"The bathroom is unrecognizable as the patchy old version I lived with for years!
's plastering and painting transformed the walls into" a beautiful space, which took at least 4 or 5 coats of plaster and a lot of patient work on his part. He found and refurbished a replacement for my 100-year-old medicine cabinet, which now has a clean metal look to it. His tile work is top-notch, and he even helped with some plumbing problems, without extra charge. After the walls were finished, he helped me measure and reinstall some decorative items. (He also has fine carpentry skills, which I have witnessed in other jobs in my apartment over the years.)

"The cost was based on an Angie's List Big Deal. The technicians were prompt, competent and hardworking. The company submitted a proposal for additional" work which seemed to us to be overpriced and to exceed our needs.

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.

Handyman reviews in New York

It went great. He was on time and ready to go. He was incredibly proficient and also clean and tidy in his work. We did have a miscommunication about which of us was going to buy the wall mount for a tv resulting in neither of us getting it, but that was all. Not a problem as I am having him come back to take care of some other things.

They were great. Gave good advice, moved pictures around on the floor until layout was just right and hung them solidly on different types of walls.

I found
New York Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
on Angie's list and his reviews and recommendations were compelling. (I was only considering professionals with an average grade of A) I called him, left a message and he soon.came by to look at the site and talk about the scope of work.
I asked for 3 different estimates based on different different ways to go, ranging from very basic--painting and installing new base molding, to a more elaborate addition of chair rail and wainscoting with picture moldings. The project had to be put on hold until now when we reconnected and I gave him a go ahead.
There is a reason why

has such high

in every category and I am glad I read every review thoroughly. He showed up prepared and on time, worked without a break all day and always left things neat and clean. Every step of the project was done thoroughly and with a lot of attention to detail. Since we were also replacing the carpet, the installation had to be coordinated with painting and

took a lot of care to cover it and keep it immaculate.
The hallway turned out beautifully and we've had a lot of neighbors stop by to admire it. It's a relief to have found someone who understands and shares my view about what it takes to do the job right and I can recommend him without reservation.

is the man! Knows what he's doing & is ethical -- a welcome combination!
I called him (first time, had just found him on Angie's List) when my kitchen sink handheld sprayer suddenly erupted into an "accidental sprinkler system" and started shooting water EVERYWHERE. I was bracing myself for a miserable experience dealing with this problem.
I briefly described what was going on,

And it worked! AMAZING. All in under 3 minutes.

then explained that based on my description he knew that it was most likely just a matter of tightening a little piece on the handheld, and that if he'd come up and charged me for a visit just to do that he'd have "felt like a

The owners of the company showed up themselves and gave me a free estimate. They built a wall with a doorway to divide one room and make it into two rooms. In the master bedroom, I asked them to remove some wallpaper before painting. They painted the bedroom and the entire apartment. I also had an antique armoire that needed repair. They repaired that for me at no additional charge. I would definitely recommend them and I plan on using them again in the future.
