"A general contractor, of & Sons, that we hired" for a home renovation abandoned the project halfway through and kept the money that we paid him in advance for incomplete work. He also did not pay his subcontractors. & Service, LLC. was one of those subcontractors. We called the waste company and asked them to please remove the huge dumpster had left behind in our driveway the day after we terminated as our contractor. The waste company owner, , said that 's credit card was declined, but continued to empty the dumpster several times and run up the bill until we fired and called to have the dumpster removed. Then said he would not remove the dumpster unless we paid the bill of $1700. He tried to convince us to pay $1050 the first time we called to have the dumpster removed, then $825 the second time we called. He had resorted to calling us "pathetic" over the phone and threatening to leave the dumpster blocking our driveway indefinitely until we "make him an offer." We are also concerned that if/when he comes to retrieve his dumpster, he will dump the contents on our property instead of removing and disposing of it. His service agreement is with , and we already paid 10s of thousands of dollars for incomplete work (and some work that will need to be redone), including $1800 for dumpsters. Under Arizona law (A.R.S. 33-981 and 33-1002) does not have a legal claim against us or our property because our home is owner occupied. However, he does have the option to the contractor, , to collect the debt owed. With no legal claim against us, it appears he had essentially resorted to extortion instead of doing the right thing, cutting his losses, collecting the dumpster, and pursuing proper legal action against the contractor he had an agreement with.

" provided my company with a 15 yard dumpster for our dirt excavated during drainage improvements around our building. The owner " provided me with detailed instructions for loading limits on dumpster and specific with type of materials allowed in dumpster. I scheduled to have the dumpster delivered the next day due to time restraints with parking availability. The driver ( ) delivered the dumpster early the next morning on time and was very helpful with additional dumpster instructions. We were able to fill up the dumpster that day up to the designated line and picked up the following day upon our request and convenience. quoted me a price over the phone upon delivery and sent an invoice once the dumpster was picked up that matched the price that we had set up (no fees). There is no doubt in my mind that I will use and refer with any projects in the future.

Dumpster Service and Garbage Collection

While most homeowners can take care of basic trash disposal on their own, large jobs, such cleaning out your basement or renovating your bathroom, require a more complex process.

20 things to throw away
Organization - Home & Garage

Looking to get your home organized? Here's a list of 20 things to get rid of quickly.

We've all been there. Even the nicest of neighbors can have some pretty annoying habits.

Before you toss it, check the label. Hazardous items — like batteries and ink cartridges — should be disposed safely, which doesn't mean at the curb!

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.

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.


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.




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!

My family needed to clean out the family home that the family had lived in for over 40 years. We set up the service from Yakima, Wa and timing was crucial. We had family coming from Florida, Virginia, California and to help. had the dumpster at the house early. The dumpster was clean and easily accessible. ...More We filled the dumpster by mid-day and and his team agreed to come out that evening to dump the unit and return it so that our work would not be interrupted. They even charged us less for our third and final load because it was not a full load. could not have been more accommodating and professional. We had great communication and they even cleaned up the area when they left. I would highly recommend to anyone with such a need. Thank you and and at !

I needed a dumpster on my property for a remodel. I had a very tight schedule. I called them and told them I needed a dumpster delivered at 4:00 pm on april 22, 2204... And that they could not miss that time because it would mess up the whole schedule... Guess what... It was there as promised!!! I was very pleased with everything they provided.

The whole process was very painless. I called and got the dumpster delivered the next morning. Upon delivery, I was asked exactly where I would like it placed and boards were put down to ensure that my driveway wasn't damaged.

It was an added ...More bonus that the dumpster was very clean and wasn't nearly the eyesore that most are.
- Neil H.

Drivers arrived when expected, placed the dumpster exactly where I specified and picked it up without complications. Communication regarding pricing and scheduling was friendly, precise and efficient even though it was obvious I would be an intermittent customer at best. The dumpster was a well-maintained and all its moving parts were functional. ...More I expected an overweight charge and the weight they reported seemed plausible, although I had no way to verify it independently except by approximation.

A class act that understands the value in an appointment system and most important didn't give me the run around on pricing.
