"I was concerned initially about the installation process because we had ADT before, which sends a technician out for the install. The
system" was so easy to install, and customer service is wonderful. So far, the system seems to work well.

"After talking with several different companies about fixing our alarm system and installing new smoke detectors, my wife and I made the decision to go with
" . I really can't say why we eventually chose them over their competitors but we are really happy that we did.
came out and was right on time. He walked us through what I had discussed with
(owner) and asked if we had any questions. He was polite and always answered any questions we had. He took the time to make sure we understood how to work the security panel even if it meant going over it several times.
wasn't pushy about additional work that could have been done, but when I did ask him thoughts, his ideas came out as "suggestions" vs. "you really should get this done"
. Overall, it was a fantastic experience and I can honestly say that my family and I are a lot more safe because of the work that
and
. did. Thank you!!!

Should I install security cameras?

Highly rated Angie's List service providers list the pros and cons of home security camera surveillance systems.

Look for a home security company that makes your family's safety a top priority, says Perez. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Gregory P. of New York)

On this episode of Chat with the Experts, Armando Perez of Hoosier Security explains the importance of home security systems and what options are available.

Alarm companies can’t guarantee a quick police response if someone breaks into your home. Read why experts say a security alarm system still comes in handy.

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!

Everyone I have had any contact with has been courteous, professional, competent and prompt.
I highly recommend this company.
There was an initial fee for installation of equipment and wiring, but I no longer remember that cost.
There is a total monthly fee of approx. $33, paid quarterly.

I returned the system and didnt use the deal. They were okay and polite. The individual I had spoke with seemed to be a little confused on how their Angie's List deal worked.

The homeowner installs the sensors and control panel themselves. The install is easy and the instructions are clear. The
Deale Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
staff is super attentive and quick to address any issues you may have. Our control panel had an electronic defect and a replacement was sent via overnight post. A
Deale Home Security Companies Provider Name Locked
representative walked us through the setup once the package was installed and activating the system was easy and completed in 15 - 30 minutes.
The system itself works as advertised. It offers complete security and safety coverage for all your needs. We even purchased a compatible thermostat ($80 on Amazon.com) and now we are able to monitor/control our thermostat remotely. We interact with the system via smartphone app, but it you can arm/disarm from the panel or with the supplied keychain control.
Overall: A great value for the money. You're essentially getting $800-$900 of equipment for $199, plus you get a $100 gift card and other

. You are locked into a contract, but the system is portable if you move during the 3 years. Be sure to take advantage of their referral program. Documented referrals get you and the referee a free month of service (for each one).

The process was amazingly painless. I ordered and was contacted within 48 hours. I spoke with a great representative on the phone that gave me all the options for monitoring and didn't try to sell me anything. He explained thoroughly the plans, prices, and everything I'd receive with the deal. Once I received the hardware, setup was a breeze. They have very clear instructions that are easy to follow.

's website also has a lot of great video content to help with setup. Once the sensors were in place, calling and activating was a snap. The representative gave me multiple options for how to handle the adjustment period as we got used to a security system. After 3 months with them, I received my Amazon gift card via email. Easy peasy!

They were very punctual with the follow up on the delivery and install process. I was set up and being monitored in just 2 hours. This is the second system I have set up and both times it has gone great.

Although the separate Angie's Deals made it seem like we needed to choose the correct one for products wanted, we were actually able to buy products we wanted up the the dollar value of Angie's Deal. Easy to install and easy to work with although had to call twice in order to receive the promised Amazon Gift card that came with deal.

Nobody who can actually read would sign their contract. Not only did they not agree even to use "best efforts" to perform their services, but they expressly reserved the right to listen in to private conversations within range of their equipmen. Furthermore, they did not commit to keep such conversations private.

As soon as I read tHe contract (parts of which were illegible) I didn't even unpack the equipment and sent it back.

They were courteous throughout, however.

I hate my current provider, and was truly sorry that the contract was so uneven that I couldn't sign it

I don't remember the exact date of service - I am aware from my PC now.
