Through his commitment to excellence and a dedication to professionalism, Mark has continued to exceed industry standards by forming strong professional partnerships based on integrity, ingenuity and reliability.
Mark enjoys the transformation process and says the most enjoyable part of the build is the customer’s reaction when they peer into their newly minted addition, kitchen, bathroom, deck or other custom projects.
Chris developed a passion for the trade at an early age and has perfected his craft after more than 15 years in the business.
Chris has experience in most forms of construction from commercial, residential, kitchens, and bathrooms and can see any project you can think up through to its completion.
Chris does not believe in anything less than excellence, and strives to make every part of the building process enjoyable and rewarding. From the initial design, to overseeing each step of construction, Chris is involved in every part of the building process. This continued involvement continues to inspire him with each new project he encounters.
Read what some of our fantastic customers have to say!
Commonwealth Construction did an amazing job renovating our kitchen, dining room and stairway which included changing the layout of our kitchen and removing part of a wall to expose the stairway. Mark, Chris, and the team were knowledgeable and professional, helping bring our ideas together into a concept and layout that we couldn’t be happier with. Mark & Chris were always very responsive and provided updates on the schedule which stayed on track with initial estimates. My father, who had been in the construction business, is a perfectionist and consistently commented on how great a job they were doing and has since recommended Commonwealth to others. Following the completion of the first job, we hired Commonwealth to replace 10 windows and a doorway in our sunroom and similar to the kitchen renovation, we are very happy with the results. We would absolutely hire Commonwealth again!
I have nothing but the absolute highest praise for Mark and Chris and their outstanding crew at Commonwealth Construction & Design, LLC. They exceeded all of my expectations as they build a beautiful custom deck for my home. Working with Mark and Chris was a breath of fresh air. Mark responded extremely quickly to any and all of my texts or emails. Everyone at Commonwealth Construction and Design showed the utmost respect for their client’s time with clear, honest and very accurate communication–there was no guessing or wondering what my deck would look like or how long it would take, Mark was an exceptional communicator. The professionalism, cleanliness and responsibility they showed while working on property was amazing–I hardly knew they were building outside my back door! They were quiet, unobtrusive, and very respectful of us and the property. The deck itself is a masterpiece. Chris has an artist’s eye and was so helpful with his suggestions as far as material, color and use of space–he is truly a construction visionary! They were even able to construct a custom swing gate to help with our dogs, and it is the envy of the neighborhood! I am so thrilled with our gorgeous deck and outdoor space. I can’t say enough about Mark and Chris–they would be the only construction company I would use for any custom home projects.
I was looking for someone to finish off my dark, cobwebby basement which hadn’t ever been improved. Commonwealth Construction came in and did an amazing job! My downstairs went from being an area I avoided to my favorite part of the house. Mark and Chris were professional, available whenever I had questions, and did beautiful custom carpentry for me. They were prompt and courteous and had great suggestions for the project. I appreciated that they were always on time and left the finished project spotless. I would recommend them wholeheartedly!
“I lucked out with these guys.” I was ready to have the front of my home refaced with new windows, doors and clapboard. I gave them my somewhat of a budget that they were able to work with and Mark and Chris drafted a detail quote. Any time I had a question, they text or phoned me in a timely manner. They did the work for me and I’ll have to say that their work is impeccable. Nice friendly guys. I would recommend them in a heart beat.
During a time when home improvement contractors have been extremely busy, it was reassuring to work with your team because every call we made was answered quickly and politely – which might sound like a requirement but anyone who has worked with other contractor’s might know this not to be the case. It’s sometimes hard to even get a call back. Most importantly, the quality of your work was great, and while living in our home during a major kitchen renovation, you guys managed to keep everything very clean on a daily basis and we appreciated that.
After having 10+ contractors either never answer or ghost us after the first call, my wife and I couldn’t be happier we found Chris and Mark to do the work for our three season porch. From start to finish, they were incredibly responsive with the status of the project and expertly accommodated minor design changes as it moved along. Ultimately, we now have a porch that everyone who walks in comments on how amazing it looks. Looking forward to using the guys again when it comes time for our next project – we can’t recommend them enough!
“My wife and I needed a local contractor to refinish our basement, and were referred to Chris from a previous contractor we worked with, and regarded him and his team highly for the job. From our first encounter with Chris, we immediately knew he was going to be the best person for the job! He pointed out design recommendations which we would have never thought about, and fell in love with them in the end. Chris and his partner Mark were exceptional to work with, and kept us well informed about the construction stages, from beginning to end. I was really impressed with the whole team from Commonwealth Construction, and will use them down the road for sure on any future projects. Thank you very much for such an amazing job! “
In this crazy housing market I needed a way to expand my living space with a baby on the way. I had a vision for a finished basement and it turned out Commonwealth Construction was the perfect team to make that vision a reality. Being in the building construction industry myself, I was probably a bit more involved in the project than a typical customer. Commonwealth took that in stride and continued to impress me throughout the duration of the job. Their communication is excellent, and most importantly they treat your home with respect. At the end of every day, when I would check in on the progress, I’d find a clean and organized space. This approach represents every aspect of how they run their business. I could not be happier with the finished product. I would recommend Commonwealth Construction to anyone, and look forward to working with them again in the future.
Commonwealth Construction & Design replaced our small, worn down deck, with a beautiful new one that is now the best feature of hour home! The Commonwealth team was great to work with, they listened to everything we wanted and built us the perfect deck to meet our needs. We are so happy with the quality of the work they did and would highly recommend them!
