1. Design and build a deck for a small backyard. It has to support a hot tub (Softtub) and will need a privacy screen at one end.
2. Install a small gate in an existing fence. The gate should match the fence as closely as possible so it isn't noticeable from the outside. The gate needs to swing inward and to have a latch and lock on the inside only.
We have a 2nd floor balcony that currently sags / is unstable and needs fixing. We would like to:

Deck is currently 6'x12' feet and is less then 4' off the ground attached to the house and has two cement piers that are 4' from the wall and 6' apart. Deck needs to be demolished but I am pretty sure the piers are still in good shape.
I would like to extend it out to 12'x12' and add
Railing 1 side 36" and down the outside of the stairs 2 sides
Stairs need to be closed in with cap
Please price in:
Around 16*16 deck. Ground level. With railings. Looking for something basic but very well constructed. Posts need to be in the ground at a minimum of 4 feet.
When submitting your bid, please add details of the material you will use and how many posts you will make. Any additional details that can highlight the construction quality of the deck is also appreciated.
Looking to get someone to build a deck and do a bit of landscaping. The backyard measures 36x25 and hasn't been maintained much. We'd like to have this replaced with:
- deck spanning most of the backyard
- small pathway on one side of backyard for entry
- small lilac plant in corner
- installation of slide for kids (if possible)
Attached is a very rough draft of what we had in mind.
We'd like to get this done this spring/summer. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Century old home in Centretown with aluminum siding clad extension on two floors and unfinished stone/concrete basement. Water damage/leak based on home inspection. The possible place of leak/damage is between the old brick house and new extension with bricks and aluminium/metal cladding in-between.
Stone/concrete basement shows serious signs of water damage (efflorescence and moisture). First floor, wall and window frame are wet and hardwood floor adjoining back wall also wet and with signs of discolouration from water damage. Suspect mold etc. possible once the first floor wall is opened up.
Second floor over leaking room has a small open wood deck area adjacent to original old brick house and new addition. Visual and machine show no sign of water inside the house on second floor.
Pictures are available. Would like cost estimate and instructions to remedy the water leakage/damage.
Conditional offer to purchase the house expires on June 4, 2014. Closing on August 30, 2014.
We have a deck above our garage and the roof in the garage leaks and much of the wood seems to be rotted. The side walls are cinder block with tar mopped plywood roof under the deck. It seems that drainage is a problem as the water does not drain completely (it would just sit under the deck). We are looking to get this done quick and have already removed the deck. Only the roof needs to be completely removed and rebuilt. The size of the roof is 16 by 20 feet. We think that someone would need to come in to provide an accurate estimate.
single level deck
approx 18' wide x 11' long
approx 4' off the ground
attached to house
will require a step from the house down onto the deck
one set of stairs, 5-6
pressure treated lumber
pergola covering entire deck
privacy lattice (with the pergola option)
there is an existing deck, it will be removed and clear by me
looking for one quote on just the deck, and one with deck/pergola combo
We are looking to tear down and rebuild our front porch. We live in an old home (over 100 years old). The front porch is currently wooden and in okay condition; but has some rot and requires serious attention. It is a two-level porch with side stairs (to driveway) on lower level and a covered, half-deck upper level. The upper roof is peaked. We would like to tear down the current structure and will likely also need to re-evaluate the finish on the home: it is currently stucco and would either need to be repainted or potentially redone with siding or other options.
We are considering various options for remodelling the deck and will be seeking design/architectural advice. Options include a two-level deck with fully open (no roof) upper deck that extends the full surface of the home (as lower deck); moving stairs to extend from doorway at front of house; etc, etc.
Cost is an issueas we explore the options. Our main objective is to build something safe, attractive, good quality and within a reasonable budget given the extensive nature of the work.
We look forward to your proposal; or additional information so that we can meet to discuss the options further.
Thanks in advance.
I live in a 15 year old stacked townhome condo unit (freehold) that has 2 balconies. These balconies are directly above my neighbour's unit and are both leaking into her home. These balconies/flat roofs have been repaired a number of times and continue to cause issues. I am not sure if the problems are being caused by one or both balconies or if it is in fact the balconies themselves and not the patio doors.
