"We were finally re-doing our kitchen and bathroom which we were very excited about. However, this experience was far from pleasant. Before the granite countertops" could be installed, the sinks had to be removed. He uninstalled the sinks for both the
and the bathrooms. The very next day our ceiling was leaking through our kitchen (our upstairs bathroom is right above the kitchen) I called him and he sent someone to fix the problem the next day. However, it left a stain on our kitchen ceiling which he said he would fix- never did and the stain is STILL on our kitchen ceiling. He also installed wooden corbels and said he would finish them at a later date but did not finish staining them or properly installing them (they are not properly installed on the island). A few weeks after installing the countertops he installed the backsplash and said he would come back in a couple days to finish the rest of his work. He never did. I called him multiple times and he never called back or answered. I couldn't even leave a voicemail because his voicemail box was full! We also had to remove our cupboard above our
to install a microwave. We also had to install lighting fixtures in the kitchen that were ordered. We also had to fix our backdoor. We also had to paint our bathrooms. Mr.
knew about all of these projects when we first met with him. Very unprofessional to leave a job unfinished and not respond to your customers. If he was "too busy" to finish his work he should have at least informed us and finished what he started- the wooden corbels. Not to mention the work he did do for us, we experienced similar situations where he would not answer his phone for weeks at a time and not let us know when he was returning.

"
and his team were very professional and offered us several opitions to control the cleanup.
and team were on time" 99% of the time. They worked very hard and did an excellent job. They were very polite and at times very funny which made the time go by faster. I would recommend them to anyone who want a professional job done. The price of the job never changed. I will use them in the future since there are other jobs that needs to be done in my mother's house, which was built in 1959.

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.

did an excellent job installing new screens and a new door on my porch and
painting the outside trim in the porch area. His price was fair and he is very reliable, coming when he says he will
be there and finishing the job promptly. I definitely intend to use him for future projects on my house.

pretty much defines
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's work ethic and business plan, except that I would go a bit further and add "integrity". He arrived precisely when he said he would. The mailbox had been vandalized by some kids, and the post was broken off at the base. I was unable to remove the remainder of the post, as the concrete was too heavy. Although I'm not sure they expected to have to remove the old post,
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his colleague dug out the old concrete with the broken piece of post attached. Once the new hole was dug, they determined we hadn't provided them with enough concrete to finish the job.
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
generously offered to drive to the local box store and purchase the additional concrete mix. He didn't assess me a trip charge, just the price of the concrete. After less than 90 minutes (including the trip to the hardware store), the new mailbox post was installed, leveled, and the hardware attached. They re-filled the small garden surrounding it with the wheelbarrow of dirt I had removed the day prior, raked it level, and swept the entire area.

was friendly and professional, he negotiated a fair price, the job was performed perfectly, and the site left pristine when he was finished. Moreover, he responded immediately when we initially called him about the job.
I will not hesitate to hire him in the future. Furthermore, I will eagerly recommend his services to friends and neighbors. He epitomizes what great business should be.

Everything went fine. They were very professional and easy to work with. They listened to what I wanted and offered me option when available. They had some curves thrown at them, they outlined my options and asked what I wanted to do before they continued working.
Folks: This is a GREAT deal. 16 man hours for $245. If I have another assembly task(s) that I find intinimdating, or simply don't have the time to mess with it, THESE are the men I will call. You should too. :)

they showed up during the two hour time window given. Both friendly started setting up it took a while but no big deal, after an hour they told me they needed to get a bigger saw said they would be back in about 30 min. 1 hr and 15 min later they got back, set up again and told me the 4 hrs of time i had purchased started then.
after that things slowed, in the end it took them almost 1 45 min to make one cut which i understand can be frustrating,but for me also, as this was passed the time i had purchased so after 2 30 hrs after the time i had purchased i got an additional bill of 237.50 which also included a saw rental which i was not told about, i thought it was their saw. i kind of expected a break since it took sooo long to get 1 cut done. don't get me wrong it looks good but i think i got charged way too much for what i got . i have done construction for a long time and would not have charged 75 an hr if i couldnt get an angle right after that long. but once again both super nice guys i think they just had a bad day, just wish i wasnt the one paying for it

The experience was great all around. When I first requested an estimate,
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
responded immediately. We scheduled a day to drop by to check out the concrete and his concrete guy,

showed up early the next day and had the concrete segment complete by noon. It looks great.

arrived for an estimate quickly and professionally and was actually early to the appointment, instead of late as most contractors tend to be. All work was done professionally, quickly and on time as promised!

completed two projects for me, a half bath remodel and the installation of a sliding glass door. In order for my half bath to be remolded all of the walls/framing were knocked down and re-built to allow for the additional space I requested, the flooring was removed and replaced, the toilet/plumbing was moved to better suit the additional space, shut off valves for the toilet and sink were replaced, an old window was removed, a new door was added. For my sliding glass door, an existing window was removed, the wall was re-framed, the door was installed, and he even built me an outdoor step to get from the slider to the patio. I cannot stress enough that all of the work was done to perfection, quickly and professionally. I did not feel as if I had to watch over this contractor’s shoulder when he was working at our home (as I do with others) to ensure that the work was done correctly and with quality. I could not be happier with the work that was done and look forward to having this contractor complete more work for me in the future - in which I will post updated reviews!

was punctual for our appointment
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
28. He was pleasant and seemed knowledgeable. We have a number of small unfinished projects we would like to get done, along with a larger project in the kitchen to replace the counters and do some cabinet work as well as a couple of outdoor tasks involving the eavestrough and minor siding repairs. I had been very clear with
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
that the estimate should be broken out by job, for example the exterior projects as one sum, kitchen separate, and smaller odd jobs as its own sum.
When i had not received the estimate for the work within a week, I contacted the office and was told
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had the estimate in his truck and would send it through. Nothing arrived. We had a death in the family so I did not contact the office again until yesterday, only to have them call today and ask about what work I wanted done. I explained that
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had been here a month ago and I was still waiting for the quote. Later this afternoon I received the quote for $6400, but it was just one sum, not broken out as I requested so I have no idea how much the kitchen work is as compared to the eavestrough etc. and overall the total seemed very high to me. I wrote back and asked for the quote as I requested it a month ago, no response yet. Either way, we are going to use someone else. If getting an accurate quote is this challenging I doubt I have the patience to deal with managing them for an actual job. It's too bad - we could have been good clients as neither of us are handy and we would much rather pay for good work than try to bumble along on our own.
