One thing that will definitely vary for you is who you end up hiring. Each plumber will probably have a different price for this service. It might be a good idea to get a quote from a few options that you have, just so you can try to narrow down some options. I would also suggest that you look into both of these options for plumbing, and possibly do some research on what is more durable and long lasting! http://www.rameyplumbing.com... more
You may have to look into a few different contractors for those various task. Contractors usually just specialize in one of those areas. I suggest reading a few online reviews for contractors in your area. That is usually a good way to narrow down the search. http://www.cascobayroofing.com... more
There are definitely some parts of the year when you'll get a significantly better price. I think that getting it done around the holidays will mean that the company has less jobs to do and will be able to do your work quicker and with more detail. That may not be true for all companies though. If I were you, I'd look into a variety of companies to find a few that I like, then you can talk to them to figure out when the best times to hire them are. They will have more ability than anybody else to give you that information.
A typical bungalow roof will cost you somewhere around $6500. This is without the garage or any plywood that may have to be replaced under the old shingles. As far as dormers, you can factor anywhere from $10,000-$12,000 per side, depending on what kind of siding you choose for the outside, and the pitch of the roof (which will determine shingles or rubber.) This is without finishing the interior. I'm a General Contractor as well as a Realtor so if you'd like a quote for some work in the future, feel free to contact me. -M... more
I have been thinking about getting laminate flooring as well. I like them because they are easier to clean. Carpet sure does feel better on the feet though. What kind of flooring did you decide to go with? http://www.carpetsplusca.com/laminates/... more
I am glad to hear you are taking action with pest control before it actually becomes a problem. It's easier to deal with before you have an infestation as opposed to after the bugs set in. If you are looking for one in your area I would recommend asking your neighbors and friends for who they used and what they cost. Getting quotes from several different companies would be good too. Good luck! http://www.wildthingzllc.com/services/pest-prevention... more
Hi August- I see everyone else has voted to keep the 3rd bedroom. I agree. People tend to look for at least three bedrooms even if they don't need them. If you can list your home as a 3 bedroom, it will increase the visibility of the listing immensely. Home buyers will see more possibilities with a guest room, a craft room, or an office. Good luck on the renovation!!... more
I think that it definitely depends on the garage that you are looking for. There are quite a few things that will alter the cost, from who builds it to the cost of your garage door. I would just be sure that you get good prices on everything that goes into the cost. It will also depend on if you need to make it a bit bigger, so I would just find a contractor and see if you can get a quote so that you can start planning out what needs to be done! http://www.garage-door-store.com... more
I was in your situation last month and I had to hire a water proofing company to come to my house and do all of the proofing. I would get several leaks all around my basement and I was getting worried that it would get worse and cause damage to the stuff that is in the room. It is really important that your house be sealed, especially if you live in a particularly wet area. It doesn't rain all that often here, but when it does, I always am a little worried.
For accurate information check with your local municipality; if you are in the Village of Massapequa Park check with the building and zoning department, if not see link below. www.oysterbaytown.com/departments/planning.../building... more
That could be a useful innovation to make. A lot of it will ride on how much it will cost and overtime will that cost be worth it to you. People are looking to have places that could house a loved one in a slightly separate area. This might be the right time to make this change, if you have the budget for it.
I'm not sure which one is more expensive, but there are some fun things about both options. Having a heated, concrete floor can be really nice. Have you ever seen the flooring when they've ground down to expose the aggregate pebbles and then put on a clear coat? It's a really fun look. http://www.accoc.com.au/services... more
I would call around your area to see if any locals know of any. Your friends and neighbors will have the best suggestions for you as they may have had experience. You could also try checking yellow pages. Although dated, they may seem to be very resourceful. http://www.westsidesealants.com.au/caulking-gallery1... more
It really depends on whichever option you like best. Vinyl is more resistant to weather than wood is, but that doesn't mean it's always the right choice. Wood generally looks best, but I've seen some awesome looking vinyl fences before as well. There are also other options to look into. You should talk to a fencing company to see what kind of advice they can give you.
