"They removed the old exterior doors and installed two new ones that I had already purchased. I didn't have all of the parts they needed to install the deadbolt" on one of the doors, but they were able to take care of everything else quickly on one of the coldest days this winter.

Dear Angie: Do handymen bring their own tools? – Wendy H., Spring Lake, North Carolina

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.

We hired

We gave

I called a few people to help me install a new range hood. The first person came and quit the job.
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came in and got it done, despite some challenges due to the unconventional placement of electrical wire and the misalignment of the ducting opening. He's professional, effective, trustable, and willing to handle unexpected challenges (rather than simply quit just like the previous guy). A very good experience from my perspective.

Very satisfied with
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's work. He mounted a TV and provided a quote on some other work we are considering.
Scheduling the work was easy, he was on time, and the TV looks great.
Will likely work with again and would recommend.

Patio door (didn't buy out swing but instead modified door to swing out, not a perfect solution); replaced porch columns (seem to be fine but didn't prime under paint,so started peeling within a year); walked out in middle of bathroom remodel (installed cabinets wrong; poor carpentry work; replaced tub but didn't add concrete base support between tub bottom and slab). He provided only verbal estimates and small handwritten receipts for payments I paid him daily.

It was very easy to make an appointment.
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
arrived to take the notes on what I needed done in my home.
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
were very accommodating when it came to scheduling all the work to be done..I received a call in the morning to let me know the names of the workers who were on their way. The men arrived on schedule .They covered all floors and furniture and were very neat in their work and clean-up. As a female, I was extremely comfortable with them in my home. They were polite, courteous and I must say so patient with my four dogs barking at them. They did a beautiful job.It is so hard to find companies that are honest and reliable and who go above and beyond! Would I use them again? Absolutely. As a matter of fact I have them on the schedule for future work to be done.

Our house has 2
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
windows and odd-shaped roofs, which create several “valleys” for more than 1 foot of ice dams to build up overtime. This job was very tough and took longer than
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
first expected, so he took care of the disaster area first, and then came back another day to finish cleaning the rest of the roof.
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
charged by the hour, plus travel time. He did an excellent job “conquering” the hard-to-reach ice dams way up above on our pitched roofs. He tried really hard to complete a very difficult job. If your roof is not as hard to reach as ours, it would take less time and the cost probably would not be as much. All in all, we are very grateful to him for his excellent work ethics and quality job.
