"Work began in early summer. It started with the siding and progressed steadily. The workers were exceedingly prompt, neat, safety conscious and very courteous." Then the work on the cornice began with the same work ethic. The porch followed and again the workers showed pride in their work, kept us informed of any concerns and/or delays and were very accommodating to our traffic patterns. The porch looks absolutely beautiful with mahogany decking and banister trim. The interior work coincided with the porch work and involved rolling carpets. Each evening the carpets would be unrolled after a thorough vacuuming was done. Constant attention was made to disrupt normal household routines as little as possible. The general contractor,
, oversaw the job regularly, was available easily by phone, offered general and specific advice and made us feel the pride he took in this work. His suggestions were always helpful and right on target. It was a pleasure working with him.

"
Cook answered calls very quickly, was professional, and came for an estimate within a week's time that was good for us both--which is" great considering my difficult schedule. Their painting was impeccable, seriously some of the best work I've seen in a while. The job took roughly 2 days and I was very impressed. He is out to make a name for himself, so take advantage!

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.

The experience was good...although, we changed our minds several times, they were very patient with us. We were most pleased that

came over to gave an estimate, and we went over in detail what needed to be done. He handed me a written estimate and started work a few days later. His crew and he worked diligently for four days and left me a clean apartment that rented within four days of it being painted.

even went around doing detailed touch-ups to make sure everything looked perfect.

They showed up when they said they would; they reviewed the project and quoted a price for everything on the spot. When it was time to do the work, they showed up when they said they would; they did everything that had been discussed and agreed to; they cleaned up after the job was done. Considering some of the contractors we've met, this was a very refreshing experience.

Work took 5 months. It started in November and ended in April (mostly due to rainy/cold weather). Poor workmanship was not checked. Problems included unpainted molding installation, roof leak, poorly flashed chimney, poorly flashed misc areas, roof vent and soffit were wavy/not straight, hundreds of nails around house foundation, difficult communication, general sloppy appearance. To Cliff's credit, I provided photos to Cliff and the foreman on the job was fired. Cliff brought another crew in and repaired much of the problematic work for free. Despite his agreement to perform the work--the last of the work has never been completed (tenants stained ceiling, tenants unpainted trim.)

It took several months for
Providence General Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his ever-revolving crews of migrant workers to complete my very
Providence General Contractors Provider Name Locked
job, and it was done poorly. Among other things, they got white paint on a new dark carpet, installed a window sill that was an inch higher at one end than the other, and installed windows so poorly that they had to be reset. He would repeatedly no-show when I had taken off work to be home, or call and cancel at the last minute. Eventually, after I badgered him enough, they did fix the windowsill and reset one of the windows. However, he received payment from my condo association for other work which he never actually completed, and then stopped returning their phone calls; they are now pursuing legal action against him. Run, don't walk, away from this one.

I could not stress this any more: do not hire this man! A very nice guy but a complete inability to organize and manage a job. This was supposed to be done in three months. It started in February of 2006 and was supposed to be done in June of 2006. I fired him on April 30th of 2007 (14 months later). After receiving a stop work order from the

Building Department in March of 2006 I should have known that he was incompetent. Without going through the horrific details all I can say is save yourself the headache!

Generally we do all of our own remodeling, but in this case there were too many complexities involved with a kitchen remodel...and we didn't want to be without a kitchen for 4 months! Overall it went very well and we're thrilled with the work. We picked
Providence General Contractors Provider Name Locked
because we liked his design sense and he seemed to be a good communicator right from the start. His estimate was the highest of all those we got (5 in all), but we figured you get what you pay for. Mostly, we didn't want to get sucked in by a low-ball estimate so playing it this way seemed smart.
Providence General Contractors Provider Name Locked
did a fine job, considering our house is 100 years old! His subcontractors were all professionals, and in particular his assistant, Dmitri Tsimikas, paid very careful attention to the details, his workmanship was excellent, and he gave us loads of good advice. We were totally new to contractor estimates, so the only thing we would do differently next time is ask a whole lot more questions up front! Highly recommended.
