"There were 2 guys that arrived sooner than their expected time, which was actually great. They were able to begin the work before I arrived home. Although, it" was very rainy outside the guys cleaned up all debris in the gutters and around the outside of the house. They provided a great deal of service.

"It was great. The only thing is my billing address was different than the service address. There was no call to confirm the location, they just went to the address" on Angie's list...which was different than the service address. Make sure to provide the exact address you are having the work done!

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.

I bought 8 hours for $250 and had two guys for 4 hours. I was a little concerned when I originally bought the deal because I was paying for hours and not the job. My fear was that there would be a lot of breaks and standing around. Well,they showed up, we looked at what needed to be done and they went to work. Both guys worked non-stop the entire ...More 4 hours that they were here. They had to go pick up a drill bit and stopped the clock while they were gone (20 minutes). I was very please with amount of work and the quality of work. I have no reservations about recommending them and I will be using them again in the future.

It went well with the handyman part. They were polite, punctual, and efficient. However, the pulley system did not actually work out in my particular garage. We realized this as soon as we tried it out. They were very gracious about it, took it down, and packaged it back up for me to return to the store. They patched all the holes in the ceiling.

I would definitely hire them again.

It took a few tries for Mr and I to get together, but we finally got it! He was here on time, didn't make a mess and cleaned up after himself. I had purchased an Angiesist Deal for 3 hours of work and he was here right at three hours.

The guys were extremely professional, came a few minutes earlier than scheduled, worked the full hour that I paid them for, fit in everything I needed done, and cleaned up afterwards. The price was great for the quality of work done. I'll definitely be using them again soon to install my new bathroom vanity when it comes in. Highly recommend!!

I have damaged wooden floors because of this contractor that will require additional fees. It took a couple of days to get the contractor to the location as they did not understand the location was within the CBD/Warehouse areas. Not prepared for wood work, no skills for such activities, resulting in additional damaged floors. Did not have proper ...More equipment, did not know how to remove existing slats of wood without damaging the areas around the repair work. Did not understand how to stain wood, I ended up staining the wood myself doing their work for them in the end which cost me several additional hours of my time. I kept the contractors longer and they agreed but still charged me for their time. Courteous individuals. Would not recommend this company for wood work, awful experience.
