Our Values

Company values are a part of the Cabana culture to assist in maintaining an exceptional level of service, and ensure a positive environment for everyone involved in the company. These outline the expectations for our team and what we, as a company, endeavour to uphold.

These values are the essence of the company's Identity and summarize the reason for Cabana's existence. When we sat down & put pen to paper on what actually matters to us, this is what we came up with. This is the basis for jobs we take on, Employees we employ and Cabana's general day to day running.

We believe that a positive work environment is beneficial to our company in multiple ways and the most predominant way we uphold this is our people.

We expect every employee, employer, supplier, contractor, admin staff and everyone in-between to work as a team with mutual respect, Helping each other where we can and as Cabana grows - so will the team that helped it.

Our workmanship value is easy, because the foundation of this is already there. But that’s not to stop us from striving to improve the high quality of work we produce within every project. We take great pride in standing back at the end of a tricky build and admiring the time, effort and dedication that went into it.

This ties in with value for money. Clients don’t pay “extra” and its not a variation for these high standards. That’s just what we do

From compliance practices to customer preferences the environment we operate in is evolving. To keep up with, or better yet stay ahead of the times, we believe we need to stay open to and be proactive around innovation and carefully consider our impact on mother earth.

Cabana is about thinking differently and thinking sustainably. To do this we need to be able to challenge the norm, think outside the box, and have the courage to give new ideas a shot. We invite you to bring your own ideas to the table and ask that you allow others the same privilege.

This is something we continually push within our company. We are in constant communications with our team of suppliers, staff, and clients to ensure we are all on the same page to assist us in maintaining a high level of proficiency and quality.

Trust & Honesty
Cabana has immense trust between our team. This allows for jobs to be completed in a honest manner and means we get repeat work from clients who know us and trust us to do a fair and reasonable job.


"Awesome work done by Joel and Zane! Their communication was excellent and prompt. They came out to my house, took photos of the issue and gave me an approximate cost immediately. They sent through photos of the before and after with the final cost, and did an awesome job! Would highly recommend them as they were very punctual and professional. Would look to use them for any work in the future."

I expanded the job from the original request into several other jobs (wooden stairs, and wood panel ceilings) and they were all done with a high level of skill and craftsmanship. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Joel and Zane for other jobs."
