Looking for tradesmen / architect for the below:
1. Heating system
2. Flooring - Tile and hardwood
3. Basement / Laundry room remodel (lot of concrete work really)
4. Garage expansion from 1 to 2 car

Cheers

Sorry, can't help with contractors, etc.

Just in case you haven't seen it, you might find some helpful info in this thread, which includes things to watch out for as you consider renovating a property.

Renovera.ch will let local craftsmen/tradesmen give you free quotes for work and they have reviews from past work so you can see if they're actually any good.

You can also take some estimates from German companies. My friend renovate the kitchen and redo all tiling with quite reasonable price compared with CH.

Re: Renovating old house in Wurenlos

I would recommend contacting EF member Peeter as he is close and has expertise in a lot of these areas. www.proproperty.ch
I have worked on a few renovations with him and he is more than a handyman.

Re: Renovating old house in Wurenlos

I've used Ofri for a lot of random things lately - ofri.ch.

Works well - and you get free quotes rather than what seems to be the norm in some parts of CH to charge for quotes.
