" , who we used at our old home. When you get up and running first they will send a person out to look over your home and give you some options on what system best will suit your house. Our guy called me and was very nice and gave me the options of a wired vs. wireless system. He said the wireless was a little more per month but would be less install, whereas the wired would save me $6 monthly but be more expensive to install as we could not re-use some of the existing wiring in the house. He didn't put a hard sell on me for additional items or anything like that, which goes a long way with me. I can't think of the last time I dealt with a large national chain that they didn't try and upsell me on something. That is why I like dealing with local businesses like
. Anyway, after he leaves you set up an appointment to have the system actually installed and set up. The tech arrived on time, was very nice to my wife and went through everything with her on how to work the system and access the online features. We had an issue after he left with a motion detector where it was being triggered and setting the siren off even when the system was not armed, and they were able to fix it over the phone. They are always very nice and professional when they call after an alarm. Every now and then we forget it is armed and open a back door to let our dogs out, etc. and set it off by accident. They call immediately, ask for the information, and are very professional.

was our installer and did an excellent job. He was prompt, personable, and professional. He came in behind Xfinity because we had to have a primary smoke alarm" system per code for our remodel and Xfinity was not able to provide that. He got the job done with no problems.

was our installer and was prompt and courteous. We had to remove components of the previous system as well as add several smoke alarms, motion detectors, and" heat sensors throughout the house. There was lots of work to be done, and
made it look easy and was extremely polite and clean for the entire day. At the completion of the work he took the time to go over the entire system and answer all of my questions. We went with
after looking at a number of companys and decided on them based on reviews, personal refferals and their cost.

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!

PROS: Hard wired alarm system was here when we bought the house. Like the chime when doors open.
CONS: The glass break wasn't working when we set the system up after moving in, they just said it wasn't working and made no effort to repair it. The batteries have twice failed and instead of someone from the company calling me to check if something is wrong, an automated system calls my phone to say the batteries are going dead. What if someone had cut the power??
When I call them there is usually a long hold time, but the people are nice enough. I just feel like I have an alarm system without proper back up.

Renters-think twice. This system is good, BUT if your landlord stops
your lease and you must move each year, a 3 year contract will cost you a
LOT! $99 initial $30 per sensor for each additional sensor THEN $42 +
per month monitoring. Over 3 years that works out to almost $2000. The $30 per
sensor more is huge if you have several doors and ground floor/easily
accessible windows or patio doors. System easy to use, but if you move,
and move somewhere that already has a system installed then it costs
80% to buy out the contract. Oy - is all I have to say and 17 more
months of monitoriing required (OR 80% upfront to buy out).

We have been very pleased with

. Starting with the quote process, through installation, to ongoing monitoring,

has provided quality and professional services. I only gave them a B on punctuality, because the reps were very late to a scheduled appointment (but at least they called to tell me they were late). Pricing for install and ongoing service is comprable to ADT and other alarm companies.

I really appreciated
Memphis Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
's thoroughness when he came out for the initial visit. He took the time to actually tell me the locations that were at risk, and pointed out
Memphis Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, free ways to secure the house. His many years of experience in installing alarm systems meant that he was able to easily size up not only our house's needs, but what we needed because of our neighborhood. He took the time to answer my many questions, and helped me to understand the many different approaches alarm salesmen have in convincing a prospective customer to purchasing their product(guilt trip, lowering price, throwing in freebies, high pressure techniques). I was nice having someone explain how different companies approached a customer. OK, so the installation was set up for the next day after I call them with my decision. The two technicians were prompt and obviously experienced-I liked knowing that it was UL listed electricians installing my system. They were fast with the installation, but they took the time to not only explain how the keypad worked, but(good teaching method)had me do several procedures with them right there for practice. Other pluses: Locally owned company, excellent reputation in the area, provides all the support that the big national companies do. You pay more money upfront with the installation and cost of the equipment, but then you own it, ultimately saving you money in the long run. We are paying $20 a month for monitoring, charged quarterly.
