Client Reviews of Our Work
My wife and I hired Timberlake Design & Build to build a home for us in June 2018. We actually hired them the day after we fired our first builder. We built a 4,600 square foot waterfront home on the Chesapeake Bay (subject to all the critical area laws and regulations). The most difficult part of our build was the land we had picked. It was a wetland which couldn’t even support the weight of a car without it sinking. Timberlake DB worked directly with our engineers and their own soil expert in an extremely detailed manner to determine the most effective and cost efficient way to build on this lot. They addressed the soil bearing capacity issues as well the high water table in a way that now you wouldn’t even know we built on a wetland. Our first builder told us we couldn’t even build on this lot and Timberlake took over worked with us every step of the way and delivered a home that exceeded our expectations in every way.
Aside from the site work and the difficulty building on this lot Dave and the design team went above and beyond to accommodate some changes we wanted to their standard model. The pricing was known upfront and was fair for everything we changed. We added windows, moved doors and walls where we wanted and it all turned out exactly as planned. Even some of the smallest changes were available such as installing a high rise garage doors to make room for a automotive lift in the future.
During construction again the Timberlake team delivered. During construction I was stopping by the house often and checking on progress. Once construction started it moved along very quickly and I was kept in the loop on any delays. There were no delays through the entire project as a result of Timberlake, they scheduled and worked as promised. I pointed out issues as we went through the construction process with minor things that arose and the team worked to fix them as they occurred so that during our final walk-through only minor touch ups were needed.
The last thing that has stood out to my wife and I is the support we have gotten from the team after the completion of our house. Andy and Dave did a fantastic job explaining all of our homes systems to us, the warranties we have and who to reach out to with any issues. We have had no issues aside from minor adjustments needed as the house settles. We reached out recently on two doors which were now not closing properly due to settlement and someone was out to fix the doors within 2 business days.
Great job Timberlake, Dave and Andy we will be recommending you to anyone we know looking into building a home and we appreciate all of your hard work!
Very happy with Dave & the entire team at Timberlake Design Build. They built our home in record time to a somewhat demanding list of requirements. Dave & crew went above and beyond to deliver.
We worked with Dave through virtually every aspect of the home planning, building and settling. Timberlake was great throughout! While they don’t have a lot of building in Montgomery County Maryland, Dave and team was diligent, professional and informative throughout. We feel grateful to have found the Timberlake Design team and are thrilled with our home.
We hired Timberlake Design Build for the second time to renovate a 1997 Colonial. The project involved whole house renovations of approximately 5,000 sf.
We were extremely pleased with Timberlake’s knowledge of industry practices, identification of great vendors and suppliers, management of the building process, and ability to accommodate changes. The management personnel of Timberlake are a pleasure to deal with. They offered creative solutions to design challenges and executed the design beautifully. The project was on budget and finished on time. We would have no hesitation working with Timberlake Design Build in the future.
