"He was very professional and did a good job. He didn't have to spend time going over user manuals showing he knows his stuff really well.

"The process went smoothly from start to finish.
was very knowledgeable and detailed at his consultation visit. He spent much more time analyzing" the job than other contractors we discussed the job with. I was hoping after his visit that he would beat the other estimates that were given, and he did. One of the other contenders was going to charge more for just the laundry room than
charged for the entire job.
and his workers always arrived promptly and had positive attitudes. Our requests for slight changes to the job were always welcomed, and anything we were not content with was quickly fixed. Inevitably unexpected issues arose (such as discovering rotting pipes under the sink) and
and his crew completed these additional projects for very reasonable prices. The tile work on the floors was top notch, and the improvements to the walls in the laundry room were better than we expected. The room is now very much "finished" and after a few design additions, is now one of my wife's favorite rooms in the house.

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.

Went well. I think
North Wilkesboro Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
does a good job, he's easy to work with. He does only work from around 10am-4pm M-F but I would too if I could. He will usually need time to investigate the issue and then help you solve it. But it helps if you are there and can provide input. I always seem to have a list for him, but he get's to what he can. I would continue to hire

as he's very knowledgeable and always calls to double check before the appointment. I know Home Depot always says do it yourself...and some things you can but some things are better left to people with experience (that don't charge a arm and a leg).

The work was completed in one day. Another vendor told me that we would have to replace all three fixed floor to ceiling windows for Big Bucks! A third vendor also thought repair was not possible and recommended replacing all the windows.

and his crew did the repair for a reasonable cost and it all looks great. It turned out better than I would have expected. I am very pleased and I would strongly recommend this company.

It went great! He showed up on time, was very polite and did a fantastic job! My husband had A LOT of lights and had very specific ideas of how he wanted them put up. When he finished they were perfect! We will definitely use this company in the future.

was very professional. they gave me an amazing price and completed all of the work quickly and professionally. He also tried to fix a sliding glass door and helped a little there, but that one is probably beyond repair so i wasn't expecting much there. would definitely use them again!

Fast, efficient and clean.
We also needed the toilet seat replaced but because of the OLD toilet, the seat bolts were rusted steel and it would have meant some drilling/grinding to remove the bolts and there could have been damage to the existing toilet bowl. We opted to not have this done and maybe someday replace the whole toilet (probably would be safer). Toilet and seat is just fine as it is (would have been nice to have a new seat with the slow-close lid - oh well).

Art showed up dug up the old fence post, set the new post and came back the next day to install the new wood for the fence . Then he cut up all of the old fence so that it could be discarded as well as cleaned up the area where he was doing all of his work and put that area of the yard back the way it was.

was excellent. Came in under budget and had to make two trips for additional hardware to ensure a safe install. Everything he did is outstanding and he was very professional and easy to work with. This was new construction so many items were left undone and had to be completed prior to taking possession. I highly recommend

responded within 24 hours to provide a written estimate for the repair work based on photos we texted to her. An appointment was set so that work would begin within a few days. The crew arrived as scheduled and services were completed within just a few hours. The finished wall and ceiling texturing and paint were a near perfect match. The the crew was prompt, professional and courteous. I would highly recommend this service provider and will not hesitate to call on her for future repair services.
