Reputable Contratctors

New postby Paul_H » Tue Jan 01, 2013 2:25 am

Hi All - I've enjoyed this site, soon to be a catskill (2nd) home owner in the Shandaken area. I will be looking to have some work done, couple of categories:

1) basement, foundation, drainage - Need to grade a dirt floor basement / crawl, pour some footings, dig sump pit, gravel, vapor barrier, concrete etc.
2) repair / rotted floor joists, install some columns, etc on new floor / footings
3) good window guy, also vinyl sofit / gutter install
4) excavation including minor grading around foundation, improve a swale, fill in a small pool/ pond, gravel driveway, etc.

That'll get me started, any quality recommendations are appreciated. I'm not looking for the lowest price, just a fair price with good quality.

Thanks, look forward to some good inputs - Paul

Not too many honest contracts around here. Some are better then others.

You can also put an ad on Craig's List. Find someone independent or an individual. List an ad for each job. You might go thru a number of people until you find someone good. This works best when you know how to do the work, and you want help or someone to do the hard work.

I am not sure if you are still interested in reputable contactors. I have a second home in Shandaken and we have a fantastic handyman who takes care of everything for our home. Either he does it himself or he knows who can do it and do it right. Reach me at rhodell165@gmail.com. 8-)
