Our clients often ask what the remodeling process will be like.
In the spirit of honesty, though we make it as quick and painless as possible, it's not a fun process. Kitchens are one of the largest and most expensive remodeling projects in your home. It can be an overwhelming process and there are a lot of moving parts to consider along with several material choices to make with only one chance to get it right. Making mistakes with special order items like cabinetry and countertops can be very costly and time consuming. This is why working with us can make the process so much easier and less stressful with more piece of mind.
Another consideration is that, unlike bathroom remodeling, most folks only have one kitchen and it can be a bit of a burden being without it for weeks to months. However, we find that it's not too difficult to endure. We're always happy to move appliances and help you set up a make-shift kitchen for the time being. Plus, on the bright side, it gives you a chance to sample the local fare, eat at that place you've been meaning to check out or become a next level grill master!
Though not as inexpensive as other smaller, less in-depth projects, Kitchen remodels are rated among the absolute best home improvement projects one can do in terms of return on investment, as well as, personal enjoyment.

Kitchen remodels can be a major investment of time and money, but done properly, they’ll create a space that looks great and functions well for years to come.

This is the sky’s-the-limit phase. Now is the time to consider decorating styles and dream about which fixtures and materials you’d choose if money were no object. Page through decorating magazines, watch home improvement programs, and surf the internet for inspiration or we can help you organize your ideas. Virtual mood boards can be created using Pinterest or by creating online favorites list! You can share your ideas with us online and we can help you bring it all together.
Selecting materials and finishes is where you have the most control with overall costs. Using your inspiration boards as a starting point, we can help you establish your budget to determine which materials and products are realistic, and where compromises may have to be made.
With your wish list and budget in hand, call on us to take care of the rest. Take time to check our references, review our before/after photos from previous jobs, and see if we're the right fit for you and we can get the process started.
In order to make the project run smoothly, we have all of your flooring, cabinetry, lighting, sinks, faucets, and appliances ordered or in-hand before demolition begins. We work with you to ensure that the products you choose will work in the space and that the right plumbing and electrical connections are in place. We can also keep you abreast of the project timeline so you know where we are throughout each phase. Hancock Kitchen and Bath project experts can help you choose products based on your style and needs. We set up and handle all of the delivery schedules for you so things arrive when we need them and you don't have to worry with inspecting, handling returns or storing the items.
Demolition is a messy, time-consuming and potentially dangerous job. Without the proper knowhow, it’s easy to cause damage to walls, floors, plumbing, and electrical connections. Exposed nails, splintered wood, and falling objects are all potential risks for injury. Done correctly, DIY demolition can save money, but we prefer to leave this work to our pros as they know what the plan is from start to finish and can set themselves up for success in this early stage.
For a flawless finished project, your flooring needs a sound, smooth, dry, and level surface to rest on. An irregular surface can affect the look of hardwood and cause tiles to crack. Before and after demolition, we inspect the existing subfloor for soft spots, dampness, pits and cracks. We replace spongy or deteriorated sections, patch small cracks, and check for level. We address any dampness by making sure it isn’t caused by leaks, then install a moisture barrier where needed. We advise you which materials are best for the flooring you’re installing. This is also a good time to address any floor squeaks. The fix can be as simple as adding another screw or two to secure the subfloor to the floor joists below or as costly as replacing the entire floor system. Nonetheless you can't build on a bad foundation so it will need to be addressed beforehand.
If your new design calls for new walls to be erected, now is the time to frame them in.
Demoing your kitchen down to the studs provides the perfect opportunity to move plumbing or add electrical outlets. Easy access will also make it convenient for you to update outdated pipes and wiring.
Priming and painting the walls and ceiling before cabinets and flooring go in makes the job go quickly and eliminates the worry of paint drips on expensive finishes. Any dings or scratches that occur during installation can easily be touched up later.
If, however, you are going with wallpaper or wallcoverings, we will advise you to wait until after your cabinets are installed. This is because wallpaper cannot be touched up as easily as paint if it should get damaged in the process of cabinet installation.
Step 10: Install the Countertops, Sink, Faucet, and Cabinet Hardware
You’re in the home stretch! Once the countertops, sink, and faucet are in, your construction zone will start to look like a kitchen again. Installing the cabinet hardware will add the finishing touch.
Step 12: Touch Up Paint
If any damage occurred while installing cabinets, countertops, or flooring, this is the time to patch drywall and touch up the paint.
Step 13: Install
Our careful planning at the beginning of your project will mean the appliances are delivered just before they’re ready to be put in place.
Step 14: Light Fixtures,
Accessories, and Decor
With the cabinets, flooring, and appliances in place, we will be able to make quick work of installing the light fixtures. Then, all that’s left is to hang pot racks, wall art, decorative accessories and all the other things that will make your new kitchen look great and function perfectly.
