Are you wrestling with the idea of remodeling for the holidays? There are only a few projects that you should consider. Since the holidays are busy times for both home owner and contractors, there is ample opportunity for delays, miscommunications, parts not showing up as ordered and other stressors. A home owner should only consider non-intrusive remodeling were the work is surface such as replacing a floor, countertops, new window shutters. These types of jobs require only a day or two of crews on site.
If your job requires multiple trades on the jobsite such as plumber, electrician, drywall, you are asking for trouble during the holidays. These guys all have to be scheduled, materials have to be available and on site to produce results in a timely fashion. Better to hold off on intrusive projects until January especially is you have to order materials such as sinks, faucets, or even cabinets. Don’t be fooled by promises of delivery especially from the big box stores. Every large company has downsized and is under staffed. And they are hiring cheaper unskilled workers at every opportunity. So the margin for error is up.
So shop early for Christmas, plan ahead, allows time for traffic. Plan a stress free holiday. If you wanted that new kitchen in by Christmas to impress the relatives at Christmas dinner, it may be too late. You may have time for pre-fab kitchen remodeling. That’s about it. Remodeling is already stressful for most people. Why add that to the stressful weeks ahead of planning for the holidays? You can always buy some trick faucets, wrap them up and give a presents too. Merry Christmas to all!!!
For those home owners who still want to rehab their kitchen for the holidays you might consider cabinet refinishing or cabinet refacing. With cabinet refinishing we refinish the existing cabinets. This gives your old worn out looking cabinets the look of brand new kitchen cabinets without changing the layout of the kitchen. Cabinet refacing is when we reface the cabinets with a wood looking venire. Cabinet refacing can also give your existing kitchen cabinets a new look without changing the layout of the kitchen. The cost of cabinet refacing is more than cabinet refinishing. Although it cost less than custom cabinets or pre-fabricated kitchen cabinets.
