Dear Angie: Do handymen bring their own tools? – Wendy H., Spring Lake, North Carolina

Hiring a Handyman
Handymen

Hiring a handyman is a great way to get small projects done around the home, but many homeowners wonder: How much does it cost to hire a handyman?

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.

I called
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
in the morning and he said that he had an opening at 6pm that evening, which worked out perfectly for us. He called at 5:45pm to confirm that he was on track to be at our place at 6pm.

After the on-time arrival, he went to work on the old switch box sorting out which of the wires needed to be connected to the new one. After ~15-20 minutes of testing and confirming, he had the new switch installed and working perfectly.

It was a

He was prompt, polite and did the job quickly and well. The job took two stops since he had to let the drywall filler dry. He returned, sanded it , applied a second

was a pleasure to deal with and thoughtful about how to approach the problem of getting to the leak (as well as with other projects we discussed but haven't hired anyone to do yet). The work was done carefully, without any damage to the siding.

We scheduled a free estimate with

in mid-november to have a tile backsplash installed in our condo's kitchen.

came over as scheduled. Took a look at our space + the materials we had accumulated, gave us a quote, and recommended a few more things that we will need to purchase.
On the install date
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his partner came right on time and got straight to work. As they come in the evenings (because they do full time jobs by day), my lady and I left them to their handiwork and went out for dinner/ went to run some errands as it was to take ~3 hours (6 man hours as they work as a team). After about 2 hours,
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
gave my cell a call to let me know they were gonna be finishing up soon.
We headed home and by the time we got there it was done. Not only that, they ran into some difficulties due to our original shoddy cabinet install job, but were able to breeze through it no problem. When it came time to settle up, we were only on the hook for 2 hours of work (33% less than expected) and paid them accordingly. Not only that but the tile backsplash looks amazing.
The next time we need any work done around the house that we either can't do, or we don't have time to do,
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
will be the first person I call!
