He is also a pleasure to" work with--he keeps me informed, lets me , cleans the area each night, makes good suggestions when issues invariably arise, and works extremely hard to achieve perfect results. Highly recommend.

"I just purchased a house that needed TLC. and Pat are WONDERFUL. They have gone over and beyond. I had old basement windows that were cracked" and not sealed around the frames. and Pat knew what they needed and installed (7) glass blocked windows They looked around the store and figured out how they could make the windows work and not cost me a lot of money. The window wells were dug but not deep enough and the metal piece was not attached to the house. They dug them deeper, filled with rock, and attached the metal piece. The corners of my siding were or had fallen off. went and found matching siding corners and checked all the corner pieces on a two story house to make sure they were all attached. He verified I had the correct smoke alarms and that I had enough for all the rooms per code. They really look out for their customers and do GREAT quality of work. I kept adding to my list and they just said "okay" and it was done. They cleaned up where they work and even took out and brought in my trash cans for me. I could go on and on about and Pat and their work. I will recommend them to anyone that is asking for a . It is hard to find honest, hardworking, and great customer service.

Do I Need a Handyman or Contractor?

Handymen and contractors — they both fix your house, but which should you call for certain jobs?

Hiring a handyman? The following tips will help ensure you and your handyman are on the same page.

Arm yourself with these informative questions before hiring an NYC handyman.

These service providers are your best bet to patch drywall or plaster holes that plumbers, electricians and other service providers may create while working.

Apartments, Handymen

An apartment maintenance guy (or gal) is typically a jack-of-all-trades, but heating and electrical repairs may require trade licensing.

I have never know of any spay on popcorn to have asbestos , but there is alot out there that I havent seen I guess. The best way of removing popcorn is with a 3 gallon sprayer and 12inch mudding knife. Spray the popcorn with warm water, let set for a minute and scrap.

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.

He arrived with another guy. When I went out to the back yard he was on his ladder at the hole up on the chimney wall, He said, he had banged on the wood and a squirrel jumped out and landed on deck (two stories) and ran off. I said there was probably another in there, but said no that he had listened and if there had been ...More another it would have come out too I said there is usually a family in a nest. I presumed he was going to put the trap over the hole to be sure. When I returned later he had put an unpainted wooden board over the hole. When I asked him why he had covered the hole and not set a trap he said there were no animals there so he had covered the hole and that he could not find a two way trap. He said he looked down the chimney with his camera and there was nothing there and he was not doing anything further up there. He then went to the front of the house and filled with caulk several holes around the front and sides of house.
He then came to the door said he was finished and asked to be paid for he day's work right then even though the project was not finished. He said he would get more boards, stain them, and finish the job later. I was worried there were still animals inside, but he said no and told me his camera would have shown any animals and there were none there. I also told the other guy I was afraid animals were still there. They both said they knew there was nothing trapped. I presumed they had a lot of experience and knew what they were doing. He said if I was right he would come back.
.
He said we owed him $300.00 He was only there from 2-430. We questioned him not only about the amount of the bill, but about how we could be sure the animal was not inside. He said the bill was for two persons at ::$65.00 each plus some squirrel spray and small board and supplies. . (the second person basically went back and forth to the truck to get stuff a few times.) We would never have agreed to pay $130.00 per hour. We told him that our understanding was that the rate was $65.00 per hour for the job. He said he had two people on site which of course was true, but he did not say the job would cost more for the second guy.
He never said it would be two people and each person was $65.00. I am over 70, but have perfect hearing and certainly would not have agreed to that rate.

We did not want to fight and still needed the work completed so we paid him.
He left with his money, and left us with a bottle of Spray Away and an unpainted board on the top of our chimney wall..
That night we hear a frantic squirrel trying to get past the board.

I called him in the am to tell him the animal(s)l was still inside and that he needed to come back,.. He said he was not coming back.I Told him the animal would die a painful death said he had misled us about the rate, and the trap but that in any event he needed to free the animal. He said he was not coming back. I called him back a few minutes later and tried once more to get him to come and he then said I had indicated to his helper that I knew more about squirrels and the job than he did and was not coming back and we could do whatever we wanted to do about that, I said we would
He called later in the day and said he would take off the board but that was all. He left it on our porch. We are now looking for someone to do this right.

We really value . However, he is so much in demand now that it is increasingly difficult to book his time -- which is a good thing for a fellow who is so very talented. I see there are complaints about not being able to reach him. Without a full office staff, he does the best he can responding to requests for estimates and ...More finding time to do the work.

We purchased the "deal" for $189 for four hours of handyman work from , but never called us to find out what we wanted done or when to schedule. We messaged him several times on Angie's List but he still did not calll. So we cancelled and requested our payment to be returned. I wonder ...More why someone would advertise a "deal" if they were too busy to honor it or if they just didn't want to do the work.

Excellent. The team of was professional, timely, and efficient. I have very little "fix it" skills and it was a relief to have someone very knowledgable to answer all of my questions and concerns.

We were desperate to get the work done before the end of August and Ed was able to work us in and get it done. He was very helpful in giving me some pointers on jobs I was doing myself and got the job done on schedule. I woud highly recommend Ed for any job large or small.
