Ok, this home is almost 2400 sq feet, one story (no basement) located
just outside of Houston, Texas. Any idea what a roof job might cost
if it's shingle and complete tearoff of old? Assume that the roof is
normal pitches and there is a detached 2 car garage. Also ball park
figure for painting inside (don't remember how many rooms but assume 7
(3 bedrooms). I'm assuming like $3000 to do the inside (incl
woodwork), sound reasonable ?? This home also needs the foundation
leveled and I don't know how many piers but I guess like $5000 ???
Also what does a front exterior door cost to replace? I may just
have it refinished instead tho. Also what does a rear exterior door
cost to replace (casing and hinges already in place) ? And where can
I go to replace or repair some window screens if I want someone to do
it for me?
Also the kitchen floor tile has cracks. I realize that after the
house is leveled the cracks will tighten. Assuming there are no
spare tiles and it's no longer made, are there fillers to try to fill
A couple of ideas:
* Why not try the interior painting yourself? It ain't rocket surgery. Pick
up a book on the subject at your local box store. There are hundreds of
tricks that can make it easier, like spraying your hands with PAM before you
start (oil and water(-based paint) do not mix).
* Re-screening is trivial. You'll make excellent use of a tool made for the
purpose, about six bucks. The only other things you need is some screen
material. Such material comes in several varieties, aluminum or plastic,
regular or solar radiation repellent, and some rubber gasket material to
hold the screen in place.
