Homeowners know that to quickly boost the value of your home, you must remodel your kitchen or your bathroom.
In a kitchen remodel, the flooring, cabinetry, appliances, counters, sink, light fixtures and plumbing fixtures must be replaced to gain top dollar.
A kitchen remodeling contractor is an expert in kitchen remodels. They have the experience to get the job done on time and on budget so you can turn an outdated kitchen into a brand new workspace.
How Do I Select a Kitchen Remodeling Contractor?
Kitchen remodeling contractors generally have training in construction, carpentry and possibly interior design. With this kind of background, they can help you make the most of your area.
Therefore, you should look for someone that has an eye for design while also knowing how to complete the work required for remodeling a kitchen.
What Can I Expect from My Kitchen Remodeling Contractor?
A kitchen remodeling contractor’s first step is to look over your current kitchen in order to determine any problem areas.
He or she will then talk with you about what you want from your kitchen and will then determine how much it will cost. If you accept the estimate, the work will begin. This generally involves removing all of the old cabinets, unless they are being refinished.
The counters, appliances, flooring and any other worn items will also be removed so the kitchen remodeling contractor can work with a blank slate.
If the cabinets are being refinished, the doors will be taken off and stripped of old paint. The kitchen remodeling contractor will then remove knobs or handles in order to sand and stain the cabinetry.
If you want painted cabinets, they will be primed and then painted with a suitable paint. The new cabinets will then be hung, leveled and installed completely. Next, the counter will be installed. If you want a tiled countertop, the plywood layers will be installed and then the tiling job will begin.
Painting comes next, followed by the installation of new flooring and then finally the new appliances are installed. Knobs and trim work is last.
