“Dear PoPville,

Hoping someone can help me getting recommendations on window replacement.

I have a large vinyl double hung window (48×72 est). This window no longer seals, window pane is cracked and counterbalance system is busted. Repairing window would be a giant waste of time. Window is located in the dining room and we have a separate renovation project in this room and this is the perfect time to swap out the window since new drywall will go up. I’ve called around and some companies won’t come out because it is only 1 window. Others come across like snake oil salesman trying to upgrade me on options over the phone. So does anyone know of a good company/individual? I live in Columbia Heights and would like to get this done before the first cold spell.”

“Dear PoPville,

I was hoping to ask for general recs for a plumber. The shower head in my guest bathroom (where there is no faucet, water just goes straight to the shower head) quit working. It worked fine and then when I had a guess in town about a month after the last use it wasn’t working. Water just dribbles out. Any recommendations?”

Contractor needed:

“My front patio/porch is unlevel due to the years of poor drainage. I have rectified that problem a while ago, but now am looking for a contractor who could raise and relevel the patio. Specifically one of the support columns would likely need to be cut, the roof raised, and something placed in the gap, I think. But need a good contractor who has done this before, can give me a quote, and let me know what my ballpark figure is going to be for it. Any recommendations? Thanks!”

Installing a backyard fence–recommendations?

“The backyard of our Columbia Heights rowhouse has a lovely wood fence on one side (thanks to our neighbors) and a standard chain-link fence on the other, as well as 2 chain-link gates at the end of the driveway. We’re hoping to remove the chain-link gates and replace them with wood. Any recommendations for a contractor who is affordable and reliable? Any idea on how much this type of a project costs? Thanks for your help.”

and

Shower Glass:

“I need some frameless shower glass installed – probably 3/8 inch. When I search I mostly find companies that repair car windshields. Does anyone have a recommendation for a DC shower glass installation company? Thanks.”
