The Client Experience

Have you always wanted to live on the water? Homeowners, Lynne and Doug, had been living in a large house in Phoenix which ultimately became too much to maintain. With family ties to the Middle River area reaching back to the 1930’s, the family made the decision to move back home and remodel an older family home.
Finding the Right Contractor
The family had been in contact with over 5 contractors throughout the remodeling process. The husband Doug, an engineer himself, was disappointed in every contractor he met until he came across Chris Parker from Parker Design Build Remodel. He was responsive, organized and they valued his engineering expertise.
Building & Design Expertise
Waterfront restrictions in Maryland vary from county to county. Parker’s team was deeply knowledgeable which was a huge time saver when applying for permits and staying on schedule. They took a small 1100 square foot home, gave it an open floor plan with two bedrooms plus an office. Chris’s expertise in both design and construction enabled him to work within the family’s budget to give them a fabulous custom looking kitchen with affordable materials. Every inch of the home was utilized to be functional and beautiful.
Chris and his team exceeded the family’s expectations. Homeowner Lynne said, “His responsiveness was impeccable. He laid out the schedule and finished renovating the home early. He came in under budget and took care of any issue that arose along the way. So many people talk about customer service, Parker’s team actually delivered it.” Renovating a home can be stressful, however the decision to use Parker Design and Build made the process very enjoyable.
