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.....)

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 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.
I am looking to get quotes on tiling a bathroom in granite about 40 square feet, facing a fireplace in stone from floor to ceiling with a mantel and also, building and staining a removable wood enclosure for a corner soaker tub to match the vanity. We are considering selling and relocating. We would like this to be done as soon as possible.
This job is only available to carpenters/handymen in Barrie or 10 km outside of Barrie.

I am looking to sell my house (approx. 1400 sq. ft.) and need to get some things done to make it more marketable.
Most of the home needs a fresh coat of paint - family room on main floor, three bedrooms upstairs (2 - 9x9 & 1 - 12x14), stairwell & upstairs hallways as well as all baseboards & door frames.
I also have a kitchen cupboard with a hole in it that needs to be repaired. If this is not possible, I would prefer to have my kitchen cupboards (preferably only upper cupboards, if possible) refaced rather than replaced.
I may also require some finishing touches in my basement. It is mostly finished but the stand up shower is not completed - needs hardware. I also need a portion of the floor to be completed (approx. 6x8)in laminate preferably.
Lastly, most of my backyard is interlock and needs to be freshened up. The limestone has given way over the years so it needs to be repacked, mostly along the edges, in some areas and the stones need to be settled back in.

Do you refinish hardwood floors?
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
I am looking at purchasing a home that is in need of renovations. My intention for the main floor is to move the existing kitchen and to enlarge the bathroom and entrance way. This would involve removing a wall or two and changing the plumbing. The basement is without ceiling and therefore the existing plumbing is exposed. The home has original hardwood floors that i would like to keep therefore it would mean trying to match it up as best as possible for flow throughout the main level. This is a very small post war time built home.
I have some upcoming renovations that I would like to complete to my main floor that I am currently interested in a few companies suggestions/ recommendations for my current situation and collecting quotes for the following works:
Two Piece Bathroom/ Entrance:
- Removal of towel bar (dry wall repair)
- Removal and replacement of vanity, light fixtures and mirror
- Installation of new flooring (current laminate to ceramic)
- Painted (roof & walls)
- Replacement of over head fan for the stove into over microwave/fan (Current issue is the space current in place with the cupboard above does not meet building code, therefore modifications to current cabinet will have to be complete to fit the new microwave/fan unit- I am hoping this is possible)
- Replace counter top
- Installation of back splash (there is none at the current time)
- Installation of new sink/tap
- Installation of new blinds
- Replacement of current dinner light (over kitchen table)
- Installation of new flooring (current laminate to ceramic)
- Painted (roof & walls)
Living Area/ Hall/ Entrance
- Painted (roof & walls)
I currently live in a Townhouse in the south end of Barrie and my plan is to purchase all materials myself such as the micro wave, lighting, mirror, vanity, flooring, back splash, counter top, sink, etc, paint (but that can disused as I can just provide the colours and with the exclusion of tools, nuts/bolts, wire, etc- this to be build into the contractor pricing) my hopes are to have works started within the next month or two.
