"The man that came out did not work for
on Call but was a subcontractor. He was dressed very unprofessional and came into my hEouse with muddy" boots and tracked mud all through my house. He reaked of cigarette smoke and body odor. I showed him the work to be done and he began to tell me that he was going to have to do a lot of extra work. I began to get a very uneasy feeling about him. He said he would go out to figure my quote. he was outside for at least 20 minutes and after several cigarettes and numerous phone calls he came back in. His quote was more than $1500 higher than all the other bids. I asked him to leave. He left and his truck left an oil spot on my driveway and my landscaping was littered with cigarette butts.
on Call is not a company I would recommend to a friend much less anyone else. Unprofessional, and WAY overpriced!!! DO NOT USE!!!!

"Went very well.
is a Texas licensed contractor. Very professional, dependable, and kind. Communicates well about work in progress. Definitely" our recommendation, he is not the cheapest but does quality work and that is important! This is the second home
has done work for us, both times satisfied. We are moving again next month to another home and have arranged for some work to be done there also. Workers are very careful and cover or tape-off rooms with plastic to keep down any dust caused by the project; they cover and tape-down the floor traffic areas with cloth runners; and clean up before leaving each day. Have had part of a wall replaced and honestly couldn't see where work was done, just a perfect match. Workers do their work quietly and find it very easy to have them working in our home. We think
is a "

Hiring a handyman is a great way to get small projects done around the home, but many homeowners wonder: How much does it cost to hire a handyman?

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.

Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was honest and and just the expert I needed to get the job done. I had a large section of a wall and ceiling that were badly damaged from water. After the damage was removed, we discussed the only viable option -- fix the leak, most likely from the 100+ year old chimney in the center of the house, before it rains again! Two days later, the damage was repaired.

STOLE $ 2,800 I paid by Certified Cashier Check for A New Furnace and New Duct Work. The Short Story: I never got my New Duct Work or my New Furnace that I paid $ 2,800 up front for.
The Job Was Never Completed.
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did remove my old furnace. They also "reinstalled" my 65 year old leaking gas shut off valve WITHOUT A CAP ONTO THE END OF THE GAS PIPE ! Dumb Idiots.
Over time, I kept smelling this natural gas, lots of gas was leaking down there into my basement area.
I had to call the NICOR GAS COMPANY Emergency Line. I told them I had been smelling gas in my basement for a few weeks.
NICOR found a leaking 65 year old shutoff valve, which NICOR removed, and then Nicor Service capped off the end of the pipe with a "pipe cap" in accordance with the NFPA Gas Code. ***** Long Story:
The owner of
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
HEATING & COOLING is owned by
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
LINK, who conducts his business right out of his home.
On 08-14-14 I entered into a written and signed agreement with LINK for the following goods and services:
1)) Remove my old Furnace and Ductwork and dispose of the same.
2)) Install New Ductwork and New Furnace for $ 5,100 Dollars. A $ 450 portion of the above mentioned total of $ 5,100 amount was to install some additional ductwork up to my second floor house.
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Link carefully looked over this additional work opportunity, and readily submitted this additional $ 450 package to me which I agreed to accept and pay for.
The written and signed agreement between myself and the " Contractor " was on "Professional Looking Forms" that were provided by
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Link.
Contractor agreed in writing to have the work completed " FINISH SEPTEMBER 3rd" over a 5 day working period consisting of a Wed. Thurs. Wed. Thurs. and Wed. time frame.
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Link said at the beginning of his sales pitch to me and my wife . . . " you will pay me 1/3 at the beginning of the job, 1/3 during the middle of job, and the final 1/3 payment to me at the end of the job."
As the time of our signing of the documents arrived, contractor/
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Link said "I will need Two Thousand Eight Hundred Dollars " (($2,800 is 54% of the $ 5,100 total))
I went to my Credit Union and obtained a Cashiers Check for the amount of $ 2,800 and gave it to
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Link.
The 1st day of work, Wed. the removal of the old furnace went well. It took 3 men a total of 7.5 man hours. ( 2 1/2 hours each )
The 2nd day Thursday, only
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Link came to my home to " Overview the Job" and to tell me how his workers would install the ductwork.
No workers showed up on this day, and no work was performed. It was a day that was wasted.
Only
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Link's jaw was working on this day.
INTERESTING NOTE: Right after the 2nd day Thursday discussion as I mention here,
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Link left me a cell phone voice message that said ..... "I will come over to get a check for $300 Dollars for the additional work"
This is a scam for sure I was thinking in my mind.
I returned a voice message to LINK and told him "We are going to keep it

I never did hand over any more money to

The 3rd day Wed. , 11 Total Man Hours of work was performed this day by 2 workers. (5 1/2 hours each)
They beat on my limestone walls and brick walls in my basement with 16 ounce

trying to break stones and bricks to clear some space for 3 cold air return boxes (small). At times they struck their pry bars with their
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
pretending that they were holding cold chisels in their hands.
I knew at this moment in time that this is not a real company. They didn't even posses the most
Bay Minette Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
tools.
On this day they made Quantity = 2 1/2 cold air return boxes. They never actually completed the 3 total return air boxes that they started to build.
NOTE: Later, when I hired a reputable HVAC Company to complete the job, the replacement contractor had to rework the cold air return boxes because the "Grills" would not fit onto them.
They were not measured correctly and were not bent over properly at 90 degrees, sharp.
The 4th Day Thurs. On this work day, 2 workers worked a total of 5.5 Man Hours (( 2 1/4 hours each)) attempting to clean 2 old supply ducts that went from the basement to the 2nd floor and were to remain in service.
Then without warning, the workers announced that "

At that point they stopped all work, and they both left the job for the rest of the day.

We were very pleased with the overall process. We have used many handymen in the past and always have a hard time getting them to show up on time or even complete jobs at times. He was upfront with what he charges (35/h or 250/day + materials). Highly recommend him to anyone.

and his crew showed up earlier than predicted and was very kind and professional to interact with. They did a quick and thorough job and provided very reasonable rates for this service. While I understand that they do not always do snow removal as a service, if their work ethic during this job reflects an overall work ethic, I would not hesitate to recommend them for handyman work as well.
