What increases the cost

Customers will ask me they like to have a white or Grey finish. Once they learn that there are six shades of white and grey. The price can increase by $200.00 to $300.00  on an average job. Some wood grain finishes fall into the same price point as other whites, greys and cream colours.

The one difference in some finishes is the surface texture. Looking at the surface closer you can see how one can have a rough  texture compared to another being smooth or satin. ,

Another price increase can result in different crown moulding sizes and colours. A crown moulding with a lot of detail can result in a higher price point.

Keep in mind, some jobs require more material which again can increase per linear cost to supply and install. 

Hardware upgrades such as soft close drawer tracks,handles and hinges can increase cost by $100.00 to $1000.00 this is only an estimate.

Remember always ask Questions. Paying for upgrades that you use every day is well worth the cost. That being your hinges.  

Another cost increase can result in your counter top selection. We will continue with this topic in an up coming page. 

Average Laminate Countertop Replacement Cost 2018

When selecting countertops, your first choice would laminate for affordability. It comes in a wide variety of colors and styles, many of which are created to look like granite, marble or other high-end materials. Many customer are surprised to see the variety of colours and textures that look like marble and granite. Keep in mind, it is best to see the whole laminate countertop then one small sample piece because of colour variation.   
  • Laminate countertop cost: $18-$45.00 per running foot. Supply only, not installed. 
  • Maintenance cost: Low
  • With my customers  I offer stock laminate colours. This keeps cost  down because you pay for what is used and not paying for over sized pieces which is usually sold by 8',10',12', lengths. For example  if you need a L shape countertop.  One piece  59" x 119"  You  pay for 15' not 18' (If it is special order) 

  Countertop installation cost is determined by the running foot price along with the number of finished ends or (Caps) mitre cuts, removal of the old countetop. haulaway of the old top and plumbing.

Some unexpected fees: 

The old  laminate top or tile top is constructed on a plywood surface then nailed down to the top of the cabinets. This will result in a higher price point for removal. If you are handy and have a few hours to spare try it yourself. 

These are a few points to consider and pricing does vary across the country.
