My name is Mark Parlee.

I have spent 36 years building residential homes, commercial buildings and apartment complexes and completing remodeling projects. As The Building Consultant, I offer a consulting service to identify the problems of building performance, moisture intrusion (leaks), and construction defects.

Q: I have a leak in my home’s exterior. It’s been there for a while, but I didn’t know it until the water showed up inside. How could I have prevented this from becoming so bad?

Testimonial:

I found Mr. Parlee to be knowledgeable in the subject matter and motivated to complete the assigned task.
