I hope everyone is doing great! I have a property in Monticello, NY that I'm planning to close on next month. There is a sill plate in the basement that is failing along one of the walls.
I have 3 questions:
- Can Anyone provide a referral for a contractor who might be able to go over and provide an estimate in the next few days?
- Is this job one that needs a GC, or should a handyman be able to complete this job for me?
- Is the estimate of $90-100 per linear foot I saw online a legit estimate of the cost of this job?
Thanks in advance!
All the best,Remi
You’re going to need more than a handyman to fix/repair / replace that. Depending on how bad it’s rotted. You will have to jack the building up to support it while it’s replaced. Get someone that knows what they are doing.
Would be a good idea to get estimates before closing that way you could ask for concessions or a price reduction if it's needed.
