"This is ridiculously expensive. They charge you almost $300 for 2 hours for 1 person. And they only work 8 to 5, so if you are working you can't even make" an appt with them. So I thought this was all too ridiculous and a waste of time calling them. I would never use them. This only works for stay at home moms who have a lot of money to spend and can stay home and wait for the

"
came out to do the estimate and had it to me that evening. I called
to schedule the work. I was told to expect" the worker between 8 and 8:30am.
was there and ready by 8:15am each day at the latest. The first day was the bulk of the work (replacing trap, replacing toilet, tearing out drywall, assessing the spigot) followed by a 1/2 day (installing, taping, mudding drywall and replacing the outside spigot) and a third brief visit for final sanding of the new drywall. Work was excellent. This is the 2nd time I've used this service and will continue to do so.

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.

My email request for a quote was responded to promptly. What was shocking, however, was the hourly cost for

. services. Below you will find the portion of the email they sent in response to my query, which outlines their charges. In communicating with several other similar service providers (2 from Angie's List and 1 from another referral), I learned that

When he arrived, I did not have the materials I needed for the kitchen shelf. He told me exactly what I needed to go and purchase for him to do the job. While I was getting the materials he moved on to another project When he replaced the kitchen faucet the old water line was not long enough and he told me the size he needed to finish. After head finished the projects I had listed, he inquired if there was any thing else I needed repaired. I was very pleased with all the work that was done

Responded quickly and made appt for review of jobs needed. Time for project scheduled within 3 week which was within my time frame. Only hiccup is that they were late starting on the scheduled day/time and had to come back the next day. However, the work was done and done very well.

did a great job on our basement. I thought it was a fair price for what we required. Three room and a full bathroom was completed in ~4 weeks. We had several small modifications along the way and he was very responsive in completing the requests/changes. He only has himself and one other gentlemen working, but they are very professional and perform good work.

Mr.
Okemos Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is very positive, helpful, reliable, and skilled. I need someone to help me with household tasks - large and small - and I feel like I've hit the jackpot. I'm hoping he can find time to paint some rooms for me in the fall. And help me with some other tasks before then, both large and small. I rely on and trust his advice. Look no further.
