"It took a while to get in touch and set up a date, but once it was arranged, he came at appointed date and time as promised. The fan installation was done without" a hitch. We were very pleased with the work. We were so pleased, we spoke with him about other jobs we wanted done around the house; in detail. He seemed interested, even gave us a quote; however, we never heard back from him again. For this reason, we never called him back for any other work. But for the fan installation we had done...it was a great job.

"I contacted
in the hours leading up to the Blizzard of 2015 inquiring whether they might be able to help shovel out after the impending storm."
contacted me very quickly to let me know that he would be driving by the 2 properties where I needed assistance in order to give me an estimate. The estimate was very reasonable. The following day they showed up during the height of the storm and did an amazing job clearing my walkway, making a path the my car etc. I was the first one on our street to have the snow cleared and was very grateful. The also came back to both properties very early the following morning to clear away new snow and create a parking spot. They were extremely responsive, helpful, courteous and friendly. I would not hesitate to call them again the next time I need a handyman for our house or for our tenants at our rental property.

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.

Handyman reviews in Scarborough

The quality of the work was very good. The quantity of the work done for the price paid was somewhat disappointing. There were other projects that we had discussed with him and he was set up to stop by on a particular day to review them. He didn't show and after a week or so when he was contacted by a text message, we got an unprofessional response. With a contractor rated as highly as he was, we were disappointed.

was amazing! We had another plumber try to find the leak & couldn't. He realized the vanity would have to be removed & he was not comfortable with doing that.

came in, found the leak within 2 minutes, then explained exactly what needed to be done. Two of his guys showed up today,

answered my Angies List message quickly. He was there to give bid as soon as I could be availabl on a Saturday morning. He returned Monday and did the work. He was on time and very friendly and professional. We will definitely use him again, to replace tub/shower with a walk in shower. Pretty sure he can do almost anything.

I'm totally amazed by this service. After Blizzard Juno, I thought that I arranged someone to help with the clean up however on Wednesday I couldn't get in touch with them at all. Around one I gave up and tried to find someone else to help. When I found
Scarborough Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
it was late in the day and I didn't think he would take the job. He said that he had just finished cleaning all the jobs that he had gotten earlier but didn't want to leave me stranded, so he made a special trip back out to help with my clean up. He was very prompt for the arranged time and I was more then pleased by the job that he did. I'm truly amazed at the work. I can't say thank you enough and I highly recommend him for any projects you might need to do around your house.

Very well.

Hall and Son, Chase, came and did a very good job hanging the drywall, cutting and snapping the flooring together, and gave me good advice.

knew that the mirror was 7 1/2 inches thick, and would likely block the overhead light. He told me immediately which was very early in the day and I had time to go buy sconces to mount on each side of the mirror. I could tell that he thinks proactively and that helped save me time and money.

It went extremely well! I contacted

on Sunday (the darn toiler was leaking) and we agreed that he would come over on Tuesday. He was right on time, had the tools he needed and got right to work. He completed the work quickly and cleaned up everything as well. The products look and work great and we are very pleased . We thought the charge was certainly reasonable as well. I recommend
