I have worked with Mongird Construction on large and small remodel jobs at my own home and most recently on an extensive remodel a duplex in Menlo Parl. Mark, the owner is very easy to work with and has an excellent crew working for him. Remodeling can be challenging for both the property owner and the contractor because of all the unknowns. From my experience no matter what the surprise Mark always keeps his cool. By now I think he has seen just about everything. I would recommend him if you are considering hiring a general contractor.

We have used Mark over the years for many projects and regretted it when we didn't!
They always let you know what's going on, finish in a timely manner and leave the place clean.
No job is too small or too big - that is not always easy to find.

We used Mark and his crew for a couple of projects. We were happy with the quality of the workmanship and we recommend him to others. Work was done on time and on budget.

We've used Mark and his crew for several projects, from re-doing work of a unscrupulous contractor we wish we'd never hired for a major remodel, to replacing leaking pipes underneath our house, to a recent bathroom remodel. In all instances Mark was easily accessible, gave us a fair bid, did the work on time (if not early) and within budget. The things I most appreciate about Mark: he's fair, honest, trusting and trustworthy; he suggests ways to keep our costs down since that's been a high priority for us; his crews pick up after themselves and always leave the work place clean at the end of the day; and he's clearly in the business for the long-haul, never making recommendations that might have a short-term gain but we might regret down the road. I have nothing but the highest regard for Mark and his staff/crew, and we're now talking with him about a kitchen remodel.

We have worked with Mark and his crew for over 15 years, on a myriad of projects. We have watched each others kids grow up (and dogs) and have always been impressed with the integrity and reliability of his company, his support staff and his workers. Our projects have never been without surprises - and we have been able to design and complete projects in an innovative way! Mark's vast experiences and network of competent subcontractors is a huge value add to his business!

We've used Mongird Construction on several projects -- we did a major redo of several rooms and a bathroom, and everything turned out exactly as we'd hoped. They were on time, on budget, and minimized the disruption of this project.

Their staff are always courteous and professional. And Mark and his team in the office are very helpful as well.

Once we completed the major project, we've hired them again for nearly all of our smaller projects as well. We are very glad to have found them.

I first learned of Mongird Construction through a friend of ours, who had a couple of projects done by Mark in the past. My wife and I interviewed several different contractors and Mark stood out for a number of reasons. He was more thorough than others in his assessment of the work involved. Mark was also very patient and more than willing to come over repeatedly (we had not signed a contract with him at that time) to go over some new details my wife and I dreamt up. And finally, Mark was very open about his costs and would break the project down into pieces which no other contractor was willing to do.

Our project consisted of tearing down our house to the frame, adding on a couple of new sections and rebuilding everything from scratch. Once the project got underway, we found Mark's crew to be punctual, clean, trustworthy and very hard-working. The guys worked full days and would come in on Saturdays too. They felt like part of the family. In addition, our foreman, Marek, was great. He's very experienced and really able to think 'out-of-the-box'. Whenever some sort of insurmountable problems occurred, Marek would usually come up with a solution when we ourselves definitely did not see one. Anyone who has gone through a remodeling project knows that unexpected issues will occur.

The estimated duration of the tear down and rebuild was accurate. The costs of the project didn't exceed the initial estimates. Any overruns were due to our own tweaks and upgrades as the build went along.

Mark and his office crew are great. The ability to reach Mark and the communication with him was excellent. Phone, email, visits - whatever it took. Everyone continued to be very supportive throughout the whole process. They provided us with a lot of advice about materials and vendors. In particular, Judy, the office manager, was fantastic. She really helped coordinate all of our efforts together.

We are really pleased with how our house turned out. The design is great and the house is very well-built. Thumbs up all the way around!

I highly recommend Mongird Construction. I've had experience with several different general contractors on a variety of small to medium size home remodeling projects, and Mongird is one of the best. Mark and his staff are low key but competent and efficient, which is a very effective combination. They remodeled a bathroom, removing the old shower and floor, fixing the faulty plumbing/shower installation that had been leaking for years into the subfloor, repairing all the dry rot, and installing a new tiled shower and floor. The tiling subcontractor was a real craftsman, he did an outstandingly meticulous and neat job. The job site was cleaned up each day, and even the demolition, which is always a messy business, was quickly tidied up. Mark kept the project mostly on schedule and within budget, and was very creative about compensating for what schedule slippage there was- a temporary shower curtain wound up being installed so we could use the new bathroom over the holidays while we waited for the glass doors to be delivered. Overall the entire project was extremely successful. I was so impressed that I'm hiring them again to replace some windows.

