Home Depot Rip-Off?


that price sounds reasonable to me. its within the going rate. you will get different prices through different people mind you

i typically charge $250 to install a exterior door .. this includes a blueskin or vycor drip pan installed on the sil to stop water damage to the floor. along with the door hardware and spray foam seal.. interior trim is extra

He lives in another city. After they piled on things + $225 for the alarm, it wound up costing almost $1k.

Sounds pretty cheap, but I also have the "Pleasure" of dealing with HD instalations. They are horrendous usually, and HD does care. They care only about volume of installations, not how they actually are done.

You're not kidding....home depot did my kitchen refacing and the sub sucked....I wouldn't hire them again....the did do a countertop for me recently but I figured it would be hard to mess that up....think I got screwed on the price tho!
