C & P Remodeling, and Gary Parks, has completed three extensive remodeling projects in our home over the past 12 years, and we feel their work is exceptional....C & P employs skilled carpenters who gave incredible attention to every detail... Throughtout the renovation, Gary kept in constant contact, updating us on progress and returning my phone calls and texts promptly. I would not even consider using another contractor after my positive experiences -- See More

I'm pretty sure that almost 30 years ago we were the first real customers for C & P. They did several rooms for us, including a completely revamped kitchen...All of their work has held up for the entire time, nearly 30 years, no repairs required...The aesthetics (on which they made a LOT of deceisions) have held up remarkably well for the whole time...I can't give them a high enough recommendation -- See More

C & P Remodeling did a great job with our total renovation of a very old building. We were transforming an old resale shop with leaks in every area (roof, foundation, windows, etc.) to a new upscale resale shop. Bob and Gary were -- See More

C&P Remodeling did several large scale remodeling projects in our home and we are extremely pleased with the results.... The most important factors for us when weighing our decision to move forward with C&P was the quality of the work and the ability to complete the scope of work in a reasonable time frame. Our interactions with C&P Remodeling were extremely positive -- See More

We are very satisfied with C & P Remodeling and would happily use them again. Co-owners Gary and Bob did a great job of finishing our kitchen remodel after another contractor failed to complete the project. Since then -- See More

C & P remodeled our kitchen in 2014, our basement in 2007, and the rest of our home - along with adding a two story addition - in 1999. We keep going back to C & P because of their expertise and professionalism. C & P's carpenters are top notch; they are perfectionists who solve problems and attend to the finest details. C & P's subcontractors are also of the highest quality. -- See More

-April 2015, Lake Forest


We own a home that is both a Lake Forest Landmark (2004) and is on the National Historic Register (2006). Most recently, we received the 2015 Lake Forest Preservation Foundation Award for the two-story addition that C & P constructed. The committee was most impressed by the firm's adherence to the vision of the original architect-- See More

-May 2015, Arlington Heights


The project included remodeling one bathroom; reconfiguring, expanding and moving another bathroom; replacing internal plumbing; rebuilding and refinishing the stairs; and refinishing the second floor floors. Since the house is 85 years old, we wanted the character of the house maintained. This meant that there was salvaging and reusing of doors, hardwood flooring, crown molding and base boards. We can't say enough about how happy we are about the way the finished work turned out. The craftsmanship was beautiful-- See More
