"Buying an already-lived-in home always comes with some things that need changing or repair. Ours was no exception. After several months of trying to find a repairman" who would show up, much less do anything, I got onto Angie's List and found two in my area who sounded really good. The first one I called,
's Painting and More never bothered to respond to my first call or my second. Given my previous trouble with unresponsive repairmen, I didn't bother calling a third time.
called me back later the same evening I called and arranged an estimate visit. He was on time, had definitive answers to all our questions, fixed our bathroom sink stopper at no charge, gave us an estimate that sounded realistic, and then set up times to come do the work. All of this happened right there, right then during his estimate visit. We did have some confusion about how many days all the work would take, but we worked it all out once we realized we had misunderstood. We had to wait about a month because he was booked until then, but when the time came, he and his employee,
, were there. On time. Ready to work. Thank heavens. They worked steadily the whole time except for lunch, were polite, responsive, patient, and efficient. He even gave me a lesson on how the new toilet innards worked so I could adjust it if I needed to. They accomplished so much in one day it took my breath away. The next time was the same. We had to wait about 3 weeks for them to come back to install the sliding door, during which time the toilet developed a leak from the tank. He sent
out the very next morning to take care of it. It turned out that there was a small imperfection in the tank itself that was causing the leak, so it wasn't something anyone would have noticed unless it was pointed out.
worked with it until he found a washer that would seal despite the flaw, so we didn't have to buy a whole new tank. Yay! Sliding Door Day came, and voilá! They were on time and
to go. They assembled the door, installed it, located replacement trim that blends beautifully with the rest of the house's trim (old trim style was no longer available), and put the trim in. The door assembly was thinner than the old French door assembly, so they also inserted additional trim so there wasn't a rim of 2x4s and plywood showing. The end result is professional and so well done that I wouldn't have known there was a problem if
hadn't told me so I could decide which way I wanted him to fix it. Even with three additional small repairs I'd forgotten to include for the estimate, his numbers were good. It cost a little more than he expected because of the thin door/trim problem, but the final cost was still very close to what he estimated. (After my experiences with several houses in various states, I would have been amazed if something unexpected hadn't popped up.) We are very happy with
and the work they did. It is just fantastic to be able to really enjoy our new home at last. We will absolutely call them again the next time we need some work done.

"The owner contacted us and scheduled a day and time to come and give estimate. He showed up and emailed us within a day and then we scheduled day and time to have" project done. They came and did a great job!

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.

and assistant arrived right on time & laid down drop cloths to keep the area they were working in clean. Started working right away. Job took a little longer than expected due to thightness of the location of one of the fans. Installation was done neatly & to code.

explained the details of the installation and had me inspect & use the fans, lights, etc. to be sure it was done to my satisfaction. He also pointed out that if I found any problem with the job, he'd take care of it. Love the quietness of our new Panasonic bathroom fans!!

He was 100% professional from start to finish. He was clear about his availability, set an agreed upon date/time to do the work and communicated in advance of that date/time to assure when he would be arriving that day. He provided a statement of work to be done - materials and labor in advance and requested a portion of the total cost as a deposit in advance. He arrived at the time that he stated and worked very diligently until done. He explained that his estimate of cost required changing because he had not anticipated the degree of rotten wood at the base. He made a trip to get additional supplies and explained that he would not charge me for that time. He repaired the posts so that the base trim is a non-wood product so that in the future I should not have to have additional work done due to rainy/moist weather. After the repairing, he painted the posts. With the light fixture, in spite of the fact that no installation or operational instructions were included in the packaging, he analyzed what needed to be done and assured that the light fixture was functional by testing it. I was 100% satisfied with his professionalism, skills, and quality work for a reasonable cost. I would recommend him to all friends who might ask me for a handyman recommendation.
- Sharon T.

Contractor showed up on time, did exactly what was discussed on our call, and did a very good job. The quality of work was top notch. There were no
Charleston Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
fee's, and I felt I got a good deal. I quoted a few other places out that wanted near $1000 dollars to do the same job. I would recommend Eagle Eye to others that wish to have drywall repair.
The only "con", was they left a tiny bit of drywall mud on in 3-4 spots on my carpet and I am having a hard time getting those spots out. They did a good job of trying to be clean, but its a messy job so I expected some mess.

I called
Charleston Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
about a project I was working on refinishing a powder room.
Charleston Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was actually doing a job in the same town as where we live, so he said he could swing by and take a look. When
Charleston Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
arrived a short while later he looked at the issue I was having trouble with. The problem was, the tile floor we had laid in the powder room, was installed without removing the existing base boards. We purchased new base boards and wainscot for the powder room, I needed to take the old ones out, without disturbing the tile too much.

came up with a few great suggestions and asked if I felt I could finish it or if I need him to help. Suffering chronic back pain, I ask when he was available, knowing he was very busy with up coming jobs. I was shocked when he told me he could fit it in that Wednesday.

is a great guy, he is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We did not end up hiring

- Jeff B.

I first contacted
Charleston Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
on August 20. After a month went buy and I didn't hear from him, I sent a message asking if he was still in business. He responded the next day. He said he was very busy. He came to see my project September 25 and gave me an estimate the next day. It was a much lower price than other contractors had quoted me. He started September 30.

It went very well. It took him four days. One of the days he worked from 9:30 to 7pm. He did everything by himself. He had to leave to get supplies twice, during a lunch break.

Since my existing

backsplash was still intact, he had to research what would adhere to it. He was confident that it would last. I'm happy with the results and relieved that my remodel is over......Thank you
Charleston Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
for your hard work.

Work was urgent. A family member had fallen and we needed to close off the top of the stairs as quickly as possible.

and in spite of their work schedule being full, they came by to scope out the job and then worked in the installation within a few days.
The installation itself took less than a day and was very well done. They were neat, precise and very professional.
We have relied on these folks in the past, and will do so in the future.

was WONDERFUL to work with and reliable. He is personable and arrived quickly to give free estimates, gave accurate work start and completion time frames, did the work we discussed and more we added on. He always showed up on time and took his time to do the work to our satisfaction. We made a few changes along the way, which were handled beautifully. We hired
