all of" the lead inspectors I contacted in the northern california area wanted between $400 and $600 to come to the home, scrape one interior and one exterior wall of the home, and send it to a lab to determine if it tested positive. So i essentially would get two pieces of wood tested.

He was thorough, friendly, and patient with our questions. He was quick to schedule us in as I voiced my concern about the home and my 1 year old son.

. He returned my call promptly and we scheduled an inspection for the next day. While it was indeed valuable to learn where the lead paint was hiding in the house, what impressed me most was the amazing lead paint education I received. From it's history, to it's application, safe handling techniques, and abatement procedures, I was left with a new understanding of it's dangers.

Finding a contractor for lead paint removal

Millions of homes built before 1978 still contain lead paint. EPA guidelines now mandate safe cleaning practices for lead paint removal, but not all contractors follow the rules.

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!

investigated the problems, offered his expert advice on possible next steps, and very patiently answered my multiple questions, putting my mind at ease. When I proceed to more permanent mold prevention solutions, I will be using his company. I highly recommend his company to Angie's List members seeking remediation and abatement solutions!

He was recommended by our relator and we used him because the person we wanted to use was booked. We realize now we should have waited because although he was nice and seemed thorough' at the time..we know now after living in the house for a few months that was not the case. We asked him at the inspection to please be thorough because the house was at our
Gresham Lead Paint Removal Provider Name Locked
budget so there was no room for repairs. The only thing he really said were "major" issues were a few electrical outlets, one window sill, and the water heater, although was not leaking at the time, needed to be replaced eventually because of the rust. The rust was from the well water..at least this is what he said. We moved into the house about a month after we purchased it and the problems start. That non leaking water heater was actually leaking through the subfloor and that rust was a result of this. He missed it from underneath too because the water heater had leaked through the subfloor and it was rotted through with wet insulation. We only found this because we were trying to be proactive in replacing it before it started leaking. We hear a squirrel one morning in our attic and called someone only to find we have extensive electrical damage and gapping holes along roof line that was "old" because it was so extensive and there were areas the previous owners attempted to repair so this was missed. I called him about this and he never called me back. We can see daylight in our walk up attic because the wall is pulling away from the brick chimmey and there is a crack where this joint is supposed to meet.. How did he miss this???? There appeared to be a leak in the roof in the attic which he tested with his fancy device, which must not have been on because now we have a leak from that exact same spot. I hear dripping and go into the attic to find a puddle on the floor. We remove the refrigerator to see that there was an old leak from the water line that was not repaired and where the water was just turned off. The subfloor is damaged here also. These are only the things we found within a month's time. I am so frustrated and I wished we would have used someone else because it would have made us reconsider. Things just keep adding up and everyone who comes to discover the problem keeps asking us how did your home inspector miss this???

Lead testing indicated that our primary residence had lead throughout. Windows, doors, closet doors, baseboards all tested positive for lead. The home was built in the 1800's and there was concern that we could not find a certified de-leader to maintain the character of the house while de-leading. I had been cautioned that certified de-leaders are able to de-lead but not able to do quality construction or finish work. There was no way we would have considered using luan or vinyl just to cover up the problem.
NER was the third or fourth contractor who visited our home. From the moment we began working with NER it was clear that they understood the importance of de-leading while maintaining the character of an old home. In our home, there were old moldings, baseboards and doors that needed to be removed and replaced. NER promised to take the time to match the old moldings and baseboards and they delivered. NER ordered special closet doors to fit the tiny closet openings from our old home. The doors look great.

was our project manager. He searched high and low for hardware for the new doors that would match our old home. He did an excellent job. NER was on-time and on-budget from the initial consultation through the finished job. There were areas where NER did more than required to insure that the house looked great when finished. For example, on our exterior windows, they scraped the entire trim around the windows even though they are only required to go up to 5 or 6 feet to obtain lead compliance. They also did more interior painting than we had expected (we changed many old elements in the home that were a dark brown to a white which required several coats of paint -- they also painted many brown elements that did not require de-leading just so they would match the brown to white changeover).
We thought that the price was fair considering the scope of the work that needed to be done (not too high and not artificially low). NER was able to help us obtain financing for the project through a third-party lender. The cost included all replacement windows and doors, replacement moldings, etc. The closet doors ended up being special order items that cost more than NER expected. Nonetheless, NER stuck to its price. We knew that with our old home, there would be surprises. No matter what happened, NER stuck to its price and delivered. Any problems that arose were handled immediately and professionally. All calls and questions were answered promptly. The entire project took about 4 weeks.

is very friendly and accommodating. I needed my house to be de-leaded for tenants' arrival. Not only did he finish the job ahead of the promised time (who's heard of that in the contractor business?!), his price was reasonable (priced right in the middle of the other estimates).
Since I was not able to be present during the whole process, I had to place a lot of trust into his word.
A little over a week after he started the job, I received the compliance letter. I would hire him again if I had another house to de-lead! :)

He was extremely helpful and responsive when we called him. He advised us to get a formal lead inspection, then came over to the house and spent over an hour looking at the work to be done, reviewing the report, and taking notes. We were ready to hire him but unfortunately after that he never responded to us despite calling him, texting him, and emailing him. Very disappointing as we had high hopes that he would do a great job.
