We cannot begin to say how happy we are with our experience with Dave Mark Construction. Dave was amazing and went out of his way to assist us through the building process. It’s natural to have some anxiety as a customer to go thru the building process, especially starting our talks in Texas and building during a pandemic, but Dave always kept us informed and explained the process well. Dave has gone above and beyond with giving guidance, answering questions, and just making the building process stress free and exciting. Thank you for always taking my call at all hours of the day and thanks for being patient with us as customers. I would highly recommend Dave Mark Construction to anyone looking to build a new home. You will be 100% satisfied with your decision!

We feel we have climbed a mountain together with you and now stand at the mountain top – the result you have achieved is truly impressive.”

“We never expected to build a house, never thought we could find a builder who we could trust not only in their pricing but in their business ethics.  We found this all with Dave Mark.  Every step was easy AND enjoyable!  Dave was beyond helpful with suggestions, being both honest and practical.  Dave communicated with us frequently and always kept us up to date with each stage of the building process as well as updating us on any of our selections.

Dave’s subcontractors proved to be the hardworking reliable individuals that you would hope to have building your dream home and they ALL highly respect Dave, which speaks volumes about Dave’s work ethic as well as his personality.

Everyone always says building a home is one of the hardest things to do, but we loved building with Dave Mark, who not only was our builder but became a friend.

-Heidi M.

“Buying your first house can be challenging on it’s own, but building your first house is even more challenging. With dave he made it fun and exciting. From the moment we sat down with him to discuss our plan we knew from the way he presented himself how focused he was with making sure that everything that was discussed is what was in our best interest. Throughout the building process we were contacted regularly with updates about our home, and what we could expect for the next week following. He was very transparent with everything and never sugar coated anything. Gave us his thoughts and opinions and made sure it was all up to his standards. He also introduced us to his sub contractors, which without saying were just as interested with perfecting what they did with our house as much as Dave did. He pays attention to the small things that you wouldn’t otherwise think of. There are several people who build ‘houses’ for people, but we honestly feel like Dave Mark is one of the only ones who could have built us a ‘home'”

We interviewed several builders before deciding to partner with Dave Mark Construction. All of the builders we met with had excellent reputations and successful businesses. However, when we tourd homes that Dave Mark had built, and spoke with the homeowners, we noticed that they had a genuine respect for Dave. In the end, the relationship that Dave maintained with his past customers, and his competitive pricing, set him apart from the competition. Throughout the building process, Dave shared his past experiences with us in order to help us make informed decisions. There were several times during construction that Dave recommended changes to our design that made our home more attractive or more functional. Throughout the project, Dave stressed that he wanted us to be happy with our finished product. More importantly, he backed those words up with untiring effort. It was not uncommon to find Dave working at our house late at night. His explanation was that he wanted to make sure everything was done according to his standards. Now that we have lived in our home for five months, my family is pleased to share that we are definitely happy with our finished product! If we could go back in time and start the process over again, my family would definitely stick with Dave Mark!

Look no further! In 2011 my husband and I made the decision to build. After considering three custom home builders in the area, we decided on Dave Mark Construction, for many reasons … the quality and design of his homes were unmatched, his obvious attention to detail, but more importantly – Dave himself. Dave was more than our builder … he was someone we gtrusted, someone we knew would invest just as much time into the details of our home as us and throughout the process we saw just that. His crew was fantastic too! Great guys who again, cared about the work they were doing. If you’re looking for a builder who ‘gets his hands dirty’ and will work with you to truly build and create your DREAM home, then Dave’s your guy. He’s real, he cares and will go out of his way, day and night, to make sure you get the home you’ve always dreamed! We would recommend Dave to anyone. Our building process was flawless, no delays and we were in our home when promised! Every day my husband and I walk through our home and think ‘wow, is this really our house?’ It’s everything we dreamed and more!

Dave was recommended for a house I was planning to build in 2000. I had built three houses in the past 30 years with less than favorable results, but building was a great experience. He uses top quality subs and materials. He was always on time for meetings and returned all our calls. The house was done on time and we love it. Dave’s service is great as well. About five years after the house was built, a small problem came up. I called Dave – he was out the next day and fixed it. I was impressed. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone contemplating building a new house.

