Founded by Ted Leach in 2003, Vail Custom Builders is a small team of highly experienced professionals who share a passion for the Vail Valley alongside that of building and remodeling homes of uncompromising quality. We are a boutique builder, limiting our yearly projects to a select few in order to focus on meeting the expectations of our clients and our own rigorous company standards. Highlighting a wholistic building experience, Vail Custom Builders is interested not only in building extraordinary custom homes but also in building life-long relationships and powerfully positive experiences. Vail Custom Builders embodies the adventurous spirit of the Vail community we serve and call home. The lust for life and challenges we gain from our rugged mountain surroundings inspires our desire to meet your every test and expectation alongside our sincere hope that our projects result not only in the construction of beautiful homes but also the creation of the custom lives and experiences of the people within.
Every one of us at VCB lives here because we are inspired by the natural beauty of the area and the mountain made culture of the Vail Valley Community. Our love for and participation in the Vail lifestyle is the cornerstone of our Vail Custom Built philosophy. We bring an unparalleled enthusiasm into every opportunity we have to showcase our craft by building homes that inspire a lifestyle.
Though VCB is a boutique builder, don’t let that fool you into thinking we’re not capable. We’re small but mighty. We put over 250 combined years of experience to work on a select number of projects purposely. We’re intent on staying fully focused and engaged in each of our builds rather than diluting our process simply to take on more work.
Vail Custom Built refers not only to our projects but also to our process. Our company is built from the culture of the Vail Valley and through the opportunities available in the surrounding wilderness. More than just your expert builder, we’re bikers, hikers, skiers and fishermen. Our lust for the mountain lifestyle is reflected in our appreciation for the natural environment and in our pursuit of relationships, experiences and projects that inspire adventure. We understand what makes the Valley so special, why you want to live here and how to give you an unparalleled, “Custom Built,” experience.
"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."
