"It went well. They honored the Angie's List discount on materials. Work was done on time. They also contributed to choice of new colors and design. Price was lower than one other quote.

"I can not say enough good things about
! Mr.
is the absolute BEST. He is courteous, professional and does an amazing job recovering" furniture AND at an incredible price and in a short amount of time. I gave him a patio chair and some material and he made the cutest cushions for my wrought iron chairs! I have recommended him to many people and they are all as impressed with him as I am! YOU CAN'T GO WRONG!!!

"I made an appointment for
to come over to my house for a free estimate. He was prompt for the appointment. He had a wide selection of leather swatches to show" me. He discussed the price of each and what he would recommend on the type of leather.I asked for extra cushion to be added and he said that was not a problem. After we decided on the material I wanted, he said he would get it in a larger piece so I could really see how it would look on the chair (instead of just viewing the smaller swatch). He called me the next day and said the larger piece of material was in and wanted to come to the house so I could see it. I live close to his office so I went to him. It was great to see the leather is a larger piece (about the size of a seat cushion) it did make a difference. I decide I like the material. He sent to very nice gentlemen to the house to pick up my chair. It was only after, I was completely satisfied with my choice that he asked for a low deposit of $200. He said it would take about 1 week. Sure enought 1 week later the chair was ready and delivered. It looked fantastic. great workmanship and he has an eye for detail. The cost was exactly as he stated.
was very nice to talk to and work with, here you deal with the owner. He wanted to make sure I was very satisfied and told me if not he would fix it. This is a great local company to do business with, I highly recommend them. I would not hesitate to use them again in the future. It was a plus for me to help support a locally family owned small business.

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!

Upholstering reviews in Tucson

The owner responded to my call promptly (I think it was the next day) and she brought many samples and was very helpful regarding how the fabric would wear, etc. This was during the holiday season so it was a couple of weeks before 3 of the chairs were picked up but it was only about a week before the work was completed and the chairs and cushion were returned. A couple of months later we got the fourth chair and since I already knew the fabric I wanted she came out and picked it up and it was back within 10 days. They did a beautiful job and were very professional.

These chairs were very old and needed some loving care. This company went out of their way to help us. We were not hurried as we looked at fabric. I was able to visit several times and see the chairs at various stages. They were knowledgeable about the construction of the time period and knew how to duplicate the original work.

This man did a great job with the two overstuffed chairs. The draperies in our living room are beautiful and very functional. They did draw drapes plus the sheers underneath. I would recommend their work to anyone.

My first impression of them was not good, because they showed up late, but they redeemed themselves by doing a wonderful job. They changed the springs in my chairs and added more stuffing. When they were finished my chairs looked and felt like new.

We had a fire and our couch and love seat had a lot of damage to them. They did a wonderful job fixing it up. They picked out the perfect matching fabric, and quite literally saved our antique furniture. It looks like new.

When they finished the job, and brought it to my house we did not agree on the color, it was all wrong. She agreed with me, took it back and reupholstered the entire thing. I was very pleased with the end result. They care about customers!
