Addition foundation

I bought my house around a year ago and I was conserened about how the addition was built. The inspector and previous owner all said it was fine. Well my nightmare came true.

The addition is about 12x12, and I recentely found out it use to be a deck. They covered the deck boards with plywood and the build three walls and covered it with a roof. They fixed the inside and it turned out to be a lovely addition.

Well, I noticed the floor was sloaping down towards one side and then I saw from the outside after removing a panel, that the joists that was holding the floor were sitting on soil and rottening away.

So I need someone to come and reframe the floor and support the perimeter walls propperly.

The addition is about 4 years old the house was built in 67.

The site is Hamilton mountain east.

Also ventilation and electricity migth be in need of a check up.

Basement Removal and Mould Cleaning

Good Afternoon,

We are looking for three quotations for the following work to be done:

1. Remove the drywall in the basement and the cold room, as well as the ceiling and dispose of all material removed. The basement is approximately 700 square feet. The house was built in 1890, but the walls were put up in the mid-1970's. There is a bathroom and a half kitchen in the basement that have to be removed and disposed of as well.

2. There is mould in the following areas of the house that has to be cleaned:

a. Basement Laundry Area

b. Main Level Kitchen Ceiling

c. Main Level Kitchen Sink Base Cabinet

d. Second Level Bathroom Vanity Base

e. Second Level Bathroom Ceiling (Ventilation Area)

f. Second Level Master Bedroom (Lower East Wall)

Mould remediation will consist of HEPA vaccuum and wet wipe the mould areas with mild soap and water as per inspection report. We have a mould inspection report that will be provided when contractor is onsite for an estimate.

3. A Plumbing Inspection to repair any leaks. Leaks that we have found are located in the basement laundry area (plumbing leak at water main), main level kitchen ceiling, main level kitchen base sink cabinet (plumbing leak at sink), second level bathroom base cabinet (plumbing leak at sink).

The financing for this project is being done by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation Purchase Plus Program.

Bathroom/Kitchen-2 Phase Reno

Bathroom and kitchen renovation (2-phase). May need plumbing and wiring moved. May need to have an architect look at the possibilities. Considering adding 8' extension to link to external wall to add a window and remove the individual rooms. Right now we have a sep. toilet room and shower room within the 12x12 bathroom space. The kitchen is on main fl. below it and we are considering extending/opening it up by removal of walls and moving an existing powder room. Front double door is off centre and one of its doors is non usable because the kitchen cupboards are behind it. Existing photos attached.

Dormer to create extra head space

We are looking to have a dormer installed on the south side of our rental property with the purpose of creating extra space for moving in larger furniture. We are looking at a 5'x6' dormer without a window, as the neighbour's roof would obstruct any view anyway. It is a two story house, probably near a hundred years old. There is decent attic space. Thank you.

entire home renovation and kitchen addition

i would like to renovate and update my parent's home as they have both passed away. everything needs to be gutted and replaced. it's a rather small living space (i do not have the exact number of square footage at this moment) but the backyard is large enough that an addition can be added to create a larger kitchen. i would like to use bamboo and cork for the majority of the flooring (but most likely tiles in the kitchen, bathroom and parts of the basement; also some carpeting in the basement). i would like the basement to be conformed into at least 2 bedrooms (so that there is enough room for an additional bathroom and laundry room). i would like a new deck in the backyard large enough for a hot tub. i am looking to do this as soon as possible so that it is ready to be moved into by the winter. it has been a nightmare so far with people leading me on and not even courteously calling back to say they're not interested. i am willing to spend around $50,000-$60,000 with a reliable company. hopefully, i can find the right one for the job.

if i am contacted, i can most certainly provide the exact square footage ( i would like to say around 600 sq ft but i'm not completely positive).

thank you.

Exterior wall and window installation

100 year old house. Old porch was turned into interior room, with a bay window on it. Original wall has been removed. We would like to remove the whole room, and have existing bay window installed and a new exterior wall installed. Length of opening is about 10 feet X 8 feet high.

The reason we want to do this is because the room is separating from house, and becoming money pit. It is also a huge cold zone, so possibly no insulation. The bay windows can also be installed as three separate windows, and flat. Which is the option that we would go with.

We would also need existing door installed at original opening. Gas line for sure comes through the base of this room, and would need to be adjusted. Not sure about water, or hydro. The exterior light would need to be moved to new wall as well.
