"I wanted a custom designed screened porch for our 10' x 20' covered patio to: keep out insects, be architecturally similar to our house, and for the wood-frame" structure to be built strongly to help last through strong storm winds. Rik
worked with my drawings and requests to create exactly what I had envisioned with beautiful finish work. This is the third project that I have used
and Remodel and I have already scheduled a fourth. Excellent work ethic and skill.

"Mr.
and assistant were at my house on time as promised. Worked throughout the day to complete the job. Replaced with materials that will" last. Came in under the estimate. Everything looks better than I imagined it would. Mr.
cares about the work he does and it shows in the finished job. My neighbors noticed how nice it looks now. I highly recommend Mr.

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 was okay. Some things worked well. They tried to attach a dishwasher to the counter but the next day it fell off. They put a mantle around the fireplace and that went great. They weren't able to work on an outdoor gate that was loose.

was phenomenal. Both ceiling fans were hung by a previous owner in an EXTREMELY non-conventional way, making the switch out very complicated. They could have just told me that I had to go with the

took the time to figure out an alternative solution that, while it took longer to complete, was less expensive for me in the long run. He was completely professional and friendly, cleaned up completely after himself, and was a delight to work with. I would definitely recommend

Showed up on time to give the estimate, which we were happy with. He was able to complete the job on the same day, so that was a big plus. He was very professional & courteous. Completed the work outside & cleaned up after himself. He was here for maybe an hour or hour & a half. The door & vent worked out perfectly as we had hoped. Had the option to pay with a credit card, which was convenient & easy. Very quick & painless transaction which is what we like!! Will definitely use them in the future!

let me know he would have trouble fitting us into his schedule for about a week, but when he heard that we had leaking water, he squeezed us into the same day. He may not be able to do that all the time, but I appreciated that was willing to consider emergency work situations. And he didn't even charge extra for the same day service.

was thorough: fully removing the toilet, replacing worn out and broken pieces, checking to ensure against water damage, and then reinstalling perfectly. He kept things clean and left the bathroom in great condition.
I found

forthright and clear about work. He's an old-fashioned kind of guy with an eye for detail. We plan to use him again for other handyman repair and installation work that isn't as time-sensitive.

These guys were fantastic! We had another group coming out to do work on the same room and they were very accomodating for us. There was some issues of them both working in the space and they actually left for a bit and came back with no additional charge to us. We also discovered that there were 3 layers of brick they had to get through to create a vent for our dryer and even that didn't raise the cost much! They were professional at all times and the quality of their work was top notch. In addition to the vent they also did some work to our walls and put in a bunch of tile in the room. All of the work looks fantastic and we are calling them soon to do some more work on our house as well! I can't thank these people enough for the great work they did for a fantastic value!
