Main foundation of house built in 1886 but house is recently renovated with various additions over the past 50 years. Weatherstripping on some of the exterior windows is deteriorating, caulking is showing mould, back window of sunroom has an exterior leak in its frame. All the frames of the windows at the back need repainting as does the wooden siding back there. Two of the 6 windows have lost their vapour seals. The chimney was reconstructed some time ago and bits of concrete are falling off of it. The vinyl siding is in good condition but needs cleaning at the top. Currently, the backyard water faucet is inoperable because the pipes to it burst two years ago. There is no ladder to get up to the eaves. One downspout is plugged.
3 season sun room was old when I bought this house 20 years ago - replaced roof, windows & door but it now needs to come down. For 2 years has been leaking (now heavy) where joined to main structure and am sure there is mold behind panelling. Wondering also about structural integrity of abutting wall.
I need to have a complete bathroom remodel done. This includes: electrical, plumbing, tile and replacement of sink, toilet and shower. This is not a large bathroom.
I have a cabinet maker designing the vanity and cabinets but need to have someone to oversee the rest of the project.

KITCHEN. Replace kitchen cabinets, counter top sink & fixtures. Add a dishwasher and put micro wave aboue stove.
BATHROOM. Replace bath tub & fixtures, toilet & new floor
BATHROOM. New bathroom in basement, nothing there & new floor in basement
GARAGE. Garage in back yard size depending on what my lot, permits etc; will allow. Hoping for about 240 square feet.
Replace eves trough
DRIVEWAY. Redo driveway and add extension to meet with new garage.
May be some other things but will be based on cost.
This is basically a big, open, empty, single-room, 1.5 storey addition for year round "green room" to house tropical plants / indoor pond / etc. Windowed on 3 sides, 4th side abuts existing residence. Prefer slab floor that can be hosed down, so will need drainage to septic.

Square footage: Approx. 350 - 400 sqft
Preferred materials: slab foundation with drainage, brick & wood clad to match existing, cedar shake roof to match existing, basic plumbing, basic electrical, 4-5 skylights, fully windowed walls.

We are looking to move our laundry room from the basement onto the back room of our main level, there is already all the plumbing and electrical as there is currently a washroom and separate shower. We want to take the wall down from the shower and place the washer and dryer in there, also want to replace the flooring from carpet to some kind of heavy duty flooring to make it a laundry room mud room as it already has it's own separate entrance.
I am not sure the exact problem. My living room ceiling is leaking when it rains. The area is right at the front of my house. I have board and batten wood on the front of my house and think the water may be getting in from a gap in the wood. There is also a window right at that area so could be that also. It is not a roofing or foundation problem. It does not leak every time it rains only when it is windy. We are open to the possibility of having to put up vinyl siding if necessary as the rest of the house is done in siding.
I live in Oshawa.

Found a yellow patch of drywall on my slanted ceiling in my loft today.
Cut it, and it was quite wet.
Need to get some quotes on having it fixed properly.
Not interested in just covering it up and doing a patch job.
It's my kids playroom, I can't risk there being mould in there.
Would you be able to come and look at my house with a view to quoting for the repairs which need to be done to make it insurable? See below an e-mail from a local insurance company indicating what would be required. I also have my house inspector's report.

Subject: HOME INSURANCE
In order to obtain insurance on your Home, the main issues would be:
Roof - roofing should be under 20 years old. The inspection on your home indicates that the front porch roof is between 1-2 years old, and the rear area is "relatively new". For the main part of the house, the age was not determined but the inspection indicates that it requires to be upgraded.
Hydro - all Knob & Tube wiring must be removed. Your inspection was unable to establish the condition of the other wiring since the Hydro was turned off. It did however recommend that the Water Meter and Gas Line be bonded (junipered). Since the date of the last update of the Hydro system could not be established, an inspection by an electrician would confirm its condition and let you know of any concerns which need to be addressed. Insurers prefer that wiring be updated or inspected.
Heating - the age of the heaters could not be established in the inspection, but a service of the system was recommended. Again, it is preferred that heating should be updated every 20 years.
Plumbing - pipe should be copper for water supply and plastic for waste. Your Home has galvanized pipe which the inspection indicates is showing signs of corrosion. The Galvanized pipe should be removed completely.
Basement Stairs - there is no handrail in place. One should be installed.
Water Damage - there appears to be leakage into the basement area. Your inspection indicates that the grading around the home be checked, and adjusted as required, and also that the downspouts be extended to ensure that water flows away from the home.
Hot Water Tank - your inspection notes that it is over 20 years and should be replaced.
The inspection makes several other recommendations, but these are the main areas which are of particular concern to potential insurers.
With the home upgraded in these areas, we would be in a better position to find coverage for you.
