                        Bottom line he could have taken shortcuts, but my roof had borderline catastrophic damage that could have cost me thousands later on. He showed me the problem and recommended the proper way to repair it without being overbearing. He knows his work and pays attention to detail. He is a knowledgeable, highly qualified contractor and a good Christian man (our conversations on the roof).

            If you are looking for the cheapest way out don’t call Mark. If you are looking for excellent, quality, dependable work at a competitive price he is the first man that you should call.

Dave M.: In 1988 I opened a restaurant in Montauk NY when Mark had his business on Long Island. I had to do a major renovation and Mark "walked me off the cliff" as they say. His many years of experience and professionalism are too many to mention here. If you need anything done, CALL MARK MARCLEY

Pat Merritt: I had deteriorating floor joists.  The problem was corrected by replacing the joists and the complete bathroom floor.  I am very pleased with Mark's work and I have recommended him to others.


Carl and Diane Friedman: "When we discovered wet and rotting hardwood floors under the wall-to-wall carpeting in a bedroom next to one of our bathrooms, we were advised to call Mark Marcley to address this problem.  Mark responded promptly, quickly appraised the situation, and within a few days had replaced the hardwood flooring; not an easy task in an old beach cottage as he had to mill newly-purchased hardwood to fit the existing floor.  He also identified the leak source and fixed the leaking bathtub and further reinforced the underlying floor joists in the basement under the bathroom.


Mark and his crew were friendly, efficient, timely, and did their work on budget, which was reasonable."
