"I own a series of apartments in the Danbury Area. I first met
in connection with the painting and finish work on an apartment building I" was completing. He gave me a competitive quote to do all interior painting and install kitchen cabinets and appliances. First, they showed up every day they were supposed to be there. They were on time and ready to work. Second, they did very good work. They were accommodating and made great suggestions with regard to modifications to the project in order to get the job done in an efficient and cost effective manner. I was so pleased by his work that I now use him to repair and renovate all my apartments. I own 35 units in the Danbury area so I have had a lot of experience with this company and I highly recommend them.

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.

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)

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.

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.
