I have a detached two-car garage (built in the 1960's) which sits on loose footings and has an asphalt floor. The structure and roof are still in good shape and I would like to save the building if possible.
I would like to know if the garage can be jacked-up, asphalt removed and a concrete slab poured in its place?
I can forward pictures upon request.
The floor near the door has completely cracked off from the rest of the garage. Their appear to me minor hairline cracks that have been filled over the rest of the garage floor. I have been told by two contractors, that I would have to replace the whole floor, so I am looking for an estimate for that.
I am interested in getting a quote for replacing my entrance concrete steps and stoop
The rebars inside my front stoop are beginning to protrude and rust and as a result, contractors have told me I cannot resurface the stoop and landing and should consider replacing it altogether.
It's a front stoop (1 piece) consisting of a landing and 3 steps - about 50€ wide and the landing is about 40€ deep.
I have a 1950's house in Overbrook (near intersection of Donald and St-Laurent). The front concrete steps are crumbling. I need a handyman to fix them. I did get a quote from a concrete repair guy for $2,500!!! Way too much as I'm looking to just fix it so it looks decent, is safe and functional. I need this project to be completed before June 30, 2009.

Garage floor has a series of cracks in it, and doesn’t have a proper drainage system.
I would like to get a simple drainage solution in place, and have the floor resurfaced.
Drainage sewer is located just outside the garage, but water pools and stays in the garage versus flowing out to the sewer.
As part of a townhouse complex we are looking to have our main driveway and garage area resurfaced or repaved. This should also include repairs to drains and access hole areas (former concrete seals have eroded).
This project could also include the installation of a gate (with electronic opening) to close off access to the main garage area.
The complex has 14 owners and I am the President of the co-tenancy committee.
I have a basement room with a concrete sub floor of about 290 square feet that needs to be levelled. It's cracked in the middle (already been inspected and is not structural crack), and the edges are lower than the middle by at least .5 inches. Needs to be levelled prior to a flooring installation.
We live in a 4 storey condo complex. The floors are all un level. We installed engineered hardwood on this but we still have bouncing and creaking. We have our condo on the market and this issue is coming up repeatedly and is an issue in selling. We'd like an estimate to level the floors and options of costing flooring, ie ceramic, hardwood, or engineered again.
Hi, I just purchased a condo that happens to have rough concrete walls on one side of the living room. I was wondering if you polish concrete walls, how long it would take per wall and how quickly you could get into the condo. I live in Stittsville but the new condo is downtown. The wall in the living room is 17' by 9'. I don't need a high gloss polish, rather just need to get the high areas ground down and generally smoothed out. The condo is still empty so now is the time to get it done. Please let me know asap.
I have been renovating my basement and have removed the old cement floor and rubble that was under it. I have but down my crushed stone and insulation and ready to pour a new floor. Looking for someone to pour the new floor. Rough size is 35'x17' and a 4" slab. Located in Old Ottawa South.
There is a cimented path that leads you to the stairs and the front landing of the house. Problem is the path is downhill a bit. In the winter we often get icy storms and you guess it right, you slide your down and difficult to go up therefor very dangerous if any one knock him / herself out because of that. The angle may be less then 10 inches. The path is a the length of the half of the house. The surface is quite damaged. I am not sure I want to break it with a jack hammer to replace with patio bricks. I am thinking of pouring a couple of inches of ciment once I set up the form around it. And to add or make a step on that path. I ask some guys around me, some agree I should just pour new ciment using adhesif and some discourage me from doing so. I should just break the old ciment and make all new.
Can anyone advise me on this?
If pouring new ciment on old ciment is good idea or ?
If so, what type of ciment ? glue? will it be stable for the winter? specially if I get some ice i would need to pic the ice off ??/
We have a home that is 90 years old in Old Ottawa South. We are looking for a company that will come in and remove the existing cement and level the floor. And pour a new cement floor. The existing cement floor is 2" think and very old and easy to break up. Under the floor is gravel and stones. We are not going down below the footings so no underpinning is needed.
Concrete porch topped with flag stones requires repairing. Unfortunately the snow plow took a piece of these steps and I am looking for someone that can permanently repair these steps. I am open to suggestions. If you are interested, have a drive by and feel free to examine the porch and if you want to give me some suggestions and want to meet with me, please send me an e-mail. Thanks
Looking to replace the front concrete steps on a single family home.
There are two steps leading to a landing, along with a railing and a thin metal rod going up to the overhanging roof. The steps are hollow and might be able to get broken up and left under the new stairs. The steps are 72" wide, the landing is 42" deep, and the landing is 19" from ground level.
I trust that I've provided sufficient measurements, description, and photographs for you to be able to provide a preliminary cost estimate through email.
we need to have the drywall surrounding our fireplace replaced wih cement board prior to installing a gas insert. The drywall is to the ceiling at present so we need just 12 inches or so above the fireplace opening done (and the sides) in order to meet code. We will re-paint ourselves.
