Master Bathroom- Need to replace vanity and single sink to have two sinks. Need to tile floor and half of two walls around tub and sink. Need to replace fixtures on sinks, tub and shower. Need overhead lighting and mirror lighting.
Main Bath- Floor tiling. Possible replacement of vanity.
Kitchen tile- Need to install tile in kitchen floor and foyer (currently vinyl in kitchen and tile in foyer)
1. Replace bathtub in upstairs bathroom. Existing tub is 57.5" long, 31" wide, and 14" high and has a liner that has leaked so there is water between tub and liner. Above it is 4" ceramic tile and grout. No door, just a shower curtain. We'd like to replace with a tub in the same shape and size, no liner.
2. Install fan in (same) upstairs bathroom; the present fan is vented into attic. I need someone to install a better fan with insulated duct (about 2 or 3 feet) and a roof vent. The roof is 2 stories up, and access from inside the attic may be difficult because of low pitch at that point, joists, and blown-in insulation.
3. The existing duct has leaked into the ceiling in the adjoining hallway, causing damp plaster and mildew in a corner area. I need to have this re-plastered.
4. Downstairs from the bathroom there is water damage in the ceiling, esp. along taped seams in the wallboard. I tried fixing these with spackle and painting them but the fixes did not work, so I need to have them re-plastered professionally.

Hello -- note this project is on Loughborough Lake, about 30 minutes north of Kingston up either Montreal St or Division...near Inverary/Battersea:
1. EXTERIOR WALL REPAIR - Water damage from a plugged eavestrough has left a 3 feet wide x 8 feet high area of punky siding on an exterior west wall. Not sure if structural damage. Traditional horizontal wood siding. Need analysis and siding replacement.
2. RAILINGS - Cedar railings leading to lake and boathouse have rotted and are wobbly. They are sunk into cement and railway ties hold up gravel paths beside them. We have replacement cedar railings potentially on site.
Interested persons, please can you meet with us the weekend of May 8-9 when we are there. In advance, we can send you camera videos that capture both jobs so you have some idea.
This work needs to be completed by early July as we have some renters coming and this is overdue!
We have closet that currently belongs to a room adjacent to our bathroom. We would like to have this changed so that the closet opens as a open faced closet with shelving into the bathroom. This would mean removing some of a wall, building shelves and (optional) closing off the extant doorway in the other room.
Thank you for your advice.

