I recently got a quote for all new windows in my Parkmont, Fremont home. I understand Andersen is a good brand, but does $40k sound right?
Hi,

Are they standard or custom-sized windows? Any job of that size I would recommend at least 3 bids.

Kind regards,

Arpad

How much does it cost to knock down a coat closet that has a light switch on the outer wall to expand the size of a kitchen?
There is really no way to guess or estimate this price way too many variables. Best bet is to have several local trades quote your prices.

I have a single family house. It has 3 bedrooms and one full bath. I would like to add a detached bathroom and need an estimate how much will it cost?
Just a suggestion Kristine...I would call some general contractors in your community to come to the house and give you bids...that will probably offer the best information.
