go over and above to make sure that the job is done correctly. Their work exceeded expectations. They always" provided updates when the weather was interfering with scheduling. Will not hesitate to use this company in the future.

"After the job was done, about two months later I noticed water coming out of the floor in the bathroom when I stepped on the tile. The water leak also ruined the" molding between the tile bathroom floor and the wood laminate floor of the bedroom. I called our reliable handyman and he came out and diagnosed that the leak was being caused by the toilet, which had been installed wrong (a screw had been put in backward). He corrected the problem and prevented the water from spreading, but the damage to the molding and a few of the bathroom tiles was done, as they cracked from all the water damage. I called
to rectify the issue and he told me he stood by his guys' work and would do the repair work for free. Instead of coming out himself he gave the job to another one of his employees (
), who called me once and then didn't return my return calls or texts. After about 10 days with a ripped up floor, I called
and left him a message, saying I'd lost all confidence in his business and just wanted a refund on the Big Deal, to partially offset the cost of the repairs. He never called me back. About a week after that
texted to see what I needed. By then the work had been done by the reliable handyman.

crown molding
Carpentry - Unfinished

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.

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.

They did excellent work from day one to the finish. They worked tirelessly in all kinds of weather and were meticulous-sturdy framing, trim work, painting, electrical, down to final scuff

He was uncooperative and wanted to add on additional costs to purchase supplies in addition to the Big Deal pricing. He was very uncomplimentary about Angie’s List as a service, which I found extremely unprofessional. I did not end up having any work done by the provider.

showed up and took almost one hour to do the measurements. He looked very reluctant when I suggested 9 x 12 tiles on the floor. Also gave me the feeling of unease in his demeanor, as if he never had done a large project like that. When I did not receive an estimate on the 5th day, I gave the job to the other contractor that gave me an estimate within 24 hours.

replaced the 2 rotting columns with PVC board. He inspected the roof structure to make sure that there was no rotting wood and the tiles on the roof to ensure that there were no leaks or tiles that needed to be replaced. He also repainted the whole porch to match the color of the house. The workmanship as usual was excellent and the job was completed quickly and per the quote. I would highly recommend

was wonderful. He was able to install a loft railing that other contractors had either passed on or priced out of the ballpark. The railing was built by an artist and needed extra special care with the installation process.

was the right person for the job. He was courteous and professional and his workmanship was excellent.
We would highly recommend him to anyone who needs custom work done.

They showed up one time for an estimate to seal the garage and seal a piece of rotten wood by the garage area as well. They never contacted me back after the estimate to let me know when they could do the work. I never ended up having the deal honored. The technician seemed trustworthy while he was out. It did take a while to get in touch with them initially and scheduled out. They were pretty booked up. I am not sure I just was forgotten about and would like to know what happened.
