"When we purchased our home last January, the sellers were required to replace the roof, as part of the contract. Unfortunately, the job was poorly done, and after" 3 inspections, money in escrow was released to my husband and me to have the job done properly. I had reached out to
for one of the roof inspections, and found him to be very objective, direct and trustworthy. I requested a quote from him and another company. His quote was very thorough and reasonably priced for the size of our roof. We weren't quite ready for the roof to be installed, so we requested that they honor their quote for late summer. They contacted us in September and scheduled a date. The crew showed up on time, put down tarps and built barriers on the roof to limit debris from falling. The guys worked long days and communicated progress to us as they went along, including the fact that the prior ("new") roof had been leaking and there was plywood and rafter damage that needed to be replaced. They properly replaced what was needed and finished the job. They ran late on the last day, so they came back in the morning to make sure everything was complete and cleaned up. The roof looks beautiful and the entire crew was a pleasure to work with. I have and will continue to recommend this company. Sadly, it's rare when you find a company you trust in terms of quality and cost, but
has earned that trust with us. In fact, we requested a quote from them for some woodpecker damage on our house, and plan to have them do the repairs for that as well.

"We wanted a new house color and some exterior repairs done before winter set in. After getting several bids from other local vendors, we selected Classy Craftsman." They had the most comprehensive bid and they were willing to do the work before the cold set in. The house looks beautiful and we are getting many compliments from our neighbors. I've been very happy with the employees and the quality of the work. I have regular communication with the owner
. Looking forward to the completion of the project.

Putting the finishing touches on a remodeled room can be a challenge, but with a bit of practice and patience, your crown molding will look like a master carpenter put it up.

There are lots of occurrences that result in dry rot, though most have to do with proper water management in the home, says Lindus. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Donna B. of Portland, Oregon)

Dry rot is a phenomenon that can impact all varieties of wood. One highly rated provider answers questions about how to identify and eradicate dry rot.

Angie's Answers


You need a general contractor - prefereably one who specializes in additions, because you have excavation, waterproofing, concrete, concrete cutting, carpentry, door and window, etc trades to coordinate.

The cost will depend a great deal on your topography around the house - if the base of the window will be above ground level at least 6 inches, then could run about $500 for a legal egress window purchase and about $1000-2000 for installation, depending on how deep into the concrete you have to cut.

If the bottom of the window will be below ground level, then to call it a bedroom (which mandates legal sized second egress and usauully at least one window)  then you will have two choices - bring it out into a solid watertight concrete storm cellar with collar to keep water out, stairs, and and weather and bug-tight cellar door that is inward-opening, which means a lot of space for stairs and landings top and bottom, or bring it out into an oversized window well at least 36 inches in diameter, and with steps to ground level, with adequate drainage and waterproofing to keep it dry. Either way, sometimes about as easy to put in an outside door as a window, and might raise property value more. Cost from $2-5,000 depending on how deep into concrete wall you have to dig, whether concrete wsall needs reinforcing with steel frame because of the depth of cut, how easy the digging is, and what your water conditions are near the foundation. The last thing you want to do is create an easy water or vermin ingress with your egress.


Dictated by Federal LAW , you will need a Licensed and EPA Certified HVAC Contractor

to make such repairs . In fact , by law , ONLY A licenesed HVAC contractor can buy or install

said eguipment , NOT A handyman nor general contractor !


YES , You should have an A.C. sleeve surrounding the through the wall unit . These sleeves will usually accompany NEW products , either as a package or an add on equipment purchase.


Contact a Licenesed PROFFESSIONAL at once !


     It depends on what type of ramp you need. If it is built out of wood you could look for a carpenter or a deck company. If you are looking for a concrete ramp a mason would be what you are looking for. There are also metal ramps and I believe some medical supply companies may carry them or be able to steer you in the right direction. As for insurance coverage I am not sure. You may have coverage and would be best talking to your agent. Depending on why you need this ramp there may even be programs through your local government or even some of the local charities might help. It might be a project a local Scout Troop might help out on.

did a fantastic job for us. Reed was professional and timely, and their work was outstanding. They are particularly good at precise details.
Cincinnati General Contractors Provider Name Locked
did exactly what we wanted, and we will use them again for finish carpentry.
- Andrew R.

