"It went great! Nado is wonderful to work with. He's take a real interest in the project and is happy to offer suggestions and even fix existing problems without" needing to be asked. For example, he respackled the room two times before painting it (to correct the shoddy job the previous owner did) just to make sure the new work came out nice. The quality of the work is fantastic as well. He's very knowledgeable about his craft and can handle anything you throw at him (including my crazy ExactTemp valve I had picked out ;-) ) He took care of the plumbing the first day (My condo requires advanced notice to shut off the water so we had to work around their schedule), then spent about 2 days for the rest of the work. He took care of disposing everything and gave the room a good vacuum when he was done. I wish I could post a picture of the bathroom but you'll have to take my word that it came out awesome.

"
and his team were great to work with. Our new home lacked an office space which made it less functional for us. My husband found a picture" where the space in a two story entryway was used to create an upstairs loft. I had another contractor come out to provide an estimate and they could not even envision what we were asking to be done. When
came to view our space, he immediately started looking at the proportions and measuring the space! I feel very fortunate for us to have found someone who could help us take our idea and make it concrete. We did not realize it at the time, but the space was fairly small and narrow, so it could not be used to add an extra room, but with
's help we were able to use space from the oversized master bedroom that abutted the area to create an office and also add closet space. Our ideas at the time were not fleshed out, because we were not sure it could be done.
was instrumental in helping us to decide how we wanted to use the space and the practical realities of what could be done. He was a great communicator and ensured that the details were discussed and executed deliberately.
also created custom bookshelves for the new hallway. He was very up front about the fact that we could buy bookshelves off the rack to put in the space for much less, but we wanted something permanent and also something that could be bolted to the wall studs for safety.
is meticulous about the work that is done and will fix anything that is not done to a high standard. I appreciated that he took the time to ensure that the paint work both in the rooms and on the custom shelving was done right. There were some delays with the project when there was staff turnover or if someone was ill. However, I was not on a specific timeline, so it was more important to me that the work be done correctly than that it met a deadline. It took me a bit of time to write this review, because I was pregnant at the time and things did not settled down until recently, but I definitely wanted to provide feedback on the great job that was done.

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.

showed up exactly on time. He knew what to do with every problem he encountered. He didn't charge me for materials (i.e., boards, nails, screws, & caulk). These were materials he had left over from previous projects he has done. He charged me a very reasonable amount for two and 3/4 hours of work. He saved me hours of time because he knows what he is doing! His quality is excellent. My garage door now has a perfect, total seal.

Excellent. Mr.
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
called in reply to a message I had left and scheduled a time to come by. He called to confirm the appointment and arrived on time. He was thoughtful in assessing what I asked to be done and making sure the details were agreed upon, such as the location of the punching bag and the thickness of the wood that I wanted on top of the cabinets. All of the work was done very well. He provided information about why my floor

was coming apart and details on the sizing that I should look for if I wanted to replace it. Small details like that are so very appreciated. I was pleased to be able to get so many things I had on my 'to do' list done and will definitely call again for future work.

Awful experience. I found
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
on Angies List and had the come to my mother's home in DC to install ceramic in her foyer. We had a very tough time communicating with the technician being that his English was very poor. The floor was install no where close to the pattern we showed him. From the moment the job was completed the grout started to pop out and the tiles started to move. We just recently had to have the job torn out and redone being that it had become a trip hazard. It was a total loss and i would never use them again.

came over on a Saturday, right on time and in spite of the weather. He undid previous work poorly done by another contractor, and focused on making it right. He took his time, explained everything he was doing, and really put in the effort to get it done right. Even for a small job, I really appreciated his attention to detail, and will be calling him back for any future work.

even went above and beyond the required service by also cleaning some of my brickwork that was stained. I give this company my strongest recommendation. I believe that it would be very difficult to get the quality and level of service that they provide anywhere else.

so, I tried...no response/call backs,,,, finally wrote a letter asking for at least the courtesy of a response and understanding why he kept us waiting that long and now will not be responsive or professional. It is truly difficult to understand.

replaced 2 outside doors, and fixed a third one. The support under the door framing of one outside door was completely rotten due to a bad installation done earlier, that let water come in to the frame.
Wilmington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did not take any shortcut, and made sure he replaced the structural support and not just the cosmetics. He proceeded in a very professional way, and got to the bottom of the issue, replacing the door, frame and supporting wood structure underneath. Seeing how well it worked, we also asked him to fix an issue we had with hardwood floor, which is did very nicely. Definitely a professional who goes to the bottom of the issues and does a great job ... would recommend him anytime.
