Why you should beware a cheap quote
We all love a bargain, but when it comes to kitchen renovations, consider carefully if you receive a cheap quote.
Unscrupulous providers have various tricks to keep down the cost of new kitchens. They’ll put in more cupboards than drawers and include lower-quality materials and hardware.
The result? You get a less practical space that’ll annoy you over time and you’ll probably end up having to repair or replace those low-quality cabinets, surfaces or tiles – costing you more in the long run.
Then there’s customer service, which is so important in a project that typically lasts weeks and has tradesmen constantly coming in and out of your home.
You don’t want to be dealing with a company who might not turn up on time, does poor work and finds ways of charging more after the job starts to make up for the initial low quote.
My advice is always to focus on overall value. Sure, try to get the best price but don’t cut corners on quality and service.
