We had a hit and miss experience with Peg. It started really positively and ended just...meh. The work itself is nice, and we're happy with the kitchen. It just took a lot of effort to get to the completion stage, and the miscommunication that happened throughout was off-putting, and we wouldn't use them again.
Positives: initial walkthrough good, clear timelines and line by line proposal, nice contractors who were respectful of our space.
Negatives: poor communication as the project proceeded, inconsistent handoff between contractors and the office staff who managed the project, which included misquoting costs
Our initial walk through was great - we got a lot of work quoted from them and Allan was very detailed in his assessment of what needed to be done. We had a kitchen planning session at Ikea, where Allan provided measurements for the countertop and adjusted our plans. We were happy to proceed from that point, and we had a lot of back and forward after that with Michelle to identify the work we were going to prioritize, and the timelines for that. We scoped down the project to just do the kitchen to get it done by the holidays and agreed we'd revisit some of the other work before signing a contract. I'm really glad we did that instead of committing to doing our kitchen, bathroom, and stairs with Peg. As the work commenced, there was some disconnect between the initial conversations we had with Allan, and then with some of the contractors who came in to do the work, and it took a lot of conversation to ensure we were all on the same page. The electrician and the countertop person had to come multiple times because they weren't scheduled at the right times, the countertop that we'd had an initial quote for based on Allan's initial measurements ended up costing double, because Allan's initial measurements weren't passed on to the countertop company at the time of quote, the cabinet people didn't install the cover pieces we'd discussed as noone had told them to do that, and when the drywall people took down our old architraves and door trims, we were asked if we wanted Peg to replace them, said yes, and then this just didn't happen until we chased it.
For the first 4 weeks we got lots of communication about any changes to the schedule or the timeline and had a lot of back and forward about the above details. As we approached the end of the project, that communication faltered. I found myself having to chase up answers and updates.
The majority of the work was due to be completed the week before Christmas. I had a conversation with Michelle on the phone where she said she was trying to get someone out to do the last bits of work before the holidays, and she'd get back to me. Then I had radio silence for two weeks. Noone answered the office phone, emails, there was no out of office message saying they were on a holiday shut down. Then there was no acknowledgement or apology that they left us hanging and ignored all my voicemails and emails. The work finally got done, 4 weeks after it was supposed to, but even that wasn't smooth as between our initial walkthrough and the final finishing touches, Peg forgot what we'd agreed and had to redo the work. We didn't have a final walkthrough on their work before final payment, and by that point we were just done with them and a few small details, like poorly applied sealant and misaligned trim, we have dealt with ourselves to just call it a day and be done.
