I own a 45-year-old detached back split home. Currently, the ventilation of the roof is very poor and I have mold underneath the sheathing. I would need to remove all shingles, remove all plywood on the top floor and perimeter plywood on the lower floor (to see if mold present), remove old insulation or add more blown in cellulose.
I would need proper vents instated such as ventilation max brand, connect the washroom and kitchen hood fan to vent outside the roof. I would also need air baffles installed throughout the perimeter of the roof to allow fresh air intake. I would feel more confident an experienced licensed carpenter perform the plywood and roofing materials installation as per code to avoid warping and damage from high-velocity winds. I would also prefer shingles be installed and nailed for high-velocity winds. I need someone that has a proven track record with references and knowledge of building science.
- My bathroom is approx. 6.5' x 6.5'
- Looking to do a full gut (new bath, floor, vanity etc...)
- Not looking to move any plumbing points
As an electrical contractor, I am aware of the quality difference between hiring someone for a particular task, which brings me to your department.
Looking to open up a wall in my kitchen to give a more open look. I'm assuming it is a load bearing wall so I understand additional supporting would be required. The wall to be partially removed would be about 8ft wide and 5ft tall almost to create a window to have a makeshift island. The rafters run perpendicular to this wall and the entire wall is about 12ft wide.
2500 sq feet house need to be painted
Build 300 sq ft composite deck (with 3 sets of 2-step stairs - led lights on risers of stairs)
Railing all around the deck.
Built in kitchen (bbq, sink, etc not included - only the structure)
Pergola (I have one in mind that is reasonably simple to make out of lumber).
Stone slabs on ground (about 100 sq ft)
Composite steps around a jacuzzi with privacy fence corner.
We require two quotes:
1) Build a 230 square foot 3rd floor deck on top of second story structure, in basic treated wood
2) Two parts to this submission :
-Build temporary support structure for current 2nd and 3rd floor decks while 1st floor demolishes back extension.
-Build final permanent support structure for 2nd and 3rd floor decks which allows space underneath for 1st floor to rebuild in future.
In the quote, we will need to know if any permits or plans from engineers or architects will be required.

My husband and I are looking to get a quote on re-flooring our condo. Here's the info:
It's a 993 square foot condo. It's an open-plan kitchen/living/dining space with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a den. Floorplan is attached.
We don't need the bathrooms done - the tile is ok in there. But we'd be looking to do hardwood throughout the space, and then a tile that looks like hardwood in the kitchen and potentially foyer area. The existing flooring would need to be removed.
We'd be looking to get this project completed before moving into the space, so there would be no furniture to move - the condo would be empty.
I'm interested in a quote, and also learning about the timing required. Ideally, we'd be looking to get this done starting April 25.
I would like to redo the sidings of my house along with reinsulating the outside portion below the sidings. Looking to use either vinyl or canexel. The house has 2 floors and both sides are in aluminium sidings. While doing the siding, I would need a solarium to be demolished as well.
