We found a local guy who who has a business to install our kitchen cabinets, I know with most repairs or work you need workman's comp or liability insurance and some type of license but I am not sure what is required- anybody know? I am in Central Florida- THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!
I am obviously not alone. 5 years ago, we purchased sliding doors, rugs, wood floors, kitchen countertops and the refacing of the kitchen cabinets and door replacements. We are not happy with the completion of our jobs and it was not until I began reading all the negative statements about the work sub-contracted by Home Depot that I realized we made a very big mistake years ago.
We are smarter now but how come Home depot refuses to correct an obvious problem.
An installer cut a 28" by 28" whole in new drywall for a recessed medicine cabinet in my remodeled bathroom. I was unable to get the medicine cabinet and instead am getting a smaller one. If the whole that was cut out is replaced with drywall and recut for the smaller cabinet will it be noticible where the first cut was repaired?
Our installer has suggested we use approx 1-1/2 to 2inch plywood to get the granite to fit into the sides of the range. With that in mind we will have a little more than an inch of plywood/trim visable throughout. I'm not too happy about the trim showing under the peninsula. Also, the bullnose edge is only 1-1/2 and will go out about and inch from the corbels. Our other option is to use 5/8 plywood. But now we will have an inch and a half of our range sitting above the granite countertop. Please help.
P.S. I purchased prefab granite slabs, and cannot get a larger custom edge.
Because the range is about 1-1/2 inch taller than the 2cm granite countertop. Plywood will have to be placed directly on the cabinets, to raise the height of the counters to come up to the height of the range. But the bullnosed edge (off of a 2cm prefab slab) will not cover the plywood trim or stripe edges around the entire countertop. So there will be about an 1-1/2 of plywood trim/stripe edge visable. If we only use 5/8 inch plywood for support of the granite. We will not see the trim/edge, hopefully it will be completely covered by the bullnose (installer can't guarantee it). BUT now approx 1-1/2 or more of the side of the range will sit over the countertop, and the metal siding of the range will be completely visable. So its a lose lose situation. Any help would be truly appreciated. Thanks.
I need to remodel my kitchen cabinets and I need some one in the Ventura county area for a free estimate of how much to do the job,
My kitchen floor is really uneven and i am thinking of getting my kitchen done in the near future. The floor has obviously never been sorted out properly (it's an old house) and is totally uneven and bumpy all over the place and i want to put tiles down when i get the kitchen replaced.
Am i able to have the kitchen floor skimmed? If not, what do i do to even it out and prepapre it for being tiled?
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
I'm looking for a place that will give decent instructions on the wiring and technical parts of installing home theatre systems. I have already tried a few places, but it all seems to be primarily geared at sales knowledge and not actual training and information on the hook ups and settings.
I'd prefer someplace in the DFW area, but any where in the US is satisfactory.
First hand knowledge is a plus.
Totaled the roof and wrote me a check for $29,000. I can get the roof replaced for much lower than that. Will they ask for the difference back? The adjuster said nothing about having to turn in a receipt upon completion.
I have a GE Spacesaver XL over-the-counter microwave that runs but no longer heats. I'm going to replace it and I'm wondering if it's something I can do myself or if I need an installer (who charges $135). I'll need to install a new bracket... and I've heard microwaves can be dangerous to work with unless you discharge the capacitor. Any suggestions?
I'm interested in working for AllStone in Tulsa, Oklahoma. They fabrication and install exquisite kitchen counter tops and bathroom surfaces made of granite and marble. My concern is that I may not know what I need to get hired on just yet and I was wondering if anyone out there has some advice. I am aware that I can just go to them and ask but I would like to make a good first impression and appear as if I know a little something at least.
I need to know what I will need other than solar panals and a wind turbine
I'm getting new kitchen cabinets, they are coming in tomorrow to rip them out and the next day to put new ones in, i won't get my granite countertops for a few more weeks, will it be really dusty? do they put plywood on top of the cabinets for a makeshift countertop?
Does anyone know what construction machines are needed e.g. crane.
note: I don't actually need to build a house I'm just doing research on this topic.
I have a larger projection tv with a huge cabinet surrounding it. My very skinny son can fit and get to the back of things when plugging and unplugging stuff. will the installer do that? or do I have to do something?
This weekend I am going in to meet with people to purchase Granite contertops. What are good questions to ask to make sure I am getting the whole story and the best quality, etc.
I already do a paper route and own a lawn service company but we hardly got any rain this year and it has costed me a lot just to stay running. I am ready to hopefully get a job out of construction and that actually pay a good wage! Thanks for all the help and I will give away a free game to the best answer! Just put your e mail address in with your answer!!
Just had a new two-piece air conditioner installed. The condenser is outside and the air handler is inside. Here is the strange thing that is happening: The AC will run for a few days without any problems and then suddenly stop. As soon as the AC tech arrives and takes off the air handler cover, the system starts running again without anything else being done. Has now happened three times in the past week. I have resorted to keeping the air handler cover unscrewed. Any explanations???
I was 17 when I started installing flooring. I wasn't ready to call myself a flooring installer until I was 26 and then didn't go out on my own until I was 28. Now I am 34 and I still have to call on all those years of experience every time I do a flooring job. Is it safe to give DIY advice to people that may not have the skills sets to complete the jobs. These people could lose digits, eyes, even their lives by trying to complete some of these tasks.
My boyfriend is putting in a application at a woodworking buissness as a installer of cabinents. what would be some special skills he could put down?
