"My experience with Distinctive Fabric was excellent from start to finish.
was such a guiding light in helping me find fabrics and then kept me posted on the" status of things as we went along. I had a deadline and they were able to beat it. The club chairs and dining room seats look spectacular....I am a very happy customer!

"I called them to find out when I could drop my fabrics off. They are very flexible. When I was there, we discuss the specifications for my pillow shams (dimensions, etc.). She gave" me a time-frame for them to be completed. She said one and a half weeks, but I was pleasantly surprised to get a call a week later. My shams were ready! When I picked them up, they were just as I had requested. I can't wait for my next project to begin!

"They had fabric swatches available, but "suggested" we try
's Fabric Store in Gastonia, which resulted in a fabric cost of 1/3 to 1/4 of their" fabrics. We delivered the furniture to them the next day, saying we needed it in 2 weeks (before company coming for Thanksgiving). They called 2 days before the promised date and said they were ready. The Quality downgrade is the result of their underestimating the quantity of fabric required. However, they even went to the fabric store to see if any more of the fabric was available (it wasn't); then they called to explain the situation and suggested piecing the fabric on the back of the sofa. This was an acceptable solution, since the sofa sits against a wall. They added padding to the cushions and generally did a very good job.

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had


?
I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.


?
I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.

?
Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

I had work done by

a few years back and lost contact with them when they moved. I have not been satisfied with others I recently used and thanks to Angie's list I found Mr.
Charlotte Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
again. He upholstered a large ottoman with a lot of tufting and a pop out seat for a bench. Both were expertly done. A nice touch is that although promised the job in three weeks (due the 23rd), they did it a full week before. We are going to have them do two wing chairs in February. Highly recommended.

Mr.

was able to repair the footrest skirts using the armchair covers and other fabric so that we didn't have to totally re-cover the two pieces of furniture. It was an involved upholstery job since he had to take apart most of the footrest upholstery to do the repairs (and replace the skirt linings), so the price was fair....More />

is a quiet unassuming man who does very fine work from a less than perfect location. His work is exemplary and he is the kind of man we should all do our best to become acquainted with as his like is rapidly fading from the earth. An honest, hard working and skilled artisan at his craft... I will use his services often

They were great and I would use them again. They aren?t very far from my house so I have been by their business numerous times. I pulled in one day, spoke to one of them, and just looked around at their samples. I found something that would work so they came out to my house and gave me an estimate for doing it with that sample. They took the chair, did the upholstering, and it is a beautiful chair now.

Took two cushions in to the store to find out price and length of time for completion. Ed was very pleasant to work with and gave me a very fair quote and said he could have them to me the next day. I was extremely surprised he could get them done so quickly but very happy. Next day Ed called to let me know they were done and I could pick them up anytime. The final price was the same as quote and the cushions looked beautiful.

They were very courteous and provided a good estimate for the work. I saw examples of some of the work they had done, and they were up front about one piece of furniture (leater recliner) that it was going to cost much more than it was worth.
