"They were incredibly professional and always on time. They completed the job promptly and I was happy with the finished job. Wonderful follow-up on the completed project.

"One person came out to fix the light and somehow got it working, but wasn't certain it would keep working. He told me that he would come back if it stopped" working. It stopped working soon after he left. He had an electrician (certified) come out within a few days who quickly diagnosed the problem - the switch box controls three lights. The box had been incorrectly wired probably when the house was build. He corrected the faulty wiring and the switch works fine now. Both guys were nice. The electrician came a day after he called to set the appointment because he was going to be starting a big job and mine would not have been gotten to otherwise. I appreciated this. This company does a lot of different
services including bathroom and kitchen remodels. I will talk with them about a bathroom remodel.

Hiring a Handyman

Hiring a handyman is a great way to get small projects done around the home, but many homeowners wonder: How much does it cost to hire a handyman?

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.

I am in the process of remodeling the entire main floor of my condo, and I hired the
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
(

) to do some of the work. I wanted to get this stuff finished before I had my new hardwood floors installed.
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his helpers installed 2 pre-hung interior doors and necessary trim (one for the bedroom, and one leading to the basement, installed new sheetrock and insulation on one wall where it was removed, and repaired multiple areas of sheetrock on the walls and ceiling where it was either damaged or had paint peeling off.
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did a great job. He was responsive to my emails and calls. Installing the trim around the windows was tricky because the windows were not perfectly level and even with the wood beams. The end result looks great. You would not even know that the walls and ceiling were damaged at all. Everything is nice and smooth.
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is a very nice guy, and he takes the time to explain everything he is doing, and will give you good suggestions if you are not quite sure what you want to do. He made sure I was satisfied with the finished job and offered to fix anything I wasn't happy with. I was happy with everything though. I will surely contact him again for any future work I need to have done.

I had a broken pipe that caused all the wood flooring in my home to cup and buckle to the point that the floors cracked open.
My insurance company covered my claim and I began a
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
for a contractor as I am fairly new to the area.
I had a terrible time trying to find a quality contractor who would give me a fair price that was anywhere near what the insurance company estimated the job to cost. Most seemed to just want to push the insurance company to their limit or didn't bother to get back to me.
I found AHS and

on Angie's list. I received a timely proposal that was far better than any others I had gotten. After careful consideration, i decided to work with

. He started on time and finished ahead of schedule , even though there were some slight delays out of his control. I was forced to live in a hotel for the duration of the project. His crew was friendly and his wife,

Both

and his whole crew had a very easy going demeanor and a willingness to work with me and add line items as we went along. I enjoyed working with a more mom and pop type operation but the results were as I would have expected from a much larger one. This was not a small job, and it was very stressful to have almost your whole house removed and replaced , but AHS rewarded me for my faith with a quality job.

I always read reviews when I choose a provider and the reviews were great for this provider. I saw that someone gave them an F because services were not performed. Well I'm giving them an A because services were not performed. They were punctual and not only did they tell me that they were not the provider I should go with they explained why and gave me a recommendation and will make sure we connect. Although they will not be providing the service for this job they gave me feedback and advice that was extremely helpful. Now I know what to do and where to start with getting the work done that I need. They could have easily taken my money and run with it but these guys are HONEST and I don't say that lightly. My only wish is that I can in the future be able to work with them. I learned so much from you in a little less than an hour :)

Went without a hitch. He called, arrived when planned, did the work, and with no complaints - only approval - from my picky husband. I was at work, so my husband supervised, and if he was satisfied, it was really done well.

I cannot say enough good things about

. He has come to my home multiple times in the past couple of years for an assortment of home repair jobs- change out light fixtures, repair leaking shower door, install drapery rods and hang heavy mirrors; and I am confident that he would do wonderful work in any job he takes on. He is always quick to reply to phone or text messages; comes quickly if you are on a deadline (like getting the house on the

The owner is friendly and honest. His work is precise. He also had to do some electric work in order for this lighting to be installed. I have used him for other jobs as well. (Plumbing, drywall, tile) He is very talented in his trade. I would highly recommend him for any job around the house big or small.

Overal the project went well. This was a major project that involved new flooring in dining and kitchen (tiles), brand new kitchen with cabinets, applicances, etc, Full house painting, new closets, complete remodelling of three bathrooms, and finishing of the basement. We had used

for a smaller project few months back which he did a good job. Encouraged by his past work, we asked him to undertake this major renovation project. We asked

to start the project on a certain date (

8th, 2014) and work continuously till it is completed.
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did live up to that commitment. He and his crew worked almost 6 days a week and completed the the project in appx 8 weeks. He and his crew are very friendly and know what they are doing.
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is very responsive to emails, texts, and phone calls. Since this was a significant rennovation - the cost was significant as well. In hindsight - we should done this project on a fixed price vs. paying an hourly rate. This is the main reason I have given "B" on the cost category. We continue to use
