Ted Strauss

President of Valleyrauss Homes

There is a secret to getting the attention of Ted Strauss: tell him you need help to build something, and he will always be there for you. He is a kind man who is grounded in family values.

Ted was born outside of Teeswater, Ontario, with two brothers and a sister. He was raised on a small family farm, where he learned the value of hard work and developed a strong moral code. Over forty years ago, after completing high school, he left the family farm in pursuit of his dream. It all started when he began as an apprentice with Tampa Hall as a carpenter. His experience within the framing industry lead him to follow his passion and start Valleyrauss Quality Homes.

As the Owner and President of Valleyrauss Quality Homes Ltd, he built his company as a result of determination, long hours, and hard work. He says, “When there is work to do, you have to be on site to ensure it is done correctly.” He believes that “people pay for a quality product and should get a quality product!” He loves that he has been blessed with a gift, the ability to build houses that his clients turn into homes. In fact, his favourite part about building is having his clients become like family.
