"From my first email last year asking for a ballpark estimate,
responded promptly to my different questions, made great suggestions on my" design, quickly came up with a very reasonable estimate, and we easily agreed on a date to do the work. He spent two days to build the bookcase, with one crew member. They were very professional, worked quickly and neatly in and outside despite freezing temperatures, their workmanship is great, they cleaned up completely and the bookcase is exactly what I had hoped. I am happy to recommend Acacemy Remodeling without hesitation and would use them again for any size job!.

"
was eager to make an appointment with me. He called the day of the appointment and asked if they could come an hour early, which was great." They were friendly and immediately got to work. They did everything I needed in 15 minutes. I will definitely call again.

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.

The provider had to do some work over, because he put the shelving too close. He forgot about our second appointment until I called. However, he did a good job.

They did the work with the quoted price and were able to finish the project ahead of schedule. They were required to work with a very tight schedule and had to work around some of our ongoing activity during construction. They were able to accommodate our needs very well. They kept the construction area very neat and the work areas were always well organized. They followed through on some punchlist items with subcontractors and were a great help in getting some small but important details resolved.

has been working on my house for over a month helping me get ready to get it rented. We first discussed two specific projects, the replacement of the front door and a new porch ceiling. He completed both within the time specified and is also doing other things (spackling, painting, etc.) to help get the house ready for inspections.
I would highly recommend

, especially if you live in the West

We are quite pleased, both with the result and with the time it took for the work to be done.

was prepared for the jobs and there were no delays. In fact, he came early due to weather problems that delayed another job. The exterior entrance steps and porch were designed and constructed beautifully. The ice and snow and rain have not entered the house, as the exterior door is expertly installed. We are in Hillsborough.

I had an addition that needed to be finished off before the holidays and had just too much to do otherwise. I got the big deal for the
Defiance Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, and they really helped me out! I know that it was hard to come in and finish off someone else's vision, but the guys were great, finished off the drywall, texture, bullnose corners (that were very difficult in some areas to do: inversions, wood headers, small spaces, etc.), they also helped trim everything out and seal everything up. They also trimmed back an access/cleanout pipe that was sticking out (and an eyesore) in the addition and now, it is all covered up. Thanks for the great work!

was communicative over phone and text, punctual, and diagnosed and repaired the garage in a flash. He made good recommendations based on an obvious body of technical knowledge and charged a very fair price for the work that he did. The garage was the first of many repairs for a new home. I'm happy to have found him here on
