Is $500 a reasonable price to replace sections of woodrot?
I had a nice guy come to my house to install a new door in an existing frame. I paid him $200. Other people i spoke with told me i needed to replace to whole door frame. The guy was able to cut the door to size and fix the jamb. He did a really good job.
Now, i need him to replace a 10 foot section of rotted wood that is below the siding on my house and also replace some of the actual wood siding. The rot is around the cement steps leading to the door. When it rains water can get back there and it has rotted the bottom piece of wood and is now moving up the wood brick and batten siding.
He said when he removes the rotted section he wll need to seal around the cement to keep water from getting to the wood. The siding he needs to replace is a 2 foot by 2 foot section.
he told me he would charge me $500.
I know he does good work.
Does this seem reasonable?
