"
was responsive and easy to work with. He gave a prompt estimate and started the job when he said he would. The construction went smoothly" and had no problems with the inspector. Just as important, he stood behind his work. When a nail head popped on a board,
came the next day to fix the issue. No other problems have developed. He built one solid deck. If you look at the framing under the deck, it is actually over constructed so that it will last for years if not decades. This was a real pro job with minimal fuss, no high-pressure and good prices.

"Very punctual. Great communication. Gave me clear advice about not hanging some shelving that seemed destined to just come down--I didn't get the sense he" was trying to get out of something--he was genuinely concerned that my kids might pull the shelves down. His level of quality was amazing. He did jobs I just couldn't do on my own. Came very well prepared.

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.

Outside,
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
worked on several projects including repairing 2 fence gates that also needed replacement boards, re-attaching a 2nd floor shutter (and he spot painted it too), and put a full window screen in on a 2nd floor (had to be done from the outside).
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
also cut down a couple of very thick honeysuckle at the root (I had already cutback the branches). Inside,

put up 6 curtains rods and 1 picture that was a bit tricky because of where it was placed.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was very professional, making helpful suggestions. Originally was scheduled for 1 day but because the gate repair was more extensive than anticipated once he got into it, he returned to finish the remainder of my list on a second day.
I would definitely recommend

for your handyman needs and will be calling on him again.

We were very pleased. I called Monday morning and scheduled the visit for Tuesday. After discussing whether they could paint the wood (the trim was on the second level of our house,
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
moved it back a day to give us time to get the paint. Scheduling was very easy and professional.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did arrive on the date scheduled. I had left the office a message that I would be in a training all day and to call my wife if any issues. They actually listened to the message and called her to give her an update.
The repair work looks great. They confirmed when they were done and sent us the receipt by tomorrow morning. We would definitely use them again.
The only hiccup we encountered is that we were told we didn't have to be home to have the work done, so neither of us took off of work. However, they didn't tell us that they would need access to electricity until they called that morning when they realized it was a problem. Thankfully our neighbor let them use theirs, but a heads up about that would have been good.

Replaced a garbage disposal. Arrived late. Fee is $1.00 per minute. Left at 3PM for lunch and returned at 8PM. Didn't finish the job until 10PM. Upon replacing a part in one toilet, caused a leak. She did not fix the leak before leaving. She asked for a bowl to catch the water leaking from the toilet.

I have been doing business with these guys since the were called Handyman on Demand.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, the president of the company is a great guy to do business with. He is quick to come out and give a quote for the job or jobs requested. Most recently I contracted them to remodel two of my bathrooms. The work that they did came out amazing and just as I had requested. There were no surprises with extra costs that were not disclosed to me before work was done and he gave me all the receipts for the materials bought.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his colleagues are very knowledgeable, skilled and professional. He checked the status of the job daily and gave me updates of the progress that was done each day. He and his colleagues provided me with valuable insight and suggestions so that I could make an informed decision regarding the jobs I requested. They were also very patient and understanding when I changed my mind about something or added extra jobs that I wanted done. When the projects were completed he sent out a housekeeping team to clean my home in all the areas they worked in. Now that is what I call taking care of customers. They made the stresses of remodeling almost nonexistent. I will continue to do business with
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his colleagues as long as they are around.

I had bought an Angie's deal from
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, paying $99 for the work of 1 person for 4 hours or the work of 2 people for 2 hours. The owner,
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, had worked with me in trying to get a date when the weather would cooperate for the work and he was flexible in working with me around my work schedule and other obligations. He came out about 1 week before the work was done and I showed him what I needed done. He made recommendations as to material. He was the one who actually noticed that there was a corner of the patio where the soil had been washed away and was probably the cause of slight sinking of the patio where it meets the house foundation. He recommended a fix for that, which I agreed to. He advised me as to the type of caulking I needed and said he would get the concrete for the repair of the foundation since he knew what product would work best.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and

showed up at the appointment time on the day of the work.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
said that
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
would install the French drain while he took care of another small job elsewhere.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did a super job with the drain and hooked the downspout into the new drain so I wouldn't have drainage hose running on top of the group. I found out that
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had only worked for
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
for 4 days but that he had done landscape work when living in Florida.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
tested the drain, put the landscape fabric back down, and raked the rocks back onto the fabric. He did an excellent job of cleaning up. As a bonus,
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
brought a hosta that looked like it had been separated from a larger hosta and
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
planted it at the corner of the patio and house to absorb any water in the area. It seemed that
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's job took longer because
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
finished before
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
returned so I think there was some downtime.

caulked around the joints between the brick and siding while

Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
also caulked the joints between the concrete around the house and the foundation.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
also patched the cracks in my foundation, which was very time intensive. The foundation looks so much better and I think is in better condition because
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did such an outstanding job filling in the cracks.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
started work at 9:00AM and finished around 7:00PM. He took a short lunch break and a few breaks while working but worked steadily. He did a nice job of cleaning up . I would hire
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
again for their workmanship. The only criticism I have of
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is their business side of the business. I didn't receive a detailed proposal of the work from
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
(I'm partly to blame for not insisting on one) but we did go through the details of the work to be done verbally. Next time, I will insist on a written proposal. I knew that the work was going to exceed the $99 deal I had already paid for.
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
provided me an email of the amount over the $99 I owed but I really couldn't match it to a proposal. Like I said, my bad for not insisting on a written proposal. I did a few calculations and determined that the additional amount over the $99 was reasonable, especially since I had observed how hard
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
worked to do a good job. I think
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
are both talented workmen. Hopefully,
Centerville Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
will perfect the business side so that people have a written proposal to compare with actual costs because I think he does a good job.
