"Highest of recommendations!!! Very honest, thorough, careful, detailed, and innovative. The heating system works better than it has in the 10 years since we have" purchased this place. Other HVAC men would tell us we needed a brand new system for $8,000.00, and this man fixed what we had beautifully for $300, did the dirty work necessary to fix the ducting under the house, replaced the coils, cleaned out the whole system, and the house has actually stayed warm even in this far below freezing weather. Extremely positive and professional, cheerful people. Was a great troubleshooter in fixing the areas that were causing the most problems. Have a "can do" attitude, and really know their business.
is HVAC certified, but is there to help you make your money go as far as possible. Very innovative in his solutions to problems that confounded others who came before him. Extremely reasonable price wise, & honest in all dealings, even when he could have been otherwise due to our lack of expertise in an area. Use them with confidence. If they could not do something well, they would say so. I cannot recommend highly enough.

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.

We were charged almost $300 to reattach a piece of trim that had come away from the brick siding near the peak of our house.
Cambridge Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
showed up on time and after some time trying to figure out how to do this, he made a trip to the store for supplies that he did not have on his van. He reattached the trim using some caulk, and 4 tap con screws that he had to go get from the store. For that effort we were charged almost $300. He was very personable, however, my wife and I could not believe that he didn't have the necessary items on board, and that we were charged for him to go to the store. Not only was the cost of the supplies outrageous, so was the rate we were charged. We will not be using this company again for other projects we have, and I will not be recommending them to others as well.

He said I needed a new water heater (which I knew). He said he couldn't fix it until Monday/Tuesday. I told him I had a child and asked if he could fix it so I could have water over the weekend....he said NO. This man was at my home long enough to write out an estimate (maybe 10 min) and couldn't care less about helping me with my water heater. I contacted another company and they not only came out but they fixed it so we could have water until it was replaced (on Monday). The biggest problem with

is they sent an invoice to my insurance for something they did NOT do. My insurance will not pay me my $540 until they receive the money that

My husband accidentally backed into our 3 household mailbox post. It was snowing, the ground was pretty much frozen and my husband knew, once he checked out the damage, that there was no way he could repair it until spring. We called
Cambridge Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and left a message....he got back with us promptly and scheduled a time to come look the next day. He determined he could do the job for a reasonable amount (another guy wanted 400-450 for a fancy mailbox which we didn't need) and would come back as quickly as possible.

replaced the post and put in two new mailboxes for our neighbors because theirs were pretty much beyond repair. He also put new address stickers on for them. Our mailbox was still okay as is.
We were very happy with the repairs and appreciate that he got the work done in such a quick manner since it was still snowing and the mail was still coming!

in a corner cabinet, fixed a leaky tub, replaced two broken GFI outlets in kitchen so the outlets would all work (none were working on arrival and we were not sure why), removed an old broken light fixture and installed a (provided) ceiling fan in upstairs bedroom, removed two old alarm boxes I asked them to and fixed a piece of torn metal weather stripping on the front door. It was well worth the $249 handyman deal to have them come out and get the work done so quickly. Both men were very polite and had all the tools they needed to do the various jobs (they did go purchase a few items which I paid them back for- some outlets and some washers-

worked to solve a wiring problem for a while but informed me it would take way longer than the allotted time so I called the office and they will return in a week to complete the task of re-wiring and hanging the foyer lights and patching up the (already existing) hole in the drywall. Additionally I have scheduled a time for their boss to come out and provide a quote on a larger project we have been wanting to complete.
I would highly suggest this handyman service- just make sure you have a long list! They are really fast workers and probably could have done even more work had I planned ahead and had more material available. I will certainly use

The provider sent a gentleman out and he showed up on time. He did everything I needed done inside the home. When it came time for the garage window film he obviously hadn't applied it before. It took him a really long time (about 2 hours) and it ended up creased in alot of areas and bubbly in other. I probably could have done a similar job. Once he was done he told me it would be an additional $120 for the extra two hours labor, which it shouldn't have been because he was still working on some of the time that I prepaid. I told the owner of the company that I was not going to pay the additional amount because the film was applied poorly and it really shouldn't have taken two hours time. The owner argued with me quite a bit and tried to make similar references if he didn't like something did that mean he didn't have to pay. I asked him to come out and look at the job and tell me whether or not it looked professional. I never heard from him again so whether or not he actually came and looked at it (you could see the

It went great.

quickly identified the issues with the frozen pipe and fixed it so it wont happen again. The prior contractor I used left a portion of my wall with no thermal break and the pipes froze so bad he had to replace them. Now that
Cambridge Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
fixed it I am sure it wont happen again.
He also replaced a faucet, repaired damage in the plaster of a celling and recaulked my bathroom. The faucet looks great and works perfect. The celling looks brand new, and the bathroom looks 100 times better than it did.
Good contractors are hard to find. I will have no problem calling
