"I had six dining room chairs to be reupholstered and
did an outstanding and quick job! I couldn't be more pleased! She had me purchase" the fabric (which I got on sale at
Fabrics) and took the chairs and the fabric to her and she did an amazing job! I love them! I would use her services again in a minute. She is professional and quick!

"
's work is the way quality work used to be done and at a fair price. Sure many decorators use her and then
up" the item like crazy. Save some time. She does all kinds of things from reupholstering sofas to pillow covers. I had pillow covers, a cornice recovered and the workmanship was incredible. don't let the storefront fool you - quality like this you don't find these days.

If possible, always visit the upholstery shop to ensure that it's a clean environment and the work is being completed on site, says Harvey. (Photo courtesy of Bahama Upholstering)

Should I hire an upholstery professional for my furniture?

Many people have no idea of the costs or benefits in reupholstering a piece of furniture. Learn how upholstering can benefit your current furniture.

An upholsterer can revitalize an older piece of furniture with new fabric and even restructuring. While the work can be costly, it can be worth it to preserve a well-made item. (Photo courtesy of Angie’s List member Catherine R.)

Upholstery

Upholstering is the process of covering a high-quality piece of furniture, antique or keepsake with materials such as fabric and padding. Freshen the look of a room by giving furniture a new look.

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!

to freshen up my 40 year old sofa and loveseat. I contracted with

in
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
2014 with a promise that my furniture would be finished by Thanksgiving. Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
told me that he would pick up my furniture first week of September. First week came and went, no phone call. I called Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
late September. He said he would pick up furniture end of October, with goal of finishing before Thanksgiving, 4 weeks away. No phone call. Two weeks before Thanksgiving, I called
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
. He said he would call me back. After Thanksgiving, I got that phone call. He picked up the sofa and love seat the Friday after Thanksgiving with a promise that I would have it back by Christmas. Christmas came and went. Fortunately, I had lots of folding chairs for my kids and grandkids to sit for Christmas gift exchange. Lots of jokes from grandkids about the nice furniture. I wasn't calling again.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
could call me this time. Finally, I called January 19. Sofa was delivered January 22. Love seat was delivered January 24. So you can see from my narrative, communications with the customer is really lacking and low on his priority list. Best to under promise and over deliver, than the other way around. The quality of the work is very good. I may use
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
for future work on 2 chairs that need refreshening. But I will check with other reupholster companies locally instead of just giving him my business. And in the future, I will know not to anticipate completing the work by any specific date. I will know not to expect good communications with frequent updates on progress from Mr.
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
. And I will expect the quality of the work to be very good.

I dropped two upholstered chairs off at TJs Upholstery after I was given a verbal quote. Their selection of fabric is quite extensive. Fortunately I did not have to look long before I found a fabric I liked. TJ called when the chairs were ready and insisted on delivering them. They look fabulous in our reading nook!

They took my 73 year old
South River Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
XVI sofa and chair, and rebuilt them from the inside out. Everyone in the shop is very helpful and experienced. They have a VAST array of swatches. Once you pick the one you want, they LITERALLY make your vision a complete and satisfying reality. I PERSONALLY feel considering what they had to work with, the price was more than FAIR. I have contracted them AGAIN and look forward to seeing the finished product.

, did a great job. She got back to me quickly. She knew right away what type of couch I had and came out to my house on my schedule and promptly and professionally completed the work. She explained some of the problems which were common to the style of my couch. A very nice woman to deal with friendly and outgoing. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again.

Very professional, not a big business as it's run by him and his family. They came to my home, picked up the furniture and brought it to their repair shop. Several days later they called and said it was ready; the next day the brought the 2 chairs back. I know I wouldn't have had the extent of the work they did as reasonably priced by another larger business. I would strongly recommend them to anyone. I'm retired and living on a limited income, so he was a rare, but welcome, find.

came out as scheduled and gave us an initial price. I felt this was a little more than we had planned on spending. He worked with us in several different ways in order to meet our budget. The chairs were picked up on Thursday and returned on Friday. They look wonderful and much better than the original fabric. We were so pleased with their work and professionalism we will have them redo some other furniture in the near future.
