"We decided rather than purchase new furniture to have a 10 year old loveseat/Chair set re-upholstered. There were two options:1) Purchase the fabric ourselves" and then find an upholstering expert or 2) Have
do the whole thing. After comparing prices, we decided on the former.
was very highly recommended and also submitted the lowest price. When it came time to pick up the furniture they carried both items down some very steep stairs without complaint. We were advised that it could take up to 4 - 5 weeks for the work to be completed so you can imagine how surprised we were when it took about 15 days. The results were wonderful. The quallity of the work superb. You couldn't find nicer people to work with.

"My experience with
was very positive. They carefully assessed the condition of the chair that needed repair, advised me of what they could" do and what complications might be encountered. Work was done on time and for the price quoted. Did a very nice job.

Should I hire an upholstery professional for my furniture?

Many people have no idea of the costs or benefits in reupholstering a piece of furniture. Learn how upholstering can benefit your current furniture.

Upholstery

Upholstering is the process of covering a high-quality piece of furniture, antique or keepsake with materials such as fabric and padding. Freshen the look of a room by giving furniture a new look.

Experts say reupholstery can give older, quality furniture a good-as-new look. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Krystal C., Brooklyn, N.Y.)

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!

Met with

and discussed different possibilities of covers (cloth, vinyl, leather). Decided on type, color, style. Actual work took a little longer than anticipated but the work turned out very (1) good. Workmanship was excellent, style was just as discussed and overall very pleased with the outcome. Had some minor difficulties reinstalling the chairs (I removed them and took to

I chose
Portland Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
because of the raving reviews on angieslist. They are a phenomenal upholsterer. I had a very clear vision of what I wanted to do to my headboard and matching bench and
Portland Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
went above and beyond my expectations. There was a waiting period of a few weeks before they were able to pickup my items. They then sent them to another company to be custom painted before starting. From the point of pickup, the wait was minimal.
Expensive; yes. Time-consuming; yes. Able to listen to my ramblings and discern important details from my babbling; yes. Deliver a beautiful, custom, one-of-a-kind heirloom quality piece to my door; yes.
Portland Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
and
Portland Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
were very professional and personable and both lovely to work with. In fact, I've already given them more pieces to work their magic on. Just that awesome.
Also, if I hadn't had my own fabric, they have a showroom with literally hundreds of fabric samples and I would have easily found another in their stock.
If you select an inexpensive upholsterer, you will receive cheap work. If you care about quality and workmanship, contact an elite professional, like

Called and spoke with
Portland Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
who came the next day for a quote which was much better than buying a new couch, completely planning to restuff the armrests, seat, and back coushions! Got on the schedule within 10 days and paid for the pickup and delivery option. (Have to put 1/2 down when you schedule). Our couch ended up being VERY heavy so they definately earned that money. Brought the couch back a week later having to reassemble it in my living room so they didn't have to carry the heavy thing back in, but OH MY GOSH, it's better than it was new! Very happy. Highly recommend this company.

The finished pillows were perfect - just the size I wanted and they looked like they were the originals -- same piping and a zipper if I need to remove the stuffing to clean the pillow.

We had several estimates for our work, and
Portland Upholsterers Provider Name Locked
was the most reasonable and most highly recommended. I took in pictures of the 2 wing back chairs and ottoman that needed reupholstering, and they gave me a bid and a date. The work was done in just over a week, and it was meticulously done. We purchased our material elsewhere, so the cost is labor only. They were a joy to work with, and it was well worth the drive across town. I am extremely particular, and I would never use anyone else after our positive experience!

I met with We a couple times before having our couch taken to their shop. We provided the fabric and discussed the work and received his estimate. We had the couch delivered, they finished it ahead of schedule and i looks beautiful. Additionally the covered a throw pillar and cover for another one at no additional charge. We're very pleased with their work, the price and their business. I would highly recommend them.

From the initial email to the visits in the shop, to post calls/emails; everything has been fantastic. They are quick to respond, very helpful and willing to do the research to make sure I'm happy. Great company that I will continue to use. Kaelish is indispensable resource for them.

After I picked out the desired fabric they came back the next day and hauled it off. It took about a month. Turned out the cushion material, which I had thought was worth saving, was shot, which added an extra $100 to the bid. When they brought it back it was perfect. It looked like the high-end piece of furniture it must have been when new. Solid, great support, everything was fit and right. While I gave them a B on price it was just because it hurt a bit. The work was worth it. I would recommend them without hesitation. They're a couple who do all the work themselves, but they could have used a

helper to help wrestle it into the house. That couch will certainly outlast me.
