"rGot back to us right away when we requested a quote on fixing a long, uphill unpaved driveway. They went out to look at the driveway right away, then got back" to us with a quote in a timely manner. We wanted the work done in a fairly short time frame and they finished it on time. They kept to the quote they gave us, and were very professional and courteous when we met them. Nice family owned business - enjoyed working with them

came early and he did exactly what was contracted. I had to leave so I left him and his crew in the backyard to finish the job. He did a great job.

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!

The guys were very professional, polite and quick.
It was a bigger job than they had anticipated, but they took it all in stride.
Great job.

It went exceptionally well. The two men who came to do the work were not only extremely helpful, but warm, friendly and knowledgeable about how to "stuff" a truckload of trash to my best advantage. I will be calling them back to do more work in about a month or so.

are exceptional! They called the day before to confirm our appointment window; the day of service they called when they were about 45 minutes away. The crew was professional and on time. I would hire them again and refer out to my colleagues and friends.
Two thumbs up!

They were fantastic! Very professional and efficient. Upfront pricing and no pressure. I gave them a B for punctuality, only because they finished up slightly later than the window I scheduled them in. However, they had called before the window to say they would be arriving towards the end of the time frame and confirmed with me if that would be ok. Really, punctuality should more like a B+ or A- rather than a B. AND they should get an A+ for responsiveness and communication!!
I am already contemplating our spring cleaning and plan on calling them again!! Well worth it. Highly recommend!!

Two workers came and discussed what needed to be removed. They were able to pull the truck up to my balcony and drop the junk from the third floor to the truck. It was very efficient and fast! The guys were very pleasant and professional and took care of business quickly. I'm very pleased with the outcome and I will plan on using them again when I accumulate more junk!

The guys showed up and they were fast, professional, strong and did an absolutely FANTASTIC job. We were scheduled with another mover on Tuesday morning to move our home and my mother's the same day and the company never showed. My husband found

and gave them a call. They showed up at 4pm and were done by 6:30. We liked them SO much that we asked them if they were available the following day to move my mom into our new home also. They arranged their schedule and showed at my mom's house at 5:00 and worked really hard. Lots of heavy furniture. They were challenged with some of the furniture fitting through doorway etc but made it work. They finished at 9pm and were exhausted. Always chearful and pleasant throughout the entire process. These guys were well worth the money. I cannot say enough about how professional, fast, and fantastic these guys were.
I would definitely recommend these movers anytime to anyone!

Very impressed with the courtesy of the three man crew as they cleared unwanted items from my home of over 40 years. I am pleased that my things will not be going to a landfill. Had purchased a Big Deal on Angie's List. My load slightly exceeded the purchased amount, but I felt that the extra charge was explained clearly and a good value.

They were great and very helpful. I used them twice. I called them with an emergency the second time and they came out within two hours to adhere to my schedule. They based the price on the amount they put in the truck. I had a hall table that was very old and cast iron, it must have weighed 100 pounds, and it only took one of them picked it up! I could not have been more pleased. They were not only cooperative, but they helped make suggestions for me. I even wanted to tip them, but they wouldn't allow it. I was impressed with their honesty and professionalism.
