's work was terrific, from start to finish. He was punctual, and excellent on communications. There were no surprises whatsoever," except for the fact that the job went like clockwork, without a hitch. Very trustworthy, very nice person. We'll absolutely use him again and highly recommend

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.

arrived with Get-It-Done contracting on time.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
's portion of the estimate took a few days for my wife to pick from several cabinet styles, end caps and moldings as well as review the kitchen design. My wife was very impressed with
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
's approach because she was asked what she cooked, how she cooked, and then
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
recommended several options/installation features including a mobile island to accommodate my wife's mobility issues and size (short). Several contractors did not do this. We accepted
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
's recommendations in full. Work went as planned.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was professional, safe and prompt and well coordinated with Get-It-Done. The cabinets are high quality as promised and the options selected have proven to be spot on. We would not have been happy without them.. The molding and finish work Is awesome. The living room cabinets (built-ins) match the kitchen and frame a fireplace. Using the same cabinet design and countertop material for the living room was a great idea and saved costs plus made a great open space look! The kitchen is very functional. Mobile island is a boon. The kitchen and built-ins get positive comments by everyone who sees them. Bottom line: Professional and courteous, super price and value, great design, quality product, great look, superb workmanship completed on time. Our intent is to use

in the future and recommend
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
at every opportunity. living

provided a prompt estimate/design leading to their selection over several other contractors. Their estimate was not the cheapest(was close to lowest estimate) but my wife and I both agreed that
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
had the best idea of what we wanted, that their ideas were best suited to our vision. The contract clearly listed what they would accomplish and properly defined what we (owner) were responsible for (listed what products and actions were our responsibility). There were no cost surprises or unexpected plus ups. CI Cabinets, (reviewed separately) sealed the deal by asking my wife how she cooked and continued working with my wife to accommodate her mobility issues in kitchen/cabinet design. Work started on time, proceeded as promised with no delays until the job was done. Two problems, (tile layout for the fireplace, a phone line was not reconnected) were corrected with 24 hours) to our full satisfaction. Unique ideas included: - a Shelf over the TV to host the sound bar. Looks great-near invisible- great sound - mobile kitchen island that is level with the upper oven and rolls to serve as needed. Wife love it. - lighting in the kitchen and a room now provide bright, clear vision for old eyes. - Built-in cabinets in the living room match the kitchen that add to the open space look.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was great. Courteous, professional, safe, clean, and finished on time. Rework was near none existent. Home build in 1987 is modernized to better than new condition and looks awesome. The recommendation to upgrade initial flooring to solid core bamboo and the kitchen design have resulted in positive comments from everyone who has seen them. The quality of the work was super and we feel blessed with the overall job. The value for the dollar was super considering the scope of work performed and the final costs were well within reach.

The provider visited me to see what I needed done. I had a whole list of things. He told me I would have to buy all the materials. I said I wasn't sure what to buy and he told me. When he got here he said everything I got was wrong. I am used to the
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
getting the materials he needs and submitting the receipts.
He said we could reschedule as soon as he got here. We went ahead with the door, which took 2 hours to install with two men. He left the destroyed door frame in my yard, a pile of board with nails in them facing up. There were nails all over my garage. He was going to replace the hardware on some folding doors, but he said the doors were broken and I would have to buy new ones. I feel if he would have looked at them more closely on his initial visit,I could have bought the new doors and had them installed.
By this time I was out of patience and good humor and told him we should call it a day. He said okay and left.

