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. 

COOL!!!  Someone who asks a question actually responds.  Rare.  Love it.  Let us know how things work out.

and his son

were great! They were both very polite; we welcome them both back to our home anytime. They were punctual and completed the work in one day.

even made a Lowe's trip during rush hour because more material was needed. The price was fair and the end product was very well done.
- Steven S.

located the source of the leak and repaired it at a very nominal cost. He did not try to sell me extra stuff. I actually expected toe problem to be worse. He seems to be very honest and of high character.
- Donald H.

I made an appointment approximately 5 days prior to the service date. At the time, they said that they would arrive around 1pm, but that they might need adjust that a bit. No big deal. I called the morning of the service date to see if they were still on schedule. I was told that they would have to push it back to 3:30pm. Then I was told 4pm. After 4pm I was told 4:30pm. At 4:30pm I was told the technician was 30 minutes away. I was still waiting for a technician at 5:30pm. I called them back and said forget about it.
This company "might" do good work, but I'll never know due to their unprofessionalism and lack of punctuality.

came to my house on October 5th and placed knobs on all my cabinets and draws (Approximately 70). He was pleasant, proficient and just did a marvelous job. I am very happy with the work that was completed. I will be using them for all my future work. All a consumer can want is good work provided by good people and
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was certainly that person.

The very nice gentleman who came did not know how to fix the toilet He did not seem so sure about the other things either and because they charge for 2 hours and he could not fix everything, he called his office and let them know he could not do the job and got permission from someone to not charge me. He suggested I buy new parts for the toilet and call them back. I was impressed with the honesty of the
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his feelings of responsibility about not charging me for something he could not do.
A few days later, I messed around with the toilet and fixed it. Therefore, I did not need to order parts and since
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
has a 2 hour minimum, I called a
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
that would only charge for his time by the hour. He fixed the sink and I figured I was done with my issues. A few days later I went on a vacation and when I got home I had a couple of calls from
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
on my machine. They wanted my email address, money for the prior visit and to know if I had received my parts. I got sick when I got home and did not call anybody. Today is the first day I have left the house. When I got home there was a very nasty message from
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, asking for $135.00 for the house call and threatening to send me to a collection agency if I did not immediately pay which was odd because they had not even sent any kind of bill. I called and told them I had been assured that I did not owe them anything for the call since their man could not fix what I had requested and notified them that that I would never call them for anything ever again.
Somehow I feel this will not be the end of this issue.

I had bought a mailbox post,
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, cement, and mailbox and was going to install them myself. I decided that it was a job that was just a little too big for me.
Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was very nice to work with. They arrived a little late but said they had run into road construction on the way. The work was done in about 2 hours and looks beautiful. They did a great job! I will definitely keep them in mind for future work.

Nevada City Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
arrived as planned and found that the post in the fence panel on the other side of the gate was also rusted and needed to be repaired. He advised what the additional cost would be for both posts and proceeded with the work. He did excellent work repairing both posts for a reasonable price.
I would not hesitate to use him again and recommend him to others.
