"A very good experience. Called them and estimator came by around noon - I said I really wanted to get the job done ASAP and they were able to have
come around" 2 o'clock.
did excellent work throughout and was very efficient with his time, including about a 1/2 hour trip to pick up needed supplies. He made sure everything was finished well (all caulking, touchup painting) and was very courteous too, and asked me to come answer a couple of questions about how I wanted things to look when I finished. A very positive experience here and a very good deal with the price Angie's list offered.

"Chaz and
were INCREDIBLE. Both of them were so knowledgable, nice, prompt, and speedy. The job was completed far under the budget I had expected, and with perfect" results. I wasn't sure the railing was going to be able to work on the front of my house because the feet had rusted, but Chaz was able to find a solution and my railing is extremely steady. I also had some very heavy, unusual items to hang which they were able to do in under 30 minutes. They were very responsive leading up the the project and on-time. I can't recommend them highly enough and continue to use their services. It's been difficult being a homeowner alone as a girl, especially with a fixer-upper like mine. I feel like most of the jobs I've hired people to do have come with a lot of inappropriate comments and a "creepy vibe." I don't often like having people in the home alone, especially men.
and Chaz were a great team sensitive to that need for sure, I never felt uncomfortable or "weirded out" as I so often have with other people who have come to work on my home. They were great! The jobs were done quickly and at an amazing price.

"
is very good at what he does and id a very smart man. I'm not familiar what other
charge, but I can tell you that
" work is top rate and you don't have to worry about quality. We have a very nice home and I didn't want things screwed up. He's not cheap but he can fix or repair about anything. I guess you get what you pay for. We have used
about 8 times in the last year.

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.

Terrible, not only did he provide little service, what service he did provide was very poor and left a mess for the next painter to fix.
Moral is you get what you pay for.

at a very busy time, but he did as he said he would, in a very reasonable time frame, and delivered on the quality plus more. He lived up to his commitment of getting it done at the quoted price, and stayed in touch to let me know by confirming his arrival times and finishing times for any given day.

is very honest and pleasant, and I would use him again in a heartbeat. He was very considerate of my points of view, and made some very good choices on the tile and the pattern overall.

Overall
Rockford Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did a very good job. He was an hour late, although it was the evening and he was coming from another job - both items I knew in advance.
He did the work in the allotted time. I did much of the clean up, but he absolutely offered to help.
The work he did was excellent. The joint looked great, and I recently repainted it. You cannot tell the seam from the old plaster and the new hardened joint compound. On top of that, he was professional and courteous.
I would certainly use him again.

was responsive and showed up on time for our appointment. He fixed my kitchen drawer which had not opened and closed properly for months, sanded down our back door and sealed up a gap in its joints so it closed properly (and suggested we get a threshold to keep the cold air out this winter), and removed our old ceiling fan, assembled and installed a new one.

Everything works, and we were very happy with the service.

Transaction was painless. The company communicated via the Angies List message service and we quickly came to an agreed up time. They showed up promptly, ready with materials. We took a few minutes to discuss and point out where the work was needed and they went along their way. They completed with work with minimal interruptions of my time and I was very satisfied with the outcome.
Would use them again to come and do other general handyman work around the house.
