Nos pusimos en contacto con Carl Hedberg de Perfection Deck & PDP Construcción (PD) to interview him as one of our trusted contractors and boy, did he have some jokes to tell. He bragged that he would be turning “16” this year, because people are allowed to invert their ages after a certain point. Carl and his crew service the Colorado Springs area and he has been licensed in El Paso County for 26 years! Perfection Deck & PDP Construction offer Terrazas y patios de Colorado Springs, Sótanos, ampliaciones y remodelaciones de cocinas y baños.. We wanted to know how a business like Carl’s remains successful after so many years and this is what transpired.

Colorado Springs Decking

RMFP: Entonces Carl, cuéntanos cómo empezaste en la industria de la construcción.

PD: Well, I’ve been in business since 1985 and have been licensed in El Paso County for 26 years. I started out only doing decks and then moved into other types of construction. Ten years into my career, I got into doing basements and free standing garages. I really wanted to build homes though- so about 15 years ago I got my C License to build custom homes and room additions. I stay busy during the Spring and Fall with deck builds and fill our schedule with custom homes and room additions during the winter. Much better than plowing snow.

RMFP: That’s amazing! So what specific services do you offer your clients currently?

PD: Demasiados servicios para contar. Terrazas y patios- Diseñador exclusivo de bancos de ángulo de inclinación y jardineras, pérgolas, toldos y cubiertas, barandas con recubrimiento en polvo y cercas (vinilo y madera). Adiciones de habitaciones y sótanos porches & fireplaces, molding, trim & finish work, interior & exterior doors, ​landscapes & garden, retaining walls, stamped & colored concrete. Kitchen & bath- cabinets & counter tops, showers & tubs and grout & tile work. Just to name a few.

RMFP: Wow, you weren’t joking about offering a wide array of services! So how many employees do you have working for you to provide so many services?

PD: There are three employees including myself. I founded the company and my brother-in-law Mark King helps keep jobs rolling and is a huge asset to our company. Dave Schumate is also an integral part of Perfection Deck & PDP Construction. I’ve known Dave since 1985, where we met at Pikes Peak Community College when we studying to become architects.

RMFP: Suena como un gran grupo de chicos. ¿Cuál es su tiempo de respuesta promedio en un proyecto?

PD: puede esperar aproximadamente 2-3 semanas para un proyecto de cubierta y en cualquier lugar alrededor de 6 semanas para un proyecto de sótano. Por supuesto, hay proyectos más pequeños que toman menos tiempo, solo depende del alcance del trabajo.

RMFP: ¿Con qué tipo de clientes trabajas normalmente?

PD: Nuestro negocio en 99% residencial. Tenemos algunos clientes que también poseen propiedades comerciales, pero en general nos atenemos a proyectos residenciales.

RMFP: ¿Qué diría que hace que su negocio sea único y brinda una experiencia positiva para sus clientes?

PD: Our sense of humor towards life sets us apart. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, because you just have to laugh at life sometimes. We do the best job we possibly can and we treat people with respect. We are honest and run our business with integrity. We hate seeing people in our community being scammed by other contractors and oftentimes, we go in after those contractors to clean up their mess. I’m also proud that we have maintained an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau as an unaccredited member.

RMFP: What are you excited about right now that’s happening in your industry?

PD: I’m really excited about the new decking line released by Fortress Decking. 2018 is going to be the year where we really see an increase in the use of light gate steel framing. A lot of people are coming up on 20 years of having their decks and are disappointed that it hasn’t lasted the way they hoped it would. We see that a lot of people are using treated pine products on their projects and it not holding up against the elements in Colorado. We’ve been buying materials from Productos Forestales de las Montañas Rocosas Desde hace años 16 y estamos entusiasmados con las nuevas líneas de cubiertas compuestas que están saliendo a través de ustedes.

PD: Queremos continuar tratando a las personas con respeto y brindándoles un gran producto que durará para siempre. Actualmente hacemos cerca de cubiertas 10-12 por año y nos encantaría ver ese aumento en el número. ¡Nos encantaría duplicar nuestro negocio, como todos!
