Direct Steel and Construction is privileged to serve a multitude of clients in achieving their construction goals.

Since 2004, Direct Steel has worked tirelessly to ensure the best experiences for businesses and government agencies.

We take great pride in our work and are humbled by the many positive endorsements received over the years.

"I have done 3 major construction / remodeling projects in my 21 years of business and had less than stellar experiences. My current project with Direct Steel is going so smoothly that I have to pinch myself to remind myself this is real. Direct’s team has been a true advocate for me and my project. They’ve listened and learned what I really need, they have given great advice, brought great partners to the table and executed everything in a timely, cost conscious and professional manner. I highly recommend Direct and would not dream of doing another project with anyone else!"

~ Andrea Herrera, Amazing Edibles Gourmet Catering

"Direct Steel was a godsend on this project. Thank you sincerely for the help you provided me. I doubt whether we could have wrapped up the project successfully without your good work early on. I will be looking for future opportunities to partner with you again."

~ Rob McElroy

"While one may not initially think of construction as being a personal heartfelt experience, it is very personal when building a space you have dreamed of for years. To have your own plan become a reality, needs the attentive ear of the company doing the construction to not just build, but to create your masterpiece with their skill and work intertwined. The quality and confidence that working with Direct Steel… offered, is an invaluable resource when embarking on a project where success has such a personal value."

~ Drs. Preston and Liesl Kaye, Kaye Eyecare of Huntley, Ltd.

"I’m grateful to have the opportunity to work with a team like yours and watch you succeed."

~ Maud Borup, Inc.

"Faced with budget and time constraints, Cobblestone sought the services of Direct Steel. With the building design in hand and as an authorized VP distributor, Direct Steel, LLC worked closely with Varco Pruden Buildings to provide structural design, which was quoted, supplied, delivered in only four weeks, and erected in a timely manner. Direct Steel provided professional and knowledgeable service for our Sports City Academy. The staff’s attention to our needs and detail allowed our goals to be accomplished. I readily recommend Direct Steel’s services."

~ Jack Porter, Cobblestone

"We have been fortunate enough to do a number of post construction cleans for Direct Steel over the years. They have their projects well thought out and orchestrated. They give us great notice of when the job will be done, so we can schedule and do our job in a professional manner. They are not a “last minute-rush to get it done” company. They do quality work and they are one of the most professional companies we have worked for in our 28 years in business. Working with them makes us look good. They are great."
