"In the beginning, the owner was very nice , polished and charming. That was the best part of the whole project. The tile guy cut the tile wrong. Then put down the" black marble border tile crooked. And when I asked that it be corrected, the crew did it very reluctantly as if I was a real pain.The owner said he thought the border was fine. But finally did fix it. A painter painted a bathroom ceiling upstairs and the next day the paint was peeling off. I made it clear that the pipes beneath the wall-hung sink should be chrome. But when the plumber came to put in the sink, the drain was half rubber, half chrome. It did not look good at all. When I complained about that, again, I was treated rudely. The owners stopped returning my phone calls. I had to repeatedly call and send emails to get them to finish the work. I would never use
again. Nor would I recommend them to anyone. I have used another contractor for a bigger bathroom upstairs and was very pleased with the work. The crew was professional. The contractor was always there to make sure things were done well. That was impressive. This powder room was a very small job and I should not have encountered any problems with it at all.

"
and crew were on time and worked efficiently every day. They were very professional, clean and polite. Throughout the job I had many questions" and enjoyed watching the progress which they never had any problems or issues with. At all times I was comfortable having them in my home, while I was there and during the day while at work . Mid way through the project I requested that additional work be added to the project scope which there were no issues with. The entire project was finished within the time frame originally agreed upon and exceeded my expectations. Their original bid was very competitive compared to others that I had requested. In the event I need further handyman work at my current home or another I would be happy to use
once again and happily recommend them to any friend or family member.

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.

They sent

out. Very professional, helpful and respectful of your home. He was able to repair everything I had on the list. The more he did the more things i could think of for him to do that I have been wanting to change. I only took away points because of the fact that their Big Deal pricing fluctuates quite a bit, so when I buy at the higher rate, I am little annoyed.

We had a plumbing disaster in the weeks leading up to Christmas and called
Manchester Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to see if he would be able to handle the worst of it before the holidays. To our eternal delight he was able to come out immediately and get the entire job done very quickly. He's proactive and very detail oriented. He identified a small problem with some of the support beams which were exposed during the work and explained what the issue was clearly and why it would be a good idea to fix (and economical since the sheetrock had already been removed).
We have been using

for a collection of smaller jobs around the house and he's always been prompt and reliable, Very transparent on pricing jobs and an all around pleasure to work with. I'd have no reservations at all about recommending him for pretty much any job large or small. Plus he seems to get along very well with my dog...

emailed me a quote for the installation with breakdown of cost of materials and labor. I also asked her to add weather stripping to two of our outside doors. I accepted her quote and we set up the date for the installation. I should also add that we had been trying in vain to get this tile installed for well over a year and could not get anyone to even return our calls since the job was so small.

and her tile

, arrived promptly at 8:30 a.m. and started work immediately. I had to leave for several hours as my husband was in the hospital. When I came back most of the tile was up and they finished in a few more hours, applying the grout and replacing the light switch plates. She had suggested a light gray grout which brought out the color of the stones in the tile and then trimmed the edges with brushed chrome stripping It looks beautiful and I love it.. They also tiled my kitchen window sill. After finishing they scrubbed my kitchen and frankly, left it cleaner than when they arrived. They were competent, professional and polite. I have gotten a quote from them for laminate flooring installation and hope to have that done later this year. They do all kinds of property repairs, maintenance and cleaning and organizing. I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them.

was prompt, did excellent work and his price was very reasonable.
There was one small mis-communication which I will assume blame for. In hanging the rods, I told him the drapes for two rods were 96" long, so he hung those rods 96" above the floor. That means the drapes on those rods now rub the floor. I should have told him to hang the rods at 97". My mistake. Because he is very precise at doing what he is asked, make sure what you tell him is really what you mean.
I will definitely call him again when I need things done.
