If you don't feel like reading the whole report, here is the main point: When you need an electrician, call an electrician. When I first talked to Gary, I listed the things I wanted done and asked if he would be able to do the exhaust fan - mentioning that it would need to be wired into an existing light switch. He said he definitely could do everything else on my list, and if the electrical work was beyond his capability, he would give me the name of an electrician who could do it cheaply. On his first visit he replaced the toilet mechanism and noticed that the toilet was rocking and fixed that too. He also installed a robe hook, two towel racks, and a toilet paper holder. I thought it was taking him a bit long to do these things, but apparently one of the towel racks was giving him trouble. It fell off the first time I hung a towel on it a couple of hours after he left. He had installed one of the brackets in a crevice of the shower surround, and it was too recessed for the screw on the towel rack to catch and hold. I fixed it later, and it has held ever since. Since he did a lot of different things - some well, and some not so well - I'll grade him individually on each part below: Replaced toilet mechanism and handle: A Fixed rocking toilet: A+ (He did this without me mentioning that it needed to be done.) Installed robe hook: B (My written list specified to put it 2 inches away, but he put it on top of the spackle from my failed attempt to install the hook. This will make repainting my mistaken effort a bit tricky - a minor annoyance.) Installed small towel rack: B (a tiny bit crooked) Installed toilet paper holder: C (more than a tiny bit crooked) Installed large towel rack: D (fell down immediately and I had to figure out how to fix it and get it to hold.) On his second visit he was about 10 minutes late, but did call to tell me that - hence the B in punctuality. On this visit he replaced the ballasts in some overhead lights, anchored the bathroom sink, attached the bathroom baseboard, and attempted to install the ceiling exhaust fan. Again - these items need individual comments, so see below. Replaced ballasts: A Anchored bathroom sink (and tightened a screw to stop a leak): A Attached bathroom baseboard: C (In several places the top of this isn't snug against the wall.) Attempted to install ceiling exhaust fan: F After Gary had been working on the ceiling fan about two hours, I peeked in to see how it was going. I was surprised to see the main light switch cover off since I had asked him to hook the fan to the light switch controlling the shower light, not the main light switch. I also noticed the hallway lights flickering on and off, so when Gary came down from the attic, I asked him if he was sure he was going to be able to do this. He said that the wiring in the attic wasn't labeled and he almost had it figured out. After about another hour, I checked again. This time, when he turned the power on, the main light in the bathroom didn't work, the shower light didn't work, and the fan didn't work. I told him that I needed to use the bathroom. He said he was going back up to the attic to switch wires anyway. When I saw him through the hole in the bathroom ceiling, I yelled up - "I'm still in here" and he yelled down - "I'm not looking" - hence the grade of C in professionalism. When he came down from the attic, I told him that I had lost confidence that he could do the job and that he should re-hook up the lights the way they were and give me a bill for what he had done. At this point the shower light worked, but the main bathroom lights didn't work. He went back up to the attic and switched the wires again. When he came down and turned on the power, the bathroom light switch controlled the hallway lights, the shower light still worked, and the fan didn't work. At that point, he was going to try to switch them again, but I had had enough and asked him to leave. To his credit, he didn't charge me for the time he spent working on the ceiling fan - hence the A for the grade in price. It was 2 weeks before I could get an electrician to come out and fix everything. So for 2 weeks, I had no main light in the bathroom, no fan in the bathroom, and the hallway lights worked off of the bathroom light switch. The electrician who fixed it had to switch all the wiring in the attic, so I ended up paying another person $140 to fix the wiring issues + $200 to install the fan. Moral of the story - don't hire a handyman when you need an electrician.
