I have a finished basement window, in a new home, 3 years, that needs to be replaced. The window slides, it is about 2 feet wide near the top of the wall. It is one of those standard basement windows. I have tried weather stripping, as well as insulation foam, and the window is not sealed and does not close FULLY. There is somehow enough opening, even with it locked for bugs and worms to find their way into the basement. As a neighbour has had the same kind of issues with closing or sealing their windows, it is obvious that the quality of the windows used in these new homes is a little lacking. I am looking to replace the window with either a solid piece of glass window, ideally, that is completely sealed from the outside elements and mother nature.
We have an enclosed brick porch with an opening for two windows and a door. The opening for
the windows are approximately 25" x 65" and the opening for the door is approximately 38" x 103".
We plan to make this enclosed area a mud room, so enery savings products are not important.
However, since this is the front of the house, it should look nice.
The frames for the windows and door will have to be attached to brick.
Find below the present doors dimensions. We would like to keep the frames. There is sometines some space between the door and the floor (1,5''), but 80'' would be to long.
5 29''7/8 x 77,5 '' doors (among which 1 French door)
2 23''7/8 X 77,5'' doors
1 32'' x 77,5'' with "air vent"
1 sliding door for a 32''7/8 x 78''5/16 opening
We would like something with wood but don't have so much money to spend on it.
We thought at hollow core doors but we don't seem able to find anything of that type that is not completely smooth and with a cheap look (although my parents have hollow cores doors that looks great because they have some decorations).
So perhaps the best thing for us would be solid pine wood doors? We don't like primed doors at all. If you want to bid on our project, would you please give us an idea on what it would cost in your first mail?
We have a large (6' x 5') front living room window that has 3 panes total. The window is fixed and does not open. The widow frames and panes are wood. When we purchased the house we had it inspected and it was suggested that we have flashing installed over top of the wood to preserve it. We're looking for someone who's experienced in putting up flashing and is willing to take on this job.
Thanks so much!
We are looking for someone to help with three main projects at our house:
1. to replace and repair rotting wood around the chimney (outside)
2. to replace a patio door at the back of the house...including removing the rotting wood from the sill and replacing it.
3. Painting exterior wood surfaces, and painting and caulking window trim
I need a ballpark price for the installation of a new basement window that meets egress requirements. Date would be after Nov 15th and before the end of november. Standard poured concrete foundation, house built in 2007, unfinished basement, joists perpendicular to wall. No issues with additional window area as side of house faces a fence next to a street.
I'm looking for someone to build me a door that will fit on a sliding track.
I want the door to have a polished aluminum patchwork finish. See the image attached. I'm fine with screws (as in the image) or finishing nails.
I do not have the door but happy with either an old door or a panel built out of something inexpensive. I have the track and rails and will handle the install myself.
All materials for the door would have to be purchased by you and included in the price.
I only need the front along with the two vertical sides covered.
The door should be 32" x 73 3/4"
45 yr old house. In master bdrm and guest bdrm each closet needs to be widened. Currently each closet is approx 87" wide but opening only 36" wide. We want to double the opening and install 2 folding doors for each closet instead of current 1. Interior of closet approx 90" tall, but 79" tall at opening. Folding doors are 77" by 34". Floor is hardwood.
I have a side door in my kitchen that is no longer necessary (addition on the back with a second exit has been added). I need the door removed, reframed for a window, installation of the window, then re-doing the aluminum siding around the door. The area that will need new siding would probably be about 6' x 12' (minus the window dimensions).
We bought a house which has a vestibule with a set of second doors inside the house. The doors is a pair of French doors above which there is a semi-circular window (not a perfect semi-circle).
We would like to replace the semi-circular window because it has a grid work (to emulate the French doors) which has been really badly painted and it does work as it creates an unnecessary visual obstacle. We would prefer a plain window. The current window seems to be a mix of three parts of an older window (the reflection on the window is wavy like old glass). The frame is in white painted wood (and the centre part is missing) and it measures approximately 5 feet by 31 inches. We do not want to replace the entire window frame but only the interior part holding the window along with the glass and we would prefer a white wooded inside frame if at all possible.
We can discuss budget further - it is a bit difficult to cost this project since it is an unusual one. We indicated what we think this project should roughly cost.
Thank you very much,
We are replacing the front door in our 100 year old brick home. We've learned that with old homes, nothing is ever as simple as you'd like. So here's what we plan to do, and what the project may evolve to.
