WHY HIRE US?
IKEA kitchens and wardrobes are designed around the "frameless" concept that is the industry standard for Europe. Many local installers are unfamiliar with this type of cabinetry and approach the installation process with a "how hard can it be" attitude. Most North American cabinets are preassembled "face-frame" cabinets and most installers only have experience with this type of installation. Here at Somerset west we know the Ins and Outs of frameless cabinetry. We will install your cabinets according to manufacturer's instructions which are the only way to install it right . As a fully licensed and insured General contractor, you can expect only the highset standards of workmenship and professionalism.
HOW MUCH WILL MY PROJECT COST?
It is very difficult to estimate the actual cost of a complete remodel or installation. To estimate your cost we will need a detailed design, item list, and/or an on-site visit. E-mail us or give us a call (818 730 6672). Once we have received the information we will give you a good idea of your cost.
WHAT AREAS DO YOU SERVE?
At this time we serve the following territories
Los Angeles County, (IKEA Burbank store)
San Gabriel Valley IKEA Covina store
We are increasing our service area constantly, so please give us a call if you feel we could service your area.
HOW MUCH WILL MY CABINET INSTALLATION COST?
We offer competitive pricing. To accurately estimate your cost we will need a detailed design, item list, and/or an on-site visit. Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or give us a call (818 730 6672). Once we have received the information we will give you a good idea of your cost.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO INSTALL MY CABINETS?
A wardrobe installation can take between several hours to several days depending on the complexity of the installation. A kitchen installation can take between 1 day to several days depending on size and services included. A full project which may include demolition, plumbing, drywall and electrical work might take up to 7 days or more.
I WANT TO SAVE SOME MONEY. HOW MUCH OF THE WORK CAN I DO MYSELF?
If you are acting as your own project manager or "general contractor" you need to be ready for the challenges any large project can hold. Be sure you have completed all of your planning in advance. It is very important that work is performed in the correct order. Have all of your structural, electrical and plumbing completed, including any preparation for fixtures (like recessed lighting, sinks etc.), before you do the drywall. Sound obvious? It is if you have the right experience.
SHOULD I DO MY OWN ASSEMBLY AND LET SOMERSET WEST DO THE INSTALLATION? WON'T I SAVE MONEY THAT WAY?
Somerset West does not recommend an "assembly only" or an "installation only" service. We are very particular about how the cabinets are assembled as the strength of the frames is based on proper assembly. We know what we are doing and strive for only the highest standard of installation. We have visited countless job sites where the repair costs alone amounted to what the initial cost should have been. Countless installations make perfect! We do not say all of this to sell you more services (although admittedly that is what happens when we assemble and install). We find our customer satisfaction levels (which we measure) are higher when we perform both services.
DO I NEED PROFESSIONAL MEASUREMENTS AND DESIGN BEFORE I GET STARTED?
A successful project begins with a great plan and a design that fits the space. Coming up with a detailed plan for your kitchen or wardrobe project can be a challenge - We can help! In designing a layout, there are general guidelines but there is not one design that fits all. Our unique planning and measurement program will accurately provide you with detailed drawing, dimensions and an Itemized parts list. Our service is fast, efficient and inexpensive. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of our planning services. This will provide accurate measurements that account for room dimension, electric outlets, water lines and drain pipes, filler pieces, ceiling height, windows, doors and more. This simple and inexpensive service will give you peace of mind and could prevent costly mistakes.
