"My husband and I loved working with Mark De Jong Builders. When looking for a contractor to restore our 1936 home it was important to us to find someone reliable, experienced, and most important, trustworthy since it was our first time renovating. I’m happy to say Mark and Ruth De Jong, and team, exceeded our expectations. The finished product is stunning, plus the work was finished on time and on budget. It’s now been three years of enjoying our home and my husband and I agree it was well worth the investment. Mark’s attention to detail and craftsmanship are evident to us and all who have visited our home. Ruth’s attention behind the scenes helped the project run smoothly, and I especially appreciated her encouragement throughout the process. Mark and Ruth are a talented team."
– Kate Thomas
"My husband and I spent over a year searching for our perfect home, with an old Florida custom feel, efficient layout and quality finishes. We found it with Mark De Jong’s project. The thought that went into this house is incredible from the Art Deco inspired trim work, the care of restoring and matching the heart of pine wood floors, and the ultimate focus to restore and renew while still maintaining the character of our home. It’s obvious that Mark takes great pride in his work!"
– Amanda Erben

“Mark DeJong Builders managed all the aspects of the remodel process, which made my job easier as a business owner. Mark and his team scheduled the contractors, managed the demolition and delivered a fast turnaround. Both long-time and new customers really enjoy the new look and layout our 10+ year old location.”
– Chris Thomas, Smoothie King, Lakewood Ranch
“Our business includes equipment that utilizes petroleum products such as engine oils, diesel fuel, and gasoline. These liquids had historically been stored and dispensed next to the facility with minimal coverage around the area. After discussions with our Insurance company, fire department, and environmental contractor, we determined a need to relocate these liquids a safer distance away from the facility. We initially investigated handling this project ourselves, but quickly determined that the scope of this type of project was well beyond our ability to effectively manage. Due to previous successful projects with Mark DeJong Builders Inc, I contacted Mark and discussed this project. We worked together to investigate several different options and then developed a project scope that achieved our goals. The selected project approach was an underground fuel storage facility located 50 feet from the building. This project then received approvals from all interested parties including government agencies. Once we had all the approvals in place, we launched the project with Mark DeJong Builders Inc as the General Contractor. Mark handled all the project details and coordination of sub-contractors involving us only when needed. The project was successfully completed in a timely manner and placed into service. We received an improved risk-score from our insurance company and all parties were pleased with the results. During the project, the interface with Mark Dejong Builders Inc was at a perfect level. Mark provided updates and met with us when needed, but for the most part the project was managed with minimal involvement on our side. When project issues would arise (as they always do on a project of this complexity), Mark would present us with all the options and together we would choose the best path forward. Once the project was successfully completed and the underground fuel storage facility was in use, Mark assured any follow-up questions were quickly addressed. Mark’s knowledge, attention to detail, and experience resulted in another successful project. Selection of Mark DeJong Builders Inc as our general contractor proved to be the right decision.”
– David Leadingham, ITW GSE
“It was an easy choice to hire Mark Dejong Builders! We were challenged to find a builder who could remodel our franchised salon within a very short period of time. We are open seven days a week and needed to have it completed as soon as possible. Within the first week after our initial conversation with Mark, he assessed our job, brought in all the subs to assess the job and had a detailed quote to us. Very impressive. What's more impressive is his organizational and communication skills. He had a time line created from start to finish so that everyone involved knew what was expected and when they were to be on the job. His attention to detail is unbelievable! We had a handful of changes and knew exactly what those additional costs would be too. We opened our doors on the day expected and we are elated with how the job turned out!”
– Michelle Kline, Fantastic Sams
“It required a leap of faith to purchase a virtually all-original condominium unit in a 50-year-old high-rise building. Mark De Jong Builders had the knowledge, talent, and experience to apply our vision and transform the unit into a beautiful, modern, and completely updated home. Mark and his staff took a highly collaborative approach to the process and were a pleasure to work with. Their work included changes to the floorplan, updated electric and plumbing, and a new kitchen, bathrooms, and flooring. They repeatedly demonstrated that they genuinely cared about our needs, and about providing a quality product. We are delighted with our newly remodeled home, and unhesitatingly recommend Mark De Jong Builders to our friends and neighbors.”
– Jim Haberman & Lisa Schmitt
“I want to take this opportunity to express my satisfaction with the renovation project you and your team completed for our office. Our need to double the size of our office within a certain window of time presented many challenges. Your ability to start the project on time, and finish early, allowed us to combine our offices with minimal disruption. From the start of the project, the partnership we were able to develop carried us through the design phase, with all its ups and downs, right through to demolition, construction, and final move-in. The project manager was in constant touch with us, was always available to provide assistance in solving problems, be they big or small, and always with a smile. Your management of the sub-contractors was superb, as was their workmanship. They were able to complete their work with minimal disruption to my staff or my clients. The documentation you provided, including project plans and change orders, was consistently well-documented. This allowed us to keep on top of all project and information in a timely and efficient manner. Overall, we are extremely satisfied with the project, your team, and the final result is something that we are continually proud to share with our clients.”
