Home Remodeling Contractors


Home renovation that bring together the old and new

Today’s homeowners are appreciating their existing homes more, and when remodeling or renovating, are looking to retain the original home’s style when working with home remodeling contractors. This direction merges old and new styles in an elegant finished product. Instead of simply renovating a home for an investment, people are now staying in their homes longer, building up their community, and seeking to create a family space that fits their needs now and in the future. This takes careful planning and can also create long term value for your home if you should ever choose to move. Mares & Dow Construction & Skylights brings our 40 years of experience as home remodeling contractors working with houses of different periods and styles to help you create beautiful, long lasting, and energy efficient home renovation.


We help develop your dreams into reality

The way we use our home necessarily changes over time. An expanding family may require a new extension for a bedroom or a basement remodel. Whatever your needs, we work with you to bring your ideas together into a home renovation plan that fits your budget. For example, if you need additional space for an office or playroom, you may be able to integrate a dining area into your kitchen and repurpose your dining room into that new functional space. Our experience with new and old homes of every style has allowed us to develop an understanding of what styles and products work well for all types of remodeling projects.

As home remodeling contractors we believe that this process should be fun and rewarding. It begins by creating your dream list and working together to find the cost-effective strategy that results in a safe, comfortable, energy-efficient, long-lasting space.
