"The system works fine, and I haven't had any problems with it. My main issues are dealing with Simplysafe. When I called as a prospective customer a couple times, my calls were" immediately answered. Every time I've called since for support, there is a long wait to get to someone. Also, they don't have any off-hours alarm service support. The hardware works, but the company obviously is focused more on getting new customers than providing support to those they have.

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!

My problems with

in
Surprise Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
Ct (corporate headquarters) . I had to sign a contract for 6 years originally, and when I went to cancel it by phone, at the end of the contract but within the 60 days, I was told that they needed it in writing. Since it was at the end of the 60 days, they would not honor my request, (even in writing I was told) and I was forced to pay for another year which I did not want. Now that I'm out from under their clutches, they will not reset my access code, to default so that I can have another security company work on my system. Their customer service is horrible, and it galls me that a system I paid for and is in my house, I can't use, unless I replace the main mother board, which is 100's of dollars, I'm being told. This is just not right, and companies like this should be OUT OF BUSINESS. They are suppose to be here to protect you, but instead they do this. The company I use now which I got from Angies list, states to me that they reset the access code,all of the time for customer who want to leave. Be very wary of this company, when you Google them there will be a link

I called about an estimate and they returned my call immediately and set up an estimate appointment. They gave me a menu of options and tailored an estimate based on my options. There was no hard sell and they showed me a range of items to fit our budget. The installation crew were very professional, punctual, and knowledgeable. The crew cleaned up after themselves each day and worked diligently. They gave a complete tutorial on how to work the new system and made sure I knew how to work the system thoroughly before they lefty house. They completed the job exactly when they said they would and for the exact price agreed upon. I am very happy with their product, services and I'd absolutely recommend them to friends.

I bought a starter kit for
Surprise Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
using a great discount promo from Angie's list. Bought directly through Angie's list and had it delivered. This is a self install alarm system. I needed another $150 in additional sensors to have a complete system. The deal direct from Angie's List was 20% lower than any other discount I could find online for
Surprise Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
. The system is easy to install and the monitoring service has no annual contact obligations. The monthly fee for monitoring is very reasonable considering all the features that it has. My favorite feature of their monitoring package I bought so that I can use my iPhone to monitor and set my alarm. It's a very powerful and flexible system that I highly recommend. It's allows for complete customization, so I can turn on or off various zones depending on my needs very easily. I can name different sensors so I know exactly where the problem may be, I also bought freeze and water sensors so my home is protected and safe even when I'm not there 24/7.
