Party Time!

Mark of Excellence Remodeling builds much more than additions. They build relationships. The Design + Build projects require an interaction with every department and each member of the staff before and during a project. Larger projects can mean daily contact for as much as a six month period. That length of time surely tests the strength of any relationship. The one's built upon respect and communication only become stronger.

There are many things that Mark of Excellence Remodeling does for and with a client after a project's completion. There have been dinners, trips and parties. The most popular may be the Summer barbecues. They serve as a platform to gather family, friends and neighbors to celebrate the client's home renovation. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed and always turn out great - as long as the weather somewhat cooperates.

Two recent barbecues were held this August. One was in Lincroft and the other in Middletown. The Lincroft project was a 225 square foot addition on a brick Cape Cod style home. The new and old space combined to create a gourmet kitchen area. The project also featured a new bathroom, masonry patio, new roofing and landing with a portico overhang. The Middletown project was a 1,000 square foot elevated deck that included two sets of stairs, Timbertech pvc decking, vinyl railings and lattice and a 12' x 12' pergola.

The following blog entries have pictures from the two barbecues.
