"It went fairly well. He came out the day I contacted him and completed the tasks while I was still at work. One of the gutter downspouts ended up having a minor" leak in a joint, but it was nothing compared to the amount of water that was flowing against my house before the fix. He was at my house for a few hours and completed both jobs to my satisfaction.

"The guy came by at the scheduled time and told me that one of his workers had an injured ankle. Then we talked about the job, he didn't like my idea on how" to repair the post and gave me his idea. Got around to the price and it was to high so i didn't hire him. By the way he said he was the vice president of the company ..

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.

The work was done in a professional manner and on time. There were a few surprises as is common with older homes and plumbing, so another project is still under way to completely redo the master bathroom shower area. That will be a subsequent review. Work is done on an hourly basis, so changes can add up quickly. Having it quoted as a whole job, if possible may be better, especially if you only have one area to work with. Also, paperwork is not a strength for them, so if you require copies of receipts and good documentation, follow up on it as work is progressing to avoid delays at the end of the job and lost info.

San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's name fits his personality. He is humble, skilled, and knowlegable in everything around the house. 1) From the moment he arrived, he took a quick look of what I wanted him to do with the fence and went straight to work without much question. His work on the backyard fence was excellent and efficient. He knew exactly what needed to be done to repair the fallen section and strengthen the remaining sections to prevent any more planks falling over in near term. He brought all the tools and nails needed for the job. He worked diligently even though it was 90-100 degree weather today. I offerred him as much cold water as I could to keep him well hydrated. 2) For the shelves, I understood that he was only by himself, so didn't expect him to do the job alone. With his smart knowlege of how to use the step ladders we had at hand, we were able to raise the heavy shelfs and he screwed them securely into the wall. I thought myself we would need at least 3 people for the lifting, but he was able to figure it out with just the 2 of us. 3) The back door light install went smoothly without a hitch. This item wasn't originally on the list of todos, but he handeled it without problem as we had time left.

and
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
arrived right on time and figured out what needed to be done.
They did a wonderful job. They took the cabinet down. Repaired the top of the cabinet and reinforced it with another piece of wood so it would not come apart again. They even stained the piece of reinforcement wood so it would look finished.
I thought it would would take two people to take down the cabinet and put it back up, so I told
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
when he called. Having two people worked out perfect.
After they remounted the cabinet, they put all of the shelves and doors back on the cabinets and vacuumed up any dust. They left the area cleaner than when they arrived.

Later when the glue was dried I tested the doors and they were still sticking (though not quite as much). I also noticed that the doorknob was installed crooked. The previous doorknob was crooked and I was hoping the new one would have been installed straight, especially since the guy had to drill a new hole in the door, but he apparently used the old crooked doorknob as a guide. I called the main line and left a message saying that some of the work was not done correctly and that I'd like to have someone come out and correct it, but haven't heard back. I've been too busy to call them a second time, so they may have fixed this already if I had been a bit more proactive about it.

The company that completed the service was Case. The gentleman that came to my house did a full review of all of my home and took pictures for all areas. He even went around for special items that I had requested he look at to give me a good idea if I should fix certain cracks, etc. and also let me know that they had handyman services available for the myriad of small items that I needed to have done. He offered to go through my list of items and give me pricing to get some of the work done. I was very happy with the report and professionalism and had a measure of security in knowing what was going on from an objective observer.
