Various projects including: -driveway widening requires cutback of front lawn and retaining wall (I want to reuse stone for the wall currently being used in the back yard, as this matches the retaining wall on the other side of the driveway). -Wooden deck (floating) about 20x10 in yard (not attached to anything. -Stone patio around hot tub. -Dble garage ceiling needs to be taken down, reinsulated and redone. It's currently old drywall. Also a small window in the garage needs replaced. - Current basement has 2 pc bathroom. Want to enlarge and install shower stall. - Some painting interior painting.
I currently have a property in downtown Barrie where the Attic is very large but not being used. It is currently only accessable via pull-down letter in second floor.
However, the Attic is Large, Tall, and already have 2 large windows on front and back, so I would like to make it into living space.
The area of 2nd floor is aproximately 900 square foot rectangular shaped, and Attic's roof is reverse V shaped, with highest point ~10-11foot from ground.
I would like to have a staircase built going from 2nd floor to attic, a bathroom on the attic, and 1-2 bedrooms on the attic.
Please let me know what the estimate would be. Thanks.
Good day, we own a home in barrie and would like to have a basement doorway put in, it will have to be dug out footings and tile bed plus stairs and poured cement and water proof to the house my budget can be more the 5000 I am putting in a 30 inch door so the wall will have to be cut as well. We cant get a big hoe in so it will all have to be done with smaller equipment.
Hello, I have moisture problems in my basement that have resulted in some mold. I believe the moisture is coming from sweating galvanized piping and possibly leaks from the foundation & old basement windows.
My house has a small basement with poured floor (approx 400sf) the rest is sandy crawlspace. (the moisture problem is in the poured floor section)
I plan on moving everything out of the basement so that the mold can be cleaned, plumbing done. (and whatever is necessary....windows replaced, caulked etc.....)

Another project, we are considering adding a 2nd level to the front of our back split - creating a stairwell and a master suite with ensuite.
Please contact me. (I do Barrie but # is old Vancouver #)

Hi, My name is Jef C. and I am a mortgage agent here in Barrie. I am working on promoting purchase plus improvements mortgages and I require a contractor that can give me a quote on making improvements to homes that are for sale. Potential buyers would then have the information they need to buy a house that needed work such as an updated kitchen or bathroom and I would offer them a "purchase plus improvements" mortgage that allowed them to finance the improvements as part of the mortgage. The lawyer just holds your money in escrow until the job is completed.
Purchase plus improvements mortgages are readily available from many lenders but are not frequently chosen because of the added time required to get a quote from a contractor to do the needed work. Since most real estate deals leave only 5 days to fulfill conditions, there just isn't time for most buyers to find a contractor and arrange to get a quote. If there were even a rough quote in place already, I think a good number of people would be interested to know that by adding as little as $20 a month to the mortgage for every $5,000 in renovations that a house can easily be transformed in to a dream home right away. I wish I had known about this many years ago, I could have saved myself a lot of aggravation!
If you would like to be on my list of contractors who would like to offer quotes on jobs in this regard, please email me. If you or someone you know needs a mortgage, I also offer generous finders fees as well as bumping referring contractors higher up on my list of people to call.
I have a building with two units already created (i.e. walls, bathroom and kitchen are all there). I'm looking for a general contractor to work through the process of making it legal. Likely some work would be subcontracted out, but in general terms, I would need drawings to satisfy the city, drywall, ceilings, doors, would need fire protection added, etc... If interested in such a project, email me or give me a call.
I am considering changing a double garage into an art studio - no plumbing required, just making it airtight, insulating, drywalling etc. possibly creating a window/skylight and changing the rear opening to the garage to either double doors or a glass/plexiglass type garage door but leaving the front garage doors as they are if possible. I am in north east Barrie near Johnson's Beach area.It is a solid two door garage with also a back door, poured concrete floor and has same level entry to the main floor of the house. Project is somewhat fluid with cost and design ideas looking to find balance. Budget for this is limited despite the indicated range below. Structural integrity is prime concern - my last job through Trusted Pros was not a success so I will be screening applying contractors quite carefully. I should ad, there are 2 other projects to come, a continuation of a deck to wrap around the house, and finishing part of an unfinished basement to be set up for working out. Also adding two built in closets in a bedroom that currently has none. I'm hoping to find someone who can, over the next year or so help me with these projects once I find the right contractor.
Thanks for looking at my job. Hope the right company is out there!

I had a beautiful vine growing up the side of my house which got up and under the base of the siding and caused it to buckle......it had travelled up quite high...... It ruined the tywrap and drywall and mice are getting in. We have removed the vine and need this repaired ASAP . I also need the other side looked at because one area in my house the floor is freezing and actually gets frost up against the wall..... My house is only 15 years old.
I also would like a quote on an extension.

We are removing old canopy from our plaza. Then we have to give height to plaza and need parapet increase by 3 feet. We need completed framing work and secure that in the roof by bolts as per drawing. Please contact me for more detail. Job is in Barrie
Job will include EW2 framing, Paripit framing and flashing.
A car crashed into the center column of a dual garage home. The work needing to be done is as follows from what I can assess.
The center wall needs to be put back to the center. The brick needs to be re pointed. The garage tracks might need to be replaced if they are too bent to return to normal traction. The whole front of the garage has to realign straight with the lintel above the garage doors being reset to it's original position.
Roughly 18x22 garage. will need the pad + footings. 1 side entrance door, vinyl siding, insulated, fascia, sofits, 1 window (sized of a normal everyday single hung style, nothing major or fancy) gable roof, singled and gutters. Would like to get away with stick framing instead of engineered trusses. Need it big enough to fit tote bins in for added storage, say 4-5' from the middle to peak of roof.
Basement entrance will need to be covered with an entrance way. Vinyl or stucco siding will do. Build to height of the door to enter the entrance, and slopped backwards towards road.
Looking for estimates right now, and building in the near future. Just want an idea of what I would be looking at.
