"Mr. Dobelstein is terrific to work with: he is very organized, friendly and professional and did a wonderful job hanging the blinds and putting together a metal" media table. Since I had measured 13 windows myself in our 80-year old house, he had to work around a couple of my novice-type errors in measuring to get the blinds hung correctly. But he did that with no problems, complaints or additional expense. Next time, I'll ask him to measure the windows before ordering.

"We were extremely please with the price, the quality of the work, and the service we received. The man who completed the job was punctual and very professional and" friendly. My association was supposed to provide the paint but I couldn't get in touch with anyone so he took a paint sample and had it matched so that he could ensure the job was properly finished. We will absolutely use this company again in the future.

OK - terminology issue here. The "shower pan" is a collection liner than underlies the shower floor itself, and is designed (if built and plumbed right) to trap any leakage from the shower floor and route it to the same floor drain pipe. Example image here, copper in this case - 

http://indigochreblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/12/img_0835.jpg

It sounds like your are saying the shower floor or base unit failed - likely a fiberglass or plastic shower, which commonly fail due to incomplete support under them. This can be repaired if fiberglass, but is not usually done unless just microcracking, as it is hard to find an expert - usually you have to have a car body fiberglass specialist or a surfboard repair expert do it, and the color will not match perfectly unless you get a new gelcoat over the entire base unit. Cost about $300-500, ASSUMING the material can be repaired - true fiberglass can, thermoplastic can sometimes be welded but anyone's guess how long it will last without cracking again, plastics like PVC can rarely be fixed so they will hold someone standing on them. Any sort of repair is likely to crack again, because you have done nothing to remove the cause of the cracking which is standing on a base that is not fully supported over its full extent. Some cheepo or desperate plumbers try injecting non-pressuring type expanding foam underneath to improve the support - this does a great job of supporting it but unfortunately supports mold, so starts stinking in short order as a rule.

The normal fix is to remove and replace it, because once it is out there is no sense in putting a damaged one back in for the small increment in cost. Removing it means taking the shower wall liners or the bottom row or two of tile out so you can get the new base unit into place (because they overlap it), then replacing them. So, the $3000 range indicated is indicative of this type of job, which typically runs from a very low of around $1500-2000 for an identical base unit, to more typically $3-5,000 depending on whether a shower enclosure or tile walls. Of course,when the new one is put in, it is CRITICAL that it be fully supported - this means rubbing plumbers rouge or similar marking substance on the bottom, test fitting it, and then lifting it out and checking that all the stiffener ribs and support pads made contact with the pan, and making adjusments as necessary until it has full contact, then standing in it and rocking back and forth to check for any points not making full contat and fixing them.

The $10,000 plus numbers you got must have been for entire shower replacement down to the joists and studs, and the $30,000 range number would be typical for a full bathroom remodel with new shower or shower/tub and doors and surround, wall finishes, vanity, sink, toilet, and flooring and door.

?

I am not sure a general handyman is the right person for the skylight.  We fix quite a few skylights that were installed by handymen and that could be the problem at its origination.  You will want a roofer for that.

 

As long as you are splitting the trades at that point, might as well get a flooring contractor to look at the floor once you have figured out the skylight repair/replacement equation.

The price was high, i thought. If I remember, the hall bathroom was over $5000, and the Master Bath was around 7700. When I tried calling him to discuss the price ( the estimated was emailed to me), It took several tries before I could reach him and he never called me. I just continued calling until one day he answered the phone. Even when I emailed him, I got no reply. I took it that he didn't really want the job. So, I called
Birmingham Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
on Call to complain and they wanted to know if I wanted them to send him back out and I said "no".
I asked if they could send someone else and they told me that he was the only one they had in this area. So, that was that.

I hired Mr.
Birmingham Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to clean up a property that had not had any lawn care for almost a year. He promptly contacted me to schedule the work. The property was very overgrown with tall grass and weeds and covered in pine needles. He let me know what he could do in the allotted time up front. When the work was complete, he sent me pictures of the property, which is over 60 miles away. I was very impressed. Mr.

went above and beyond what was expected. Not only was the lawn work done well, but all of the pine needles, branches and small dead trees were cleaned up and hauled away. I was very pleased with the work. I'll definitely use him again.

We were very impressed with
Birmingham Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. He was very knowledgeable and creative. He had a can do attitude and he seemed very trustworthy. He understood what our needs were and my desire to balance what I could do myself to save money and what I needed help with. He even offered to do a couple of small things at no extra cost. For the things I could do he gave good advise as to how to accomplish them.
With his knowledge and experienced I wondered why he was working as a

. Apparently it was his way of dealing with the slowness of work during the recession, I told you he is creative!
Ventilation system is working well, of course I won't know for sure how well will work till the hot steamy days of summer return :-).
Next time we need to hire someone to do projects around the house we probably will not even shop around. We'll just call

and CJ came out right away to give us a quote. They took about two and a half days to do the work, stuck to the quoted price, and did a high-quality job. They also gave some good advice about water control around the house. We appreciated their promptness and professionalism, and we plan to hire them again.

W. was our carpenter/project manager, and he did a great job! He took it in stride to lengthen the electrical lines that were too short, and did a great job installing the cabinets. Since we changed some of the sizes and configurations, the flooring wasn't quite right for the new arrangement.

put plywood under the cabinets to lift them, then installed a front kick on the cabinets to cover up the places the floor didn't meet. He did a great job getting all the lights in, and even figured out a better arrangement for the transformers to save us some money. He also figured out a great way to install shelves under our wall cabinets in a way that allowed them to be floating, instead of having huge brackets, while still supporting at least 8 pounds of weight on the shelf. The only thing he did that I didn't like as well, was not putting a spacer behind the base cabinets to move them out to account for the thickness of the

220 outlet. Since he didn't do the demolition, he may not have realized the old cabinets were that way, and consequently did not install the spacer behind the new ones. The result is our

now sticks out about 3/4" past the front of the cabinets. Not a huge deal, but it is obviously a little off when you see it. We're very pleased with the new vent that allows the hood to blow thing outside, instead of back into the house, and our new lighting is fantastic.

and his helper showed up on time every morning, worked the entire day except for a lunch break, and kept things reasonably clean.
The estimate was a little slow making its way to us following the initial site visit, but the company was very responsive when we called to schedule the work, and even agreed to use 2 people for the job to cut the time to one week instead of two. Overall, we were very pleased with

Excellent work! They arrived as scheduled and, while it took a few hours longer than estimated (due to finding additional water damage and wood rot), they completed the job in a timely manner. The owner visited and checked on progress throughout the day, and the foreman and workmen that stayed here worked diligently and professionally to complete the work exactly as requested. They were very considerate of not disturbing us or our pets any more than necessary, and kept us informed throughout the project of what they were doing and what would be next. They did a great job; we would definitely use them again!
