"Arrived on time and installed 3 tons of decorative gravel to "renew" ten year old desert landscaping. Cleaned up afterward and front yard looks great.

-Janet S.

's crew were professional, efficient, easy to communicate with, informative, and helpful. They came when they said they would, worked" long days, and did a beautiful job. And their value was great as well. We researched this project for a long time and we couldn't be happier that we chose them to carry out the work we wanted done. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get any type of paving, landscaping, or home improvement projects in general.

Add Curb Appeal with a Custom Driveway

Looking for a driveway that breaks out of the asphalt or concrete mold?

The Portland family wanted to add some unique outdoor elements to their new home. So they hired Matt Goddard of Poetry in Stone to install a path and a backyard seating area with a sunken fire pit.

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!

Stone And Gravel reviews in Blaine


The team at
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
&K did a fabulous job in our property. We are very happy with every single project they completed. It is not only that they are AMAZING masons but they are wonderful hands on people. They are very punctual and professional. They answered all the questions we had and were very open to any changes we had to make. They did a good job cleaning up after everything was finished. We would happily recommend them and they are our to go to masons for every project (big or small) we had or will have in the future.

I ordered a load of mulch, it was scheduled, and a good quality hardwood mulch was
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
on time. The price was within the average going price for hardwood mulch at the time and the quality was very good with very little foreign materials. I would use again.
- Henry B.

They were booked several weeks out, but they told me that up front. They trenched out away from the house for 3 of my downspouts, placing 4" pipe down about a foot. Placed pop up covers on the drain ends. I was impressed that they laid plywood down while trenching, to make their work easier when filling the trenches back in. They seed the areas and covered with straw when they were done. The 3 employees I talked with were great.

I hired
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
in May to build a pole building. The contract says it would be finished by June 30, weather permitting. June was rainy, to be fair, but
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
and August were so dry that we were in a drought.
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
works with an excavator,
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
. They are next door neighbors. Every delay that Caliber had was blamed on
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
not having his work finished. When I called
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
, he said that CPB told him they didn't need him to do anything at that point. Neither wants to return phone calls and e-mails to CPB may be answered after a week or not at all. Communication is next to impossible with them. They will return calls and e-mails when you start the contract and when they are about to get your money. Once they have your money this changes. They did not require money up front, but wanted me to pay each material supplier as they made a delivery. I work out of state and could not be there for multiple deliveries. So I paid $15,000 up front to cover most of this. I paid a second payment up front of $4325 on 7/7/2015 to finish the work. This second payment consisted mostly of pouring concrete outside the building and finishing up. From this point on I couldn't get the work finished. I contacted them by phone and e-mail without any results. I was told that they needed the excavator to do work before they could do anything. He said they told him they didn't need him. I offered to rent a backhoe and do the work myself. I didn't get a response. I e-mailed that I wanted to meet with them at the site to know what needed done so that I could do the excavation work, and that I would take a week off work to do this. No response. I tracked both down to their houses and tried to talk to each of them. When I went to
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
Domanick's house (
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
Building), he came out with his fists clenched, jaw clenched, face red and looking like he was ready to fight. He told me that nobody had ever come to his house before and that he didn't appreciate me going to where his wife works. I had gone to the Smithmill post office to find out where they lived and by
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
his wife works there. I had no idea. We talked and I thought that we had things worked out. They did a little bit of work the following week and
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
did more excavating. I then realized that the building permit did not show that 2 inspections were done. I called the inspector to see if this needed done and was informed that the first 2 inspections were not done and needed to be. I called Caliber on September 2, 2015 and left a message that the inspections had not been done and that I wanted to meet with them that evening or the following evening to get this worked out. I received a return call that afternoon from
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
and it was full of "F-you's" and ended with "I'll finish your building when h*** freezes over!" I called the inspector to come out the next day so we could see what needed to be done to pass inspection. At this point I didn't intend to wait until "h*** freezes over" to have my project finished and knew I needed to hire a second contractor. The first inspection required the inspector to see that the posts were set to the correct depth and that concrete was poured properly around them. This was to be done before any other work was done. At this point the building was mostly built and a concrete floor was over the posts. To pass this required digging up the posts. Fortunately, I saw the holes dug and the concrete, so I was able to sign an affidavit for that. The second missed inspection required the inspector to see the headers attached to the posts and the trusses attached to the headers. No other work was to be done until this inspection was done. These were missing bolts and straps to connect everything. We were also missing bracing in the corners of the walls and bracing of the trusses. Metal siding had already been put over the headers from the outside, so putting the bolts in these trusses would mean removing the metal siding or going through the siding. The second inspection was failed. I contacted a second contractor and he came right out to finish the work. Without me telling him what failed he walked around and pointed out everything that was missing. To finish the concrete work that had not been finished, and to do the work to bring the building up to code, the cost was $4852.48.

I work with alot of contractors and

was professional, honest, realistic and punctual. I would highly recommend him and will use his services for other jobs in the future. His office manager was professional, friendly and helpful.

This is a top notch company. I'm very happy from the start . The rep,
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
, was very professional, taking time to walk me through all the options. The crew of 6-8 people were uniformed and professional. I paid a little extra for quality but that is what I got in return.

Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
, and the whole
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
crew were extremely professional and did a great job from start to finish. Shinda followed up quickly on the initial contact, did a speedy site visit, and figured out how to make it work. This job was a bit tricky as I wanted to reuse materials on site and other contractors had told me balancing the cut and fill would be a challenge -- but this team figured it out. They did a great job on the boulder cascade in the back yard using boulders already on site, and it looks really great. I also appreciate that
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
invests in the right equipment to make short work of a project - this was a 2.5 day project. The team was courteous and friendly, had the confidence and openness of knowledgeable professionals, answered all my questions and made wise recommendations -- I'm really pleased with the result. I would not hesitate to recommend this company!

Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
and the rest of their crew were amazing. They all were pleasant, polite and efficient. From the moment we first met
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
, when he came to give us the estimate, we felt comfortable and he made us feel that he was being very honest with us. They removed old cement blocks from the yard, graded it for drainage and replaced them with a beautiful paver patio and firepit. They also worked on our side yard, leveling it and filling in what was just dirt, with bricks and pond stones.
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
also did a few little extras for us which we really appreciated. During the whole process, it was important to them that we knew exactly what was happening and explaining any problems or issues that turned up. We also like the fact that
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
or CJ or both (along with Grandpa
Blaine Stone Paving Companies Provider Name Locked
) were at the job site with the rest of the crew, every day. We would definitely hire them again, without hesitation. Thanks again, guys.....my grandson can't wait to make S'mores in the new firepit!
