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.

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.


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.




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!

Hauling reviews in Starke


He came to give me an estimate, we made a time to meet at 1:00. He was here about 30 min early. And after agreeing on the payment amount, he went right to work! It is now 2:30 and he has finished the job with a smile on his face and a very pleasant attitude. This is a holiday week end right? No extra charge for Sunday work or holiday work! I would call him again and would tell my friends about him also! He did a great job!
- Nona R.

Showed up on time, was gone in 2 hours. I bought a deal on 6 yds and he was very reasonable on what he charged to fill the rest of his truck trailer. They worked fast, was quick to point out the normal garbage the city would take and even assisted in dragging some of that out to the
Starke Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
for bulk pickup and save us from filling his trailer space. Would recommend highly to friends and family. Would hire him again, I just hope I don't have to clean out to sell a relatives house that has accumulated junk for 40 years in the near future.
- Kathleen & Stuart P.

Super. Polite, hard workers and very careful not to damage anything while. Came the week we called and took care of everything we had requested. They could not make it the day first scheduled, but that appeared to be because they were working so much. Well worth waiting for them. Seemed inexpensive for the effort needed. Not something that happens often on service calls. :)
- John R.

Communication was excellent. Provider was earlier than window - which worked out well. The reason I have to give them a D for Overall: They were told what to remove - only items from the backyard. But somehow they also grabbed a bag of my husbands' clothing that was in the foyer to go to the dry cleaner. It contained over $2500 worth of clothing! A suit and over a dozen expensive dress shirts. We called and asked them to 'look' for it or see if it was reported. It was not in the same kind of black garbage bags we had put the packing materials in, and it was tucked behind a tree stand. Hard to understand how they could have accidentally picked it up.
It was unfortunate because the experience otherwise would have been a plus. There were 2 workers, and they were going back and forth many times. They were concerned about water dripping on the wood floors (rain had soaked the cardboard boxes). I thought they were very polite and professional.
Another dissatisfaction: They showed me the truck 'loaded' so I could see how much space was taken up - as that is how they charge. I had paid $169 for an Angie's List deal - but they judged the overage to be another $206. I thought they were overstating space used, as the boxes were lying flat and could have other items piled on top, but I was so relieved to have the backyard cleared, I just agreed to pay the extra. We did not discover the clothing bag was missing until the next day when we were going to take it to the cleaners. It was, hopefully, only an unfortunate mistake and not intentional. The owner told us it 'happens all the time'.
Heartbreaking - and expensive. And unacceptable.
- Donna L.

He met me at one of my rent houses in little rock, and on time. The first thing that he did when we met was introduce himself, and hand me his card. I showed him my outdated bathroom, and what I wanted done.he gave me a bid to tear out all the fixtures, cabinets, the tile on the walls and floors. His pricing was very fair. He fame back that Sunday morning and completed the job that day. I was shocked to see that he even swept up the mess. Some contractors that I have used in the past were so messy.
- elizabeth B.

It was an excellent experience, from start to finish. Very easy to schedule for the following day. Two guys arrived in a

truck in the early part of the 2-hour window we were scheduled for. They dismantled an old plastic shed which required
Starke Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
through lots of overgrowth that had filled in the surrounding area since it was installed over a decade ago. They quickly loaded the shed parts and its contents onto the truck. Then they carried two heavy old 32 inch tvs down a long flight of stairs and loaded them. The entire job was done in less than an hour, very professionally and courteously. It was an $86 Big Deal, with a reasonable additional $20 charge because of the volume.
- Randi S.

Amazingly poor and seemingly dishonest experience. Called the call center first thing on Saturday. Call center quotes $535 as top price for full load and that they could take it that day. Then schedules us between 2-4PM. Guys finally show up closer to 5 (although they did call around 4 to say they'd be late). When they arrive, they tell us it will be over $700!
When pressed that the call center told us otherwise, they agree to the $535, but tell us they can't do it until Tuesday.
So they were late, they were more than agreed upon, and couldn't do it on the day we had been promised. Amazingly bad.
- William W.

Very friendly and helpful. Carried some items from the basement out to the garage that they were not even moving. Am positively going to use them again as I am in the process of moving. Will continue after I'm moved to have them come out and remove any remaining items left on site.
