De Marco Builders Inc.
About this pro
After a horrible experience with an unprofessional engineer, we finally got plans approved by the city to convert our garage into an accessible ADU for my elderly parents. Joe picked up the project, and did an amazing job correcting the mess he was given. His team fixed multiple issues with the original plans, negotiated with the city, and spent tons of time chatting with my very particular parents to try to make their home just the way they wanted it. Their “cottage” is gorgeous, and I only wish we had know about Joe and used his team from the begining.May 8, 2018
We recently finished a basement remodel with Joe and DeMarco Builders, and they've been incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the process. Although our project was smaller than some of his others, Joe has still made us feel like a priority and always makes time for us. His staff is professional and hardworking, and Joe has a great eye for taking a project from concept all the way through to completed design. He had a great visions for the space, but left room for our ideas and opinions. The result was a beautifully finished basement that is now nicer than the rest of our house! They won't be the cheapest quote you get, but their work is of excellent quality. If you're looking for a good design-build contractor, we highly recommend them.Apr 23, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Each project especially residential remodel and additions must be figured for cost individually. They have their own identity unlike the next. New construction can be assigned a cost per Sq. Ft. for a budgeting tool but the final cost exact cost will come when architecture is complete that is why it is essential to design from a budget and keep that in mind through the entire design process
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Arranging a time to meet that is convenient for my clients Listening very well to our clients so that we will have a precise picture of the project. Taking a close look at the property and structure where the project will take place so that we see exactly how the structure will seamlessly come together. Looking at existing finishes so that they can be matched if that is the case. Walking our clients through the process and what to expect from design, permitting, construction and final. Designing and building from a budget, finding the budget and trying very hard to stay within that budget and still render a finish product that will make our clients happy
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been in construction for 38 years as a laborer to start, a worker in all phases of building from foundation/concrete, framing, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, roofing, siding, finish carpentry, granite/stone, stucco etc. I have performed until a professional at all scopes of work. I became a working foreman, superintendent, General superintendent, project manager and finally an owner of my own company. I am fluid in architecture and engineering as well.
