"It went very well, I am extremely happy.
came by with
to discuss the jobs I needed done, and left soon after.
" replaced the faucet and then
came in to help with the rest of the items. The work that was done was very well done, and when something went wrong with the installation of the door I had purchased, they replaced it with a new one at no charge to me, not even additional labor. All 3 men were pleasant and professional ... they even asked if they needed to watch out for my 2 cats being "escape artists". I wholeheartedly recommend this group; I'll definitely be calling on them again!

"We changed our bathroom fan to one with the heat lamp. The new one requires re-fitting (it's bigger than the original) and re-wiring (necessary to run the heat" lamp and fan separately).
and his partner
have been great! Very professional and good craftsmanship.

Dear Angie: Do handymen bring their own tools? – Wendy H., Spring Lake, North Carolina

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
Otsego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
does phenomenal work. He is a true craftsman - a rarity nowadays. Everything he does, he does exceptionally well! When I saw the outstanding quality of his work I learned he used to build deluxe high-end homes until our economy "tanked" several years ago. My friend, an architect, stopped by to see Bill's wonderful work. He and Bill used building jargon and terminology as they were discussing the structural integrity of a second wall Bill suggested we remove in my home. My architect friend (who works for a very large and respected corporation in Columbus), was singularly impressed with Bill's knowledge and expertise. The wall was removed. Mr.

's idea was awesome! Not only is Bill
Otsego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
a diligent worker, but he is an intelligent diligent worker. He holds an engineering degree. That he loves the challenge of making remodeling decisions and working with very high standards is evident in seeing his finished product! I am very excited about how all his work turned out. I am also excited to have met him!
Bill showed up on time and did not even stop to eat lunch. His work ethic is highly commendable.

I became acquainted with Bill because I purchased a "Big Deal" coupon for handyman work on Angie's List. I will continue to use his services for additional remodeling work. If you have any type of 'handyman' work that needs to be done with excellence and expertise, I strongly urge you to call Bill

A guy came out to give us a quote and after 2 weeks I called to see what was going on only to find out he was no longer with the company and thus did not have any info on the quote. I gave them a second
Otsego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and had another person come out who said he would get back to me on the bid within 3 days. 2 weeks later they finally called. Needless to say, we'd already chosen another company. I will not call them again for any bids.

Amazing experience. I hired
Otsego Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and his crew to gut and remodel a powder room in my home built around 1850. There are no straight lines, level surfaces or right
