Residential Services

Since 1938, the name Marek has been synonymous with drywall construction. In the past 75 plus years, we have become the leader in pioneering new methods of drywall application. Long length wallboard, double nailing, screw attachment and premixed joint compounds are just a few of the steps we had introduced in offering greater quality and a more professional approach to drywall construction.

Today, Marek continues as the industry's leader. As always we are finding new and better ways to serve customers throughout the United States while relying on the time honored service and technical know how that has enabled us to become the industry's number one drywall contractor. So, for your drywall and texture needs in tract housing, custom homes, or apartments, look to Marek's residential services for the kind of service that builders have depended on since 1938.
