The large aluminum awning covering our deck collapsed under the weight of a very heavy snowfall (January 2014), blocking the back door. I called Doug Barker of Barker & Son Construction, and he was at my house in about an hour to assess the situation. After a few minutes, he had a bid ready. The crew doing the work showed up that afternoon to see what was needed, and had the work completed the next day! Amazing! I am very pleased with the timeliness, price, and quality of workmanship provided by Barker & Son Construction Company.

We would give Barker & Son a failing grade for the renovation work they did on our house. If you are considering to work with Barker & Son, our recommendation is to have a lawyer review whatever you intend to sign BEFORE you do so. We regret not having that protection. And put EVERYTHING in writing. If you have a verbal discussion, send an email afterward reiterating the content of that discussion, and ask for clarification if Barker & Son disagrees.

There were three things we expected from Barker & Son:

(1)write a contract that covered everything on the architectural plans we provided
(2)manage the project from start to finish, and
(3)provide excellent customer service.

On all three counts Barker & Son receive a failing grade from us.

Because we are limited in the length of the review we can leave, we have to omit the details. But this was not our first major renovation our previous house was an estate sale home that we spent $75K initially renovating so we have had experience dealing with contractors on major renovations. (That process was unbelievably smooth, but it was in Virginia, so we couldnt rehire the same guy.) We will never consider hiring Barker & Son again.

Barker and Son recently completed a screened in patio that had been a dream of ours for several years. Doug came to our home one Sunday afternoon and reviewed the many pictures and notes we had stuffed in an old file. He took his time to understand what we wanted and our budget. The next week he had a detailed design and began to work on permits. His meticulous attention to detail and his care for our home, made us feel, from day one, we made the right choice. The patio is absolutely beautiful. It is an addition we are proud to have and will use for many years to come. I highly recommend Barker and Son for anyone with a dream.

Barker and Son Construction did an outstanding job for me. I couldn't be happier. Doug Barker was timely, courteous and totally professional. His crew did a great job and cleaned up so well that you could hardly tell I had anything done. They worked on our deck and really made the "new section" blend in with the old section seamlessly. Like I said, I couldn't be happier with Barker and Son Construction.

This company did a kitchen and bath remodel for us and we couldn't be happier. They were in and out, cleaned up after themselves and the work was impeccable. We'll be doing a basement remodel next year and we will definitely be hiring them back.

We had Barker & Son out to create 2 patios, stone steps and a retaining wall in back. They did a fantastic job, especially with the stone steps. We were able to createa line of credit thru their company which enabled us to fund the project. None of the other companies had this option.

We hired Doug and his company for a complete backyard makeover including a paver patio, pool, fence and pergola. They came out, created a complete backyard plan for us, gave us three options on pool layouts/prices, did an architectural drawing that we loved, and a layout that worked great in our backyard. Everything turned out great, I would recommend this company to anyone.

These guys did a GREAT job on my fence and deck!! They really knew what they were doing. Very quick, cheaper than the other 2 bids we got. I'd have them back anytime.

Doug Barker came out and was very professional. He created a french drain in our backyard to steer the flow of water out of our property. The water was supposed to be forced out of our backyard and into the public street area so that it would properly drain.

Unfortunately, they made the drain end in the corner of our back yard. There is now a very large swamp that will never go away because that is where the drain ends.

I tried getting them to fix their problem, but they refused, unless I paid them an additional fee to come out and create a new system (their new fee was more than the cost of the drain).

They also broke 6 sprinkler heads along the way which I was forced to pay for.

Be weary!!!!!
