was prompt in getting back to us. Showed up when promised. Always called ahead to confirm. Thoroughly inspected issue. Researched the materials." Gave a very detailed description of work he would perform. Completed the job on time. Kept us informed of status throughout the process and warrantied his work. Accomodated our schedule. Easy to work with and we would use him again and definitely would recommend him to others.

Dear Angie: Do handymen bring their own tools? – Wendy H., Spring Lake, North Carolina

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.

and his helpers did a great job on our remodel. Their work is very high quality, and they were very respectful of our time and space. Our bathroom is small and we weren't knocking down walls or moving plumbing, just replacing everything in the outdated room except the toilet!
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
listened to what we wanted and made suggestions about what was and wasn't possible, especially regarding expanding the small corner shower. We bought the main materials (tile, vanity, shower doors) but he provided all the install materials. He started right away and was easy to schedule around the arrival of materials. He kept in frequent contact with us by phone and email, so we knew exactly what was happening when. I was impressed with how much care he and his workers took to keep our house clean, from laying down tarps from the door to the bathroom to putting up a plastic

to keep dust out of the rest of the master bedroom. We now have a beautiful bathroom that will last for years due to their excellent work. I would gladly have

Great!! Appreciated him making time in his schedule since we had a deadline to complete the balcony railings repairs for insurance purposes. He also noticed the toilet seat was loose and found parts to repair it. Also fixed the kitchen cabinet door so it would close properly

- We paid over $20k for the exterior of our 200 year old plantation home to be painted. The craftsmanship is of extraordinarily poor quality. It looks worse now than it did before. Visible caulk shows through the paint. Our front door was never painted. One of his employees broke a piece of cypress siding that he assured us he'd replace which was never done. His crew did not properly dispose of empty paint cans. (They are still in our driveway.) - Antique windows and screen doors were removed from our home to be refinished. The screen doors were never returned.
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
eventually brought the windows back but left them on our back porch, unfinished with broken panes. - We have tens of thousands of dollars tied up in custom cabinetry. Most of the doors are falling off the hinges. The ones that are on the hinges swing inward. Many of our cabinets are missing shelves. The painting of the cabinets are of poor workmanship. we've tried addressing these issues with the cabinet maker but he's unwilling to help because he wasn't fully paid by

for the job. -
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
urged us to put marble counter tops in the kitchen. (Which also cost over $10k.) they are essentially useless because the marble shows every water
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, stain, etc. According to the company from which the marble was purchased, marble should never be used in a high traffic area such as a kitchen. - We contracted
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to close in a back porch and paid for him to replace screened areas with glass. The porch was partially enclosed and the screen was replaced with more screen. The door was removed to be refinished but was never returned. - A nearby neighbor graciously gave us an old home for the purpose of using the reclaimed cypress for our remodeling project. We paid
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to demolish the house. A lot of the cypress was used for our kitchen remodel. The remaining cypress was being stored at
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's workshop. We'd planned to use the remaining cypress in our outdoor kitchen project. My mother in law also wanted some of the wood for building a

. It was also agreed upon that
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
would build a gun cabinet from the cypress for us to give our neighbor as a gift, in exchange for the house he'd allowed us to tear down.
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
of course never built it. Soon after
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
walked off the job, we found online where he was attempting to SELL our reclaimed cypress! The cypress was eventually seized and auctioned after
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
failed to pay the rent on his workshop. - Throughout the year or so we worked for us, he frequently talked about the "free room" he'd remodel and a five or ten percent credit from work he'd completed to be applied to the remodeling of another room. That of course never came to fruition. - in September of 2013 he told me
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was having a 40% off sale. He urged me to buy all the interior paint necessary for remodeling two downstair bedrooms. He said the materials at the discounted price would total roughly $1500-$1600 and that the sale would end in just a few days. I agreed to purchase the paint. We asked him about the paint for months. Over a year later, he left it on our back porch. (Five cans.). I went to
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to obtain a copy of his invoice. The paint he charged us $1500-$1600 dollars actually cost him just over $100. - Around the holidays he gave us a sob story about not having the money to make payroll for his employees. He asked for a $1500 advance/loan. The money was never repaid nor earned. - The very expensive Viking dishwasher he installed was not installed properly and has never worked. - Punch list items on a smaller commercial remodel we'd hired him to do were never completed. The employees he had working our commercial project were never paid. The list is exhaustive and I could go on but readers should get the gist. No matter how big or how small the job,
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
cannot be trusted. Regretfully, my husband and I learned the hard way. I am happy to share pictures, invoices, bids, change orders, etc. There is absolutely no part of my complaint he can possibly deny or refute.

is run by a very talented carpenter/ handyman/ homeowner, JR
Scott Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. Upon moving into our newly constructed home, JR provided us with a reasonable and competitive estimate to have the entire 3-floor townhome painted, including some of our ceilings and our garage.
JR and his crew were very patient while my husband and I debated paint colors. They took care of purchasing the paint needed--and we had selected about 10 different colors, so this was no small task! Our requested dates for service were met; and the crew provided service in a timely manner. Due to the heat at the time of painting, there were some parts of the house that needed touch ups. JR ensured that we received these touch ups at no extra cost and on our own schedule, so that we weren't inconvenienced in any way. Our garage was also painted and the paint job in there has held up incredibly well despite all of the changes in our Virginia weather.
The crew also assisted us with the proper sealing of out new granite counter tops and grout. Being first time homeowners, we weren't sure what to expect with the care and maintenance of different surfaces. JR provided us with professional advice without making us feel as if he were "upselling" or obligated to use his services. However, it was his trustworthiness and honest approach to doing business that resulted in our decision to utilize his services, rather than two other businesses we had spoken with.
My husband works overseas, and JR has been available to assist me with all kinds of odds and ends that I wouldn't have been able to complete on my own for various reasons. His services have been immeasurably helpful and I feel anyone would benefit from his wide knowledge base and strong sense of ethics when approaching home repairs and improvements.
