Am a young real estate investor (28) who owns three investment properties and am looking to pick up a few more within next few years. I am still looking for a go to person I can call on for my property needs for years to come. I am looking someone who is reasonably priced, reliable and stands by their work. I will be able to give lots of work in return. I have some work that needs to be done on two properties. Both are studnet properties so looking for it to be done with cheap, durable, easily cleaned materials.
Property 1 - Guelph - Small kitchen needs new floor. Ceramics to be ripped up (I may do it) and replaced with vinyl flooring (I will pick up). Small bathroom needs completely replaced. Old stuff needs to be removed, and need new sink, toliet, enclosed shower, new vinyl floor. Again student housing, so cheap and durable is name of game. Low water-use shower head and toliet.
Property 2 - Guelph - Needs approx 10 windows replaced (about 2x4 ft each) and new screen door. Student housing, I figure single pane, vinyl windows are best.. again cheap and durable.
Partial removal of load bearing wall and replace with French Doors. Repair hardwood floor where wall removed. Relocate closet entrance to adjoining room. Walls are plaster. Refinish hardwood floor in entire second floor. 3 rooms, hall and stairs - approx 600 square feet. Must be completed by Dec 15th 2009
A bouncy main floor (hardwood, ceramic and carpet). The project would be the ntallation of IBS 2000 (go to luxorcorp .com for product info). The 48 inch high crawl space is open to nail these pieces. The home is a bungalow - with a half loft, condo development. The fix would be in the family room, master bedroom and kitchen area. Spoke with the Rona supplier of product and he claims a 'handyman' can install the product. The condo is 14 years old, 1300 square feet, and the crawl space houses a furnace (on its side suspended by metal bars). I would be interested if some soundproofing could be used and installed. There is some vibrations to the main floor when furnace is running.
Thank you for your time, Traci
Hi there - We have a 450 sq ft. carriage house circa 1890, in downtown Guelph. We're hoping to renovate (enlarge) the existing powder room to include a tiled shower, including a wash wand, purchase and install kitchen cabinetry and counters to maximize the small space, and install laminate flooring throughout. The carriage house will serve as an in-law suite for visiting relatives. We are looking for fast work, durable construction but not top of the line finishes as this is not our principal dwelling.
Looking for combination pricing for major century home overhaul. front door, 12 windows, aluminum siding replaced with regular siding or stucco, garage door, possible interiot refinish dining room and living room, floor resurfacing/repair, drywall repair and taping, floor leveling option, etc. Also curious about adding a 2nd floor and what that may cost (ballpark guess is ok).
We bought a house in the east end of Guelph last year. It is roughly 20 years old. One of the issues that needs addressing is the cold room. There is a bit of mildew and it has been recommended to us that the door be replaced and the room be cleaned. There is also some normal-grade Styrofoam lining the ceiling, which is apparently a no-no and needs to come out. As a result, I am considering having the room finished instead as a closet/storage room - or perhaps a sound studio. I don't need a cold room and would prefer to have consistent temperature in the basement rather than worry about condensation between the two rooms. The room is not large - roughly 10 feet deep, 56" wide and 88" in height. Obviously, my concerns are proper sealing/insulation to ensure there are no future mold issues behind the walls. Ideally, the room would include drywall and some type of flooring. Since it will likely be a closet, I am not picky on the type. I'd love to hear your thoughts and get a general idea of cost.
Thanks very much!
I need a contractor to add a portico/enclosed front porch to a small cottage. Some necessary upgrades would be: roof, window replacement, new floor, regrade of the front yard, painting, backyard porch pavers, kitchenette replacement and bathgroom upgrades. I've posted the white cottage under consideration and what I'm hoping the exterior will look like after the renovation.
Surprise! We're having a third baby and we only have the master + two bedrooms upstairs.
What we do have upstairs is additional space to turn into a 4th bedroom. However, for that bedroom to be of a reasonable size, we will need move a bathroom. We're exploring what the cost may entail to decide if renovating or moving makes more sense.
As stated in the title, we're looking to convert our upstairs bath and den space into a 4th bedroom. Then, to replace the bath, we would convert the current master bath and walk-in closet area into two smaller bathrooms (one family, one master) and a smaller walk-in closet.
I've attached the original house floor plan from the builder (current-upstairs) as well as our best guess at how to remodel the upstairs to make this work (new-reno).
We're not completely new to renovations, having finished our basement ourselves with a rec room, guest bedroom, 3 piece bathroom and storage room and we would be open to doing some of the demo and finishing work ourselves to save some money if possible.
The hardest aspects of this project for us and where we know we would need some help would be moving the bathroom (altering the plumbing, especially for the toilet in the new bathroom, as well as switching out the window in the current den area for an egress window for the new 4th bedroom).
We have no idea what this would cost and would be interested in hearing some rough estimates (cost and time) for both a fully finished job, as well as basic prep for finishing the job ourselves. When we say finishing it ourselves, that would entail you moving the bathroom and roughing-in the new master bathroom, but not finishing it. Essentially just framed-in, plumbing ready, vented and electrical run. We would tile, install baseboards and trim, install vanities, mirrors, fixtures, toilets, shower hardware, etc.
Our start date is flexible, but the baby is due in September so having the 4th bedroom and at least the family bathroom done by then would be a must.
We're also open to new ideas based on our current floor plan if you have them.
Thanks kindly for your time and consideration.
Sizes can be seen in the attached files

