"Contacted provider assuming they would make right. They repeatedly refused using a variety of excuses. Had been too long (over two weeks!), no cleaning is perfect" (there was no cleaning), etc. Plan to dispute charge.

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!

Excellent!

the owner was punctual, very courteous and accommodating.
He gave us an estimate and an approximate time of completion. He also pointed things out to us while he did the work and advised us on what to do and products to use to prolong the life of our carpets. That is something you do not get for free.

..I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED SUCH BAD SERVICE from any type of service company in my entire life!. Two young men (looked to be late teens or early twenties) showed up to clean the carpets for the home I was getting ready to sell. They finished so quickly that I found it hard to believe. I understood why when I saw the carpet the next day after it dried. It looked as though their carpet cleaning machine and just sucked up the dirt and then left it to dry on top. I had asked if they guaranteed their work before they left and they said yes so even though I was disappointed with the job they did I felt they would make it right. I called and let them know that the job needed to be done again and they came out the same day. The same kids came and said they would clean it again but the carpet was clean when they left (WRONG!) and they said the contractors we had working there must have walked on it but there would have been no reason for the contractors to walk on that part of the carpet since they were all finished with their work in that room. Then they said it was probably just the lighting that made it look like it wasn't clean or it was just the way the nap of the carpet

. It was one excuse after another. They ran their machine over it all again but when it dried the next day it was still not clean (better but not clean). I was very angry so I called and asked to speak to a supervisor or the owner. I was told they had left for the day and they would be in after 10am the next day. I phoned the next day around 10:30am and was told they were running late. I finally was able to speak to someone in charge late that afternoon. I think she said her name was

or Vel, (the accent sounded middle eastern) she proceeded to yell at me and then she lied and said the contractors left footprints on the carpet and that they had admitted to walking on the carpet. I knew that wasn't true because the contractors last day there was the day before the carpet cleaning so they never could have spoken to them and I had checked out the carpet and there were no footprints of any sort. Anyways she continued to scream at me and yell over my conversation but finally said they would send them back a few days later to look at the carpets again then called two hours before they were to come and said they decided not to come out again after all. I hung up on them!
I needed an expert carpet cleaning job as I will be showing my home and needed it to look really great. Now people will come in and see the blotchy, unprofessional work they did and now I will have to pay another company to come out again and do the kind of work I paid for the first time. I asked for a refund of my $200 and was told they do not give refunds.
I should also mention that for some odd reason their company seems to use at least three different names that being Carpet Cleaning Services, Citrus carpet cleaning and
New Hartford Upholstery Cleaners Provider Name Locked
. Their invoice had a phone number or 1-877-1548 but no address. The boys that came out said the business was in downtown L.A. and that was the only indication of their location.
I would not waste my money calling this company to clean your carpets. You would be better of getting some kids from middle school to do it for the same quality but less money.
