"I contacted Academy through Angie's List for my kitchen remodel in
DC.
responded almost immediately which was great: many days" have gone by since I heard from other providers that I contacted. He asked where I lived and I said DC and gave my address. He also came up in a
for my zip code, so I assumed he was able to work in my area. He said "okay. I am out of town. I will contact you when I get back on Wednesday." He emails Wednesday and says " I am not licensed in DC. I bet you have to be licensed to work in your building." I responded that I have several projects I am looking to do that don't require licensing. His response? "I am booked solid for three months." It was clear that he had no interest in my job, which he could have said up front instead of making me wait three days for this
bit of info. I never appreciate the "I am SO BUSY" attitude from contractors-- not great customer service. I am happy if people have enough work, but it is a bad move and very short sighted to turn away business. I am very flexible and want to find the right fit so I don't care if I schedule next week or next month. But its clear that Academy won't be getting my business.

"
was very courteous and professional. I was given an appointment time between 8a and 12p, and he called me at 8a on the dot to say he'd be there in 45 minutes." He was at my door right at 8:45a and immediately began work. He walked through my to-do list and made sure he would only have to go to Home Depot once. My bathroom vanity looks great, he was very diligent in making sure the sink and new plumbing did not link, and the new closet door is perfectly square. Excellent workmanship. He insisted on sweeping up after himself. I will definitely use
for future projects!

and
showed up on time, as scheduled. They went right to work on the repairs. They brought in the replacement window. They purchased and" installed the disposal and faucet. The shower/tub looks very nice now, and was installed over cement board (so it will not have the water problem which was previously an issue. They installed the new faucet, which has a sprayer (just like the old one). They cleaned up very carefully, and took everything out. A thoroughly professional and thorough 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 - 

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.

Great experience working with
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Improvement.
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, the owner, came out to do the estimate and was very polite...almost too polite because he kept calling me
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
'am. He told me what supplies to purchase from Home Depot so that the technician wouldn't use up part of the 3 hours running to Home Depot. He got me on the schedule for the next day.
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, the handyman, called me earlier in the day to give me an estimate of when he would show up and called 30 minutes before he arrived so I didn't have to take the entire day off from work but could rush home within those 30 minutes.
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was very conscientious to put on those slippers before coming into my house and laid down that cloth to ensure nothing scratched up my floors. He took care of my "honey do list" quickly and strategized on the best way to hang a tapestry to a brick wall. Everything was completed within the allotted time. And, a quality control guy came around checking on
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's work. That was a nice touch but also a little over the top.
I would definitely hire
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
Improvement again. The only thing I wish could be changed is if the work could be done the same day as the estimate so you wouldn't have to take so much time off from work to handle these projects. But I understand that it is necessary to ensure the projects can be completed in the time arranged and that you have the right supplies available so time is not wasted having the technician run to Home Depot.

This is the second time we have used

's

service to help us address some problems in our Capitol Hill home, and once again, we were totally satisfied with the outcome. We were noticing some water damage in the ceiling and surrounding walls in our basement kitchen.

and his team arrived promptly and took great care to prep the kitchen before beginning the job so as to minimize dust and protect our countertops and new hardwood floors. They were able to quickly identify the leak, and then they replaced the broken drain pipe, repaired all the damaged surfaces, and repainted the entire room - all within 2 days.

even went out of his way to purchase and install a new faucet for me, even though that was unrelated to the leak or water damage we had hired them to address.
As if that wasn't enough to merit a glowing review,
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
even came back to double-check the work when we got a bit paranoid there might still be some water leaking in the ceiling. Without any complaint, he had his team re-open the ceiling to confirm the leak was completely fixed and we didn't have any additional water coming through, and then repair and repaint the ceiling for a second time - all without any additional charge. You can't get customer service like that these days, and I feel very grateful to have found such a fabulous company for all my future contracting and

Scheduling was a little difficult, with a bit of uncertainty of the time of arrival. The provider showed up prompt and on time. He was courteous and highly professional, working throughout the period with all the tasks provided.

Initial scheduling was difficult because
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was preoccupied with wanting to sell us a deal ("three hours for two people) with the overall cost left indeterminate, but at our insistence he came out and furnished an overall estimate. The overall estimate was acceptable so we contracted with him to do the work. He pledged to do it on a mutually agreeable afternoon but didn't show because his morning job ran longer than expected, calling later on that day to explain than he should have, but apologetically. We agreed to an alternate day which is as it happened, and his work was very accomplished.

I contacted
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
to replace the kitchen sink in a condo that I own in DC. I live in NY, so it can be difficult to arrange work since I'm not in the area.
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
was extremely accommodating. He agreed to receive the delivery of the new sink, and to bring it to the condo for installation. He showed up exactly when he said he would, and kept me up to date on the progress by texting me pictures and descriptions of the work he was performing. Unfortunately, the new sink didn't fit properly, so he had to re-install the old one, which he did without a problem.
I contacted several handymen and plumbers to get quotes on this job, and
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
provided one of the lowest prices AND was the easiest to work with. I'm planning so sell this condo, so I don't know that I'll have the need for additional work, but if I do, I wouldn't hesitate to hire him.

On Monday, we received an e-mail from
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and this is what we received:
Thank you very much for considering
Washington Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
for your bathroom remodel. At this time, we are unable to handle your project. It is too extensive for our company and our schedule is such that we wouldn't be able to get to it for several months. We don't ever take on projects that we think we cannot give 100% to and unfortunately, yours is one that we cannot commit to wholeheartedly.
I personally do not think that this is the reason why they did not want to do my bathroom. It is a gentle let down due to other reasons. I would not recommend this company.

Excellent! The
