Main Line Craftsmen, Inc.

General Contracting



"We have used Main Line Craftsmen for two major projects and couldn’t have been happier with the results.  Their work was finished on time and on budget.   Not only that, Steve Shapiro made suggestions to the architects’ plans that improved the design and saved us money.  We just love the whole Main Line Craftsmen team." - Irene Rosen Marks
"I have done two large-scale renovation projects with Main Line Craftsmen. Their work is outstanding in every respect: their estimates are reliable, all their sub contractors are well supervised and they stand by their work over the long term. If I ever dared take on a third renovation, I would absolutely want to work with MLC." - Wendy Born
"Steve Shapiro and Main Line Craftsmen have done work on our home on several occasions over the past decade.  From small projects to major renovations, we keep coming back to MLC because of the integrity of the work, from beginning to end. For each project, we have worked with schedules, budgets, and people that have all exceeded expectations. When the occasional blip happens, Steve has always made himself available to quickly correct any situation.  The contractors he works with have all been top notch, not only in their craft, but in their approach to managing a project. Living in a home under construction is never fun, but Steve and his crew have always made it as painless as possible.  I would not hesitate to recommend working with MLC on any construction project." - Martha Ortiz
"We have worked with MLC three times over a ten year period on an addition, a kitchen renovation and most recently, a bathroom renovation.  We've been very pleased with both the end results and the process each time and wouldn't hesitate to hire MLC in the future." - Lise Reno
"I have had the pleasure of working with Main Line Craftsmen on several projects over the last ten years. When we purchased a new townhome in Center City Philadelphia, Steve Shapiro was recommended to handle the work in remodeling our kitchen and master bath and the patio entrance. The work of both his own employees and his subcontractors was excellent.  I sat for a whole day watching the folks tear down a single doorway to create a magical entrance to our garden. The workmanship was first class, the price was reasonable, and the work was completed within the projected time frame.

So…when we decided we needed a larger place, we turned first to MLC.  After taking his time to inspect several existing properties, Steve took us to a rehab which ultimately became our “dream home.” Building a place from scratch is not for the weak at heart.  At each and every step along the way, Steve gave us sound advice and wise guidance.  Once again, every part of the design was perfectly executed and within budget and completed on time. Every friend and relative who has come to visit raves about the living spaces, the light, the design—everything. I cannot recommend MLC highly enough." -
