Fabulous roof replacement job and a good price! I got 6 bids and Mark was the only roofer that saw a couple of issues the other guys missed--he is thorough! Mark was not the absolute lowest price but he saved me over 30% from the top bid. ~Larry S.
If you are still in doubt, he gives you a huge list (hundreds?) of former customers for references, and he's been in business for I believe around 30 years, you can't be in business that long without being good at what you do. By the way, I have already recommended him to my parents for their roof. Thanks Mark! ~Gee Z.
Great Job! We selected Mark Anthony after interviewing and taking bids from several other contractors. Mark was patient, thorough and followed through. He was able to get tile samples and direct us to locations where those tiles had been installed so that we could be sure we would select the right material. The job was completed efficiently and on time - the result is top shelf. Mark was the most professional and courteous of the contractors we met with, there is no question we picked the right one. We would use him again! ~Scott S.
Mr. Anthony, I wanted to thank you for the care and quality of your work. Prior to contracting with your company to replace our tile roof, I researched forty-five general contractors and roofing companies through both the California State Licensing Board and the Better Business Bureau. The CSLB provided information on such things as Bonding history and Workers’ Compensation history, including lapses of coverage, as well as interesting information on whether a company had licenses under other names, or were actually one named business “doing business under” a different named business. The BBB was informative in matters such as rating the business, including the reason for the rating, the customer complaints and how they were handled, as well as interesting facts such as the BBB file being opened on a company prior, apparently, to the company being licensed to do business. From the forty-five companies researched, I interviewed representatives whose records appeared to be superior to the rest.
You were the first to schedule what you thought would simply be an appointment to provide your quote. As you know, the appointment was much more than that. Having also researched the latest in roofing techniques and guidelines, I subject each “candidate” to an interview requiring answers to an exhaustive list of questions.
While it is said that being first puts one at a disadvantage, in your case, being first wasn’t a challenge at all. The quality you insist upon in your company was evident in the interview. The competing company interviews that followed could not even come close.
As good as the CSLB and BBB research showed you to be, and as highly as I rated you based on my interview criteria, I still didn’t make a decision until I looked at some of the work of the two “finalists” in my search. Once again, there was simply no competition. Compared to the other company’s roofs, the only way I can describe your company’s work is to say that your roofs looked perfect. Everything about them was simply beautiful. You know your craft, insist upon professionalism, attention to detail, and quality workmanship from your team, and insure that you provide everything provided.
I hope that this letter will show others what you have to offer. The professionalism of your team, and the quality of their work exceeded my expectations. Our roof is beautiful, and we have already received compliments not only from the neighbors, but also from a contractor who watched your work as he did indoor work at a neighbor’s home. I highly recommend Mark Anthony Construction and Roofing. If I had another home in need of a roof, I would make one phone call; and that would be to you, to schedule a date to start work.
Dear Mark, We appreciate the excellent job you company did in reproofing our home. When we accepted your proposal we felt confident that we made an excellent choice. Now that the job is complete, we know we did. Your workmen were very competent and their performance throughout the project was outstanding. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone in need of roofing work.
Best Regards, Chuck and Sharon Kubler

A brief note to you for the wonderful gift with which you blessed us. Having won your customer drawing, the attached gift card was a well needed and well time surprise that shows your concern for your customers and supporters. This token of your generosity during a time of the country’s difficult financial status and also while you work hard speaks volumes of your kindness and honest approach to customer satisfaction.
Since you have served us well with general contractor services before, this kind of thoughtfulness is only surprising for folks who have not been blessed before with your honesty and fully supportive business professionalism. We, of course, are not surprised; but truly reassured that you never forget those you have served.
As you are aware, our next contract with you has been signed and is in place for a near term start. We look forward to enjoying observing your exceptional management skills and support on our job from you and your highly effective and select team of professionals. As you are also aware, you cannot buy your reputation. It has to be done the old fashioned way. It must be earned. For us, you have earned our respect and support.
Very Respectfully, Jim and Paula
Over the last twelve years that I have know Mark as a roofing professional, I have been favorably impressed with his work ethic and attention to customer satisfaction. Furthermore, as a realtor who works to provide my clients with referrals to trusted trades-people, I am happy to have Mark as a roofing resource. I can count on Mark to manage a job that exceeds my clients’ expectations for quality work and reasonable prices.

Mark bid, planned, installed, kept things running smoothly during install and answer our every question and request before during and after the job. In summery, he competitively bid the job against five other San Diego roofing companies, met the deadlines, delivered what he promised on time within cost and passed our final walkthrough and now, nearly a year after his work, we still have the perfect roof we envisioned at bid time. I can think of no other requirement that a roofer could or should be expected to meet. Mark Anthony is still the gentleman we first met; but, now he is also our friend.
Respectfully, Jim and Paula Boyle.
We had a great experience with Mark Anthony Construction and Roofing! They did a great job, finished on time and came in under what we expected to pay. We would use them again in a heartbeat! (and will if we need anymore work done!)

Highly recommend this contractor! I have met many contractors in the 20+ years of being a homeowner and working with Mark Anthony Construction and Roofing was definitely a great experience. Professional, clear paperwork, follow-up phone calls, on schedule, no surprises, quality work, and cleaned-up after themselves.

Mark Anthony Construction and Roofing just finished our new roof. Can’t say enough about the quality of the work and professionalism of the staff. Mark gave us a good price and made sure that the job was done correctly every step of the way. We love our new roof and cant give Mark and his company high enough praise.
