Testimonials

"When considering replacing my bulkhead and dock I contracted Channel Marine. From the first meeting with Frank at the site you knew he was experienced and knowledgeable but also passionate about his work and helping the customer. From that initial meeting thru contract, installation and completion I was never let down. Frank and Channel Marine's crews under promised and over delivered on our expectation.

Since that initial meeting and the 1st bulkhead and dock installation, I have contracted with Channel Marine for: an additional bulkhead and dock at another property I acquired, pilings for house construction, a boat lift and storm damage repairs. I have also referred Channel Marine and Frank to friends and neighbors who have been just as happy with their performance.

A truly satisfied customer!!"

"We were very pleased with our decision to have Channel Marine Construction, Inc. install our new 60' Bulkhead and Ramps to Docks. We had the opportunity to be at our home daily with watching the construction of our project from beginning to end. As a retired Union Carpenter I appreciated the quality of workmanship and dependability our "Work Crew" presented daily. A great group of guys! Special thanks to Frank Bowen and Marie for their kindness and willingness to help us whenever we called their office.

We've had numerous folks stop by, chat and admire our Bulkhead. We continue to recommend Channel Marine to anyone who has a marine construction need. "

"I'd like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation to Channel Marine for the high standard of workmanship and reliability of your company. Throughout the years as a customer and business associate, Channel Marine has demonstrated the utmost dependability and quality of service.

The company built my bulkhead 10 years ago in addition to my brother's and we were both extremely pleased. I have also referred numerous real estate clients over the years, whom also contracted their home projects with Channel.

"The Marina Mews Bulkhead Committee would like to express their sincere appreciation for the quality work that was performed by Channel Marine Construction. During contractor selection, we met with numerous "bulkhead contractors". We were very impressed with Frank Bowen – Channel Marine Construction, in our initial discussion over the project. Frank explained how his company would approach the project and offered suggestions based on previous experience.

The large and complex project spanned about 6 months. Throughout the project, Channel Marine demonstrated to us that they are a 'first class' organization. Frank was in frequent communication with us regarding the project status, any changes, and questions, etc. Frank always asked if he was unsure of anything. He would also promptly call you back if you had questions. In addition, Frank worked closely with our engineer to ensure that he was in compliance with the project specifications.

The workers who were at our complex daily did a phenomenal job. They worked hard each day and cleaned up at the end of the project. They were all personable and willing to work with the unit owners to minimize disruptions to their daily lives. The "bulkheader" crew worked very hard even in the most unpleasant weather conditions. The carpenters were truly craftsmen in their field and made our decking area look absolutely beautiful upon completion of the project.

Working with Channel Marine Construction's administrative team was a breeze. Marie managed the permits and invoices and clearly documented the work performed on each invoice. The invoices were extremely detailed and were easy to match with the items listed on the proposals.

In summary, we highly recommend Channel Marine Construction for any project. They are a 'first class' organization run by honest people who will give you what you want. They stand behind their work and immediately correct any imperfections. As Frank always said…."I am doing this job the way I would want this job done at my house." This statement could not be more accurate."

"I wasn't looking forward to all the work, disruption and expense of having to replace our bulkhead, but the Channel Marine team certainly helped to relieve the pain. They were truly a pleasure to deal with at all levels, from our initial contact with Frank Bowen, Marie in the office, Scott and the bulkhead construction team on the site and the carpentry team that completed the piers and decking. Frank was always available, and promptly returned my calls if he wasn't. The workmanship and finished product were also excellent. A Margate City staff member even complemented us on the quality of the work when they delivered the final inspection approval. Although I sure hope I don't need to, I would definitely use them again.

"My experience working with Channel Marine Construction, Inc., i.e. a bulkhead replacement in 2008 and observing one across the street in 2012 was a "Professional", "Pleasant" and "Rewarding" one and memory. Professional: From the office staff, to the written Proposal, to the work outline followed and equipment used. Pleasant: Again, the office staff and observing the work performed by a dedicated skilled team, who were focused on the job at hand yet always willing to answer a question. Rewarding: To witness the "old time work ethic" and skilled team. This "movie" was worth front row seats!!!"

"When it came to repairing our dock in Avalon, we spoke to as many friends and neighbors as possible looking for recommendations. Frank and Channel Marine Construction were at the top of everyone’s list. Frank and the folks at Channel Marine were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Frank was patient with our questions and responsive to our requests. All the work was done as promised with exceptional attention to detail and completed on time. My family and I couldn’t be happier with our new dock and pier."

"My bulkhead and dock replacement project has just been completed. I was concerned about the complexity of the process but the CMC team promised and delivered on a true turnkey experience. I was impressed with the level of professionalism and expertise I experienced with both the administrative team as well as the construction team. The end result was a product delivered as promised. I am very happy to say that Channel Marine was my best choice."

- Tom Dwyer, Avalon, NJ

"Recently had a new bulkhead along with a floating dock, ramp and new pilings put in by Channel Marine. First, we received proposals from several other marine construction companies, some more expensive, some cheaper but what was clear was that Channel Marine was going to provide the highest quality of work and care. Now the project is complete, this is without a doubt the case. Frank and team did an outstanding job not just designing the right solution but making sure that the job was done right. 2nd, Channel Marine is hands-on, esp the folks that work in the shop... always responsive and willing to answer questions or concerns (for someone doing this from a far and for the first time, their help and patience with me as a client was notable). Last, I can say with great confidence I would recommend Channel Marine based on my experience to any considering a marine construction project in the South Jersey area."

"The owners of Bay Village Condominiums to a person wish to thank your company for the outstanding job you did in constructing our new bulkhead and adjoining finger piers. While we were faced with many challenges (higher bulkhead requirements, terrible weather conditions, time constraints, etc.) your firm rose to the occasion and not only completed the job on time but did so in an outstanding manner.

From your bulkhead crew, to the decking crew, to your office manager, to the onsite supervisors, we always felt we were dealing with highly responsive and competent people. All went very smoothly and we are absolutely thrilled with how great the final product looks. Our bulkhead is the envy of our adjoining neighbors. We all owe you a debt of gratitude for what you did to enhance the value of Bay Village.

Please feel free to use us as a reference. It was a pleasure doing business with you and congratulate you for running such a quality focused company."

"What can I say beyond: Channel Marine Construction, Inc is an example of a great American company... bar none. My thanks and appreciaiton go out to Channel Marine Contruction specifically to Marie, Rusty and Frank for their outstanding customer service along with qualoty work, creativity and professionalism. Just recently they repaired my finger pier on a timely basis in spite of a very heavy workload. That experience was beyond expectations. Earlier this year they also built a very challenging bulkhead for Bay Village, where I reside part time and replaced some pilings for me. Great job!!"
