Contractors say homeowners with this trait are the most satisfied with home improvement projects.
Putting the finishing touches on a remodeled room can be a challenge, but with a bit of practice and patience, your crown molding will look like a master carpenter put it up.
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.

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.

12/5/2014***Update*** It's been about 9 months since I got the work done and I must say it doesn't bother me as much as it used to in the past. ”
Mr. feel his charge was well earned and justified.
One of the company's owners came to do an estimate of the work, in advance of sending the workers. He indicated that it would likely take two workers all day to remove the window, do the restoration, then replace the window, and repaint all the new siding. Then he gave me what I took as a worst case scenario price, that I thought looked very fair for all that work, which I assumed would require scaffolding, etc. To have that maximum, worst case price gave me great comfort, and I really looked forward to the guys coming.
A few weeks passed, and with every rain, I started worrying again. With their half-off special, I figured they must have gotten fairly backed up. I finally called them again, and the office worker who answered indicated that they would be coming in the next couple of days. Then one morning,
I was thrilled. I figured the package I purchased for up to four hours for one worker would cover ALL the labor. We had enjoyed a BEST CASE scenario. I figured we'd need to pay for the materials of course, but that had been estimated to be around $100, so I thought we had really lucked out.
Then the price tag was presented.
It was not a pleasant conversation, though I was - on my end. It made me feel that the whole half-off deal was just nonsense. His "estimate" made sure that they would charge much more than even their "normal" rates. If the job had taken the two guys, the scaffold, and most of the day, I would have been very happy to pay even their normal prices - never mind the "deal" I had pre-paid. After a long unhappy conversation, I finally persuaded the owner to allow me, based on their supposed regular prices, to have me pay him for two hours of his own travel time to come to do the estimate, PLUS two hours travel AND actual work time for the worker, plus materials. Not such a great deal - based on what I had thought was the proposition. But it was worth it - given
I will gladly hire the company again - assuming
of the job-site which I provided via email. He never provided a
quote. If someone is not interested in a job, at the minimum, they
should be courteous enough to let you know that they are not interested.”
