"We very rarely take the time to write reviews of goods and/or services, but we felt compelled to share our excellent experience with Steve Schroeder, owner/operator of SteveBuilt Inc.
We’d recently moved into our home and like most somewhat older homes, it needed some tweaking. The existing fireplace mantel in our family room was lacking in design and functionality. We contacted SteveBuilt and within a couple of days, we met and discussed in detail what we thought we wanted and the projected costs. Even though the project was not that large in scale, it involved a level of design complexity that two other contractors felt unable to manage.
Throughout the project, Steve was an excellent communicator always returning calls and texts in a timely manner. When it came to the work, Steve was always punctual. He protected all the areas around the room, hall and entry points before, after and during the entire project. Steve also took us to his supplier where we, in great length discussed the types of wood, how they age, different stain options, how the wood is harvested and planed. Steve also provided us with a true to size (length) of the wood we had chosen, with the stain colours so we could see the effect in the natural light in room. Steve’s attention to detail is above and beyond the scope of service provided by any contractors we have worked with in the past.
Steve exemplified reliability, superior workmanship and superior knowledge. He completed the work in a timely manner. The cost of the project was as he stated in the original quote with no surprises or add on’s. We can without reservation highly recommend him to anyone planning on a home renovation project. As a matter of fact, we plan on working with Steve again in the future on a couple of other projects. You won’t be disappointed!"

"We are pleased to share our experience working with SteveBuilt, who we engaged to manage a small but complex kitchen renovation.
Upon engaging Steve, the first thing we noticed arriving at the home we had purchased to find the hardwood floors, tile floors, and everything protected with taped down paper and hardboard. New appliances that had been delivered were similarly protected, and a binder was set up, setting out specifications for all trades.
One issue of complexity was venting a stove where we did not want to break through beautiful limestone walls. Steve’s ingenious solution to this involved the use of cameras and highly skilled trades he brought with him to the site.
Subsequent to the completion of our kitchen renovation, Steve has helped us in several other areas, and we hope he will be available to manage our bathroom renovations.
One final comment: Steve is highly personable, honest to a fault, and a joy to work with."

"Steve came highly recommended by his peers and he didn’t disappoint. He renovated our master bath and thanks to Steve and his knowledgable trades people, it not only was finished on time, he went above and beyond. Its just what we were looking for. Love the heated floors. Steve has good work ethics, very conscientious and we think a bit of a perfectionist 🤔. We would have no problem recommending SteveBuilt Inc."

"Bought a small 3-bedroom brick bungalow knowing it was a complete gut & needed major renovations. Hubby wanted an attached garage, triple concrete car driveway, and I wanted large covered concrete patio for entertaining. I envisioned an open concept home to retire in. I needed a highly skilled contractor /carpenter, Steve saw my vision too! He completed the entire project in record time, that's a dedicated reliable builder! I am so proud to show off my home! We are Very Happy in our newly built/renovated open concept retirement home! This High Caliber Contractor deserves a huge high five!"

"We live in a 65ish year old home in definite need of new door and window treatments. Our son noticed a school friend on Facebook who was in the business and recommended we contact him. What a terrific choice indeed, as Steve came the very next day! He took all the required measurements, reviewed different choices we could make and offered excellent advice in terms of saving, costs and the amount of detail the process would entail.
Steve's time frame for the arrival of the windows was on the dot and so was Steve! Throughout the whole project he kept us notified of all that was going to happen at all times. All areas were protected and absolute care was taken by Steve regarding safety, tidy-up and protection of our household! The craftmanship was absolutely amazing and all the window's and door's look fantastic!
Thank you Steve for such an impeccable job. It truly is a wonderful thing when you have a great, honest and very likable guy like Steve to perform any home renovation you plan to undertake! We would not hesitate to contact SteveBuilt for our next project and recommend you should too!"

"We just wanted to say what an outstanding and meticulous job Steve and his crew did installing our sliding glass doors. Having a few concerns of wood rot and window size left us with a few unanswered questions, but they met all the challenges and did a wonderful job meeting our standards of excellence. We are definitely calling them again when it is time to change our windows. SteveBuilt Inc. is definitely a company that we recommend without hesitation."

