"I was referred to
by a friend. I had purchased a mid century sofa and chair and they badly needed to be reupholstered.
was pleasant on" the phone and I appreciate the fact that she suggested I shop for upholstery fabric at other stores/websites as she did not offer very much variety and the cost for the fabric wouldn't be as competative. Her suggestions for fabric types to use was very helpful. She arrived at our home when she said she would, looked at the furniture, sat on it, etc. She was very professional and explained the furniture needed new foam cushions. In addition, she helped me finalize the color for the welting for the cushions for both chair and sofa (which were to be reupholstered in two different fabrics) so the pieces would fit in with the rest of the room and coordinate with my drapes. She was also able to accomodate my request to cover up some wood accents on the arms of the couch. Without requesting it, she had arm covers made for the couch and also returned my extra fabric. Her pick up/delivery guys are also very professional, efficient and polite--and there is no extra fee for them to pick up/drop off your furniture. Because we had just had our floors refinished, they applied felt circles to the bottom of the furniture legs so they wouldn't scratch the floor. The striped fabric on the chair lines up perfectly, the sewing and quality of the foam are top notch. The large houndstooth pattern on the sofa was centered properly and lines up from top cushion to bottom cushion as well. we've been sitting on the furniture for 3 months now and there is no stretching of the fabric. We have received so many compliments on our "new" mid century living room set--and I spent way less than if I purchased new custom furniture. I love the fact that this is a father/daughter owned business, and that the business owner actually comes out to meet with you. Their pricing is so competative and the quality so impressive I am having them reupholster two more chairs that were damaged by a moving company--can't wait to get another set of "new" furniture!

"Around May 1, 2011, we decided to re-do the old furniture and replace the window treatments. We requested estimates and decided to go with
as the best source" for the entire package. We made several trips to the shop to look at materials, and on May 18, with the able help of
, made our choice and finalized the order. Due to the price of the material we chose, the company reduced the original estimate. The love seats were picked up on June 8 and were completed and delivered in mid-
, about four weeks earlier than promised. The drapes and sheers followed soon after. Some items needed adjustments and tweaking and they were properly handled. These included our dissatisfaction with the pleating of the drapes and our request that the raised love seat legs be made even taller. Overall, we were completely satisfied with form, fit and function. Our only problem was the difficulty in getting hold of the busy owner,
, when we needed to discuss or report a problem.

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 would use him in the future. The quality of his work was excellent. He was professional while he was working. He was a very pleasant person to work with. I would recommend him.

returned our phone call promptly, and arrived on time to pick up the chair (we had already purchased the fabric). He gave us an estimate on the spot then delivered the chair to us within the promised 2-week time frame. There was no charge for either pick up or delivery. We are very pleased with the results; the chair looks great! We will definitely use them again.

I really like this company and

as their front man. They are very helpful in the fabric choosing process, but do not mind if you provide your own. They are good at making small repairs, which may be necessary. They also will make throw pillows.

The type of foam used in the seat cushions of the couch and chair was not what my wife and I wanted. No work was done to tighten up the suspension. As a result we have a couch and chair that look great, but sit horribly. We called with our concerns and were told that the husband part of the team would come out to our house and see about the problem. He never came. That was over a year ago.

is fabulous. Friendly, nice, professional. The $230 was for a stuffed living room chair - pretty inexpensive in my book. He will come for a free written estimate at your house and will pick up and deliver for you. I do not know if they have a geographic limit for the pickup/delivery service. I provided my own fabric, so I don't know if they offer that service, but they did a bang-up job on a hideous chair- now my favorite in the house. He called as soon as they realized that I didn't provide enough fabric (my own fault, not theirs) and he came by to pick up the replacement fabric. The turn around time between pick up and delivery was a month or less - pretty fast considering past experiences where things were held hostage for months at a time. He brought his estimate with him when he delivered and stuck with the price. I will continue to hire
