May was punctual and after going to the store with me to make sure I had all the parts needed," installed my new railings with no problem. Thanks!

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 -

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.

Very punctual and professional. Installed outdoor dusk to dawn lamp. Told me what was wrong with the previous one and checked to make sure new outdoor one was working properly. Also installed new sensor on flood light and replace bulb in additional external lighting fixture. Installed new GFI plug in bathroom. Replaced portion of corner area of structure located beneath the gutter (not sure what it's called). Price consistent with work done. Will keep him in mind for all future work.

The overall job went extremely well. I was very pleased with the quality of work; timeliness; and price. Mr. May seems very knowledgeable about his craft. I appreciated the fact that he explained what needed to be done for each project and did give me some options. His estimates were spot on. I plan to use him again.

He started early , took out the vent, replaced it , cleaned up & was finished in about 1 1/2hr..maybe faster. He was personable & accommodating. I plan on having my roof replaced. I will call them 1st & depending on the price I may not look anywhere else. I think they would do a fantastic job....

I called for attic ventilation and he referred me to someone else. He said it would be cheaper for me to call a roofer and he gave me the name of a man who owns a roofing company.

I called for a quote for installing vents/ventilation in my attic. I got the machine and I left a message. A couple of days later I called again and a woman answered who was driving at the time. She said she could call me back when she wasn't driving and she never did. She didn't sound very professional.
