"This job was not easy because the fan/light had to be hung from a vaulted ceiling approximately 13' off the ground. They had to construct a special box, mount" that securely to the ceiling, and then hang the fan. It is working fine one year later.

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.

is really good at what he does. He works with minimal direction (a good thing) and is very clever at coming up with fixes. He is punctual, professional and fast. This is the second time I've had him over and it won't be the last! Highly recommended.

did first class work. He did exactly the things I wanted done and did them cheerfully, even though some of the jobs were a less than fun to do. He brought his own tools, had a professional manner, was knowledgeable about each aspect of the work.
When I couldn't find the kind of doors I wanted, he drove around town until he located what I wanted. I had searched and had given up on ever finding replacement doors in my 1950's house.
It was a pleasure and relief to find someone who was willing and then able to do the various projects in my house. He gave helpful suggestions if needed and finished all the work in a timely manner. I will call him again when I have more house repair and maintenance to have done.

A craftsman who takes pride in his work and offers excellent workmanship and professionalism - highly recommended. The fence is probably the straightest fence in Slidell.

It took a long time between buying the deal and actual installation. (They are booked for weeks and weeks). The installers/handymen are always nice and polite and they never leave a mess.

It did not go. We had an appointment for 4pm today. He did not show up. I called at 4.30 pm to inquire. At 6pm I received a call back that he thought our appointment was between 4-5pm. I might have been more flexible if that call had come at 5pm. But all we have to go on to pick a service provider is first impressions. To call an HOUR after an appointment shows lack of respect for my time. It's a shame. Because I have money to spend on repairs and renovations. It'll go to someone who is reliable.

was very professional and displayed a strong sense of detail. He explained we needed to get the bars and did not charge us any additional charges as he had to wait for us to get this. He was extremely helpful in providing suggestions as well to the best place to install in the shower. When the job was complete he cleaned up and ensured we were completed satisfied. I would definitely use their services again for other projects and highly recommend to others.

about the fact that a shower door was leaking in a rental unit of mine and possibly was hung improperly. He said as long as the shower door was intact, reinstalling should do the trick but the design of these types of doors was defective.. I told him I have another identical one in an adjoining rental and a piece on the track is missing. I said we might have to replace the door on that one, and maybe both would be eventually replaced, I wasn't sure. I said maybe the doors they make now are better designed. We agreed he would come out and rehang the first one and look at the second. I agreed to what he wanted to charge me to do that and let him choose when. I went and got print outs of replacement shower doors for the second one. The day of the appointment he started texting me before 7am. He wanted to know if I got the replacement shower door and or parts to fix them. I answered, that wasn't what we had said we were doing. He then said maybe I should reschedule until I had the shower door and or parts. I replied, I am not qualified to do that, that's why I called you. I asked that he call me because we were misunderstanding each other. He called sometime later and I missed the call. I immediately tried calling back and texting for over 2 hours. I drove the 30 minutes to the appointment and waited one and a half hours, (he wanted a window for his arrival). He didn't show up, call, or text. When he did finally TEXT me, after I texted him that I was going to leave a review of his behavior, he was rude and said I was just going to waste his time. He said it wasn't worth his time if I didn't have everything to fix both doors. I am just dumbfounded, I even have texts confirming appointment for rehanging the door, he talked me into rehanging the door, I started the call to him with "I need a licensed contractor to replace a shower door that I think was improperly installed because it doesn't seem to fit the space"
