We purchased a house in Liberty, Maine between Augusta and Belfast in the summer of 2007 and we live in Maryland. During the winter a pipe burst and the house suffered extensive water damage. Our insurance company would cover the damage, however, we live five states away. MKM Construction prepared the cost estimate and negotiated with the insurance company sending pictures of damage and written reports. During this process, Mike was in constant contact with us by phone. First, the house had to be completely dried and checked for mold. Carpet in the bedroom was removed and new carpet installed. Wet wallboard was torn out and replaced, primed and painted in the kitchen, living area and downstairs bedroom. In addition he suggested and made improvements such as: updated trim in the living area, hand made shelves in the pantry and devised a beautiful hand made arch to separate the kitchen from the living area. Mike also sent us pictures of the progress to keep us updated. Throughout the process, it was clear he had & was acting in our best interest. When we returned to Maine in June the house was in move in condition. Since then Mike has put up chair railing, installed a new entry door and is in the process of installing a screened room on our deck. We couldn't be more pleased.
