The Family tradition continues into the 21st Century


Fretwell Bleckley


Fretwell Bleckley began the building and restoration business that continues today through his grandson. Now in the third generation, The Fretwell Group, LLC continues the family business of working with insurance carriers throughout the southeast, mainly here in Georgia. State Farm, GEICO, USAA and All State just to name a few.

We have repaired, rebuilt and ‘put back to the original condition’ both homes and businesses for over 60 years.

Originally started in 1947 by my grandfather, we are a team of ambitious professionals with a wealth of practical, skilled, experience that has earned a remarkable reputation as a leading repair and restoration company.

When we launched The Fretwell Group, we were committed to operate with unwavering ethics and quality workmanship. In short, we will do what we say and be there when we say.
