How long have you been in business?
We have been in business as a family and working in the Northern Chicagoland area as well as the Northern and Western Suburbs and North Shore area since 1987.
Who is the owner of your firm?
Zbigniew or “Ziggy” is the official owner of our firm, however three generations of our family work full-time in our business.
How was your firm started?
Our firm was started by Zbigniew Sterczynski and his son-in-law Robert Pindral in 1987. Robert and Zbigniew had moved our family here from Poland the year before in order to start their new business in the States. In Poland Zbigniew worked as a building engineer and also owned his own successful construction company while Robert did mechanical and electrical work. Robert’s technical know-how perfectly complemented Zbigniew’s experience running his own businesses and over the years the two of them as well as the rest of our family worked together to build a now growing and very successful business.
Can you help me design my project or show me some samples?
Yes and yes. We can help you design your project so that it turns out exactly the way that you want it to and we can also bring you samples from our suppliers. We can also get any other brands and materials you might want to make sure your project turns out the way that you want it to.
Is the person who came to my home just a salesman?
No. Our firm is entirely family-owned and operated and we do not employ salesmen. Zbigniew and Kasia, are the ones who give estimates and meet with our clients. They are both highly experienced contractors and home-remodeling contractors and they will not only help you figure out what you want to do, but they will also plan out your entire project with you from start to finish.
Who will be in charge of the work done on my home?
Both Zbigniew and Kasia will be directing the work at your home. Zbigniew will handle most of the business matters and Kasia will be there on a day-to-day basis making sure that our crews stay on task and finish on time. They will always be available to speak or meet with you if you have any concerns.
How will I know what you sort of work you will be doing on my home and what it will cost?
We always go over every detail of your project in our estimate and before you sign a contract. Our goal is always to make sure that your project is done the way that you want and that you are always aware of the costs of our work before we get started. If there are ever any unforeseeable costs or difficulties or if you change your mind about something while we are working, we will always notify you of the related changes as well as their costs.
I’m working on a budget, does that mean that I’ll have to sacrifice quality?
Absolutely not. We understand that these days many people are on budgets but that they also want the highest quality service and materials for their home remodeling project. Our commitment is to always make sure that you stay within your budget and we will do everything that we can to make sure that you get the best deals on your materials as well as the most efficient service. We are very flexible in terms of the price ranges that we can work in and we will always do everything that we can to make sure that you get the absolute highest quality work done at a price that you are comfortable with.
How do I know that I received a fair price for my project?
