Get in the 2018 season line up

Concrete season is short in Vermont.  And that gives us plenty of time for planning our summer and fall jobs.  If the wet, crumbling basement that holds up your entire house is weighing on your mind, contact Parker Construction today for an estimate.  In the off-season, we offer free estimates and explain all your options in detail, but once the roads dry and weather warms, we are hard pressed to find time to visit all jobs.  Parker Construction is accepting

2017 season a shotcrete success!

In 2017, Parker Construction completed 2 major foundation repairs in Central Vermont, and a 16,000 square foot custom concrete skatepark in West Lebanon, New Hampshire.  To accomplish this level of work, we upgraded from spraying dry-mix concrete or “gunite”, to using a new shotcrete pump to apply wet-mix concrete.  Skilled at pneumatic concrete application to achieve superior strength and durability, Parker Construction, Inc is now equipped to apply a stronger concrete in less time, with less waste.  Contact us today

Historic 1815 foundation restored in Downtown Stowe

Parker Construction repaired the foundation on an 1815 building on Main Street in Downtown Stowe.  The building is being restored and renovated for commercial space, and had a crumbling stone foundation.  Parker Construction jacked up the entire building, removed rotten sills, reinforced the stone foundation, installed new support posts and beams, and poured a new concrete slab to finish the basement.  Giving new life and support to old buildings, all in a month’s work! Check out how Gunite is applied,

West Lebanon Park In the News

    The new skatepark feature built by Parker Construction in West Lebanon is featured in the Valley News – learn more about the history of the park, why local residents are eager to skate the new concrete, and future plans for building more features.  This is just the beginning!  Thanks to all who made this first phase possible, and demonstrated what is possible when a community rallies around supporting skateboarding.

New Pictures of Foundation Repair Work

Summer 2015: Parker Construction, Inc repaired this stone foundation in Stowe Vermont.  After the exterior was excavated, exposing the deteriorating old stone foundation, Parker Construction installed metal reinforcements (rebar & remesh grid) then sprayed shotcrete / gunite concrete around the existing foundation.  Sprayed concrete uses less water and has superior strength (6,000 PSI) – ensuring a waterproof, durable, affordable foundation for your home.  Check out these photos and finished results.  

Button up your house

Parker Construction just finished replacing all the siding on a ranch-style home in Plainfield VT.  First, the old siding is removed, and any rotten wood is removed and replaced.  After all the rot is repaired, and a insulation inventory is conducted, Parker Construction works with the homeowner to custom order the best siding and replacement windows – and improve overall insulation – so that the house will be warmer and rot-free for decades to come.

Want a dry basement this Spring?

Many foundations in Vermont leak.  Made from stone and concrete, foundations can deteriorate with time.  Freezing and thawing, flooding, water damage, and poor construction can all lead to moisture problems in your basement.  Parker Construction can reinforce your foundation, and permanently seal out water and moisture.  Affordable prices, quality work.  Keep your basements dry and your foundations strong.
