We are writing to let you know that you made our first home building experience a very enjoyable one. After researching many home builders and taking courses on building and contracting, we chose Park Ridge Homes because of the quality and pricing.
Brad, you looked after our needs and made every effort to make our home everything we wanted.
We also found that all of the trades were very professional and willing to work with us.
We have now been in our home just over a year and we find everything in the house to be of excellent quality and Park Ridge Services to be outstanding. Thank-you again for your great service.
We have been extremely impressed with the overall quality of our new home. The obvious attention to detail and use of quality products was reassuring to us and a refreshing change from the other Builders we have dealt with in the past.
I rarely reply to comment cards however, we feel I would be appropriate at this occasion to say how happy we have been with the quality, service and professionalism of every person we have had contact with at Birch Arbour. Thank you for building such a quality home.
We are longtime homeowners of a Park Ridge home and would like to offer our testimonial to your clients who may be considering purchasing one of their homes. With the high cost of a new home today, buying a house is an expensive undertaking. In this era of leaky condos and questionable building practices finding a good builder is a daunting task. Touring model homes gives us some insight and most are impressive, but home ownership is usually a long term investment, raising the question, how is this house going to hold up once the newness has worn off?
This testimonial addresses the longevity of a Park Ridge built home.
We met Lloyd Hughes, Brads father in the summer of 1988 when we purchased a lot from Park Ridge Homes in the River Heights area of Coquitlam. We were new residents to BC unfamiliar with the builders here but not new to home building. Our previous experience building our last home had not been a pleasant one, needless to say we were wary, this was also our first experience with a custom built home. We found Lloyd to be a joy to work with. He took our plans and gave us a great house. He was professional, always available and his trade’s people were equally approachable and dependable. We were particularly impressed by the quality materials used.
Fourteen years later we are still in this house. Other than the usual cosmetic changes we all make through the years and some new flooring in the kitchen/family room area, due to wear from two rambunctious Labrador retrievers who have shared the home with us, everything else is as it was the day we moved in. At the time ours was the first house on the street to be built. Gradually other builders began construction of their homes, one in particular built some impressive looking houses with beautiful interior finishes but less than 10 years later some of our neighbors were into some major maintenance work. One family was faced with replacing windows, drywall and a kitchen due to leaky windows, others spent time repairing or replacing decks, meanwhile we relax on ours each summer and enjoy the view. We can go up the stairs without the usual creaking often heard in an older home and walk across the floors without hearing a squeak. The house has long since settled as all homes do, the doors fit, the kitchen cabinet doors line up and we have no leaks. We are enjoying a relatively maintenance free home. The house is a credit to the workmanship and integrity of the Park Ridge team and their suppliers.
Congratulations to Lloyd, Brad and the Park Ridge organization on your Georgie nominations, you deserve it,
you are the Best Builder in BC
We’ll give the last word to the people who have visited our home over the years and the complement
we hear the most from them “This is a beautiful home.”
We chose Park Ridge Homes to custom build our new home because of their excellent reputation, and because of the obvious quality of workmanship that was apparent in their Morgan Heights show home.
The quality of materials and the professionalism of the tradesmen were superior. From the pouring of the foundation to the last coat of paint, to plywood behind the drywall for towel racks and everything in between, we knew we were getting a home that was as well-built on the inside as it was pleasing to the eye on the outside.
We would highly recommend Park Ridge Homes to anyone.
In describing how Park Ridge Homes does business, then the best term that I could use would be professional. Simply put, they are extremely organized, thorough, fair, and always pay on time. This makes it enormously simple to supply them with the kind of quality service they expect.
For anyone that has built a house before or knows someone who has, then I am sure that they know that in the construction industry there is great range in quality, service, and honesty, be it from suppliers, sub-trades and builders. With no hesitation and the sincerest honesty, I can easily say that if you choose to deal with Park Ridge Homes you will never be sorry that you did. They are one of the best in the industry and their reputation is well deserved.
As I approach the end of my second year in my new home I would like to take this opportunity to go “on the record” by saying that my experience in this house has been thoroughly enjoyable. Even though the house was new, as a long time condominium resident, I had my reservations about becoming a homeowner because of the maintenance concerns that have since proved to be totally without basis.
In large part I credit this to the quality of the home that I purchased from your company. It is obvious that every attention to detail was given during the construction of the house. This applies not only to the “internal” workings such as the plumbing, heating and electricity, but also to the more aesthetic features of the home. We have received many compliments on the finishing such as the fireplace mantle and surround, the hardwood flooring in the kitchen, the openness of the design and the practical use of the space.
I also appreciate the fact that the minor problems that occur in a new home were promptly and properly attended to by Park Ridge. My experience with your company has been totally satisfactory and I have no doubt that should I build a new home in the future that Park Ridge Homes would be my builder of choice.
Ross and I would like to take this opportunity to express the positive experience we had dealing with you as we built our first home. As the building process was foreign to us we were looking for a reputable builder who was trustworthy and knowledgeable. We found these traits with Park Ridge Homes.
As we began what we thought would be a daunting process we were pleasantly relieved as everything began falling into place. Whenever we had prearranged meetings with you and your trades-people we found them to be prompt, friendly and helpful.
We visited the site several times a week and seldom was the house not bustling with workers. It was important for us to see continuous progress as timing was of the essence. The end result was that Park Ridge Homes finished our house ahead of our anticipated completion date.
The open plan, high ceilings, detailed wall unit, rounded corners/arches, art niches and tile in the kitchen and bathrooms have allowed the finished product to be everything we hoped for.
The building process was an exciting experience for us and we would recommend Park Ridge Homes to anyone embarking on this journey.
