our history

BluSky was founded in June of 2004 by Terry Shadwick and fellow entrepreneur, Andy Bakker. Mr. Shadwick and Mr. Bakker both grew up in rural Iowa, where they learned you are only as good as your word and the service you provide. They both bring finance degrees to the oversight of the company, in addition to the vast construction management experience they’ve gained over several decades.  From two employees to well over 120 today, the co-founders have built an award-winning company that now has  shareholders who actively work in leadership roles.

our philosophy

Our name refers to our philosophy of making it better, of building it better, of roofing it better and our company’s belief that you can rest assured you will be treated with respect and courtesy.  We will strive to meet your expectations.  When our clients are faced with an immediate property disaster, BluSky strives to be the silver lining in the clouds.  WE BUILD IT BETTER and get you back to where you were!

founding principles

BluSky was founded on the values of traditional craftsmen and family-owned businesses. We remain trained, educated and current on industry technology and advances in operational efficiency. All BluSky employees are empowered and expected to Make It Better. We value our differences and have fun while we work hard. Our group comes together to create extraordinary synergy and we leverage experience and intelligence to create the best customer experience and project outcome possible.

Since 2004, we’ve supported our claim of superior customer service by maintaining our 96 Proof philosophy—96% of our clients say “I would hire BluSky again”. BluSky was previously recognized by Colorado Biz Magazine as one of the Best Companies to Work for in Colorado, has been on the Inc 500/5000 list since 2009, and President and Founder Terry Shadwick has been a finalist for the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award three times.
