"
and his crew have done several jobs for me including installing a new interior door, re-tileing my back porch and several other projects." He has also referred me to a painter, plumber, and electrician who have done work for me as well. I am very happy with all of his work and his referrals have proved to be excellent.

"Mr.
was punctual and honest. I called him this morning and he happened to be available today. He came out and I thought he was going" to give me an estimate and he ended up doing the job. He was such a truly "nice" person. So sincere. He went and got what he needed and came back and did the job. He worked every minute he was in my home and did an outstanding job!! He is going to do a couple more jobs for me. He is truly a man of his word. He told me the cost up front and he kept his word!!! I would "HIGHLY" recommend Integrity Homes Services................the company name truly fits!!!

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.

and
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
are without a doubt the best team that I've ever worked with on a renovation. Some people you just know that you're going to like working with. From day 1 through the end of the project we had a real partnership working together to create the most attractive and quality room at a reasonable cost.
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
are both very skilled craftsmen and, what's more, very nice guys. They take justifiable pride in the quality of their work; it is simply superb.
My wife and I are very satisfied with the value that
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
gave for the cost. No doubt someone else would do a renovation for less but many who would charge much more would not have performed such professional and careful work. They do all the work themselves drawing on their excellent contacts for some other specialized components (granite countertops, cabinets and shower glass, for example) . They don't juggle multiple projects but stuck with my project day after day until it was done. No wondering if the contactor will be here today with this team. They showed up ready to work every morning pausing only to patiently answer our questions or to offer recommendations when we weren't sure of the best approach.
They were also very careful to put down canvas covers to protect our floors and cleaned up their work every afternoon.
Our master bathroom turned out beautifully thanks to them. We have already enthusiastically recommended
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to friends and neighbors who have admired their craftsmanship.
I have the utmost confidence in both
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and wouldn't think of asking anyone else to do my next renovation and, if they weren't available, I'd wait until they were.

lHunny-Doo's exceeded our expectations. Our home was definitely overdue for a complete paint job and a few exterior repairs. The owner of the company,
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, returned our call the same day. He even came to our house later that day to see our house and review what we needed done. He pointed out suspected rotted fascia boards and told us that his bid would include any repairs to the fascia that might be needed.
A few days later he emailed a quotation to us - the price seemed reasonable considering that it included repairs and paint. Although he originally stated that it may be a month before he could get started, he was able to start the job the following week.
His crew started on a Monday - they were on the job the entire week. Although they had to go to great lengths to find the correct fascia to match the existing, they did it. They were very friendly and took great care with every detail. As well, we appreciated the top quality paint

and his crew at

Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
arrived on time. he worked for 4 hours & charged me $215. After he left, the toilet still ran constantly after flushing. The front outside faucet was fixed with a washer. The back faucet , which he exchanged a washer, still had a steady stream of water coming out of it--I could not turn it off. it seemed completely unchanged since he "fixed" it. The hole --he shoved the insulation back up & said it as "in real tight". I called
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, the owner, & told him the toilet still ran , the back faucet still leaked, & in a day or 2, the insulation fell back out by the hole. I fixed the leaking toilet myself by adding a metal piece to the gizmo over the flapper-it just needed weight to make it stop leaking. sort of a rig job. Shoudn't it be fixed right??

sent another guy out to "check on things" The guy,

was able to shut off the faucet in the back but I cannot turn it off that hard.

came back out to fix the unrepaired things on Friday, 8/28, about 2 weeks after the original repairs.

told me I would get a "free hour " of labor.
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was in the back yard for an hour before he went to the hardware store to get the items to fix the faucet & hole. He finished in 2 more hours. The faucet looks nice, & works well, he put a board & new insulation over the hole & it looks very well done. My problem is he overcharged me by $25. Also, I don't think it could have taken a whole hour for him to figure out what to buy & get at the hardware store-so there went my "free hour" of labor. All in all, I paid $475, as
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is returning $25 overcharge. I was very unhappy because everything could/should have been fixed the first time out. I feel $475 for this entire small fixes is l too much! I am an older single woman & feel taken advantage of.
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is very nice-however, he himself should have really come out & fixed the things free or almost free plus I'd pay for the parts, as I think 2 more hours of labor is too much. Does this sound like 6 hours of work to you? Had someone competent come out & fixed everything RIGHT the first time, would have may paid for 1 more hour of labor, but not have 2 whole charges like this. The free hour was a joke---it shouldn't take 1 whole hour of looking at a faucet & a hole to figure out what to go buy at the hardware story. Sorry, not happy .Not a bargain at all. Like I said, I feel ripped off & overcharged.
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
offered me another free hour of labor,but I'm afraid that it will just end up being another wasted hour & I'll get ripped off again. he needs to make sure his people are all COMPETENT & ABLETO FIX THINGS!!! Oh,& don't overcharge,either.

I contacted
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
through the message center on Angie's List and he immediately wrote back so we could visit about the project. He came to my house to see the dog kennel and gave me an estimate on the spot. He and his son returned on our agreed upon day and they completed the roof in one day for less money than his estimate!
The job was done well and is fulfilling the purpose for the project. Both
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his son were personable, professional and very competent.
One of
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's strengths is his customer service. He was on time and honest. He was respectful of my home and yard and cleaned up after his work was done.
I highly recommend
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and will use his business again without hesitation.

I was soooo relieved to meet
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and have him do our work. This was the 3rd or 4th attempt to get a handyman to come to our home and give us an estimate for various relatively small projects, schedule quickly and get it done right.
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his helper did exactly that! Several others wanted to estimate based on photos, and more photos, and still others immediately suggested we replace the large sliding glass door that wasn't sliding correctly.
Hanover Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came the same day I called, as he was in the area. He gave me a very fair price about 2 days later, and he finished the work with very high quality less than a week later. We are thrilled.

First, he came to the house and looked at all of the items we needed to have done. Then he told us he would email us a bid. The bid was very detailed and professionally done. We accepted as the price was below what I would have expected to pay. The showed up on the scheduled day on time and was extremely pleasant and easy to work with. Everything was done as promised and he charged what he said he would. Perfect - Thanks
