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 Moline


Excellent service and very polite and courteous gentlemen. We had re-clad out fence and had all of the old sections that we tore off to replace pile in a stack in out backyard. They quickly and efficiently took away the mess for a very reasonable price. They were polite and gave us an estimate upon arrival,. They complete the work quickly and were careful not to damage anything as they carried the sections away.

came by, picked everything up and sent me before and after photos. Will use again, next time I have some serious debris hauling. Job Well Done.

was a pleasure to work with. He was always courteous and professional. He came, looked at the job, gave me a couple of great ideas and then emailed me a written estimate that covered everything we had discussed.
They completed the job in two days and did everything they said they would, no additional costs or upcharges for anything.
It was a refreshing change from some providers who came and gave me estimates then wanted to add on for every little thing even after they had given me an estimate.
The patio met my expectations, which is no small matter. They matched the finish that was on an adjoining patio. They left the site as clean as when they arrived. All the workers were very courteous, friendly, and respectful.
I would definitely recommend them.
- Richard S.

The Provider was prompt in providing instructions on how I could self schedule the appointment via their website. They arrived on time, inventoried items which needed to be hauled away. The special I purchased was 1/4 of the truck, I had about a 1/3 of the truck, this was expected as I had a lot of stuff to haul off. The provider identified the additional cost before starting to which I agreed it was a fair price. They were quick to load and be on their way. The Provider followed up via phone and email afterward to ensure I was completely satisfied with the services provided. Great Customer Service from beginning to end.
- Thomas B.

The guys called 30 minutes before they were supposed to arrive and asked if they could come early which was wonderful I want the stuff gone!! So they arrived at 9.45am.
Over the long weekend I had added some items to the list, 5 bags of garden debris and a large
Moline Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
of branches as well as I decided to get rid of my 5, 16 year old trash cans with some trash still in them. When I showed the additional items they told me it would be $300 which was fine, there was a lot of stuff as well as a California King mattress.
They had everything in the truck in about 45 minutes and they had swept up after themselves. They were going to donate some new tiles that we didn't need to Habitat for Humanity which made me happy, I hate waste. This made a messy garage usable again! A job well done and I will be using them again I'm sure.

I called
Moline Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
from a Flyer I received in my paper box. Ed contacted me and I asked him if he would take 2 box TVs. One was a Zeneith 19" and the other was a 27" Panasonic, both of which we're working. One was in my bonus room and the other in Attic Storage room. He said he and his son would come out on a Wed. 8-26 at 8:30 Am . He quoted me that it would be $10 for ea. TV. I agreed to the price. On Wed. AM I got a text from him asking me if it was ok to postpone the pickup day and time till the next Day (Thursday 8-27) at 8:30 AM. I said Ok. On Thursday AM, I waited way passed 8:30 AM and still no show. I texted Ed in which Ed replied he would be at my home in 10 minutes. After waiting a half hour or more, I texted Ed again and asked what the holdup was. No reply. Never responded and never came.

It went well, they worked very hard in attempting to empty my garage. They worked in a storm unfortunately they said the truck was full and could not take any more. Maybe next time.
