"Scheduling the appointment was slow. We first contacted
at the end of August, exchanged a couple emails, and then didn't hear from them" for a week, and had to re-contact them before an appointment got scheduled. On the day of the appointment,
was a bit late, but she called to let me know she was running behind. Once the inspection started, it went really well.
walked through everything she was doing and explained the process and the test. She was clearly knowledgable about lead and lead testing, and answered all questions clearly and confidently. In the end, she took 75$ off the price because the appointment went faster than she expected.

-Katie K.

team was extremely responsive as always, punctual and highly effective. They came quickly after we called them and addressed the problem" in one visit. They were highly professional and courteous. Their people know what they are doing and they know how to size up problems and fix them right away. Their equipment is state of the art and they don't waste time Their pricing is very fair and they know how to work with insurance adjustors. I have used this team for many years in different capacities and I would strongly recommend them for both routine and emergency work.

Find 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.

The Environmental Protection Agency is requiring renovators and remodelers to be certified on lead-safe work practices by 2010.

Before you start your home improvement project, learn common mistakes to avoid a disaster.

It's vital to hire an EPA-certified contractor to handle remodeling projects that involve lead paint, says Wright. (Photo by Brandon Smith)
Lead Testing & Removal

On this episode of Chat with the Experts, we talk with Dollis Wright about how to protect your family from lead poisoning and how to handle lead in your home.

Current EPA rules require only a visual examination after work is done in a home that contains lead hazards, but a clearance test provides the best results.

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!

's crew was extremely professional and got us back in to our house in a timely manor. The windows look wonderful and are extremely efficient. I would recommend his company for any of your window/painting/lead abatement needs.
- Casey F.

Although the replacement of the front door was fairly expensive
Louisville Lead Abatement Contractors Provider Name Locked
did not spend any money before consulting with us (I really appreciated that). The new front door looks great although I wish they had told me that the new wood on the inside surrounding the door would be unpainted.
They were very professional and always communicative. Additionally, they let us pick out/buy the exact door we wanted from Home Depot and they just went and picked it up.
Overall, it was a very good experience working with

and I would highly recommend them to others.
- Chelsea P.

Art came out to our house the same day I called him to perform the initial testing and I had a full "Risk Assessment" report less than 36 hours later. He then performed 2 rounds of clearance testing after cleanup was performed by a 3rd party. This was a very stressful time that my family was forced to move out of our house and Art was always responsive and friendly. I would have no hesitation recommending EnviroTest to anyone who needs lead paint or dust testing.
- Christian W.

The inspection went very well. He offered two packages - one for $300 and another for ~ $800. The $300 package was sufficient for our needs. He spot checked areas of concerns, and we were able to pick up on a trend of where the lead paint was located. The $800 package included a thorough inspection of every room and a detailed report.

was referred to us by our pest inspector. We scheduled an appointment with

for our inspection. He was well educated in the field and calming. To me, mold in the home is little uneasy. He let us know we were in good hands and would come back to take a test sample after my husband and I had a

about our treatment plan. Those two ladies are so amazing. They are patient and caring, to the point that they are working with our flooring person and carpet company to make this situation smoother. When you tackle something this big it's such a treat to have someone take some stuff off your plate. Going above and beyond! Yesterday the crew came out to start the demo and treatment of the mold in our home. The crew was outstanding. We are so blessed to have 3 kind gentlemen to work on our home.

also did more than expected. They left our house safer and healthier than they started. Not only did the three of them remove all the carpet in the basement, bedroom and work on mold in 2 of the bathrooms and 2 ceiling areas between 9-3pm! That's so impressive. There are 2 large air purifiers in the home now along with our first fogging treatment. Please feel confident that you are making the right choice when choosing this company.

Called them on Thursday, they came Sunday. Very punctual and polite. Extremely helpful and explained everything to me. This was my first home and they went through everything I'd need to know.

was great. First, he took the time to thoroughly explain the services he provided, what he thought I needed, and what it would all cost. He then carefully examined my home for lead and allowed me to follow along asking questions. Finally, having found some lead, he then suggested a number of solutions and referred me to various providers. I would highly recommend him to anybody who needs to have his/her house checked for lead.
- Alexander B.

Towards the end of the inspection, we asked the inspector about the fence. We had previously inspected and noticed they were in bad shape, we had several loose slats. The inspector said he had inspected it. So we took the pictures ourselves and submitted to our agent who made sure that the fence was included. The inspector had to do an amendment for the final document. We were concerned that if something obvious like that was missed, what else could be there? Sure enough Day 8 of owning a house, while the painters were masking the upstairs bathroom, the bolt that holds the tank to the toilette was not tight enough and water started leaking. The water leaked out and the tank kept filling up. Basically water poured out of there a whole afternoon. We noticed the carpet soaked. Then the water went downstairs and flooded the master closet and master bathroom. Upon examination, we noticed that the bolt was pretty loose, and not a leak out of the pipe as we initially thought. The claims adjustor stated that things like this should be caught in inspection. The painters made the mistake of not shutting down the water. We were very lucky our insurance paid for everything after our deductible, but the headache of having a house torn apart and unable to move in your dream home is priceless. After I submitted a 1 start review on Facebook, the inspector called us and reimbursed us with the amount that we paid. Thank you

Inspection for at least following up with us. I would have loved to do a follow up review on Facebook, however, my professional review was reported to the admins as "inappropriate" and deleted. However, they are very professional, and I must admit they handled everything very professionally
