PROCEED WITH CAUTION! Steven Schroeder, from Builds By Steve, is a nice guy but this nice guy cannot do the job! His crew finished our attached garage-the drywall mudding/taping work was subpar. Along with hiring him to finish the garage, we contracted with w/him to build an outdoor kitchen as well. Throughout the process, he provided minimal (at best) oversight of his crew (the installation of the stone veneer on the outdoor kitchen was so terrible he had to redo it himself/extend the project), he provided us with what turned out to be terrible bids (and tried to keep up-charging us for work/items that should have been in the original bid, to include charging us for new materials he had to purchase due to the awful original veneer install), and the overall quality of the work was/is subpar! We continue to discover more issues with the projects we hired him for. We paid our deposit in early September and he said us he had to be done with the job by Thanksgiving 22, no problem. The job was finished on January 31 and 23! We are a retired military couple (41+ years of military service between us) and have collected numerous challenge coins over the years. We trusted Steve to create a custom live edge bar top for us with the coins inlaid in resin, he told us this work was his specialty. Somehow he is affiliated with Sasquatch Cookies and has done all of their woodwork as he sent us to their locations to check out what he is done on the live edge bars there. We liked the work so much that he won the bid, which included creating a unique, custom live edge bar using the IRREPLACEABLE challenge coins we have collected over our years of military service, our ribbon racks, and other memorabilia. He charged us +$3K JUST FOR THE BAR TOP. This custom bar is falling apart not more than 2 months after he finished it. The coins are falling out of the resin and our IRREPLACEABLE COINS ARE FALLING APART! Additionally, the bar is not smooth and flat. He wanted to keep charging us for resin saying that he did not expect to have to put multiple coats of resin on this CUSTOM bar top--we finally had to tell him he was done with this project as we could not afford to pay him anymore. Furthermore, he did not finish the underside of the bar whereas, the undersides of the bars at Sasquatch Cookies are all finished (False Advertising?!) There are resin drip marks all along one side and we have pointed/splintered pieces on our bar. This does not look like a quality piece. If this is his specialty he is an absolute failure or he is a fraud! For comparison, Stop by Sasquatch Cookies and you will see a flat, smooth, bar that is fully finished on all sides, with no drips, pointed edges, or cloudiness. Our bar is, sadly, none of these. Oh, there is more-he failed to seal the veneer on the outdoor kitchen, and his crew was very disrespectful of our time by being late or failing to show up when they said they would (which is probably why this project took 2 months longer than projected!), I caught his workers smoking/vaping on my property even after asking them not to, they did not clean up their mess daily and left safety hazards each night. His crew showed up on the FIRST day asking ME what to do. His crew would just up and leave the job without notifying anyone home at the time, leaving the property unsecured/gates/garages open. The frame for the countertop was so poorly built that it had to have multiple braces and shims placed before the granite installation. Thankfully, Tops In Stone installers were kind enough to fix his mess. Sadly, Steve was here the day Tops In Stone was here taking measurements for the granite template-he even discussed the issues with them yet he did NOTHING to correct them. Bottom Line: Do not hire this company! They will take your money and you will be left holding nothing but a $3000 piece of firewood if you are lucky.

Great to work with, quick service and made sure job was done right.

1.0 Sharon E. Manitou Springs, CO

The owner does not not follow up on his employees work and offers excuses for work not being properly done. He did offer to fix mistakes, but again had his crew do it and still did not follow up on the finished product. The work took much longer than promised, was not completed, his crew lacks experience and did very low quality construction. He has the knowledge and is very personable, but as an owner, he did not follow through on his employees finish work.

5.0 Mike H. Colorado Springs, CO

Diligent, professional and affordable. I would utilize them again.

Steve and his crew were great! My deck ended up better than I imagined. They were professional, thorough, and quick to complete. So glad I chose them!

5.0 David O. Colorado Springs, CO

Steve and his crew were phenomenal from start to finish! They showed up on time everyday and did a wonderful job with our patio concrete and pergola structural changes. 5-stars and I highly recommended to anyone wanting any type of work done to their home or business!

5.0 Vela W. Peyton, CO

Professional first meeting, estimate, and install. Professional clean up and walk through. Steve did exactly what we asked him to and his team of workers were all fantastic. Hard and heavy work on a very hot day. Highly recommend.

5.0 Darlene L. Peyton, CO

Just a nice guy who knows his stuff.

5.0 Stephen & angela N. Peyton, CO

Steve did an entire remodel of my basement, over 1500 sqft. We are so excited about the finished product, itâ s gorgeous! We already talked to him about 2 other potential projects in the future! Extremely responsive, up front with everything and he was willing to roll with a few modifications along the way with a smile and can do attitude! He even came back over a week later when I noticed a few minor touch ups that we missed in the initial walkthrough. Canâ t wait to hopefully work with them again!
