"It went very smoothly. Their work was quality. Generally everything was done right the first time. He never went ahead with anything without making sure he understood" what I wanted. On the few occasions when things weren't right, he fixed them. He was easy to reach, and always returned my calls. The end product was beautiful, and I've had no issues with the quality of the work. Later, when I had a rush job to make a repair required by the city, he pulled a permit and got the fix in right away,

"The guys at
were great. They were prompt, responsive, very neat and we enjoyed having them around. They were prompt in giving us an estimate" and advising us on how to improve on the project we had in mind. They were timely every day and paid a lot of attention to detail. We were very pleased with their work and professionalism.

Carpentry/woodworking

Finish carpenters can design, build and install woodwork structures in your house to enhance the quality and adorn the attractive appearance of your home. There carpenters can complete several different jobs for new homes or remodeling of an existing house.

Baseboards and moldings can add finishing touches to any room. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Alan R.)

Baseboards and molding

Baseboards and molding serve a practical function -- covering up the space where walls and floors join, as well as protecting the wall from scuffs and dents. But they also provide a decorating opportunity.

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.

I hired

to construct and install painted wood bookshelves in my kitchen.

did an extraordinary job. He was professional, attentive to detail and completed the job on time. The shelves are solidly constructed and fit perfectly into my remodeled kitchen. The paint job was spot on in both color and texture. I highly recommend

I ordered new Merrilat cabinets for my laundry room and a few additional cabinets for my kitchen. They were installed by a subcontractor through

. I worked primarily with

, but the rest of the staff was very responsive when

Austin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was a pleasure to work with. Even though my project was pretty modest, she gave me great service. I had previously visited other kitchen showrooms, but did not get great service when I explained that I simply wanted to make some modest adjustments to the kitchen and remodel the laundry room. I was also fortunate that Merrilat still makes the same cabinets that I had originally installed in my kitchen when my house was built, but
Austin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
did a great job helping me work through the right cabinet choices and thinking through the details so everything worked out. She also suggested reasonably priced additions to improve functionality of my existing cabinets. I didn't want this project to balloon out of control and she worked with me to keep it limited in scope and still meet my needs.
The contractor also did a good job. His initial estimate was way too high, but after he itemized the work, I was able to
Austin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
down the project to a more limited scope and more reasonable estimate. I was pleased with his installation work and his attention to detail. He asked a lot of questions and gave options to problem solve around the many challenges that surface in projects of this type.

Since the bookcase is a creative item we inherited with the house and is really meant to serve as a sliding door of sorts to our attic,
Austin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
had to trouble shoot and employ a little creative problem solving to create a safe and secure slide rail for our rolling bookcase.

was very prompt with his communication when I enquired about an estimate. He called back when promised and even came well out of his normal working area to help solve our issue.

is very personable and engaging - he took the time to show me what he was thinking by drawing me a picture of his proposed solution.
Austin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
came out the first time and created a temporary, more secure closing method so I would not have to drill a screw to keep the book case secure and stable. During that time we also discussed what would be the best permanent solution. He agreed to craft the part needed and return for installation. I expected to hear back in about a week. However, just two days later

called and told me he had made the part and could come out on Saturday morning of the same week to do the install. I was pleasantly surprised and am very happy with the results.

He was able to give us a written quote on the spot. We had bad weather on the day the work was scheduled.
Austin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
phoned ahead to say he would be an hour late. They showed up on time and the job was a little more extensive than originally planned but they got all the work completed on time and cleaned up before the left. Sag is now eliminated! He also did it on budget quoted.

His communication was prompt and courteous. He came out to see the project before creating an estimate, as was my preference given the task.



Initial framing, trim, and installation of the door were fine. As were the two smaller projects.



However, the finish work demonstrated carelessness:...More />
- He failed to use the template included with the doorknob to measure before cutting a knob opening in the one-of-a-kind solid wood door. So the turning mechanism couldn't fit. (I installed a ball latch, asked that the plug be replaced so that I can install a true dummy knob.)

- He did not sand the exposed
Austin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
of the 1/4" cedar plywood shelves. I would have balked at the choice of 1/4" shelves, but I can have those fixed later.

- He left a very noticeable scorch
Austin Carpenters Provider Name Locked
on the original top-nail oak hardwood floor inside the closet.

- Plaster demolition is certainly a messy affair, but the mess could have been contained by closing doors and using a plastic sheet. I spent a lot of time cleaning plaster and sawdust that spread through the house.



He acknowledged the mistake with the doorknob and did consult with a locksmith on remedies. I chose my remedy as the more elegant solution.



He is a nice guy, but never apologized for scorching the floor when I brought it up. I think that is just bad manners and unprofessional.



He adjusted the price down $100, ultimately.

They didn't pay for their materials and the roofing material supplier tried to place a
