I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Dave Prokopchak of Summit Design for 27 years. During that time he has used our custom cabinets in many of his projects. I have always been impressed with his attention to detail and the quality of his work. He has a schedule for every job, finishes on time, and does not miss a detail. The finished job reflects his talent and ability as a designer and builder. I recommend him to my customers with the utmost confidence.

As a very satisfied client of Summit Design & Construction for more than ten years, I am pleased to give my complete endorsement to the Company and its owner, Dave Prokopchak. The most important quality any builder must possess is integrity and second is technical competence. Dave demonstrates both of these qualities in abundence. The same may be said of the carpenters any of the sub-contractors who he has sent to my home.

Over a long period of time I have engaged Summit to perform the following jobs: 1) Re-modeling and re-building of four baths, including marble and ceramic work and all new cabinetry 2) Replacing hardwood floors. 3) Creating the design and build-out of an elevator in such a way as to minimize the loss of usable floor space and preserve the original floor plan in our forty-year old three level home. 4) Re-building and re-plumbing the laundry room. With each of these projects the work has been done to the highest standards, eliminating "call-backs" for problems. Also, the work was accomplished in a timely fashion with a minimum of construction mess (which was cleaned on a daily basis). Finally, I would add that Dave is a gentleman. He is a pleasure to deal with, reasonable and accommodating.

The fees Summit charges are appropriate for the quality of services they professionally provide their clientele. Please contact me, if further references are needed.

Summit Design and Construction entered into our lives in July of 2001 when we considered the purchase of our current house. We were struck by the craftsmanship and architectural features of the house. In particular, the sun room was a fantastic space. We learned that this portion of the house was an addition performed under the guidance of Dave Prokopchak, leader of the Summit team.

Like all new homeowners, we were hopeful to make some changes. Little did we know what changes we would face in the next few years. William was born, and therefore we needed our basement finished to accommodate my father-in-law’s 4 day stay per week to help take care of William. This evolved into a 3000 square foot, 2 story addition which would become my in-laws retirement home – in exchange for the living space they agreed to take care of William during the day. Aiden came next so we renovated our kitchen and then converted our garage to a master bedroom suite.

Through all these life changes, some of which were very stressful and in the face of several employment transitions, Dave and Summit were there for us to provide consultation on how to change or create space to meet our needs, stay in our budget and maintain architectural consistency and integrity.

At this point, Dave and the entire Summit team has become part of the family so perhaps this endorsement is not as objective as it could be. This relationship has evolved in such a manner because Dave is a person and runs a company of unique integrity. He tells the truth, stands by his quality work, and really wants to meet all the needs of his customers. Our lives are richer for having worked with Summit in the four renovations of our existing space. We love the space and appreciate it every day.

It has been my great pleasure to work with Dave Prokopchak and Summit Construction over the past twenty plus years on countless residential projects. Dave and his team provide high quality construction, consistent performance, and reasonable construction costs.

In addition, everyone in the organization is professional and pleasant to work with, and they have provided great service to our mutual clients for many years. Of particular note is Dave’s ability to thoroughly and accurately budget construction costs at an early stage of a project in order to help clients and architects determine the scope and feasibility of a project. It is without hesitation that I recommend Dave Prokopchak and Summit Construction for any residential project.

Dave remodeled our kitchen and two bathrooms. During our remodeling process, his subcontractors also re roofed us and fixed an extensive electrical problem on our deck. We couldn't be happier with him or his entire extended “crew”. They were unfailingly polite and professional. Dave and Jim always seemed to find an innovative solution to every problem we had to get us to a wonderful outcome. The work they do is beautiful and they stay on time and within budget. All our friends were astonished we were in our new kitchen exactly in the promised time and at how smoothly our entire remodeling process went. We love everything they did and are looking forward to working with Summit on our next remodeling job!
