This Month's Tip


Go With Your Gut When Selecting a Contractor

Choosing a general contractor to work on your home is a very big decision, if not the most important decision on a construction project. Your contractor will be in your home from morning to night seeing you in all phases of the day for weeks and sometimes months. Many contractors have different approaches to producing a bid and closing a deal. One thing to be concerned about is the confident low bidding contractor, we call this being "vague". This type of contractor will come in and be very confident about your remodel project and give you a low bid and talk the talk. When the project starts he will then bring up what he calls surprises or change orders and end up charging you more and more money and in the end, the low bidder becomes the high bidder. To the construction tip of the month is to "go with your gut" and check references.






Oregon Trail Remodeling

Carlsbad and Encinitas Remodeling Construction Company and Water Damage Restoration Company

Portland Oregon General Contractors


Oregon Trail Remodeling general contractors specialize in remodeling, water/flood damage repair, and fire restoration services. The construction company was founded by Jeremy Parsons and Marc Lisak. Both Jeremy and Marc have remodeled numerous properties over the years and since creating OTR they have helped many families create their dream homes and restore their homes after damage from a flood or fire.

Both Jeremy and Marc have learned what it takes to improve a home's look, value, and comfort while keeping the target budget in focus. Some general contractors try to upsell to increase their profits. You won't find that practice when you deal with OTR construction because it's reputation has been built on a foundation of doing what is right for the customer and within the limits of the budget.

Our Mission

Our goal is to have a satisfied customer through all phases of the remodeling or construction project and to complete the project on time and within budget.

We strive to exceed our customer's expectations with professional workmanship and attention to detail. We also aim to make the home as livable as possible during construction.

As general contractors, adhere to these values when building and remodeling home, kitchens, bathrooms and repairing flood damage.


Our construction company has locations in Encinitas, California and West Linn, Oregon.

Kitchen Remodeling

We take special pride in our kitchen remodels as you can see from the pictures in our photo gallery. A typical Oregon Trail remodel involves updating the counters to granite or marble and the installation of new cabinets, sinks, fixtures, floors, appliances and windows. Kitchens are usually a priority for the woman of the house and we strive to make her happy and to make the kitchen a showplace.

Bathroom Remodeling

Bathrooms are telling about the age of a house and they can make a significant difference when selling a house. We have a track record of updating bathrooms and we can also make them senior friendly. This includes custom walk in showers, safety grab bars and wheel chair accessibility.
Oregon Trail Remodeling can make the master bath a work of art as you can see in our photo gallery. We have extensive experience in the design and construction of modern bathrooms which have state-of-the-art steam shower systems. We have also done total make-overs of bathrooms in older homes to enhance the value and saleabilty of the property.

Fire, Water and Mold Damage

We have specialized training and experience with insurance claims. Some companies use us exclusively for fire and water damage restorations when insurance claims are involved because of our consistent quality and fair pricing. We bill directly to the insurance companies using the most up-to-date Xactimate software which is the industry standard.
We recognize that a water or fire loss is a disruption to your family and lifestyle, and we empathize by moving quickly and efficiently making sure we do it right the first time and within budget. We want you to return to your life as quickly and as painlessly as possible. With each insurance damage claim, we continue to maintaine our outstanding reputation with homeowners and insurance companies.

Basement and Attic Finishing

Completion of an unfinished basement or unfinished attic is one of the most cost effective ways to improve the value of a house for resale. We enjoy turning unfinished space or your storage space into prime living space. We provide conceptual design services and we will be there from demolition to a neighborhood warming open house.

Countertops and Cabinets

Bathroom cabinets and kitchen cabinets can easily be upgraded to five star living space with the addition of marble or granite counters. We have a lot of experience with these upgrades and we take great pride in the finished product. We can complete your countertop with a beautiful backslash and undermount sink. Take a look at some of our completed cabinets and counters in our photo gallery.
