"Not sure what was used to install the molding. I would of expected a finish nail of some type. But it looked like a very heavy looking screw that didn't set" completely. So we couldn't remove them or set them. Even after painting over it you can see some.

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.

Bill is extremely professional and provides great quality work. His estimate was very reasonable and he has stuck to his estimate to a tee. He is always on time (in fact he is early) and always follows up to make sure I am happy. He even goes out of his way to meet us at Lowes to make sure we are purchasing the correct paint. I would recommend Bill for any work that he is capable of providing.

came out to do the estimate on time and made an appointment for the following week. He called, as promised the day before the work was to be done and finalized the day of work. The next day he showed up on time again to cut the bottom 16" off my shelves and doors and put the original handles in new locations. When he left, the discarded wood was picked up and the work area was cleaned up as well. I'm very happy with the work and price, and now have a good, dependable handyman/construction company to call on the next time I need anything like this done.

Called
Alanson Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
for an estimate for ceiling mounted shelves for the garage. He came out the same day, climbed up in the attic to assess the job, and gave me a fair estimate. He went above and beyond as the rafters were not in the proper position to install as per directions. He installed beams and used stronger carriage bolts to secure. Definitely exceeded my expectations. I subscribed to Angie's List to find people like this to hire for work when needed. He wasn't listed on here before this and he really should be. I wasn't satisfied with the people I had called, (no show, or job too small, etc.). I found him by searching on Google. I felt strongly about writing a review here and bringing his name to Angie's List so that others can utilize his professional services which they may be looking for. One of the hardest things to find is someone who'll do good work, price fairly, and just show up!

The provider's services were great but the process Angie's List used was terrible. I purchased this from the "handyman Thursday list." I submitted an explanation of the job, provided photos and specified I wouldn't provide the materials. Handyman arrived not having seen the photos, having no materials and having only the vaguest idea of what he was supposed to do. Additionally, Angie's list had told me he would arrive at 4 p.m. or later. He actually arrived at 2 p.m. and told me Angies List had scheduled him for 2:30 pm. He said this is a continuing problem. He ofte shows up at a job scheduled by Angie's list only to find no one there and when he calls, they were told he would be coming at another time.
I will never EVER purchase a job in advance off Angie's list. They clearly don't have any idea of how to schedule. When someone cancels and the have an opening, Angie's list obviously reschedules with the provider without informing the homeowner.
This is not acceptable.

It went great!
Alanson Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was punctual, fast, and meticulous. He went above and beyond , by doing a lot of extra things that I didn't even request. He worked me into his busy schedule earlier than we had anticipated and he stayed late and finished the job, all in the same day for us. We would definitely use him again, and will be recommending him to our friends and neighbors.
