"I contacted the provider because I needed my roof replaced. Provider was responsive and arrived at my home the next day. Provider explained the procedures for" replacing my roof, answered all my questions and showed me pictures of the damage. I was given a homeowner preparation sheet which I greatly appreciated. Provider arrived on time to start the job the day we agreed. The staff was friendly and courtesy. Provider made sure my yard was clean and all the debris was removed before they left. It was a great experience from the start to the finish. I have already recommended the provider to several of my friends.

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.

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 State College


Very professionally completed. Our ideas were conveyed to
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and we received 3 bathroom vanities exactly, as requested. We appreciated the follow up questions from
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
during the construction process as he wanted to assure that we would be totally satisfied with the finished product. The vanities were delivered on-time and without any complications. Couple the installation of the vanities with our plumbing changes, as well as, granite countertop processing and installation, we were very pleased with

Custom Woodworks working around our tight schedule with the other suppliers.

State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
communicated very well in dealing with winter weather circumstances, and was very punctual on our scheduled days and times. His work was outstanding in quality and his attention to detail made for an overall great project outcome. He handled the fact that we have a very active household with teenagers and pets in constant movement without blinking an eye. I interviewed and then selected
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
based largely on the reviews he had received on Angie's List. I was not disappointed in the least. I would hire him again in a heartbeat, in fact we have already discussed another upcoming project.

The project presented a challenge as the home was missing toilets, tubs, flooring and vanity. The provider developed a plan for the flooring and drywall install and proceeded to perform a quality job. The workers were all top notch, and were happy to explain things to us while performing the work. The workers also cleaned up at the end of each day which was a plus. We only hired them to perform the rough work and it was a great experience. We plan to use them again and would definitely recommend the company for future work.
- Louis W.

It was okay; they fixed the boards, but I'm not entirely happy with the work. He left two men who didn't speak English to do the work, and I couldn't communicate with them.
- Suzanne A.

The terms of the work that they were proposing to do was all in the contractors favor. I wanted to make some changes and they refused to do so. I ended up getting a refund through Angie’s List
- Jack K.

They were amazing. They came over right away and
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
up plans for our built in shelving. They sent a designer over to our house, great customer service. The whole process was very streamlined, not a whole lot of back and forth. I really liked the company, the project was just too expensive for us at this time.

was the first contractor that we called from Angie's List as we looked for someone to finish our basement, and we knew from our first meeting with him that we didn't need to talk to anyone else.
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
is extremely professional, very knowledgeable and extraordinarily trustworthy. Everything that he promised upfront he delivered on. He was on time, on budget and did exactly what he said he would when he said he would. Even when there were challenges posed during the permit process, he went above and beyond expectations working with the village. In addition, he always spent the time necessary to deliver what was promised, even when it meant several late nights. Ultimately, we ended up with a basement we truly love...
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
's translation of our vision into the final product was even better than we had hoped, from initial room design to the final coat of paint. The attention to detail was fantastic and he didn't stop work until everything was to our satisfaction...though I should note that typically our experience was that everything was done to our satisfaction upfront. We will absolutely be contacting
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
in the near future for additional work we have and we look forward to working with him again.
- Jason D.

An old, worn-out staircase had to be torn down for a separate project in the basement and we were looking to replace it with something a bit higher quality, as well as something more consistent with the look of the rest of of the house. (an older craftsman style)
We gave
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
a few images we had found of example staircases and after seeing the space he knew right away what we were looking for. After just a little bit of back and forth I felt very comfortable we were on the same page, aesthetically-speaking.
The build took a little over a week, with some of that being down-time as either glue needed to dry, or the doors for the storage space had to be custom sized to fit exactly the space as finished so they couldn't be started in parallel.
The workmanship is definitely very high quality. A few months on now with daily use and everything feels as solid as the day it was finished. Nothing loose, nothing wobbling, and not a single squeak.
Aesthetically, it matches the examples we had given
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
about as close as you could hope for, so we're really happy with the look as well.
A few more general comments:
1.) Compared to other contractors,
State College Carpenters Provider Name Locked
's price is high, but in the end I felt that the quality of workmanship was worth a bit of a premium. It's not a project I would have wanted to have to be re-done if it had been done poorly the first time.
2.) The lack of email or cell phone sometimes makes communication a game of phone tag, but I don't think I ever waited more than 24 hours for a response, either.
3.) To be clear, you're getting carpentry and nothing else. For example. if wood needs to be stained or other materials painted (or, even unused materials hauled away), that's going to be on you. Depending on the nature of the project, this can be a sizable amount of work in its right, so just something to keep in mind.