At it's simplest, we have purchased a new door that is slightly smaller than the frame and would like to install it. We also need to replace a window insert above the door, which we haven't ordered/ purchased yet.
As far as things that may complicate the job:
The frame needs looking at - do we need to replace it, or can we just add a thin strip of wood to it to make the new door fit? The frame has been painted over many times and doesn't look nice. If we don't replace it completely, we'll want to strip and paint it, refresh the detailing and recaulk it.
Please provide a quote that includes a per hour labour fee, and two time estimates - one for working with the existing door frame and one for replacing the door frame.
Replacing two outside doors
To remove and dispose two wood and screen doors and install two steel doors with handle set, dead bolts. For both locations, replacing interior moldings, brick molding, caulk the seal and use 22 gauge aluminum flashing as capping around the doors.
The client will purchase the 34RHHx82.5x7.7.25 and 32RHH x8.5x7.25 steel doors from a local building supplier and the contractor will need to pick them up at the building supplier.
I am looking for a sliding door. The finish opening size is 90"H x 49 1/2"W. The door will be less then 90" because of the track and 52" W for the overlap. With finish on both sides. I need the door to be hanging from the ceiling with no tracks on the floor.
It is in the basement and walls and ceiling are finish.
We need to add two dormers to our upper story (1-1/2 story home). Right now there are three bedrooms. One bedroom doesn't have an egress window (just a skylight). We would like to add a dormer/window to that room in order to have another point of escape and also to bring in more light. Across the hall, we would like to add another dormer for either a powder room or a full bathroom -- probably about 6x6 with a window. We would want both dormers to be the same size so that it's balanced visually on the outside of the house. The structural engineer has been in and says it can be done (hasn't issued the report, yet). We would only need the framing/roofing done and the window installation, as we'll be responsible for all the interior work (we have people to do the plumbing and electrical and we will do all of the interior finishes). We haven't made the final decision to go ahead on this project, yet, as we've never costed out dormers before (usually we do all the renovation work ourselves -- but this is beyond us!). We're trying to decide whether or not to renovate or if we should just sell. We would really appreciate getting some quotes on this (understanding that it's impossible to give an accurate quote unless you actually see the property). Thanks!
I have 6 windows and 2 doors which were installed by a contractor who never came back to finish the exterior (parging, insulation, caulking, flashing etc.). 2 windows are mid-size basement windows which are completely unfinished, 3 are small basement windows which are partially finished and 1 is a medium-large garage window and also not finished. The two doors are normal, single exterior doors.
I'd like this done very soon, hopefully this week.
In our 1950's bungalow, we are looking to replace a row of 3 windows that only start at eye-level with a large window and a patio door leading out onto a small deck.
Creating the opening for the larger window and door will involve cutting through stone as the exterior wall is clad with natural stone up to half height (finished by a thick stone ledge running around the house)
The deck will be a straightforward rectangle of about 7x12 feet, no steps. I'm thinking of pressure-treated wood for the decking and a white (composite?) railing.
The site is in our front yard and fairly accessible.

My house is a semi-detached in downtown Ottawa, approx 100 years old. I want to replace the siding on one wall of the house, and improve the insulation of that wall at the same time. Currently there is some sort of shingling on the wall. The wall is fairly close to the neighbouring house. I also want to replace most of the windows in the house. Some are very old, others are newer (25 years maybe) and the seals have gone. 7-10 windows total, and possibly a patio door as well.
I am really hoping to complete this project in time for the Home Reno Tax credit (as I'm sure many other people are!)
Looking for an experience contractor that has a truck to carry windows. To do all our windows, Doors and thermo glass installs on an ongoing basis. Currently our company has dealers across Canada and the US and we decided to launch corporate operations nationwide. Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa are the first cities that we are covering.
The front door of our home is made of solid wood and seems to expand and contract with the weather. It is very difficult to open when the weather is too humid, wet or cold. We are looking for someone to help us find a solution that allows us to keep our beautiful front door but actually be able to use it. It may just be a matter of sanding it down and refinishing it to prevent it from absorbing moisture.
Our home is a heritage home and the door is quite new (within the last 5 years) so we are not looking to replace it.
We are looking for the work to be done as soon as possible. Please email if you are interested in this work. We are happy to provide additional details as needed to receive a quote.
Thanks in advance!
