Mark Hall
D&H Homes & Remodeling
 
Proudly serving Ocala, The Villages and Leesburg as well as Marion, Sumter and Lake Counties, D&H Homes & Remodeling has boundless experience in both commercial and residential construction. This experience has come from primarily the state of Florida but expands to another 9 states within the Southeastern United States as well.. A forerunner in their industry, CEO/President Mark Hall and his highly trained team are the best in Central Florida when it comes to custom home construction, home additions, residential remodels, garage expansions, lanai enclosures, kitchen/bath remodels, driveways, pavers and more. Katie Donahue contacted D&H for an upstairs remodel estimate. “Mark took the time to discuss all aspects of the project and different options to best fit our needs. He presented us with ideas and sought our approval every step of the way. The D&H team was friendly, knowledgeable and worked around our busy schedule,” she says. Many people put off remodels and upgrades because of inconvenience – it’s difficult to live in a space that’s undergoing renovations. “With three school-aged kids under one roof, we thought overhauling our kitchen would be impossible,” recalls John Marks. “Mark made sure the process was executed in a way that finished the project without interrupting the daily routine of making meals for my family.” The D&H philosophy is one of fine craftsmanship and superior work. Their family and faith-based foundation includes not only using quality products and promising excellent service but helping families maintain their standard of living throughout the process.
