showed up right on time. He was polite, professional and a quick worker. All the little jobs took 3.5 hrs total, including a run to the hardware" store to get light bulbs that matched our other pot lights. He recommended we follow-up on wiring in the other pot lights since the last contractor may not have used the best connectors and they were wearing out. We will definitely use
again and hope they send
again.

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.

sealed the hole in the attic and repaired the area around it with a new piece of wood. He also patched the hole from the living room and painted it so that the site of the repair blended with the color of the paint on the ceiling.

was courteous and professional. He spent a few hours at the house and even helped to look for the entry point at the back of the house that the rodents used to get into the attic. The charge for the work was very reasonable.

He did a great job. We will know if the repair was successful after the next rain. I have also hired him to repair and paint the front door and the porch rail. Hopefully this work will be performed within the next two weeks.

I wanted 3
Worcester Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
paint for the ground level floor of my house. Painters took all the door knobs off, put all the pieces in one bucket and when they put them back together, 3 of the 4 doors they painted do not work properly; not to mention that my deadbolt was on the outside of my house. They accidentally double sprayed one door so the paint ran all over and it looks terrible. They got paint on my carpet, kitchen cabinets, and pretty much everything that was not covered. One of the crew members confided in my wife that they were rushing the job and he did not approve. I still have two walls painted the wrong color.
-I do admit that they offered to replace the double painted door but by that time I just wanted them out before they got paint on something else.

It went great. What I liked best is he --
Worcester Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
-- cleaned up after himself. He was only a few minutes late both times. He was personable, knowledgeable about how to do everything we needed done, he explained why he did what he did. My husband mentioned we were charged for about 90 minutes when he was at Home Depot buying parts. He said he had to wait a long time in a line for charging to the company. My husband thought it should have taken less time but

knows. We would definitely use them again and would recommend them. We would not use them at the rate printed on the bill -- $99 to $110. We paid $88 for two hours as a deal, then $55 an hour for the rest. We of course paid for materials and should have.
