Customer Testimonials

Below are a few nice comments from our customers. Frank: I am writing to inform you that the beautiful home you built for us came through hurricane Sandy virtually unscathed. As you are aware, Holgate received the full effects of the storm and suffered the most damage.  When my wife and I were allowed back on the Island to inspect our home, we were anticipating the worst.  As we drove south on LBI, the damage we witnessed was unbelievable.  The further south we drove, the more extensive and severe the damage became. Then we reached our home, pulled into the driveway and looked up in amazement.  We observid for the first time, that our home not only survived Sandy, but looked as good as the day you delivered it. Not believing our eyes, we got out of our car, walked completely around our home, pleased to find every aspect and side of the house were in great shape.  You would not have known the most devastating storm in history had just passed through the area. An inspection of the interior revealed the same – no damage, not from flood, nor wind. A home exposed to such severe conditions, coming out the other side of the storm, unblemished, confirms not only do you build beautiful homes, but that they are structurally superior as well. Thank you for being so good at what you do.  I shared our story with friends and family and they indicated they will be using you for their next home construction project. Thanks again and be well, Lou and Joanne Esposito Holgate, NJ

  Frank, We wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team, for the way you handled this very challenging situation, on Long Beach Island over the past six weeks or so... From the days before Hurricane Sandy, to the days, and weeks that immediately followed, you kept us informed and answered all of our questions, to the absolute best of your ability.  We know how hard it was to get on the island to check out property, due to the extensive damage, but you managed to check our property, within days...Prior to the storm your secured our home in Barnegat Light NJ... As you know, we are in the final stages of building, and needless to say, we were all very concerned as Sandy approached...You communicated with us, throughout the storm, but the phone call we received from you, on Saturday evening, 11/3/12, four days after Sandy's departure from the area, assured us that choosing FCM Builders was the right choice.  You told us we were 100% dry and totally in tact... We came to the island a week or so later, to find things exactly as we had left them, on Thursday 10/25, prior to the storm... As you indicated, there was not a shingle off the house, or a piece of siding out of place.  Our Anderson Stormwatch windows and doors kept out the wind driven rain, and the house was, completely dry and undisturbed.  Thank you for building our house, the way your would build it, for a member of your own family.  We respect your passion for excellence and appreciate your commitment to quality workmanship, detail, and customer satisfaction!  Thank you again! and we anticipate many happy and safe years in our new home at the shore.   Yours truly, Anthony & Mary Nicosia 11 W. 22nd Street Barnegat Light, NJ

  We were introduced to Frank Maugeri – owner of FCM Built in 2007 by a mutual friend. We had bought some land in North Beach and were looking for a GC to build our beach house. We met with Frank and looked through some albums of his work. My wife and I knew immediately that Frank was “our” guy and did not even look at any homes he built before hiring him. It was a fantastic and rewarding decision as Frank’s work is spectacular. Our beach house is beautiful and is truly our “dream house”. He genuinely cares about his clients, quality of work and is a perfectionist. Since our house was finished in 2008, Frank has also been our ‘eyes” down in LBI. He checks the house periodically and has done numerous favors for us especially before and after storms. Our house, besides some mud on the ground level floors, survived Sandy famously. I have and will gladly continue to recommend Frankto all my friends and acquaintances.  He makes the whole process enjoyable and the finished product is outstanding.

  Frank, Thank you for everything that you have done for us during the Sandy hurricane and subsequent emergency.  Not only did our house survive with no damage, due to your superb construction, but your checking on the house and constant updates gave us peace of mind.  You went over and above anything that I heard from our friends about their builders.  In addition we appreciate your coordination of the plumbers and other workers in the aftermath of the storm.  From working with you over the last year in the building of our house we came to expect this outstanding service and care that you and your people provided. While we are writing this letter in appreciation of your effort during Sandy we would be remiss if we did not thank you and FCM Builders for the wonderful house you built for us.  The quality and workmanship is outstanding.  Everyone who visits comments on the attention to detail and workmanship that is displayed thoughout the house.   Choosing FCM Builders to build the house was the best decision we could have made.  We can’t imagine how we would have accomplished this without your constant support, guidance and building expertise.  Not only did we get a beautiful house that stood up to the worst Sandy could throw at it we also got a new friend. We no longer consider you our builder but our friend.  That is one of the best things that came out of building the house.  Thanks for all you have done for us.  Without you this house would not have been built and would not have survived as well as it did. Tom & Joan Frangione

We met Frank in the fall of 2008.  Frank walked us through the approval and design process and built us a beautiful home.  Frank worked with an architect and interior designer we picked out and the three worked beautifully together.  Frank created a picture perfect bathroom to match one we picked out of a magazine.  The house sustained no damage from Sandy when most houses on our street suffered significant damage.  Frank lives on LBI and watches over the house when we are away.  We whole-heartedly recommend Frank to anyone building on LBI.

To Frank Maugeri and FCM Builder:
Once again, we extend our profound thanks for your superior workmanship in building our beachfront house in Holgage.  Once it was completed in the summer of 2011, everyone agreed it was drop dead beautiful.   But when Superstorm Sandy delivered a direct and furious blow to Holgate and did its best to destroy the beach, the dunes, and everything in its path, the true measure of your skill came through.
Our house is standing tall and proud on the part of Long Beach Island that was the most devastated. Thank you, Frank, for your immediate assistance to us in the clean-up and restoration of those areas where Sandy left her mark.  And thank you above all for our house that Sandy did not break.
Mr. & Mrs. Joseph A. Hayden
