"
was very pleasant, straightforward and HONEST. For single women that have to address and handle home repairs and issues -- this is your" guy. He was upfront, open and honest about the repairs I needed. He explained how each job was to be done and how long it would take. Where
went above and beyond was that he advised me on how to handle a plumber/plumbing issue that was causing me much stress and aggravation on top of the money I had already paid. He was willing to put his personal profit aside to advise me of what my priorities should be and why. His knowledge, experience and work ethic proved to be priceless.

"Have to say that between the beginning of this job, and the end, I became frustrated with
. Partially, I did not know he had other jobs" in front of mine. When he was able to schedule me today, I thought, I will believe it when I see it. Well,
showed up punctually, and fully equipped to put finishing touches on this one job. I needed this one thing done to move on to other damage repair work. I interviewed 5 other carpenters before asking
to do this work. I also placed calls to carpenters for 3 months, and a lot of people just won't work in Detroit. The woodwork throughout my home is very, very lovely. My deceased companion, and deceased Father were both talented woodworkers. I needed someone with excellent skills I hired
, initially because he was knowledgeable about woodworking. I did not realize until today that he not only knows how to operate the tools, but has strong, creative abilities. He is also an incredibly nice person. Have to add, I am not an easy customer. I have been through a very strenuous time, and have had over 100 people work on the house to restore it. One top-rated work crew came in here, and just did shoddy work. I think they thought it was acceptable to give me poor labor because of the local I live in.
excelled my expectations. I need to get some electrical repairs promised to another company. When the electric work is done,
will, hopefully have openings to return here, and continue repair work. Ten months into repairs from that August storm, I have, up until today, been mildly satisfied with work. Today's work was like a gift from God, in that it helped me believe I might restore my home to its' former
. Thanks,
, thank-you so very much. If you can wait for
to squeeze you into his schedule, you will not be disappointed. He really doesn't charge enough for the skill in his work.

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.

, was timely, professional and made suggestions to keep cost down on a number of repairs. He was flexible as far as working around my schedule. I would recommend him to family and friends his quality of work was great, clean-up was perfect and customer service was on point.
I had all repairs inspected by city inspector and everything passed the first time.




Thanks

Needed my basement redone because of a combination of mold and flood water. They put in new drywall in my basement, painted the entire area, put in a new toilet, a new washtub, and new baseboard. He did an excellent and exceptional job, and went above and beyond my expectations without charging me anything extra. He was prompt, professional, asked good questions, and kept me updated on how the process was going. I never had to call to find out if he was coming.

work was exceptional. He was punctual everyday and had a team ready to go for each day of the construction period. There was constant communication regarding status of job and what was going on. Entire project came in within the quoted price and per the specified time period. There were many opportunities he took to point out how we could save money because of a few expected things that came up during the construction phase. I would highly recommend

is a very likable person, he is not very conscientious or skilled in his craft. The linoleum job was patchy and ugly, but the two steps down to the landing was the straw that broke the camels back. I will have to tear out the entire job and have it redone.

spent most of his time on the phone talking to other customers, when he should have been dedicating that time to the job at hand. I was prepared to overlook that, until I saw the extent of the deficiencies in the work they had done. I would not hire them again. I am searching for good contractors that know their trade and take pride in what they do, not people that do as little as possible, as fast as possible and make excuses while doing it. The only thing big about this deal was the rip off of time, materials and money lost in the process. I was not going to write this review but I thought I owed it to others to share our experience with them. If the crew acts as if they do not know what they are doing, they do not and their problem solving skills are less than adequate and sloppy. Proceed at your own risk!
