Marciniak Gets it Right The First Time

By Deb Mowbray

“The majority of what I do is fix other people’s mistakes,” states Walt Marciniak of Marciniak Construction Company in Centreville. “People tend to make the mistake of calling the cheapest contractor first and then not too long after they’ll be calling someone like me,” he adds.

As a certified general contractor, home inspector, licensed real estate agent and certified Anderson Windows technician, Walt brings a wealth of expertise to his customers. He knows what makes money in real estate and where his clients can expect a return on their construction investment.

Marciniak Construction specializes in all types of renovations- from decks to kitchens, and all sizes of jobs- from small to large. According to Walt they have recently established a combined partnership with 84 Lumber and Anderson Windows which enables them to repair or renovate any Anderson Window made after 1968 without having to replace the entire window.

“I try to give my clients enough information to make an informed decision,” says Walt. He feels that the popularity of home improvement shows has created a misconception among homeowners regarding the remodeling process. “What they forget to mention is that they are working with a limitless budget, crew and time,” he says of the reality shows. Walt notes that the stagnant housing marketing has resulted in a trend to remodel existing homes since people realize they may be staying in them awhile.

With an estimated 80% of his business being repeat clients or referrals, Walt is clearly satisfying his customers the first time around. To contact Walt and Marciniak Construction call: 443-496-1292 or email Walt at
