"If you are looking for any type of marine construction then you need look no further than LSI– I cannot recommend them highly enough."
In my busy daily life it takes a lot to motivate me to commit the time and effort to write a testimonial for contracted work on my home. When contracting work, I expect high standards with the project being delivered on time, cost and quality. So in a time when everyone is quick to complain, I want to share my positive experience of LSI and share my satisfaction and pleasure with others who may be looking for a marine contractor. When I decided to build a dock with covered gazebo on the Albemarle Sound on the Outer Banks, I knew I needed a reliable trusted contractor who would not only build but also advise me on what would work and what would not, a contractor I could rely on to deliver to my expectations. I did the usual Internet searches, asked friends and neighbors and had three potential contractors identified. Of the three, only LSI instilled the confidence and experience i was looking for and worked with me to design a solution that met my needs and budget. Once we agreed the design, LSI took care of all the necessary permits and worked commenced. From the first piling being driven in, until my first walk along the dock to see the construction progress, was an experience in professional commitment to the project. Nothing was rushed, no corner cut, well actually every corner was cut to perfection, so no sharp edges were left that could cause injury and made the whole construction aesthetic and pleasing to the eye. Our dock project was hit by hurricane Matthew but without issue, and the team commenced as soon as they could gain access to the property again. My fears of disruption to the rest of the property and yard being torn up did not materialize, with construction material being hand carried from the front to the rear of the property construction area. As to the construction itself – this far exceeded my expectations and I have every confidence that this is a dock that will stand the test of time, from the choice of round pilings that even I can appreciate are far more aerodynamic to better withstand hurricane winds, to the construction of the gazebo which I am thrilled with and has impressed friends and neighbors alike. I know we are going to gain may years of happy times on our dock and although a significant investment I am thrilled and recognize value and quality – I have them all in this dock. If you are looking for any type of marine construction then you need look no further than LSI – I cannot recommend them highly enough. Professional, courteous and committed - they deliver what they say they will deliver.

"...delighted at how well it held up during Hurricane Irene."
LSI Marine Construction built a dock for our property on Kitty Hawk Bay in the spring of 2011, and we were delighted at how well it held up during Hurricane Irene. In spite of having been completely underwater there is only minor damage to the portion of it that is land-based, which is now tilted slightly.

"Their expertise, experience, and operation of their business is second to none."
Our dock was destroyed by Hurricane Irene. We were at a loss about who to go to build our new dock. Choosing LSI was the best decision we have made in home repairs. Their expertise, experience, and operation of their business is second to none. I admire our new dock and benches as a masterpiece!
