"It took us a while to figure out what we wanted and
worked with us and our changing ideas. The walls that he built and the rooms created" are great. The ceiling tiles and doors and doorways are amazing. It really transformed the space we had in terms of appearance, sound transfer and improved how we will use the space. It took about two months to build two rooms, a hallway, entrance way to room, closet, and everything else noted above.
was responsive and let us know when he could be at our house and worked with my husband so that we could do parts of the job that saved us money. He also ended up helping us rebuild our basement after it flooded. We will definitely use
in the future.

"the renovation job was excellent. the trailer was already move in ready, but I wanted new drywall throughout, and a "home" feel. The outside still needs" updating, but the inside is absolutely beautiful. My kitchen is my favorite room in the trailer with a custom made kitchen, beautiful countertops, a bronze sink and faucet, and stainless steel appliances. Anyone that has ever been inside my trailer cannot believe just how beautiful and my kitchen has received numerous praises. The bathroom has Italian tile, completely redesigned, with a custom made closet. The second bedroom also has a huge closet that was custom made, as well as a custom made hall closet. Absolutely gorgeous work!!

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.

Phill did an excellent job. During the day, he kept us informed of how the job was being done. When something was not clear, he asked. While he was working on something, he took to time to explain why and how things were being done.

Rich and his son,
Newark Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, are terrific. They came to the house on two separate occasions - once for various odd jobs and once for drywall repair. They are prompt, reliable, honest, and hardworking. The most time consuming factor in the list of odd jobs was the pocket door. I'd indicated that if the job was going to be very involved that I didn't want to bother having it fixed, but to their credit, they took a lot of time to try to figure out the problem and determine a solution. Once they reached the conclusion that to repair the pocket door would involve removing the door frame, etc., I opted not to have them continue with the work because having the pocket door functional was not critical to me. However, despite all of the effort that they put into it, they didn't charge me anything because, as Rich said, he only charges for things that get done. If that doesn't prove his honesty, I don't know what will! They also did a great job on the drywall repair and were very efficient and cleaned up the workspace once they were done. I also appreciate that they are very down-to-earth, genuinely nice people that I don't mind having in my home. I never feel like I have to keep an eye on what they're doing, because I know the job will be done quickly, correctly, and if there is any issue or question whatsoever, Rich will let me know immediately.
I would definitely recommend Rich to anyone who is in need of

services. I can't say enough nice things about the work that he does, and the honesty and integrity that comes with it.

and crew. When giving the quote, he explained every detail of what needed to be repaired and what could wait until a later time. They were punctual and made sure everything was perfect before they left. I am definitely calling him again to complete the other items on my list. Would recommend to everyone!

's crew showed up on time every day at 7am and worked diligently through out the day until about 6pm. They communicated very well and asked questions about items to make sure the work was done correctly. They cleaned up every day. They covered areas around the work area to minimize dust. They sealed off parts of the house with plastic shielding to minimize dust.
The work done was excellent quality.
Newark Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
came by regularly to check on the progress and give updates. The crew was hardworking and very professional. They even worked some Saturdays and one Sunday to get the job done. The cost of project was reasonable and came in right on budget. The timeline to complete all the work was reasonable and was done on time.
I will definitely be calling on

in the future for more projects.

was quite thoughtful and helpful with his suggestions for dealing with some of our problems. I was impressed with his aptitude to come up with innovative and cost-effective solutions that I thought would require much more work/expense to accomplish. I think he is quite trustworthy and willing to work hard.

is amazing with details – he's our new go-to-guy!
I sent him photos of the area that needed repair. We then spoke on the phone, where I described in detail the work that needed to be done. He came over, gave me an estimate and returned to install the cabinet. It was a tricky job, because the cabinet maker had incorrectly measured for the space and
Newark Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
had to do quite a bit of measuring and cutting in order to make the cabinet work.
It fit like a glove – he pushed the (drawer) microwave into place and voila perfect! I truly appreciated his attention to detail, and how he described exactly what he was going to do with the installation/fix.
Can't say enough great things about him/his work.
