Nervous to knock a hole in your ceiling?
Dear Angie: Who can I hire to prepare my patio for spring, and what should it cost? — Eugenia C., District Heights, Maryland
Renovating and maintaining a bathroom becomes much easier with the right tools.
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 -
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 Bull Shoals
THEN HE CUT DOWN ONE OF THE MAILBOX POSTS, BUT HAD TO RECHARGE HIS SAW. LEFT TO PURCHASE HOSE HE NEEDED FOR NEXT REPAIR. WHILE HIS SAW RECHARGED, HE DUG OUT THE DAMAGED FLEX HOSE.; REPLACED WITH NEW HOSE,; TOOK A PICTURE OF THE UNDERGROUND CONNECTION BEFORE HE REPLACED THE DIRT. VERY SATISFIED WITH THIS SERVICE PROVIDER; WILL DEFINITELY USE THIS PROVIDER AGAIN. IT'S SO NICE TO KNOW SOMEONE YOU CAN CALL WHEN YOU NEED A REPAIR.
We settled on a date about a week and half out, which we thought was not back considering we were buying a "deal" and set about making our punch list. We had roughly 10 items on the list a few larger, and most just small tasks. We figured we would see how far he got and make sure we had the tasks and supplies needed for the task just in case. We made sure to be available for that time window and cut short another appointment that day in order to make sure we were here at the time
Unfortunately, it appears we were the only one who prioritized that time. 59 minutes after the scheduled window began, we had given up on him coming. He had not called to alert us he was running late. In fact, when he came to the door, he didn't even mention that he was an hour late until we said something to him about it. He was, of course, apologetic, but I thought it concerning that he didn't appear to have it on his mind until we say we were concerned he wasn't coming. That's a big red flag for me. I've been late for plenty of meetings in my day. Some controllable, some not. I always address it immediately.
He brought his helper (his pre-teen daughter who was a lovely girl though we had to be concerned with watching out dogs to ensure they didn't
At this point, an hour into the window, we knew we would not be able to get all the handyman tasks addressed but pushed forward to get a few of what we wanted to get done taken care of and figured we would need to still find another handyman for the rest of the jobs. Our priority was the TV Rack. We have had this mounted in the past by professionals and most recently my two brothers. They also packaged the rack for us and we had all parts. 70 minutes + into the 2 hour window, we still did not have the TV rack mounted. But we did have a lot of discussion among him and his daughter about things unrelated to the job. At this point, he was pushing to leave since we were at the end of the 2 hour window that he was 1 hour late for and we asked him to just drill a hole to hang one mirror and two holes to hang a piece of artwork and we scrapped the entire rest of the list for him. I ended up hiring another handyman to do all the rest of the work and it was less than the "deal" I got via Angies list to do the 7 things. So...I was disappointed overall with the experience. I thought he was super nice but really lacking in appreciation for being so late in arriving. I think I would not hire him again--NOT because he did not do quality work but because if I am scheduling a time window and planning around it, I want someone coming who can also make that window and respect the time stated. Or at least call to let me know he was way behind and give us a change to reschedule.
