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.

It was incredible! Our first meeting was over the telephone. There were a few ideas I wanted share about the overall look and size of the bed. A queen size bed made of colorful distressed wood with a large head board.

At our next meeting,
Salinas General Contractors Provider Name Locked
had renderings prepared from the few thoughts I shared over the phone. I was amazed at how he captured my imagination. It was perfect! We kept in touch throughout the construction.

When he delivered my bed, I could not wait for him to unwrap it from its packing blankets. It was breathtaking! There was such a precise attention to detail. Just dreamy!

I am grateful to have a one-of-a-kind bed. A piece of furniture that expresses my own unique style. Completely built to suit!

Thank you, REclUSE!!!!!!

Arrived promptly for quote; agreed on work and arrived at the agreed upon time with all materials and crew to do the work. Worked early until late and next day until all work was finished. All work completed, cleaned up and finished within proposed time frame (2 days). Excellent work, had to wait 2 weeks as his schedule was full. Was cordial, professional and his crew was too. No

Measuring and estimate was done very quickly. Installation was slow (several delays) and the job wasn't finished. I tried, several times, to contact them, but received garbled text messages (no phone call or email) in response. I finally gave up and finished the job myself.

The work that was done was exceptional. I had just purchased a new condo, and was doing some renovations. Due to some installations previously, the track lighting provided some challenges.

This is an honest contractor!!!!! He asked his plaster guy to do it and it was done perfectly, quickly, and low cost. This is a great find -- take it from someone who has previously not had good luck with contractors and ask this guy first!

I had arranged for a plumbing company to purchase and install a new toilet
in my upstairs bathroom (¼ bath) When they came to remove the old toilet and install the new toilet it was discovered that the floor and sub flooring was rotted and needed to be replaced.
From Angie’s List, I contacted

(

’s Son) who came out and looked at the floor. He explained the extent of the damage and what the work would entail. Although he did not usually work on weekends, he offered to start the week on Saturday, understanding how I needed to have the work done in order to get the toilet installed.

showed up promptly on Saturday, returned Sunday and Monday . These were three very hot and humid days, and the bathroom was small with just one tiny window which we kept open for a few days for at least some ventilation.

helped me pick out the best tile for the floor and spent time outdoors in the driveway in the heat in order to cut the tile to fit the floor He had to allow time for the materials to dry in order to complete the work.
