"My gravel driveway runs for approximately 100 yards until you reach my home. I called Mr.
one morning, and we agreed to meet later that afternoon" for him to give me an estimate. My driveway had worn down to essentially mud and a long "crown' Of grass in the middle. The estimate was for $1,250 which included (1) bobcat work to remove the "crown" of grass; (2)purchase, haul and dump gravel; and (3) spread the gravel evenly on the driveway. Mr.
started the following week on a Tuesday afternoon and finished on Wednesday. The actual gravel cost was $100 less than the estimate, so the entire job ran $1,150. It turned out very well, and I recommend Mr.
highly.

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!

It went totally smoothly. We called in our request late the afternoon before for a single full load (12 cubic yards spread), offering that there was "no hurry" and "whatever meshed with their schedule". They said they'd be out first thing in the morning. By about 8:00am they'd already arrived and spread the first load, that looked so nice I called to thank them & ordered two more truckloads "at their convenience" to be spread farther along same country road. Right after lunch they'd delivered and spread the second load - and late in the afternoon came back and spread the third. Totally skilled driver and good product, quarried and crushed at their own facility along US 101 south of Seaside,

. The driver sets the slope of the dumptruck bed and takes off knowing just what he needs to do to make the rock "spread like butter" as he accurately phrased it. Nice smooth job. Enjoyable to work with them. They take "all cards" including Amex.

Dreadful experience. Their
Saint Joseph Stone Paving Specialists Provider Name Locked
is empty promises, terrible customer service and unprofessional work. We were excited to order our countertops from a local company, but it turned out to be a nightmare. When we first went to see them we were taken on a tour of the facility and really liked what we saw and heard. They made a big deal of their sealing process, which they said they did in house because they didn't trust contractors to do it properly. We placed our order and waited. And waited. After more than a month of delay beyond the promised date --which held up our kitchen construction at great inconvenience to us and our contractor -- the countertops finally arrived with the wrong

, a couple of significant chips on corners, and apparently no sealing at all.
Within a day of normal use (while we were trying to reach them) we had unrepairable stains on three of four counters. It took almost a week to reach someone with the authority to act (they don't actually return phone calls so we had to be very persistent) they agreed to take them back and fix them. They promised to turn them around in a week, which was another empty promise. We finally got them back after more than two additional weeks with the

fixed, but there was still a chip in a prominent corner and the sealing was inadequate. We asked for a discount as partial compensation for our inconvenience and the not-perfect product but they threatened to put us into collection if we didn't pay the full remaining balance.
I would never do business with them and caution anyone considering it not to be taken in by them.

Hadn't heard from him in 2 weeks so called the number listed here and it's his home number. Left a message with his mother.
He called that night and didn't leave a message. It's been another 12 days and still no estimate or call back. Called the same number and no answer/ no machine. Guess he doesn't need the work.
