We have two areas of the house that need repair. We had a roof leak over the winter and have a plaster ceiling that needs repair. Willing to replace with drywall and, if possible, add led pot lights. Also, it's a mid-century home so would like to add attic insulation if possible (flat pitched roof).
In basement, have had a flood and we have a basement drainage system being placed in April. We will need to repair stairs to the basement, replace plaster/drywall, and install laminate into the hallway and laundry room.
I've owned a small *very* rustic cottage in Dundas, Ontario for many years .. the idea is to transform the entire presentation of the house with this front addition, as a start.

• Four season enclosed front porch

• Supported on concrete piers (keep in mind that digging in Dundas can be challenging, as the soil is *incredibly* full of rocks)
• Insulated plywood floor
• Shed type roof, shingles to match house
• Pressure treated framing
• Aluminum soffit, fascia, trough
• Small wooden step at front door
• Single front door with top half glass panel and sidelights

I will take care of all painting/drywall, finish flooring etc and can also deal with electrical, insulation and HVAC if necessary, depending on quote amounts.
This is a 5 year old bungalow with a double garage. The framing of the left garage door is splitting vertically on the side close to the pillar separating the 2 doors and the caulking to the brick is loosening up. Also the parging done on the same pillar is crumbling. I would need the 2 items to be fixed. I realize this is a tiny repair for the professionals but something a homeowner cannot afford to ignore. Can someone interested in doing good repair work give me a quote.
We are considering installing an indoor pool as we would like all year use of the pool. We would need an additional room constructed. We are looking for a small pool for exercise use only, no diving board or slide. We are thinking 12 feet*20 feet with a maximum 5 foot depth.
As for the room, regular exterior wall construction with sky lights in the ceiling with a non-slip surface surrounding the pool approximately 5 foot walkaway all around the pool.
I realize this is not much information. I am not sure if anyone can quote from this or not.
There is a sunroom that was added to the back of the house attached to the kitchen. One window is always breaking and I'm suspecting it has to do with the leaning of the one end of the sunroom. It stands on four concrete posts that is on top of a exiting porch concrete pad.
Sunroom is approx. 15' x 12'
I need a free estimate for the following:
I had a flood in my basement last April. The cause of the floor has been addressed. Now I need the Man Cave restored to its original condition which will involve:

I am looking for someone to install ceramic tile in my kitchen and a new island, install hardware floors in dining room, living room and probably on some stairs.

