"The basement looks amazing. It was done quickly and to our specifications. These guys are great. They are honest, quick and very neat. We had a budget and they" made suggestions according to our budget.They were able to use a mix of new and old (reused) materials. Excellent work. I've also used them to repair a door frame and other touch ups like hanging hooks etc.

"I feel it's very easy to talk with
and he's very responsive and offers fair, competitive pricing. I would recommend calling them" a month in advance as they're a busier business. The quality of their work is excellent and he makes sure everything is done at a very high level of quality and oversees the work.

Carpentry - Unfinished

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)
Remodeling - General, Carpentry - Unfinished

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.

being a licensed architect made things much easier knowing that we had to acquire drawings for the addition we were adding. After having many meetings with

, from Patriot homes, replied to my message right away. We had a home (in-laws) that we needed to sell. It needed a new roof and gutters. We wanted a good product but we didn't need to spend too much money.

understood that we wanted new buyers to be safe from roof repairs but we didn't feel the need to put more into it that we could get out of.

delivered samples and before we new it, a new (beautiful) roof was on the house. His team did a through job and cleaned the area of all debris. We thought that the price was very fair and the work was exceptional.

He was very nice, but difficult when it came to working with my insurance company. The insurance company that I am working with gave me a dollar amount and wanted me to stay within. He said he put in the invoice with the insurance company, but I contacted them and they said they never received an itemized receipt. The insurance company did not want to start work without that itemized receipt. Also charged for wood remediation (drying out of the wood) but it wouldn't be necessary because the wood is already dried out.

They were very much on a time line and they didn’t look like they had the high level of expertise that I would have liked. They left the project open-ended. They patched some things on some cedar but they just threw some stuff on that is used for fixing car dents. The work was very middle of the road and I was not thoroughly impressed with them.
