"It was scheduled after contacting angie's list on the phone because the company had not responded to our on line contact. we were quoted $109 after I gave" the list of the items to be picked up. I was told that when they come they will estimate again and that it may be a little more and that we had the option not to accept the service. they were very nice when they came and told us that it may be a little more. of course we did not get the exact amount. .we did not have any extra items. but in the end they charged us $225 more(in addition to the $109 we had already paid). we felt cheated.

"They showed up with their gigantic truck and trailer, 3 guys ready to haul junk away. I had an organized pile of things I needed gone in my back yard and they loaded" it all up with haste into their dumpster on wheels. They were swift and polite. I had some electronics I needed taken away as well but they informed me of an extra charge but made some suggestions on how to take care of it for free else where (recycling). Overall I was very pleased with the service, I was expecting one guy with a pick up truck and anticipated needing to help this individual handle the trash but I didn't need to lift a finger. The only thing I might note on negativity relates to the responsiveness category. They were very responsive, once I was contacted by them. I bought their service and was expecting to be contacted within 2 business days, but I was contacted 3 or 4 business days. The claim was the angies list notification wasn't functioning correctly for them, I don't know if this is true or not but it's hard to knock them on this note. If others have this issue though with responsiveness and they give you a similar line you can tell them you've heard this line before or tell them to prove it. Beyond this, they were punctual and responsive.

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!

Drake, Ed, and
York Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
were professional, prompt, efficient and polite. I called the service number and made the appointment for the same week. Drake explained the costs and it was well worth it, including getting rid of 2 televisions for $15 each. I would recommend using this service, especially if you're unable to do heavy lifting. They opened boxes and I looked through them before they were junked.

They ask you to set up a 2 hour window for service and will call you 20 to 30 minutes before they arrive. They actually called forty minutes before the scheduled start time and asked if it would be a problem if they arrived 20 minutes before their scheduled start time. No problem. They then got here exactly when they said they would.
It was two clean, neat, and very pleasant and professional young men. I showed them what needed to be hauled. They gave me a pretty high quote even after my Angie's List coupon was deducted. I almost had second thoughts, but they told me that the estimate was probably high, but couldn't exactly say until they loaded the truck--cost is based on truckloads. I went ahead and asked them to load up. The estimate turned out be be significantly higher than the final cost. I was sort of surprised at the cost, but I've never had haulers before so the cost may have been very reasonable. It just seemed high to me. But not high enough that I wouldn't call them again.
The work the young men did was very thorough and efficiently handled. They just kept going--and it was HOT. They put as much as they could into the truck by carrying it, but they then had to break out the shovel, rake, and trash bags to load up all of the pine needles I had gathered together. They never stopped and they never gave any sign of complaint. And when they had loaded all they could, they asked me if I was satisfied with what they'd done or did I need any more done.
I couldn't have been happier with the service or the professionalism they offered.

Excellent. They came right on time and loaded up everything within 15 minutes. I had called Rich at 8:00 am and he said he could get to our home at about 1:15 pm that day. He called before he came and was right on time. Extremely pleased with both Rich & his son (also named "Rich")

Very, very professional from start to finish. They sent an email reminder the day before pickup, two gentlemen were pleasant and professional; and followed up with a phone call the next day. Wonderful company to work with and I will use them in the future. Highly recommended!

Great experience. They arrived on time and kept us updated on their approximate arrival time. They did a quick walk through on the stuff we wanted them to take. They informed us that they will recycle and/or donate whatever they could. They took an extremely heavy cement filled pole. Hard work for a 90 degree day. They took many other things for a reasonable price based on volume. I would use them again fro sure.
