Our Mission is to provide unparalleled customer satisfaction through innovative solutions, excellent service, and professional teamwork within the construction industry.
Mark DeJong was born in Minnesota, raised in South Africa, and grew up in a multi-generational construction family. Family and friends often called him his father’s shadow, as he tagged along on construction sites. Therefore, it became natural for him to begin building and remodeling projects at an early age. With youthful skill and determination, he started DeJong Home Improvement in North Carolina at the age of 18.
Remaining faithful to our heritage, has allowed us to rise to the challenge of today’s economy in the construction industry and succeed.
Upon relocating to Southwest Florida in 1983, he pursued his State Certification, first as a Residential Contractor, and later as a General Contractor. Along the way, the company name evolved into Mark DeJong Builders Inc., and was incorporated in 1997.
Mark and his wife have called Manatee County home for the past 30 years, raising their two daughters here and establishing strong relationships both in the local community and in the construction industry.
As Mark DeJong Builders Inc. has grown, our staff and team members, with their unique talents and diversity of experience, has become a group of professionals ready to provide our clients with the best construction experience possible.
Guided by our core values of team work, honesty, caring for others, and excellence in all we do, we work hard to make your project a reflection of you.
Over the past thirty-five years, we have had the privilege of working with clients who entrust us with the privilege of completing beautiful projects that reflect their unique tastes and personalities. In the process, lifelong relationships have been cultivated. Mark’s Dutch heritage is reflected in the exceptional craftsmanship and design of our projects, regardless of size. Incorporating integrity, solid building techniques, artistry, and innovation in all we do, helps us fulfill our goal of, “Excellence through Innovation”.
