Scott Small: NC Licensed General Contractor for LSI Marine Construction

It is with great pleasure that I write this letter recommending LSI Marine Construction, LLC, our local marine construction vendor for over 7 years. LSI Marine Construction, LLC, and myself, along with the owners and representatives of our company, have had a longstanding relationship with this company in which we have entrusted with a great deal of our major fishing pier projects. They have completed a multitude of projects varying in difficulty and skill; such as re-building our historic Kitty Hawk fishing pier after many, many hurricanes including piling replacements, decking, handrails, hardware and pier house underpinning, just to name a few. The skill and knowledge of Scott and his team is widespread and impressive.

Jeremy Miller | G.M. Hilton Garden Inn Kitty Hawk

Not knowing many people here in the Outer Banks or the regulations in Nags Head, I had to depend on someone we could trust. Everyone I spoke to directed me to LSI. After meeting with Scott and Monica, I was confident we made the right choice.

It was a tall order and Scotts confidence in the job made it an easy decision for us. LSI dredged just under 1000 yards out of the canal to give us the depth needed. They reinforced the sea wall, built a new dock with a boat slip and lift, plus built a roof over part of the dock for shade. I’m particular about construction and I have to say we couldn’t be happier with the craftsmanship and heavy duty construction. The layout and design was exactly what we were looking for.

Thanks so much to Scott, Monica and all the guys!!!

Dear Scott,

We wanted to write you a note to tell you how much we appreciate the craftsmanship and work ethic of Daniel and his crew.

The dock is absolutely beautiful, and we are very fortunate to have had them do the work!

Thank you again and you can trust us to recommend your company to anyone that is looking for a new dock!
