To add - the water heater and furnace are 3 feet off the basement wall. I would like to move them into them against the wall and finish the basement.

New York City contractors MUST be licensed and insured. They are VERY expensive so you need to get estimates from several of them. If you hire unlicensed and uninsured contractors, New York City will not pursue a case if they do any damage or cause any injury.

It's the law!

Hello Joey,

I am Robert Canecchio Sr, Co-Owner of Canco Renovators & Remodelers LLC, We are Licensed and Insured Home Improvemnt Contractors in NY & NJ, our office is located in Staten Island, We have been in Business here since 1982

As to building Houses/Homes we have put together many and as to Roof raisers & Additions we have put together over 90 projects in that area....

The pricing varies depending on the Homeowners Designs, What the Budget is, Shared Project, or depends on how much work is given to the Contractor, Best advice here is to get up to 4-6 Contractors, get a Question Book Ready, ask what you need to ask, Get their estimates, Check their Profiles and talk with the DOB....

Good Luck in your Home Building project

This depends on your area of expertise, We suggest many ways, but the best advice is to get an Architect, talk with that Architect about all legalities, Permits and Structures, After that then call up to about 4-5 Contractors who Specialize in Deck Building

Good Luck in your deck Building project

It is best to talk with a Contractor who Specializes in these Projects, and also works with the Homeowners to save them money and become a part of the project up to a certain extent

Good Luck in your home remodeling project

Dear GP,

I today's tough economy any help can significantly improve and reinvigorate a business. I feel for you but I currently do not know anyone personally. You may also wan to contact you local Small Business Administration representative to inquire about special grants for you type of business.

There is a television show, that I have noticed that helps local new yorkers, I am a regular viewer of this program. I have noticed that they help mostly homeowners with small home projects. But I think you should contact them.

Give it a shot. You never know. Click on the rescue me tab. Good luck.
