"It went very well, I am extremely happy.
came by with
to discuss the jobs I needed done, and left soon after.
" replaced the faucet and then
came in to help with the rest of the items. The work that was done was very well done, and when something went wrong with the installation of the door I had purchased, they replaced it with a new one at no charge to me, not even additional labor. All 3 men were pleasant and professional ... they even asked if they needed to watch out for my 2 cats being "escape artists". I wholeheartedly recommend this group; I'll definitely be calling on them again!

"Cliff showed up on time as promised and helped us install a whole bunch of things inside the home. He helped us with dismantling and re-assembling a IKEA
" wardrobe, stabilized a standing cutlery shelf, installed laundry shelves from Lowes, installed the LACK shelves from IKEA and installed ELFA railing units and shoe closet. He was prompt and thorough in his work.

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.

I set up an appointment with the owner. He had scheduled for 12 noon today but then rescheduled for 8am. He was over 40 minutes late. He also advised me there was a $79 trip fee and I could not use my multiple deals in one trip so I would have to pay multiple trip fees. The fine print says to buy multiple deals for bigger jobs and doesn't mention the trip charge. This seems like a bait and switch to me and I am cancelling my deals.

i purchased the deal for 2 hours of handyman service.

showed up promptly ontime and completed both projects with great care and precision. While installing the garbage disposal also helped trouble shoot a small leak i'd noticed and took care of that at the same time. Super easy to schedule with

The guy showed up late, was slow to work. His skill were terrible. He left nails protruding in the fence where my children could be injured - after having removed all the screws that were originally there. The handrail he built doesn't match and he sloppily shimmed (after he cut the lumber too short) it with a mis-matched piece. He missed spots (painting) on the deck, like the sides of the posts. The fence he "mended" fell apart almost right away.
This guy is terrible. He might be a nice person, but he should NEVER wield a hammer or paintbrush. I would not have him on my property again, even to fix the mess he made.

We had a wall outlet that needed repair. It was repaired quickly and efficiently. We were chit-chatting with the repair man and he said we shouldn't use a particular space heater with our older house wiring. We appreciated his candidness. He also checked all lighting fixtures, inside and outside. Some he quickly repaired. However, we had one fixture that was on the second floor above our garage, illuminating the driveway. It hadn't worked for years. It took the repair man some time to figure out what was going on but he kept at it. Turns out when we had some plumbing done in the garage the plumber had cut some electrical lines. We were most definitely impressed he tracked it down and figured it out. We will definitely hire

I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed working with

. He listens to what I want, makes suggestions and does what I ask without complaint, eye-rolling or sexist comments like I have had with other people.
San Jose Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is my go-to guy for all of the things I either need done or need help doing.
He lets me help and teaches me as we go along so I get better at fixing things for myself and learning. He is creative and intelligent and a pleasure to work with. He works to my standard and never complains when I want something done a certain way. He cleans up after himself and is cheerful, reliable, patient and communicative. I cannot recommend

Although

arrived late due to traffic, he quickly responded to my texts. He then made up for it by staying a bit later and not charging me for it.

went above and beyond with each job that he did. After fixing lights, he washed the fixtures. He was very clean, explained issues that I should keep an eye on in the future and he made thoughtful suggestions on how best to handle repairs - fix it or buy a new one.

was very helpful as we were trying to organize and get our project started; however, due to restrictions in availability we did not use their services. We will continue to keep them in mind for the future though.