Dave, we can never say thank you enough or praise you and your workers enough for the wonderful job you did on our home. This experience was amazing and you made it so easy to work with you! From keeping the job site clean to moving a few boxes while we moved, everyone was kind and professional. We LOVE our new home … so again, thank you!”

– Vern & Jessica G.

Dear Dave, We wish to express our extreme gratitude for the quality and esthetic structure for our comfort. You have lived up to our expectations in every fashion. We especially appreciate the detail exhibited in every area. Your subs and suppliers are very kind in every way. You are a very caring and concerned person. Thanks, Dave, for a job well done!”

In 2005 my wife and I decided to build a new home. She wanted a spacious ranch style with an open theme and extra bedrooms on the main level for when our grandchildren came to spend the night. We began the process by having house plans drawn up by a firm so we could take them to three local builders of custom homes. We ultimately chose Dave Mark Construction because of his reputation and his willingness to work very closely with us. He even ‘tweaked’ our original drawings and recommended some changes that we absolutely love! We have now been in our home for 3 years and can hardly believe that Dave Mark calls us periodically to see if everything is still fine. Building a new home can sometimes be a very stressful ordeal but Dave Mark made it a fun adventure. We are very proud of our home and would highly recommend Dave Mark to anyone who is interested in building a new home. Should you have any questions I can be reached at my office, 574-294-7595

Dave worked with us to create the type of home that fits our lifestyle. During construction, Dave was always available to address our questions or concerns with innovative solutions. He made us feel as if we were his top priority. Our home turned out beautifully and daily we thoroughly enjoy it. We highly recommend Dave Mark Construction as your partner for your new home construction.

When my wife and I started looking for a builder, we researched Elkhart and St. Joseph County at length. Based on our research, we identified a select few quality builders to build our custom home. Dave Mark Construction is a high-integrity builder who builds a high quality home. What separates Dave Mark Construction from the rest is the personalization he provides. He goes the extra mile to ensure you are getting the look, design and detail you are wanting in your future home. He makes the process from the plans to the final walk through an extremely smooth experience and maintains excellent communication throughout the construction of your home. He builds your home as if he was going to live there himself. Dave provides quality standards like waterproofing and drainage in the basement that are not required. He builds a home that will last the test of time.

Building our new home with Dave Mark Construction was a wonderful experience, and we had so much fun doing it! Dave’s attention to detail far exceeded our expectations. Thank you Dave for making our dreams come true!

– Paul & Pam B.

Building a new home is full of daily decisions. We found having an experienced builder tremendously helped in that decision-making process. From the design and layout of the home to the proper placement of cabinets, Dave Mark Construction was always there with innovative ideas and suggestions. Giving us the proper upfront guidance in selecting our ‘allowance’ items, like floor coverings and cabinets, we were happy to end on budget with no shocking discrepancies. The subcontractors knew what Dave expected of them and worked together well, leaving virtually no gaps in the schedule. We also found many items included in the base price of our home would have been an upgrade with other builders. If quality and professionalism along with a competitive pricing is what you are looking for, we would be happy to refer Dave Mark Construction.

– Kevin & Robin C.

Dave Mark followed through on everything he said he would do and in most cases, exceeded our expectations. His ideas helped us to create our dream home. We truly could not be happier with our choice of builder and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to build a new home.

– Mike & Tracy V.

Building a new home can be an extremely stressful experience with the wrong builder. With a professional and experienced builder, however, it can become exciting and fun. That’s what we found with Dave Mark Construction. Dave was always so on top of the every-day problems and stresses that go along with building a home; we never had to worry about it. Even when it came to the choices that we were supposed to make, Dave was willing to go above and beyond his responsibilities and help us with ours. He helped us with design ideas and made sure we were making quality choices while staying within our ‘allowances’. We appreciated that he kept us very involved in the whole process and let us know what to expect from day to day. We feel that Dave Mark is an exceptional builder demanding only top quality work from his contractors while incorporating that personal touch that you just don’t get with a lot of builders. No one will ever go wrong choosing Dave Mark Construction.
