If you happen to be buying your new kitchen from a company like Homebase, Wickes or B&Q, you will almost certainly be offered a fitting service, and naturally at an additional cost. This can often be a bit of a surprise (especially if you'd already got a price in your head), since there is a substantial mark-up on this kind of service, and it is likely to be twice as much as you were expecting. The installers will only be paid roughly 50 percent of this and the remainder will be extra profit of the company involved.

There are of course certain advantages to using these (sub-contracted) fitting services. They save you having to spend time your own fitter, there are certain guarantees included, and any problems occurring with the installation should be resolved or compensated for. However, as a company like Homebase will likely be using local kitchen installers from close to Old Catton anyway, there is no real reason why you can't just book such services directly, and cut the bill in half. Furthermore, any genuine Old Catton kitchen installer will offer an aftercare service should any issues occur, and they're likely to be more approachable than trudging through a large company's complaints system which is often woefully "clunky" and sluggish.

When buying fitted kitchens from some of these bigger companies, you should be aware that several problems quite often crop up, and some firms are well known for this. They're renowned for delivering incorrect packages, not delivering everything in your order and having parts, fixtures and fittings missing from individual cartons. It's normal for fitted kitchens to arrive in flat-pack cartons, especially when ordered from DIY chains, and to save inconvenient and costly hold-ups to the installation process, you will want to check that everything is delivered correctly, and that each box is present and containing the right components.

Due to all these issues, and others I won't mention at this point, a lot of kitchen installers in Old Catton won't work for such companies, and aren't even all that happy about fitting kitchens that have been supplied by them. So, before going too far ask around and get some feedback. Having said that, some of the kitchens from these sources are of decent quality and usually incredibly good value, and when fitted professionally should last for many years.

When you're searching for a decent kitchen fitter you could consider asking friends or acquaintances for a recommendation, particularly if any of them have had kitchen installation or remodelling work done recently. Word of mouth tells if a task was done properly, and comes from somebody who you trust to be honest and truthful. To find out what it's going to cost you should get at least 3 or 4 quotations from your shortlist of prospective kitchen installation companies.

Most kitchen fitters in Old Catton will be happy to offer you a free home survey where they'll precisely measure your space, discuss materials, colour schemes, layouts and cabinet designs, and draft a detailed plan of your kitchen. By working from this plan and according to the choices you have made, they will be able to give you an itemised estimate for your kitchen, and a time scale for the completion of the work. If you're comfortable about measuring yourself, you can jot down your own layout and take it into a nearby Magnet or B&Q, where they will work everything out on their kitchen software program, if you prefer to go down that route.

Although it isn't essential for a kitchen installer to have served an apprenticeship, most of the best ones will have made the effort to do so, and their experience will probably be in carpentry & joinery, where they will have acquired all the skills that are needed for kitchen installation work. They'll be confident in the use of a wide selection of electric and hand tools, and will duly employ these to remove your tired and dreary old kitchen and replace it with a fresh new one that you and your family can use and enjoy for many years to come.

When your unwanted kitchen cabinets are being removed there's a pretty good likelihood that some supplemental work will emerge that was not seen at the design and planning stage. Long neglected floors and walls behind and under the old kitchen units will have been covered up for quite a few years on account of the time that's passed since they were fitted. There will probably be sections that the kitchen fitter really should straighten out to be sure your new kitchen will endure for as long as you like the design.

With luck you will discover that your kitchen installer is a member of the Gas Safe Register, meaning he is qualified to mend or replace gas cooking appliances and gas ovens, but if not then he should bring in a registered Gas Safe plumbing engineer to complete that work for you.

Whether the new floor surface is going to be timber, ceramic tiles, engineered wood, vinyl, laminate or natural stone, your Old Catton kitchen installer will probably be able to do that task for you, however you may plan to use a flooring specialist in this instance.

In most cases, kitchen fitters or kitchen installation companies in Old Catton will have a "sparky" who works alongside them, when electrical work is required, seeing as kitchen fitters have typically trained as carpenters and joiners, and will have only dabbled in basic plumbing and electrics to expand their abilities.

You ought to ask about the electrical side of things when survey and quotation is being prepared, since "sparkys" don't come cheap and you will need to allow additional cash for the electrics.

Dependent on the design and layout of your kitchen you may need quite a bit of electrical work doing, and this is now covered by part P of the building regs. Such things as light fittings, light switches, extra power outlets, underfloor heating and isolation switches, could be the type of electrical installations that you'll need.

Old Catton Skip Hire Services

Regular household wheelie bins are great when it comes to getting rid of your everyday waste, but for projects like kitchen installation in Old Catton, and other garden and home improvements, they are simply not suitable for the rubbish and waste that is generated. Local authority legislation may even state that any garden or construction waste that is created has to be disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way. In order to safely stay within the law, this means that your local council tip, or some alternative authorised disposal and recycling centre is going to be the only legitimate place to dispose of this waste. It is best to look for skip hire in your area, if you do not wish to be lugging waste back and forth to your nearby Domestic Recycling Centre.

Skip Hire Old Catton

By utilising a reliable skip hire company in Old Catton, you will be given assurances that all of your waste will be delivered to a certified facility, and will be disposed of properly and safely. You will need to discuss your kitchen project with your kitchen fitter and the skip hire provider and depending on what waste materials are likely to be created there may be provisos. The skip hire company might have to use a totally separate disposal system, in particular where dangerous asbestos waste is involved.

Hazardous waste is covered by strict guidelines, and the pros are the best folks to deal with the disposal of this. Working closely together, the skip hire provider and your kitchen fitter will ensure all the rules and legislations are correctly dealt with.

If your garden or drive has a space where a skip could be sited, then you should not have any issues. However, if you have parking on the main road or no suitable garden area you could chat with your neighbours and ask whether they can leave a suitable space as close to the work area as possible. If your skip is to be positioned on a main road in Old Catton a temporary permit or licence will be required from your local authority, and your skip must be lit and signposted. To determine whether you need one or not - ask your local authority. You can then rest assured that there will be no issues with the positioning of the skip.

There are several sizes and shapes of skip that it is possible to hire in and around Old Catton, with anything from mini-skips and skip bags up to enormous roll-on, roll-off (RoRo) skips and builders skips. To hire a skip for your kitchen installation project in Old Catton, CLICK HERE for a quote.
