"I purchased
's Handyman and Maintenance services via a Big Deal offered as a day's work for $199. Since I am in Ohio and needed" the service for a rental property in
during a specific timeframe (3-4 weeks in advance), I first left
a phone message asking if he would be able to provide the service during that timeframe. He did not return the call. A few days later I contacted Angie's List, whose Customer Service Rep offered to put me on hold while calling
. He apologized to Angie's rep, saying he'd been busy but that if I purchased the deal he would call me within 48 hours. No call-back after two additional follow-up messages and 11 days passed, so I requested a refund from Angie's List. If this contractor had returned my call, explaining explained that he had been inundated by too many Angie's List customer responses or that he simply couldn't accommodate my needs for some other legitimate reason, I would have been disappointed but understood. Angie's List does a good job creating many
-wins, so a situation like this one created by
is sad for everyone involved.

did a superb job with my punch list. He was immaculate, meticulous and detailed oriented with all activities. He performed not only my original" request but also went above and beyond with other minor fixes which delighted me.
also saved me time and money by not having to call multiple contractors and is definitely worth the one stop shop. I would highly recommend and will use his services in the near future.

It's not unusual for stucco exterior surfaces to develop cracks. Because stucco requires an individual approach, be careful about who you hire to work on it.

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.

It was near the holiday, but they could have at least given us an
auto-reply or something stating that they were out of the office or when
they'd be back. Assuming they actually were out of the office.
We had just moved into town and needed work fast. They just didn't come through for us.

This is the fifth year we have used
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his crew. They were prompt, courteous, inexpensive and very hard woking. The part we like the most is that we don't have to worry about a quality job. They just show up on time, work hard all day and things look great when they leave.
Can't get any better than that!

We corresponded via email and text with
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
since that is the best way for us to operate. His use of email and text was one of the reasons we chose him from the other handymen on Angie's List.
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came by about a week before starting work to give us a quote. He was courteous and very attentive to our needs. He came up with creative solutions to a few problems that we hadn't considered. When we told
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
that he'd won the bid, we were able to set up service almost immediately. He and his partner came by and laid down tarps to protect the floor and then they went to work. They worked quickly and when we came home from work, everything was clean and the walkways were clear.
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
updated me every night with an email and/or text. He communicated with me via text regarding the exhaust fan in our kitchen which he took home and repaired for us instead of replacing. It's a huge relief to have that done.
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
knew how concerned I was about the quality of work- we had a contractor do some work in our house and to this day I notice everything that was done wrong. Throughout the process he assured me that everything would turn out okay. I trusted him and he came through for us with flying colors. The paint lines are clean, the curtain rods are even, the bathroom caulk looks great. I have no complaints, and believe me I am very picky.

is not the cheapest, but he will get the work done well and without disrupting your life. We are already working on our next list of tasks for him!

We replaced toilet, vanity, sink, faucet, granite countertop, tile, and shelving. Colt did a great job all around from plumbing to tile installation. He is very meticulous about everything. We will definitely use him again.

I've delayed my review of this provider because I wasn't sure what to put for some time. It is a father-son business, which is what I preferred over a larger or contracted company where their employee's just don't care about their work. Most of our communication was done by email, which was great because I am unable to take calls while at work and its just easier to keep track of things in an email for me. I also thought the price was very reasonable and along the lines of what I thought it would cost. The estimate was done and just short of two weeks later, they arrived to install the tile. I had already planned to purchase the tile myself, and was told how much would be needed.
Now for what I didn't like. I have never had tiling placed in my home before, I didn't know what to expect. My estimate was on
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
7th. The job began at 8am on the 20th, but I wasn't advised until the 17th that it would be a multi-day job. This would have been nice to know when I got the original estimate. While the work was being done, I was asked if I had the grout or caulk needed to finish. Again, something I was not told I needed to get myself until the job already started. After the tiling itself had been completed, they needed to come back a third time because the new bolts they brought for the toilet weren't long enough. The estimated time to complete the third day took twice as long as I was told, which I wasn't happy about. It also wasn't very professional to hear the father/son arguing outside my door. Keep it at home please. The shoe moulding that was pulled up to place the tiles and then replaced at the end wasn't really completed either. It wasn't caulked afterwards at the seams or the nails.
Overall, the tiling itself looks nice, but when I am ready to have my kitchen floor redone, I will be seeking another company.

The owner, Miles came to my house the same day I called to repair a doorbell that had not been working. He explained each step he took to determine the exact cause. He quickly found that it was due to a disengaged circuit breaker. He did not charge me a penny.

Wow!!! To say I am impressed is a huge understatement!

I contacted
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
through Angie's List and
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
called that evening to discuss what I was looking for. I have several projects planned for my home so I thought the coupon for $299.00 for a day of painting would serve two purposes: get the painting that needed to be done, done, and also acquaint me with the company.
We arranged a day for the painting for the next week.
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was right on time at 8:15. I showed him what I wanted done and he went right to work. He is incredibly fast and efficient while doing a beautiful job. I initially planned for the back hallway and just the hallway by the entryway (it needed a second coat since it is a deep color), but
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was so fast that he was done with the back hallway/rear entry way before lunch. After lunch he painted the front entryway and that two-story wall, and there were still a couple hours left to the 8 hours, so he was able to apply a second coat of paint to the porch ceiling and to the four porch columns. He finished up right at 8 hours.
Many contractors would work at a speed to get the job done, i.e., work to finish the original request in the allotted time.
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
worked hard all day and finished the original request plus some. That he accomplished as much as he did while doing an excellent job shows that he is a very much a master of his trade. His work ethic is impressive.
I look forward to working with
Alton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
again!
