaster requires a particular approach that must be addressed with the unique ability to determine what is The Best Solution for the Customer. Although the techniques we employ may be routine to us, there is nothing routine about how we get you, the customer, from the point of contact to the end of the project. We are here for you.
