Chesapeake Design & Build customer testimonials


When we bought our home in 1991, we called Chesapeake Design and Build to put a new roof on the 1972 structure. We were so impressed with John Fearnow’s professionalism, speediness, and integrity that we have only used Chesapeake Design and Build for our construction needs since then. Over the years, John has done a number of big jobs for us—including installing new skylights on our screened-in porch and installing insulation all along the overhang our a split foryer home—and all of them have turned out very well. Most recently, John helped us when our roof was destroyed by falling branches in a microburst. Even before the storm was over, John sent someone out to tarp the roof and prevent further water damage. Then he worked everything out with our insurance company so that we had a brand new roof in just a couple of weeks! In our experience, Chesapeake Design and Build is the best contracting company in the area. You can always trust John Fearnow to give you the best advice, honest appraisals, and wonderful workmanship. Posted by: Bill and Janice / Arnold, Md.

I was recently faced with the challenge of getting my old home ready for sale. Chesapeake Design installed new sinks, installed new light fixtures, fixed leaks in the shower, and patched up holes in my walls caused by a faulty window installation. If you’re faced with home improvement or major remodel , I would give Chesapeake my highest recommendation. Posted by: Robbie / Baltimore, Md.

In our experience John was a man of his word. He came and did the estimate for our new roof when he said he would. His price was fair from the beginning. Others tried to gouge us and then would eventually come down to John’s price. John’s team came and did the work. We had a small clean up issue and John didn’t hesitate to correct it with haste. Overall it was a great experience and we would highly recommend John to any of our friends and family. He was honest, reliable and did good work. That’s pretty much all there is.

I own several homes, and John has worked on all of them at one time or another over the years. John has put in new roofs, done flooring and tile, put in new doors, built a new deck, and replaced plumbing fixtures for me. He has always been on time and on estimated cost. He guarantees his work and follows through on that guarantee. He is honest, reliable and dependable, and does excellent work. I can highly recommend him for any home repair or building project.
