The main ridge of this 100 year old Pleasant Ridge, MI home was sagging about 3-4” from end to end. From the street view, it looked as though the roof was smiling, hence the construction term, the roof had a smile. While this was disconcerting to the homeowner, they were not sure how to fix this problem. Additionally, they were hoping to add a dormer onto the 3rd floor for a large home office. That is when they called MainStreet.
After a thorough inspection of the home, our design team got to work and put plans in place to add a completely new 32-foot 24-inch tall triple microlam beam into the top ridge of the home. Our construction crew shored up the original collar tie construction in the attic and then opened up the roof to accept the new beam. With the new beam in place, the roof is once again structurally sound and ready for the 3rd floor addition.

Just a note to commend you on a job well done. We now have our dream kitchen! Your crew was great to work with. They were professional, trustworthy and hard working.
Thank you to the entire team for making our home ‘fit’ us! From the first consultation, you understood this wasn’t about trying to make a small house huge. We needed it to suit our lives better, and that is what you gave us.
MainStreet was honest and upfront about the cost of our addition. There were no surprises – they did not low ball up front to add on at the end. The quality and professionalism of the entire team was outstanding. You truly get what you pay for with MainStreet.
We love our kitchen, and MainStreet made that happen! With the help of Steve, Christine and their talented staff, we were able to add a lot more creativity and attractiveness to the design of our kitchen.
Our experience was very positive, we found MainStreet to be very professional, and considerate of our ideas. The job finished very close to the time estimated, which can be rare in that business!
MainStreet’s quality of work was excellent and its employees were very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional.
We love where we live – but we needed to add more space for our growing family. We were impressed with Steve’s design suggestions for better use of space and enhancements to our plans. They really do focus on quality and integrity in every aspect of their work.
They did an excellent job of design. Some very creative design features. They did a great job.
We love our new Kitchen and Mudroom. We appreciate the effort, commitment and quality provided by the entire team at Main Street. Thank you! Kyle and Main Street Team were a pleasure to work with through the build process. The timeline including trades was on target. Co-Construct was an effective way to manage communication and any changes that were delivered throughout the project. The design and deliverables were as expected.
I can’t think of a way that they fell short. I was satisfied with the assistance that I received with regards to picking out the various pieces.
