what our homeowners are saying

Merrick’s in-house architectural design, interior design, and construction services allow us to offer a true turn-key experience.

Merrick exceeded our expectations in terms of the quality of craftsmanship and effort. It was a great experience working with them. They put in a remarkable effort and produced a beautiful home.

Merrick Construction has exceeded my expectations. The process has been seamless from the coordination of the subcontractors to all the inspections. Drew has been a wonderful project manager, and I am overall very pleased with the project. He’s very responsive, very nice, and easy to work with. It’s been an absolute pleasure.

I am recognizing Drew Paril as our project manager. I would recognize him for being completely dedicated to customer service and paying close attention to detail in scheduling. Also, Laura Spakowski, the interior designer, did an outstanding job as well. She was incredibly patient, very customer-oriented, and her design expertise in my cabinetry build is invaluable.

I’m very impressed with the way they organized the plan for my build. Tim, Anthony, and the rest of the team were wonderful. I chose Merrick Construction because they are extremely detail oriented. They come across as honest and very prepared. They also have excellent staff.

Steve has been very good as a project manager, and the owner of Merrick Construction has always been extraordinarily responsive anytime I needed anything. I don’t know if there’s much they can do to make my life better. In the capacity I’ve engaged with them, they’ve been great to work with. Keep that up!

Every single person we have had contact with at Merrick, starting with Tim Cross and everyone in the office, to those on the project site, have been exceptional. We would like to give a special shout out to Drew Paril for his excellent management of our project. Drew has been a pleasure to work with – he is professional and handles difficult situations with ease and grace. We are also very impressed with the lead carpenter, Mike who seems to be on the job 24/7, cutting, sawing, and creating beautiful custom woodwork for our home. Drew and Mike have taken my ideas and inspiration photos and come up with plans that are exactly what I was hoping for. They listened to me, tried to incorporate what they could, and took the time to help me understand if some of what I envisioned couldn’t get done. I was very lucky to have such a creative and dedicated team to work with.

I have already recommended Merrick to everyone looking for a builder. They run their business extremely well, meeting price and schedule commitments with excellent communication. We are very detail oriented and were looking for high-end materials and excellent craftsmanship. Merrick met our expectations. Communication was excellent. We were easily able to communicate exactly what we wanted and had two project managers to communicate with for questions, detail clarification, and scheduling. This is one of the most important parts of working with a GC and it was perfect.

From start to finish, the experience of building with Merrick has been great. They listened, supported, and were incredibly responsive. This was an ‘across the board’ experience–from the owner, to the project manager, to the construction team, and subcontractors. Top-notch. These guys know their stuff and are unbelievably responsive.

The project manager was extremely respectful and attentive. He listened and made
critical scheduling adjustments in order to make the home livable during the pandemic. We recognize having clients that are living on-site adds to the project challenge. Amazing craftsmanship and attention given to a historic home. All Merrick carpenters exercised great care and pride in their finished work.

The entire Merrick team was wonderful to work with. The whole process was very smooth and quick from start to finish (they worked every day from the start of the project to completion). We felt like we were very involved in every phase, but we didn’t feel stressed out about any of it. The Merrick team always had good suggestions – whether it was for something to eliminate to keep the cost down or helping with material selection. Small changes or adjustments throughout the process were acceptable. We honestly feel that the entire Merrick team delivered exceptional service from the start of the project to the end. With that being said, we are thankful for Tim helping us scope out the project and guiding us through the budgeting process. Of course, we were thrilled with our project manager – he was always accessible, one step ahead of the project (and kept me on track), and extremely easy to work with. Our carpenter went above and beyond to deliver quality work. We were lucky to have such a dedicated and determined team. We really appreciate the professional manner the team exhibited throughout the process. Be assured that we will continue to recommend Merrick when we talk with others who are considering a building project.

I appreciate Merrick’s ability to communicate! The best in the business! Tim and his staff met deadlines and followed through on everything they promised. It was such a pleasure to work with them. I’m looking forward to our next project together!

We searched for a contractor on Houzz.com and found 3. We interviewed all, but were especially attracted to Merrick because of the products and quality of their workmanship. We could not be happier with the whole process from start to finish. Have recommended them to all our friends and neighbors.

While each person who worked on the job was courteous and professional, our project manager did an exceptional job of understanding what we wanted in terms of customizing our built-ins and making the space both efficient and beautiful. The quality of the work and attention to detail gives us great comfort in knowing we made the right choice in using Merrick.
