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!

The service technician was very professional, as he was working he explained what he was doing. When he was finished, he removed all the old parts and packaging. At the end, he explained how to operate the new system.

Their customer service is really good. We pay $39.00 per month to have our service monitored. We had one false alarm and they were to quick respond. We were out of town and they contacted us on our home, and cell phones.

misrepresented the product they sold us. This was caught immediately after installation. They will not return calls or do anything to rectify this situation. We have a useless system that does not serve our needs. They continue to charge us but will not address the blatant
Aurora Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
their representative told or the ineffectual quality of the their systemWe are an HVAC/Plumbing company that had had issues with break in on our parking lot and outside storage areas that we were hoping to curtail. In late November we had an
Aurora Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
representative out to our business to review our options for security system.
The representative,
Aurora Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, came out and reviewed our needs. We were offered a security system that would have top of the line quality cameras, including night vision. We told that this security system would include outdoor flood lights, a motion sensor that would sound an alarm if anyone stepped on the lot, and alerts that would come to us in the event that anyone broke onto the lot. We also purchsed an indoor pulse security system, which we purchased even though we have never had any issues with the interior of the building.
The day after we signed the contract
Aurora Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
notified us that the alarm actually wasn't something they could do for the outside units. We agreed with this concession as we had already signed the contract. They installed the system a week later. During the installation we discovered that no flood lights came with this system.
3 days after the installation, on 11/29, our lot was broken into in
Aurora Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
daylight. It was discovered that there was in fact no motion sensor on the cameras and that they had no way of alerting us to this break in. The thief was standing 5 feet away from the camera. From the video photoage you would not make out his skin color or any details. The police stated the cameras were useless and inadmissible as any sort of evidence.
We got in touch with our sales reps supervisor,
Aurora Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
, at
Aurora Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
. He wanted to make the situation right and stated that he would be handling this case personally. That was on December 1st. He said he would get back in touch with us the following day. He did not. After that we called him twice a day every day until December 10th when he finally answered.
He offered to install a new security system for about $1500. We declined as we had already dropped $1600 into this system and to start from scratch and just pay that amount again is not right. The current system in place is of no use to us.
We have spoken with several representatives since then but not one has called back after the initial phone call.

They came back several times and resolved the problem. I was very impressed that they did what they said they were going to do, when they said they would do it.
