"My window demands can make things complicated for a designer. I pretty much want something, but don't want any fabric, etc, intruding on the view.... Over the years,
" has been able to figure out how to incorporate function & the minimalist-style beauty I like. I guess the most complicated was getting the remote-controlled blinds hard-wired so I didn't have to see any little box containing batteries. It was an outside wall and the electrician was not pleased, but
was able to convince both the builder & the electrician of how it could be done - completely to all safety codes & still look good. The blinds line up perfectly with one of the horizontal window rails (making it virtually unnoticeable when the blinds are raised & only covering the bottom half of the window when it's lowered). There is also a 'swoopy/gauzy' treatment on the outside of the window, which took me 4 months to agree to get (I was afraid it would be to fru-fru). It isn't.
was right, again.

"I’m writing this review because I think that
Custom Upholstery surely lives up to there letter head. I check Angie List for some one to recover our
" room chairs that we have had for 30 years. My wife keeps them looking like the day they were delivered except for the seating that just wore out. My contact via phone with
was very pleasant. We decided that we were going to let
repair our chairs and discussed price with
who directed me to remove the seats and to bring them to there place of business. I arrived and observed a building with two service trucks outside with the Name of
Upholstery. The first person I met as I entered the building was a worker by name of
who was again pleasant and welcomed my wife and me. We had a nice conversation about our chair seats and then
who was attending to another customer introduced himself and explained how they ere going to replace the foam and recover the seats.
stated that they would be finished in a week. To my surprise I received a call from
who ID himself as the owner and question me how the seats were positioned on the chairs, I tried to explain what I observed .
stated that he was going to send his delivery truck to pick up the chairs in question because he wanted to make sure that the job was done correctly and to make sure that we were happy with his work quality. I was no doubt impressed with his concerns.
did send his truck and picked up the chairs and returned them finished. My wife was very pleased with the quality of workmanship. We would highly recommend
’s Upholstery and would use them in the future.

"The first time i contacted
I got a call right away. He came over to look at the chair and gave us the cost. I mentioned Angies List and right away i got a discounted" price and no charge for pickup or drop off. It was a lot of work but they got it done within the estimated time. During the process i was encouraged to stop in any time and see the progress. The communication was excellant. WOW!!!! was all I could say when they delivered it yesterday!! It came out beautiful and I couldnt be more pleased. WOW WOW WOW!!! I would absolutely recommend this company ! Great job everyone.

Should I hire an upholstery professional for my furniture?

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 Avondale


Very well. Had plenty of fabric choices and offered free pick-up (deliver charges apply).
- Tamara A.

They were great. We went to the shop and picked out the fabric. They came and pick up the couch - which wasn't easy since the couch was long and the front door isn't in the best spot. They delivered the couch when it was finished and it is beautiful.
- Marie B.

The chairs and pillows turned out great! The chairs look and feel like brand new chairs even though they are over 20 years old. When I need more upholstery work done, I will definitely call

Service was fine. I am very pleased with the work. I took my car in, they took me home and called me when it was ready. I would say they do good. They are very accommodating and have great prices.
- Richard I.

Terrible. Paid upfront, separately for windows to be measured...sales person lost measurements...had to be remeasured. Called after three weeks to follow up and was told sales person was no longer with company and I needed to come in to store to select hardware again. Fabric had just arrived and production had not even started on drapes. Called again in another two weeks to follow up - sales person was at lunch and left message. Called back two hours later...still at lunch. No call back. Called again on Monday ...sales person did not work on Monday's...asked for someone else to follow up...that person called back later to tell me she did not have enough information about my order to provide me with a status. Next day same person called back and gave me the name and number of the person

who asked me " how did the installation get scheduled" ...I explained and then he told me that they could not be installed because the hardware had not come in yet! The order was originally placed on September 3...but as of October 27 it would be another week before hardware was ready. I cancelled the hardware order.

We provided the same fabric that is on our sofa. Our desire was to create a pair of hearth cushions that would match our sofa. The work on the cushions was outstanding. The pattern match and cushion thickness was a perfect match to our sofa. The work also took less time than we anticipated.

did a superb job on my couch. I was extremely satisfied with their professional service. I liked the fact that they had numerous fabric samples to choose from. They took my couch and then delivered the couch back to my home when finished. This was extremely helpful to me. All their work was done by hand and they reconstructed a better quality couch for me. I highly recommend their services.
