My husband and I bought a house the required a full remodel that we were undertaking ourselves. We’re handy but have never done anything like this before. We did a lot of research using blogs and YouTube but were otherwise learning by doing. It is an old house and we came across many problems that we were not able to research solutions to. We hired Tom Steffes to do a walk-through of our house to help us brainstorm and problem solve many issues that came up. His decades of knowledge and experience were indispensable to the success of our remodel. Tom helped us determine solutions to leaks in our foundation, fixes to poorly executed prior home renovations, and countless other suggestions for our bathrooms, kitchen, and bedrooms reno’s that were currently in process. Since we were new to remodeling, he even went over the work that our siding contractors had been doing to point out some things to be aware of and notes to make when we hire any future contractors. Taking on such a major project has been stressful and oftentimes intimidating. Tom helped us feel like we were back in control of the project when the enormity of it all started spilling over. If I could, I’d be calling Tom on a weekly basis to ask for his advice on every decision we make. I’d hire him again in a heartbeat.
Steffes Construction remodeled our bathroom including a new surround and dry rot repair, then the usual drywall and finishing with new sink, etc. They did a great job and we were able to pretty much stay out of the way and it was done in a few weeks. One of the nice touches is how they matched the wall texture as it came met the next room. It’s on the other side of the door, but they took time to do that so it didn’t look different. It was great they asked a lot of questions in the beginning, at first we thought “too many questions,” then we understood why later – better planning is kinda like measure twice cut once.

Steffes Construction has done a few projects for us over the years. 2 Bathroom remodels, 1 master bedroom remodel, and a structural remodel changing our roofline and adding a peaked covering over our entryway. We were thrilled with each result and would highly recommend.
Tom Steffes and his crew are professional and perfectionists, which is what you hope for in a contractor. We would absolutely hire again.

The quality of the work is always exceptional and they have good attention to detail. Tom and Adam are also good at generating ideas to improve the project.

We hired Steffes design and build for the repair and remodel of our 1912 cottage. They rebuilt and shingled the sagging roof, updated the electric, added gas lines for the kitchen and fireplace, installed insulation and raised the ceilings in the kitchen/dinning room, remodeled kitchen, bath, dining, and living rooms. They always kept the place neat with work areas cordoned off so that we were able to live there while the work was going on. Tom was quick to notify us of any surprises found during the ongoing work (not unusual for an older home) so that we could be involved in the decision making for the solution. We have recently hired them again to replace a window, and have plans of hiring them for other projects. The work done was of the highest quality and we still get compliments, especially on the kitchen/dining room.
