Home is located in Burlington, relatively new (built in 2005) by Fernbrook - Winchester Model. Home is 2,100 square feet as published by the builder.
The basement is unfinished and unoccupied and covers approximately 850 square feet. It has a sum pump and rough in 3 piece bathroom. Basement is shaped in a L configuration.
We are looking to entertain bids to complete the basement as follows;
1) laundry room with linen closet, tiled floors
2) room for a 3 piece bathroom (a prefabricated shower - no tub).
3) a living room that will be separated by a half wall with possibly a gas fireplace. either carpet or engineered hardwood.
4) because of the sump pump - this would require its own little room.
5) furnace and hotwater tank room
Bathroom ensuite upgrade:
1)looking to install a double sink on the current cabinets (its 5 ft long)
2)because we are having tile issues with the current shower (it is a triangular shape of 48''x32'') we need the walls retiled. We would like to see if a fiberglass flooring could be used instead tiles due to draining issues.
3)tub maintenance around the drain due to leaking.
Our budget for the project is $20,000 to $25,000 and are open to contractors suggestions. We are realists about the costing of the project as well.
I am interested in adding a basement entrance/walk-out to my home. I am looking for a contractor who can A) assist with any permits required including variance applications if necessary, 2) provide detailed drawings of the work, 3) excavation and construction of the walk-out. During the construction, one basement window may be replaced with a larger window to allow for more lighting. I would like to meet with interested contractors to review alternative locations for the entrance with respect to cost and interference with the existing landscape.
Most likely entrance will be at rear of house. Any equipment may need to be craned over the house due to fence and ladscaping.
Concerns for the project:
1) location of the walk-out may disrupt the landscaping and/or appearance of the property.
2) walk-out may interfer with setbacks, requiring a variance application.
I am also interested in doing a renovatin to the basement itself shortly thereafter; this will be a phase 2 that the contractor would be considered for...
WE are looking at purchasing an old home in Niagara Falls whciuh requires a few updates in order to live in it. It still has knob and tub wiring and the basement is requiring I guess some foundation work due to the smell and water leakage. It has a hot water radiator system we would also like to get looked at to make sure it is in a good working condition. It would also be nice to know if the insualation in the walls and attic is the appropriate R value for the winter time. To try and cut on heating cost.
The house still has the original windows and doors. So it would be nice to get an estimate on that. And have the roof looked at to see when that would need to be replaced.
We are going threw the house this Sunday around 5:30p.m. I don't know if this gives any time for contrators to come threw but we could reschedule another time if need be.

We need to renovate our condominium in Burlington. A brief overview of the main things to do

New flooring in kitchen, halls and living room
Replace baseboards throughout
New doors throughout

2 bathrooms (4 and 5 piece) need upgrading. Flexibility on amount of work to based on cost.
Install a door from the interior of the house to the interior of the Garage. currently, no doorway exists in the planned location. House is approx 12-14 years old. Installations will also require reloacation of the central vac unit as it is currently mounted in the garage in the same location the door is to be installed.
We would like to finish our driveway with asphalt and then do some kind of stonework from the driveway to the backyard and then add two huge stone steps to the front entrance. Our house is 4 years old and currently our driveway only has gravel. My husband would also like to have the driveway heated or at least some parts of it (we need assistance on determining how much to do with heating).
Driveway is approximately: 2070 sq. ft.
Walk way from the driveway to backyard is approximately: 240 sq. ft
*We may have to do something to the curb because a few cars that have come up our driveway hit the bottom of their car on the curb.
This project would be done when the weather permits driveways to be paved and we would like to find out how much this will cost so we can budget for it and book a company to have this completed this year.
Drywall repair is small water damage repair. Install of Crown Molding is the start of several other interior upgrades that I want to undertake Bit by Bit over period of time (this year and next).

Wanted Fiber flooring (Noted at Home Depot) to be installed for entrance, hallway to kitchen, kitchen and side washroom. New trim to be installed with flooring.
Other work to be considered, Wallpapering rooms, new trim for openings into kitchen, hallway, wooden stair railing, front window replacement.
Looking for a Do it all contractor. Someone I can go to for anything when required.
1960's 1200 sqft bungalow in downtown Burlington. The house needs major interior work and therefore a fair share of demolition going on in the basement and upper levels. I would simply like to add a washroom for the master bedroom which is directly above the basement washroom.
I would like a quote on just the raw plumbing required. i'm hoping to start the project the first week of October.
Looking for a top to bottom, inside and out renovation. From the garage - new door with higher clearance and an entrance directly into the house), backyard pool and landscaping to a full new kitchen and 2.5 bathrooms, and fully finished bsmt. Our house is approx 31 years old, two storey, roughly 2300 sq ft. In my dreams would have most environmentally sound, energy efficient, low maintenance products from roofing materials to alternatives to drywall (if there are any) and everything in betw. There has been a new kitchen about 10 years ago (terrible and cheap) and bathroom upgrades (same as kitchen). We do not plan to add on except to make our front entrance part of our house and add on a new porch. Electrical upgrades might be required, as well as new ducting, venting (can these be any more compact???). Would like larger window wells for the bsmt so can add new larger windows. New windows throughout, new slider or french doors to backyard, new front door, new siding, roof(?), soffit, guttering.... Would like to get a complete design of everything and the best order to do things in (although would love the main floor and backyard to be done first) and then will likely have to do the reno in three stages. That's the basics. Cheers.
We have projects in family room, guest bathroom and laundry room of our home.
12' x 18' - Remove wood panelling, fireplace wall facade brickwork, decorative ceiling beams, wall-to-wall carpeting. Modernize gas fireplace wall, install drywall, extend one wall 18" and install laminate flooring. Track or wall lighting systems. Finish with decorative molding.
Remove shower unit and install tub/shower unit (surround). This requires moving some portions of walls to enlarge bathroom to 9 x 7, reducing a laundry room closet to accomodate this. Possible construction of storage cupboards. Laminate flooring extended to landing and bathroom. Replace cedar ceiling with drywall.
9 x 12
Move washer to beside current dryer. Remove utility sink. New built-in cupboards and counters with new stainless sink. New vinyl sheet flooring.
Looking for a contractor/ electrician to properly fill in a window above a fireplace so that a flat screen television can be placed there. This will involve adding proper support/ insulation/ drywall, changing the wiring for the cable/power/speakers to move them to this area and on the exterior of the house we would like to add stucco (in keeping with the colors of the house) to the inside of the circle brick work, moving/ installing the center channel speaker - and all other work as necessary to complete the job professionally and with safety in mind (i.e. don't want heat to affect the tv).
We are also going to change the fireplace surround and would want the quote to include removing the old surround and adding new stone all the way up the wall w/ a new mantle.
We would also be interested in an adder to the base quote for securing the tv mount, hanging the flat screen television and installing a fan in the existing fireplace (we will supply the fan to suit the model of fireplace).
There are also a few smaller jobs that we are interested in having done at the same time that we would also like quoted as extra, including: moving the thermostat (to be further down the same wall) and replacing an existing chandelier in the dining room.
Please note this is a 2 year old home in the Burlington area. Also, we are looking for the work to be done between Friday August 24th - Monday August 27th.
