I hired Mark Tivey to completely repaint and repair significant damage done by departing tenants to my 2/2 investment condo. Not only did he restore the 1448 sq.ft. to liveable condition within a week; he successfully completed the work in my absence.Jul 4, 2017Verified

Mr. Tivey came to provide an estimate of work for a remodel project. His demeanor during the entire walk thru was that of a know it all and he spoke down to me through the process. At one point he (with hands on hips, leaning in a door frame) knocked his head on the wall three times, rolled his eyes, and walked out of the room following my suggestion that my husband and I could install a bathroom vanity but what we needed was a new shower pan and could not do that. He was rude, demeaning, and capped his time with me by walking out the door exclaiming this project is not what he needs to be doing. Very unprofessional!Jul 8, 2017VerifiedTivey Construction, Inc.'s reply
Wow, I pride myself on being able to work with people of all personality types. Unfortunately, after 10 minutes of meeting with this homeowner, I realized that this would not lead to a successful project. As far as being a “know-it-all”, I don’t pretend to know it all-but with nearly 30 years of experience in both commercial and residential of all types, as well as Degree in Construction Management, I have a pretty good idea of to how manage construction projects. Educating homeowners is a practice that has been not only well received, but also helpful as the design/construction process can be complicated and confusing to many. I do apologize if this came across as demeaning, that was never my intent. I encourage you to read my other reviews by folks that I have worked with for months and years vs. the 10 minutes spent with this homeowner. A review isn’t just a snapshot of the “Chemistry” between the homeowner and Contractor, but should be based on the Contractor’s professionalism the overall success, of the project, quality of the work, timeliness of completion as well as many other factors. Despite this most unfavorable review, I hope this homeowner finds a suitable contractor that leads to a successful project. As for me, sometimes you just gotta know when to walk away.
Mark does great work and explains everything he is doing. Also goes over different alternatives in handling the situation in the best way to stay on budgetMar 5, 2016Verified
I asked Mark to remodel my mom's bathroom to make it handicap accessible. His plans are excellent. I had to put the job on hold for a few days as some health issues have come up. Will definitely be having Mark do more jobs for my family.Jul 8, 2016Verified

Installed 3 handicap grab bars in 2 bathrooms, did a great job in a timely fashion and I was very happy. I would recommend Mark again.Feb 21, 2016Verified
