Review by in Mount Airy, MD
After getting multiple bids for a complete kitchen remodel, we chose Pickett's Choice Builders as our contractor. Chris was flexible with us during the initial quoting phase, very responsive via email to questions or changes to the scope of work, and allowed for changes to the contract to accommodate our desire to complete parts of the project ourselves. We were nervous at first due to most projects/reviews seeming to be related to decks/bathrooms, but the skills associated with those applications certainly apply to Kitchen remodels. Due to our cabinets coming in much earlier than anticipated, Chris was amendable to starting our renovation ahead of the contract start date which ultimately put his initial planning of teams/subs out of sync with other their other jobs. They are a small group, so you have to expect some days of down time as there are more jobs than just 1 going on at a given time. Working from home, I got to see up close and personal the entire project and the crew is AWESOME. Matt, Jason, and Gary were the main guys on site at all times and they were a trip. Solid dudes all around, and help make sure we account for any potential changes. Their music choices were spot on. With my wife having a specific eye for how everything should come together and not actually being on site to make decisions, they were very accommodating to the constant FaceTime calls/texts for explanations and final decisions. Our remodel was fully permitted, inspected and passed final inspections. As with any project, there are always things that could go better or be "painless" but construction is a game of problem solving and managing expectations. I measure the people I work with on how they react to challenges and maneuver around them, and the Pickett team will definitely do their best to help you. As always, plan funds for contingencies and cost overruns, as there will always be surprises once you start ripping things apart (or adding to the scope like our case). All in all, we VERY happy with how our kitchen turned out and are certain you will be too if you hire Pickett's Choice Builders.

We couldn't be happier with the bathroom remodel from Pickett's Choice Builders! Chris and his crew gave me the exact bathroom I have been dreaming of! Their work was always top quality and the crew couldn't have been easier to work with! We are already planning other jobs for them to do for us!

Pickett's Choice Builders was hired to replace our tired and worn wooden deck with a Trex Transcend composite deck. Chris Pickett and his team were professional and friendly from the original estimate through the completion of the project. Our questions were answered timely and we received weekly updates on the status of the project. The deck was finished on time and the quality of the workmanship was top notch. We are extremely happy with the finished product. We would highly recommend Pickett's Choice Builders.

Pickett’s Choice just finished a complete remodeling of our master bathroom, we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. His men are true professionals that were on the job every day. One of his men completely tiled the shower and floor, it looks amazing. The project took a little longer than we expected, but it was well worth the wait. We highly recommend Pickett’s Choice if you want good quality workmanship.

Project: Build a Garage
Chris helped in revising the initial drawings in order to create more living space. We designed the 2 + story addition and breezeway to fit with the existing house. Pickets Choice used quality materials, the best subcontractors, and great employees. As problems arose, they were taken care of promptly. We highly recommend this company.

Review by in Sykesville, MD
Chris and his crew built a master suite on top of my garage and family room. Throughout the process, Chris communicated with me almost daily. The quality of the work was excellent and we are very happy with what they did for us. The workers were knowledgeable, easy to talk to and proactive about asking questions around any details that I forgot to mention. They also made good recommendations about things like the style of roof and buying a new garage door opener. They even did a little bit of extra work for no extra charge, even though the contract allowed them to. Overall, they exceeded my expectations.

We recently hired Picketts Choice to replace our old wooden deck with Trex composite decking. Chris Pickett is the owner operator and was really a pleasure to work with. He took time to explain the project and recommended that we visit a showroom that had many Trex decks on display. We settled on Island Mist with a cocktail rail and solar lighting. Overall I am very pleased with the finished project. Chris and the crew that handled our project were professional and communicated with us throughput the entire project. I asked many questions about how they were going to do certain things and they were very patient and explained things in detail. I would highly recommend Picketts Choice.

We renovated our downstairs' bathroom. Chris walked us through the project when going over the contract. He put us in touch with companies to pick out our tile, and granite vanity top. His team did outstanding work and assisted us in resolving a couple issues unrelated to the renovation. The bathroom looks great!!

Review by in Owings Mills, MD
Chris and his team did a great job on our master bathroom remodeling. It is a no hassel and pleasant experience. Their charges are very reasonable but put in quality work. A small example shows his committment to customer satisfaction: we initially wanted glass shelves that matched our shower glasses, but decided to use cheaper materials due to higher quote than expected from the glass contractor Chris introduced to us. In the end, Chris helped install the glass shelves for no additional cost to us at all. Some work Chris does not do such as granite countertops and shower glasses. However he recommends others who usually does quality work with reasonable charges. If we wanted to get a couple quotes from other contractors, there was never pressure to use his recommended contractors. We end up using his recommended granite contractor, but not the shower glass contractor since we found one who offered the type of installation we preferred at a better price. Chris was cool with that. We would definite work with him again for other remodeling projects and highly recommend him.

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
