"I really must say that I am not the type of person to write a review about someone but in this case I realize that there are not to many people out there that do" work like
and his crew so I just had to let everyone know about my experience. My wife and I just had another child and decided that we would need another bedroom for our son so we decided to look on Angies list to see if we were able to find someone to do the job. After looking around a bit we found
so I decided to give them a call and I spoke to the owner
I must say that I have a crazy work schedule so the time for me to have
come by and give me an estimate was going to be tough or so I thought
went well out of his way to accommodate my schedule and when he did arrive he was a very pleasant guy to speak with he seemed very knowledgeable about construction so I decided to let him give me an estimate on my closet, my sons bedroom ,my wife closet, my other bathroom , and my oak stair case well let me tell you that was such a great move
came in with a great price and said that he could start it two days and be finished in two weeks so I said to myself there is no way he could finish all this work in two weeks but I was willing to give him a shot and honestly I am glad that I did
came in with his guys and started work on Thursday and here it is and the job is completed exactly one weak later half the time that the told and as for the quality of work and the professionalism was superb I really must say that they went way above and beyond to make us happy in every way they kept the house spotless and they did a great job all the way around they did exactly what they told me at the price they gave me and they didn't ask me for 1 extra dollar at the end of the day we are extremely happy with the work that was done in our home and we would definitely recommend
to anyone and we want to say thanks to
and his crew

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)

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.

It went very well. Porch looked so much better after it was cleaned and painted. The guys cleaned up and left everything in order.

, the owner came over the day after I called him. He was courteous and reliable. He came over when he said he was going to. Once the work started he checked each evening to look at the work his employee had done.He was meticulous and careful to ensure we were happy and all work was done well. I did feel that the guy who did the compounding did not take care to cover floor appropriately on the first day. Thus much of the dust carried over into our other rooms. He did cover and clean up floor the next day though. I did look at some things I wish could have looked a little better. However I did not notice them until a few days later. I feel

would have willingly come back to repair them but I did not call him. I need more work done in a different part of the house and I am confident when I call him again, and I will, that any job his company does will be a job well done.

He does excellent work and he cleans up after the job is done. He is trustworthy and his prices are reasonable. I have used him for about 10 years for different needs and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

came by to look at a room that I was gutting and refinishing. He was very professional and informative and gave me some great ideas. He noticed some key structural issues that needed to be fixed first and recommended that I speak to the city to find out what is to code.

The salesman came out a couple of evenings to accomodate my work schedule. We asked for and checked out the references. The work started within a couple of days of signing of the contract. They powerwashed the deck for 3 hours on the first day. Couple of days later they came back to replace the cracked boards. It was followed up with sanding and painting (multiple coats) of the deck surface, the steps and railings. They did a bit more than what was stated in the contract without changing the price. The paint dried fairly fast. They came back the following day for a final inspection and collecting the final payment. The whole job was done in a week. They taped the side of the house during the work and left everything clean. Our ten year old deck looks like new.
This is a higher end professional unit. One of the few companies where phones are answered by a live person. Appointments are confirmed by e-mails and texts. Every contract is assigned a coordinator who calls and follows up. They offered a 10 year warranty for re-surfacing. But they are not cheap.

First and foremost,
Benton Harbor General Contractors Provider Name Locked
does excellent work. He is very detail oriented and meticulous and he is a true carpenter doing quality work. He was a one-man-show on my job, which I think may have been a downfall.
My overall rating of a B comes from the months of correspondence and work that took place on my house (January 2015-May 2015). We started with a $6,000 budget and a $1,000 contingency. After all was said and done, I paid out a total of $8,800. Of that original bid, only $1,200 was allotted for materials (which I didn't ask for the breakout until the job was almost done - make sure you ask for that up front, he charges $45-50+/hour and at one time said carpenters like to make $500-$1000 A DAY).
I have a large house in
Benton Harbor General Contractors Provider Name Locked
Hill, all wood siding and much of it was in terrible shape. I've not tackled a project of this size before but this is my third home so it's not new to me. I assumed that of the $6,000-$7,000 budget, at least 30-50% of that was going towards material as that seems to be the norm. After asking
Benton Harbor General Contractors Provider Name Locked
what the breakdown was, there was quite a bit of back and forth via email and some heated words that I felt were unnecessary from him (which is why I am giving a B in professionalism and responsiveness).
Each day he was there - which was over a 5 month period of time as the weather and other work (both on his part and mine) did not allow him to be in and out as he had thought - he would tell me that he's spent more money on materials than he planned and I always felt like he was trying to get me to pay him more money. It was a lot of repair that I couldn't see (inside the soffit so I had no way of knowing what had been done). Towards the end of the job, it was clear that he was not making money and therefore, the quality and amount of work suffered. The south side of my house, which needed the most repair, got the least and my painters have had to replace sills and trim work that my budget (and original scope) should have covered with

.
I contemplated using him to build the porch railing, but after the $1,000 quote (which he said, was a very reduced price because it's a 3 day job), I built it myself in one weekend for $350 in materials.
At the end of the job, we agreed to disagree. This was a large project and being a one-man-show, it did not go as we both had planned and expected. If you can afford his rates, he does do good work. I would not use him again for the size of job he did at my house though.
