KITCHEN REMODELING PROCESS

1. Visit our beautiful showroom and consult with one of our talented designers.

2. Set an appointment for designer to visit your home to take dimensions and discuss design options.(free of charge)

3. A “basic” design will be generated from your consultation. This design is used to help develop a general concept for your new kitchen.

4. A preliminary estimate can be developed…within reason…changes or additions will affect the final price.

5. When a final design and scope of construction work is established we can then make final selections on the cabinets, countertops, plumbing fixtures, windows, doors, tile, etc. A final cost is calculated and a contract is signed. In most cases, cabinets have a 6 week (+/-) lead time.

SEQUENCE OF REMODELING WORK

  1. Demolition and removal of debris.
  2. Rough mechanical work-(plumber/electrician/heating & A/C). Mechanical work will be performed while the walls are accessible.
  3. Rough Carpentry- Removing and rebuilding walls/changing windows, doors.
  4. Drywall/Plaster Repair- After all mechanical work and rough carpentry is done, the walls and ceiling will be repaired.
  5. Finish Carpentry- Installation of wood floors, sub floors for tile, trim windows and doors, and installation of cabinetry.
  6. Countertops- A template is made for your countertop after the cabinets have been installed. The tops are typically returned in 1 ½ to 3 weeks, depending on the material being used.
  7. Installation of countertops, wall and floor tile. Finish mechanicals, plumbing and electrical. Finish polyurethane on hardwood.
  8. Before final completion, a “punch list” is usually generated to identify and complete any remaining details.

A normal kitchen project has the duration of 4 to 7 weeks.
However, each project is unique and will have a different duration.
