In Houston, Marek sets the standard on every job we tackle. We take pride in the fact that contractors choose us, in part, because we work side by side to solve even the most creative and complex projects. We do the biggest buildings and pay attention to the smallest details. The range of services we offer and the diversity of what we do make Marek Houston the center of innovation for this company and our industry.
Since ancient times, the nicer homes had smooth walls and ceilings made of plaster. This remained true until the 20th century and the invention of gypsum board. Today, the finish of choice in many multi-million dollar homes and condominiums is gypsum board with a smooth Level 5 finish. And MAREK is the contractor of choice to perform this Level 5 finish. Luxury home builders, architects, and interior designers often request us for their highest profile projects.
The wood framing that is used in the vast majority of residential construction presents unique challenges and problems. A wood stud or joist is not an engineered product, and each piece of wood behaves differently when exposed to changes in temperature and humidity. Since the Mareks hung their first house in 1938, we have been meeting these challenges and solving these problems, and we have become the premier residential drywall contractor in each of the markets we serve.
Textures are an important part of residential construction. Styles change over the years, and it is often possible to date a house by the type of texture on the walls and ceilings. Texture serves not only a decorative but a functional purpose. When artificial or natural light shines across a wall or ceiling surface, it can accentuate slight irregularities in the wood framing beneath the drywall. Texturing these walls and ceilings tends to break up the light, thus minimizing the slight cosmetic defects that are inherent in every wood framed job.
Our Special Projects Team has the ability to self-perform all of MAREK’s trades on your project. This allows us to be the “single point of control” and deliver the ONE MAREK concept to you and your tenants on your commercial and institutional projects.
