Scranton Handyman Services from people just like you.

was very professional, quick and efficient. When it came to the leak in the garage roof,
came up with a solution" that reduced the expense of replacing the roof which was in good shape. Our projects were more fix it projects instead of complete replacement projects. Other bids we received they didn't want to look into fixing instead just replace which cost more and not needed when the framework of the fence, roof and back deck were fine. We would definitely use
again and refer as well. In fact we are thinking of other projects in our house he can help us with!

"I live in a condominium and had a burst pipe in bathroom wall. The building's association called in plumbers and had it fixed, but had left a huge hole in the" wall and had ripped out my bathroom vanity/sink.
and his colleague came in and patched it back up very quickly and beautifully! He first came and gave me an estimate and we scheduled for the fix immediately. Very happy with the results. They even repainted my wall so you would never know there was patch job.

Angie's Answers


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 - 


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. 

COOL!!!  Someone who asks a question actually responds.  Rare.  Love it.  Let us know how things work out.

Handyman reviews in Scranton


The repair person
Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was prompt and courteous. He put in extra reinforcement to prevent the hatch door from falling again. The work took about 2 hours and
Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
assessed that new framing would not be necessary and was able to make it secure it with the existing wood. This saved me extra expence.
- Maryanne S.

- Holly V.

Wonderfully! Can't say enough about how quickly Wenes responded to my call for help when tiles started falling off the wall. He arrived when he said he would, he provided proof of insurance right away and he even answered questions when he was on vacation with his family! He listened to what we felt we could afford and he offered alternatives when asked. I would definitely recommend

and I plan to use them again in my new home.

After being told by Home Depot Delivery that I'd basically have to remodel my kitchen in order to install my new standard sized dishwasher, I was heartbroken.
I checked Angie's List saw that
Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had great reviews and were offering 3 different deals.
I called Angie's List and had a great conversation with
Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. I wasn't sure how much time such a project would would need.
After speaking with him, he assured me that my situation wouldn't be as costly or drastic as the delivery guy insinuated.

The genius who had installed the kitchen floor tiles had "locked" the old washer in place. So, I needed them to be removed and replaced.
Thank goodness I had extra tiles on hand.

After I booked 4 hours of services, I spoke to
Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
. He was very friendly and funny, and gave me confidence that he knew what he was doing. We went over the supplies that he would need, I picked those items up, so that we could save as much time as possible.

The morning of our appointment,
Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
called to let me know that he was on his way, but stuck in traffic. He arrived soon thereafter and got straight to work.

Of course, I had to run out to pick up an 2 additional items,

kept working.
He had disassembled and removed the old Dishwasher to the backyard, so that Sanitation could pick it up on Bulk trash day.

was able to remove the porcelain floor tiles, in question, without breaking them.

He installed the new washer, tested the connections and ran it through its complete cycle.
He seemed to get a kick out of my Ear to Ear Smile!

replaced, cemented and re grouted the tiles CORRECTLY!
My floor and dishwasher look GREAT!

No mess was left for me to cleanup, besides cleaning my floor after giving the tiles time to dry.

I am a Happy Customer!!!

and he replied promptly.
Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
however is a different story, when he called to confirm with me I asked if he was with Mr. Fix it, he couldn't tell me, I had to ask many questions to get an answer. He promised between 9 and 9:30 am and at 9:40 I called to ask if he needed better directions his reply was no he was fine and he arrived at 10 am. I had arranged for my fiance' to be here for the appt and he took

down to the dock,
Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
said simply Nope out of my area of expertise, which was appreciated. Not sure if I'd need to use a handyman again, but I definitely would not hire someone who is late and not apologetic.

Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
did a great job - the door is sturdy and he added flashing to prevent water damage. I would highly recommend him will try to get his help for any future projects!
- Thomas H.

He talked to me first and answered some question I had about this job and some other home issues, then he started on hanging my ceiling fans. He was pleasant and calm as he worked, and did not mind when I asked other questions while he worked. He worked neatly, and spread a blanket to catch any mess. then, he cleaned up afterwards. When he was finished, he also asked me to check his work before he left.

Scranton Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
is a good guy. Does a good job, and maintains a very clean work area. He removed a cracked tile floor in a bathroom and was very neat and clean during a messy job! He removed an old tile backsplash in the kitchen, repaired drywall, and installed a new backsplash. The backsplash is beautiful, he did a great job! He's not always on time, but he does do a really good job!
