"The original interior window shutters in my 1936 Colonial were damaged in a fire. I had to replace them. I didn't like the shutters in box-stores because they are too thick to" look good or fit properly in old window frames. Also I did not want plantation style, which is not suitable for my house or region.
came out and measured each window carefully so that even 1/8th inch differences in size could be accounted for. I was surprised to learn how different each "identical" old window actually was. They let me pick paint color, shutter style, and even an aged brass look for the hardware. A few weeks later they came back and carefully installed the new shutters. They are gorgeous and fit the windows beautifully. The room looks much more classy now as well.

"First it was a bit difficult to get a time for them to look at the job (no problem).
came by, had a look, and after discussing the job with his boss offered" to do it for $450 (+ material cost for second railing post that we at first only wanted to have fixed rather than replaced). He came (on a Sunday), and I hung around to give him a hand and pick up a trick or two. It was clear right away that he would have to come back another day as the lumberyard where he wanted to buy the cedar post is closed on Sundays. He finished the corner board that day, I paid the $450 and received a handwritten receipt for labor and material. Then I didn't hear back for a while (they were still busy with a big job), meanwhile our porch wasn't safe to use as one side of railing was missing. Meanwhile I went to the lumberyard myself to get the railing post. After three weeks and repeated calls/text messages I received a call (at 10:30, being at work) whether they could come at noon the same day. I was a bit surprised but made sure I was home by noon. Unfortunately,
was late more than half an hour. He then installed the two railing posts in about 3.5 hours. Then I was surprised as he asked for $300 once done. Of that, $50 were for material (the only piece of wood that was used was a short piece of pressure treated 2x8 or so, and he had to rent a circular saw from Home Depot because his colleague had forgotten to leave him his, but should I pay for that?). At no time before was it mentioned that the original offer of $450 would have to be corrected. I said that I was surprised and was subsequently told that that was the price
's boss had suggested, but I could decide on how much I want to pay. Now what kind of business practice is that? This put me in an uncomfortable spot, and I agreed to pay $200 ($150 on top of material). I did not receive a receipt. I actually liked
a lot, and he did a good job, and based on that alone, I would hire them again. If there ever is a next time, I'd make sure we get a written offer, detailed written (i.e. on a computer) receipt, and that there are no surprises.

"This turned out to be a much more complicated job than expected: who would have guessed that there was a vent pipe in the wall just where the medicine cabinet had to go?
" coordinated work with the plumber who came to reroute the pipe, and did a great job not only in installing the cabinet but in piecing together the much-mutilated wallboard so that it looks like nothing happened. The only downside was that it took a while to schedule the work, because he is so busy. But it was worth the wait. It was a pleasure to work with
and we will certainly hire him again when something comes up.

Carpentry/woodworking

Finish carpenters can design, build and install woodwork structures in your house to enhance the quality and adorn the attractive appearance of your home. There carpenters can complete several different jobs for new homes or remodeling of an existing house.

Baseboards and molding

Baseboards and molding serve a practical function -- covering up the space where walls and floors join, as well as protecting the wall from scuffs and dents. But they also provide a decorating opportunity.

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.

This was a large upmarket residential renovation totaling well over $100,000. The general contractor,
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
did an excellent job. The project took approximately 4 months from start to finish. It was directly managed by company owner
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
. This man was extremely detail and quality oriented and his expert crew worked hard to meet his (and our) expectations to make sure every aspect of the project was done right. If, on the rare occasion it wasn't done right, it was done over. We provided most of the design and high-end finish materials on the interior, while
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
provided all of the labor and structural materials necessary. This arrangement worked well for both of us. Other than holidays and weekends the crew showed up virtually every workday for 4 months straight. Unbelievable! We are not new to home renovation and have seen the good, the bad and the ugly of the general contracting world. We were prepared to struggle with such a large renovation, but
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
came thru as one of the most professional operations I have ever observed. When the rare problem came up, it always came with a solution attached. Since we were living in the house with 3 noisy dogs during the entire project, consideration on everybody's part was essential. The crew almost always took adequate time out at the end of each work day to clean up the site understanding it was somebody's home. My experience has not always been good in this regard. Since time is money in the contracting world, the daily clean-up often gets the short shrift. Not with this company. The only part of the huge project not done by
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was the new heating system, otherwise he did everything necessary to take a very dated and worn 1972 colonial (needing EVERYTHING) and make its interior shine like 2014. We could have hired a less expensive contractor (be aware
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
is not the cheap seats), and some of the extras were a little more expensive than expected. But value is always the intersection of price and quality. In this case, we achieved the highest value we could have ever expected. Thank you Angie's List!!

The project became much costlier than we expected but that was due to

I highly recommend.

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,
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
, 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.

Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
is fantastic. He was on time, on schedule, and on budget. He checked in regularly, went above and beyond what was expected, and delivered a great finished project. His crew was polite, non invasive, and kept a very clean worksite. He worked on our house for 8 weeks total, with probably 5-10 days lost to rain. They would normally be at our house from 8am until 6pm or so, and then on Saturdays from 9-5, although there were definitely days where they were working until closer to 8pm to try and get something finished up. Most of the time it was just
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and 1 or 2 other guys, but a few times he had a larger crew on site (like during the actual painting). Progress came along steadily, and he was always in touch with updates. He is very friendly and chatty, and very easy to get along with. I really can't say enough good things about him and his work. We were actually sad to see him go. I would happily recommend him to friends or family.

I found out about
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
via a "Big Deal" via Angie's List. I contacted
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
shortly after getting the deal, and we discussed what I needed to get done. He's easy to work with and responds to your call/emails. He did a great job installing the baseboard, and fabricating custom pieces to trim out a window in my kitchen, even running out to pick up supplies when I bought the wrong size material. I highly recommend
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and would use him again.

It went very well overall.
Providence Carpenters Provider Name Locked
is a meticulous worker. He usually works by himself on smaller projects and wants to get it done right. The whole process took about 2 weeks. He offered his advice when I asked for it, compared notes on what I liked and wanted, and was able to find less expensive products of the same things I found in store--often of greater quality. It took a little bit longer than some contractors but he got it done right for a great price. He was honest and clear about his work and his charges were fantastic comparatively.

Herb was punctual and everything went smoothly, start to finish. We appreciated his attentiveness to detail. He walked us through the entire process and we are very happy with the results. We will not hesitate to contact Herb again.
