"I called and described what the job would entail, and they said they'd come out to take a look and contact me with an estimate. I never heard from them, even" after another call to remind them. No response.

"
sent out 2 young men with whom we were very impressed. They did a couple of small jobs for us and did them very well. In talking with" them, they seemed very knowledgeable. For the next little job, they said they would go out and get the parts and set up a time to come back. They never came back. I called
numerous times. The last time I called him, he said, "I will call you next Tuesday." He did not call. We were very disappointed as my husband and I really liked these 2 young men. We wished it was possible to contact them directly. However, it seemed that
was the BOTTLENECK. It was a VERY STRANGE EXPERIENCE!

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.

Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his personel did a great job for us. His knowlege of deck construction was valuable, as our deck needed reinforcing, in addition to resurfacing. He kept us informed daily of his thoughts about the structure and how his work was going. Also, he worked very well with another contractor, who we used for the railing, and with the materials supplier.

He was professional and did the job in a timely manner, so timely that he finished before 2 hours and reduced the cost of the disposal to account for the cost of the coupon that we didn't use. Great service!

I would highly recommend
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. He and his staff are very professional, punctual and work to get the things done time and on budget. He won't be the cheapest bid that you get, but I think his price is fair for the quality of work that is performed. He and his staff handled all of our subcontractors for the kitchen remodel and energy efficiency improvements. We love our new kitchen and the improvements that made our home more efficient and comfortable to live in. In short, I don't think you could find a more trustworthy, honest, professional and talented contractor in the
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
area. We wouldn't hesitate to use
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
again for projects in our home.

One of the workers talked more than he worked and I got billed for that. They went way over budget and left the deck undone. I asked them to come back and they did more of it but it is still not done. It took them much longer to do things than promised.

I was contacted by
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
because I was looking for a Handyman from Handyman Matters. It appears that Handyman Matters has gone out of business and the former employees formed this company. When we had a storm come through, I noticed the Gutter was loose on the second story and that a piece of the fascia by the roof also had come loose. I contacted
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and he came over the next business day (I contacted him late on a Friday and he was here on the following Monday) because he was concerned there could be more damage if any more storms came through. He arrived when he said he would, brought a co-worker and they both got down to business.

Worked on the gutter and the fascia, while his co-worker worked on a couple of fence posts on either side of a large gate to straighten them out. Everything was repaired to my satisfaction and beyond .

My house is 65 years old and although basically sound, it has had some shoddy workmanship over the years. The roof had 7 layers of cheap shingles--each one just nailed on top of the other.
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his crew were professional and prompt. The roof looks great. I feel that
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
gave me an exceptionally good deal on this roof job because of all the many layers of shingles they had to remove.
He brought me a book of samples and I picked out the shingles I wanted.
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
picked them up and had them delivered to my house. He is very good at informing me of anything I need to do, such as apply for a building permit and rent a dumpster.
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is very respectful and goes out of his way to be kind. He never talks down to me. He is not the type of contractor who takes advantage of people and that is rare.
When they were done with the roof, he painted my shingles and replaced my front light as a courtesy for the endorsements and recommendations I've given him.
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
also laid down ceramic tile in my basement and linoleum in my kitchen. He replaced my back door. All of his work has been very well done and very reasonable.

I like
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
but we had a hard time connecting. I placed my order on April 16 and the work was finally performed on June 10.
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was pretty good about getting over to take a look at the work to be done but then it took him quite a while to get back to me with an estimate (I got it about 10 days after I expected to get it. I asked for an itemized estimate but never got a written one. The estimate for the work was $900 plus materials for 16 hours of work (but this included spray washing and repairing our deck as well as a couple of light fixtures, which we did not have him do); The estimate contained no details other than the hours and costs. I wanted more detail because I wasn't sure what was costing what and wasn't sure I wanted all of the work to be done. I also pointed out that
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had indicated his normal rate was $50 an hour and that I had prepaid for 4 hours of work so the most the bill should be was 16 hours - 4 hours = 12 hours; 12 hours x $50 per hour = $600, plus materials.
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
agreed but at best this was sloppy accounting. I still wanted a written estimate which again I did not receive. We scheduled the work for 8 a.m. on June 10th. I had told
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
I would be fixing the lights and around June 1st I called
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and told him we would skip the deck repair and spray wash since we were thinking about just replacing the deck.
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's helper
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
got to the house at 9:30 a.m. on the 10th indicating that
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was coming soon (I had given up on seeing them when he finally arrived).
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
thought they were going to be spray washing the deck and didn't have a list of all of the other projects to be done along with him. He was a nice young guy who is clearly doing some on the job training. He did a very nice job on our major project - fixing the front entry way.
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came about 45 minutes later and was in and out of the job during the day - my impression was the he was primarily here to do the plumbing related work. He fixed our faucet after getting part from a local plumbing store for under $10 (he had said if he couldn't get the part the faucet would have to be replaced; I was happy). In fact, I was generally happy with the work that was performed.
On June 15 we got the bill for
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's services. He listed the services as I indicated above and billed us for 8 hours of work, plus $69 for materials. The time seemed about right. I have contacted him about the bill because it had a couple of problems. He charged us $300 for the 8 hours of work when he should have charged us $200 (I had prepaid for 4 hours of work for $100, but instead of subtracting 4 hours, he subtracted the $100 I had prepaid for the service). I was a little disturbed because I had purchase a piece of fairly expensive trim to be used for the work on the front entry way. It was way too long so I had it cut in half expecting to use the other piece for something else but when
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
left all of the trim left with him. I'm not sure what happened there and inquired about it. I was also a little concerned about the materials cost but I am no expert and just asked for a breakout of materials costs when
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
sends the corrected invoice, which I have not yet received.
In summary,
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did and
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did good work. It was hard to communicate with
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and he and
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
weren't prompt.
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is sloppy with his accounting and although he readily corrects his mistakes, you have to double check his bills.

Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
worked for more than four days on my place, granted not both at the same time although they overlapped quite a bit.
It was a real pleasure to interact with them.
I believe that they did a great job and the price was reasonable.
They ordered missing/broken parts and tried to save us money.
Although i paid them before some loose ends were taken care of, they came back and wrap up the entire job.
Overall, a very good experience. As i told
Madison Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, when I need help i'll call him again. Great job done by two nice people.
Thank you,