I am the second owner referenced in a review below posted on 11/4/2014 and was the primary person in charge of the remodel. I would like to add my review.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
staff is very polite, professional, and conscientious. All employees displayed a great sense of humor and worked well as a cohesive team. Even my neighbors remarked how professional
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
’s crew was and as a result, several have
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
or consulted with him for additional work in their own homes. All permits are registered with City of Virginia Beach and all inspections performed have been passed.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
has great ideas and suggestions for almost every aspect of the house- which gives his customers lots of choices and varying price points from which to choose. For example, he recommended the hallway linen closet be demo-ed so that the associated space could be used for the new master bathroom and it made all the difference. Suggestions like that show he has the experience needed to offer his clients an array of choices to improve their projects that otherwise would not have been considered.
The company consistently goes the extra step. For example, I needed a permit for work outside of what
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was doing, and his assistant met me at the courthouse and walked me through the process even though
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
not doing that specific job. There were also some issues I experienced with my other contractor, outside of
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked

Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
very professionally relayed those to me so that I would be knowledgeable and able to intelligently address them. Even before starting on the house,
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
reached out to my neighbors to ensure they knew he would be working there which helped smooth the way for all the construction (i.e., noise, traffic, dumpsters). Another example of going the extra step: I bought two mirrors from Lowes and did not realize they were both chipped inside the packaging.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
took them back and exchanged them for two good ones.
He does not mind handling the little details to make sure everything comes together nicely.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
associates itself with great vendors i.e.,
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
’s Hardwood and Flooring,
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
(painter), Premier Plumbing, Mosiac Tile, and
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
from Pro-Build. All good people who offer top of the line craftsmanship. Where possible,
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
allowed me to work directly with his subcontractors which resulted in substantial cost savings.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
also came to the rescue when my painter bailed which caused major schedule issues during the last several weeks of
construction. As far as the overall schedule, there were delays from both sides- owner and contractor.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
did his best to catch up as well as deal with the significant delay my painter caused. Delays are expected in construction just like in any complex project,
and the ones I experienced did not have a major impact for me. In hindsight, I should have discussed the schedule
more to ensure we were on the same page- which is a responsibility of both parties.
The biggest challenge with my project was keeping track of all the change orders. As
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
made suggestions and
things evolved, there were many little details to track and changes made, albeit for the better. This did affect
the overall schedule, but worth it in the end as the house is amazing and I am very happy. The good news is that
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked

and his crew were very flexible and rolled with all the changes which only served me as the client in the end. However, I do think this is an area where The
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
Company can really improve and get more organized in order to help their clients keep track of changes and associated costs. More communication concerning cost estimates and schedule changes is the one area I
thought could have been better.
- Connie C.

The experience was excellent (the best we have had) the work was on time, on budget with done with great care and neatness.
We had been referred to
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
by a friend and he was as advertised.
We highly recommend
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and have asked him to bid on another project and are looking forward to working with him in the future.

