THE VALUE OF HAVING YOUR KITCHEN CABINET INSTALLER ALSO INSTALL THE COUNTERTOP
Our highly skilled cabinetmakers wanted to learn to install countertops for a variety of reasons that we believe ultimately benefit our clients.
- We can ensure that the major levelling of the cabinets is done properly from the bottom up. This means that there will be no unsightly gaps between the cabinets and the countertops due to uneven floors.
- We have noticed that approximately every 3 jobs out of 10 the removal of existing countertops ends up with damage to the cabinets that could be hidden by the offender and cause problems later (costing the homeowner extra to bring a cabinet company to repair the damage). However, when the countertop installer and cabinet maker are the same person, any necessary repairs can be made immediately, eliminating the need for finger-pointing and multiple contractors.
- When homeowners upgrade from laminate countertops to solid surfaces like quartz or granite, they may not realize that the installation of a perfectly leveled countertop can make previously aligned doors and drawers appear crooked. This is because the original installation was done to accommodate the unlevelled laminate top. Our cabinetmakers are trained to make the necessary adjustments to ensure a flawless finish.
- In addition to these technical reasons, having our cabinetmakers install the countertops also reduces the amount of time that a kitchen is out of commission during the renovation process. When multiple contractors are involved, scheduling conflicts can often cause unnecessary delays. By streamlining the process and having one team handle both tasks, we can ensure a smooth and speedy renovation experience for our clients.
In conclusion, while training our cabinetmakers to install countertops may seem like an unconventional choice, we believe that it ultimately benefits our clients in terms of quality, efficiency, knowledge and peace of mind.
