Steve and Stevie Leifheit are a father and son duo that founded NorthStar Contracting Services in 2018. Working on home projects together is a Leifheit family tradition. This passion for building, creating, repairing, and restoring led Stevie to dream of a company that could continue this work, but on a much larger scale. NorthStar Contracting Services is this family dream realized.
As NorthStar launched, it was incredibly important to Stevie and Steve to provide a wide variety of services with unparalleled quality, service, and professionalism. Throughout each project, clear expectations are set, a culture of honest talk is established, and experienced team members complete high-quality work to accomplish the client’s goals. Down-to-earth and respectful, our company looks after each client. A “job well done” is our goal for every project.
