Introduction: Hi there! Thanks for taking a look at our company! We are a very unique and cost competitive group of qualified, versatile, and highly-skilled professionals with decades of multi-trade experience. Given our popularity (we are top rated in the United States), please kindly understand that we need to limit our work to approximately $4000 size needs and up from there. Our larger projects well exceed 100k. This is necessary for us to properly secure permits if necessary, commit our crews and equipment, schedule materials, etc. We carry complete Workers Compensation and Liability Insurance, which is extremely important and protects you in many ways. We have Licensed Architects and Construction Supervisors on our team (CSL's for managing our work, pulling permits, ensuring work is to code and coordinating all inspections as necessary), along with licensed master electricians and licensed master plumber/pipe fitters. We are a registered HIC (Home Improvement Contractor) which also affords you many levels of protection. Our combined experience well exceeds 125 years. We are a premium service, visit our reviews! All documents are redily available upon request. We are friendly and we arrive on time, as scheduled. Initially we meet you in person, on site, to introduce our company and properly discuss and understand your needs. We then submit to you a detailed statement of work, drawing plans if necessary, a detailed quote and standard contract for sign off, if you wish to proceed with us. Our company has preferred commercial accounts and relationships with most suppliers, from the big box stores to specialty custom countertop, cabinetry, exotic materials and millwork suppliers. In many cases this allows us to extend our commercial volume cost savings to our customers, while offering premium quality service, products and expedited deliveries, which is very important, at very competitive pricing. We commit crew to you daily, from start of a project through completion. Our approach is to communicate, update and review work in progress with our customers continuously throughout our efforts, this is very important to ensure precise results. We are elete finish carpenters and most of us own complete workshops. We design and install custom built-ins, cabinetry, and elaborate stair systems all the way to "frame to finish" construction. We are extremely experienced in all aspects of roof, facia, and soffit installation and repair. We install and remodel almost everything, decks, porches, walls, siding, doors, additions, dormers, windows, on and on. We specialize in repair of any type of wood rot, including structural damage. We do electrical work and plumbing and minor to major turnkey kitchen and bathroom custom design and remodeling. We install custom ceramic tiling, including cement board, shower pans, and glass doors. Also offered are professional plastering, installation of suspended and sheetrock ceilings, hardwood, vinyl and composite floor systems, and complete finished basements! Care to add living space, maybe a bathroom, bar, or kitchen in your basement? No problem, we have done countless! We excel at home/estate and commercial long-term property management responsibilities, including businesses and condo associations. Each of us owns an amazing assortment of state-of-the-art tools, including lasers and specialty equipment, and our company owns a modern dual axel dump trailer that visits our job sites for waste removal, as/when appropriate. All waste is properly disposed of, and green processed, at the G Mello Corp. transfer station in Georgetown. From sliding glass doors, windows, or interior/exterior woodwork to custom staircases and handrails to complete demolition and renovations, we do it all. Again, we have very versatile skill sets, are meticulous, prompt, efficient, and clean! Please read our reviews. We work hard for them and are proud of them.

I hired Mark after purchasing my mother’s house. I met with several contractors and Mark was the most professional by far. We were looking to raise the roof and convert eves to a dormer on the second floor getting us lots of needed space. We needed a couple bedrooms and office and a bathroom. From the day they started there was barely any downtime. While waiting for plumbers and inspections the crew worked on the siding. The crew worked fast and hard throughout the entire process. I also got updates so I always knew what was going on and that was key. Mark also encouraged me to reach out if I EVER had a question or concern about anything. The one time I asked him a question he had an instant response, always knew what was going on. They truly care about the work they did and it shows. So many compliments on the work

Mark was excellent to work with. Him and his crew demolished the previous ceiling, reinforced the existing structure, and then plastered the ceiling and added recessed lights. They were great at communicating and the job looks like it was well done and ready to be painted. They were also great with dogs! Would definitely hire again

We had an excellent experience working with Mark and his team on our deck project. Mark was responsive and walked us through all of our choices. He helped us choose a cost effective Trex product and made sure we understood everything that was going to happen. He had two great guys come work on the project who were friendly to have around, respectful to our space, and did great work. The cost was very reasonable and Mark was accommodating to our budget. We are sooo happy with the final product and look forward to working with Mark on any future home projects.

After the person I hired to finish my basement floor bailed a quarter through the job I contacted Mark. I contacted Mark on a Tuesday and he came out that day to look at the job and quote me a price. Thursday mark contacted me letting me know that Chad would be at my home on Saturday. Chad arrived Saturday at 9am ( on time) and finished the job in a few hours. Chad worked the entire time not taking cell phone breaks . My experience with Mark and Chad was excellent and I will definitely be hiring them for future projects.

We had an excellent experience with Mark's Home Improvement. We contacted Mark about a small project in our basement and we heard back from him very quickly. Mark listened to our plans and goals for the project and made very helpful suggestions. Mark was also willing to work within whatever budget parameters we set and never pressured us to increase the budget. Mark was very communicative and came to meet us at our home several times in the evening to fit our work schedules. Once the work began, it went incredibly quickly and smoothly. The team was neat and friendly and our dog loved having them visit. Now that the work is complete we couldn't be happier with the outcome and wont hesitate to contact Marks Home Improvement for future projects.

Details: I'm just starting • Basement • Complete renovation • Less than 500 sq ft • Home • I am the owner
