"
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
. I received another phone call asking if he could come at 2:00. I said yes. I waited in my house another two hours. No
. He calls again - can he come at four? I said no. This is ridiculous. He says he will be there the next day at 9:00. Sunday morning, guess what? No
. He calls me at 11:00 claiming he overslept. He says he will be there in two hours. Guess what? No
. Then, around 12:00, I recieve a voicemail claiming her came to my house and no one was home. Bull. Ish. don't call
. Because there will be no

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)

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.

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...

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

understood that we had a time crunch; he and his crew went beyond expectations. Example: when the local Home Depot lost/sold all our ceiling fans,

the owner, returned the call immediately and set up an appointment. He came by at the time set and we discussed what and how we wanted the renovation of the patio to go and he input some ideas which we were grateful for then waited for an estimate. Our concern was not to change the integrity of the look of the patio but to bring the 50+ year patio to a fresher look . After a week not hearing from him,
New Orleans General Contractors Provider Name Locked
apologized that he had misplaced our information and promised to get back in a few days. After our missing an appointment accidently, he did meet his next appointment and we went with the bid. The bid was broken down by item cost very easily read. We did eliminate one electrical job.

required half down (mostly for the cost of the expensive lumber 4x4 cedar posts) and even with the added brick work only took the balance upon satisfaction, which we greatly gave.
Job started on time and work was done with visits from
New Orleans General Contractors Provider Name Locked
each day to check progress and quality of work. The job actually started without the brick work, only patches and a change to full tear down of the brick walls with the exception of 3 walls and are glad as it really improved the look and stability of each section.
New Orleans General Contractors Provider Name Locked
was able to reuse the bricks and supplied a few at their cost.
The men cleaned and picked up trash each night and stayed throughout the day until late at night to complete the time anticipated. Although some workers knew little english, there was always someone there you could question about the progress.
The only issue we had was the screen door that was ordered. Lowe's gave the contractor a false delivery date and with a back order delayed the door for two weeks. I personally called Lowe's to put more pressure into the delivery and hope to have Lowe's get the door sooner. As it turned out the door screen was damaged and the contractor did not have a good experience in Lowe's being responsible for the damage.

personally fixed the screen door and installed the door. When we realized the door would not come for a few weeks

I was extremely pleased with the job that
New Orleans General Contractors Provider Name Locked
did. The old door and window had not been used for many years and were in an area that had suffered a lot of termite damage in the past. The
New Orleans General Contractors Provider Name Locked
crew was able to remove all of the old termite damaged materials as well as the door and window. They reconstructed the wall and replaced and repaired the exterior siding in such a manner that the rather large patch in the outer wall is undetectable from the outside. The job actually turned out much better that I was expecting it could. The crew performing the work were professional in appearance and conduct. They did the work quickly and removed all of their materials and waste afterward. I would hire
