Working With Your Installer

What's the key to a smooth installation?

Preparation. If you've decided to hire 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.
