Default Kitchen Renovation

Hi,

I am looking to get my kitchen completely renovated (floor tiles, cabinets, countertop, backsplash). Would anyone have recommendations on contractors / suppliers / cabinet makers / do-it-all companies?

Any advice is much appreciated.

Thanks.

Only advice I have is - DO NOT PAY UPFRONT. a friend of mine did and had her kitchen completely destroyed.

I have a friend in the cabinet industry and their recommendation was Deslaurier for quality, design and environmental awareness during cabinet production.

No one is going to do a cabinet order without a deposit to cover the custom cabinets.

You shouldn't have to pay for installation up front usually.

Deposit is fine or half but certainly not the entire amount up front. Some sketchy contractors might try to pull that trick.
