"I called the day before to find out price of reupholstering my kitchen chairs. Man who answered the phone gave me a price and said he is in from 7am-4pm. So I loaded up my chairs in" the car and drove 15 miles to his shop. When I got there I noticed he was at the top floor of the building and you had to climb 20 stairs up to even reach his door. I tried the intercom at the ground level and no answer. Called him on the phone and got VM. I tried calling another shop in
and the lady told me MrSharry had moved to Florida. She wasn't sure if someone bought him out. I don't know who I spoke with yesterday but I'm doubting there really is a

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!

I had a leather sofa and loveseat set that were only about 5 years old but had been ravaged by my cat. The frame and cushions were very solid, but the leather was trashed and beyond refurbishing. I chose

based on the reviews I read on Angie's List, their price quote which was about 30% less than two other companies I had contacted, and their responsiveness to my inquiries.
I'm so happy that I decided to go with

, my experience with them was fantastic! I initially called their main number directly and was told that I could send photos and dimensions of my pieces to

, who would get back to me with a quote.

was super easy to work with, with the majority of our communications happening conveniently through email. Within a few days I was told how much fabric I would need, had recommendations for three fabric stores ranging from high end to discount warehouse, a cost estimate for the labor, and an estimated project timeline. I had a few follow-up questions and received responses the same day.

met their timeline as promised. The finished sofa and loveseat are gorgeous and look brand new! The fabric I went with has a lined horizontal pattern, so I was slightly worried that the fabric might not be laid straight, but every line one every surface of my two pieces is perfectly horizontal, both front and back, even under and behind the cushions. The stitching is consistent and firm, and there are

zippers on all the cushions so that I can remove the covers to be cleaned. And, to make the experience even more satisfying, the delivery service they use arrived exactly when they said they would for both pick-up and delivery, and were extremely polite and careful to not ding my other furniture when they moved the items. I can't say enough about how happy I am with the end product and with the service received!

Everything went as promised. There was no problem with coordinating our schedule. The price they quoted was very reasonable and there were no extras. The new upholstery is nicely fitted and left over material was returned to us for making protective covers for arms and hear rest. They were very flexible with payment (we chose to use charge card). Overall, we are tickled with the work they did and are enjoying our like-new chairs

Newtown Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
Reupholstering order line on 6/30/2014 in the afternoon and the sales rep,
Newtown Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
, arrived on our doorstep that evening with the selections of materials we had telephonically discussed. As we were departing the country for a couple of months and we needed the item picked up within the week [ which it was, within a six hour window of their choice] and then we required that the newly reupholstered couch be returned to us upon our return two months later [again, with a six hour window of their choice]. They made the deadline, delivering a superbly crafted, reborn couch that should, with some supervision of the great grand kids, last us another twenty or so years. Also kudos to the pick-up and delivery crew Adolpho and

who were more than careful of the item involved and conscientiously aware of the surroundings in which they were working. But
