The Urban Life Difference - Our Core Values

We bring backyard fun

Clients hire us to bring them backyard fun. It's our mission to relieve stress, not cause it. It's important we remain positive and upbeat with clients, even in difficult situations. We want to put people at ease.

We don’t leave problems half solved

We engage in problem solving. Talking about problems is fine, but it's not useful without driving towards solutions. Clients hire us to solve problems, not give up and leave a job half finished unless we have a clear plan of action to complete it. This means a "solutions over excuses" mentality.

We do valuable work and get paid for it

We provide valuable products and services. It's critical that clients know what to expect, they have agreed to pay that cost and they get enough communication throughout the process to justify paying that cost. We stand behind quality work.

We treat clients’ property as if it were our own

We can’t be careless, lazy or unsafe with other people’s property.  We treat our clients' property with respect and care as if it were our own.

We provide premium luxury

Everything we do, from the presentation in the showroom to placing a hot tub needs to show people that we take pride in quality and professional service. We put our best foot forward and show people we are the best at what we do.
