So you’re ready to remodel your kitchen?
We know that finding a kitchen remodeler can be daunting and stressful. To help you decide whether we’re the right remodelers for you we’ve put together this page to make your decision easier.
Before we tell you why you should (or shouldn’t) hire us let’s take a second to talk about how a kitchen remodel will impact your life for the next few months.
Living without your kitchen
Studies have found that the kitchen is often the most used room in the house. Whether or not this is true for you and your family, we can guarantee that living without a kitchen will disrupt your life. We’ve found that the best way to overcome and enjoy life without a kitchen is to: a) be realistic about the impact this change will have and b) try to find the fun in the experience whether that means grilling or eating out more often.
The effects on the rest of your house
A kitchen remodel requires a lot of power tools and people to complete. This will inevitably lead to dust and dirt, even with the most thorough contractors. We know first hand that it can be hard to deal with the mess, especially when you’re used to keeping a clean house. We’ve found the best solution is to accept that at least the area directly surrounding your kitchen will be dirtier than usual until the project is complete.
How long does it really take?
A typical full kitchen renovation (meaning cabinets, counters, appliances, etc.) usually takes at minimum two full months to complete. This time can vary greatly depending on the complexity of your project. We’ve found with our clients that the key to getting an accurate timeframe is to have a clear vision of what you’re trying to accomplish with your remodel. We know that visualizing your project can be challenging so here’s a free remodeling guide if you need it!
Now that you have an idea of what to expect (and hopefully still want to remodel your kitchen) let’s talk about whether we’d be a good fit for you.
Why you shouldn’t hire us
You just bought a Kitchen from Ikea and were hoping that we’d be able to help you install it this weekend.
Your having family come stay with you for the holidays (two weeks away) and it would be great if we could remodel that bathroom thats been leaking for the last 10 yrs in your 1920’s built colonial.
You’re looking for the cheapest possible option or the fastest option. We take pride in our craftsmanship and as such we don’t compete on price or time.
Why you should hire us
We’re more focused on quality than cutting corners to save costs. In the long run we believe that this approach will save you headache, money, and leave you with a superior end product.
You want personal customer service from the people responsible for completing your project. We’re a small team so more often then not if you have a question or concern you’ll be talking directly to me, Marcus the owner.
You want to work with an award-winning Design and Construction company recipient of the “Best of Houzz” award for five consecutive years in a row.
Still not sure if we’re right for you?
It’s ok we totally get it, this is a huge decision that will directly impact your life for the foreseeable future. It’s natural to be skeptical. Why don’t you check out what other people have to say about us?
MFM has finished a basement, remodeled a kitchen and our master bath. Their level of detail and expertise rises above many other contractor’s that we had interviewed. I would not use anyone else to do any other projects. Even long after the project is done, they have stood by their work and have been attentive to questions that we have had regarding products used. They have increased the value of our home tremendously!
When we first started talking they took notes and listened. Then they responded with additional suggestions and ideas. They worked with you. They may not be the cheapest, but they do a lot behind to wall to do the job correctly. When I walk into my kitchen it looks just as good as the day they finish. I have seen other kitchens done around the same time as mine by other contractors, and I am glade I didn’t use them. You can see the poor craftsmanship cracks it the walls and ceiling crown molding separating because they were calked. I don’t see any of that in my kitchen.
Never having lived through a major renovation in any of our previous homes, I can say without doubt that MFM was professional in every way from initial concept thru completion, and went beyond all our expectations in the re-design of our kitchen. We love it!
