I am looking for an experienced general contractor to manage this complete renovation project. Each unit is 1250 sq. ft.
Project will begin in a couple of weeks. If you have the experience and not affraid of a challenge ... please contact me,
You will come see the property and we'll meet.
It's an easy 6-8 full months of work,
I have a semi residential/commercial property in Duluth East ( H2W-1H4). After a disaster tenant I have to renovate one apartment (700/750sf). The kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and floors must be redone. This is a place I rent not, to live in it. Look, durability, functionality and a friendly budget is important to me at this time since I also have to do the roof, Parking paving and back yard fencing this year. Looking forward to hear from you.
I have come up w/ your company information through Internet and I thought you might be helpful answering few questions of mine which can potentially turn into a little project. I am assuming you accept custom projects and provide estimations. Hence what I have in mind is also attached as a PDF doc. to this e-mail. Though this rough copy which requires touch-ups (i.e. material, size etc.); I believe shape of the building and the approximate sizes would give you an idea. A few major changes between what's been provided versus what I am asking are obviously the material of the house; Rather than steel, I am hoping to use concrete or brick on a solid foundation, and also the dimensions. Although I am not expecting a huge 2 storey house, having a little more space than seen in the pictures wouldn't harm. I understand there may be certain things which may end-up quite costly (a steep roof etc.) if this is the case please feel free to advise / suggest adjustments for cost effectiveness. Furthermore, what I need is a shell of a house which includes structure, foundation, plumbing, electricity (heating) € interior is something I should be taking care of afterwards. Please feel free to provide your feedback. I appreciate taking your time reading this e-mail and calculating some approximates for me. Looking forward to hearing back from you soon €

The area the triplex is situated is a working-class neighborhood. Rental costs are generally inexpensive. Material selection should be based with that in mind.
The following is a description of the work required:
1. The apartment is about 700 square feet with one bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen and entrance and corridor area. It’s in the 5th floor in a building close to St. Mathieu St. and Rene Levesque interaction.
2. Demolition of existing bathroom including all tiles and wallboard as well as tub, toilet and sink and all faucets and removal from the building.
3. Demolition of all kitchen cabinets and counters and removal from the building.
4. Demolition and removal from the building of existing carpet flooring in the bedroom and living room and ceramic tiles at the entrance and corridor in front of the kitchen and bathroom. Replace the above flooring with laminate floor (Home Depot price for a specific laminate flooring $3/sq.ft). Bathroom and kitchen flooring will be separately mentioned.
5. Replace interior doors of bathroom, storage room and double slide doors of closet.
6. New tiles in the bathroom on the floor as well as 3 walls around the new shower.
7. The bathroom will have a new bathtub and a new shower control valve and hand held shower sprayer including all plumbing and electrical works. A new toilet, vanity, faucets, a storage cabinet in the corner and all bathroom accessories will be chosen by client.
8. All kitchen cabinets need to be replaced i. Stainless steel sink and kitchen faucet will be chosen by Client. All appliances will be chosen by client.
9. Plaster and paint will be required for the whole apartment. Ceiling is popcorn type that will need to be replaced by flat surface.
The total Square footage of the space that i am currently looking to renovate is approximately 40 feet long by 9 feet wide. About 360 square feet total area. The space as it is today has already been demolished by removing the old bathroom, all walls and the ceiling sheet rock. The floors are cement with a subfloor on 3/4 of the space at the moment. I am looking to do a full remodel of this space starting with a subfloor option of finishing in wood prior to applying tile, sandcoat or self levelling cement in order to have an even/durable surface prior to puttin up the walls and tiling the space. then the plumbing required will be to add the piping for at least 2 additional drains and the bathroom/kitchen rough in. Electrical is basic additions of plugs in the created 3 room space. Will also need sheet rock applied to all the walls and the currently exposed ceiling and the new walls needed will be a total of 2 divider walls, 3 doorways and the closing of the bathroom space on 3 sides, insertion of insulation in the ceilings, and a vapour barier on the one outside wall the length of the space (3/4 covered already. 1/4 still to do).
Then the main space that i want to ensure is done correctly will be a 3 by 5 foot tiled steam shower that i would like installed in the new bathroom space as well.
The structure is a semi detached duplex in Lasalle Quebec.
I would like to find someone that is very versatile and fairly priced as once this innitial project is completed, i have other work required. (Garage leveling and tiling, another small bathroom with plumbing to make and general plumbing work for a new appartment being fully remodelled in the adjacent building)
The galleries need to be repaired, required by our insurance company. Whether the galleries need to be repaired or completely replaced is in question.
The galleries are 5x12 feet. The structure is currently of wood. The fire escape stairway is of metal.
If the entire galleries have to be replaced, the question remains whether the new frame should be made of wood or metal. If the structure will be made of metal, zoning requires that the floor of the galleries be made of sheet metal or cement. If the structure will be made of wood, then the floor can remain wood as well.(???!!!, leave that to zoning specialists).
I need a professional to tell me whether we should repair or replace, and with which material.
I would need to install a third floor balcony on a rental property (fiber glass piece ordered and available, wooden guard rails to be provided and installed). Some of the wood on the balcony structure needs replacing.
At the same time, I would need to install an emergency exit staircase (the piece is available) on the 3rd floor, and generally repair the existing wrought iron structure of the emergency exit.
