We had to clear the basement of all items and
Once the framing was complete, the electrician and plumber came in to do their initial portions of the work. We asked for 3 additional electrical outlets be added in the laundry room, which was planned in without issue.
During this period we started to work with
Once the framing,electrical,and plumbing was complete,
With this complete, the drywall work began. The team worked very efficiently and were done in less than a week. The tapers and mud team were also efficient and timely and it took just over another week to complete this work. We started the painting and completed 2 primer coats as well as 2 color coats in about 2 weeks with delays for summer trips and work interruptions.
With the painting complete, the next items were bathroom fixtures, which
Next came the installation of the carpet and tile. While cleaning up the floor in preparation for the upcoming installation, we had a heavy rain which resulted in a leak through the basement wall. Having already completed the painting, we had to try to seal the wall from the outside. We made the first attempt by digging out the area on the outside and finding the crack. We used a product from the local home repair. We thought we had it, but the rain the following day showed a slight leak yet.
The trim work as delivered next and we started the painting and prep work for installation. This took about another week, while the actual installation took only about 2 days. We did the final touch up after installation as we miscalculated the amount of colored versus white lengths.
The ceiling tile was delivered next along with the framing material. This portion also went very quickly despite having to work all the odd
The electricians came in and completed the electrical work including the phone line, antenna cable, and light fixtures. The electrician took care of all the light fixtures upstairs as well including installing a new light fixture on the exterior of the house for the basement entry.
We then completed the bathroom installation with fixtures and vanity. We had to call the plumber back into to move the water lines since the vanity we choose did not allow a straight connection of the water valves. This was accomplished in just over a day and the bathroom. The bathroom shower, sink and toilet installations went as expected. We sealed the shower tile ourselves.
We had a short period of limited activity trying to decide what to do with the closet shelves. We ultimately purchased and installed to closets worth of shelves.
The plumbing- he put in a new sink for us. We also had our sewage back up and he helped rotor it and cleaned it all up for us. And even gave me a few helpful tips on how to help prevent it from happening and on how to keep the smell out.
Drywall repair- our house is old, so some of the plaster has chipped. He helped by patching and painting it for us. He does it all!"
Jims installation team arrived on time on the scheduled installation day and went right to work. These two guys were a wonder to watch as they worked together and orchestrated the work in a manner that left little, if any, wasted time. They removed the existing doors and windows and installed the new doors and windows in a single day. That was great but the best part was that when they left, you could not tell that they had ever been there. And I mean it! We had had the inside of the house painted within the last few months and I had brought up stored paint to do touchups that I was sure would be necessary due to the removal of the old doors and windows. The paint cans were never opened and are back down in the basement.
I completely recommend Thermal Craft, Inc. and plan to use them again in the future to replace our remaining windows.
