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!

It went great. He came in and told us about the alarm system and was able to install it the same day. He tested the equipment and showed us how to use the system and gave us his card if we had any questions. We were able to get a great system that fits our needs for only $200.00. Monthly monitoring is $39.99.

I bought the deal through Angies List. The items arrived in two shipments because I wanted to add several more items. The alarms were coded to the base unit and it was easy to set up. I am having a difficult time setting up to my car garage door. There isn't enough clearance for the alarm due to the size of the unit. I have one unit on my personnel garage door entry that is working fine so far in the cold Illinois winter.
I had a flood alarm last week and the monitoring service called within 10 seconds of the house alarm alerting me. I was really impressed.

I contacted Vector looking to get info regarding their services.. A salesman named Vinh Din got back to me and we scheduled a meeting. He was punctual and friendly and knowledgeable. Once completed I had been corresponding with him to set up a time which was based around my schedule and they were able to accomodate whatever date I needed. When the tech arrived he was on time, friendly, he introduced himself and expalined what he was going to do and went into detail. His name is

McCoughlin I believe.. the whole process took a little over an hour the work was clean, the tech cleaned up after himself. He didnt rush he took his time and made sure I understood everything answering all my questions. I was a little apprehensive when I started researching the alarm systems and which company is best for my family. It is very user friendly they are very friendly and warm and I didnt feel pressured or pushed. It was like dealing with friends or family. the salesman remained in touch with me and promptly responded to a few questions I had after the install so that made me feel good as well. I would absolutely refer everyone I know to use Vector...

He was right one time, maybe a little early. He was very professional. He told me I might have a problem with APX because they are known to hold people to their contract. He gave me an estimate to switch to his service. If I can get out of my contract I will switch to him. They are in town and he said they would always respond in person at no charge to me.

Had service with them since 2008. In November of 2012 they put in a panel with back up battery. Three weeks ago the power company had to turn off the power and the alarm system didn't work. Some one was supposed to come out, I called to find out when they were coming and was told they weren't coming. No one ever called to inform me of that. Two years I wanted to cancel but now they say I'm in a 42 month contract that I never would have signed. It must have been presented to me as a paper showing the installation and monthly amount, not a contract.

Although it was somewhat difficult to reach this company (no website and closed on Mondays), we wanted to use a local small business for our carpeting. (Past experience in our former town told us that local service for carpeting was a better deal in the long run.) I scheduled J&J to come and take some measurements of the stairs, and then I went to the office/store and borrowed some samples. I called and ordered the carpeting and paid a percentage up front. The overall price seemed high, but I attributed it to the one carpeting needing to be bound on the edges to make the runner. The carpet came in pretty quickly, and the installation was scheduled. The installers were pleasant and on time. After the installers were gone, I looked at the stairs and was shocked. The

carpeting that went down to the basement did not meet the baseboards in some places--it was as if it had been cut too narrow. I could actually see unfinished stairs along the sides. In addition, the pattern on the basement stairs was crooked, not only to the stairs, but to the other steps. The bound carpet runner, which goes from the main floor to the second floor, had unfinished edges at the tops of the stringers. They had just cut and tacked the carpeting, and the cuts were even ragged. In addition, both stairs felt funny when we walked up or down, and what we noticed is that the carpet pads does not go to the edges of the steps, so when we put our feet down, it's uneven to the

. Not fully padding a stair tread makes no sense. Fortunately I had held back $300 of our payment due. J&J came out and fixed the unfinished edges on the main staircase and stretched the carpet to the edges on the basement stairs. They did a good job on the main, bound carpet staircase, and they were very nice about it. However, the two things that bother me every time I go up and down the stairs are the crooked carpeting to the basement and the incomplete padding on both sets of steps. Because of these things I cannot recommend J&J Carpets. Their work is just not good enough for the price. I regret not calling my old "local" company to do the job, as they are always meticulous in their work.
