Our customers, our neighbors, our community. That's why we care!

Quality & Committement to the Customer



We pride ourselves in our ability to approach all projects with the customer's needs in mind. We meet with our clients, listen to their needs and work with them to solve their problems within the defined budget and time parameters.

Design / Build


Many contractors will gladly provide free estimates, and we do as well. With large scale projects, such as an addition, or large interior remodel, Mares Contracting takes a design-build approach. We will provide an initial estimate based on typical building products and final finishes and fixtures. Once fully engaged with the client, we move to a detailed project budget phase, which includes several meetings with the client to define the specifics of the project and provide a 'fixed cost estimate' before we even drive the first nail. This includes detailed information on products, fixtures and finishes, and a set of drawings if applicable. This information is yours and you can now use it to allow contractors to bid competitively against the same project. This process protects your project from becoming a budgeting disaster, and also ensures your estimate is accurate. In the long run, this saves you money. The majority of contractors fail to execute this level of detail from the outset, instead either overshooting the estimate or resorting to asking for more money over and over during the project so they can finish. As our clients will attest, our goal is to make your project a positive experience as well as a quality finished product, resulting in a high level of value.



As a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS), we recognize the unique remodeling needs of a maturing population and can work with you to create solutions to transform your home into a safer, attractive, and more comfortable home to fit your abilities and lifestyle. We understand and are trained in the tools and resources available, common expenditures, codes and compliance, solutions to common barriers, as well as product offerings available to help you stay independent in your home both now and in the future.



Why not eat in style? Let our crew turn your kitchen into a showroom you will love! Kitchens are a great way to maximize your remodeling dollars for greatest return on your investment and enjoy the benefit of using your dream kitchen every day.



Whether repairing a rotten floor or creating your personal spa we are happy to make your wishes come true. We specialize in installing Schluter Systems, the latest technology in building supplies to create a water proof barrier between final finishes and their respective substructure, protecting your home for many years.

Exterior - Siding / Roofing / Doors / Windows


According to a recent study in Consumer Reports, 12% of readers who had their roof replaced reported leaks within five years of the job and even a larger percentage said they were unhappy with the overall quality of the installation. Exterior products are designed to protect your home for 20 years. Choosing the right installer is a critical step to ensure you receive the longest life and maximum energy reduction from your roof, siding, window and door installations.

Structural & Crawl Space Repairs

Structural & Crawl Space Repairs

By their very nature, crawl spaces are dark places. When you add high moisture content, conditions become ripe for the development of fungi, insect infestations, and wood rot. We provide substructure repairs to joists, sills, girders, band boards, sub-flooring, etc that have been damaged by termites, moisture and other issues. Our trained technicians can also assess your current crawl space conditions and recommend solutions to help prevent moisture problems. Keeping moisture in and under your home at acceptable levels goes a long way toward preserving the integrity of the structure and maintaining good air quality.

General Repair and Maintenance


Small jobs are welcome. From a leaking sink, rotten trim, or a door replacement, Mares Contracting deploys a repair crew outfitted with the right knowledge, tools and supplies to provide a quality expedited repair, saving you money.

We utilize the latest technology, including infrared inspections to pinpoint water and air leaks. We pride ourselves on our clean cut, professional, well spoken crew.
