I had a chance to tour Merit’s new office at 140 Niagara Street and was very impressed.
Thanks for your part in making the new office as open and inviting as 350 Martindale Road. Your input has always been above and beyond and I still love your work.
Your interior design talents are high above your peers in the industry and certainly reflect Merit’s commitment to excellence. I’m happy the guys have chosen to follow the path that got Merit to where it is today as an industry leader.

“We could not be happier with the outcome of our renovation…”

Thinking outside the box may be an overused phrase, however, when it came to renovating our 53 year old, four level, side split house, we knew that was exactly what would be required.

Upon reading an article about a home design on the Niagara Escarpment, featuring Lex Parker Design Consultants, we were very impressed with the unique exterior and interior design concepts. Our curiosity led to a meeting with Lex Parker during which we quickly determined we had found the right person to spearhead our interior and exterior renovation. Our desire to turn our 1960’s home into an updated contemporary dwelling presented many different challenges. The primary exterior challenge was to create a contemporary design, that would blend in with a mature neighborhood, dominated by traditional architecture. The interior challenges were varied, however with Lex’s creativity and attention to detail, each obstacle was overcome to our complete satisfaction.

Not only did Lex provide unique and imaginative ideas, but he transformed those concepts into practical construction drawings from which we could secure competitive bids from building contractors. In addition to those services, he was instrumental in the development of landscape plans. In both cases he dealt with city by laws, the securing of permits and site supervision of all work.

The adjective most often used by friends, family and strangers who stop on the street to admire the finished product is “stunning”. We could not be happier with the outcome of our renovation and the services provided by Lex Parker Design Consultants.

We had concept designs done for a home renovation by Lex Parker Designs, and that was hands down the smartest money we spent on the renovation! Our designer gave us completely different options than we had ever considered: she rearranged the placement of the living room, dining room, and kitchen. She helped us choose the option that suited us best, and now that the renovation is finished, we’re even more thrilled! It’s absolutely perfect for us, and it just looks like this is the way the house was meant to be set up. Beyond thrilled!
