About Us:

The success of any construction project depends on the talent and dedication of the tradespeople whose job it is to bring that project to life. Manley Development, Inc. has a clear vision of how to acomplish that success as described by some of it's many happy customers.

“Phil and his company, Manley Development, Inc., were a pleasure to work with on our kitchen remodel. From the inception of the project, he listened to what our needs and desires were and used our ideas to reach a mutually agreeable design. He was organized and thorough, so his work force maximized each day to get the renovation done as close to the predicted time as possible. His workmanship is second to none and his attention to detail shines through in the finished product. He is also a very honest businessman who did his best to stay within the original budget and estimate. We would recommend Phil for any home renovation or construction project without hesitation.” February 28, 2011

1st Mary Fenchel 
hired Phil as a General Contractor in 2010

“Phil completed an extensive master bathroom renovation for my family in 2011. My wife and I are absolutely thrilled with the results. Structurally, this included demolition of the previous bath, raising the ceiling, moving a wall, as well as moving plumbing and electrical. All work was done exceptionally well and in conformance w/ township code, of which Phil was very knowledgeable. Phil was very easy to work with throughout the process. He always would try to elicit our vision, as well as offer creative ideas that we hadn't considered, such as vaulting the ceiling. My wife very much enjoyed working w/ Phil and our dog, Mario, loved having him around. I found Phil to be highly trustworthy, as he was very upfront around change orders and their impact on the budget. He showed up when he said he would and finished the job in a timely fashion. He was the toughest critic of his own work and redid some sheet rock work that I would have been OK with. I recommend Phil very highly and look forward to working with him on future projects.”February 27, 2011