"We employed SteveBuilt Inc. to replace a lower deck at our home in Virgil, Ontario and scheduled the work to take place during the month of September 2018.
Steve and his partner arrived early in morning with all their material and equipment required for the job and completed the project by the end of the day. In order to install the new deck, they removed the existing deck and reinforced the supporting structure, to provide additional support for the new deck where required.
While completing the project Steve and his partner acted in a professional manner and worked around some of our existing structures and plants without disrupting our yard.
Once the job was completed to our complete satisfaction they cleaned up and removed all the old and new material from our yard.
I would certainly recommend Steve and should we need additional work done on our property will be sure to contact Steve."
Grant & Linda Brooks
"We hired SteveBuilt to repair our decks, fences, construct a gate and repair some steps. He also took away some brush and branches for us too.
Steve is expedient, resourceful, honest and clever. He never tried to
talk me into something I was not comfortable with and at the same
time listened to my priorities. Steve is a respectful gentleman.
I will definitely not hesitate to contact Steve in the future. A privilege to work with SteveBuilt Inc."
"We recently had our home office renovated by SteveBuilt. Our experience in this renovation with Steve was that he made it seem effortless and stressless. There was one small glitch which was quickly remedied and kept the project on schedule. His trades people were courteous and took pride in their work. With all this said we are enjoying our new space and would strongly recommend SteveBuilt for anyone's project."

"As an electrical contractor, working with Steve is a pleasure. He is always working with us instead of against us, and the quality of work put out is excellent. If you are looking for a contractor to take your project from “no” to “whoa” Steve is your man. Steve has also done multiple projects on my own home, and will continue to do so."

"Steve Schroeder and his crew did excellent work for me, which shows in the wonderful finished product. I am very pleased with everything, and proud to show off my newly floored, painted and revamped living space. He started when he promised and completed everything (including extras) well within the quoted time frame. I would highly recommend this contractor to everyone. He was very conscientious on keeping the rest of the house clean, and always left the work area spotless, which is a definite plus."
"Working with SteveBuilt is always a pleasure. His jobs are always well organized,clean, and on schedule. The worksite is always prepared when we arrive with finished floors covered and spotless so we can get right to work, and we don't have to waste time picking up and moving building materials to accomplish our work. Another reason we like working with Steve are his communication skills. He always keeps us up to date on progress,or if there are any unforeseen changes that arise. One of our favourite contractors to work with."

"Steve did an amazing job on the renovation of our boys bathroom. From start to finish, Steve was in constant communication with us about the status of the project. During the initial consultation phase, Steve offered his expertise and input. My wife and I expressed to Steve the vision we desired, and he put us in touch with the supplies he often used. Using his advice, we were able to select the appproiate materials that suited the conditions we sought. During the renovation, Steve's cleanliness was impeccable! Often I would come home from work and marvel on how well the surrounding areas were maintained. During the installation phases-his attention to details and craftsmanship was impeccable! At the conclusion of the project- the renovation- the bathroom was left in pristine condition (as well as the surrounding areas). I would highly recommend SteveBuilt for your next project. Every time I walk past the bathroom (even to this date) I smile at the quality of the craftsmanship. My boys really like using the bathroom!!!"

"Overall I ended up with one of the nicest laundry rooms that I have ever seen because of SteveBuilt Inc. Both rooms had to be totally gutted to cement walls. Steve did all the reframing and reinsulating and I rate his job as excellent 10/10. Some contactors I got estimates from weren't bringing in ticketed tradesmen they were doing the work themselves even if they weren't certified. Steve brought in top notch certified plumbers, electricians and painters. I would rate all of them as excellent 10/10. I was worried about Steve moving our washer and dryer upstairs during the reno, but was no problem and brought in his top notch appliance installer to reinstall and hook up the washer and dryer. Totally trust Steve and his sub workers in the house on their own."
Roger and Bernadette Ripa,
"SteveBuilt Inc. recently completed two bedrooms and a bathroom in the basement of our home, and we are pleased with the results; the work was finished on time and on budget. The tradespeople that work with Steve were pleasant and efficient as well. If you are contemplating a project in your home, but don't know who to call, we would suggest that you try Steve."
Beryl and Hugh Smith,
"I needed a small reno done with a limited budget. Steve was extremely patient and supportive, answering my many, many questions while figuring out the best approach to fill the need. The new shower and toilet are great. The finished product looks great! I am happy with the service provided."

"SteveBuilt Inc. was a referral from a family member who highly recommended them. They provided a quote and a reasonable time frame for completion of the project. They were clear in what was covered by them and what was expected of me. They came to my home and were very considerate of the fact they were in my home and made the process very easy. They gave me a time when they would come and approximately how long they would be. They were prompt and efficient and were done when they said they would. I had an old war time house which is not the most level and square house yet there work was fantastic and made my kitchen look fantastic. I have already recommended them to two other people and would do so to anyone that asked for a recommendation."
