"This was hands down the best home improvement experience we have ever had.
is a highly skilled carpenter who takes the time to discuss with" you what it is you want and also gives you advice if you are uncertain of some of the details of your project. He worked within the time frame he gave me, in fact, finished earlier than I expected. My husband and I are completely happy with the finished cabinets/bookcases! He stayed in touch with us throughout to let us know how it was coming along, which greatly adds to your peace of mind.
is very professional. We could not have asked for a better experience or a more skilled carpenter.

"We had a lot of rotten wood. I was pleased with the speed and quality. It only took two days to tear down wall, replace wall, and paint the building.

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.

Angie's Answers


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.



Woodworking reviews in Rockford


I contacted them through their website and someone called me the same day.
Rockford Carpenters Provider Name Locked
came out the day after to do a quote and i went ahead and payed materials that same day.
The cabinets took a few weeks to arrive and a little while to be installed.
afterwards the granite came in and to be honest, i didn't think at first i would be happy, but for the price, i got an amazing kitchen!
They then sent someone out to do the backsplash. once it was completed i paid them the rest of the labor.
They didn't ignore me, and tried to fix my nitpicked spots.
overall i am quite satisfied.
- William H.

we've all heard the remodeling horror stories. Well, I'm here to tell you a success story.
Rockford Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and his carpenter
Rockford Carpenters Provider Name Locked
were the utmost in professionalism. From the tear out to completion they were a personification of their company name. It's the little things that often make the difference. When tearing out the old walls and floors,
Rockford Carpenters Provider Name Locked
discovered several
Rockford Carpenters Provider Name Locked
things that had not been done properly , if at all , in years past. He corrected those things with little or no additional cost to the project and made sure they were done right this time.
They made an effort to interrupt our life as little as possible. At the end of each work day, the area was cleaned up and tools were set aside out of the way if left at all. The non construction part of the house was sealed off so dust was kept at a minimum. Perhaps most importantly they kept to schedule even though little unforeseen things popped up as they always do.
My wife and I were more than pleased with the final results. We really feel like we are in a new home. I would not hesitate to use
Rockford Carpenters Provider Name Locked
in the future. We also do not hesitate in recommending them.
- Dick H.

He advised and I agreed that he would do both projects but wanted to start with the smaller job first. They did a really good job on replacing the garage door trim and window sill (but I was unable to open the window after the repair), however, he stated he was no longer going to be available to do my larger job. He stated he was going to be out of town for a relatives illness. I requested if he could do the rest of the work when he returned and he declined. I was disappointed that he couldn't or wouldn't finish my repairs that he initially agreed to. They also purchased an entire roll of trim when he could have just sold me part of what he already had. They also purchased the wrong color and so now I'm stuck with a $73.14 roll of trim that I'll never use and that's the wrong color. He did a beautiful job on the garage door trim and I was disappointed once I had seen his work and how good it was that he wasn't going to compete my projects.
- Izetta A.

He was a very sweet man. He did a very good job. He rebuilt the frame around my garage door. At the end of the day he did a great job and I enjoy driving up my driveway. I felt comfortable with him at my home. I also got another bid for another job that I might have him too.
- Rebecca H.

Can't say enough about
Rockford Carpenters Provider Name Locked
. We shopped around, and they were by far the nicest, most helpful, and best quality we saw. They had so many options to choose from, as well as some great custom pieces to their business. The price was also better than all the others, especially with the high quality. The installers were so nice, and very accommodating.
- Melisa A.

It was a complex job. We would certainly use them again. They job was completed in a couple of weeks. We had open disclosure on the price ahead of time so there wasn't any confusion. They were good with making accurate estimates.
- Stephen L.
