arrived on time and insured he understood exactly what I needed and didn't try and sell me more.
's quote" was equal to two other quotes but liked the fact that he lived just down the road. The work took around 5 hours spread over 3 days. The end result was great!

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)

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.

They did a great job and the quality of the workmanship is excellent. However, they do not call back. Communication was better when he was actively working, but now it is totally negative. He actually has my house key right now and some stain that is supposed to be applied yearly on the floor of the Portico. I have been asking for this since early November. In certain areas, there are knots showing through the paint. He was supposed to come back and fix this and the communication is still not effective. Since he is so unavailable, I just want my key and stain back, and the work on the knots that was promised to me.

He had a foreman that, he knew, was not in charge of things very well. He did not speak English and did not supervise the workers well. There was food garbage that animals got into. They did rectify the food issue once, but then it happened again. They used my towels from the laundry room without my permission. They did ask to use my sink, but they left it dirty. They also used my snow shovel and I did not find this out until I needed it to shovel snow.

Arranged an appointment and kept it. Was punctual. Explained what needed to be done and estimated the cost of materials to complete the work. Work was completed within the time frame and material costs were as estimated. Very satisfactory professionally completed job.

Horrific experience, the wrong materials were used, the work was not done well and they didn't even tile in the corner of the rooms but then reattached the baseboards! We had to have everything ripped up and redone by another company. They always had an excuse why it wasn't their fault or couldn't be done properly.

Work was completed in one day. He stayed as long as needed to get it done even during an impending snow storm. Very professional and work is extremely good quality. We look forward to using them again and would 100 percent recommend this company!

The company sent 2 techs to do the work. They were at my home before the sun came up and left after the sun went down. They worked hard all day every day. They were just phenominal. They were in the neighborhood a week or two later, and came by to check to make sure there were no leaks and everything was good.

stayed for the day (my $299). He assessed that the existing plastering and painting was even more of disaster than I'd thought, showed me why, and proceeded (with my approval) to scrape, repair and prep all four bathroom walls plus the ceiling. It was a beast of a project but he got it done in that first day.
Day Two and Three were add-ons at $400 per day. But it took that long to properly finish the work in the bathroom.
