About Us- Cedar Valley Deck Company

About Our Company

At Team Builders, we're dedicated to providing the world's best construction experience to our clients specializing in decks for both new construction and home renovation.

This journey and mission started back in 2017 when founders Trevor Engels and Austin Maginnis flipped a house together and learned of each other's unique abilities. Trevor's unique ability is high attention to detail with a meticulous knack for construction perfection. Austin's unique ability is a contagiously big vision paired with a continuous push for creativity and innovation.

Team Builders has three unique aspects of our business that set us apart from the competition.

First, our culture and people are the backbone of our business. We value hard work, the willingness to learn, the desire to help others, and a drive to be the best at your profession. We hire team members who embody these qualities.

Second, we treat your home as if it were our own. We understand how important your home is to you, and we pride ourselves on taking the best care of your home with the love and respect we would want to be taken with our own.

Third, we make it right no matter what. We believe in standing behind our work, and if anything isn't right, we'll fix it until it meets our high standards. We know that construction is never perfect, and we are always quick to admit our mistakes. Rest assured that if something isn't right on your project, we will make it so - no matter what.

Core Values

Team Builders has six core values that guide everything we do, from how we treat each other and our clients to how we approach each project. They are:

Discipline - Discipline is the bridge between setting goals and accomplishing them. Our team sets construction production goals weekly and tracks our progress. We hit our targets consistently nine times out of ten.

Consistent & Persistent - Consistency is to do and act the same way over time. Persistence is to continue firmly in a course of action despite any setbacks. Construction is a grind, and there are always setbacks. Our team embraces these challenges and presses forward, no matter the challenge

Winning Attitude - Winning is a habit, and it starts with our attitude. Winners are willing to go longer, work harder, and give more than the competition. With our team, you will be hard-pressed to find a group with a better attitude and willingness to do whatever it takes to succeed.

Value Add - We share knowledge with others willingly and continuously seek opportunities to go above and beyond for anyone we come into contact with. We wouldn't have the amazing relationships and reputation we have today without consistently going the extra mile with our trade partners, vendors, and, most importantly, our customers

Creative & Innovative - Creativity is simply the thought process and generation of new ideas. Innovation is taking those new ideas and putting them into action to generate results. Our team is always down to try something new. We reward creativity and innovation within our team.

Systematized - Systematizing means arranging efficiently and effectively, or as we like to say, making the complex simple. Construction is intricate, but with our systems, we like to say we make it easy!

The first five values are about our people and our mindset for how our people operate. The last value is about the process. At Team Builders, we always say "People-Process-Product". We believe with the right people and the best process, the product takes care of itself. That has proven true over and over again within our company. It's why we say we are the best in the world because we have the best people and the best process. The high-quality product that results in upgrading your beautiful home essentially takes care of itself.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about us. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about our products and services, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Our Motto: Your Inspiration Lives Here. Inspiring you through the way we live, and the way we build where you live.

What does this mean?

The people in this world are most important. Without the people we wouldn't have the amazing world we have today. The people are our team members and they are our customers. Our passion is to inspire everybody through the way we live and the way we build where you live. Our team LOVES what they do and they inspire others to love what they do. Our team lives out this passion on site and in the office but more importantly they live out this passion beyond the workplace. In their own homes and in the local community. The impact of the passion we bring to life here at TEAM Builders spreads contagiously to the lives of our team member families, our TEAM Builder clients, and our TEAM Builders community.

Yes, we offer construction financing options to all of our fence clients through Sunlight Financial. You can decide to finance the entire project or just part of it.

We are proud to say that we use all in-house labor for our deck projects. This means that you will receive the same level of interest and attention to detail on the actual construction of your deck as you experience with the design and estimate.

Yes, the product manufacturer carries the warranty as long as the deck is registered online.

We are a platinum (top tier) level installer for both Timbertech/Azek products.

Absolutely! You can rest assured that if anything unpredicted does happen to your property due to an accident caused by us we are fully licensed and insured to cover it. This very rarely happens, but we are prepared if it does.

When you purchase a new deck from Team Builders we cover everything related to the construction process. This includes submitting a building design to the appropriate city or county departments for building permits prior to construction. If any building inspections are needed in your area we also organize those as required by code.

Absolutely! We will call in for the appropriate utilities to mark any underground public lines on and around the proposed project the week prior to showing up to build your deck.. A utility marker will come to your property and detect and mark the lines underground with spray paint and possibly marker flags. We then receive a notification from the utility marker that the property has been marked, which we double check before showing up for your project. This not only keeps your property safe, but protects our field team from potential injury.
