“Three years ago Joanne and I bought a quaint oceanfront cottage in the Sussex Shores neighborhood. A renovation was started with good intentions until we discovered there was absolutely nothing worth saving. From the very first meeting with Mike Cummings and his team, it was apparent they knew their stuff. Team Miken was fully prepared and presented with their in-house experts. They walked us through not only the process but the complications of building in the most destructive environment on the east coast… Miken never over promised or under delivered during the entire project. The attention to detail, quality of workmanship and commitment to communication was top shelf. Building at the beach can be complicated, show and expensive. Miken took the stress away and made it fun. Our finished product is a stunning dream come true. If you’re building at the beach you better have faith and trust in your builder. Miken is the only one I’d ever choose.”

“We appreciated Mike’s experience and involvement when working with the designer and finalizing plans. Frank’s experience was invaluable in finalizing the contract and pre-construction work. Sean, Bob and the construction team worked hard to deliver a fine home. The Miken team stayed in touch though out the project and kept us updated. Highly Recommended!”

“My husband and I are very pleased with Miken Builders. Everyone we came into contact with at the office and during the construction of our home was friendly and available to us. No matter how many projects they had at the time or how much work they had to do, every person that is part of the Miken team made us feel that our home and our concerns or questions were the most important thing to them at the time. We felt like we were their only customer. Miken Builders is a trustworthy builder and one that you can count on to get the job done and to do it right!”

“I want to thank you and complement you and your team for the renovation work at my home in Bethany Beach. I had a vision at the start of the job and you guys enhanced it and executed it to perfection. My wife and I are very pleased with the end result and are proud of the compliments we are receiving from neighbors and passer’s by on the “new” look of the house. From my own business experience, I know how important good people are to business performance. A successful business needs both its own qualified staff and ability to align with qualified third parties. Your team on my job, particularly Jim and Martin, were excellent to work with. As importantly, your third party subcontractors did excellent work and it’s a credit to your company that you’re able to attract such talent to your work.”
