"The service providers were really nice and helpful. Overall, the job was good (although the clean-up after power washing could have been more thorough). My biggest" frustration was the final cost. Ended up costing $199 (coupon bought here) + $580 (additional). For power washing a driveway, a small backyard and installing some cabinet magnets, I thought this ended up being very steep. Basically it took two workers about 4 hours for everything. Two weeks later, I found out my
was organizing a group buy for power washing the driveways for $50 each. :( Given the price, I wouldn't use this service again. However, the workers were nice, did a good job, and were responsive. I just don't think it's worth that much.

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 originally bought a big deal on Angie’s List for a small bathroom remodel through Pros Home Services. After taking half of our money up front, Pros’ quality of work was so bad, that 12 weeks into the bathroom remodel, we had to fire them. We needed a contractor ASAP to finish the work, since we were without a shower for 12 weeks - and Angie’s List recommended

. We told
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
our situation and he showed up right away to go over the details. He had several jobs at the time, but still found the time to fit us and help us out. He was great. The previous contractors had no idea what they were doing and left the bathroom in a horrible state – the subway tile was installed completely crooked, the drywall had to be ripped down again, the beadboard was installed in a way that would give us major water damage, etc.
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
walked us through all of their major mistakes to make sure that we didn’t end up with a bathroom that needed to be gutted again in a few months. He came up with ideas on how to fix all of their poor-quality work without having to gut the entire bathroom and leave us without a shower for several more weeks. He was proactive, asked the right questions, walked us through design options, and communicated with us very clearly on the timeline each day. Somehow, in about 3 weeks, he was able to fix all of the previous contactor’s mistakes and we ended up with a bathroom that we absolutely love. We are very thankful that he was able to help us out during our horrible experience. We learned in the process that you can’t trust many contractors but

is definitely trustworthy and I would use him again for all future projects. He’s very easy to work with, his quality of work is great, he works hard to ensure his clients are happy with the end result, and most importantly – he communicates very clearly about the project. We should also note that his team was also great to work with and we even ended up using his painter to repaint our entire foyer and bedrooms – he also did an amazing job.

There were some issues due to the odd way that this condo is plumbed, but they got that figured out.

was very easy to work with and
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, the supervisor of the job was also easy to work with. There were a few problems along the way and they responded well and figured everything out. They failed to purchase a complete batch of tile and I had to get some for them from another store that didn't quite match.

blended the tiles nicely. The grout upstairs seemed too close in color to the tiles themselves, so I requested darker grout for the bigger job. Unfortunately they did not buy enough of the darker grout, and when they bought more the color was very different. They got this fixed by using an opaque sealer, but this made a bit of a mess on the tiles themselves. I was able to steam clean the tiles and it's hard to see the problem now.
Despite the glitches above, the project went well and I am pleased. It cost more than I anticipated because I want for solid "

Bamboo" rather than laminate. The floor looks great and the condo will be easier to sell in the future because of the upgrades. In the mean time it is also more modern and more pleasant to live in. I strongly recommend

The work was performed very well. They showed up on time and were very friendly and polite. They quickly started the job after explaining exactly what they were going to do. The work went quickly and they were done in a flash. The end result is great, the patched area of ceiling looks almost identical to the surrounding areas.
