"Very positive experience with Taurus. I admit, I was a little nervous with how an interior shutter would look - especially since the room had lots of beautiful" trim/crown moulding that I didn't want damaged/covered in installation. However, from the initial consultation to the follow-up visit and installation, they listened thoughtfully to my wishes and fully incorporated them into the final result. They did a great job of matching the shutter and track to the colors in my room - they were also very professional and efficient. An excellent business and if ever I opted for shutters in any of the other rooms, I would definitely choose them! It has been almost 3 years since had the shutters installed and they still work well. Price: Generally, I find the costs of purchasing and installing rolling shutters to be a bit high. With that in mind, however, Taurus was quite comparable and fare compared to others. And their work was top notch. No regrets.


"The guys were professional and pleasant. They arrived early in the morning and cleaned up after themselves. They sweep the floor after work and cleaned up. I" am very, very pleased! I would hire them again!!

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.




General Contracting reviews in Va. Beach


Va. Beach General Contractors Provider Name Locked
arrived on the day he said he would. He used tarps so as to not mar my new cedar deck. When he finished he cleaned up and removed all the debris, he swept and hosed down the deck. He is tidy when he works and his craft is really good. He is energetic and trustworthy. We leave the keys to the house with him with complete confidence and have never been disappointed.

worked with me on the scheduling. Very professional and thorough. The
Va. Beach General Contractors Provider Name Locked
who came out to do the work was punctual and also professional. He did a great job removing the old wood, installing new, then painting and caulking, and finally reinstalling the rain gutter that had come loose. All done within the 2 hour window of the Big Deal, so no other labor charges. Just some extra for materials.

was easy to contact, worked quickly and cleanly, and completed the job within a couple of weeks of us first contacting him. We thought so highly of the work he did on the outside of the house that we hired him for a small additional project on the inside. We will definitely keep him in mind for future projects.

Every aspect of the renovation went smoothly.
Va. Beach General Contractors Provider Name Locked
's work and work habits were professional. He did what he said he would do, adhered to his schedule and kept the disruption to our lives at a minimum. He is extremely attentive to every detail and will not consider any task complete unless it is perfect even if it means he spends more of his own time to get it right. Minor changes, unforeseen issues are handled without a fuss. He and his crew are clean and respectful that they are working in a home that a family is living in.
