Complete Kitchens: What’s Included in an S&S Quote?June 7, 2021
Developing a quote for your remodel project can be a stressful and complicated process. Some contractors include only the base price of your cabinets and labour, and they wait until later in the process to add the cost of accessories like hinges, pulls, and knobs. This can be devastating for a tight remodeling budget, and it can keep you from investing in the fixtures you want.
At S&S Woodcraft, we make sure our quotes are comprehensive and transparent from the start of your project. We’re happy to walk you through your quote to be sure you understand what you’re getting for the price tag.
So, what all goes into an S&S quote? We’ll outline the various line items that make up your complete kitchen quote so you know what to expect ahead of your cabinet renovation.
Items in a Complete Kitchen Bid
A comprehensive kitchen quote is made up of detailed line items. Here are the most important items that will show up in your complete kitchen bid.
Cabinets are a large part of your quote, and they’ll usually be one of the most expensive elements on the list. Your cabinet quote will include the physical components of your cabinets, including:
- Boxes and frames
- Door faces
- Essential accessories
The quote will include all accessories that come standard with our cabinets, like soft-close hardware and a double bin trash/recycling station. We also carry a wide selection of handle and knob options, the cost of which is included in your cabinet quote. If you have particularly unique handles or knobs in mind that are not included in our showroom, we’re happy to source them for you, but there may be an additional cost.
Essentially, the cabinet quote includes all of the wood or composite pieces of your cabinet project, the finish option you choose (stain or paint), and several standard accessories.
Your countertop will have its own place in your bid. The initial quote will have a handful of different countertop brands that suit your budget and style preferences. The price will include the amount of your desired material, as well as any special finishes or modifications. Once you settle on a countertop material, you can come to our showroom to choose the specific color and pattern that you want for your space.
What Comes with Your Cabinets and Countertops
At S&S Woodcraft, we specialize in cabinets and countertops, but we offer some other kitchen fixtures, too. When you work with us, we’ll be able to provide materials and labour for most parts of your kitchen renovation. If there are upgrades that you’d like to make that we don’t provide, we can recommend a trusted partner to assist you.
In addition to cabinets and countertops, we also offer other kitchen products, including custom cabinet inserts, unique organization products, sinks, faucets, and more. When you begin to discuss your kitchen renovation with us, we’ll let you know ahead of time what we can provide and what will need to be outsourced or installed by another company.
Outsourcing Other Products
Though we have several different types of products available directly from our workshop, there are a few types of products you will need to seek independently. These include:
- Tile backsplashes
If you need recommendations for flooring or appliance installation, we would be happy to connect you to some of our trusted partners. We collaborate with a number of different contractors to help our customers get their dream kitchens!
Be Confident in Your Quote
Renovating your kitchen is an exciting project that most homeowners only do every 10 - 30 years. You should work with a contractor who will keep your joy alive with a complete, transparent quote that they actually stick to.
