"Excellent. No issues but want him to finish work and do other things. He cleaned out my gutters but failed to notice that metal chimney cover had never been placed" over hole so cutting plastic to cover many holes and openings not authorized by electricians who did atrocious job and failed to do my electrical properly but took my money (will not pay anyone else again up front: they take the money and run while leaving
house a fire trap!). Just want
back to work!

"I purchased the 4 hours of wood rot restoration deal from Angie's List. After contacting service company, I got a response right away from the owner of the" company to discuss the work to be done. Since money is tight, I prioritized my repairs, and since Angie's List was offering a deal, I thought it was good to put out the money then for this one. But after that first phone call, it was downhill from there in terms of responsiveness. It took several more calls and e-mails before she came out to look at what the column needling repair. Then she sent the workers to do the work when I wasn't home ( without informing me) , which I did not like. I would have liked to review the work with them, and observe what they did. And I was not gone that day for 4 hours, so I know I didn't get 4 hours worth of work. They did not complete the job, but only replaced one section of the column wood rot, although I had sent pictures of two sections, and what they did is already coming apart about 3 weeks later. Additionally, I had my own exterior paint to repaint the wood, but since I wasn't here when they came, they did not use my paint, and it looks like they didn't even use an exterior paint. To add insult to injury, I now find I have to pay Angie's List additional money for conflict resolution, even though I purchased the deal through their site, and the payment went to Angie's List from my credit card- not the service provider - so basically, I have a conflict with Angie's List which I have to pay Angie's List to try to resolve. Come on!!!

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)
Remodeling - General, Carpentry - Unfinished

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.

New Orleans General Contractors Provider Name Locked
came by to give me a quote on replacing the wood around a window in my bathroom. He told me he couldn't give me any quote, because he wouldn't know about much work it would be until he opened up the window. Ok, I thought. That sounds reasonable. Then, he told me he couldn't schedule me in on a weekend for over three weeks. Ok, I thought. Thats fine. I'm busy. We will schedule for three weeks from now. He calls me the Friday before our scheduled time and asks to confirm for 9:00 the following morning. I said, "sounds great!" I waited around for two hours the next day. I received an apologetic phonecall asking if he could come at 12:00. I said fine. I waited another hour. No

Everything done with a superior level of craftsmanship. Anything he was uncertain of he made sure to call and double check.



Excellent job. He did such a good job and the house looks so good with the new blinds and curtains that we are calling him back to re-do the rest of the house...

Not good. I emailed him pictures of what I needed done. When he got there, i didn't have the supplies he needed because the project was much different then he thought.

Mr
New Orleans General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very friendly when I spoke to him twice on the phone--once to make an appointment for the quote and once to confirm that he would still be coming out/to make sure he had good directions because a lot of people have a hard time finding the property.
My husband met him at the house, thought he was charming and professional. I texted him my email addressafterwards so that we could get a quote for the work. I left two voice mails and texted two more times over the course of a week and a half but never received a quote. Hopefully this was not due to illness, but I am still disappointed that there was no follow through. We chose to go with another company that responded with a quote the same day we spoke to them.

,I had some obvious stucco problems, An AC compresser roof foundation problem and some other roofing repairs that were needed. Once the work was started they realized there was more that was needed then quoted. However they stuck to their estimates. They even found a way to reduce the cost with the AC because they did not need to Disconnect the compressor to rebuild the stand. They came in several hundred dollors below the origional estimate. I have found cheaper estimates but with
