"Wow I struck gold when I retained
to repair my door. He is a super nice guy and very professional. He knows exactly what he is doing and" really enjoys his work. He is fast and punctual and wants to get the job done just right or he is not satisfied. I did not think or even imagine that there was a handyman like him out there,,,he is just top notch. Anyone who retains his services can rest assured that they have chosen one of the best with a vast background of experience.

"I was contacted by
due to my request via messaging regarding a free estimate for "molding" fixture repair. We discussed my request" for an estimate and the appointment was scheduled over the phone for late afternoon. The technician arrived promptly and evaluated my request for repairing molding surrounding my tub fixture. He indicated that because they charge by the hour, if I had other work for him to do, it would be best as my request could be completed in 15 mins. I agreed and indicated other minor items plus he suggested I purchase the materials. He provided and estimate and left with the understanding I would schedule the work after picking up the small molding from Home Depot. I received a call from a customer service rep a few business days later stating "I sent a technician to do work and he didn't because he gave you an estimate"...I replied, yes, thats what I requested. The rep stated "That's a waste of time as they could have been on other jobs rather than providing estimates." The job will cost more now due to "not getting it done that day". I replied, "I'm wasting your time by having the technician provide what I requested?". The rep replied, "yes, he was ready to do the job" I said no he wasn't he didnt have any materials and requested I get them, and since it would be quick he could do other jobs within the hour." She stated, no, it will be a different price as on the "estimate." Due to the unprofessional manner in which they chose to communicate and changing of price after verbally providing a quote. They didn't deserve my business and I no longer wanted their service. I indicated I would get service from another business.

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.

The work was fine. However, it is extemely difficult to get in touch with

is honest and extremely talented. He is someone who cares about the quality of his work and that his clients are happy with the finished product. He explains his proposed solution and makes sure you are in agreement with how he plans to address your problem. I liked that he always sought our input. His work is beautiful. He was nice to work with being both friendly and trustworthy around my child and pet!

takes pride in completing a job well done. He knows an awful lot about why things work a certain way having completed college in eastern Europe where he formally studied construction. He understands the underlying mechanical and chemical principles. If you can get him, hire him. You won't be sorry.

Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, Evergreen's owner, met with us after we had talked to the engineer, and outlined all that should be done to remedy the problems. He explained it all very clearly, presenting it as a "cafeteria" from which we could choose what would be done. We told him to do it all. Evergreen brought in a team of four or five men who did the first two steps last fall. They worked hard and kept in touch with us whenever there was a question about repair options. They cleaned up the site, and were always courteous and good-humored in their dealings with us. In the spring they came back and did the exterior grading; and late in the summer they poured the walkway.

and his assistant,
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
, were excellent. I called
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
and he was able to stop by the next day to give me an estimate as he was working in the neighborhood. I needed work done in my laundry room and he recommended some safety upgrades that I was not aware that I needed and very much appreciated. They replaced the outside dryer vent and the plastic flex hose on my dryer with a metal vent. They installed the outlet box for the dryer on the wall and installed a large shelf above the washer and dryer, They also installed a vanity, granite top and faucet and leveled the washer so it no longer “moves” around.

I first hired
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
as an emergency repair when my front door was kicked in.
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
provided wonderful and fast service. He not only repaired the door frame quickly but replaced the lock as I was out of town. At this point, I was sold and trusted him to complete other items in my home. I purchased a new front door, 2 bedroom doors, 1 bathroom door and asked for installation, paint and painting of existing doors and frames. Since I travel and was not in town, I decided to pay
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
up front for all work. BIG MISTAKE.
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
installed the doors, yes, but never ever should have told me he was a painter. He and his son are definitely not painters. I found putty which looked like a wad of gum, throughout the entire baseboard, painted over. The paint brush must have been full of paint for the amount of sloppy painting that is all over my walls and wood floors which now I have to scrub to clean. The brand new doors look nothing like brand new doors should as the installation and painting is awful. The installation of one bedroom prehung unit is crooked which I had to pay more money to have corrected.
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
then replaced one door that I never asked him to touch, and he only replaced the door slab instead of the entire unit. WHERE IS THE FRAME? He obviously took the frame with him. I could have purchased a $20 door slab instead of $120 for a prehung if it wasn't going to be installed. Nevertheless, he changed the wrong door out!
He then painted over the doors and the old doors as asked, again, sloppy paint, getting clear coat all over my walls which now have to be addressed. He then closed the doors before they dried. Once the doors opened, all the paint peeled back off and are in worse shape now than before. I also changed the hardware out about a year ago, so all is brand new and looks great. Not now!
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
got paint all over every handle that was perfectly clean before. And never bothered to clean it off.
Somewhere in the process
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
sat something on my brand new counters in my master bath and has scraped and galged the soap stone finish. I don't know what was set on the counter but it never should have been there. The counter is less than a year old.
In order to correct these issues, I left
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
multiple messages which were not returned. I requested a refund and additional funds for the work he not only did poorly, but damaged other items in the process. Not to mention, took off with a door frame that was meant to be replaced. I also went to
Ballston Spa Handyman Services Provider Name Locked
's business address which is his home. I knocked and rang the door bell, could hear people inside, but was never addressed. I left when no one would open the door.
This process started out fine but ended horribly. Never pay a contractor until the work is complete!

It went fabulously well. They went the extra mile to accommodate our schedule. They worked efficiently and easily solved the problems that come along with moving such as when furniture won't fit through doorways. They took good care of everything they moved. They were professional and competent. We will definitely call them again for both this and other services they offer.
