5 Questions To Ask Your Kitchen Renovation CompanyBlogAdmin2Wednesday, Nov 11, 2020
Deciding whether you should replace or reface your cabinet doors, the type of kitchen floors you want to install and other kitchen renovation options can be tricky.
1. What are my design choices?
When you get a free estimate from Home Reno Direct, we will go through our various design choices with you. That way you can visualize your new kitchen in your own space. You will be able to customize your cabinets, countertops, flooring, and so much more.
2. Am I located in your service area?
Not every contractor will travel across the Greater Toronto Area. Many have travel time restrictions. At HomeReno Direct, we try to keep our service area around the Greater Toronto Area. That includes Toronto, Mississauga, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Markham, Brampton, Oakville, Milton and Burlington.
We found that keeping projects to a limited area means a faster response time. Being close to your home means better customer service since you do not have to wait for hours for us to arrive after calling.
3. Will my kitchen be fully out of commission?
In most cases, you will still be able to use some of your kitchen appliances. We will work with you to make sure your kitchen renovation does not disrupt your life for too long. Your kitchen is likely the hub of your home, which is why we always factor that into renovation plans.
4. Can you trust the people working in your home?
Home Reno Direct carefully vets everyone who works on your kitchen. Be sure anyone you consider can offer the same assurance. Treat initial meetings and phone calls with prospective contractors like a first date. Consider whether you would want to see that person and their staff daily for two to six months. They will be in your personal space every day, which can make you and your family irritable over time if you do not have a good relationship with your contractor.
5. What are the most overlooked aspects of the project?
Many people don’t realize they need permits to meet building codes for home remodelling projects. But, don’t worry — our project coordinators take care of all of that for you.
Make sure to have a conversation on the phone instead of through email. You need to feel assured that both of your personalities fit well. Email does not give you an idea of how that individual will be like in-person. Make sure to have a frank, honest conversation. By the end of the call, you should feel assured that your kitchen is in knowledgeable and experienced hands.
