Consistent and clear communication is the thread woven through the fabric of our process. From our initial introduction, we are fully committed to a transparent working relationship. We’ll listen to your ideas and help you prioritize your needs. Throughout the project we conduct weekly meetings, document all decisions, provide written progress reports and engage in ongoing discussions on budget and schedule. You will always have our direct line, our complete attention and our honest response. We believe good communication moves projects forward and keeps everyone working towards a unified goal.
The most critical phase of the building process is the preparation phase. Though VCB can plug into your build at any time, by incorporating us early, you ensure an unprecedented level of building expertise is on your side from the start. 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. In addition to competitively pricing the project with subcontractors, we investigate value engineering opportunities and present ways of building efficiently without compromising quality or design intent. Our collaborative pre-construction process enables smart, informed decision making and allows for maximum quality and (we hope) fun.
Though we’ll conduct the orchestra, you’ll be an integral and informed part of the overall symphony. Our “Built to Last” philosophy means everything to us, which should mean something to you. During construction we manage and control all job site activities. We implement our quality control and bid qualification systems to ensure everything meets the design specifications and our high standards for quality, efficiency and safety. We use every one of our resources, both internal and external, to expertly complete your home and keep you informed along the way.
Vail Custom Builders understands that building a home means building a source of ownership and enjoyment into every project. It is our goal to take the worry out of caring for a home and to provide peace of mind in knowing that it will maintain its value for generations. In order to transfer the building process from home to lifestyle, VCB offers a host of post-construction services. From warranty work to general upkeep, special projects, remodels, restoration and repairs, VCB has got you covered. Heck, we might even reveal our secret powder stashes if you ask nicely?
"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."
