"They initially made a mistake that affected electrical circuit in living room, but the company came back at no cost to repair the damage and was very professional." This company is HIGHLY responsive and extremely professional! I would definitely recommend for use in the future.

texted me within hours of contacting him to schedule an appointment, and was available to come do the work the next day. He and his coworker" were professional, knowledgable, and efficient. They were also very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend!

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.

Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's work was good and professional and included a quick run to Home Depot for a part. He was honest that he was unable to fix/rehang one set of sliding doors. The scheduling of the appointment--which I did through Angie's List email--was problematic. The first appointment that he made with me, he didn't show up and when I called him, it was clear that he hadn't noted it down and had no plans to. It took some work to get a response to schedule again.

was responsive and punctual and his price was very fair for the amount of work he did. He and his brother arrived on time with all the appropriate supplies needed and got right to work. It took them about six hours to complete the job and they did quality work. I would definitely hire

did a terrific job weatherproofing our door, aligning it, and putting installation around the air conditioning unit in a closet. He arrived exactly on time and completed the work within the allotted period (3 hours). He even offered to do a few minor tasks in the remaining few minutes--staying a few minutes extra to complete his work. Highly recommend the purchase of this voucher and this service--will use

A couple of things to note: You have to provide the materials or they charge you for the hour it takes them to buy the material.
Also, it would have been a little quicker especially since they charge every 30 mins.
Work done was very good and the person was very professional. Its worth the value.

We initially hired

for a few minor jobs, like installation of pencil trim and towel bar. The
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
made some excellent recommendations and after noticing his great work, we extended the contract to include several other jobs, including purchase and installation of shower doors, etc. The company sent 2 handymen for 3 days, both very punctual, courteous and professional. They cleaned the premises at the end of each day and were very professional. During 2nd day, a supervisor came to check on the work, and every night

It went horribly...
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Ball the owner was inattentive, uncommunicative, and offered no supervision to worker. Mr.
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
dropped worker off mornings and picked him up in the early afternoon. The job was projected to take 2 weeks. The work began off schedule. An amount was designated for fixtures, he spent approx. half on fixtures. Receipts were not forthcoming. He was slow to order items even though he had been provided the funds. Tile was cut and laid incorrectly. The wall tile protruded beyond the door frame. The floor tile did not intersect with the door threshold...which was filled with grout. The floor tile did not intersect with the wall tile. Un even (dark brown) caulk was spread along the (white) door frame. Dark brown caulk was unevenly spread around the white bath tub and along the painted wall. Grouting in the floor tile appears to be cracked or missing. The bathtub/shower faucet was installed improperly resulting in a steady leak. The vanity was not fitted to wall. The sink faucet installed was not the selected item. The selected item needed a valve which had to be purchased separately which the owner did not do. No detail was paid to measurements, so some items exceed what was needed while other items were short of what was needed. The sink installment was flawed: no cut off valve, a large hole was left around the pipes. The medicine cabinet was not installed. no towel racks or paper holder were installed. A substantial amount of the materials were damaged. The job looked so BAD, the Superior Court of the District of Columbia Civil Division ordered the company to reimburse me $3675 (a judgment against the company
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Construction Inc., the formal name of the company). The company had been paid $10,000 of the $14,000. I did not allow the company into the second BR. Last, Mr.
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
seemed to be comfortable not telling the truth regarding the allowance money, slow to submit receipts, bought items that I felt to be damaged items (the bathtub). I would never recommend the company to anybody. Guests are stunned at how very bad the job was done. They do compliment my choice of tile!

It was pretty bad. Innitially everything went well, administratively, scheduling, all that kind of stuff. The work was supposed to be for six hours of handyman labor but he changed it because he felt like he needed an apprentice. He then tried to charge me for each of them equally- three hours from each individual. So I called him and renegotiated and he took it to four hours and adjusted the rate accordingly to his helper but the helper had no experience. He could only maybe hold the microwave or the ceiling fan. This work took them the whole day and he wanted to charge me for the excess of time. I thought the work itself was pretty poor. When they installed the ceiling fan, they had to pull down the old ceiling and they didn't clean that up.
