With over two decades of experience, Mark Duval can assist you with the entire lifecycle of your building project, beginning with initial planning and decision-making. His work covers a wide variety of home and commercial building projects, from simple renovation and repairs, on through to acting as the lead general contractor for new home construction.


Mark Duval stands behind all of his work. As a licensed contractor, Mark fully guarantees his work against design defects, leaks, or any other post-construction issues. He maintains a full level of support following the completion of your home construction or renovation project to insure your satisfaction.


Mark specializes in retaining the integrity of a home or building’s existing character when carrying out renovations, additions, or upgrades. This is important for Cape Ann homes, since most homes in the region are of antique, colonial, or traditional building styles. This has value not only for aesthetic reasons, but also for enhancing the building quality of an existing home. When practical Mark emphasizes the use of natural materials, such as cedar siding or oak trim, thus blending in with the existing design elements of your home.


In regard to working with your budget, Mark devotes special attention to providing you with a transparent running account of the construction costs as work proceeds. There are no surprises when working with Mark, he guarantees an ongoing, up-front assessment of a project’s budget.
