  We hired Mark Ellis in February 2011 to replace the flooring in our kitchen.  We had decided on ceramic tile which he installed impeccably.  He also repaired the plaster on the ceiling and walls.  During the course of the renovation, Mark had many creative ideas regarding paint colors, using multiple colors in the room to compliment the surrounding rooms and also accent pieces/hardware to give the room a uniform look.   We are entirely pleased and satisfied with the work Mark did for us.

City Code corrections to 83 year old home

Our dealings with Ellis Builders have been memorable and productive.  Mark Ellis and his crew have been able to address and correct major city code problems in our 83 year old Historical Society House used by medical students to ensure its sustainability and safety. We regularly seek his advice on safety, maintenance, repair and capital improvement issues.

Outstanding Construction

It is with great pleasure that I write this blog for the outstanding construction work I have received from Mark Ellis Construction over the past 15 years. His company is by far the best andMark is a consummate professional, skilled and highly professional, bold because he knows his industry, butunderstanding of his customers’ needs.  His commitment to completing the job thoroughly and successfully is superior and he isattentive to every detailof the job at hand and because of his commitment he expects nothing less from his crew.

100 year old home

Mark Ellis not only created amagnificent custom built bookcasein my house, but blended it seamlessly into our 100 year old home, so much so that others believe it's original to our home.  He kept our house clean, didn't mind periodic interventions from our pets and kids, andwas done on time and on budget.  Additionally, he's done all kinds of other jobs at our house,earning our trustsuch that I'm comfortable calling Mark and asking him to pop over and fix something while I'm at work.


Mark Ellis and his crew performed a number of projects at our sorority.  He repaired and repainted walls and the ceiling in the living room after another carpenter and his helper did a terrible job.  He came on short notice and cleaned out some drains that were clogged, and also did some caulking in two bathrooms.  He worked on the front door and made it close properly.  He performed other repair jobs that we needed done, and always did what he said he would do, in a timely manner.

Home remodeling

Ellis Builders has done the following for my home.  Meticulous plaster repair, prep, and paint of numerous rooms in 80 year old house. Also did beautiful custom-install of a reclaimed, antique, leaded-glass, exterior door. Also build custom screen doors and repaired/replaced rotting exterior wood trim and window sills.

Attention to detail, of course, takes time so the projects went slightly over deadline, but the final result was high quality work at very reasonable cost. Mark Ellis was very pleasant to work with.
