"Great input about choices and how they might look in the setting. The install was perfect (they ended up doing cutting and binding off-site after the measure) on a continuous staircase" and landings from main to third floor. Awesome, professional, perfect job!

"Right from the first phone call, they were great. Very friendly, lots of details. They picked up and delivered both pieces and that took place exactly as scheduled. The guys who" did the pick up/delivery were great. Very nice, very professional. I went into the shop a couple of times to pick out fabric. They took time to discuss what I wanted to have done, and made good suggestions on better ways to do the work. Both pieces had tufted backs and nail head trim. The finished pieces are just beautiful. So well done. I could not be more happy. I would HIGHLY recommend them based on the final product, the price and because everyone was so nice and great to work with.

"I called
to get information pertaining to the replacement of plastic on my four dining room chairs. The company representative,
, was" outstanding! She provided detailed information and answered all questions thoroughly. She also demonstrated a great sense of humor which was truly refreshing. She arranged for my chair cushions to be picked up from my house. After my cushions were evaluated by the technicians,
called to report the results. In addition to the new plastic coverings, my chair cushions needed new webbing, new foam, and new upholstery. I was provided with an estimated price for the repairs, which I felt was reasonable. Approximately 5 days later,
called to
a delivery of my repaired cushions. The results were outstanding because my old cushions looked newly purchased! Additionally, I was impressed by the expertise, friendliness, and professionalism exhibited by the installer,
. In a few months, I plan to hire
again to refinish my four dining room chairs. Based on the results of my chair cushions, I am confident that my four chairs will aso look newly purchased.

If possible, always visit the upholstery shop to ensure that it's a clean environment and the work is being completed on site, says Harvey. (Photo courtesy of Bahama Upholstering)

Should I hire an upholstery professional for my furniture?

Many people have no idea of the costs or benefits in reupholstering a piece of furniture. Learn how upholstering can benefit your current furniture.

An upholsterer can revitalize an older piece of furniture with new fabric and even restructuring. While the work can be costly, it can be worth it to preserve a well-made item. (Photo courtesy of Angie’s List member Catherine R.)

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!

They were fast, professional, and friendly. Very nice people to do business with and their work was excellent. The chairs look great and the daybed is even nicer than original.

has been working with me for several years as we have re-upholstered our living room furniture. Most of the pieces are antiques, which was the reason I sought

Although the price startled me, he explained that the higher oil prices had made the cost of foam sky rocket. He finished the work quickly and professionally.
Finding his home workshop is interesting, so be sure you print out a map before you go!

It went great. I had gotten two other estimates and one was a little more than

and the other was comparably priced, with cheaper fabric samples. But the cheaper fabric sample woman required I take the cushions to her (rather than her coming to my house) and she had at least a 6 week wait.

was able to get both projects done within a couple of weeks. She was nice to work with and patient with our son's interruptions. I have already recommended her to friends and would/will use her again for future projects. Reupholstering is expensive so I don't want to do that often. It was important to me to find someone to do it right the first time and

All of our work has been completed in a timely fashion. The team goes above and beyond to ensure that we have our pieces as quickly as feasible, and the quality of work is tremendous. We had one piece that needed to be resurfaced, as there was visible seam. It was promptly repaired and returned with no additional charge. We will recommend their work, and continue to use the company for all of our upholstery needs.

They were very helpful from the begining. I went in several times to look at fabrics before placing my order. They were alwys very helpful and helped point me towards fabrics that would wear well and match the look I wanted. Once the couch was delivered, I decided I wanted down cushions instead of foam, so they were able to make new inserts for me. I will be going back to have 2 chairs re-upholstered. They were great to deal with and very accomodating.

visited the house to estimate the job and also helped choosing fabric color and design to fit our decorating. He made it easier to select a covering from the 1000's available. We visited his shop which really boosted our confidence in his ability to do a quality job.
