"This was more or less an emergency situation resulting from a burst water pipe during one of the recent cold waves.
was very thorough in" his estimate, pointing out some things I hadn't noticed. He seemed particularly concerned that the job was done correctly, even providing good suggestions for insulating the pipe that burst before covering the area with drywall. He was good about letting me know when the workers would arrive and they all arrived very close to the appointed time. I especially appreciated the fact that he arranged for an additional painter on the last day to ensure the work was completed in a timely manner (to suit my schedule). I would not hesitate to employ
again.

"They do very good work. I'm very happy with them. They’re very accommodating. Some people they bring out are very experienced, though others seem like" they’re new. The company is aware of that and they work to balance that out. Not cheap, but worth the premium cost.

Hiring a Handyman
Handymen

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.

From my first email last year asking for a ballpark estimate,
Washington DC Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
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!.

The provider was not flexible with the scheduling aspect of the job and wanted to send an estimator to look at the services I need rendered and then schedule an appointment afterwards to complete the services I need. I have now requested a refund from Anige's list.
