How We Work

Dave portrait 1 crop transparent hi-resGerlach Construction makes remodeling your home easier and more enjoyable than you ever imagined.


Here are a few things to know about how we work:

  • We typically do only one job at a time, so you get all our attention and resources.
  • Are you working with an architect? If so, we can use your architect’s design. But if you don’t have an architect, we’ll help you create a design for your dream home.
  • We don’t provide phone estimates or email ballpark figures. Instead, I’d like to  meet with you in person and talk about your project in detail. At that point I can give you a much more precise estimate.
  • The majority of our projects are done on a Cost Plus a Fee basis. The costs are  the actual expenses of time, management, labor and materialrequired to  complete the job. The fee is a mutually agreed mark-up of those costs. Most of our clients prefer this method of payment, as we’re paid only for the services performed.  However, we also offer a Stipulate Sum, which is a fixed rate, regardless of costs incurred.
  • We want you to feel confident about the construction we do. That’s why we follow the National Association of Home Builder’s Residential Construction Performance Guidelines and warranty all of our work.
