"
who is the owner of this company did a fabulous job for me. He came to me as a recommendation from a neighbor. My deck had some serious issues with the stair" rails, fence, privacy wall, and general stability.
came out himself did all of the work in about 9 hours, and he did a great job. His price was very fair and did not change from the estimate that was given to me. Based on what I paid and what I got I feel that I received and excellent value for the work done.
is pretty honest, and very easy going as well. I am going to use his services for other jobs that I have around the house. I highly recommend his services.

"From the beginning to end I cannot say enough about
service and professionalism and the quality. The package I received thoroughly explaining the process, the" quote was detailed and work and quality choices explained is
terms, etc.
was always prompt, friendly and very helpful. I painted the garage myself and had an opportunity to really see the work close up and I found the quality of workmanship of the building was amazing (all the joints lined up perfectly). In my experience in remodeling when selecting a contractor the "mid price" person seems to be the best (that is what
price was). But more important is the professionalism and follow through that makes the experiences seamless.

Ballpark number - $30-50/SF for normal garage - in your area, considering need for perimeter foundation to get below frost depth, probably about $40/SF unfinished, $50 finished.

In your area, if you can afford it, I would talk to a Realtor friend (or the one who sold you the house) about how much value a garage would add, and the difference between one and two car - very few houses are built with one cars these days except on narrow city lots, so it might pay (if your budget can handle it) to make it a two-car while you are at it.

Also, a standard 1 car is about 12 x 20 feet - if you make it large enough for a full size pickup or SUV then about 12 x 24 or 12 x 26', which could improve resale value. The current trend is toward 8 to 8-1/2' ceilings and 7-1/2 to 8 foot high entry clearances also, rather than 7 to 7-1/2' ceiling and 6-1/2 foot beam clearance, to handle larger pickups and SUV's with racks.

Definitely - if you are interested, there are good videos on how it works on This Old House and Hometime websites, and probably on Youtube too, or google  -  "epoxy floor covering"

It takes A LOT of careful prep and you have limited working time to handle it (it is a 2-component product like epoxy glues and fibreglass resin, so has vdery limited working time after you mix the two components), so unless you are quite experienced with fast-setting finishes I would NOT recommend you do it yourself - get it wrong and it is MUCH harder to remove than to put on. Also, it is important to sprinkle the non-slip material over it at the right time without stepping in it or getting any on flooring that is not yet covered with the epoxy.

Find a specialty contractor for garage floor sealing - normal painters and contractors may or may not know how to do it. Rough cost estimate, WITHOUT moving a lot of stuff in and out of the garage, $1.25-3.00/SF depending on how expensive a finish you get. Keep in mind you will have to move everything out of the garage for a few days to a week, or pay them to come twice (which I have seen done) - to do it by halves about a week apart, with you moving workbenches, tool chests, etc from one end of the garage to the other before they come back.

There are a lot of off-brand products out there - a lot of them are garbage, and some claiming to be epoxy are not even 2-component, so not true epoxy. I would stay with national industrial brand names like PPG, Rustoleum, Armorchip, AkzoNobel, Dulux, ISF - the ones made by consumer paint companies like Behr, Sherwin Williams, etc seem to have a lot of bad press about them.

One thing to consider, is if your slab was coated with a water repellent or sealer, that will probably have to be sandblasted or ground off before an epoxy can adhere properly - for about $0.50-1.00/SF more.

If you are not up to spending $1000 or so on protecting a floor you drive on, you can get Rustoleum Epoxy Shield Concrete Floor Paint for about $40/gallon that, as long as you degrease and scrub the floor well before hand, sticks quite well including over a normal concrete sealer. While the rustoleum stuff is actually an acrylic, not a true epoxy, it does good for the $. The competing latex concrete paints peel and lift off in no time - they are fine for coating a basement floor to reduce moisture passage before putting down flooring, but do not hold up to garage traffic.

I redo the central driven-on half of mine for about $45 in degreaser and paint about every 10 years and while it does not look like a showroom floor after the first few weeks, it does the job of being easy to clean and repels most vehicle stains (except gasoline, paint solvents like laquer thinner or acetone, or automotive spray solvents like brake or carb cleaner, which will all soften and bubble it). It also is not anywhere as slippery as an epoxy finish. You do have to let it dry a full week to avoid peeling from tires sitting on it.

