Q:  When can PHS begin my project?
A:  After the contract is signed and an initial deposit is collected, we will partner with you on a desired start date.  If you have a start date already in mind or a completion deadline, we will do our best to meet your schedule.  Typically projects begin within 2-3 weeks from contact  signing.  This time is used for procurement of materials, crew selection, and management preparation.  In special cases we can expedite this process to best meet your need.

Q:  What hours do the crews work?
A:  Our typical work day begins between 7:30am-8am and ends between 4:30pm-5pm Monday-Friday.  When the project demands it, we are willing to accommodate an alternative work schedule with the customer’s permission or request.  This may include starting earlier, working later, and/or working over the weekend.  Again, all work schedules will be discussed and agreed upon by the customer.

Q:  Does PHS provide free estimates?
A:  Yes, always!  In fact we encourage you to schedule a free detailed estimate with PHS.  This will allow us to give you the most accurate estimate considering scope, schedule, and budget to ensure that there are no surprises.  See “Contact Us” and schedule a time at your convenience.

Q:  How does payment work?
A:  Payment is received as follows: 40% of the total contract cost will be collected as a deposit at the onset of all projects.  For large scale/longer duration projects,  a 30% payment of the total contract cost will be due when the project is at 50% completion.  The final 30% payment is due upon 100% completion.  For smaller scale/shorter duration projects,  60% payment will be due upon completion. 

Q:  Does PHS accept credit cards?
A:  Although most home improvement contractors do not accept any form of credit card payment, we do!   We initiated this payment option as a service to our customers to offer more financial flexibility.  All major credit cards are accepted for a portion of the project or the project as a whole.  A nominal surcharge of  2.75% will be incurred for all credit card payments only to offset the costs incurred by PHS from the credit card companies. 

Q:  What brand of materials does PHS use?
A:  We believe that quality workmanship begins with quality materials.  We pride ourselves on using the highest qualities materials from fasteners, sealants, and fixtures to lumber, trim, and amenities.  We are committed to using top grade products to ensure the best end results on every project for our customers.
