"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!!

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)
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.

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 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.

I was pleased with the overall experience. The two guys were nice and addressed everything I asked for. One challenge that I had was estimating the package I needed on the big deal. Would the work take 2 men 2 hours, 3 hours - I didn''t really know. Also, I didn't know what materials I would need so I had to have them come over then run to Lowe's to purchase items. If I had been thinking, I would have had a relative come over to stay at the house so that they could tell me what was needed and I could run to Lowe's and let them keep working. That was my error. I think they actually both went to the store, though I thought one would stay behind to work. But they finished the work well within time so I don't think it mattered. But maybe I could have purchased less time on the front end if I had put this all together. Still, I was fine with the overall price for the amount of items they addressed.
The work performance was really good, close to an A but I'd like to see how things hold up. Also, a bronze colored latch would have been nice to match the other hardware, but I didn't specify. They were a really good duo. I'd like to call on them in the future, and I'd highly recommend them to anyone.

They work hard the whole time they are on the clock. They pay attention to detailed work. They clean up their worksite when they are done. I recommend them to anyone. I will definitely use them for future jobs.

was delayed over an hour, but he did call to let me know he would be late. Fortunately, it did not cause me any inconvenience as I was working from home. He worked for four hours and did an excellent job. Everything was as I expected. He did a great job. I also learned that he is an experienced carpenter, so I would definitely give him a call for any upcoming needs.

I have used them twice. Scheduling was a bit difficult, some mis-communications, etc. and did not arrive on time. However once here, they were professional and very conscientious. Very concerned with doing it right. He really worked hard to make sure that everything was done right and that I was satisfied.

Well Home Depot really messed up the special order of the aluminum fence. the fence was ordered in February and delivery was originally for March. Due to an error in ordering (HD fault) the fence had to be reordered pushing the delivery into April. throughout all of this, I kept in contact with Trever and he was very professional while waiting to complete the job. Once the fence and material was on site, Trever was able to meet my schedule and showed up very promptly and completed the job. In will use him again

There guys showed up so I had them for 45 minutes. I couldn't give them tasks fast enough before they were finished. They knocked out my whole list in 45 minutes and it was the best money I've spent.