As a condo owner I presume you have checked with the condo manager - most condos have rules about types of finishes that can be used, and in some cases even colors.

That is a pretty old and small house to be putting much money into.

My recommendation would be to do no more than box in the carport as a garage, if you have use for that.

Adding a bathroom and laundry room to a garage generally means a new foundation for them, so significant cost for the small added space you are getting. Generally, one would recommend an addition rather than putting those in a garage. However, for this old a house an addition could be equal to the value of the house.

My recommendation - talk to the Realtor you bought it from, or a Realtor friend, about what certain improvements could do to the value of the house. I fear you will find that anything other than a teardown might not add to value at all, because any significant addition to that old a house, and that size if typical of the neighborhood, would make it an oddball house for the area and reduce rather than enchance saleability.

Instead of using Angie's List, I foolishly hired this "builder" based on the recommendation of the log home kit provider, "Mountain Creations" of Wexford, PA. By far, this was the single most horrible experience of my life. I am currently in litigation with this "buiIder" and am warning everyone I can to stay away from him. I cannot begin to explain to the world how worthless the guy is. From the beginning to the end this "builder" was deceptive. He would lie about the cost of performing work and then try and charge you for work that was included in the contract. Several different times he would ask me for an advance in his draws and once he would get the money he would disappear for weeks at a time.

and his "crew" of 1 to 2 guys would show up about 35% of the time. He took him almost a year to build part of my home which normally would take most builders 4 months. Because the construction took so long, I have had significant water damage to my home (mold, moisture staining, delamination of the sub-flooring). During construction, I have caught his workers sleeping in my home! His crew would leave their garbage all over the work site each day, there were several huge piles of garbage left all around the outside of my home site. Because of this, I now have a family of raccoons raiding through my unfinished house nightly. Currently my home is unfinished because he refused to complete the work that is clearly spelled out in the contract. I am now stuck with a home that I cannot afford to complete. This guy is very unprofessional, he cannot manage a project or his crew properly. I would highly recommend staying away from him and would gladly speak to anyone who is considering using this person to build anything for them. I have a ton of photos I can provide to back up what I am saying.

I called and spoke with
Bowmansville Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
. We set an appointment to discuss my options for my garage and for him to provide an estimate. After 30 minutes past our appointment with no call or show, I called.
Bowmansville Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
answered the phone and did not remember our appointment. After asking him if he was interested in the project, he hung up on me. If you are a contractor and depend on clients to support your business, I would assume you would be professional. I would recommend you keep looking for a garage contractor, because

is a poorly run business with no ethics.

The entire process with
Bowmansville Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
was painless, which is pretty hard to find, I have had a number of renovations done and its one giant headache, having the shed done fortunately was not. If it wasn't for

building the shed on-site I would not have been able to get a pre-made shed into my fenced in area.

The garage is nearly completed, expectation is within a week of writing this review and so far nothing has gone over budget and they have been great about a couple changes/additions we have made. Everyone has shown up when they said they would and the quality of work seems to be very good. So far, all promises have been kept and we are very happy.

We met with
Bowmansville Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
at
Bowmansville Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and he gave us a tour of the sheds
on their lot and worked with us to determine the size we would need, and
he even came out to our house to view the site where we wanted our
shed, walked us through more options and really worked with us to build
the perfect shed. He went above and beyond our expectations, matching
the siding/shutters/shingles of our house. He was very clear about what
was estimated and what was expected. When it came time for his crew to
build the shed, they were very pleasant, and offered solutions and
suggestions for door and window placement. They showed up on time and
did a great job. They were really all great to work with!

We are renovating a 20-year-old house and did not initially plan to replace the subfloors, but when it became obvious we needed to do that,
Bowmansville Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
and
Bowmansville Garage Builders Provider Name Locked
were flexible and made it their priority to get that done. While in the crawlspace they found a major beam that needed to be replaced and took care of that as well. They were also helpful in changing the deck design, which is much more open and modern now.
We plan to bring them back to help with some shelving and staircase work.