He was very prompt and did a very nice job with the work that he had to around our front door and around our roof, on our dormers in our roof. He replaced a lot of wood that was rotted. He cleaned up very nicely and was very courteous. The quality was very good and he was very professional in how he approached the job and us, quoting and everything.
- Art S.

It had been raining all day and it finally let up at about 1 pm. They showed up shortly after the rain had stopped with 11 guys and they went right to work. The materials had arrived from the distributor earlier in the day. My wife came home from work and she was worried because it looked like a bomb went off in the yard. When they were done everything was cleaned up and you couldn't even tell they were there. I spent the entire time on the roof with the crew observing their work. They didn't mind me being there and welcomed the questions that I had. They showed me the the age and water damage to the boards that needed to be replaced.
I had 4 estimates done and

was the least expensive. I felt like they were also the best suited for the job when the salesman who came to the house for the estimate asked to get in my attic so he could see the underside of my roof. No other company did that.
I couldn't be happier with the quality of work and materials. They did a great job! I recommended them to my daughter and son-in-law. They're going to use them to build a

on the back of their home. So, they do more than just roofing!

and his whole team are a pleasure to work with.
Cincinnati General Contractors Provider Name Locked
is full of ideas and has a great sense of humor - he'll try to sell you on his grand plans, but he's totally willing to work with whatever plan/budget you have in mind. His was one of 3-4 estimates we got, and he was right in the middle and most willing to work with us to reduce costs. He also provided multiple drawings and plans for the space at no cost (many contractors will charge you for that kind of consulting). We worked with at least 4-5 guys on his team (carpentry, plumbing, tiling, drywall/painting), and all of them were really great, easy, punctual, and trustworthy guys. The bathroom space is beautiful! It's a unique project because the room is rather small and has a sloped ceiling/wall on one side. The guys built a shower with a bench on the sloped side, installed a toilet and double sink, tiled the floor, created a window seat to cover the radiator, and built open-faced shelves in one niche. Their work included opening up the second floor WC to connect the plumbing, and even though they found some cracks and holes in the 110 year old pipes, they replaced them and retiled, drywalled, and painted that WC also at no extra charge. we've already had

come back to take a look at a couple other projects we have in mind, and we've given his name to many of our friends. I'd highly recommend him for almost any project you want to tackle.
- Jay T.

It took them just a day to do the work. The cleanup was great. I asked them to save the chimney bricks to match my older home's exterior. They did a great job to clean the mortar from the bricks and stacking them up in my garage. The yard was left in great shape too. One section of the apron blew off and I called them; they were out within two hours to put it back in place. They also let me pay off the work over a period of three months, which I really loved.
- Beth E.

We discovered additional dry rot after he replaced the initial pieces, so we scheduled him twice. On both occasions he arrived on time and performed the work within budget. He was obviously very aware of the considerations for timing as well as budget. Very conscientious.
- Foster W.

for 15 years. We have always found his crew to be highly skilled, professional and courteous, and respectful of our property and privacy. The work is done in a timely manner while still accommodating our daily schedules.
The crew always makes sure to take care of any finishing touches that we want done on each project. Also, during the time they are working at our house,

's fair estimates and his thorough, detailed planning for each project. Since we have hired

so many times, we obviously highly recommend this company.

Amazing. The work went both better and faster than I expected.
Cincinnati General Contractors Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job of working with the other contractors, or subcontractors, or whatever the
Cincinnati General Contractors Provider Name Locked
is, that were necessary to get the job done. They pulled all the permits and ensured final inspection. They kept us updated on progress almost daily. They worked weekends. They worked in the snow. They kept us on budget and gave us great finishing ideas that really pulled the project together for a great look but didn't make us go over budget. And the final cost, while steep as a whole, seems pretty in line with what I had researched. We had a price in mind before their estimate, and they met it but did not exceed it. Foundation work is just really expensive. As soon as we pay this bit of work off, we plan to have them back to redo out bathrooms.
