History

Birmingham Home Remodeling Design Build Firm

President and Founder, Steve Ramaekers had been working in the home remodeling industry for 12 years before he founded MainStreet Design Build.

Throughout the 80’s and early 90’s, while working for a large home remodeling firm, Steve climbed the ranks from rough carpenter, finish carpenter to project manager. During this time, he recognized an opportunity in the local remodeling industry to pay closer attention to details, deliver higher quality and produce better customer service.

He envisioned treating customers with respect—working in collaboration with them to build out their living spaces and exceed their expectations. He envisioned upholding his promise to see home renovation projects through to completion; and building dreams that result in long-lasting friendships.

In 1991, Steve’s vision became a reality when MainStreet Design Build was formed in Birmingham, MI. The marketplace responded immediately to the new design build firm, leaving a lasting impression on Southeast Oakland County homeowners. People today associate MainStreet Design Build with trust and accountability, innovative, timeless design, superior craftsmanship, and people who are fun and easy to work with.

“It is this passion from which I started MainStreet Design Build that continues to ignite our desire to create a great place to work and a great place for our clients to visit.” —Steve Ramaekers, Founder & President
