Deck or Porch Remodel or Addition
Mark was great. He came over to our place to give us a quote and some ideas and suggestions for our porch. He was friendly, on time and had some good knowledge and ideas to share!Oct 12, 2018Verified
We recently hired Mark to rebuild our deck using a composite decking. The outcome is both stunning and structurally sound. Mark was in constant communication with us from the beginning of the project to the end. He was responsive to all inquiries and requests throughout. Mark also provided detailed explanation of the process so that there were no surprises along the way. We are extremely pleased with his work and intend to hire him in the future for other household projects.Aug 25, 2019Verified
Mark is a very personable and professional, very knowledgeable about the type of project I was doing witch involved remodeling a deck and install new front stairs. Mark answered all my questions I had about my project And offered good suggestions on existing areas on my deck and stairs and some problem areas that my house needed repairing. Marks carpenters were very nice and did a great job on my Deck and stairs! Thought cost and value of project was very fair and would defiantly hire Mark again for any future projects I may have in the future. Thank you Mark!Jul 23, 2019Verified
Basement Finishing or Remodeling
Mark did a great job with a full basement remodel plus full bath. Good attention to detail and aims to please. We will be calling you again soon!Jun 25, 2019Verified
Mark and his team have been great to work with. Excellent communication, they’re very professional, and certainly know what they’re doing! Our treehouse was falling out of the tree and not only did they secure the structure, build stairs and an additional deck, but they patched up the trees to prevent infection. I’d certainly recommend them!Jul 17, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?my pricing is honest, I take what is needed for the specific job regarding quality and complexity into consideration and my pricing is reasonably flexible based on what the customer actually needs. I can build a piano or put shelving in your garage, every job is different.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always prefer to personally visit the customer and introduce myself before any work is done. I feel it is important to thoroughly review their needs and discuss exactly what I would do, and how, to make absolutely certain all aspects of what they need and how I would do the job are understood and satisfactory. Given my experience I often have more efficient or preferred approaches or suggestions that surprise the customer and ultimately save money and time.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I attended Northeastern University for electrical engineering, was a white collar executive for most of my life and I am a handyman, Car Guy, patented inventor of the doggie washer, published five star rated novelist, artist , antique and modern home refinisher and past chairman of the board of a large private organization. above anything I am a people person!
