Countertop Installation Reviews in Carmichael


came in the spring to look at our job and give us an estimate. What I appreciated most in the bid and design process was that he was mindful of my budget constraints from the beginning. His desire was to give us the biggest bang for our buck in terms of balancing cost against benefit. When I suggested a change, he would give me an estimate and help me keep in perspective my budget. His suggestions always fit within what would be in our best interests and what could stretch the budget to include our needs. Along the way, as I added little tasks and decided to keep tearing down walls (kind of addictive once you get started :),
always gave me an estimate beforehand. For instance, when I decided to open up the family room doorway, he told me the cost before he started and pointed out that since he hadn't needed to move the gas line for the
, the overall budget wouldn't be affected. I learned to trust him implicitly. Just about the time I'd start thinking about where we were in the budget, he'd come in with an update and discuss payments made, material costs and what was projected to finish. Our final budget came in exactly on target. No surprises. He is honest and fair and has great personal and professional integrity.

As summer came and went, I began to fret about actually starting the project, but it was worth the wait. When his calendar cleared (which means he had faithfully finished work for his previous client), he began work. He called before he came on the first day, established a begin time that worked for our family (my husband works nights and sleeps days) and showed up every day, without fail, as predictable as the sun coming up.
and his employee,
, were quiet, unobtrusive and always pleasant. What I appreciated most was that he wasn't juggling other jobs, leaving us hanging with unfinished work for days and weeks at a time. He started and stayed with us until he was finished. I would easily make the trade for waiting a couple of months for a consistent and reliable project! In addition, he was thoughtful about the obstacles a remodel could have in disrupting our lives. Because he tried to keep as much function in the kitchen as he could, dovetailing his schedule deftly, I think there were only three days that my kitchen was unusable in a two month period.

is a perfectionist and really enjoys the problem solving aspect of a remodel. This is an especially important quality to have in an older home such as ours. When the electrical system presented mysteries, he approached it thoughtfully and doggedly until he figured out the issues and corrected them. Electrical problems that have plagued us for years have disappeared and we no longer attribute flickering lights to ghosts! When the window seat under our bay window continued to leak, he worked at it and tested it until he was sure he had the leak sealed and then created a beautiful and creative finish to what was previously an eyesore.

He is also resourceful. He reused all our baseboards, meticulously labeling each one to replace them seamlessly. He was able to take down crown molding where we removed portions of the wall and reuse it later to create an elegant finish, saving the cost of buying more material. He also used extra molding from the cabinets to finish the window seat
, which was a thrifty and aesthetically pleasing solution. When I decided to add a barn door to my kitchen/laundry room, he tackled the new material and mastered installation without breaking a sweat.

Finally, he is tidy. He picked up after himself, vacuumed up dust at the end of each day, and neatly stored tools and materials.

We really enjoyed our whole experience, not just the final outcome (how many people say that after a remodel?) and feel so fortunate to have found
on Angie's List. We miss him and
, now that they aren't here every day! Our dogs miss them too. Did I mention that he was incredibly patient with them and affectionate toward them? Come this spring (and tax return), we are looking forward to having
remodel our master bathroom. Now, when I look at my house and think of projects that I'd like to do, I know that they are doable and affordable because I know
and I know that I can count on him.

is always prompt and efficient. One of his gifts is problem solving. We would ask if something was possible and he would jokingly say, "No, but I will find a way to do it".
never left the job without cleaning up. Over the years he has returned to do additional projects. We have been so pleased with
's workmanship that we have had him do additional projects on our vacation house and at our daughters home.

See above. I paid him before I knew the floor wasn't completed. He told me that since that "under the refrigerator" couldn't be seen, there was no reason to do under it. I paid him the amount for the work. After he left, I went out into the garage and discovered he hadn't done under the door. I called him after I found out that the floor wasn't done under the door and told him I also wanted the job completed with the floor done under the refrigerator as I considered that was also the Kitchen floor. He said he was so busy and couldn't get back to me for at least a week.

I'm concerned because I already paid him and this might be the last of him. I hope you can get him to complete his contract as he should. He is very affable and convincing and that what throws the customer off. After he told me that he didn't do "UNDER THE REFRIGERATOR", I thought it over and was concerned that he should take that stand; after all, UNDER THE REFRIGERATOR, was part of the Kitchen floor and shouldn't be ignored. Also, "UNDER THE KITCHEN DOOR" is also part of the Kitchen floor.

