"
did many repairs on my personal home. We were getting the house ready to sell. He painted allot of the interior and all the exterior trim." I might add that part of the trim was on an extremely steep roof because of the pitch of our two story home. He did this at a great price. He painted doorways, put new ceramic tile in my bathrooms, installed new shower doors, etc. He was not only reasonable, but extremely reliable and at a reasonable cost. I have since used him to do repairs on several of my rental homes. He has done roof repairs, drywall and sheetrock, etc. He is now doing repairs on my office. He does a terrific job. Use him. You will not be dissapointed.

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.

Mr.
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his partner arrived on time and immediately went to work figuring out the best way to install the A/C in the window. The outside support that came with the A/C unit did not work with my window, so Mr.
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his partner built some legs to hold up the A/C unit on the outside of my window. The legs are very well made and unobtrusive. He did not charge me for the wood he used to build the legs, and also did not charge me for the time he went over what I had originally purchased! I am VERY happy with his services and will DEFINITELY use him in the future!

I'd been searching for months for a reliable and trustworthy remodeler. One had come and wrecked the bathroom and never showed up again because he had another job and did not have a license to operate nor insurance. Leaving the bathroom inoperable. I saw a commercial from Angie and decided to join. A customer service rep from Angie heard me out and suggested three of their contractors. I decided on
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
given how quickly he got back to me and came to see the bathroom. We agreed on an estimate and he delivered on it. His price was very competitive. He told me step by step the process. He obtained all the permits and licenses much quicker than others had told me it would take. He showed up everyday to work on the bathroom and did an outstanding job. This was the single best contractor I have ever worked with. Whenever he addressed an issue, solved a problem or made an excellent suggestion my husband and I would ask each other in amazement, "Do you believe this guy"?!. He saved us money and delivered a beautiful job. The most extraordinary thing is that he dealt with the incompetent Supplier of fixtures with patience, competence and resourcefulness. He could have just called us and expect us to deal with it but he took it upon himself to deal the issues directly and efficiently. We actually considered taking out an add in the newspaper just to recommend this guy. This kind of competence and professionalism is truly rare in the contracting world and should be celebrated.

called to arrange a time to come over to go over my list in advance. When he arrived I had a pretty big list, and some things I knew would require a second (maybe 3rd) visit.

listened to everything I needed and made some recommendations as well. He also showed me some pictures of some similar work he had done. It was obvious he knew what he was talking about and was very experienced with what he does (which includes plumbing and tile work, among other things. ) He took notes about everything. Unfortunately I was unable to schedule the work at this time because I had last-minute changes in my work schedule. But I look forward to doing future business with "

First, if you want quality workmanship, creative solutions and conscientious neat workers,
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his team are the ones to hire! His prices are reasonable. I have a lot of history owning homes, both my own and rental property. My father was a handyman himself and we have always been very particular with home repairs and construction. As my father aged, I needed to find someone that cared about repairs, remodels as much as us. I couldn't believe it when I found
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
! He offers creative, functional, unique, affordable ideas to tough challenges that will last. "Band-Aid" solutions are not his style. The best part is the work really is perfect! Every time when he finished I would inspect and I couldn't find imperfections. As problems arise, as when you tear a wall down and find water damage, etc, he is quick to point out the problems and offers solutions. I trust him and his judgment to do the right thing and point out problems as they arise. I have used him for the last 2 years now and have found the quality is consistent. He does take his time to do the work right. If you are about getting the job done right, and not rushing through it, I highly recommend

I wouldn't call him again because he waited until just before he was due and then called. He didn't even offer to make another time or recommend anyone else. The price he quoted was fair, but he said he was unable to do the job because his back was out.

was very prompt, he even called to see if he could come earlier. I had a list of things that needed to be brought up to standards. After looking at the list, he went right to work.
1. He removed the toilet, discarded the damaged wax ring, and installed a new one and secured the toilet back to the floor.
2. Our washer/dryer combination (washer over dryer) had an out- dated cord on it which could have been a fire hazard. In order to get to the cord he had to move it out of a confined space, not an easy task! It was amazing to see how quickly he moved the
unit, installed the new cord and had it back in it's place.
3. We have a motion light on our front porch that had the wires exposed to the elements. (another potential fire hazard) He shut off the electricity to the house and removed the light, fixed the wires and replaced the light so that no wires were exposed to
the elements.
4. In our attic was a mess of wires coming from all areas and laying in a bundle on the floor. He made sure the the wires were
connected correctly and then enclosed them into a junction box. Another safety hazard fixed.
We were very satisfied with his courtesy, promptness, ability to do various tasks and highly recommend him to our friends!
