There’s a lot involved with a home renovation intended to transform its interior appearance, improve its usability, and enhance its value, so choosing the right company for the job is essential if your renovation project is to tick all your boxes.
Kitchen, bathroom and laundry renovations have many benefits for homeowners, from living in a home designed with your individual lifestyle in mind to making it a safer place for your family and enhancing its monetary value.
However, you’ll only enjoy these benefits and more if you choose the right cabinetry team, one which will complete it to the highest standards, on time, on budget and deliver true value for money. Here are a few qualities to look for when sourcing a local cabinetmaker.
Are They QBCC Licenced and Fully Insured?
Ensuring the company you’re dealing with is licenced through the QBCC is essential. The Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) is the statutory authority which regulates the building industry in Queensland and is responsible for licencing tradespeople. To ensure the cabinetmakers who’ll carry out your renovation project are legit and that you have access to help and assistance if anything went wrong, ensure they’re QBCC licenced.
In addition to QBCC licencing, you should also ensure the cabinetmakers you choose for your project are fully insured, which is a requirement for all businesses and tradespeople. While it’s unlikely that an incident would happen, if an accident was to occur or something in your home was broken during the renovation, an insurance claim would need to be made.
It isn’t something anyone likes to think about, but it’s better to be safe than sorry where insurance matters are concerned. For your assurances with our kitchen, bathroom, laundry and wardrobe cabinetry services, Craftsmen Kitchens is QBCC licenced and fully insured.
Do They Have References and a Portfolio?
Do the cabinetmakers you’re considering display photos of their recent works on their website? Can they show you examples of their completed projects or provide references from happy customers? Before deciding on a service provider, take the time to get a feel for their work and the customer experiences they provide. This is important as you’ll need to work closely with the cabinetmakers throughout the project, especially at the design stage.
At Craftsmen Kitchens, we’ve been servicing the Gympie community for over 30 years and pride ourselves on delivering great customer experiences and outstanding work. You can rely on our experienced cabinetmakers to get the job done right, on time and on budget.
Custom-Made or Modular/Flat Pack Products?
Some kitchen renovation providers use imported flat packs which often don’t meet our stringent Australian standards. Whether you’re renovating the kitchen, the bathroom, laundry or installing new built-in wardrobes in the bedroom, insisting on custom-made products that meet the latest Australian standards ensures you’re getting quality products.
Along with quality, when you insist on custom-made kitchen, bathroom laundry furniture and wardrobe, you’re getting cabinetry that’s bespoke designed for your home and its unique spaces, as well as your household and your family’s unique needs.
Australian homes and households are unique in many ways so there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for a kitchen or bathroom reno project, which is why custom-made products are the best choice. Why take any chances with modular cabinetry which may not fit your space or meet Australian standards when you can have custom-made cabinetry at the same price?