I hope that you can convince him that he has not completed his contract and should finish the job

Thank you,

The job turned out to be more complicated than we could have anticipated and
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
really stepped up to the plate. You never know what you are going to uncover when remodeling and these installers were real problem- solvers. Additionally, because they have a team of skilled pro's, within a short period of time an electrician on the team showed up and was able to fix the problem so I had my new countertop and cooktop up within hours.
Additionally, all communication to the owner who had bid the job was smooth and easy. Emails were quickly answered.
This company was a joy to deal with.

Punctuality :

" showed up to the inital meeting on time, at which point the new kitchen was installed and the double

of plywood had also been installed since I was looking to put an double thick

on the countertop. I paid the master carpenter to attend as well, so we could review the features of the kitchen, answer an questions and it was stressed the double thickness of the plywood underlay.
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
even commented about the high quality of the plywood used. Another meeting was scheduled to meet to sign the contract with
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
at KDC outlet in the Filco store..
I arrived at KDC outlet slight early, and waited ... and waited ... and waited. After about 25 mins, I gave up and as I was walking out to my car I saw
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
loading cabinets into a truck and getting ready to drive off. I approached her about the meeting and got her to let me sign the contract and give them money. Never had to chase a vendor down to give them money before.
One of the reasons that I went with KDC was the promise of a 7 day turn around. I reconfirmed this several times that they would deliver 7 calendar days after templating. When the day of installation came, I had arranged for the master carpeter and the electian to be onsite to deal with any problems, adjustment and do ensure the cuts made for the cooktop were correct.
No granite.

failed to tell me that the granite was delayed a day, no explanation provided. When it did arrive on the 8th day, there was an error with the
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
and it had to be taken back to the shop have the
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
redone. I could not get a date when the granite would be corrected and returned for installation. The granite installers returned six days later, with no warning. There was no one at the resident to facilate the installation, so it had to be delayed until the next day.

Pricing :
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
had been to my home and personally inspected and measured the countertops, and I selected a product from her outlet, she provided me with pricing. I signed the contract and made the 50% initial payment. Later that day I was told by
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
that I had been overpriced and that balance would be several hundred dollars less than the 50%.
When the counters were being templated by
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
's employee, I had the master carpenter and the general carpenter, as well as myself at the house and we pointed out the double thickness of the plywood and that the counter tops needed a double wide
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
. This was the same feature we had pointed out to
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
during her initial visit. After the templater left, I received a call from
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
that the double wide
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
would cost more than the quote she had given me. She could not explain why the quote did not originally include a double wide
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
since that was feature that was pointed out to her during her visit. Her defense was to remind me that I had a credit coming.
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
emailed me a contract revision with the full price of the double wide bull nose for "the order" and reminded me that I would be getting a credit from the original order. I agreed to the price increase.
After agreeing to the price increase, assuming that the original order has a credit, I was informed that
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
was in error about the overpricing on the base order and that I would not be getting a credit.
When the product arrived, only the island had the double
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
, the kitchen counters had a single
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
, would would leave a 1/2 of plywood showing. When I contacted
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
regarding the error, she claimed that the change order was only for the island. There was nothing in the change order that limited the change to the island and why would only the island get the double wide
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
, when the entire kitchen had been built with the double thick plywood underlay.
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
would not honor the contact and insisted on yet ANOTHER price increase.
Fortunately, for
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
, it had been a long renovation and I just wanted the kitchen finished, so I paid the increase. KDC and
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
pricing practices are fraudulent and unethical. If a business creates a contract with a customer, and they make an error in their pricing, it's the businesses problem ... they have to absorb the loss.

I contacted Kitchenmart to complete a remodel of a master bedroom ensuite bath. Although the experience had a few side steps during the implementation, I reached out to Kitchenmart senior leadership by sending my concerns to the owner/president. The owner/president Mr.
Carmichael Countertop Installers Provider Name Locked
welcomed the feedback, got involved, and the issues were addressed and my project was finish to my satisfaction!
Over the past year, I have done a house wide renovation, it's given me a lot of experience with contractors and renovations. We all wish every project goes without issue, but renovations are complex and problems often come up. It comes down to contractors that are willing to work with you on the quality and issues that may arise with the project. Kitchenmart differentiates itself from many other contractors in their willingness to work with the customer. I highly recommend the Kitchenmart experience.
