Cabinets are Ordered, now what?
This is the fun part, you are done with the design, made all the decisions and approved your project for launch! But wait, there is a wait – for the cabinets to arrive. Lead times for cabinets can be as short as a few days (for stock cabinets) or as long at 12 weeks (for custom cabinets).
We track the delivery dates closely and will stay in touch with you during the… wait… We have a special article on what you can do during this period to better prepare for the kitchen remodel or bathroom remodel project to begin (see "Best Steps to Prepare for your Remodel…)
Cabinets ARRIVE! Time to begin the Project
Only after delivery of all materials, we will set the schedule for your project (or your contractor will). These materials do not include the countertop, which is measured and fabricated only after cabinets are installed. The schedule for your kitchen remodeling or bathroom remodeling project can get complex and includes the delivery, installation, finishing work and countertop measure and installation.
Deliveries are made directly to your home and we will provide delivery notifications as we are updated by the cabinet manufacturer. We provide convenient time window of the delivery for you with plenty of notice for you to maximize your day.
Sometimes, smaller packages start arriving ahead of the cabinets – that means we are almost there and it's time to get ready for the installation.
Kitchen remodeling or Bathroom remodeling Permits – a necessary step
Obtaining all necessary permits from local governments your kitchen remodeling or bathroom remodeling project can sometimes take a few weeks. Homes that are designated historical or homes built before 1978 (when lead paint was widely used) require special attention and may take longer.
Lead time for cabinets and appliances and the permitting process usually account for the wait periods. If stock cabinets are ordered, then the permitting process may take a major portion of the time. We remain in touch with updates on your order and you can always check in with your designer with any comments or questions.
