"We hired Mark LaMar of LaMar Construction to take on our second story add-on (and remodel of 80% of the rest of the house) for our small 1950s ranch house in November 2011.   From the beginning, Mark and his crew impressed us with their professionalism and dedication to quality workmanship. 

Mark was extremely conscientious at every step of the way, communicating frequently with my husband and me, our architect, the city and other professionals to make sure that everyone was on the same page.   The subcontractors he hired did fine work, with one exception, and in that case, Mark made sure the problem was corrected quickly and without our having to request it. 

We wouldn’t expect a major construction project to proceed without delays or complications. However, any problems that came up were explained clearly and resolved quickly. We never felt that we had been left in the dark about anything.  This is unusual in the construction world, and Mark’s follow through and crew are a testament to that.  We couldn't be happier with the results, and strongly recommend LaMar Construction without reservation."

Chuck Geiger

“Mark did a phenomenal job building our house. He's a pleasure to work with and very detail oriented. In an industry where it's not always easy to find high quality people, Mark stands out.”

 “I hired Mark again to do an extension to our home and the results far exceeded my expectations. Mark did an exceptional job and over delivered. I highly recommend Mark and LaMar Construction.”

Kyrie Robinson

“I hired Mark to do a major tear down & rebuild of my home in Palo Alto. The old home was a 2BR cottage; the new home is 2 stories, 5BR 3.5BA. Mark is reliable & honest, completed the project in a timely manner, and overall did an excellent job. I'm a highly satisfied customer, and I've recommended him to several friends and family members already.”

Harrison Fong

“The model by which all construction people should adapt. Upfront communication, quality work, timliness, responsive to needs.”

Andi Jobe

 “I cannot recommend Mark high enough. He did a major construction on our Los Altos Hills home and we were pleased from start to finish. He was efficient, talented, responsible, reliable and honest. If I have any construction needs again, Mark will be at the head of my list to do the work. Hire him, you won't be sorry.

Denise Banholzer

“Mark LaMar and LaMar Construction was hired to add 500+ sq. feet to our current home. We were very pleased with the workmanship, cleanliness and timeliness LaMar Construction provided. Mark and all of his employees were very professional, honest and hard working. We would definitely recommend and also hire LaMar Construction in the future!”


Tom & Rosemary Tisch

“Mark LaMar came recommended to us, we compared him to others. He did a major bathroom remodel for us first (2001) and 3 years later we hired him again without getting competitive bids to do a kitchen remodel. He does high caliber work, fairly priced, uses reliable subcontractors, and is someone you can trust and work out the inevitable problems associated with remodels. We'd use him again.”


Ron Hills

“Mark is a trustworthy contractor with an eye for details and making sure a good job is done. Responsible, very responsive to owners comments and doesn't nickel/dime you with contract changes. Very much enjoyed working with his sub-contractors. Stays on the job, without drifting in/out other jobs and is sensitive to time and budget constraints. We have known others who have used him with very good results and they also recommend him.”


Fred & Sharon Andres

"It is a pleasure to recommend Mark Lamar, owner and operator of LaMar Construction. Mark was fully responsible for a major remodel of our home and we were extremely satisfied with every aspect of the remodel. This was not our first remodel so we are well aware of the myriad of problems that may occur during such an undertaking. ... We enthusiastically recommend Mark to anyone with construction needs and have recommended him without reservation to our friends."
Fred and Sharon Andres, Saratoga

Jay & Christine Harris

"This project took a long time to complete because there were so many elements to it. What truly impressed me was that you stuck with us to the very end, including making sure the final punch list was completed in a timely manner. I really value this because I've heard so many horror stories form friends who never got the final list completed with their contractors or who became bitter because they waited months for the final punch list to get done. It was a pleasure doing business with you and your company."
Jay and Christine Harris, Los Gatos

Cheri Johnson

"This letter is to recommend Mr. Mark LaMar for all aspects of residential construction, renovations, and remodeling. He has always been pleasant to work with, conscientious to detail and deadlines. He is cost smart and very well organized. His estimates are fair, his sub-contractor's professional and conscientious, but most of all he can be trusted to always keep the homeowner's interest first and foremost so one never has to worry about the unknown issues that often come up in the projects of this nature.

I certainly will continue to use LaMar and recommend his services always to friends and acquaintances needing this type of professional assistance."

Dan Marostica

"We would like to recommend him as a reliable and competent contractor for the following reasons. First Mark was willing to work with our designer and architect to successfully accomplish not only a pleasing design, but also satisfy building codes and practices Second, Mark was concerned about quality of work during the entire project. If we had any concerns about he jobs performed by subcontractors, he was able to resolve issues quickly and efficiently. Finally, we felt confident that we could discuss and resolve any issues, contact Mark at any time, and depend on him to respond quickly."



I have found Mark to be professional, honest, and conscientious. He works well with others (collaborated successfully with my interior decorator and his subcontractors). Mark has followed the job to completion, much to our satisfaction. I would highly endorse Mark LaMar as a general contractor."
