    Bottom line:  This company over charges for their services.  DO NOT USE THEM.  I had them replace a shower valve and they charged $175 to gain access through dry wall (I did it myself in 5 minutes), $260 for the valve (I purchased a high quality one at HD for $130), and $940.50 for labor (it took exactly one hour).  Total: $1375 !!!  You have got to be kidding.  I subsequently checked with 4 other plumbers in the area (never mentioning the outrageous pricing from A-1 American) and they were mostly in the ballpark of $500-$575, which included the cost of the valve and gaining access through the dry wall.

So A-1 American charges almost $1000 more than its competitors to replace a shower valve.  Consumers beware and spread the word!!!  This is criminal.

As you found, you really need to get quotes BEFORE the job instead of AFTER the job when it's too late.
