Yes, TKR provides a free consultation and estimate. Once an appointment is scheduled, we will confirm the appointment in advance. The owner, Mark and in-house architect Sam will meet with you to discuss your needs and budget. Mark has a lifetime of construction experience and Sam is extremely creative artistically and prepares all of the necessary drawings for conceptual renderings for the client to visualize their project as well as architectural drawings for building purposes. We will then follow up with a free itemized estimate for most small to medium sized projects in a timely manner or a budgetary estimate for larger projects.
At the risk of sounding elusive, we really must say that “it depends.” The scope of the kitchen remodeling dictates how long the project will take. If you are removing a wall or two for example to open up the kitchen, which is a very common trend now, the actual construction will obviously take a little bit longer.
You can start by getting a good idea for the type of look and style you want. If you don’t know yet, look at some magazines, websites, or watch some home remodeling shows to get some design ideas. Then, contact us for a Free Design Consultation with a Remodeling Consultant. You will be instructed by your TKR Consultant as to what exact steps you need to take. But, generally speaking, before construction begins, you’ll want to clear out the area being worked on of all your personal belongings that can be removed. Although, we cover the areas surrounding our work area, you’ll want to protect your furniture from dust with plastic and/or sheets.
Realtor® Magazine reported that for the year 2005, the national average return on investment for kitchen remodeling is between 84.8% and 98.5% depending upon whether it is a major or minor project and whether the budget is upscale or moderate. However, in large metropolitan areas, the return ranged from 119.5% to 135%. So, many people will actually make a substantial profit on the money they invest in their kitchen.
Refinishing your cabinets is a great option if they are in good condition and you are happy with the existing cabinet configuration. The refinishing process that we do will make the refinished surfaces like new. It includes stripping and sanding with multiple coats of lacquer for a furniture quality finish. We typically only refinish the cabinet boxes, face frames, doors and drawer fronts. The interior of the cabinets is optional unless it is visible through glass or open shelving. We can usually convert surface mounted hinges to concealed, soft-close type for a nominal fee. Soft-close drawers can also be upgraded as well. Modifications need be minimal for this option to make sense. Counter top replacement is an option that makes sense. Refacing is only a viable option if you are keeping the same counter tops with no or minimal modifications to the existing cabinetry. Refacing is a very labor intensive process that includes replacing all of the existing doors and drawer fronts and an option of adhering new plywood over the existing cabinet boxes and face frames. There are many options in replacing the cabinets that include prefabricated cabinets as well as custom cabinets. Turn Key Remodel specializes in all of these options keeping your needs and budget in mind at all times to ensure you are aware of your options up front and all of the costs involved.
