Why it Pays to Hire a General Contractor for a Kitchen Remodel

If you’re itching to remodel your kitchen, you’ve likely been browsing the internet for the latest type of countertop, cabinet style, paint color, or backsplash, but may not realize the full extent that goes into a kitchen remodel.  While some homeowners attempt to do it all on their own, in many cases it pays to work with a licensed general contractor like Prince & Sons, Inc. to help navigate the often complex process involved in almost any home renovation.

What Does a General Contractor Bring to the Table?

When it comes to a kitchen remodel, a general contractor brings the necessary experience, as well as all applicable licenses and knowledge about local building permits and inspection processes. Most residential general contractors that have been in business for any number of years will have a wide range of ideas to offer when it comes to your kitchen renovation.

Why Hire a General Contractor for Your Kitchen Remodel?

There are a whole host of reasons why it makes sense to hire a general contractor to oversee a kitchen renovation, a few of which include:

  • Navigate local permitting issues – You may think that you can get by without pulling permits for your home renovation, but the reality is that if you ever go to sell your home you could be looking at big problems.
  • Network of local designers – At Prince & Sons, one of the most common concerns of our clients is how to properly design their new kitchen. We have a network of local designers that we work with on a regular basis that can be brought in at a reasonable fee to generate designs that match the style of a client’s home.
  • High quality materials at reasonable prices – At Prince & Sons, we’re authorized Jim Bishop Cabinet dealers which allows us to provide our clients with high quality cabinets at reasonable prices. The quality of these cabinets are a step above the standard cabinets you’ll see at all of the major box stores.
  • Help to stay on schedule and on budget – Part of a general contractor’s job is to stay on budget and on schedule. Homeowners who attempt to do these types of kitchen renovation projects on their own will often underestimate the time and resources required, often resulting in an unsatisfactory finished product.
