Client Comments

Steve's hours show in his work and he is an excellent craftsman in every sense.  Completed, repaired and leveled existing deck, reattached roof awning that had not been correctly installed by previous homeowner, sanded 20 exterior shutters, new deck surface and applied stain, ordered and installed custom kitchen cabinet door set, added deck roof support.  All was "right on the button."   Very consistent and dependable.  A God send.

Built a custom wall to open up the area under our stairs for a storage room.
We contacted Steve and Darcy thru Angie's List, and set up an appointment for them to look at the work. They arrived on time and were willing to take as much time as was necessary to talk over several options regarding accomplishing the job. They are both very personable and it was a pleasure meeting and spending a little time with them.
 Soon after we received and accepted their proposal and Steve was actually able to start a week early. He arrived on time both days, always pleasant and ready to get right to work. Of the dozens of contractors we've dealt with Steve is far and away the most conscientious about taking care of our home and cleaning up. I mean, Steve will clean up every little mess as he goes along instead of waiting until the end of the day. I have no doubt that the area where Steve worked was cleaner after he left. Even the driveway was spotless. In addition, I had no worries at all leaving Steve alone in the house.
  As for the wall itself, the word that comes to mind is amazing. Steve far exceeded our expectations. He is extremely meticulous about everything being perfect. We couldn't be happier with our experience. If you want a contractor that wants to do things right and takes some pride in their work, Steve is your man.

    The wooden header right above our big living room window leaked every time it rained. Steve stopped the leak, in the process devising and implementing a way to ensure it never occurs again, and repaired all the damage water had slowly caused over what we determined must've been years! He didn't just put things back the way they were either; he actually reconstructed the sill and surrounding areas better than they'd been originally.
     We called Steve's Woodworks and him and Darci paid us a visit later that week. Steve rightly assessed the (somewhat hidden) source of the leak on the outside of the house and shortly thereafter provided us with a time and cost estimate to complete the work (he was spot on, in both cases; actually, he came in a little under on the materials, which is always a plus!). We scheduled the work and Steve exceeded my expectations in every regard! He was pleasant to have at the house and gracious to my family. (The kids' school was closed one of the weekdays he was there and I was worried they'd be a distraction and in his way. He didn't seem to mind them at all and they agreed he was very "nice.") He fully explained everything he had done (as I was at work most of the time he was there) and even took care of a couple handyman-type things just 'cause he noticed them (he cleaned the gutter adjacent to the leaking window and hung a door). He truly went above and beyond; I'd hire him again in a second and also commend him to any of my friends or family members. My Angie's List membership just paid for itself by leading me to Steve's Woodworks! I can't imagine a better result!

I had several small projects that I need to get done.  Their customer service is wonderful, I was called to remind me that Steve was coming and at what time; when he arrived,  we reviewed what there was to do and he got started.  Steve did a great job and was very nice...even helped my neighbor change a tire!!!! (a real gentleman!)...a positive and stress free experience. I highly recommend him.

Steve made a custom TV stand and custom handrail for our basement stairs.  He also installed 2 cat doors and made custom shelving for a basement closet.  I would definitely use Steve again, he was very easy to work with and very polite/punctual. Did a great job of building the TV stand to match existing entertainment center cabinets. We also absolutely love the handrail he built for our stairs. He did an excellent job of coming up with a cool design without us having to give him every single detail. Final price was also in line with (and actually under) the original estimate. Highly recommend!

I worked very closely with Steve Depweg to build my stairs in my home that was going through a pretty extensive remodel.  When it came time to finish the stairs I looked at all the options in St Louis for experts in this area.  Steve came highly praised by past clients and I can see why.  He came in and was able to troubleshoot  the issues.  We planned out the stairs and custom ordered them together, I picked up the material on my own from a company I have used in the past (Builders Stair Supply in St. Louis), and had it ready here for his install. The quote he provided was right on, he finished all the work, and even came back to fix a scratch I found. If you are even considering any type of custom woodwork done in St. Louis, please at least talk to Steve before you have someone "cheaper" do it. I went down that path before I met Steve, now each and every person who walks in my house notices my stairs first, and asks "who do you built your stair!?"