The building is a 3 storey apartment building, with a 2-level balcony/fire escape. Part of the balcony on both levels needs work, so we need to see if it's better to do patch-up repairs or a reconstruction is required. We have some time available to show the balconies for an estimate, to see what the suggestion for work would be.

After a flood in July, we need to have our basement redone. There was about 6 inches of water that filled the basement. The space is about 500 square feet, and the current floor is laminate.
The floor and subfloor will need to be removed, and a new floor / subfloor installed. There is also damage to the walls, so they would need to be replaced 18-24 inches up as well.
Please contact me to set up a visit, we need to get moving on this asap. This is an insurance job.
House is 120 years old. Basement is 500 square feet. Strictly speaking the ceiling is too low for it to be called a basement, but I can stand up in it and I am over six feet tall. The foundations of the house are stone, which needs cleaning, repairing and repointing. A new brick wall is needed to replace the crumbling old wall that adjoins the neighbour's property. The chimney needs repointing. A new floor is needed. All cables and pipes will have to be adjusted to run along the ceiling, and then concealed by gyproc. New electric and lighting circuits required. Full-spectrum lighting to be installed. A toilet and shower to be installed.
Renovation of the entrance to the basement and a new staircase required. Some time in the past, before I owned the house (we bought it 25 years ago), two of the beams supporting the floor above were compromised by holes for pipes. In each location a post has been inserted to support the floor above. I would like these posts removed and beams reinforced. All nails and screws to be removed from exposed wood. Neighbouring wall (opposite new brick wall) to be repainted. Some insulation to be installed on exterior walls. Cleaning and removal of all debris and unwanted material.
Other requirements (minor) to be discussed with contractor.
I would like two things...
#1. I am planning on moving and would like to update my bathroom and kitchen counter before I put my house on the market. The bathroom is small 63 1/2 inches x 58 inches with a shower built into the back wall measuring 32" x 31" x 81". There is a toilette and a vanity. I would like to replace all the tile, lay base boards, put in a pedestal sink, new fixtures on the sink and in the shower and new lighting on both sides of the mirror (the lighting is currently above the mirror and on the ceiling of the bathroom and a third light on the ceiling of the shower. I would also like to paint the walls.
Along with this I would like to replace the kitchen counter with butcher block and marble, as well as a bar top attached to the other side of the cabinets, the space that I would like to have marble on measures 91" x 14" x 7" x 91" and 82" x 24" and the space for the butcher block measures 89" x 24"
#2. I would like to move into an older building, living in Montreal there are so many beautiful older buildings. I would like to move into one that may have some renovation possibilities, that being said I would like to hire a structural engineer who can evaluate the entire property as well as look at my plans for renovation and tell me if it will be possible with the current structure of the building or will I have to reinforce everything...
Any help would be greatly greatly greatly greatly appreciated!!!!
Want to tear down and close up existing bathroom (it's 'inside' the kitchen area today). This will free up space to have a larger kitchen.
I want the new bathroom to be in the room next to the kitchen, approx 3 meters diagonally from where the 'old bathroom' is at the moment. The hot water tank is directly under the kitchen, so existing plumbing already goes through the floor from basement to ground floor (kitchen). However, I'm not sure if we can re-plum across floor utilizing existing piping, or if new holes should be drilled through the floor in the new bathroom location.
The house is from 1921. Brick walls. Still old concrete basement floors and beams in structure. Some old electric wiring in basement.
Please contact me by text message or email if you would be interested in quoting on this bathroom renovation/relocation project!!
I need help with plumbing and installation of new toilet bowl, sink, vanity, shower, heated floors, lighting. Please include which part of this you have expertise and which part you would subcontract.
Hi. we have a small bathroom we want to make it bigger by using the adjoining closet we want a tile shower floor included we would by the doors glass 90degree doors and we want to move the tub putting a stand alone tub that means extending the drain for shower and tub new pocket lighting tiles on floor and along half wall
I am located in Westmount. The building is 100 years old but completely renovated in 1980s. I have a 4 piece ensuite bathroom, 2.4m by 2.4m. It has a very small plastic shower stall and a jet tub. Everything works fine and there are no issues but the functionality of the space is not good. I have a sliding door from bedroom to the bathroom so the entire space in the bathroom is used.
I want to remove the tub and the shower and put a bigger tiled shower with jet system. I may want to move the toilet also, it depends on the budget. I would need a custom closet/laundry space and other fixtures and vanity. Since the floor will be removed I may put a heated floor also depending on the budget. My budget is $10,000 at most.
Please let me know if you need other information before seeing the space.
Thanks you for your response.
We are planning a full bathroom renovation in our 100+ year old home. The bathroom is approximately 10' X 10' and we want to remove interior walls to add insulation and vapour barrier. We have purchased a new vanity, toilet and shower kit - bathtub still needs to be purchased. These items need to be installed. Most plumbing will stay in the same location. A bathroom fan must be installed and vented to the exterior (no exterior vent exists right now). Flooring is currently hardwood and we intend to install new hardwood flooring (already purchased). The shower and tub surround will be tiled (unless we select a free-standing tub).. New lighting will be required. We can do some demolition ourselves. We have a hot water radiator which we want to replace with a more streamlined and wall mounted Runtal hot water radiator (if possible).
This is an old home so there may be some surprises when the walls are opened up. We would prefer a contractor who has experience with working on older homes. If you can give us a rough estimate of cost that would be helpful. We are located in Montreal, QC.
