"If you have to pick up a high def card, you have to go and wait in line. I had a guy came out and one of these guys sat on one of the chairs that I had and it was $2500, and they broke" it. I called them about it, and they came out, and he looked at it, and said that it was not good. He then wrote me a check of $1200. The guy sat on the food of the chair and it snapped, and I didn't notice until after he left. They really impressed me for doing that. Their service is wireless, so you don't have to worry about wires all over. I get the full super package. I had 4 hookups in the house. We are one of their big customers and they keep on sending me these free movie vouchers. They have come when I need them.

"I contacted

He explained very precisely how things worked from start to finish and was extremely helpful in getting our order processed when we decided to go with
. The system arrived 4 days later and after a couple of phone calls, our system was set-up and activated. The 2 customer service reps that I spoke with were very helpful in answering my questions regarding the placement of the sensors. He walked me through testing all of them to ensure they were working properly and then gave me my options in regards to activating the system (test vs fully active). The self-installation took about 30 minutes and most of that was fine tuning the sensor placements. Overall, my wife and I have been very impressed with this company so far. The prices are competitive and the rave reviews are well warranted. I would definitely recommend this company to someone else and will continue to use them in the future.

"We compared two estimates, both with high A/L ratings. We picked Guardhouse because of what we got for the cost. The installer arrived promptly at 9:30 a.m. and worked straight through" until 6 p.m. He finished by demonstrating the system and explaining it. The house was built in 1985 and the original security system was about 95% inoperable.
replaced much of the hardware and added new hardware for a more complete system.

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!

We ran a test on our alarm system, and entirely our fault, the test did not go the alarm company. Immediately we called Bill who just happened to be on a call close by. He was at our house within 30 minutes. When we told him what we had done, he instructed us on what we should have done. Low and behold the entire test went through perfectly. Being the type of wonderful individual Bill is he did not charge us for the call. We will always do business with

and Bill. It's so nice to do business with him.

I called several companies and talked with them to get estimates and details about how their products work. I was the most impressed with
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
because of what was available, as well as the customer service that was presented to me. I spoke with
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
and he walked me through the process and assisted me in checking pricing and ensuring that I was getting a good deal. He followed up with me through email and we got everything arranged very quickly and we scheduled for the next day.
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
came out to my house, did a general walk through and advised on what he felt would be necessary for me to have and to use. Having never used a security system in my own home, I was very appreciative of it. It took him an hour and a half to get everything set up and installed. He explained how to set up other users on the account and all the little "tricks" that I never would have thought about.
The only problem that I had was not his fault at all. The main panel has to be hooked up through an outlet. At around 11 I received a notice to my phone that the power was low. I played around with the system and realized that there was no way I could figure it out on my own. I called the monitoring company and they tried to troubleshoot with me, but to no avail. After a few minutes of speaking with them, they advised that I call
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
and have them come check it. I was at my wits end and decided to try and switch outlets. When I bent down, I realized that there are two connectors that lead into the outlet and one of them had gotten loose. It was such a
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
fix and now my system is back up and running smoothly.
I was very impressed with both
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
and the monitoring company. As of now, I am pleased to be in business with them.

When my husband and I moved into a two year rental agreement on a home, after a transfer to Albuquerque, NM, we contacted
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
to provide our security system.
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
from Protect Your Home, came to our home and spent over an hour talking with us about their equipment and what his recommendations were. We told him that we had signed a two year lease and were absolutely not going to sign a time length contract for service because we were not sure if we were going to purchase a home or move to another part of town at the end of our house lease.. He said that if we outright purchased the equipment, instead of renting it that we would not be required to sign a contract for length of time service. We asked him lots of questions about transferring the monitoring, should we purchase a home in the future, what the fees were to move the equipment and the set up charges were. He assured us it was not going to be a problem and that the fees were roughly $200 for set up and activation. He then proceeded to evaluate the house layout and sold us $1619.64 worth of equipment, including sensors for two wooden doors, a shake proof sensor for a glass door and bedroom window, 2 motion sensors and 3 smoke sensors, a medical alert fob as I am legally disabled and two key fobs, along with the digital key pad.
Approximately 18 months later when we purchased a new home, we contacted
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
to make arrangements for moving the alarm system. We were informed that the system could not be moved and that once it was altered that it was not able to be trusted and they refused to monitor it. They told us we had accrued roughly $250 in relocation credit and that our out of pocket cost for the new equipment that needed to be purchased at the new house was going to cost us $1300, after the relocation credit was applied. We were shocked and told them that was ridiculous and that our installer/salesman,
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
had specifically told us told the agent that we absolutely would not be purchasing new equipment from them, what we now owned was state of the art and practically brand new and they could cease our service when we had a move date. They then informed us that we had a 3 year service contract with them and it would cost $574.73 to pay that contract out for the full 3 years. We told them that
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, the representative that they sent to our house, had told us otherwise and explained in detail what we were told by him and that we were not going to pay them the $574.73 and would contact them once we had a move date, so that they could cease the monitoring of the rental house. They sent us one bill in the mail for the $534.73 and then turned us over to a collection agency, almost immediately. NO negotiating, no concern at all that their service provider blatantly lied to us, lied about practically everything he told us. Sat in our living room, was cordial, interested in us and taking care of us and LIED, over and over again.
There is a reputable local company in town that allows the adoption of security systems and monitors everyone else's equipment for nearly 1/2 of what
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
was charging us monthly. They came to the rental house and to our new home and gave us their recommendations for complete coverage at our new house.Turns out too that the 3 smoke sensors that
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
informed us were necessary in the rental house were well beyond over
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
for the square footage and the
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
out of the house. Then when the service man came to hook up the
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
system at our new house, it turned out that
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
had installed some sort of proprietary coding into the
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
system when he set it up. It was not able to be monitored by the local company. Fortunately the existing
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
system that the sellers had left in the home we purchased, which was a
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
quality system, did not have proprietary coding set up in it and we were able to have the local company monitor that system.
So BEWARE of liars working for
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, they showed ZERO concern at all for the fact that their contracted provider
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
to customers, over charges you by selling you equipment that is completely unnecessary and shows NO effort to allow you to have them come in and move a system they installed that it still a viable top of the line digital system. LIARS and THIEVES are the only two words I have for
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
. Find a local company with a reputation and stay away from
Quartz Hill Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
!!!
