November 2013, Mayer Building Company turned over this single-family home restoration in the Black Pearl neighborhood. This building was in significant disrepair when the owner purchased it. Now after only 3 months worth of work on the interior and exterior, this little gem boasts a slew of improvements. In addition to the full renovations of the interior, we replaced the roof, salvaged the ridge cap terra cotta, painted the exterior siding and trim. We modified the porch and replaced broken sidewalk segments, changing this eyesore into a quaint abode with true curb appeal.Read More

Between French Quarter Fest & Jazz Fest, Lush Cosmetics on Decatur had a roof leak that caused damage on all three floors of the nineteen century masonry building. Mayer Building Company responded to the call on Day One. We were able to make the repairs for this major producer for Lush in three and half days time. (One day before we projected, actually). Lush is back in business. Not only will they be ready for Jazz Fest, they will be ready for the upcoming Friday and Saturday Whiskey & Perfume Tasting, Lush’s Perfume Gallery Experience.Read More
Mayer Building Company recently turned over a preventative maintenance package on three Landmarked buildings on Baronne St. We achieved all the guidelines for the historic permit prior to the work. After that, we set out to complete the tasks that MBC and the Owner concluded would be the best way of keeping moisture out of the three buildings. We caulked and puttied and painted windows, changed select weatherboards, removed and replaced fascia boards and gutter coves. We added downspouts, replaced gutters and installed new scuppers. We primed, back-primed and painted all repairs.Read More

I brag about you and your people all of the time.. I get constant compliments on the building! Recently our commercial construction project came to a successful completion, and we are open for business. I appreciate the efforts of Mayer Building Company in building out our new offices on time and within budget.
Thanks again for a job well done! We have completed over 30 Cyclebars across the country in the past year. The New Orleans (Magazine Street) site was not only one of the best but working with Mayer exceeded all expectations. I look forward to future work with the Mayer Team.
Y’all did such a nice job. Thank you so much for your careful work. You’ve helped transform our space!
I just want to thank you and your staff for going above and beyond during this build out process. With us being in a different city, y’all have been awesome to work with. Y’all have accommodated every change within our construction window and have helped us greatly on things that couldn’t have gotten done without you and your staff’s help. Thanks so much. It is greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much for doing such a great job. The rooms look great and the inconvenience to us was minimal at worst. Your personnel was friendly and easy to work with. Fred was really great. We are very pleased with the result. Thank you and I hope to work with you again on another project.
I was concerned about doing a renovation at a place that was many states away from where I lived. I needed someone that I could count on and could handle every aspect of the renovation. I also required someone who was familiar with the permit requirements for an historical building in New Orleans….I would highly recommend Ryan Mayer to any potential client. I was extrememly pleased with the work he performed and would use him again for any additional contracting needs that I may have.
