Working With Your Installer
What's the key to smooth cabinet installation?
Preparation. When hiring a professional installer, start asking friends and colleagues for referrals early in the planning stages. Your kitchen designer may have a short-list of recommended firms to offer as well. In addition to asking for bids, interview each installation firm asking questions like:
What's the size of their crew?
How many jobs will they manage simultaneously?
What's their process for working in an occupied residence?
Are they insured and properly licensed?
Will they employ any subcontractors? If yes, these should be approved by you.
Once an installer is selected, schedule a meeting between you, your designer and the installer to be sure that everyone is on the same page with regard to the project scope, dates, timelines and responsibilities.
