This letter is written in support of the Northfield business, “Mark & Joan’s Home Maintenance”, run by Mark and Joan Ekeren. This past summer, the Ekerens repaired my outside, screened-in porch, replacing screens and deck railings. I was very impressed with the work done and their work ethic. The repairs were fabulous and the Ekerens kept me informed at each step of the process as to what was going on. They were a pleasure to interact with and the charge for the repairs was very reasonable. Mark also tried to repair my old automatic garage door opener that was malfunctioning. After spending about 5 hours on the project, it became clear that the unit had to be replaced. Mark did not charge me for any of that time spent. Now, that’s true professionalism.
