When I was looking to do a complete remodel of our lake house, I scoured the reviews on Houzz before choosing three companies to interview. Since the lake house is an hour away from our main home, I knew I wanted a design-build firm to handle all of the details. The combination of outstanding reviews, Houzz awards, and professional affiliations made me confident that Fred Parker Company's reputation was solid. It was my interview with Ron and Lila Parker that made me choose them over the other two contenders. Ron's knowledge of design and construction was evident as he calmly walked through and addressed my wish list of things to update our 1950s era lake home. It had been added on to over the years and was currently stuck in the 1980s. We wanted to open it up to capture the lake views to the best advantage, as well as to accommodate our growing family, including adult children and two young grandchildren. Ron took the time to talk about all of our ideas, explaining creative ways to do things, and also letting me know what was worth doing and what was not. He never tried to suggest a more expensive way of doing things, just the "right" way to do things. Doing things the right way turned out to be the catch-word of our remodel. Working with Ron lifted the burden of the project from my shoulders. Having done many other remodels in various locations, I was not a novice to the process. I can honestly say that this was the most pleasant remodel experience I have ever had. Before any work started, Ron had an extraordinarily detailed written plan and design plan in place. There was a foreman on-site every step of the way, and any time I had a question, Ron always answered the phone and thoughtfully answered every question or concern that I had. Ron's payment structure was completely professional also. I must mention Lila Parker as well. She was instrumental in helping choose all design elements. She and Ron work together as a team with the best interest of the client at the forefront of every decision. Lila worked tirelessly helping me choose colors, paint, tile, flooring, fixtures, window coverings, and furniture. We have been enjoying our remodeled lake home with our extended family for the last three months. We can't help grinning at the results every time we open the door. We also have new friends in Ron and Lila. I highly recommend them for peace of mind in achieving impeccable results that exceeded our expectations.
