"Legacy Building Company did a wonderful job! The craftsmen were top-notch and everything ran very smoothly. There weren't any delays or unnecessary disruptions" to our home. They came in, put up dust barriers, got the job done, were here at reasonable hours, were extremely respectful of my family (including two rambunctious kids) and were very communicative about what was happening next. The bid was extremely thorough and left nothing to surprise. Thus, we knew the cost going into the project, which was nice. My husband works with contractors all day, so we expected professional and exceptional service, and that's exactly what we got! We would highly recommend
and all the folks at Legacy Building Company for your next home remodel.

came by, and priced out our 4-5 small projects. We agreed with the estimate, and scheduled for him to do the work. He indicated that he" would be available about 3 weeks later; he said that he'd call us at the start of that week with an exact date. That week came, but
never called, and never responded to either my or my husband's voicemails or texts. A week later, he still never responded. He just completely disappeared. Incredibly disappointing, and so incredibly unprofessional.

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.

Had to call them back on the bi-
Okemos Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
as the one door came un-hung. Was disappointed in that they could not/would not clean and change the light bulbs in a chandelier. Need to find someone else to do that unfortunately. If I had known they could get all that I had done in an 1 1/2 I would have come up with more stuff. The deals was 4 hrs, it would have been nice if they had told me that it would not take that long and see if I have other stuff I needed to add.

took our request list and quickly told us which jobs he could cover, and which jobs would require a specialist. There were a couple dozen things to do. He did them quickly and effectively and at a cost far below the other

and crew were very prompt and arrived when they said they would. They got to work right away with the doors installation. They protected all interior surfaces and even took their shoes off when in the house. The doors were installed very professionally with some additional touches that were not outlined in the proposal. They came back the next day to paint the new trim and it all looks great. Everyone in the crew was very personable and professional. I will definitely use

came promptly at appointed time to assess several jobs to ready my house to sell. He seemed knowledgable about the work, and said he would be back the next day to assess the roofing work as he did not have a ladder with him. He never appeared. Moreover, I saw him at the local Big Box DIY store where he turned away from me in order for me not to see him. He spent an hour at my house talking about the jobs that needed to be done. If he was not interested, he could have just said no, or made up an excuse. He told me he would be back the next morning to look at the roof and was not heard from again. JUST SAY THIS IS NOT YOUR KIND OF WORK

This is a top notch construction and handyman company. On this visit the worker was prompt, fast, detail-oriented and cleaned up the work areas thoroughly. We had a variety of smaller items that needed to be repaired and all were completed before the estimated completion time in a very professional manner. It's no wonder that this company holds such high ratings from it's customers. Several years ago JP

Construction completely finished our unfinished basement to the highest standard. All of our family and friends have remarked at the quality of the entire job which included drywall, tile, painting, bathroom, lighting and finish carpentry. The owner helped us with the design as well. Our lower level is now a beautiful space and we have recommended this company to many.

has done work for me at my home and at a rental property several times: replacing a crawlspace door, installing bathroom fans and other miscellaneous tasks. They are on time or call to let you know if they have been delayed. They are quick, clean and have always gotten the job done right the first time. The thing I like about them best is that if they leave a message, they give you actionable information- no endless phone tag.

& Sons did an amazing job on all of the repairs needed throughout our home. I contacted
Okemos Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
& Sons and let them know that I needed this work to be done ASAP so we could list our home for sale. They came the very next day to do a walk-through of my repairs and started work the very next day. During the walk-through, they clearly explained to me what they would do for each different project and there wasn't a single thing on my list that they couldn't tackle. The next day, they showed up right on time and were prepared with all the necessary tools to get the job done. They worked quickly and efficiently and did all of the jobs to perfection. Since my husband works from home and some of the work was in his home office, I told them they needed to work quietly and would have to work around his schedule. They respected my wishes and did an excellent job making sure to not disturb my husband and worked with him to get the jobs done when it was convenient for him and not them. All of the work they performed at my house was excellent.
