"Work was done in stages.
arrived with assistant to review job and measure. She left samples of appropriate materials. Quotation was emailed the next day &" accepted. Helm seats were done first and then cushions later. Next project was leaking soft top of pilothouse. We decided in addition to replace eisenglass side windows as well. They arrived to remove top as planned and we covered boat with tarps for protection. When new top was fabricated, they arrived and installed it. Work was professional with everyone very pleasant and willing to make everything beyond just right. We will definitely use

"I called
and trim on a Friday and was happy with price quoted. I dropped the vehicle off on Sunday and then stopped in at 8 am on Monday. I filled out the paperwork" and my contact info. They completed the headliner in 2 days without an appointment. When they called to tell me it was ready, I made payment over the phone and asked them to leave the keys and invoice in car. Overall things were great, I highly recommend them

"
recognized the problem with our door panels right away -- he mentioned that he sees this all the time. He repaired these for his quoted price of $75/panel." The results look great -- they look like factory new. No one who has been in our car since has any idea that they've been replaced. The repair was completed within 1 day -- the time frame promised. If you need upholstery work done, I'm very confident that
will do the best possible job for you.

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!

Some oil was spilled on the leather seat in my car and as I tried to fix the issue, the problem seemed to get worse. I contacted Ivar and he responded quickly and his price was very fair. He offered to schedule a call quickly and his whole approch was very professional and made me feel better about my problem. After quite a bit of effort on my part, I was able to resolve the issue on my own. I would definately contact Ivar again for any leather work.

I was given an appointment time and was told it would take about one hour. They started right on time and were done in less than an hour. I have had them do repair work on my vehicle seats before and was completely satisfied at that time so I returned when I had another repair job to be done.

They did an excellent job. It looks as good as new. They were helpful and recommended a marine upholstery protectant (not something they sell). They are very skillful at what they do. Their price is fair for the quality of work.

The company picked up the chair and brought me fabric samples. They did a perfect job reupholstering the chair. It is beautiful. They dropped it off at my house when it was done.

meets the definition of a true craftsman -- clearly he knows his business and without question takes great pride in his work. I have no idea about the charge but it seemed fair to me based on a little scanning of the internet. I also noted some very fine cars in his shop that were in the process of being restored and been left in his care for the upholstery work. I should mention that this company was recommended to me by the body shop (

The apparatus has never worked properly. Several phone conversations have promised resolution, but are always prefaced with some reason why it cannot be done, car trouble, boat trouble, money trouble. The owner actually laughed at me as I tried to explain the gravity of the situation. And each time you call you must call from another person's phone because they will never answer your call again. Here is the last email which outlines the last phone conversation:
Good Afternoon
This is a follow up to this afternoon's phone conversation.
You have spoken with my mother on several occasions and while you have agreed to resolve this - it has not yet been resolved.
This afternoon you agreed to call me when you got back into town. You are currently out of town as you encountered car trouble out of state. You had your son take down my information. If you have misplaced it - here is my cell phone 3**-***-****. You may call me any day/any time of day. I prefer that you also respond to this email. I expect that I will hear from you before close of business on Thursday to set an appointment.

is currently at MADS (Marine Automated Dock Systems). You and my mother spoke about you repairing or replacing the unit at MADS before she has it delivered to the property. Please advise if you are able to do this before Monday June 9th. If you cannot - I request that you come to my parents' property June 20, 2014 when I will be there to meet you. I will be there all day.
To summarize, please respond to this email and call me within two days to confirm that you will provide service at MADS before Monday or schedule a visit to my parents' property on June 20th.
I am sure you are familiar with MADS, however I will provide their information is below. I provided my parents' address to you on the phone. If you need it again - please call me.
I have copied several friends and family members on this email such that there is a record of the details of the situation thus far. I look forward to an expeditious resolution of this issue.
I will be filing with the Better Business Bureau next.
