I don't know where you are but that would be a steal here just for setting them. I might think about it for 3 times that much.

That sounds a little cheap...no ?
I don't want the contractors here to take any offense, but some of these fly by night "contractors" are ridiculous and really make it tough for you real pros out there. I've seen and heard too many horror stories in my neighboorhood.
If I'm looking for professional help, I'm verifying with the BBB, Nari, town, etc. Even then I'm not at ease until it's done.
