Choosing to build is a fun and stressful experience to say the least. But in the end it was worth it in every imaginable way. After speaking with several others who built with a number of different companies, my decision to go with Parks & Tolpa was simple. Steve and Bob allowed me the freedom to build my home exactly how I wanted it, without any script or guidelines that I had to follow. Communication from Steve and Bob was daily thoughout the process and they were always available when I needed them. Now that the home is done, the quality speaks for itself. I could not be more pleased.

We could not be happier with our new home! Before we met Steve and Bob, we had been searching for builders for quite some time. No one ever felt “just right” with us. Then we met Steve & Bob. From the moment we met them, we knew they were going to be the guys to build our house. They are honest, hardworking, extremely knowledgeable and very professional. They stayed in constant contact with us and gave updates throughout the process. Not one question of ours went unanswered. And, they answer their phone. Steve and Bob made building a pleasurable experience. And we had lots of laughs! Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts for building our “forever” home.

Bob and Steve were recommended to us by a friend who is involved in construction and who was familiar with their work. After our first meeting, we knew we were going to hire them to build our home. All of the sub-contractors they use were great, and when we had questions, Bob or Steve always answered their phones, which is something I have never experienced with other contractors. Most importantly, we ended up with a very well built house that we, Steve, and Bob should be very proud of.

We were fortunate to be able to work with Parks & Tolpa on the planning and construction of our house. The key to building is a good construction company, and that's what you get with Bob and Steve. They listened to us and offered suggestions and their expertise as needed. Both are good natured and were great to work with every step of the way. Bob and Steve are true professionals and make sure everything is to the home owner’s expectations. We love our new house. Building is not an easy undertaking and we can assure you it went much more smoothly working the Parks & Tolpa. We are frequently asked if we would work with them again and without hesitation, the answer is yes.

Building a new home has the potential to be a very stressful process. However, working with Steve and Bob made our experience enjoyable, rewarding, and fun. They were good-natured and supportive, but they also gave honest feedback and much needed corrective suggestions for certain aspects of the design. Daily communications helped to facilitate the building process and cemented a great working relationship. We love our new home and are happy to be in it, but we sure do miss having Steve and Bob a part of our daily lives. They are good people and we will continue to consider them as friends as they move on to build other homes for other lucky families.

We could not be any happier with our new home! When we were first introduced Pto Bob and Steve we felt very confident to have them build for us. They didn’t let us down. It was a smooth process because of their help and guidance. They are very professional and respectful, and we would definitely recommend them for their ability and outstanding knowledge.

It was so much fun working with Steve and Bob. We knew from the start these were the right two guys to build our house. They gave us a lot of ideas and choices and being the first time building a house they guided us with lots of patience. All the people they have working for them are down-to-earth and very skilled. They are always there to answer questions and they bend over backwards to please you. With such a large project, you would think there would problems after we moved in. But, hard as try, I can't anything. The house is now our HOME and we LOVE it. Thanks Steve and Bob!

Building a new home can be a daunting task. Steve and Bob were extremely patient, guiding us through the purchase our land up to the final walk through. Their knowledge and years of experience were very helpful in the process. Not a day went by without an update and no question went unanswered. Each step of the way we were empowered to make decisions and we greatly appreciated their willingness to allow any changes we desired. We continue to be amazed with the quality of our new home and are extremely proud to have a Parks and Tolpa sign in our front yard.

We could not have been more pleased with Bob and Steve's work. From the early stages of design, planning, and negotiating to construction and completion, we always felt we were in competent hands. Bob and Steve are great communicators and employ fantastic sub-contractors that were respectful, neat, and timely. I don't hesitate in recommending these guys and I would definitely use them again.

"After the first meeting with Bob and Steve, we knew we could trust them to build our dream home. They stayed in contact with us during every step of the building process, and if they saw something they thought could be changed to make our home better, they brought it to our attention. Steve and Bob built our family a home with quality and care that far exceeded our expectations. If we ever built another house, Parks and Tolpa would be our only call."

After researching several builders, my husband and I decided on Parks and Tolpa, and we were pleasantly surprised that our new home only took three and a half months from start to finish. Anytime a problem occurred, they were right there to solve it. I was also impressed with Bob and his painting crew. They did an exquisite job. I would definitely recommend Parks and Tolpa to anyone who is thinking of building a new home. We feel like our home is a showpiece!

"My wife and I cannot speak highly enough of our experience working with Parks and Tolpa Construction. Steve and Bob are an incredible team and made every step of our homebuilding process very seamless and stress-free.
We broke ground in June and were in our house by the start of November, with everything moving along rapidly but orderly. What we both appreciated the most was how accessible Steve and Bob both were to answer all of the questions we had (and we had multiple questions every day). They do high quality work and their team of vendors and subcontractors were prompt, professional, and easy to work with as well.
We look forward to enjoying our house for years to come and will definitely work with Steve and Bob again in the future (when we find our dream lot on Seneca Lake)!"

"We had our basement completely remodeled by Steve and Bob, and the experience was great. They kept the project on time and also on budget. The initial design was improved tenfold due to the input from Steve, Bob, and the other specialized craftsmen they brought in.
We have had friends in awe over our basement because it has become the showcase room of the house. If we take the professionalism and the experience aside, we just have to say that Steve and Bob are just top-notch guys."

"Steve and Bob did an incredible job with our house from start to finish. We have two small children, and a hectic schedule, and they were always willing to make it work for us! They often think outside the box, and come up with great ideas, based on their long history and experience in the business. They know what to expect, and they were always one step ahead, making the process go smoothly. Bob and Steve stayed right on target with our budget, which was incredibly important to us.
They hire and expect only the best from the people they work with, and the end result is impeccable craftsmanship, which is hard to find these days! We can’t say enough about our overall experience of working with Steve and Bob, and our house is everything we wanted and then some!"

"We hired Bob and Steve to do a large lower level addition. We have known them for several years and always been happy with the quality of their work. Their many years of experience and professional work ended with a beautiful result that was finished ahead of schedule. The design and function of the addition exceeded our expectations.
We were also very happy with their willingness to make changes to suit our needs and the attention to detail that is evident in their work."

"I want to let you know how much we appreciate your work on the front entrance of our house. You took a rough idea and turned it into a stunning reality.
The reasons you've been our choice for renovation and construction for the past fifteen years have not only to do with your flawless workmanship, attention to detail, consideration for your client, and personal integrity. You are also just a wonderful person to work with—reliable, helpful, knowledgeable, honest, and genuinely nice! If only there were more people in the world like you. I can't thank you enough for making our home so beautiful!"

"Everyone says Bob and Steve are two of the nicest guys to work with and it's true. Steve is always trying to save you money and Bob is always bending over backwards to make things right for you. But the true test of their integrity is when you call them 3 or 4 years later on a cold wintry night with an issue and Bob has his boots and coat on and headed out the door before you finish explaining the problem. That shows true character. They stand behind their work."
