I currently have an older 5/4 x 4" tongue and groove pine front balcony on the lower half of a duplex. The balcony is approx. 3' high and is 6' x 20' with two 4' sets of stairs (3 steps) and aluminum skirting.
I would like to have the decking and stairs replaced (wood or composite). Some of the supporting framework boards are in poor condition and would have to be replaced and some post work would also have to be done.
I need a wood deck floor built for a balcony. It is 8x11. I’d like it built in two sections so that I can lift up and clean underneath from time to time. It will be on a concrete surface and will have outdoor furniture top. I want a quality deck preferably with wood lumber. I would be happy to buy the lumber or to have the contractor buy the lumber as part of the quote. Ideally, the lumber is 11 feet long boards but flexible. It would require the building and assembly of the decking floor.

I'm looking for an inexpensive linoleum in a kitchen that is about 12' x 10'6" and a connected back entryway about 7' x 3'2". I have pulled up an old layer of the stick on lino tiles and cleaned up the adhesive as best I can using acetone. What's left is the old original lino, and I'd like the new flooring to just go on top of that.
