Your kitchen is the one room in your house that gets used the most. It makes sense that the wear and tear will be more than any other space in your home. So, when the time comes to renovate your kitchen, you don’t want to waste time and money with unskilled, untrustworthy contractors that will do a substandard job or take forever to finish the job. You need to be extra careful and keep the following in mind when hiring kitchen cabinet contractors.
#1 Not getting more than one quote
Kitchen renovations are considered major home improvements and the worst thing you can do is to settle for the first quote you receive. Do thorough research and find reliable kitchen cabinet contractors offering similar professional services, then get at least three quotes reflecting the same design, materials and hardware to enable you to get an idea of what the market price is.
#2 Not asking for references
Once you’ve settled on a quote, visit the website or Facebook page of your kitchen cabinet contractor and get feedback from former clients. People aren’t scared to share whether they got good or bad experiences with contractors. If you can’t find anything online, ask your contractor for references and phone them. If you’re satisfied with their response, you can trust that they know what they are doing.
#3 Hiring kitchen cabinet contractors based on price only
Going for the cheapest quote might be a huge mistake, unless you are satisfied after doing all the necessary research and feel certain that they are the best option. Make sure however, that they aren’t using lower quality materials and that they offer a quality cabinet structure and fit since this might negatively impact the job they do for you. A further consideration is the professionalism and service levels you receive from the company from the first moment you contact them. The first impression you get will most likely feed through the whole experience with them. Remember that the cheapest or even the most expensive quote is not necessarily a reflection of the best value for money or service levels you’ll receive.
