Avoid cookout catastrophes — check out these three ways to repair your grill.
Good luck with your project!
You have ruled out the truly fancy grills with your price range, but there are a lot of brands for $500 down to $150 with 4-5 burners.
What you want to do, because of the number of choices, if make a list of the characteristics you want, then go to a site that list a lot of them or lests you compare characterisitics, and maybe go to a few stores and look at them.
Then, after you have short-listed it down to maybe 5 or less, look for reviews. Angie's List does not review consumer products, but there are sites that do that, and of course Consumer Reports will have reviews (buy a subscription or go to your library).
Then, compare reviews and prices to decide. Remember to factor in shipping costs, if ordered.
Bear in mind the real economy ones may be made of "stainless", but you can bet most of the cheapest ones from Asia will start rusting fairly soon - if you want true quality "stainless" you are going to be in the mid to higher part of your price range.
If you decide on natural gas and do not currently have a grill using that, count in some plumber cost for a connection - from maybe $150-200 if close by the gas service in your house, can run to $500+ if you are goiing to be running pipe along the outside (or inside) of the house or basement to get to where you want the valve. Be sure to keep kids in mind - small kids love to open valves, so be sure to put it in a locked vented box if that is a concern. Ditto to plastic pipe (if allowed in your area) if you have chewing critters.
For a propane grill, bear in mind the cost of buying (or repeatedly renting) a couple of gas canisters and probably an extension hose.
When figuring where the grill will sit, ASSUME it will catch on fire some time - so for safety put it at least 10 feet from the house, and if the tank ever tips over and catches fire, 25 feet is the "safe" distance. Remember also, frequently using it within less than 20-25 feet will grease and smoke up the side of the house, making it slimy looking, and also requiring a lot more prep work before repainting.
Grill Repair reviews in Vista
I see his reviews online and they are absolutely 180 degrees from what happened to me.
I had him come out after telling him several times that I would be installing a new firebox.
He completely dismantled the grill to pieces and then I was told that he could not do the job so he would ...MoreRead more of this review be back that Saturday, in 2 days, to reinstall it.
First thing, the hot water and gas were turned off so we had to take cold showers.
Second thing, two weeks later after fighting and fighting to get him to come out but continually being told he got too busy or would just not show up, he came out.
I had cleaned the grill to the best of my ability myself because I was sick of looking at a dirty grill.
The grill he put together now is missing parts, does not close proplerly and I honestly do not think he ever cleaned it- at least not the way he said he would or any better than I did.
We paid him $300 and will have to get someone else to come out, clean and fix the grill.
I would not use this company again.
After checking Angie's List and several Web sites, I called & Hearth to see if someone ...MoreRead more of this review could take a look at my grill and tell me whether it could be repaired or needed to be replaced.
They said someone would be at my house within the hour! (They had had a cancellation.) showed up a few minutes later in a beautifully painted truck, and within minutes had pulled out four burners and showed me how warped, clogged, and wasted they were--no wonder things weren't cooking evenly.
replaced the burners with new ones he had in his truck, re-set the stops that held the grate in place, lubed the knobs, and he was done. His company no longer does grill-cleaning, so after he left I degreased the grates and vacuumed up the debris with my shop-vac, and now I'm ready to grill like a pro.
This service call saved me the cost of buying a replacement grill, which would have cost at least $1,500, so it was money well spent. Mahalo nui (which means "thank you very much" in Hawaiian, in keeping with the Aloha spirit of the company).
