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!

Auto Upholstering reviews in Seattle


We have done business with this company for over ten years. So when we purchased a used 2005 Corvette and the seat cushion was worn, went to him for an estimate. He stated that the only fix would to be to purchase a new seat cushion which I did at a Chevrolet dealer, he then installed it the very next day. He is always prompt with the responses, and with the repairs. His prices are very fair, and all the jobs we had done over the years to our family's vehicles have been excellent.
- Fiona MacDonald B.

Very quick service. Car was inspected and quote offered on the spot. I didn't shop around so I have rated price as "N/A".
- James S.

Contact by email and phone was prompt, professional courteous.
Seattle Boat And Auto Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
, the owner of the company is very nice, and answered all questions. He asked me to email pictures, so he could do an email bid. I emailed the pictures, and he responded same day. I was especially pleased that he said the finished product would be as durable or more durable than the original seat. He arrived at my home on time with all necessary tools, chemicals, and protective covers.
I watched as he cleaned the leather, sanded the rough leather, stained it several times, and applied a sealant. Wow! Fantastic. Literally looked brand new! As I watched, I learned about leather, and will definitely use a leather conditioner every 3 months as he recommended.
In fact, I was so pleased, that I had him look at my leather chair, that was soiled by my scalp oil darkening the leather from
Seattle Boat And Auto Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
to almost black. I asked him if he would continue working and repair the chair for me. He agreed, and we set the price for the chair. He and I then found several smaller, less seriously soiled places, which he said he would treat as a courtesy. I hired him on the spot to repair the chair, and have already written the check to pay him.
This is one of the best repair jobs I have ever experienced in my life. Again, the car seat looks brand new. I just can't believe the result. If you want too see some more of his work, check www.

Easy to schedule. Work done all in the same day. Car dropped off 8:30am and received call that work was complete before 3p
Workmanship was excellent and such a good color match!!! I am sooooo pleased. I would certainly recommend anyone to use this business. Good people.
- Cheryl J.

We were VERY impressed with the service! The job was more extensive than we originally thought it would be but we feel it was worth every penny.

, the owner, is proud of his business - AND his staff! - and was delighted to show us the finished product. In addition to doing the work that needed to be done, He stayed in constant communication with us while the car was in his care.

detailed the inside and outside of the car. Hasn't looked this good in 12 yrs since it was new! We would definitely refer friends to him and return to him ourselves.
- Candida S.

The quality of work was good. They were easy to deal with. I explained to them what I needed. He looked at the piece. He quoted me a price right then and there, and it was done within a week. He just happens to be closer to my house. So, it was more convenient.
- Andrew C.

The one seat cost $550.00 for complete replacement of the leather on the seat and back of seat. The new headliner cost $250.00.
The car took much longer than stated to do the work. There was very poor attention to detail. This was evident when I went to pick the car up after being told it was ready for me.The seat had not been placed back correctly as it moved and jiggled
before being securely bolted down. Had to point this out to even though
car was supposedly ready to go.
The headliner was left extremely dirty around the sun roof area and had seams showing. I was told to buy a bottle of clear Windex and clean this area myself ! The roof lights above the visors also kept falling out as they would not securely stay in the new headliner. Also, the headliner was not tacked correctly on both sides of the rear of the car and was never properly secured.The owner did offer to fix this problem saying it would take a few hours for his crew to fix the problem. Unfortunately, my car was involved in an accident and I have not been able to return to the provider.
I had to bring the car back about four times and the work was still not performed satisfactorily and I had to travel about 30 minutes one way on each trip.
I believe that this small company has taken on more than it can deal with. The quality of service that I read about on Angie's list and which induced me to try them is long gone. I would try several other companies first if you are interested in having the job done correctly the first time. This just is not the place to go for upholstery or headliner repair at this time.
