"Very Clean work site and Staff. Trustworthy, On Time, On Budget. Remained in daily contact and exceeded our expectations.

-JB C.

"I've used this company for many years. They have done quite a bit of work for me in the past. They are very courteous and professional. They always show up" on time and do excellent work. They work with my schedule and within my budget, and being a senior, I really appreciate that. The last job they've completed for me was a wooden deck. My old concrete porch was very small and was falling apart. I wanted something that I could replace it with and enjoy in the warm seasons. I am very satisfied with my new deck and most of all, CP Total's quality of work. I will continue to use them for my future projects.

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.

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.



Woodworking reviews in Fosters


From start to finish the project was seamless. The craftsmanship was superior. The crew was professional and on time. We contacted three contractors and decided to commissioned

for our project. The owner is retired military and your could tell by his attention to details and professionalism. During the project it was identified that my sprinkler system water line was under the area for the concrete patio. The contractor informed me of the issue and presented solutions to solve the problem. The project was finished in a timely manner. The guys did a great job of keeping my property clean during the entire project. I truly I got my money worth and more. The finish product looks great and the quality of work is exceptional. I would definitely recommend this company. My wife and I love our new outdoor space. Be sure to let this company know if you are retired military to receive your additional discount. I attached pictures to show the superior quality of work. I plan on using this contractor to install shade screen on my

were amazing to work with and did really high quality work. We served as the General Contractor for our own large remodeling project, and
Fosters Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was great to give us advice and suggestions along the way. They worked on our house from May 2014 - February 2015 and were always reliable, cleaned up their work at the end of each day, good communicators with issues or questions that arose, and did beautiful work. We'd recommend them to anyone and will hire them again for future projects.

was very helpful. He asked all the right questions about how I wanted the storage installed in the garage and helped me get the shelves in place to make sure everything worked as hoped. The drywall patching was well done and done very efficiently.
Was happy to learn that he is a master carpenter and that

did the repair on 2/26 and everything was fantastic. It probably took less than an hour and all he needed from me was some electricity for his equipment. His prices were extremely reasonable for the quality work he does. He was very accommodating to my schedule, which I really appreciated. He was timely, professional and came prepared. He has a ton of experience and really knows his stuff. I was very impressed with his work and would absolutely use him again and recommend him to anyone I know. Two thumbs up! If you need any type of wood work done,

I had a section of fence in serious need of repair.

with me. We agreed on a solution and he went to work. Midway through the project

changed the plan because he didn’t think the finished product would provide the strength required to hold up the fence or look very good. He was right, made some changes and finished the job. I’m very happy with the final product and so is my neighbor.

performed the work. I describe to him what I wanted done and he understood and was able to complete the job at a very high level of quality. The work is done in a quality way and very little is direction is needed to get the work done. He understands how to perform the prep work that is critical to making sure that the end result has a high degree of fit and finish.

performed the 'tear out' part of the work, designed the end result, purchased materials, and came to the job prepared.
The overall professionalism is excellent. Good appearance, well spoken, and comfortable working persona. He arrives with the appropriate tools and knows how to complete the job steps appropriately.

asks questions about how you want the finishing touches handled. Examples include where you want hinges or door pulls. He double-checked on the location of the opening from kitchen to living room to make sure he built it out the way I wanted it.


I needed more work performed than I realized and had to chose an exterminator to do the work.

. did email me within two days of purchasing the Big Deal to schedule the appointment.

.I am totally pleased at the work that was completed. I had a vision and he was able to guide us through the large renovation. The results were incredible. He was always here on time, and work extremely hard. We felt comfortable with him the entire time. We would recommend
