Boiler Installation BRONX

Hello Brownstoner’s, I’m new to the forum. My name is Vinny and I’m a licensed real estate broker from the Bronx. I manage an 8 unit 4 story property in the Bronx, 2 units on each floor. Need licensed plumber or company who knows what they’re doing, certifies job gets done RIGHT and FILED properly with DOB and Con Ed. System in place is steam with cast iron radiators in the apartments.
I’ve read previous posts on these forums and received great insight. From what I’ve gathered MasterPlumber from Gateway Plumbing always has great advise, Alladin, PetriPlumbing, Victory Brothers, Genady.. Any further recommendations or followups to any of the entities I’ve just mentioned is appreciated. Best Vinny.

Brownstone Renovation September 19, 2014 at 9:06 pm

Contractor recommendation

I wanted to recommend Beer Construction- 646-358-6118. I worked with Beer this past week pouring a concrete sub basement floor in my 1890′s townhouse. He was fast, professional, great to work with and reasonably priced. I especially liked that he had ideas- and good ones. He even fixed a few simple things that I didn’t even know were wrong thrown into the original quote. Such a good experience that after years of perusal, I finally made a Brownstoner account just to recommend him.

What is this exactly and how do I clean it? Is it safe to simply vacuum it with a standard vacuum cleaner?

Cleaning old porous marble

I just rescued an old marble vanity top from the trash. I believe it’s original to our row of brownstones, and I’m ridiculously happy to have it in my possession. However, has seen some better days – it’s dingy and the stone feels very porous. Any suggestions as to how to clean it without damaging it? There aren’t any major stains, just overall grime. Has anyone tried to clean something similar? How did you do it? I plan on installing it eventually. After cleaning, should it be sealed?

Handyman Recommendation

Hi, I’m new in town and already found a great handyman, Brian Piersol. We had him do a wall light installation and he was fast, professional and very reasonably priced I think. We’ll have more projects and we won’t hesitate to work with him again. I know there are a lot of duds in this field, so I wanted to pass the word — hope this is the right forum to do so!
His email: piersol33@gmail.com

Thanks, Robert Bullock (Clinton Hill)

Has anybody figured a decent floorplan for eliminating railroad style bedrooms

Have a 3 family brownstone and it’s the typical layout.. with a couple of rooms on each floor that are walkthru and of course no windows, and kitchen is on the far back right hand side of each apt. I am looking to hire an architect to come up with some ideas but if anyone has figured out a tried and true method to make it more useful or at least feng-shui, please advise. thanks

windows: have our GC install or sub it out on our own?

A GC we are considering to hire on an extensive renovation of our house would like to replace all the windows himself. The windows are original – 100+ years old. Is this a bad idea? I was thinking we’d get a company like Windows We Are and purchase from them and have them do the install. I guess we’d have to have the windows installed after demo but before the rest of the renovations take place, so coordinating perhaps could be tricky or result in lost time if we hire an window company ourselves?

Also, any recent recommendations for window installers? Was thinking about Windows We Are, but their most recent reviews that I can find aren’t glowing. But, it seems like they were really good at some point.

This is for a house in Bay Ridge, non-landmarked. Need about 14 of them.

Finally, any specific window recommendations? Renovating on a strict budget so don’t want anything fancy-pants, but obviously, we want decent quality. House is attached on both sides, is wood-frame, has vinyl siding, and has steam radiator heating by gas.

sliding pocket door and hardware recommendations?

We’d like to install multi-pass sliding pocket doors to divide a front room from the back room. Something like the attached. So, 3 doors on the right-hand side and 3 doors on the left-hand side that when pulled shut completely block off one room from the other. We want the multi-pass so the “pocket” takes up as little floor space as possible when the doors are open.

A few questions:
- what kind of hardware do you suggest for this? We were thinking the Johnson Hardware 100MP 6-Door Multi-Pass Pocket Door Set. (Not sure if the track is only at the top or at top AND bottom.) Any suggestions for others? Want something that is sturdy and will make the doors slide easily, as we intend to open and shut often.
- what kind of doors do you suggest? Since we need 6 of them, and because we’re simple humble folks, we don’t need/want anything fancy. Exciting words like “economical” and “practical” describe our aesthetic. We do however want them to be as soundproofing as possible without spending a ton of money. We’ll pay more for a better door if it makes that much of a difference in soundproofing, but we just want to know our options and then decide.
- Not sure how it works with multi-pass sliding pocket doors…Can we just buy ANY type of door we want and that will work whatever hardware we buy? I have no idea how this works…

Thanks!

termite treatment recommendations: boracare, timbor, sentricon, phantom?

We just bought a 3-story + unfinished basement, 100+ year old wood frame house in Bay Ridge. Girder has termite damage and possible active infestation (won’t know how extensive or if active until we start doing renovations – very soon!)

The house is attached, has a concrete front “yard” and a concrete patio in the backyard before the grass (aka weeds) starts.

What kind of termite treatment do you recommend given the type of property and area? I’m leaning toward boracare, but an exterminator we spoke to said tim-bor would be as effective and cheaper. We also spoke to someone about sentricon or phantom, but I don’t know if I like the idea of bait stations being drilled into the ground, especially into the backyard where our children will be playing. Maybe it’s not an issue and I’m unnecessarily worried about the toxicity.

The boracare would be about $700 or so more (if we use this one exterminator). Is it worth it?

Also, do you think we need to get a boracare or timbor treatment AND bait stations?

Thanks!

Leveling & Stabilizing Cast Iron Radiators

Last winter we purchased 2 new Governale radiators. The plumbers installed them with nickels (as in coins) as a means to level them. Throughout the winter, coins would pop out, so eventually we stuck in some ugly pieces of 2 x 4 we had around. This looks terrible and feels unstable. The larger radiator, in fact, almost toppled over once when I was trying to level it. Any thoughts on a more permanent and attractive way to mount and level these? I looked around for leveling feet– no luck. I could make something? Should these radiators be attached to the floor? By the way, our floors slope a lot and also change throughout the season- so the solution needs to be adjustable. Something like our fridge’s feet would be ideal but not sure how to adapt this to our scenario. Thanks!

window installation

If getting all new windows, why is the brick to brick method favored? Is this what you all suggest? If so, why? Does it cost more to do this? My contractor is telling me the brick to brick doesn’t look as nice without the border. What are your opinions?

Selling off extra bluestone pieces from our old patio

We have a whole bunch of pieces of bluestone we are looking to sell. I believe it is Pennsylvania bluestone since it is more gray/blue in color, but I can’t say for sure.
We just redid the backyard and so this is not needed any longer.

All of it is irregular shaped, most around 1′x1′ or 1′ by 18″ in size, some slightly bigger and some smaller.

Mostly real old looking bluestone- similar to the classic sidewalk bluestone- some pieces are up to 3″ thick, but most are around 1.5-2″.

Not sure how much square footage we have, but a fair amount and definitely enough for small patio or project.

Looking for best offer on it- but we know it’s not cheap, so not looking to give it away- the “antique” sidewalk bluestone looking stuff can be pricey and harder to find.

Located at rear of driveway so real easy to load- just cart it down the driveway and load it up.
