"My home had sat empty for 3 or 4 months at a time while I was taking care of my Mom back east. for 5 years. It was very dusty. Needed a good cleaning. I appreciate" the fact that it was
that came and I would prolong an appt. just to get him. He knows what he's doing. He had someone come and do the bathroom while he was here and she was very thorough. The ONLY reason I only checked "good" under " quality " is because the grout on the bathroom floor sat too long to get it really white again. It needs to be done more than once and not their fault. I would recommend them to anyone and I already did to my son & daughter-in-law. Price was reasonable and fair. Look forward to future business with them.

"I had a hard time even getting people to return phone calls. I contacted
and he stopped by the same day to look at my job. He said he would" try to get me an estimate by the end of the day which he did. The main reason I contacted him in the first place was a lot of good reviews on Angie's list. He started and completed the work in the time frame that he said he would. I felt his workers were trustworthy and did a great job. I would definitely use him 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.

It was fantastic. We sat down with him and showed him our list, he helped us prioritize importance (and showed us where some of the issues weren't really something we needed to address) and stuck to cost estimates almost to the dollar - with an older house there are sometimes surprises in what you find that needs to be done - he kept us in the loop so we never suffered sticker shop. He is our go-to person on speed dial if we need something around the house. So nice to have professional, courteous, honest and reliable service.

.We have used Pier many times in the past for projects big and small, so we didn't even consider anybody else for this job. He was involved all the way from the planning stages where he gave us a great source for tile for the bathroom (Tile Matters) and even helped us

out the pattern for the tile and the countertops. We had very specific ideas about the type of

fixtures that we wanted and he was quick to find them and get them installed exactly as we wanted. He and his assistant

did all the work themselves and as usual it was precise, meticulous, and of the highest quality. The job took about three weeks to complete, and the results are truly spectacular! We feel as if we have been transported to another world when we go into the bathroom to take a shower or get dressed in the morning. Thanks Pier for another fantastic job.

Very well. Since the Angie's list deal was for 4 hours of labor, Mr.

called me first to discuss the repairs so I would know what supplies to have on hand. He made suggestions that saved me money, worked quickly, and took care to ensure I was pleased with the job. I highly recommend his services to others.

The job took 4 months as opposed to the 3 - 4 weeks we were told. The first day of the job, the helper busted a water line and flooded our living room floor, so they paid to replace our wood floors without hesitation. They were pleasant to do business with, though I feel his charges are on the high side. Trustworthy and capable.

Roofing / Chimney / leaks are not

(

was pushy and was not really listening to what I was saying. I did not get a good feeling about what was being said or going on. He tracked mud basically throughout my house. He did not come prepared for work as I had to supply his tools - ladder and a flashlight, (no caulk). He did not clean up after they were done either. I would not recommend this company for any roof repairs. I don't like giving bad reviews, but felt that it was my responsibility being a member of Angies List and how much I rely on them since I am new to my area.

Did a good repair. I am concerned about the painting of the repaired porch. It was double coated which is fine. But there are places where paint is not sticking well because more than mere scraping was needed. Contractor was asked to look at a second small job and said he would, but did not follow up as promised.

I called the provider several times to get someone out to repair a leaky water line from the City's meter to my house. After the provider finally sent someone out, he told me that the entire water line should be replaced because it was corroded galvanized steel and couldn't be properly repaired. However, they never dug up the leaky pipe to confirm its material or condition. Therefore, I called another provider who promptly sent someone out to repair the water line. The water line was actually made of PVC (not galvanized steel) and was leaking due to a loose fitting.
