Complete Renovation

upstairs+ new bedroom over the garage, move bathroom to be between additon and existing bedroom, old bathroom turned into a laundry room. The master bedroom on-suite to be extended and install a bathtub & redesign.

main floor + remove a wall to make one grand living space plus dining area, new tiles needed in the hallway and kitchen, new cabinets for the kitchen, removal of mold from a leak in the upstairs washroom.

We renovated about 4 years ago & we have had nothing but problems ever since. We desperately need a well respected & professional contractor to do the work. If Bryan can not do the work, then we would like him to over look the work or highly recommend someone. The first main problem is the mold going down the wall from the upstairs main washroom to the basement. Our contractor forgot the cock the bathtub drain with plumbers cocking and all the water ran down the walls causing a major mold problem. The second problem is some of our tiles have cracked on the main floor and the floor is not level. I spent about one month on my hands & knees trying to make it look level. The house is about 27 years old and my dream has always been to remove one wall to make the house an open concept. The house is about 2200 square feet in total.

Living room upgrade

We would like to remove a wall between living room and family room to connect them. The wall seems to be non-load barrier.

The family room floor then need to be re-do with new hardwood floor to match the living room.

Also, there is a wood-burning fireplace that we would like to convert to gas with new look rather than the existing bricks to let us install a TV on top.

Move washer dryer from main floor to basement and use space as mud room?

Hi, I recently purchased my new home and am in two minds about moving my washer and dryer from the main floor to the basement and use the space (about 6 foot wide x 8 feet long) as mud room since this room is also connected to the garage access door. Given that I have 3 young children I was wondering if it would make sense to put a closet instead of having the washer/dryer there? Should I get the builder to do it or is it cheaper to do it after we move it by hiring a contractor?

Need help fixing this house...

I am in the process of buying a house that will need a lot of work! The papers have not yet been signed and I am trying to determine affordability in fixing many of the deficiencies of the house. These are a few of the things I will need done:

- basement is partially finished and will need to be stripped d/t mould found on some walls

- 2 basement windows need window wells and proper drainage. currently, there's none which may be contributing to water leaking in the basement

- exterior window sills are rusted and i want these all replaced with stone sills. there's about 4 windows at the front of the house, 1 side window, 1 back window, 1 bay window, and 3 basement windows. all windows will also need to be replaced as they are currently all rotted and inefficient

- the grading around the house is quite flat and so will need to be regraded to ensure drainage away from the house

- mould remediation in the basement

- there are no vents in the 2 washrooms upstairs...those would need to be put in.

- gutters are still in good condition but will need to be straightened in some areas

- roof is still in good condition but need a bit of maintenance such as fixing flashing

- backyard deck is rotted and needs to be removed and replaced. size is approx 5ft by 10 ft.

The house is 2300 sq. ft...excluding basement. I know it's hard to provide an unseen quote but I need it in order to determine my budget. I guess I'm looking for a general contractor who can do the abovementioned work...and I'd like to get a ball-park quote.

These are the other items that i'd like completed afterwards:

- walls are not even/ some areas will need some mudding and sanding

- painting the following rooms - living room, dining room, family room, hallway on main, hallway on second floor, 4 bedrooms

- all baseboard and door trims need to be replaced and painted

- at present, the kitchen has laminate flooring..would like this area tiled with ceramic

- kitchen cabinet replacement

I'm sure there's more but these are things I'd like completed...but the 1st list is priority.

Removal of a structural wall

I am removing a structural wall from my 28 year old home. I will be replacing it with a steel beam. The beam will be mounted so it fits flush with the existing ceiling. The ceiling joists will need to be cut on both sides of the wall being removed. You will have to bolt wood planks on each side of the beam. The beam will be pre drilled according to the engineer&squot;s drawings. Once that is complete the ceiling joists will need to be attached by joist hangers. I will be using steel poles on both ends to support the beam. They will be installed right in the wall. When complete, it will look like the wall never existed. Before any of the work above can begin, I need you to build temp. wall supports. I will supply on the materials.

I am looking for a carpenter who can do the work in the next 2 - 6 weeks. I only want those who have done this type of work to give me a quote for labour only. Please include in your quote the time frame you think this will take. I also need you to be licensed, have liability, guarantee your work & provide me with a contract. I do have a permit with the Town of Markham & all work will be inspected by the Town.

Thank you,

Repair a Load-Bearing Post

Repair a Load-Bearing Post

One of the wooden load bearing post is bent and I see a few cracks in it. I was wondering what would it cost to repair this.

My suspicion is that the concrete footing that the post is on is sinking (I think) because I don't see any damage on the wood (ie rotting).

Please let me know how much it would cost me to repair the above.

Shed dormers addition on a one and a half storey house

We would like to add shed dormers on the front and back of our one and a half storey house (I think it is cape code style). There are currently 2 bedrooms and one bathroom in the half storey and it is approximately 500 sq. ft. The addition of the shed dormers will increase the square footage to approximately 1000 sq. ft., giving space to create 1 master bedroom with 3 pc ensuite, 2 bedrooms and an additional 3 pc bathroom.

Info. about the house:

-The interior dimensions of the main floor is approximately 35 ft. in width by 25 ft. in depth.

-The house was built in 1954. We moved into the house 2 months ago, therefore we have limited knowledge of the previous renovation projects. With that said, I am not sure if the ceiling joists/floor joist for the upstairs require upgrading.

We are looking for an estimate for the project.
