About Us

yamhill & Washington county

We are the local contractor for all your remodeling needs.

Here at Square Deal Construction, we’ve been helping families “scratch their itch” for over two decades. We focus on the “itches” that really get under your skin — an outdated kitchen, bathroom, or an underutilized outdoor living space. Terry and the rest of the Square Deal team thrive on new challenges and welcome any itch that may be just beyond your reach.

We are fully customer service-oriented and pride ourselves on quality craftsmanship and a job well done. Our satisfaction is derived from the smiles on our clients’ faces when they see their dream home come to life. We do all the leg work so customers can rest assured that everything from the permits to the finishing touches will be taken care of.

Meet the Team

Terry Hall

Founder + CEO

Terry Hall was born in a small Amish community in Ohio. Terry’s mother was a Sunday School teacher and homemaker while Terry’s father was a master drywaller. Terry was taught from a young age that honesty, hard work and commitment are necessary if one hopes to be successful in life.

Terry spent many days on job sites with his dad, first at a very young age getting in the way and causing mischief, later washing tools cleaning work areas and offering support to the craftsman as needed.

Eventually, Terry was taught the drywall trade. Terry learned that being trained by his father was tough as his dad’s expectations were high. He learned, sometimes not quickly, that there are no small unimportant jobs. Details are important.

The importance of character, hard work and honesty were the guiding principles in the Hall household. Terry brings this ethos to your job through Square Deal’s entire team.

Kent Puntenney

Accounting

Kent has an extensive accounting background and has been involved in the construction industry since college, which was a long time ago. Kent says he likes seeing things move from simple, raw materials to become beautiful pieces of excellent craftsmanship. Kent works closely with the sales team, production crew, subs, vendors, and various regulatory entities to confirm Square Deal operates above board. Kent is to Square Deal as wall framing is to a house. It’s unseen, but without it, the house will fall.
