Meet the Owner: James Puopolo

Property is a huge investment. When you have to have work done, you want it done right without breaking the bank and without any contractor headaches. I’m James Puopolo, the local owner and operator of TruBlue of Wakefield, and I want those things too. I opened this business because I saw an opportunity to provide people in this region with a trustworthy, dependable, convenient and affordable option for their home care needs.

TruBlue specializes in providing handyman services, maid and cleaning services, lawn care, emergency repairs, seasonal projects, a senior accessibility program and more. TruBlue also partners with home owners and realtors to get homes ready to sell, prepare new homes for move in, and complete home inspection punch lists. Basically, TruBlue offers affordable, convenient and high-quality services that allow you to spend your time doing the things you love instead of worrying about your to-do list.

Prior to opening this business, I spent my career in retail and customer service. I was looking to break out on my own when I saw that an old mentor, friend and former boss owned a TruBlue franchise in Virginia. That’s when the gears started to turn. As I learned more about the company, I found myself wishing there was a TruBlue where I lived so I could hire them to take care of all of my home care needs. The one call does it all, worry-free approach TruBlue takes is something, as a consumer, I knew I’d want in my life.

I understand that working with contractors – or sometimes even finding a contractor – can be a struggle. When you work with TruBlue, you’re working with a locally owned and operated small business that has the backing of a national company with a strong reputation and years of experience.

I couldn’t be happier

“I would highly recommend TruBlue Fence Co. From start to finish the TruBlue Team was professional and highly skilled. They even made some accommodations to secure my fence beyond a typical installment, because of my new small puppy who is an escape artist. I couldn’t be happier with the quality of their work and the ease of working with this company. They go above and beyond. Thank you so much!”

able to complete the job with an incredibly fast turnaround

“Jim and his team did a fantastic job for me. I got a combo chain link and vinyl colonial fence. Jim came in with a competitive price and was able to complete the job with an incredibly fast turnaround (3 day job started the day after we agreed to a rate). The team was very professional and helped me understand what options we had as different issues came up (our land is slanted, so we had a few options for how to adjust for it). They were also very friendly! I highly recommend true blue to anyone in need of a fence. Fast, friendly and affordable, Jim and his team are the best!”

Michael F

His workers were very polite

“Jim came out the day I contacted him to give us an estimate. His workers were very polite and when I pointed out that one piece was wrong they understood. Came back a few days later and finished and we couldn’t be happier. Would definitely recommend them.”

Peggy G

These guys are the best!

“These guys are the best! Jim was excellent with communications and estimates. The two guys who came out are super experienced and it really showed in their work. Both the chain link fence and privacy fence were beautifully installed. I would definitely use these guys again!”
