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 now need to limit our work to $2000 size needs and up from there. This is necessary for us to properly commit our crews, equipment, etc. We are fully covid conscious and compliant, wear face masks and sterilize our hands multiple times a day. We carry complete Workers Compensation and Liability Insurance, which is extremely important and protects you in many ways! We have Licensed Construction Supervisors on our team (CSL's for structural work, pulling permits, ensuring work is to code and managing inspections, if necessary), along with a licensed master electrician and licensed master plumber/pipe fitter. 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 in the covid world, 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 insure 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 own an amazing assortment of state-of-the-art tools including lasers and specialty equipment, and our company owns a modern dual axel dump trailer which 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, and are meticulous, prompt, efficient, and clean! Please read our reviews, we work hard for them and are proud of them.

GUARANTEED! Thanks again for taking a look at us, and we do look forward to hearing from you, and adding you to our growing list of 5 star reviews! Very Best Regards and stay safe! Mark.

Deck or Porch Repair

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.

Deck or Porch Remodel or Addition

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.

Mark and his team were excellent to work with. He is very responsive and aims to please. We had a small demolition and carpentry project and he was timely, professional, and left our home clean and barely looking like anyone had been there. We will definitely call him again for future projects!

Mark and his team did a great job repairing my old aluminum siding and the rotted wood underneath. They were able to manufacture needed pieces and do the work three stories up. He even charged me less than his estimate.

FAQs

  • 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!
