Frequently Asked Questions
Pennsylvania requires all contractors to enforce a 1-year workmanship warranty. At Pellak Construction, we’re so confident in our craftsmanship that we triple that warranty, backing our work up with a 3-year period. In the case that something happens during this period and is covered by the warranty and contract, we’ll come and fix it for you immediately.
Slight changes during a project are usually not a big deal. These could include adding or removing lighting from layout prior in rough in, adding or changing paint colors, etc.
Significant changes during a project usually can be accommodated, however they tend to affect the schedule and the budget pretty hard. These would include cabinet or countertop changes, changes to the type of flooring, configuration changes, etc.
We like to cover as much as possible in the design phase, and provide floor plans and 3D layouts of most projects to try to eliminate changes as much as possible once the onsite work begins.
When working with Pellak Construction, you will first have a phone conversation with a member of our team to discuss your project to ensure that we are a good fit. For a more productive conversation, it helps if you send over some pictures or videos of the space you’re looking to have remodeled.
Next, we’ll have an onsite visit to your home where we’ll discuss your project in detail and take some rough measurements and pictures. If possible, we’ll provide you with an estimated range for your project at this point.
The next steps include entering into either a design agreement or a proposal for the scope of work.
A design agreement is usually used if you don’t have a clear vision of what you want or need in your project, are unsure of your budget, or need help visualizing your project before moving forward.
A proposal is used when there is a clear scope of work from the initial meeting and you already have a general idea of materials you wish to use or a budget to work within.
Once the design agreement and/or proposal are complete, we’ll create a home improvement contract as required by PA law. This contract will include the scope of work, any plans if a design agreement was entered into, selections and/or allowances, and payment terms.
After the contract is signed, all final plans will be put together, design choices will be made, materials will be ordered, permits obtained and scheduling of the project will be put into motion.
Prior to the start of the project, we’ll have an onsite walkthrough to go over any last minute details, obtain access to your home, discuss what the first day of the project will look like, introduce members of the construction team, and determine where utility shut offs are located.
Now the fun part, construction time! Your project will now get underway, where our team will come to your home and get to work. They will execute the scope of work promptly and professionally, treating your home like it was their own.
At the end of your project, our team of cleaners will come in and get to work cleaning up the work area and their way out of your home.
A final walkthrough will be done with a member of our team to make sure we completed the project to your expectations.
Scheduled for about one week after completion, we will have a photographer come in to take final pictures of the space and check in how you’ve settled in.
Now it’s time for you to enjoy your newly remodeled space.
Of course. You can refer to our reviews page or reach out to us directly. We want you to be as comfortable as possible with your decision to work with us. That’s why we’re fully transparent with all of our past projects.
Yes. Besides our team of certified craftsmen, we partner with trusted tradespeople from PA. Vetted by owner Drew, their work meets the highest standards in the industry.
Unless you’re making simple changes such as replacing your floors, painting, or changing your cabinets, permits are required for remodeling projects, especially when layout reconfiguration is present. We’ll take care of all permits and documentation so that you don’t have to deal with any paperwork.
