Vail Custom Builders is poised to lead our clients through the building process. We take their dream, facilitate its design, and ensure it is built to our own rigorous standards. From the start we evaluate potential homesites and properties, analyzing value and identifying risks. Then we facilitate a plan and help assemble the right team of professional designers, consultants, and trade partners to get it all on paper.
Producing the highest quality product is our goal. And, for us, quality control starts long before construction begins. We get involved from the beginning, when the design process starts, where we listen and learn about our clients’ priorities and the intent of the design team. We help set goals for the project, then conduct research and provide insight on construction feasibility and efficiency. As the design evolves and develops, we prepare detailed estimates and critical path schedules. We also investigate Value Engineering opportunities and present ways of cutting costs without compromising quality or design intent. This collaborative approach enables our clients to make smart, informed decisions before breaking ground.
We feel a home should be built to last for generations. This means working with architects and engineers to get systems and infrastructure designed properly and specifically for each project. It means checking and double checking that everything from concrete to waterproofing to interior finishes are being installed to the highest standards; it means scrutinizing details and making careful, painstaking efforts to do things right. Good enough isn’t good enough if it’s going to stand the test of time.
Consistent and clear communication is one of our top priorities and the backbone of our business. Throughout the construction process we conduct weekly meetings with our clients and the design team to stay ahead of needed information, document all decisions, and engage in ongoing discussions on budget and schedule. Our weekly progress reports along with photos and videos from the jobsite are one way we keep our clients informed . . . and often times entertained.
Long after we have completed building or remodeling a home, our Customer Care Division is here to help with warranty items, minor repairs, general maintenance, and special projects. It is our goal to take the worry out of caring for a home and to provide peace of mind that it will maintain its value long into the future.
"Working with Ted Leach and the entire VCB team to build our Colorado legacy home was an unbelievable experience. The professionalism, attention to detail and personal involvement by the entire team made the process truly enjoyable. I’m so glad I put my trust in VCB and highly recommend VCB to anyone thinking about building a home in the Vail Valley."
"From our first meeting through the final walk-through, Vail Custom Builders made the process of building a custom home both enjoyable and worry-free. We were kept appraised of the schedule through weekly meetings which made the process efficient and allowed our home to be completed in what seemed to be record time."
"Ted Leach and his crew handled a very large and complicated addition/renovation project on my house and did a terrific job. They started and finished on schedule and were extremely conscientious about maintaining quality workmanship throughout the project. I felt both the construction and management process were excellent. I would highly recommend this company."
"I also can not say enough about Vail Custom Builders’ integrity and that of the buildings that they produce. Ted made selections on structure that demonstrated a commitment to quality and durability in areas that most owners would not understand for years to come."
"Throughout the building process you were patient with our changes and indecision and continually showed us the pros and cons of the different choices we needed to make. We appreciate that you kept us updated on construction progress throughout the project, and that you were as concerned as we were about staying within our budget."
