"He came when he said he would. He fixed the toilet for a reasonable price. I'll call him again. Every time I've called him has been a positive experience.

" was courteous, responsive and professional. He installed a new sheetrock ceiling in our basement after the previous paper-based ceiling" fell apart. The new ceiling looks great and has added a degree of spaciousness that wasn't there before. We were quite pleased with the results. We would whole-heatedly recommend to others, and in fact, will retain him for other remodeling projects around the house.

Do I Need a Handyman or Contractor?

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

Plumbing pipes

Some projects require a licensed contractor to ensure they are completed safely and properly.

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

Don't call on that handyman just yet! Here are some simple tasks you can DIY.

Handymen do a variety of work, so their prices vary by trade, project and materials.

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.

It's a little unusual to do this except in cases of fixer-upper properties but you should call a local general contractor with experience renovating/remodeling homes in the neighborhood.  They'll know the typical problems with the homes there and what to look out & budget for.  For example, here in San Antonio many of the homes built in the mid-fifties to 60's have lead drains that were not put in properly or were installed in such a way that repairs are not quick or cheap.  Many homes even older have the same drains but seem to be less hassle to repair.  Homes in my neighborhood have a problem with improper supply lines (wrong type of copper) which break due to corrosion.  Just make sure the contractor you hire to go over the property with you has done significant work on homes in the area on similar homes.

' t let the name fool you by no means are not what you would expect from a service. My coworker recommended I call and ask for . She had work on her home doing several projects and she was so pleased with ...More his work and nothing but good things to say about the company and . So I called they had come out and give me an estimate he thoroughly explained the whole process to me. I told him exactly what I wanted to have done, he gave me some great ideas too. gave me the estimate and I will be honest the price for just the labor surprised me but you get what you pay for. He explained to me that he would be the only one working on the job and that if he would need help with the job that that helper would never be left alone in my home. He gave me a timeline of how long the job would take from start to finish and how the payments would be handled. I felt confident that they were the right ones for the job, but suggested I get a couple more estimates. Wow I am glad he did I had 2 other contractors come out neither one gave me an estimate and the confident feeling I got from my estimate with . My coworker confirmed that when did her job that he kept her informed and helped keep the cost down. SOlD I called back and told him I wanted to get started right away, he told me he could not start my job until he had finished the one he was working on sold again. I asked if he would give me a list of materials so that I could have them ready he gave the list and told me where the best place to get them was. started my job and he delivered just like he promised he was there everyday and each afternoon when I came home from work he showed me what had been done and what I could expect the next day. At each stage when a payment for the job was coming up he let me know in advance no surprises. I felt like I was involved, informed and had choices that was great usually the fix it guy shows up and tells me what he is going to do. I made the important decisions he took care of the details.

first came to see what work we needed to have done so that he could give us an estimate. On that same day, he scheduled with us the day he'd come to perform the work.
We needed to have a kitchen light switch rewired, doorbell fixed, box installed, and at 's suggestion, ...More a door fixed.
He did all of these things perfectly, and we will definitely call again.

Overall the project went smoothly. The work was completed quickly and looks nice.
There were a couple spots that were a little messy. Also, the painter got paint on our duvet cover. Still working out a resolution to that issue.

Not a good experience. When I first called Mr. and told him of the projects I had, he acknowledged he could do that and would call me back. He did and said he would be over on a weekend to take a look. He did not show up, nor did he call to cancel. I called him within the next week to give him the benefit of the doubt in ...More case I misunderstood him. He said that I did not misunderstand him and that he had a family issue to deal with. He subsequently called to set a date to look at what I had and give me an estimate. He did come over, but I never got an estimate. A week or so later he called and said he had a free day and could come over. When I asked him what would be the purpose, he said to install the cooktop.
My project was to install a new kitchen sink, gas cooktop and fasten a ceiling cabinet that was breaking away. I told Mr. that I would not buy any product until I had a commitment from a contractor to install it. NO ESTIMATE & NO COMMITMENTat that point. Now I am really getting baffled about this man. I do not know whether Mr. had personal, business or other issues, but after weeks of trying, I called him the first part of December and left a voice message that I was going to hold off until after the first of the year to do anything. After much consideration and my experience with Mr. , I have decided that he is not the reliable, stable contractor that I want to deal with.,

I was very pleased with the finished result. The work done was very professional and I am extremely happy with the quality of work. I will definitely call for future projects.

He did a fair job. I'm not going to bash him because I think he did a pretty good job. My husband were kind of like their foreman to make sure things are done. There was a few mistakes and took care of them. His prices probably could have been better but I know that he's got to make his money too. The only thing that I thought was excellent ...More was the tiles. I have tiles through the entire floor so the tile was excellent. My husband would try to get hold of him on the weekends and he wasn't answering the phone. He was okay. He had a guy working for him and I don't think he was as professional.
