"
is fantastic he helped me with my ugh awful cabinet doors not staying shut. I can't say enough about this guy and his office lady. She" worked with me as I had to order cabinet hardware and wait until I received them. I will recommend this guy and in the future he will be the first guy I call when I need work done on my house. Thanks
you are the best.

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.

So far so good, Job looks well done and saved me a lot of time and frustration of trying to do everything myself with limited time I have. He came to the house and gave a quick estimate and came out within a week and got it done. He is very personable and calls back phone calls. It has not rained hard since he just did it today so I don't know if his fixes for the leak worked or not. Todays grade iis based on his quick and attentive service, which can be hard to find these days. If I don't add anymore in the future to this review, then his work on the water leaks did the trick.

responsive to the email after I purchased the Deal on Angies List. We were able to schedule a mutually agreeable time and date. The employee arrived exactly on time and went right to work. He took extra care with the shelves to be sure they could withhold weight. I would definitely recommend this company. I was very satisfied.

I purchased 2 hours of handyman services about a month ago. First appointment was On a Friday at 9:00am. They were a no show, but there were storms in the area, so I understood. Problem was they never called me to say they weren't coming. I had to call them. Then rescheduled for a Tuesday at 3pm. Because they don't do weekends I had to take time off from work to meet them. I received a couple of calls from them saying they were running behind and could not make the 3:00 appointment, but they would be there as soon as they could. A guy showed up at 6:30pm. This surprised me because they told me they worked in teams of 2. The guy worked on one project for a few minutes but did not complete it. Never really got to the 2nd item. Told me he would be back in a few days but so far has not. Called them again and left a message. They called me back so say I would get another phone call later that same day telling we when they would be back. Ten days have passed since that last call and still no results. I am starting to research how to get a refund or switch to another provider. Very unreliable.

Everything went great. Ed and a co-worker replaced wood rot in the outside out of windows and repaired a door frame that was showing signs of weathering. They were here for about 2.5 hours and completed everything. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

At first it seemed to be going good. Didn't get a
Rochester Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to examine well because winter was here and we didn't use it. We also had an extension cord going thru the do so we didn't notice the mistakes there til we had the cord removed.
Pictures speak better so I will explain with the pictures. I called and text him. Only once did he as and said he would be down to check it out on the weekend but it rained so I waited til the next eekend and he didn't show up so I texted and called no returns.
Ok.guess I'll have to try to tell you with no pictures cuz I don't see a place to add pictures.
1) very cheap screen for windows
2) no hardware for the latch of the screen door to hook into
3) inside of doorway not finished put only 3/4 piece door jam? On one side and none on the other two sides
4) multiple gaps on inside top where bugs are coming thru which defeats the purpose of building a screen room for no bugs.
5) areas where the nails did not hit the boards and plywood is pulling from the area and leaving gap.
6)inside of one side of wall at the peak of the roof has boards vertical and the other side does not.

14 to acquire an estimate and hopefully schedule them to re-attach my soffit on my home. I sent them pictures of the area and stated that it appeared to have some wood rot. Due to their hectic schedule, they could not get to me that week but did have me scheduled the following week. The
