When we decided to begin buiding spec homes in St Augustine, we were faced with a significantly critical task; to find a builder known for not only high-quality output but also known for high integrity. This was, of course, in addition to the standard desire of wanting a fair price. I am happy to say that we found all of the above with Shoreland Construction! Even though my partners and I were novices in this arena, with Kevin's help and prowess (and tremendous patience!), we were able to produce a product that not only received many accolades, we sold it just 2 months after it was completed...in the slowest time of the season for real estate! I continue to refer Kevin Marks to all of my friends and customers with confidence and we're excited to be starting on house number 2 now! Thanks again Kevin!

Shoreland Construction is one of the most trusting and dependable businesses that I have had the pleasure to work with. They came in to finish our house after we fired our original shady contractor(D&J McDaniel Construction). It wasn't easy coming in behind a contractor that had done such a terrible job, but every step of the way, Shoreland was wonderful. They stayed in constant communication with us and always asked us what our thoughts and needs were. Shoreland was never forceful in making any decision. If you want a construction business that sticks to their word, Shoreland Construction is the builder for you.

We had several projects at once - gutter repair/install, cabinet work to create a laundry center, put a new doorway in, frame and enclose an existing doorway, and moving a bar from inside the home to the Florida room. So we had it all - electrical, plumbing, framing, cabinets... Quality workmanship has been hard to find in St. Augustine. We've used several contractors and 'handy man' services, - our house was built in 1880's - but all were lacking quality and professionalism. We got the quality we wanted, but didn't have to pay a premium price to get it. The crew were friendly and cleaned up after themselves daily. The only item that keeps them from a 5-star rating is one of the subs (gutter work) was difficult to schedule due to the amount of work he had on his plate. I highly recommend Kevin and crew. A fair price (I didn't say inexpensive), for a high quality and professional product.

Kevin Marks and his crews are all extremely easy to work with and quite pleasant. all are very talented at their particular craft. his prices are quite reasonable. he fabricated a dry bar cabinet for us that matches our kitchen cabinets to a tee. We've used him twice in a couple of months and we keep adding on. his attention to detail and expedience are top notch!
Kevin and his crew are great, I highly recommend them. They have done work for me more than once and I am always totally satisfied with the word performed and the cost analysis.
Kevin Marks and his team worked with me to complete a full remodel of my condo. Not new to remodeling, I was so pleasantly surprised that the process was actually enjoyable - due entirely to Kevin's attention to detail; thorough and professional bid presentation and his knack for troubleshooting. I trusted him and his team to enter my property as needed and they never let me down. Kevin even personally met with several of my somewhat persnickety neighbors to provide advance notice of the upcoming work. The end result is pretty much flawless. Character, quality and a conscientious individual. Highly recommend!
I have a 120 year old home so during my ownership I have dealt with a lot of contractors. No more, Kevin Marks and Shoreland are the only contractors I will use from now on. The last job they did came in on time, budget and his crew was exceedingly respectful of my home and neighborhood. I almost hate recommending them cause I want to keep them to myself. Nancy
Shoreland Construction renewed my faith in contractors. They made sure we were happy, no questions asked. I would recommend them to my friends and family in a heartbeat. If you want a hassle free job done, these are the guys for it.

Kevin was wonderful to work with. We had a very challenging remodel and it required some real "hands on" expertise. We was willing to let us do some of the demolishing ourselves which was what we wanted. We were in a high profile area where everyone in the community watched our "Big, Fat Renovation" and all were awed by the transformation of a 1920's house with 1960's and 1980's additions become the talk of the neighborhood. The only set-back was with a stucco sub-contractor and Kevin ended up "riding herd" over them until it was finished. I have recommended Shoreland Construction to friends and neighbors doing renovations and will continue to do so.

I would highly recommend Shoreland Construction, operated by Kevin Marks, for any new construction or renovation project. He is so pleasant to deal with and from planning and permits to the final inspections, he was always available for consultation. He participated in some of the construction work as well as the supervision. We had our home in Davis Shores, St Augustine Florida stripped down to the concrete walls and completely renovated, with an extension of the wall and roof height and a 600 square foot addition. We are very pleased with the result. All of Kevin's subcontractors speak very highly of him. As with any construction project, one should keep on top of things, ask questions, compare prices. I do not believe you are going to find a more honest or reliable contractor than Kevin Marks. People drive by and the compliments keep coming. Thanks, Kevin, from Glenn and Mercedes Fournier

Shoreland construction did a major renovation of my 1910 house in Lincolnville, St Augustine in 2011. The job was completed within the budget and on time. As an architect, I appreciated the attention to detail and the willingness to solve problems creatively as they occurred without major cost increases.The crew had a very sympathetic view of renovating an old house which showed in the end result. The renovation included structural work, a new kitchen, bathroom, stair, windows,french doors,floors, deck and swimming pool. All the work was coordinated by Shoreland. I would highly recommend this contractor.

I have used this company 2 times, one was a small job and other a complete house make over. No job is too small and no job to big. This company finished on time and the work was great. I would call Shoreland Construction for my next project. L.L.L>

Shoreland has done all of my repairs and rennovations. The work is top quality but most importantly the principal is a contractor you can trust. That is the hardest thing to find these days. He is true to his word and does what he says he is going to do.