I recently moved to Dundas in a two story 4 bedroom house. I want to paint all the house, change the kitchen/entrance tiles and renovate the master bathroom. In addition to minor electrical tasks and minir landscaping outside the house. I was hoping if you can see the house and give me a quote? If possible Emails are preferred. Calls during the weekdays Preferably after 5pm.
My wife and I recently purchased a home built in 1990. The house is in great shape, and in general, well maintained. After moving, we have a little bit of money leftover (about $15000) and can dip in to a small line of credit for more if justified.
We were looking to make some updates to the house, but obviously we would like the best bang for the buck.
We are looking for estimates and ideas on how this money can be best used to update the house.
Some ideas we have are (in no particular order):
update some or all of the 2.5 bathrooms
update flooring from carpet to laminate in the living room/ dining room
update the fire place in family room to include ledge stone instead of ceramic
update the kitchen in the most feasible way
finish the rest of the basement, to install a bathroom and den (currently, 2/3 of the basement is finish, the other 1/3 is unfinished)
complete overhaul of backyard landscaping
Or any other ideas that will improve the look of the house for relatively low cost!
We would like the wall removed from our kitchen/living room. The wall contains HVAC and electrical. There is also plaster moulding on our living room ceiling that we do not want disturbed. The living room floor will have to be leveled with the kitchen and replaced (hardwood), along with the baseboards. We are also looking for a non-load bearing wall to be removed from our basement and the laminate hardwood flooring replaced.
Local contractors only! (Hamilton area). Must have valid contractor's licence, WSIB and insurance.
I need a wall removed from between my kitchen and livingroom. I have a coved ceiling in the livingroom that can't be ruined. There is electrical and heating/cooling in the wall that will have to be re-routed.
I'm looking for a company in the Hamilton area who will cover all aspects of this job, removing the wall, sub-contracting the HVAC, electrical and structural engineer drawings as well as helping me submit the permit to the city of Hamilton.
1954 Cape Cod style house in Dundas.
We are looking at a second floor renovation:
-one unfinished room to become a bedroom, requires insulation, drywall, electrical, everything.
-upper hallway requires wall refinish and paint (old wallpaper was removed, some came off, some did not)
-minor main floor bathroom work--new sink installed, new tub and tile installed, possibly new ceramic floor
-there is a half bath on second floor, we might remove a large linen closet and have a shower installed
-depending on cost there is a second bedroom that requires renovation including building a walk in closet, this would also involve an entire new en suite bathroom (currently it's a small office space)
I would like to convert my basement into an apartment with a separate entrance that I can rent. The back door has three steps up to the main house and nine steps down to the basement. There are open, oak railing all around. I would like this closed off to the main house. Also, there is a large wet bar area in the basement I would like to convert to a kitchenette. I would need the bar removed and counter installed as well as a small stove and a fridge. This project would be on a tight budget and would need to be in rentable condition by August latest. I am only looking for estimate to see if this project is a worthwhile idea to generate extra income for paying the mortgage.
I have a several projects that need to be quoted starting December 1, in a small, older home in Dundas Ontario.
I have split this proposal into 2 parts, needing to be done immediately, and needing to be done.
-in the unfinished basement, there is a support pillar hat is rotting, and split that requires replacement.
-In the Kitchen there I a small alcove that has been used as a computer workspace. I wish it removed, and a closet built for the washer and dryer. It should have shelves for storage of linens, as well as folding doors. 220v, Lighting, Plumbing, Drain, and a Vent will need to be done (120V plug already exists there).
-The stairs leading to the basement are quite steep, and there is no railing. A railing needs to be installed.
- There are 2 main 1st floor rooms (approximately 10x10, and 10x15) where there are no ceiling fixtures for lights. As well, the ceiling in one of the rooms has multiple cracks that have been sloppily repaired over and over again. I would like the existing ceiling torn down, pot lights installed, and the ceiling replaced in 1 of the rooms, and pot lights installed in the other.
The place is available to look at December 1st, would you like to quote it??
Main floor remodel (13 year old home; main floor is 900 sq ft) including:
Removal of 3 walls (2 load bearing), installation of new beams & joists; two new footings in basement, rerouting some duct work. All other demolition has been completed by homeowner.
I have architect drawings ready for permit. May include some plumbing and electrical - I want this separated out in bid. Plumbing includes moving stack from 2nd floor into wall - currently sits about 8 inches out from exterior wall in wall to be demolished (shown on drawings) and rerouting sink & dishwasher pipes to new island.
Electrical includes moving current boxes for lighting fixtures and new wiring for pot lights. The rest of the project will be done by homeowners.
We are buying an older type bungalow in the Dundas/Hamilton area and would like to make the following improvements to the existing living space before we move in. 1. We want to add (approximately) a two storey, 36ft x 13ft structure to the front of the house. This structure should contain three levels. On the top floor we would like to house a Master bedroom suite. Below this top floor, on the main floor, we want to accommodate an extension to the kitchen, a foyer, entrance closet and two piece bathroom, a (new) part of the living room and a dining room. On the third level we would like a basement for this new section as the existing house does not have any basement. This new basement will be used as a recreational room and should include a bathroom. 2. There is a pre-existing deck and gazebo at the front of the house which we would like to relocate to the rear of the house. This deck will be attached to the back of the house with a walk out from the rear. 3. There is an existing detached garage and shed at the left side of the property which we would like to relocate to the far left corner/back of the property. We want them to be away from the house.