Mongird Construction was chosen for our home remodel because Mark Mongird had a successful, verifiable track record. As we planned our remodel, it was like a stale piece of bubble gum: the more we chewed the bigger it got. It ultimately included the extension of the kitchen and a major remodel, raising the sunken living room floor, new slate flooring in the entryway and the family room, hardwood floors in the living room and dining room, removal of the popcorn ceilings, smoothing the plaster on all walls, new lighting everywhere, remodeling a bathroom, and finally a new deck with an outdoor kitchen. Mark and his crew handled all in the planned timeframe, and I don??t believe we had a single costly change order in the lot.

While roadblocks occurred during the construction phase, all were handled with ease and made us even happier customer-clients. We ordered an expensive chandelier for the dining room that had a slanted ceiling. The base of the chandelier was designed for a flat ceiling. A big meeting between the contractor, the designer and us resulted in no decent plan. Marek, the foreman, came to the rescue. He thought outside the box and meticulously cut the stainless base to work on the diagonal ceiling and even had room for the transformer. All of Mark??s crew were excellent at their respective jobs and were ??good people besides?. If we ever have additional work to be performed around our house, I will hire Mark Mongird without hesitation.

Mongird has helped us with a couple of construction projects in our house. We were thrilled with everyone we met on their team. Both Mark Mongird, and his office manager, Judy - are easily accessible and give realistic time frame and price quotes. Both are very friendly, honest, and offer sound advice. The contractors are outstanding - we found each person who worked on our house to be professional, friendly, knowledgeable and hardworking. Mark Mongird is in close contact with everyone on his team, and is often present making sure the customer is satisfied. We have other projects that we want done - and we will definitely turn to Mongird Construction for their help.

I kid-you-not, our major remodel project was finished 6 weeks ahead of shedule (4.5 months instead of 6) and slightly under budget. Mark Mongird was easy to work with and consistently made suggestions for cutting cost. Our project involved lifting the house, remodeling existing structure and adding new construction. All was executed very well. His crew is on time, very hard working, thoughtful, trustworthy, and experienced. I recommend them for any project-- big or small. We will turn to them for any future construction needs.

Mongird Construction renovated a main bathroom for us in November 2006. They did an excellent job and I felt very comfortable working with the owner and his employees. We got several bids for the job, and Mongird came in at about the middle. The job took 3 months (they gutted the bathroom to the studs) which seems like a long time, but I had no complaints. I would recommend Mongird Construction.

Mark and his team did a great job on our kitchen/family room model. They turned 4 rooms into one big kitchen/family room, installed new furnaces, replaced the old electrical system and upgraded some plumbing as well. The workers and the office staff were always responsive and helpful. The project was completed in a timely manner. The craftsmanship was superb as well. We have since also had them remodel a bathroom for us. I highly recommend them.

About 2 years ago we had Mongird construction dig out our crawlspace and build us a 625sq ft. family room. It was serious work, involving the rebuilding of the foundation while supporting the rest of the house. Mark and company did a wonderful job. And when we have had questions (even 1 year after the work was complete) Mark cheerfully came by to have a look. The price was very reasonable, comparing his bid to others, and his billing practice was very fair. In general, we got a genuine feeling of honesty, and a desire to do quality work from Mark, Marek and his crew. If we had some project in the future we wouldn't hesitate to use him again!

We met with several contractors to get bids, and Mark's was by far the best! The best part was he didn't seem desperate to get the job. And everything was calm and peaceful. No pressure, and anything could be done. The work started right away, finished ahead of schedule and very close to the budget. Marek, the foreman was a terrific carpenter and a very hard worker. Judy in the office was very nice and helped keep things organized and moving along. We are so happy we are going on with our second bathroom and the kitchen after that. Can't say enough good things about Mark Mongird and his crew.
