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 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 am a details person with high standards for myself as well as others. Considering this I met with
Defiance Carpenters Provider Name Locked
(
Defiance Carpenters Provider Name Locked
) at me home to discuss the project in detail. I clearly asked him not to take the job if the details were too much, or if this wasn't going to be what I envisioned for my $7,000.00 investment. He stated there would be no problems meeting my expectations and that they were clear up front.
Things progressed well in the beginning and the wainscoting job was remarkable. This is where
Defiance Carpenters Provider Name Locked
excels. Trim, Wainscoting Etc.
Defiance Carpenters Provider Name Locked
took several looks at the job beforehand and suggested that I keep and allow him to refinish the existing risers. I stated in writing "not at the cost of quality" sticking to his plan he chose not to replace the risers.
As the 1 week job was winding to a finish, I became concerned about the risers beat up appearance. The rst was looking fantastic, but this sore subject was back again! I wrote
Defiance Carpenters Provider Name Locked
an email that morning from work expressing my concern. At first he reacted as though he could not understand my concern. I was irritated and by the time the conversation ended he admitted that the risers did in fact not turn out as he had hoped. The casing was painted and the visible sign gs of the previous caulking/coats of paint are still there in the light for all to see as well! I said details!
I spend careful time communicating what I want and he communicated the cash that will cost me. I did not get what we agreed at all!
Three of the stair toppers are cupped. They do not sit flat and I didn't expect that would be final job material.
Defiance Carpenters Provider Name Locked
explained to me that he does not do Finished carpentry at this point! This shocked me! Especially given his company's name.
I paid him his money as contracted, and have not seen nor heard from him since. Despite emails communicating items needing attention. Clearly this is a done deal in his eyes.
I had my hardwood floor guys look into the stairs and landings. They said they were coated without being prepped, just wham bam. I paid them to sand and smooth the whole staircase and it turned out much better. 400 .00
I only want to give people like me an Honest review before they spend their hard earned money! Feel free to contact me as I am very passionate about this experience for additional details.

does great work where it specializes. Trim, wainscoting Etc. NOT staircases and floors! Beware of this level of a job!

We had four contractors come out and give us their ideas for the project, along with an estimate.
Defiance Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was very friendly and professional and we felt like he had the best ideas for the project. We also liked that

would be completing all of the work himself and using all real wood, no MDF. When we received all of the estimates

's was the most reasonable so we decided we definitely wanted to go with him.

Defiance Carpenters Provider Name Locked
came out to the house on January 22nd to take final measurements and get our deposit. He told us he should be able to complete the project by the end of February. He showed up to install the cabinets on February 25th and then came a second day on February 27th to rework the mantle and trim everything out. Now that he has finished we have a focal point in our room that we are very happy with and believe will add more value to our home than we spent on the project.

he came out to take final measurements at the end of January and told us he should be able to install the last week of February. True to his word, he installed the cabinets and shelves on February 25th, built the new mantle pieces in his shop on the 26th, and then came back to finish the install on the 27th. We are very happy with the project. It looks great and we feel that we got more than our money's worth.

I've used this company for many years. They have done quite a bit of work for me in the past. They are very courteous and professional. They always show up on time and do excellent work. They work with my schedule and within my budget, and being a senior, I really appreciate that. The last job they've completed for me was a wooden deck. My old concrete porch was very small and was falling apart. I wanted something that I could replace it with and enjoy in the warm seasons. I am very satisfied with my new deck and most of all, CP Total's quality of work. I will continue to use them for my future projects.
