We have a time-tested process that works for everyone. From a comprehensive interview to understand your wants and needs, to working closely with your architect and designer from the start; we tap into a variety of channels to ensure your plans and vision are executed flawlessly from beginning to end.

From there, we gather all the necessary front-end documentation including architectural plans, specifications, engineering, and pricing. We provide a detailed good faith estimate, construction schedule, qualifications and detailed bid documents.

We understand that nobody likes surprises when building their custom home, so we are completely transparent and detailed throughout our process. This ensures you know exactly what you are getting for the price. It is in everyone’s best interest to tightly control quality as well as costs.

Once everything is approved, construction begins. We assemble the best team of experienced contractors based on the particular needs for the home. Unique to Phillip Wentzel, we have an experienced project superintendent on-site throughout the entire construction process to ensure that quality, standards, safety, deadlines, and budget are all met. Our superintendents have an average of 25 years of construction experience and know what to look for. They know how to recognize any potential problems and have the expertise and experience to solve them, ensuring the project runs smoothly from start to finish. We produce daily reports and progress photos, and keep you informed every step of the way.

Once your home is built, we provide an outstanding service and warranty program as well as detailed homeowner maintenance guidelines.

Phillip Wentzel Custom Homes was originally founded in 1910 as PWCampbell. Phillip Wentzel Campbell started the company as a general contractor in the Pittsburgh area constructing stunning, iconic wrap-around porches and other general construction projects. Since then, we have experienced dozens of significant historical events, market ups and downs, and changes in homeowner needs and styles. One thing that has remained constant: our role as a leading custom residential developer committed to satisfying the needs of a growing number of clients each year.

Being family-owned and managed has been in the DNA of Phillip Wentzel since the very beginning. We have grown into a fourth-generation, full-range professional firm providing consulting and construction services. With a strong reputation for quality work, more than two-thirds of our projects come from referrals or repeat clients.

Astounded by the Workmanship

“After a long and deliberate thought process, we made the decision to build our dream house with you. It was the best decision we could have made! It is better than we could have even imagined. Every person who enters our house is astounded by the workmanship that is apparent at every turn. If the need arose, I wouldn’t hesitate to build with your company again. Everyone should have that kind of experience when building a custom home!”
