Wood Dale, IL – Sep 16, 2015 – Peter Pawelko, co-founder and general manager of Pro Home 1 Inc., was interviewed by Andy Curry for Business Innovators Radio. Since the interview show focuses on helping listeners build a better life, it sought out Pawelko for his expertise as a home and roofing contractor. He was asked to provide straight talk about what homeowners should look for when they need roofing repairs.
Pawelko has built a passion for the home construction industry through an outstanding career of over 20 years. He started as a teenager working on construction jobs, and later obtained degrees in construction management and construction engineering technician. He has also pursued an education in construction law and architectural designs. In 2006 he and partner Chris Swiech opened Pro Home 1 because they felt they had more effective ways to work with customers and help them meet their home remodeling needs. Defying statistics that most small businesses fail within the first five years, Pawelko feels that Pro Home 1 survived because of its laser-focus on providing honest, fair and reliable service.
Although Pro Home 1 assists homeowners with all aspects of home renovation including siding, windows, gutters, soffits and the entire exterior, the Business Innovators interview focused on the roofing aspect of the business. Pro Home 1 is a preferred contractor with Owens Corning, Masterpiece Contractor for DaVinci Roofscapes, and a Certified Installer for Roof Coatings from Gaco. They are most often contacted by customers in Chicago and the surrounding areas who have older roofs that need to be replaced, issues in the attic, leaks happening around their roof and siding, or old insulation that just isn’t doing its job.
“We’re homeowners ourselves and we know what it feels like to invite a stranger into your home to perform a specific job. You’re putting a lot of faith and trust in that person, and we take that responsibility seriously,” commented Pawelko. “Unfortunately there are some disreputable companies in this industry, so we work extra hard to overcome that negative association. We’re not a hard sales organization. We come in, inspect the problem, talk to the homeowners and explain who we are so they can be comfortable with what we are recommending.”
Pawelko says that Pro Home 1 works in a two-step process with homeowners. The first step is an in-home consultation to see what the roofing issues are, and to take pictures of the affected area. They then prepare a 15-20 page report for the homeowner, which presents information, provides options, and reviews their business background and certifications. The company provides good, better, and best options, and provides information so the homeowner can make an informed decision.
“Quite honestly, some contractors don’t have the necessary knowledge, or just want to offer the cheapest price to get the job and move on,” said Pawelko. “But we are looking to build lifetime relationships so customers will want us to come back time after time when they have siding, windows and other jobs down the road. So we try to find out what the homeowner is trying to accomplish, listen to their needs, and provide options in a no-pressure environment. We are proud of the work we do, and want our customers to be proud of their homes, too.”
