I would like to have a window installed in a basement wall. There is no window in place right now. The window needs to be regulation size so that the room can be used as a bedroom. This may require the removal of some concrete from the driveway beside the wall that the window will go in. I need the window supplied and finishing work for the interior/exterior walls as well. Oh, and to make things fun, I'd like to get the work done in the next two months, if at all possible :)
I would like to hire somebody to replace a bathroom door (the hinges seem to be falling out of the door (door is probably 30+ years old).The door seems to be a standard 80 x 28 (79 7/8 inches x 27 15/16 inches) and when you are inside the bathroom facing out, the door knob is on the right hand side and opens inwards (with the hinges on the left hand side of the door). I am looking to get a quote which would include labor and material.
I also have an old folding wooden closet door at the entrance way of the condo that needs to be replaced as the tracking is worn out. I don't have the dimensions at hand.
I want to replace two windows separated by a wall with one bay window. I want to break the project into two parts. The first part would be to build the foundation to support the bay window. I have read about a number of different support mechanisms for bay windows such as cables and L brackets, but I would like to have a ground-up solution. I have the physcial space from a building code perspective. I envision building the base below the bay window using two concrete pillars that begin four feet below the frost line and end near the location of the bottom of the bay window. Surrounding the pillars would be a half hexagon structure that represents the walls. Stucco would be applied to match the rest of the house. Insulation would naturally be added on the inside of the structure. On top of the half hexagon structure would be an insulated sub-floor on which the bay window would eventually sit. I would like to build part 1 without exposing the inside of the house. I would like to avoid costly joist extensions to support the bay window. I do not need to see or access the small space underneath the bay window like as if it were being used as a small garden.
In the early Spring, I would order a pre-fabricated, custom three-part bay window. When the window arrives later in the Spring/Summer, the two existing windows plus in-between wall would be removed; the old headers would be removed, and a newheader put in to hold the roof up. Next, the new bay window would be positioned, mounted and sealed. The final steps would be dealing with aethetics on the outside, and completing the floor and window trim on the inside where the new bay window juts out.
I do not want a bench running along the base of the bay window on the inside. I want to be able to put two chairs and a small, coffee table halfway into the bay window space.
I have a Calgary home that does not have a second door. I would like to change an existing window into a sliding patio door. My house is a bilevel home built in 1989. The existing window is 59" w x 48" h. The window is 37" above the floor. The area is my dining area and can be cleared out.
We're wanting to get 2 projects done. The first is getting our backyard/alley way door reconstructed, right now there are 2-doors that open outwards to the alley. We're wanting to make it a 1-piece, left-to-right sliding door.
The second one is to get our front-porch (approx 5'-L x 10'-W x 2'-H) remodeled, possibly with composite wood, cement/concrete pad or brick/stone.
I have an add-on on a mobile home (height of add-on is approx. 6 1/2 feet). I need a back door installed (window is currently in that space and I undestand that the door will not be standard height) and an elevated deck approximately 8' x 8' with railing and steps into the back yard from the new back door.
I live in a Townhouse Condominium Complex. I have two bedroom windows and one patio window. Last fall, I had the three windows re-caulked as they were drafty. The condo board is very very slow to make any repairs and have not done anything about the windows in over 2 years. My main concern is my son's bedroom window which is the worst of the three. I would like to get it fixed as the condo board has not done anything.
Late 40s early 50s block basement stucco upper walls,which are true 2x4 construction, raised bungalow with a side drive and easy access to all walls.Want the most energy efficient windows and doors available.Fire codes must be met relative to window sizes in bedrooms both up and down for future renting of basement which is currently suited but not to todays code.The two exterior doors are alarmed and must be refitted to accomodate existing alarm configuration.It will entail a combination of casement for some of the upstairs as well as picture style for three windows upstairs and simple sliders style for the downstairs which may only change for the two bedroom windows downstairs.There will be 7 windows up and 6 downstairs.
My name is Erin and I am looking to install a door in the entryway of my home (pictures attached) I have the door, but it needs to be trimmed about a quarter of an inch I believe. I am not sure what to get in terms of hinges and a door stop or jam so I will need help for this. Also I am hoping to have the wall repaired.
