arrived the day. I first called and provided a detailed estimate- which eventually proved to be accurate. They arrived when scheduled, worked hard, were very pleasant.

"In the website it specifically said they have a
side service which I signed up for and received a receipt. After 2 weeks I called to see" where the can was and a less than sympathic representative
said " oh we don't offer that anymore. Why in the world would you take people's personal information and not take the service off your website. I told
you have my credit card information His answer " oh we don't do anything with it" sorry but that's not reassuring. I'll be speaking with further people about this, I would recommend not using this service.

Dumpster rental

While most homeowners can take care of basic trash disposal on their own, large jobs, such cleaning out your basement or renovating your bathroom, require a more complex process.

Renting a dumpster is a cost-efficient way to clear away junk, debris and unwanted items.

Want to trash the old junk around your house? Find out whether a dumpster or hauling service fits your junk-hauling needs.

If you have decided to dispose of your leftover paint, the first thing you should consider is the type of paint you have, says Owings. (Photo by Wade Dowdy)

Unless you have painted the majority of your house one color, you likely have leftover paint in buckets around your house. Learn how to dispose of it properly.

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!

Dumpster Rental reviews in Fairfax


Great. I called and they delivered the next day at a rental property that I was doing minor renovations on. I was even given a discount for being an Angie's List member. They called to remind me of the delivery the day before and called before the pick up date to ensure I did not want to extend the rental. Great customer service!
- Sean D.

The garage was quite disgusting and
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
had to work around a large classic car that did not run and could not be removed for the clean out. He worked diligently and methodically. I was very impressed and I will DEFINITELY use him again. It took 5 truckloads at $80 per truck and I had $36 in tipping fees. For the job I had I thought it was very reasonable. I think that if I had gotten a dumpster and done it myself it probably would have run in the ballpark of what I paid . Thanks,

FIrst, the day of the dumpster drop off I asked when ordered will it be delivered in the afternoon and recieved a friendly yes that should not be a problem, so at 8:30am the day of the drop off I was very surprised. Living on a city street you have neighbors cars that need to be moved etc. So their lack of schedulingwas terrible but the driver was nice enough so I did not want to complain..
BUT then for the pick up I called on a Thursday at 9:30am, I said I need to schedule
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
pick up I can be home this afternoon or tomorrow to make sure it is clear for you to come. THey said they will get there within 48 hours (which is ridiculous that they cant even give some sort of estimate its not rocket science to schedule things like a professional) But that the driver will call when they are on their way to be sure we are ok . But again to my surpirse I recieve a phone call an hour later that they just tried to remove it but here were cars in the way. When I scheduled the pick up I speccifically asked if they would call beforehand and was told YES. After I have my neighbors move their cars I call back to be told no they are not coming.
THats not even the worst part. I get a phone call later from a woman in billing saying she needs to charge me for a dry run since there were cars in the way earlier. I said well you never called me to tell me you were coming so how is this my fault, how can people plan accordingly if you don't as a service? I told the woman I had to leave work for the day to go have the cars movedand now I am being told they are not even coming, and her response "WELL WHY don't YOU JUST GO BACK TO WORK"... Ummm WOW. Really? So you are not only unproffesional but also incredibly rude to your customers. Her name is
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
at local dumpster rental. Her phone number was 888-711-6772. I cannot believe how I was treated, from a customer service standpoint if I ran this buisness she'd be fired and I would hire people that actually know how to properly run a buisness.
- Jackie T.

The lady at the office was very helpful and scheduled the delivery. The driver was personable and very efficient. I kept the dumpster for two weeks and called for a pickup. The dumpster was removed the next day. Had an email very soon after pickup thankikg nme for my business. The experience was very pleasant.
- Thomas G.

The dumpster came when it was supposed to, but the driver was not good at placing it. He was supposed to leave room to park a car because our town has an ordinance against parking on the street over night. There was no room to park a car, so we had to make special arrangements to avoid getting ticketed every night for the next 2 weeks. Also, the driver did not have the planks we requested, so the dumpster ended up damaging our asphalt driveway because the weather was hot (hot asphalt + heavy object = big gouges in the driveway). When I called on a Wednesday to schedule removal, they couldn't come until the next Tuesday. Annoying, but fine, not their fault...except they didn't show up on Tuesday. They missed multiple scheduled pick-ups. On the day they finally came, they called early in the morning and woke us up (before 7).
- Anna T.

I've used this provider in the past for 3 other projects. At this location, this was the second dumpster requested. The first one was delivered, used and picked up. The pickup was delayed a day but didn't really affect anything. The second dumpster was delivered. It was not delivered on schedule by a couple of days but again, we redirected effort and no serious impact. When I scheduled pickup of the second dumpster, the area where it was located was fine (dry) for pickup. Two days beyond the scheduled pickup, I called again. I spoke with
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
on each of these occasions and he said they had a truck in the area and would pick it up that afternoon. No one showed up and it was too late to call again that day. That evening there were very heavy rains and it rained all day the following day. We lost power the following day at the site and I left about 2pm. The third day I returned to the site and the dumpster was gone. This would be fine except it is expected that reasonable judgement regarding where
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
should go with their trucks would be used. The damage to the yard was ridiculous; trenches up to 7" deep and 1 foot wide in some places. Water was obviously standing over the entire area when the driver decided that no respect for the property landscape was due. The water was still standing in and around the trenches. One flowering bush, over 7' high, was pushed over at approximately a 30 degree angle. If the damage were easily recoverable by raking, I would not have contacted them, but the damage was so ridiculous that I called to ask that they send someone to flatten out all the trenches. He wanted to know if it was really that bad, so I took pictures and emailed directly to him. I spoke to
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
again after I'd sent the photos and he said he'd send someone when they were in the area. 2 weeks pass, nothing. I call again to remind
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
that nothing had been done. My call was directed to
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
and again he said he'd get it fixed. Another 2 weeks pass, same cycle. I call again,
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
says he'll correct the problem and nothing happens. I spoke with him 5 times plus the email. My last call was 8/19 and he was "unavailable", so I explained my challenge to the lady who answered the phone (who was polite and professional) and she said she was sorry and that she'd be sure to tell
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
I called. I've been patient for months and think that is all that is required of a customer. If
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
is concerned about their customers or customer's property, I feel that something would have been done. Since I have call logs and email, I intend to initiate a small claim for the damage against
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
. I have used another service for dumpsters since and do not intend on using
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
in the future. I have told other small business designer/contractors in the area of my experience and they have also selected other providers. I feel this review is specifically deserved because I was told on multiple occasions that the problem would be corrected and that was apparently something to placate me over the phone and was a complete lie. I don't appreciate or respect that and, for me, it is a character flaw I can't tolerate. If there is another owner of
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
, I hope he is concerned that his staff is dishonest to the customers. I still expect
Fairfax Dumpster Rentals Provider Name Locked
to correct the problem they created. I will also be reporting this to the BBB. Once the small claim is initiated and resolved, I will be glad to post the results of that as well.
- Sheri L.

Can't really say much other than it was a great experience: very responsive, very fast delivery, dropped exactly where I described to them over the phone, picked up promptly, and more! Phone calls are short, to the point and they immediately get to work on your needs. I would most certainly use them again!
- Todd M.

They did a good job. They were timely and polite. The only other comment I have is that perhaps the cost is a bit high for twenty minutes of work.
