RECOGNITION

“We had an excellent experience with Marks-Woods Construction. We received bids from 3 other firms and found their pricing to be competitive. We found MW to be very responsive from the beginning of the design process all the way through project completion. We worked primarily with Greg Marks during the sales/design process then worked with Drew Marks day-to-day during construction. Our home is in a historic district in Alexandria and they were great partners moving the project through city approvals. I was very impressed with Armando, one of the leads, who knew the “right” way to build/fix anything. We stayed on budget. The thing that impressed me the most about MW was they were always choosing the right way, not the easy way. I felt like they were committed to doing a quality job every step of the way. I’d refer them with 100% confidence and would do business again with them in the future.”

“MW was great! We bought a fixer-upper a few years ago and decided to turn our basement into a rental apartment. We initially hired one company to underpin the basement and, if things worked out, intended to use that same company to finish the basement. After we ran into numerous problems with the other company, we started looking for another to finish the job. In comes MW. Greg came to our place and gave us a very fair estimate. Not the highest, not the lowest, but the most comprehensive. We decided on MW for a few reasons. They had some great back-office support, with design and purchasing. They were responsive to our requests/questions at the beginning of the project and throughout–and we had LOTS of questions and concerns after our terrible experience with the first company. They were willing to work with us on the budget and gave some great suggestions on how to save costs but not compromise quality. Most importantly, MW promised–and delivered–on having a project manager at our house EVERY DAY to check in. Matt is fantastic.”

“The design experience was excellent – MW Construction listened to our ideas, brought lots of new ideas, recycled proposed designs with us, visited showrooms with us to select the right finishes and the right appliances. The construction experience was also spectacular – the quality of workmanship, professionalism and timeliness makes a huge difference compared to others and the assignment of a high quality customer focused project manager to keep you regularly informed on progress and respond quickly to any questions was brilliant. MW Construction are a great company to work with – we will use them again for other design/construction projects in our home.”

“MW Construction is our dream team. From meeting with the company owner as we formed up our renovation plan to the in-house painters and carpenters, they were talented, professional, tidy, and so easy to have in the house for an extended period. The first phase of the project met our meticulous standards and so we worked with our FABULOUS project manager, Matt Galassi to create some change orders for additional work.”

Mary & Lew – Springfield, VA

“We hired MW to finish our basement, add a basement bath, gut and re-design our kitchen and upstairs bathroom, re-configure our duct work, rebuild two staircases, replace all windows, and rebuild our front porch. Given the scope of the remodel, I spent many, many hours researching and vetting local contractors before deciding on MW. We are extremely pleased with the final product! If you are seeking a rock bottom price on construction work and are willing accept the sub-par quality that often accompanies it, then MW is not for you. Our goal in undertaking our home renovation was to get excellent workmanship and a beautiful space without spending a fortune, and while living in the home during renovations. MW helped us achieve this.”

Cara & Tom – Del Ray, Alexandria, VA

“Family and friends who knew our home before, were stunned and impressed at how different and wonderful everything looks now. I asked them to create an extremely large kitchen and they designed it and built it intelligently and it is a complete home run. The upstairs bathroom was completed in a timely manner and they used smart design and expertise in solving issues that came up. They worked with us on prices to help us keep expenses reasonable for our budget. The responsiveness, professional and respectful behavior of project manager left us with a good feeling and we will use them again. I just cannot tell you what a relief it was to have workers in our home that we trusted and workmanship that speaks for itself in beauty and function.”

“Greg took on our master suite renovation over the summer of 2016 and we absolutely couldn’t be happier with the results. Greg and his team installed a new staircase to connect our bedroom to an attic/loft space, finished the loft into a master closet and remodeled our master bathroom. MW was on time, on budget, courteous and great to work with. Our project manager, Matt, would meet with us frequently for status updates and building decisions to ensure we got exactly what we wanted. The construction team was always on time and easy to work with. A professional organization, with great results.”

Katie & Jeff – Old Town, Alexandria, VA

“We hired MW Construction for our major renovation project after meeting with nearly a dozen contractors. Greg Marks sold us on their services with his straightforward style and innovative solutions to maximizing the space in our tiny row house. We had initially toyed with the idea of just doing the basement or just doing the bathroom, but decided to get it all done with at once – this was a great decision. We have recommended MW to many people since our renovation, including two who have signed contracts and now have beautiful spaces in their home. While our house has been totally renovated, we would not hesitate to use them again for a project.”

Christina & Brad – Del Ray, Alexandria, VA

“We contacted several contractors when considering a renovation of our bathroom and kitchen; MW won the contract by setting realistic expectations, responding to the huge number of questions we had, and giving a design that fit both our budget and our aesthetic. When we weren’t happy with the way something was going, they would quickly jump in and make an adjustment until we were happy. The result is a gorgeous kitchen that looks and feels bigger, more up-to-date, with a more efficient use of space, along with a bathroom that works great for our three kids. I would definitely use them again.”

Beth & Ryan – Arlington, VA

It was truly a pleasure to work with the MW Team throughout the entire process from start to finish. A major renovation such as the one we undertook could have been a very arduous task had we hired anyone else to do the job. The MW Team has the knowledge homeowners are looking for from years of experience to get the job done right the first time. We were very impressed with the craftsmanship of the work performed and attention to detail they had with all of the finishing work. There were no corners cut during construction and it definitely shows in the finished product. They are nice and honest people to work with from the Operations Manager, Greg Marks to the Project Manager, Drew Marks and all of the construction crew and subcontractors we worked with.” Katye & Matt – Alexandria, VA

“The execution and quality of the work was excellent and we could not be more pleased with our new living space! The entire MW Team are a collection of professionals who listened to our dream and helped us formulate a vision to execute on —- giving us options and choices throughout the process. Greg and Drew Marks were extremely helpful from day one through the completion date, their management of our 2 month project was very smooth. We must give a big “shout-out” to Armando, who lead the on-site construction team — not only is he a consummate professional craftsman, he was a true joy to work with — he was never satisfied until each part of our project was perfect!”
