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!

is an excellent painter. His work was immaculate. He really takes pride in his work. He did a great job putting up a chain link fence. I would recommend him to everyone. I rate him a A+ I am going to hire him again.
- Jeffrey T.

Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
was extremely responsive and removed the material within 2 hours of first calling. Even swept area afterwards. Pricing was very good especially compared to other more mainstream providers. Just heads up that he only takes check or cash. Would definitely use him again.
- Kristen F.

I was able to set a date just a few days following my phone call. Mr.
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
was very polite as were his helpers. They removed everything promptly and efficiently. Mr.
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
was able to give me an approximate time of arrival so I didn't have to wait around all morning, and he arrived just a little ahead of target time.

I work for Angie's List, and I am actually working in the tree service department. I know every tree company from New
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
to LA and I made that abundantly clear to
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
's And sons when I called. I called these guys up to see if they could haul away some brush in my yard and grind some stumps at my home. The man I spoke to on the phone,
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
Burns said he would have some guys come and look at my yard for an estimate. 3 guys show up that same day to give me an estimate. I was surprised that they came as fast as they did. The 3 men and I discussed cost of
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
brush away, and the grinding of 7-9 stumps. The price on
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
was a little rich for my blood, so I agreed to pay them for the removal of my stumps. They assured me that in the early part of next week that someone would be out there to
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
for gas lines, and when they came to call back to set up an appointment. The guys never showed up to
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
anything, and a full week and 1 day went by and nothing. I called
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
again and said hey listen I had 3 guys come out and give me an estimate and they said that someone would be out the next day to
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
for lines. I told
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
nobody came to
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
anything. He said I'm so sorry, I'll have someone come tonight to
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
the lines, and we will be out by Wednesday to finish the job. I said ok that will be fine. After waiting and waiting and waiting, I was starting to feel like a kid waiting on
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
Clause to come shimmying down the chimney. I'm so done with
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
and sons and his group or circus freaks I could scream. As an employee of Angie's List, we work hard everyday trying to make sure that the companies we put up in front of our members are reliable, reputable, honest, and just, and this was just not the case with
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
and sons. I will not recommend this company to anyone nor would I advise any of our members to use them. Maybe I got lost in the shuffle, maybe I didn't, either way they dropped the ball and I find that hard to believe, especially since they knew who I worked for.

Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
is great. We moved in our new house a month ago and have used
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
's services twice. The first time he removed an old shed, over 60 bags of construction debris, and an old satellite at a more than fair price. The second time he and his coworker built a new shed for us and removed more debris from the yard at a very fair price and did a great job once again. I would recommend
Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
to anyone out there. He is very good guy, a hard worker, and very fair with his prices...can't beat it.
- William R.

Lathrop Hauling Services Provider Name Locked
