Can anyone refer me, someone, to handle the potential structural issue in Elgin of some sagging beams? From my experience, I imagine some support beams can be installed next to existing 100-year-old beams but need someone qualified to determine that and/or complete the scope recommended. Anyone referred would be greatly appreciated.

Hey @Mark Ainley - shoot me a PM and I can give you contact info for my uncle who has worked on historic homes in Elgin for 40+ years.

I recommend Michael Grimson.
@Mark Ainley . Just sent you an email with a contact as well...
Give me a call and we can brainstorm the right path to take. I know a bunch of people here in Elgin.
@Mark Ainley and @Michael Seeker I am just starting the reno on a historic home in Elgin as well with balloon framing that we are going to have to address. Its a full gut and down the the studs at the moment but the Historical District sent me paperwork on the house and it was built in 1875. I will say its different then the houses I normally do but I'm always up for a challenge. If either if you forward me the contacts you have as well I would appreciate it.
