Mention Marty Bevilaqua’s name to any of his clients, past and present, and you are sure to elicit unabashed praise.
Upon graduating from college, Marty decided to embark upon a career in the construction industry. He approached each project with meticulous attention to detail, quickly becoming one of the most sought-after masonry experts in the industry, bringing many of Brooklyn’s most beautiful homes, as well as prominent yeshivas such as Torah Temimah, Beth Rivkah, and the striking neo-classical Hatzolah of Flatbush building on Ocean Avenue in Brooklyn, to fruition.
Not surprisingly, Marty’s client base grew, expanding far beyond Brooklyn, with many clients moving to the Five Towns, Far Rockaway, and Long Island communities. Taking his business to the next level, he bought Oceanville Mason Supply — and the rest is history.
Oceanville Mason Supply is a masonry showcase for materials. It sets the standards for others to follow within the masonry industry. Oceanville takes pride in offering the highest levels of knowledge and service to their customers. “Our contractors return to us to enjoy a high level of commercial service and for being treated in a professional manner,” Marty said. “We will always strive to handle a customer in the best way possible.”
Homeowners should begin the process by visiting Oceanville’s three designer showrooms, contractor showroom, and outdoor brick, stone, and paver display areas. Here you will experience the actual colors and textures of pavers, cultured stone, brick, and natural stone and brick. You will receive literature and a wealth of information from any one of OMS’s highly experienced staff—everything you need to build your dream castle. Showrooms are open on Sunday!
Guy Friedman of Friedman Realty is a builder in the Five Towns who has been building magnificent homes for years. He has been buying most of his masonry products from Oceanville Mason Supply since meeting Marty in 2004. He buys handmade brick, natural wall stone, bluestone, brownstone, travertine, cultured stone, and concrete pavers, using it all throughout his clients’ properties for the houses, patios, walkways, and pool surrounds.
“Our customers can appreciate Guy’s focus on excellence,” says Marty. “He was and always will be demanding the highest quality of materials. We respect this principle and because of it Oceanville strives to offer the best materials available, meeting the highest standards available. We will never offer substandard products at low prices just to gain market share. Oceanville will continue its mission to provide the best existing products and will always be at the forefront of introducing new products to our customers. We have always been, and continue to be, the place to go to pick up the finest quality attainable in bluestone, limestone, Brown Wave, travertine, granite, natural veneer stone, and Cultured Stone by Boral (the best manufactured stone).”
Their fabrication shop continues to provide beautifully sculpted stones for custom steps, fireplace, and pool areas. Their outdoor masonry displays are vast, showing various material installed. Everything is labeled and may be easily viewed on the company’s sidewalks and driveways. Oceanville Mason Supply’s showrooms feature a stellar selection of beautiful samples as well as a large-screen monitor that illustrates most of the material used on projects.
Efficient and knowledgeable sales experts will help homeowners navigate what may often be a challenging material selection process. Providing unsurpassed signature service and premium products, every staff member is an expert in his or her field. The counter staff is contractor-oriented and knows what is important for them to be successful. Working efficiently and safely, the yard team enables customers to complete their shopping and return to their daily routines.
Since its inception 42 years ago, the priority of Oceanview Mason Supply has been to provide its customers with a pleasant, knowledgeable experience. Oceanview offers beautiful solutions for outdoor living for your home. To remain at the forefront, they continue their highly successful tradition of bringing educational services to contractors, homeowners, and professionals. Each product is researched to ensure that customers can make informed decisions when selecting materials for their projects. Additionally, the company disburses literature and presents educational seminars to help maintain higher standards in the use of manufactured and stone veneers.
“We supply materials to many of Long Island’s finest landscapers, home builders, and contractors,” says Marty. “We work with the most talented designers in the community and we are happy to provide references for you. For the ‘do-it-yourself’ homeowner, we can provide literature and assistance.”
With integrity, superb quality, and signature service as hallmarks, it is not surprising that Oceanville Mason Supply’s client base spans the Five Towns, Long Island, and even beyond the metropolitan area. The company’s many satisfied customers are their best advertisement.
