"I was waiting for my contract with my old alarm system (which I had for 10 yrs) to expire so I could get away from them. Old technology and almost average customer. I did a LOT of" research before settling with
- and I'm glad I did. This company is top notch and their technical support for setup and customer support there after have been phenomenal. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND
to anyone - you won't go wrong.

"I scheduled an installation for an alarm system. This consisted of telling the sales person everything that I wanted in order to feel that I made sure that my house was properly protected." We came up with a 39 month contract, $39.99/month and a $99 deposit. I verbally agreed to everything and paid my deposit prior to scheduling the installation. Several days later my sales person called to tell me that the marketing department did not approve me getting 2 glass break sensors but that they would throw in a door sensor in it's place. The glass break detector was simply too expensive because it was priced at $160. I don't understand the issue since I didn't want the motion detector (we have a dog) or the key chain remote that they "gave" us for free. It seems that they could've just switched both of those 2 things out in place of a glass break sensor. Regardless, I felt that it was unprofessional of them to not at the very least notify me at the time of our verbal agreement and me making a payment, that my package may not be approved. I requested a refund of my deposit instead of dealing with them any further. I don't understand why they gave up $1500 worth of business over $160.

"Spent $99 for 4 door sensors, 1 glass break detector, fire alarm and 1 motion detector. It was easy to install however once we had everything up, we realized we didn't have enough" to fully protect our house. Since we have a dog that is free downstairs, we couldn't really use the motion detector down there. The doors were all secure, however only half of the house was covered by the glass break. I was unable to get a response from our original sales person to find out if we could order additional glass break detectors so we ended up just sending the system back. The return was very
and they were very nice and professional about it. For that fact alone, I would still recommend trying it.

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 recently stopped using
Greensboro Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
. They are a large company and their customer service is no good at all. They are like a Columbia House record type company. You can never get them to stop providing you with services and canceling is a pain. I would not ever use them again. They are not professional and I felt like I was dealing with a big cell phone company or something like that.

we've never had to use our alarm yet, but we do feel very secure with

knowing that they are monitoring our system. The installation went very smoothly and we were satisfied with the price. There was an initial price of $700 for the installation and after that we have been paying $35 a month for the monitoring service.

is a smaller alarm service company in my area. They are more personal than a larger company and very easy to work with. They do a great job for us so far and they have a great customer service team there. To date, I have been really happy with them in all respects.

I truly have never had a problem with this company. They do what they promise to do and they are cheaper than some other places out there. That may be because they are not as large or notorious as some of the completion. I'll tell you what though. They are very responsive, very cordial and very easy to get in touch with. Those things make me not want to seek another alarm service company any time in the near future.

We feel safe and secure with them, especially after the false alarm. When it went off by accident, they called almost immediately. They responded faster than I had thought anyone could. This is a good, dependable company. I would recommend them to all my friends. There have been no problems with their alarm system.

This has been a great system, it has made the whole family feel secure. They took time to explain how the system worked when they were finished. We have accidentally set the alarm off and they called us within seconds. We are very pleased.