He closed off one doorway in an old plaster wall home, opened up another in my kitchen and fixed a lot of molding issues. 
110% delighted with Steve and his work. He is a master craftsman who takes great pride in what he does. His estimate was accurate and he supplied every receipt for materials he purchased.
Before he left, I hired him back to install a closet for me.
Kind of hate leaving this review as this means he'll even be busier but fair is fair. You'll probably have to wait a little bit but I don't mind that. I can wait for reliable, reasonable and skilled.
Steve does great work at a fair price

  Had a walkout basement door and frame replaced. The job required some repair to the masonry surrounding the opening, some carpentry and some modifications to the new door and frame to fit the odd size of the opening. Cost included tear-out, install, all materials (incl. new door) and labor.
These folks were terrific to work with from phone calls/e-mails to the site visit for job estimate to the actual work. The job took two days and the work was thorough. I am completely happy with the finished work, the quality of the work  and with how well it went.  The worksite was clean and tidy after each day's work.  I could tell that Steve cares about doing it right and doing it well.
Kathryn - St.Louis, MO

Steve shored up some sagging cabinets, fixed water damage on a wall, added shoe trim to baseboards where there had been carpet and there was a gap between the baseboards and the hardwood floor, installed three ceiling fans, did some caulking, added a door in the basement, added a little half-door in the basement to cover up an open under-the-stairs-hole, and--best of all--updated a built-in bookcase that had seen its better days.
I cannot say enough good things about Steve!!! He and his wife Darci run their company like old-fashioned family run companies. Darci called immediately to set up an appointment for an estimate. They both came out and spent a lot of time going through the house and letting me know things that needed to be done--some of which I had not seen and some of which I thought I would just have to live with. The house is a rental and they worked with me through some issues with my landlord and were very supportive and professional. I cannot emphasize enough how much pride Steve takes in his work and doing it "right."Steve discovered a significant issue in the basement and recommended that I get specific help for it. I appreciate that he went the extra mile in uncovering the problem and then recommending that I get a specific type of professional to deal with the issue. I am so very glad that Steve and Darci made the move from Reno to St. Louis. He will always be my "go-to" guy whenever I need help!!Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Removed French doors to deck, replaced jam and re-installed doors, Replaced bad wood in bay window, Replaced garage entry door - re-framed to a standard size Secured hand rails for interior and deck stairs Several smaller handyman projects
This was a great experience, and we have rarely been able to say that about home improvement/repair projects.  Steve and his wife were a pleasure to deal with.  Steve came to determine the scope of work and provided a complete and accurate estimate very quickly.  Within a couple of days of accepting the estimate, we received a call from Darci  to give us a date when Steve would begin the job, and he arrived on schedule and prepared to work on our home until the work was completed.
Everything was completed in 3 days, which required Steve to work  long hours, but he saved us additional travel charges by doing so.  When he ran into a problem with the old siding on our garage breaking while he was cutting the new door opening, he came up with a creative and attractive solution.  He cleaned up each day, didn't throw his drink cups or cans in our yard, and doesn't smoke so there were no cigarette butts to pick up.  He went the extra mile by washing down his work area before leaving each day and putting construction debris into a trash container.
Consistently pleasant, professional, considerate and efficient, Steve is someone we recommend without hesitation and will use again.  We can't think of a single reason why we would not call Steve to bid on future projects.

Steve installed crown molding, base boards, and ac vents in 3 bedrooms and a hallway.
Steve is one of the best contractors I have ever hired!  He is punctual, nice to work with, meticulous, and priced very fair.  We love the work he did!  I felt like he wanted his work to be perfect, however, he worked quickly at the same time.  We will definitely hire him again and refer him to our friends.

Steve put a small deck above our front door entrance. He purchased the materials an installed the deck from start to finish. I was extremely impressed with the care and installation of the deck--there are no visible nails or screws, and the fit and edges are perfect, I was also very happy with the finishing of the flashing/molding against the house and the care he took to level the surface.
Steve and Darcy are a joy to deal with; they are responsive, excellent communicators, extremely punctual. Payment is also extremely easy as they accept checks or credit cards and will send receipts via email. I would definitely work with them again for any number of projects.

Steve repaired extensive water damage around a window and a toilet and patched a hole in our ceiling. He did very good work. While he was doing this work, he noticed several additional things which needed fixing, and repaired these at no charge to us.
Steve did a fantastic job. Not only did he do all the requested work for less than his quite reasonable initial quote, he also made several additional repairs to our house at no additional cost. He did very good work and seemed like a great guy. At the end of the project, he gave us very useful tips on ways we could do to fix up our house a bit. I would strongly recommend his work to others.
