What You Need to Know Before Hiring a Kitchen Remodeling Contractor
When you think you’ve found the right kitchen remodeling contractor for your renovation project, it is important to validate the following information before you hire him.
- Look on the contractor’s website and check for their license number.
- Check they have the right license class (General B12) and that the license is active.
- Make sure that the contractor is bonded.
- Make sure that they have an active workers compensation insurance.
Although this information may seem difficult to find, it is quite simple. First, get the contractor’s number from the site, then go to the ‘Contractors State License Board’ website. Write in the license state number and perform a search. You can then validate the information.
What does Element Home Remodeling Oakland include in remodeling estimates?
Our remodeling estimates give the customer a detailed list of the scope of work involved in the project. This covers the design service and optional architectural plans (if required) as well as the costs of all rough materials and labor. It does not include the cost of finish materials because we prefer to give our customers full autonomy regarding the costs, style and type of materials used for the finish.
How long does a bathroom remodeling take?
Depending on the scope of work involved, a kitchen remodel can take between 1-3 weeks to complete. If a permit had to be obtained to carry out the remodel, then city/county inspections will need to be carried out at certain stages of the project. This can affect the project timeline depending on the availability of the inspectors to arrive at the site.
Is obtaining a permit required for a kitchen remodel?
If the scope of work involves any electrical work, plumbing work or changes in the layout or relocation of fixtures, then a permit will be required.
Note: If the scope of work involves only cosmetic changes to the kitchen, such as replacing fixtures and tiles, it is known as a Renovation Cosmetic Change Project and because it does not involve any plumbing, electrical or layout changes, it does not require a permit or inspections by the city.
The city fees for the permit range between $800-$1700, depending on the size of the project.
Part of Element’s service is to obtain the necessary permits, submit plans, schedule inspections and complete all the necessary paperwork required by the city or county.
How soon can we start working on your kitchen remodeling project?
Construction work on your project can begin within 1-2 weeks from when you sign the contract. However, if a permit is required, then work will commence within 1-2 weeks after receiving the permit from the city.
Can I Stay at home during the remodeling work?
Yes, you can. In fact, the majority of our customers continue to live on the property during the remodeling project. Our team will do their upmost to cause as little disruption as possible, and to ensure that both you and your family feel safe and comfortable throughout the remodel.
How do we communicate with our customers during the Kitchen remodeling process?
We believe that open communication is the key to a smooth and successful remodeling project. For this reason, as soon as the contract is signed, we open a group messaging system which includes all the team and office members involved in your project. This allows you to communicate with any team member on an open forum and receive updates in a timely manner. In addition, your assigned project manager, who is available 24/7 will visit the site each day to check the progress and provide you with current updates about the project.
