Am emailing with regards to the upper deck in a triplex in Etobicoke.
The upper deck does not have a roof covering it, so is exposed to the elements. Recently a repair was done to fix the underside of the deck. Sofitting was installed over the damaged plywood. I then learned that the damaged plywood was wet. We did not determine the extent of the water damage.... .
A week later, the unit below this deck has water entering the living room window. Worried this all may be related.
Is this something you can help me with?
I am based on the westcoast but have a property manager living at the house.
ETOBICOKE - LAKESHORE/ROYAL YORK: 4 Front Stairs leading to my front porch are falling apart. There is a slate/stone interlock overtop a rusty iron mesh that I think covers concrete steps. Frost/ice heave has caused the stone to crumble. These were probablly constructed in the 50's or 60's and the home was built in 1938. I cannot pay the $6,000 to replace the entire staircase as was suggested by a stone mason, nor the $3,000 to reface them with modern-grade thickness stone. I did my own ugly patchwork with concrete to make them safe, but they are an eyesore, with stone facade on either side also falling off.
I am looking for someone to either a) strip the stone facade down to concrete stairs which can then either be patched/painted or b) perhaps build wood stairs on top of the existing concrete if that makes sense. OR if someone can fix or cover up the existing eyesore with concrete to make it look a little more attractive.
I'm a single parent to 3 on a tight budget, having just replaced all the doors and windows. Looking for a payment plan as well.
1950s brick house in South Etobicoke. We presently have an enclosed front porch which runs half the width of the house. It is too narrow to use for anything but storage at 4'x15' and is our main entrance to the house. We would like to tear down the existing storm windows and structures and create an open air deck and expand the deck foot print by 2'x11' (we would leave the entrance way unchanged minus the enclosure windows). We would like a raised deck with railings made that would just be a continuation of the present footprint. This would mean tearing down a half wall of brick and removing a medium size hedge. The present porch floor is concrete. We are unsure about which materials to go with but want something that will match the existing house structure and be low maintenance and environmentally sustainable. Composite flooring or sustainable forest products could be an option.
As the enclosure does provide some insulation to our house we would also like to explore insulation options around our front door as well.
Need to make front porch wheelchair accessible - add railings and at the same time a bit larger so that you can place chairs in the porch. Currently it is a small surface with no railings. Need to put mechanical lift in stairs to second floor to bring wheelchair to second floor from first. This is for an elderly woman.
I am planning to build the wooden fence, and I need someone to mark and divide the property line for posts and dig and set post holes and gravel the bottom of each hole. 11 posts in total. They are 12 feet long posts, so need to go 4ft in the ground.
I also might need one old post, next to the house, to be removed and replaced with the new one.
Must be able to show proof of public liability and property damage Insurance and WSIB before work starts.
Please reply with the quote for a complete job (with and without the removal on that one post) and the date you would be able to complete this job.
We have a small home in etobicoke, Our front concrete porch is cracking along the top and on the stairs. The poles that hold up the awning attached to the porch have breaken away and there is water leaking in to the cold room as a result of this.
We require the concrete porch repaired, as well as a new larger wood porch built over top. The new porch will be wider and will run along the front of house to sit under bay window.
****Only licensed and insured contractors will be accepted****proof will be required at estimate****
We want to repair our existing porch or build a new porch/cantina at the front of our house. The width of the house is approximately 25 to 30 feet. There is an existing block wall with poured concrete top and poured concrete stairs which is approximately 8 feet wide and 6 feet deep to make our current porch. There is a door from our basement into the room this creates, but the porch structure is leaking; block wall has cracked/shifted. We want to obtain a quote to determine how much it would cost to dig out and waterproof the existing structure. We also want to obtain a quote to dig out the whole thing and build a larger porch/cantina to be as wide as the house and about 7 or 8 feet front to back.
I already have the pavers delivered. And I would like to tackle laying the final stonework to save cost.
I am looking for quotes to do the Excavating & disposal of the earth for the patio. Also looking for quotes on the aggregates 8-10" of 3/4 crushed stone (unless reccomended other) and 2" of Limestone screening.

- Co-ordination with Phone/Cable companies requred, as currently the wires run accross my pool, which I want buriied below the patio.
- Location - North Etobicoke M9W-4P3

We own a stone / blond brick, 1 storey, Cape Cod style, 60-65 year old home with a large back yard (40'x138'). The original sunroom (11'x10.5') at the back is sinking into the ground and separating from the house. We would like to tear down the sunroom and install a two-level cedar deck with a pressure treated wood frame. The first part of the deck would be a walkout from the kitchen, 42€ high (15'x19'), with 5 steps and a railing on one side. The second part of the deck would be a landing (10'x10') at 7€ above ground level. The upper part of the deck would require 15' of privacy fencing on one side and 5' of privacy fencing on the other side. We would like to have as much storage as possible built-in under the upper deck using a water drainage system. We are also interested in some extra features such as built-in lights for the stairs + landing and a water spout installed at the base of the upper deck. Our outside water supply is currently at the side of the house and we would like to have a space roughed-in for a hot tub beside the deck for in the future.
My husband and I are interested in somehow incorporating renewable energy in the new deck. Solar powered lights, for example. We still have the old, metal, TV antenna at the back of the house. If there is some way of using this very tall structure for a small wind turbine, solar panels, or a digital TV antenna, then, we will build the deck around it, otherwise, the antenna comes down.
