Where the Passion Begins
Director of Design/Build
Mark began his remodeling career while still in college studying Civil Engineering. In 1992, he started his own remodeling company which he grew to an award-winning Design/Build firm.
Mark began coaching and consulting with other contractors, and in 2017, he and his wife, Sam, started Lightpoint Design & Cabinetry. In January 2021 they purchased Mauck Construction (one of the firms Mark consulted with) and renamed it
Lightpoint Design & Renovations. The two companies merged and formed Lightpoint Designs.

Mark continues to consult with contractors as well as coach homeowners in an effort to promote professionalism in the remodeling industry along with a better understanding of how to make the whole process more enjoyable and get the best value for their investment.