We're open to ideas on materials for finishes (if you are estimating a finish)
The building is a 120 years old bungalow with a room in the roof space. There is easy access to the site with space to place a dumpster on drive.
The project is the merging of two small bedrooms, on the first floor, into one large room of approximately 250 sq ft.
This will be achieved by the removal of a lath and plaster wall, approximately 12ft in length, and other remodelling.
Although the wall to be removed is not considered to be load bearing, but taking into account the age of the building, it is anticipated that a suitably sized wooden beam be fitted to support the structures above once the wall has been removed.
In addition to the above the following items will be included in the work.
Remove existing hardwood flooring
Remove one water filled baseboard radiator
Frame a space to make a hall closet approximately 2ft deep x 3ft wide in what was the second bedroom area
Re-hang the second bedroom door on opposite opening for the door to the new hall closet
Make good all plaster work and match to existing surfaces
Install 4€ crown moulding to new room
Fit new base boards where needed, and match with existing mill work
I have an older home (100+years) that has an odd mix of siding/finishes. The front of the house has a brick facade that goes from the ground to about 3 feet up. This brick is falling off (old insulbrick is behind). I need to get this repaired or replaced with something that fits with the current siding (the brick is not too pretty). I also need to have the cement step ripped up and replaced, and two new screen doors installed.
I am looking for someone with the experience to handle the potential pitfalls of an old house, and the creativity to come up with an attractive solution. I would also prefer to hire locally (Guelph).
We have ceramic tile on the majority of the main floor including the kitchen, hall way, two piece bathroom, and front entrance that we would like torn up and disposed of so we can install new flooring ourselves. We also have Vinyl flooring in the living room that we would like removed. Finally, there is a half-wall, approximately 3 feet high, between the living room and kitchen that we would like removed, and we would like the adjoining walls "cleaned up" with dry wall.

We are looking to turn our garage back into a garage on our rental property. The last owners converted part of the garage into a room. This is a small job but I am curious if you could come out and take a look to see what it may cost to have a contractor do the work as we just don't have the time.

I have a 100 year old house that needs some work. Some things about the house have just been subject to neglect over the past 30 years and some things are the result of some shotty renovation work done recently. There's an extra wall that needs removing, flooring work to be done, and a full kitchen and bathroom reno.
I'd love to walk someone through the house as soon as possible so that I can get moving on this project.

My home is 35 years old and is approx. 1200 sq. ft. (2 storey). It needs a new roof and new shingles.
