BIRMINGHAM, MI – March 1, 2006 – The National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) named MainStreet Restorations & Remodeling, Inc. 2006 Regional Contractor of the Year
(CotY) in two categories, “Residential Kitchen over $100,000” and “Residential Addition $100,000 – $250,000” in its annual awards competition.
“We are very honored to receive this distinction,” says Steven Ramaekers, President of MAINSTREET RESTORATIONS. “The award recognizes excellence and quality craftsmanship, and we are privileged to have won in two very competitive categories.”
Contractors from seven regions around the country vie for CotY Awards on an annual basis, and all regional winners will be eligible for National CotY Awards at NARI’s Evening of ExcellenceSM on March 18 at the Cathedral Hill Hotel in San Francisco. Most projects submitted for judging were an improvement or an addition to an existing structure, with the exception of one category, “Residential Exterior Specialty.” Otherwise, new construction projects were not eligible. In addition, competing projects were completed between July 1, 2004 and November 30, 2005 (a 17-month time period) and were not submitted in prior NARI National contests. Judging for regional awards took place at the Association’s national headquarters in Des Plaines, Illinois, in mid-January. An impartial panel of judges who are experts within the industry and associated fields, selected winners based on each entrant’s “before and after” photography and project description. Judging was based on problem solving, functionality, aesthetics, craftsmanship, innovation, degree of difficulty and entry presentation.
Trophies will be awarded at the 2006 Evening of ExcellenceSM in San Francisco on March 18, 2006, where National CotY Winners and Achievement Award Winners will also be announced and awarded.
This company is first-rate. Each member of the team is respectful, attentive, knowledgeable, and kind. The experience thus far has been enormously positive.
“I just wanted to let you know that even though summer is almost over we still get compliments on the work you did on our front porch. We are sitting on the porch now and we always have people walking by on their way to the beach…..we are constantly told how beautiful our house looks. Thank you for everything and please pass this along to Kyle and everyone else.”
Christopher provided the vision and helped execute the plan. He was so helpful guiding me in all selections and making sure we stuck to our plan. My kitchen refresh is everything and more. My kitchen now looks like it belongs in my home and really is a “wow” feature. I just love, love, love the way it came out!
My husband and I give our absolute highest recommendation for MainStreet Design Build! They’ve worked on many projects big and small for us over the past few years — from a total home office design/build to conquering a longstanding drainage issue outside the home. They’ve introduced us to stellar people in the industry — their handyman Marq, painters, plumbers, carpenters. Everybody is first class. MainStreet project manager Dwain is on my speed dial list as he’s helped us out so many times with projects or problems at our home. He is knowledgeable, dependable and just always has a great attitude. Will hope to have some photos of our beautiful MainStreet home office posted soon. Thanks Steve and Christine!
Main Street did our complete home remodel in 2020-2021. They were perfect professionals, and we never had any of the problems that we ran into with EVERY.OTHER.CONTRACTOR.IN.EXISTENCE. I cannot recommend them enough!
The design team was very helpful. The bathroom turned out beautiful in the end. Very courteous and professional staff. Very detail oriented. They have a team that has many excellent design ideas. The workmanship also was excellent.
“We hired Main Street Design Build for our laundry room and kitchen remodel. Like most people, we were nervous to take on such a large project, but after our first meeting with Steve, our nerves were put to rest. The entire staff exceeded our expectations at every stage of our project. The attention to detail, beautiful design options and finishes and level of communication that they offer is unique. It was an A+ experience from the office staff/designers/skilled trades and of course, our amazing project manager who made everything run smooth, on schedule, and on budget. We now have a beautiful kitchen and laundry room that we love to show off – and everyone who has seen it is equally impressed (and a little jealous). We can’t wait for our next project.”
Main Street has been terrific throughout our project so far. We are pleased with the level of service we have received.
I was most satisfied with how MainStreet stepped up to the plate on several material defects and immediately replaced and/or fixed the issue with no questions asked.
Mainstreet is top notch!! They make your visions come to life and have such great ideas to help make it that much more!! The people at Mainstreet are the best!! I was very comfortable and trusted all who came into our home, some started to feel like friends/ family. When they finished our kitchen I actually missed seeing them!! Highly recommend Mainstreet!!
