"The provider came within the time window. Two guys picked everything up really quickly -- they were in and out in less than 15 minutes. The one negative was when" my husband went out to his car there were tack strips (including the tacks/nails) on the driveway. Thankfully he saw them before driving over them.


showed up promptly and did an outstanding job. No surprises once price was quoted and work was completed quickly." They even cleaned up my garage before leaving. Will definitely use again and highly recommend them

Before you toss it, check the label. Some hazardous items — even batteries and ink cartridges — should be disposed safely, which doesn't mean at the curb! Why?

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!

is very hard to work with. I wouldn't count on him to get your job done in a timely matter. Working with
La Mesa Haulers Provider Name Locked
is very stressful. 90% Of the time his work schedule on my project started at 12-12:30pm and would leave at 3-3:30pm. It took him almost 2weeks to finish what would take a slow worker 9am-5pm maybe 4-5days.

When Calling
La Mesa Haulers Provider Name Locked
to get an estimate and giving
La Mesa Haulers Provider Name Locked
3rd of the payment ($500), he did not keep his word with how he was going to do it and what he was going to use in material. He gave us an estimate with labor and material. He also gave me estimates on other work I needed done, but with the outcome of this job I cancelled his services of further work. I Paid
La Mesa Haulers Provider Name Locked
on the strength of trusting him to finish the wood framing which then I had to basically beg him to finish. I also noticed that
La Mesa Haulers Provider Name Locked
does hauling, I offered some aluminum panels for free that he could scrap for money, I came to the job site on a day which he was suppose to work on finishing my project to see him loading the panels and striping the aluminum from the panels and leaving the garbage behind rather then finishing my work.

seems like an opportunist from what I have experienced.
- diana B.

They arrived on time, even a little early after calling. They looked over the job and quoted on the spot. The quote was for the volume they estimated to be involved. It seemed reasonable to me. This involved heavy objects and these were two strong men. They carefully consulted on what to take and what I wanted left. It took less time than I would have expected for the large amount. They were very careful carrying out these large items and did no damage to the house or furnishing. Before leaving they spent a few minutes helping me re-arrange the materials I had decided to keep.
They will revert to me with a quote on a very difficult extra job---removing a rotting boat from behind the house. It will require a large truck with a winch to drag it out, but they were confident they could do it.
- Thomas R.

We used
La Mesa Haulers Provider Name Locked
on two previous occasions for exterior demo work but this would be the first time we used them for interior demolition. We had to reschedule our first meeting with
La Mesa Haulers Provider Name Locked
, the owner, because he was involved in a car accident that day but when he arrived the following week he evaluated our project and gave us a fair price. The crew arrived on time and started by laying down drop cloths and taping up plastic sheets to minimize the amount of dust that would be flowing around. The spare room was done first and took about 4-5 hours to complete. They then got started on the additional walls and masonry removal. All of the waste was carted away in their dump truck. Finally the crew vacuumed and mopped the floors to remove the fallen dust. We still have to clean everything that stuck to the walls, furniture, and appliances but there was no way the job would have been dust-free. They started the job at 8am and were done between 3 and 3:30pm, just before it started snowing. There was one area above a doorway they forgot to tear out but it is a small enough job to handle ourselves and we didn't want to hold them up with the snow storm approaching that day. We really like their service and would not hesitate to use them again.
- Gene Y.

They removed everything safely and cleanly from the attic and garage and were professional and courteous at the same time.

did a great job!
- Heather M.

They were very professional and reasonably priced. They removed heavy doors and a workbench. They even went up into my rafters to get something down to haul away. All the guys were courteous and professional.
- Dawn R.

One of the reasons why I had picked them was that they had the largest truck available. However, I had made a miscalculation in the size and needed them to come back for another trip. There was an additional charge, but they were able to come back the next day. They were very professional and I would hire them again. Overall, my experience went great.

They were good to work with. There were three people here doing the work. They did everything I had asked but did go over board. This is the 3rd time I had used them.

They were very flexible with scheduling. They helped with additional clearing and chopping. They were helpful beyond what I had anticipated. There were some additional charges for the dumping. Overall, my experience was fantastic.
