"
is a fantastic carpenter and we've really appreciated his eye for detail and great communication skills. Over the last few months, he" has done wood wall paneling, trim work, gardening woodwork (planters, arbors, etc.) for us, and for all sorts of people over in the
Park neighborhood. He moved here from
, where he was a supervisor for an eco-friendly home builder, so he knows houses well; now, he is working on smaller, more custom projects. To top it all off, he is polite, respectful and friendly, and will tell you if he feels something is out of his comfort zone, so he is also very honest. You can't go wrong hiring him, in my opinion.

"It was a good-sized, complicated job with lots of details. One of our top priorities was working with a contractor who we liked and trusted. We chose to work with"
when he worked for a different company. We solicited about 7-8 bids for the job and
's was somewhere in the middle. One of the deciding factors, for sure, was
's personality and responsiveness. This is very important -- you want to work with to someone who is pleasant, trustworthy and someone who returns your calls without delay. My wife and I had just purchased the house and were learning as we went about the remodeling we wanted done.
was very patient and helped us save money where possible, without cutting corners on quality. He's very friendly and easy to work with, and was very responsive when we had questions or concerns. He's very knowledgeable about remodeling. The work was first rate. His subcontractors all did fine work, and they were pleasant. We were not living in the house at the time, but we regularly met with
to discuss the work. All the work ended up taking longer than we had hoped, but it was understandable -- we kept adding more small projects and, of course, they found some surprises that needed to be addressed once the walls were opened up. Overall, we were very happy with the work and were please to work with
, and have recommended him to numerous friends.

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.

He completed the work on our island perfectly. He replaced the spindles and post, but didn't finish the work as some paint needs to be removed and some poly needs to be sanded down on the handrail. The entryway was done and we are happy with the finished product. There are only minor critiques on the finish work, probably won't grade him an A, but a solid B. It took him quite some time to complete this work. After finishing the entryway he set to work on our custom bench, and we have not seen him since. He has been primarily unresponsive to text or email and at this point we will probably be taking him to court to reclaim funds. He never completed the custom bench or rebuilt the bookshelves (built-ins).
On balance, the sloppiness on the spindles/post and the decent job on the entryway work lead me to grade him at a C for the work completed.
I should note that his Facebook website over represents the work completed. In our case, he posted pictures of our island and exaggerated the work completed. Similar story with our staircase work. I think he has potential but clearly lacks sound business ethics.

I demolished my kitchen, living room and entry way to have all of these rooms rebuilt.

drywalled new ceiling, installed lights, and made drywall repairs in preparation for new cabinets, appliances, sink, faucet and countertops. Once all of that was installed, we began work on living room by tearing out old bookcases, and replacing drywall. New trim, handrails, book case shelves, and fireplace mantle were all manufactured by

and his team of subcontractors were very professional and usually on time. I thought they did a good job. But I just had a problem with my wine cooler, which they had installed, less than 2 years ago. I tried calling owner(

) and he would not return my phone call. I thought they did a good job until I needed to have Wine cooler serviced. We could not get wine cooler out from under counter. They just put in hole, the flooring under was 3/8 in lower than the tile in front of it. I left message for owner
Benton Harbor General Contractors Provider Name Locked
to call me, I had a problem, he never called me back. I guess it was take the money and run. The only way to get wine cooler out was to cut up a good fairly new( 2 years old) wine cooler. I am very disappointed. I had to purchase a new wine cooler and have a contractor do it right, this time. making the flooring even before installation. Because due to the levelers in back we could not get out from under cabinets with out ruining the wine cooler. So in the long run, they cost me over $1,000 to fix what they could have doen when they did the job for less than $25.

The quote they later provided me for dry rot wood repair was too high, which is fine. But the drywall around the roof access panel was damaged. The person who came to my place,

was very timely and completed the installation of the paneling on the bar area. He matched the stain so the new area would match the kitchen cabinets. It was a perfect job. He cleaned up after he had completed the work. Job well done.
