Yelinko Builders was originated in 1973 as a cabinet making and general remodeling business that was owner
operated by Robert Sr. Sons Robert Jr. and Michael learned the trade by working with Robert Sr. during their
teenage and young adult years. In 1988 after graduating from technical school the brothers became partners
in the business. Later that year, the family built their first custom home. It was this house that shifted
the focus of the business to home building and remodeling. 24 years later Yelinko Builders continues to be
owner operated by the Yelinko brothers as a PA registered, fully insured LLP who are award winning members
of the Lehigh Valley Builders Association and certified green home professionals.
While Building a custom home with us you will speak directly to owners Bob or Mike throughout the
construction process with any questions or concerns about your project. This communication combined with
our constant effort to leave no loose ends pretty much eliminates annoying checklist items at the end of
the job. Due to our relentless efforts for quality workmanship we have very few callbacks for warranty
work and consider this a feather in our caps.
Materials and Craftsmanship
For almost 25 years, Yelinko Builders has been building custom and spec. homes with the highest quality
materials consistently exceeding industry standards. For additional information, please refer to our standard
specifications page. Our craftsmanship and attention to detail comes directly from our cabinet-making background.
When building a cabinet, everything has to be precise– – all of your work is visible. We use that
same philosophy when building a house although, everything is not visible. Things like framing, rough plumbing,
electrical, HVAC and insulation are still done to the best of our ability as if they will be on display at the
end of the project.
Your Lot or Ours
We can build your home on your lot, on one of ours or we can help you find the lot that is perfect for you.
Take advantage of our knowledge and that of our preferred realtors– there are many things to consider when
purchasing a lot from school districts and resale value to utilities and topography. Let us assist you with
this important step. Please visit the preferred realtors on our home page.

Green Building and Energy Efficiency
The single greatest environmental impact of a home is most likely its ongoing use of energy, so building for
low energy use is one of our main priorities. Cost-effective ways to take advantage of the sun, better ways to
insulate the structure and making the best use of building materials are all components in green building.
Employing these methods takes careful planning and execution, some potentially increasing costs during
construction while others can actually reduce costs and collectively save on energy consumption and long-term
To deliver high-quality, cost-effective projects on schedule and to value the importance of our relationships
with clients, vendors and employees.