We are looking at replacing windows in our home. The house was built in 1977 and I believe we may still have the original windows & wooden panes. We are dealing with drafts, windows that don't open & close properly and the window in the master bedroom is barely holding on.
If possible we would like to get a free estimate so we can look into getting our windows replaced.
Installation of a man door into a wood frame/vinyl sided 3-yr old attached garage. This will require removal of the existing 6-panel steel man door from front entry door of the home to be reused as the garage man door. Installation of the new 4-panel, 2-lite, steel man door will replace the removed front entry door. The garage man door will require removal and reinstatement of the vinyl siding to match the existing siding, appropriate framing into the existing garage, cutting/demolition of a required portion of the garage curb wall to facilitate installation of the man door and concrete to make good the door opening and curb wall, and installation of the reused man door.
Approx. 20' long by 3' wide of poured concrete sidewalk along the side of the garage to the new man door addition.
Optional budget pricing to insulate the exterior walls of the attached 2-car 22'Wx18'L garage.
Optional budget pricing to drywall the above insulated areas of the garage. Mudding and taping are not necessary.
Comments and questions are appreciated.
I am moving to a new home where the door between the garage and house swings outward into the garage. The house I am currently in, has the door swinging inward into the house where I lower a door stop to keep it open which I feel is more practical. I want the door changed to swing inward.
Also, I need an outlet in a room where there is no outlet. On the other side of the wall there is a wall plug in that room. Can I add a plug in into the new room?
Move date is February 15. Painters come on the 17 so if possible I would need it done before the 17 or on the 17-18 before the painter gets to the back entry.
Thanks very much for your time.
We have purchased 5 "Safe N Sound" Interior Doors as well as appropriate hinges and door knobs. We require all 5 doors to be installed in existing door frames. Our home is a 40 year
old bi-level. (An on-line estimate would be appreciated, or contact us via email for viewing project site).
Thanks in advance,
Mike & Dianne
I just finished off my basement (newer House) but I have 3 window casing that I have not finished yet. All 3 window casing dimensions are Length 5 feet, Depth 11.75" max & Height 31" max. Cannot finish with MDF or drywall as those materials absorb too much water Note: I have not bought any supplies. I'm open to materials on a cost + basis or whatever you think makes the most sense.
I would like to have a set of French doors installed in my basement. I purchased a package with French doors, jambs, header, & hardware from Timber Town but decided it would be better to have a contractor install them.
Would you be interested in this job?

Some of our windows leak. We had people out to look at them last year and the year before but we haven't gotten a clear idea of what is wrong and what must be done to fix it.
If I spray the windows with a hose, they don't leak. However, if we get a hard rain blowing against one side of the house, they leak a lot. Someone suggested that something might need to be done in the roof of our house to prevent water from leaking down and coming through the windows.
First thing we need, is for someone who knows a lot about windows and house construction to come out, maybe do some diagnostic tests and figure out what the problem is. Then, we can decide what we are prepared to fix depending on the cost.
Just moved in to a 1400 sq ft 2 story semi-detached built in 1987. We are replacing the furnace which is allowing us to remove the chimney stack which runs up through the centre of the house which makes us want to remove the rest of that wall as well to make the entire main floor open-concept. The wall we'd be removing also closes in one side of the stairwell so installing new banisters etc. would be required too.
The previous owner told us that the wall isn't load bearing but we need someone to confirm that before doing the work.
We're also wanting to cut a hole into the west facing exterior wall of the house and install a new 3'x4' window which can be opened.
Finally, we're looking to replace two similarly sized windows with new ones.
The work must be completed by the end of July.
Calgary House is 1550 Sq Ft 3 bedroom bungalow built in 1976. It has a bay kitchen window, large living room window. Other wise pretty normal. Three small basement windows w/window well access (aluminum sliders)
Want to replace all windows and with some advice, create even more light into the house than is there now. (additional windows or skylight)
I would like to have 2 large front windows, 3 bedroom windows and kitchen windows replaced or fixed if they can. I would like to have the windows that have the blind between the 2 pains in the front windows as they face West so get the afternoon sun. I would also like to have them solid in the middle pain with the crank open windows on the side.
Hope to get some quotes soon.