he following review is written by one of the two property owners. As a Veteran, I used my VA Eligibility to help purchase this home with my wife. I thought it was important to write this review to inform both Angie’s List as well as the consumer.
We executed a contract for home renovations (new roof and removal of “load bearing” interior walls) on 3
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
2014. Below
is a summary of services that we initially contracted for:
1. Pulling required permits.
2. Remove all existing shingles, felt, vents and collars complete. Cut ridge 2" on each side of ridge. Patch holes for square
vents. Supply and install new felt, drip
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
, Certainteed Architect Shingles, Certainteed ridge cap, Certainteed ridge vent,
new collars complete. Haul away all material and debris.
3. Cover kitchen cabinets; remove walls to kitchen, front room complete. Remove ceilings in dining room, front hallway, and hallway to bed, front room, and kitchen complete. Remove ridge board and rafters in this area of construction. Supply and install new double ridge header in open room, new rafters to accommodate insulation and airspace. Supply and install new ½ "
OSB on roof sheathing. Frame up existing walls to meet new ceiling. Insulate and plaster.
All material is guaranteed to be as specified, and the above work to be performed in accordance with the drawings and/or specifications submitted, along with this proposal, for the above work and completed in a substantial workmanlike manner for the sum of $xx,xxx.xx
Key Concerns with the Contractor:
The first item on the executed contract (above) was to
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
the appropriate permits with the City of Virginia Beach however this was not done. The demolition of the “load bearing” walls were completed without a permit being registered with the city.
After numerous inquiries and a verbal quote by
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
“if it makes you feel better we’ll get the permit”. As such, the permit was finally registered with the city of Virginia Beach on
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
14th. It should be noted that the permit in question was not registered by
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
but registered by a completely different company known as
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
Shore Construction (Record 2014-BDRA-17220). As the owners, we were never informed about this switch and only found out when we conducted a permit
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
through the City of Virginia Beach database.
·Upon extensive research during the early
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
timeframe, it appeared that
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
did not have either a valid
contractor’s license or the appropriate contractor’s license to perform the work for which they were contracted thus the reason why they engaged another company to
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
said permit. Which raises a big question, did/does
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
Shore Construction have a contractual arrangement if so what is/was there agreement & relationship.
The overall cost weighed against the craftsmanship was marginal which causes me concern from a safety perspective.
We had an extensive (multi-page) punch-list whereby
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
had to call in another contractor to assist without both homeowner’s knowledge and consent. Specifically, a group of workers showed up at the house and did not even know who
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
was. Again, these types of scenarios introduce both professional and personal risk.
Concerns with Angie’s List
After speaking with an Angie’s List representative on November 4, 2014 regarding the license and permitting situation, it appears that Angie’s List verification process is based upon the contractor self-certification of their credentials (self-attestation). That’s
alarming. This introduces numerous professional and personal risk scenarios especially not knowing who has access to your home. I would have expected Angie’s List to run the appropriate background checks on companies and its employees that
are working inside a family residence that includes children.
Suggest potential buyers perform their own independent due diligence including a review of all the postings regarding this company as there are many similarities.

Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
did a terrific job on the remodel.
Background:The remodel was an almost complete gut of the master bathroom, to include removal of a wall, installation of a custom shower, two sink counter-top and in-floor heating. The bathroom originally had a bathtub and two sink counter, all original to the house and cheap quality. In addition, I required some drywall repair in the dining room ceiling to fix damage from a water leak.
I brought in several contractors (4 in total) to get estimates on the job. All of the estimates were very similar in terms of cost estimate. The decision to go with
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
. in addition to the positive reviews on this site, was based on the fact that the work estimate included getting all the proper permits and inspections required for the job. Although the plumbing and electrical rework was not major, I knew it would require proper permits. Surprisingly, other companies would not do that.
The work done on the bathroom was excellent.
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
and his subcontractors did outstanding work and were very responsive to my needs. I had family in town in the middle of the renovation, and they stopped work while they were here, and restarted after they left. The few minor issues which came up, which is inevitable in a renovation, were quickly taken care of. The quality of the work was outstanding. In particular, the tile guy did an amazing job. He was incredibly meticulous and had an amazing attention to the smallest detail. Also, the minor drywall repair to the ceiling in the dining room showed the same meticulousness. I cannot tell where the damage was, even though it is a textured ceiling.
The work done on the bathroom included removing the drywall, putting up DUROCK, using redgard waterproofing, installing a privacy wall and bench seat in the shower, putting DUROCK subfloor and self-leveling cement on the floor, in addition to the in-floor heating. They did drywall repair on the walls, as necessary, installed cabinets and granite countertops on the sink and installed a custom mirror.
In addition to the above, The owner's wife,
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
, provides consulting services for picking out the tiles, accessories, paint colors, etc, if you require that. I did, and she provided excellent advice and guidance on the choices for those items in the bathroom.
Overall, the renovation went very well, and I am extremely happy with the results. The bathroom looks beautiful and more importantly, I am confident the work behind the exterior was very well done.

We had a bathroom painted by
Virginia Beach Carpenters Provider Name Locked
- it is a fairly large bathroom and he did the baseboard/crown/walls (and some ceiling touch-up) in about 5 hours. He was very professional, didn't take lunch. He finished everything in 5 hours, would have taken me at least 3 times that. Clean lines. Planning to work with