This job requires immediate attention has to be started as soon as possible. My neighbour is currently renting out her unit to another family and they have buckets set up to collect the water. It has been raining for days. The drywall is soaked through and I fear will fall right off. One of the water damage areas is in her childrens bedroom.
I have two projects that I would like to get an estimate on:
Project 1: I would like to replace the flooring in the main entrance, kitchen and powder room on the first floor. The main entrance is currently ceramic and I would like to replace it with Ceramic - area is ~100 sq. ft.. The Kitchen is currently laminate - would like to replace it with ceramic- area is ~ 150 sq. ft. The powder room is currently laminate - would like to put ceramic - area is ~ 25 sq. ft.
Project 2: I would like to build a square deck 12' x 12' in the back with standard railings and steps to the yard. Pressure Treated wood or Cedar is preferred.
Our home was originally built in late 1800s. Our covered front porch, 17'x5', needs major repairs.
The wood floor boards and the supports need to be replaced. The stairs, with 4 risers, and railings need to be replaced. The porch roof doesnt need work. We are interested in having the work done before the snow arrives.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Our front porch is concrete and currently is not attached to our home. It needs to be replaced it's very old and not attractive. It would just be used as steps to the main entrance not for sitting.
Our deck needs to be redone. We might want a two level. We also need a fence.
The house is around 70 years old.
Small garage (one car) and small back porch - approx 9m2 - roofed and closed in.
Front left corner of garage is sinking - require new concrete in that corner.
Garage doors possibly will require repair following repair of corner.
Porch stairs rotting - require new stairs.
Wooden siding on garage and porch - some rotting boards to be replaced.
Paint Porch and garage following completion of repairs.
House and garage approximately 80 years old.
I live in a townhouse. My current deck is the one that the builder installed. It is warped and small. I have a small backyard, so I am looking to maximize my space in order to actually enjoy my backyard. Currently it is just overrun with weeds and I can't seem to get rid of. I am looking for a multi-level deck that will allow for some privacy from the neighbours. I would also like something that is low maintenance.
Two level deck (approx 50 sq ft for upper & 300 sq ft for lower). I have a draft plan available. Interested to use preserved wood for support and preferably white cedar for rest of project. The deck is a semi-circle and stairs are curved.
I'm interested to work with a skilled and reputable contractor who would be flexible and willing to use my labour to help with the project. Quality work is important to me.
I would like to build a new single-level 12'x12' Deck using pressure treated wood. The deck should be a simple design, square with standard height railings and a few standard steps leading to the yard located at the end or middle of the deck (note: steps are not the entire length of the deck). The height from the ground to the patio door is 39".
If you have an further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Original concrete steps are being removed. Parging behind steps are being repaired by a foundation repair contractor who will also be doing foundation repairs at the same time. I would like an estimate for a front porch about 8'x8' made with wood with handrails and steps with handrails all built to code at the very least. I believe porch would require 1 ledger board mounted with spacers on concrete foundation wall under front door and 2 supporting posts at the front of the porch. Foundation contractors have not given me an exact starting date. I have already checked the cost of the material at Home Depot at between $500.00 to $600.00 tax included. I figure that the job should take no longer than 2 days at the most to complete. My budget based on all of this is $3000.00 for labor and materials and taxes. There may be the possibility of a permit requirement because the porch is nearly 2 ft above the ground.
I have two large cages on my property that I want taken down and removed. There is a concrete (patio stones) pad under the largest cage, and I would like a gazebo built on it. I would like an estimate for taking down and removing all the cage materials, and for the construction of a gazebo.
I would also like to add a 4-season room where my deck is currently situated. The deck is made of composite materials, is not particularly well built, especially the steps, so it would probably have to be removed, and the new room created from scratch -- but I'm not sure about that and need expert advice. Since the composite materials were very expensive, I'm wondering if they could be salvaged and used to build a smaller deck adjacent to the room addition I mentioned above.
The deck is on the back of the house. Contractors may have some problems bringing in materials, etc., because access to the back of my property is either through the attached garage, or via a rather narrow sidewalk down the side of the garage. I have good neighbours on both sides, and I'm sure either of them would co-operate in bringing materials via their properties, if necessary.
I would appreciate getting an estimate on labour and supplies for constructing a room, and for the addition of another deck.
