Remodeling your kitchen can be a major undertaking requiring significant investment in time and money. We have all heard horror stories from friends or family that had a remodeling job go awry and they ended up both frustrated way over budget. Problems can be avoided by identifying what your goals for your kitchen remodeling project are upfront. We will help you by identifying the four biggest problems you face when remodeling your kitchen and how to overcome them.
Faulty Workmanship and contractor Fraud
Every year, more lawsuits and complaints are filed against remodeling contractors than almost any other industry. It is important to check with your local Better Business Bureau and online to see if the company you are considering has a good track record. Accutech actually institutes a “Code of Ethics & Competency” Consumer Protection Policy that includes a 15 Point Quality Compliance Checklist to ensure that our work is done correctly and our customers are happy.
Project Not Completed On Time
Being without your kitchen for longer than he expected can put a big strain on you and your family. Make sure the company you choose assigns a personal project manager to oversee the work, so that each phase of your remodeling job will flow smoothly into the next. This assures that your project will be completed on time and to your exact specifications.
The big home improvement centers offer low pricing, but then they slam you with high installation costs. Some kitchen designers provide incomplete estimates so they can charge for extras once you’ve once your project has begun. Make sure your contractor provides you with a complete written estimate for your kitchen remodeling project so there are no surprises and no hidden charges.
Dust From Demolition
Dust can be a huge problem on kitchen remodeling projects. If the contractor is not extremely careful the dust created during the job can dirty your entire floor. The top notch companies use a unique “low dust” system which utilizes exhaust fans and negative air pressure to dramatically limit the dust during the messy demolition phase of the project.
