We need 3 balconies replaced (1st, 2nd, and 3rd floors) on an apartment building in Waterloo. The building was built in the late 1950s and the balconies may be the originals. The current balconies are concrete on wood. We need the concrete removed and replaced with treated wood or a composite. There is a steel support post running up the outside corner of the balconies which may also have to be replaced, as well as the concrete pier to which it's anchored. We have a preliminary structural engineer's report with photographs.

We are in need of finishing our renovation project quickly. We need to finish the following;

New doors and Trim in Basement
Painting entire basement

We have a 1500 sq foot house and have 3 growing boys. We need an extra bedroom and want to finish our basement. We would like to find out if we have enough room to put a master bedroom in the attic (we would need to add stairs) and reconfigure the 2nd floor to make three similar sized bedrooms and combine two small bathrooms into one. We also want to finish the basement and install lockers and shelving in our garage. The house is 4 years old.
We are knocking down our existing bungalow and rebuilding a 2 storey, 3 bedroom and 2.5 bathroom house. The house will be approx 1800 sq feet (900 each floor). There are 9 ft ceinings on the first floor and 8 ft on the second. Small foundation additions (no basement) of approx 9by9 feet and 4.5by8.5 feet are required. The electrical will need to be completely redone with pot lights in living room and kitchen. The majority of the plumbing will also need to be redone as there will be an additional 2 full bathrooms. Completely new duct work will be required for furnace and AC. The entire house as well as a 12*24 section of the basement will need to be drywalled. The flooring will consist of hardwood throughout with the exception of the foyer, bathrooms and kitchen which will be tiled with either ceramic or travertine. We have completed the preliminary floor plans and the construction plans are expected to be done in 2-3 weeks. The project is expected to start in the early fall with the framing, siding, windows, doors and roofing being completed by a family member.
There's a leak coming from the ceiling in the middle of my basement that needs attention ASAP.
Unfortunately, I'm out of town for the week but my tenants will be around to let you in. The information about it that I have is minimal. All I really know is that there's water dripping from the ceiling to the carpet.

1. earth around foundation needs to be looked at - water seeping in at front of house and rear (foundation is sound, but may need waterproofing)
2. shingling and guttering on roof needs replacing - possibly facia included
3. walkup - at back of house - leaks at joining to house
4. front porches (concrete) needs replacing and upgrading - one is over the
1. basement has been renovated
2. main floor - renovation - removing current walls, upgrade electrical and plumbing, change walls and rebuilding new interior walls and floors - plumbing stack stays in same place but kitchen is to go at back of house instead of front
3. future - want sun room out back from kitchen - therefore need door out back
4. move staircase from front of house to back of house going up from new kitchen
5. second floor - take two bedrooms upstairs and convert to master bedroom with ensuite bath
Remove the carpets (3 rooms and hallway) and vinyl kitchen floor and baseboards from all the rooms. This unit its about 1000 square feet. Remove the cabinets from the kitchen that I plan to replace with Ikea product.
These cabinets need to be hung properly, a countertop has to be installed. A new sink will also be added.
A laminate/wood floor is to be put in throughout, (1000 sq. feet) and baseboards, that are first to be painted by painter and when put in, a second coat will be added.
New toilet is to be installed. Also, new fan in bathroom.
There are electrical fixtures to be replaced, and electric outlet covers replaced.
My fiance and I recently purchased a house in Waterloo and need a few renos done before we move in. We get possession of the house July 28th and would hope to move in during the last week of August.
In summary, the changes we would like to make are:
- Create an opening in the wall between the kitchen and living room (an opening had previously existed there and the current owners closed it)
- Hang a light fixture in the dining area (will require wiring likely through the attic)
- Finish a bedroom in a basement – needs a wall with a door created around a furnace as well as to create a bulk head around the furnace piping.
- Create 2 additional walls, one with a door (would include moving some wiring for a light switch) to create another bedroom in the basement.
- Extend the closet in the master bedroom
My house is a 1500 sq ft, 2 year old town home. The stairs (carpeted) leading to the upper level squeak. The underneath of the staircase can be accessed from the basement. The squeaking usually starts during the colder months and then stops when the weather gets warm.
I need a professional to diagnose the cause of the squeaking and fix it completely. I live in Waterloo, Ontario.
We would like to add stairs to access our attic and finish the attic space (approx. 650 sqft). The house is about 9 years old, and the attic is quite large with a high ceiling at the centre. It's currently just insulation with access from a bedroom closet. We believe it would be possible to put stairs from our great room to provide access. The floor would likely need to be properly reinforced for occupation. Ideally we would finish the space with a small 3 piece bathroom and one large studio with skylights. We are hoping you might be willing to take a look and provide a basic quote so that we can budget for this renovation. Thanks for your time.
We have a completed deck at the front of our house accessing the downstairs level, it's finished with treated lumber. During the completion our contractor took ill and we now would like to complet the project with a small stairs up the side of the house. The stairs would have 6-7 steps and be finished in treaded lumber.
Approximate size would be 8 feet X 3 feet with a hand rail on the house wall. We would like this completed in the Spring or sooner if weather permits.
I have a small wall dividing my kitchen from my hall that I want removed. It is only about 5 ft wide and I don't believe it's a supporting wall (I would need to check for sure). There is a outlet, light switch, floor vent, central vac jook up and door bell that will need to be moved out of that wall. We are looking to sell so we don't want to spend too much for this mini reno.