Our home started to have a musty smell in the kitchen. A plumber confirmed there are no leaks on the appliances and a home inspector confirmed the roof is not leaking into the attic. A moisture reading taken through a small hole in the wall indicated higher than normal moisture levels. We suspect vapour barrier was not used or installed properly when the house was built around 2004. The inside of an exterior wall must be opened up, cleaned up and repaired. The project could indicate a requirement for a mojor repair but we will not know until the wall is opened up. Therefore, we need a contractor who has the capability for a larger project but hope it is minor in nature.
I currently live in a 2 story 23 yr old Duplex in Kingston. There are three different projects I would like to complete in order to raise the value of my house. If possible I would like a quote for each individual job and a different quote if I were to get all three projects completed. At this point a ballpark figure would be good as I have no idea how much this might cost. Thank you.
Job 1: On the main floor there is a living room and combined kitchen and dining area. Unfortunately the Kitchen and Dining room are completely separated from the living room by a wall. In addition, because the countertops are on the end of the kitchen with the entrance from the living room and there is an entrance from the backyard in the centre of the wall on the opposite side, there is very limited cabinet space. Ideally, I would like to remove the wall between the two rooms, move the countertop, cabinets and sink from one side of the kitchen to the other and install an island between the living room and the kitchen. This will leave the current location of the kitchen as a dining area.
Job 2: The only bathroom is located on the second floor. It is small with an outdated countertop and ceramic tile that is cracking with crumbling grout. One corner of the bathroom has been pushed in by an oversized closet located in the hallway outside. I would like to slightly expand the bathroom by decreasing the size of the closet in the hallway. I would like to replace the existing vanity and mirror and re-tile the floor.
Job 3: The basement is partially finished but I would like to install a full bathroom and unfortunately there is no bathroom roughed in.
I am looking into renovating a home that has some major Foundation problems. It looks as though one of the supporting walls had been knocked out resulting in serious foundation issues. Floors are uneven, outer face of house is cracked in multilple locations, and doors and windows no longer seal properly. There is no basement but a crawl space, and is on a stone foundation.
This house will require:
- Foundation posts/ JAck posts installed to raise level,
- Floor Repair/ Replace with new floor
- Ducting rework
- New Kitchen
- masonry to front of building, Rebuilt outer
- Seal Roof to house
- Replace all Windows
In essence the entire home needs to be gutted and rebuilt.
I am looking for Quotes to perform initial major repairs to the foundation, windows, and HVAC.
Once this is functional, repairs to the remainder of the house will be made.
I would appreciate quotes for any or all of these projects.
Please let me know.
I am in the process of installing a new bathroom fan and have run into a couple of issues:
1. The old bathroom fan, which was never vented, was attached to one of the bathroom lights. I would like a separate switch or timer for the new fan and am not sure how to do this.
1. I am uncertain of the best way to vent the fan outside (roof or soffit).
As it stands now the fan is mounted in the ceiling, but not connected to electricity or ductwork.
Basically, I would like to hire someone to finish the project: wiring, venting and ceiling repair.
I am just looking to get a rough understanding of the cost that would be associated with renovating a second floor office into a living space that would meet lodging house building code requirements. My hypothetical space would be about 2500 sq ft with 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms. Any rough estimates would very helpful. Thank you.
Paint entire main floor of house (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen hallway, entrance).
Renovation main floor laundryroom (move plumbing, electrical for stackable washer/dryer, add cabinetry, new floor, move dryer vent from floor to wall for stackable and move back 4in in space behind wall.
I would like to have the subfloor in my basement removed. My basement consists of two rooms.
One room is bare concrete floor in good condition and is already taken care of.
The other room that has the subfloor I would like removed is slighly smaller somewhere around 20x15ft. I have started to remove the subfloor and have exposed roughly a 4x4 patch.
The previous owners had a bar in the basement and it appears they had at somepoint reduced the size of the bar. They also for what ever reason had cut a hole in the subfloor then tried to patch it and did a horrible job.
I easily pulled up what they installed, have noticed there a few boards that are rotten... boards the previous owner installed inporperly.
Have lived here for a year and have never had a water issue in the basement ever.
I pulled just small sections of the subfloor in other locations and there is absolutly no water damage or rotten boards its just the one very small area the previous owner screwed up somehow.
Anyway I would like to have you stop by and provide and estimate if you can or send one online.
All i want is it removed is not a hard job just need to create breakpoints and pull it up.
Hear from you soon
House age is about 50 years old.
Part of the floor of my basement suite bathroom is rotting because of water damage. I'd like to replace the floor and toilet. Tile would be the favoured material.
Bathtub would also need to be resurfaced.
The house was built in 1984 and is in good shape. The size of the bathroom is average (not big, not small). I can provide more precise measurements upon request.
It is in a small area in one corner of this basement apartment but my problem is what do I use or who do I hire to clean this sewage up properly so my next tenant doesn't get ill. I think the former owner did the plumbing etc. in this apt about 7 or 8 years ago so the sewage has been leaking out of this pipe for a long time. The building was built in the 1950's. The soiled dryall has been disposed of and the 2 x 4's are still in place but are going to be removed to allow the wall and floor area to be cleaned properly and then replaced. I need feedback from someone who has had experience with this problem before and cost of doing this cleanup.
Back room added 40 years ago has sunk down on one side
braking away from house- slant is noticeable now , needs tio be jacked up and supported with concrete
Room is 8 feet X 8 feet
House built in 50's -needs somone to do project before winter

We have lived in River View Park for the past year.
We would like an estimate of how much it would be to caulk the windows outside (15) and at least one outdoor electrical outlets so that an estimate can be provided Tarion.
We would like the garage door and garage painted.
Other work that we are considering for next year, concrete walkway and fix concrete balcony.
Cold / hot room winterize and plug up outside air vents..
I need a bathroom put in and perhaps a kitchen counter near bathroom. I may need a wall installed between washer and dryer and rest of the room or perhaps, if possible, my washer and dryer installed in another room. I need a sub floor installed in the garage with insulation under it. I need garage doors removed and a window installed in its place. I need a driveway put along the side of my house because of zoning laws.
