Planning For Your Kitchen and Bath Remodeling Project:

 

 

How To Get Started on Your Kitchens & Baths Remodeling Project:
 

  1. Put together pictures, notes and articles on styles and remodeling projects that interest you.

  2. Call a family meeting and ask everyone for their wish lists and input. This will ensure mom gets her appliance garage, dad gets an icemaker in the refrigerator and junior gets his candy drawer!

  3. Try to establish an investment amount--how much do you want to spend on your project?

  4. Call Southampton, Inc. to make an appointment @ (561) 687-0505.

  5. We will come to your home to discuss your project. (Have your scrapbook of design ideas ready!) We will present you with a packet of information (i.e. sample contract, referrals, & insurance certificates).

  6. In some cases we can create a ballpark estimate on the spot. More involved projects may require a scope of work and conceptual design. The ballpark estimate is free. There is a fee for scope of work and conceptual design.

  7. All decisions will be made and products approved by you, before we start work.

     

The Installation Process

  1. We will schedule and estimated start time frame based on our production schedule on the day you commit to us. A $1,000.00 retainer is due at this time to secure your project's start date.

  2. Our goal is to attend to your project everyday.

  3. The time frame for most kitchens is between 7-12 weeks. The time frame for bathroom remodeling projects is 4-8 weeks.

  4. Communication is key to a successful remodeling project. All employees have phone numbers to respond to and have e-mail with our office staff which works great.

     

Preparing for the Installation

  1. Choose a place in your home to set up a makeshift kitchen with a microwave.  Normally a bathroom or laundry room works well, due to the running water.

  2. Your refrigerator will be left plugged in somewhere convenient, but out of the way of the construction.

  3. Prepare some easily microwaveable meals and freeze them.

  4. Keep some cups, plates and utensils handy when you pack up your cabinets.

  5. Paper plates and plastic utensils are always a good idea too!

  6. Don't overlook the fact that you'll probably be eating out a lot during the remodeling. You may want to work this into your budget!

  7. Try to prepare for all of this disruption to your daily life process by focusing on the "prize"...Major improvement in your quality of life!
