Recent Review: Mr. Fixit and his assistant, Ana, removed the old fan and then scraped off any loose ceiling paint. After he was done, I spent 2 days scraping off more of the paint using paint remover, scrapers and sand paper. I was concerned about leaving mildew and mold under the new drywall. After scraping off all I could, I applied a mixture of 20% bleach to the ceiling with a paint roller and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then I scraped again. I followed up with a clean water application also applied with the roller. After the ceiling was dry, I sanded some more areas and spot treated any remaining mildew with the bleach. I had to purchase all of the supplies for the job myself. This included a new fan, venting hose, a soffit vent, 2 4x8 sheets of drywall, drywall tape, wall compound, an 8-foot 2x4, nails, contractors' adhesive, anti-mildew primer, semi-gloss paint and more. I had to borrow a friend's vehicle to transport the drywall to my house from Home Depot. The next time Mr. Fixit came, he was going to install the ceiling fan but it happened to be one of the hottest days of the summer. The opening to the attic crawl space was at the opposite end of the house from the bathroom. When Mr. Fixit got up into the attic, the rafters were not visible because of the blown-in insulation so he tried to lie boards down from rafter to rafter across the attic and then crawl along the boards. After about 15 minutes, Mr. Fixit came back down from the attic and told me he was so hot that he thought he might pass out and fall through the ceiling. It was probably at least 110 degrees up there, if not higher. He said he would have to figure out a way to install the fan and the vent hose from the bathroom. And he did! He and his assistant worked through 2 holes in the ceiling to connect the vent hose from the fan to the soffit vent outside the bathroom window. He then connected all the wiring for the fan and installed it into the hole he had earlier cut out. He fastened the fan housing in place and tested it. He had me put my hand out the window to feel the air coming out. Success! The next time Mr. Fixit came to install the drywall which he managed with only one helper. He taped and put on the joint compound and caulked around the ceiling-wall joint. The next day, he came back to sand and touch up any low spots. Then the primer was applied. I did some touching up myself (more sanding) and then applied the finish coat, an ivory semi-gloss. Mr. Fixit had recommended a semi-gloss since mold and mildew don't attach to it as well as flat paint. I applied a second coat of the semi gloss to a few sections where the taping had been done. The job was complete. The new fan is excellent; very quiet but it moves a lot of air (Nutone). The ceiling is shiny and free of ugly green and black stains. I'm very pleased.
