I really hate to write this about anyone's business, but I had such a bad experience with my remodel. Please be warned that Marius cannot be trusted and does not live up to his promises.
I recently called Marius for deck repairs. He sent out Gabrial Rus, but assured me that Modern Marvels would be doing the work. Since they had done work for my daughter, I agreed. It was a nightmare... from the beginning. The deck boards installed were improperly spaced, with irregular spacings between boards, support beams installed were not level, causing a "wavey" up and down appearence. The work on the deck steps were awful. I called and e-mailed Marius numerus Times but got no response. I finally fired Gabrial, and now I am having to re-do all the work Modern Marvels performed, at substantial extra cost. Beware of this Contractor!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

My wife and I hired Marius to do some work on our house (wall framing, hanging doors, building closets, wiring, painting). We were very pleased with his work, so when we moved to another house and had some additional projects, we were willing to wait until he was available. Marius is fair, honest, talented and hard working. He's also really smart, practical, and has an eye for design and pays attention to detail.

I cannot say enough good things about Marius and his crew. They're all extremely professional and respectful, deliver an incredible product in a very timely manner, and now these shelves/cabinets have become the focal point of the room - very high quality! Can't wait 'til the next project - THANKS MARIUS!

It took a few months to this work scheduled and completed but it was well worth the wait. Marius takes care of everything and I did not need to bring anyone else in. New hardwood floors, new cabinets, awesome new kitchen island, and a new shower out of this world. I could not be happier with the work and the end result. The guys were all very pleasant and respectful during the job. Thanks Marius and crew!

Had a problem with one section of a wall in my unfinished basement showing signs of water running on it. I had no idea how to track this down. Marius came out and figured the problem out in less than 15 minutes and had it repaired that morning. He's a pleasure to do business with. Professional, does good work, and very reasonably priced!

Marius Tudor did a super job remodeling our basement. The work required a variety of skills, and he has them all: sheetrock installation, extending walls, adding electrical outlets, installing recessed and track lights, lots of trim details, painting, minor repairs, and hanging doors. He paid careful attention to detail and added design insight and advice. The people he hired to assist him also did a great job, and they worked diligently and without supervision. We are pleased with the final result, and we would definitely hire Modern Marvels again.

I had Marius and his crew do some framing work that involved load-bearing walls. I was nervous about safety and being "done right", especially as MM's price was quite reasonable. They worked with an engineer to ensure the solution was safe and to-code; finished the work very quickly; and even did some extra items that they weren't required to do. When you ask Marius about a project, he doesn't give you a from-the-hip answer, but really examines your needs and provides alternate solutions.

I would highly recommend Modern Marvels. They found the problem areas, gave me good advice, and made a very good job of what had to be done and in addition, with great good humor, and did all the little things I had not previously though of. Let me tell you I was looking for one contractor who can do lots of projects and finally I found one. They do it all and in very professional manner. At last I didn't have to call ten different contractors to do plumbing, electrical, sheet rock, painting, tile, carpentry and many more in the process of renovation my basement. They are honest, kind and hard working. If you have something that needs to be done in your house just call them - you will never regret hiring them. I looking forward to enjoying the wonderful workmanship of Modern Marvels, and would not hesitate in the least to recommend Marius and his staff. Scott

Marius of Modern Marvels recently repaired the damage to our roof and garage that was caused by a fallen tree. Marius is very professional, knowledgeable, and customer oriented. He will work with you on prices and he will make suggestions and point out areas of concern. Our insurance inspector's estimate included 2x4 joists; Marius upgraded the joists to 2x6 without additional cost to us. Marius also worked with us on the additional damages found that was not part of our insurance claim. In addition, his workers always cleaned the area at the end of the day. Modern Marvels is highly recommended!!!!!

New(ish) to the area and unable to obtain referrals from neighbors, we took a chance after reading reviews on Kudzu.com of local businesses, and hired Marius to combine our living and family rooms into one great room. Great is an understatement of the result! First of all, he did what two other contractors said was impossible - installing two 60" windows where previously no windows existed. Next, we were able to extend existing hardwood flooring into the remodeled room, with a perfect match. After removing a load-bearing wall, transforming a stippled ceiling to smooth, wiring our surround-sound stereo and tv cables into the walls, and installing new recessed lighting and a ceiling fan, our home feels like new. Marius is always attentive to detail, and had many creative design ideas/suggestions, which we welcomed. We work from home, and did not have to leave our office for an alternate location, even on heavy construction days. We never, ever had dust/dirt spilling out of the construction zone; in fact, we were very pleasantly surprised by the thorough clean-up each day. We are extremely pleased with the result, and will call Modern Marvels when we decide to work on another part of our 30-year-old home.

I looked everywhere for contractors, and was promised many things that were not possible. Marius took one look at my project and knew just what to do. He completed my French doors within three days. And did and awesome job. My next project I know that I don't have to call around. I have a reliable company.
