If you’re looking for kitchen and/or bathroom cabinet installation in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Summerlin, or Henderson, we’d love the opportunity to work with you.
Keep reading to learn the following:
When you’re remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, it’s common to get your designs and materials from either a designer or a home improvement store.
This will usually include the cabinets themselves (the “boxes”, plus the doors and drawers), crown molding of varying heights to finish off the look of the cabinets (this can be anywhere from an inch or more, and even extend to the ceiling in some cases), toe kick (basically what your toes would kick under the cabinet if you slid your foot forward), fillers to cover any seams between cabinets and walls, knobs or “pulls” of your choice, optional panels for things like the side of an island, and shelving for inside the cabinets.
Wherever you get your cabinets from, they will often offer installation services, but rarely do they do the work themselves.
Your kitchen and bathroom cabinet installation will almost always be hired out to a third party installer of their choosing, not yours.
This can create a lot of problems.
Sadly, my industry is saturated with cabinet installers who just don’t do the quality of work you deserve. Here’s what we’re often hired to come in and fix:
I pride myself on a company that is known for doing things differently than all the nightmare contractors you’ve probably heard of (or had the misfortune to work with yourself - let me apologize on behalf of the industry).
But most importantly, we are experts in the field of Finish Carpentry.
Meaning you don’t just get it done right; you get it done PERFECTLY and the FIRST time, saving you not only frustrations, but also time and money.
Wondering what the process looks like, from bid to completion?
First, if you’re using a designer, general contractor (GC), or home improvement store, ask if they contract with Wagner Installations already. We contract with many top notch cabinet designers, GCs and suppliers around the Las Vegas valley. If not, inform them that you’re going to be calling around for installers and not to book their own yet.
Next, you can give us a call or send an email. I’ll go over your project with you by phone to get a rough idea of what you’re wanting to create in your home or business. I’ll ask you some questions to make sure we're the right people for your job, and answer any you have as well.
Then I’ll use any measurements you can give me (even rough ones), as well as any photos or other info you might have, to give you a ballpark of what your project would likely cost, barring anything I can’t see over the phone. If you’d like me to get in touch with your designer or cabinet supplier, this can often be arranged (home improvement stores are the least accommodating).
If that initial ballpark figure sounds good to you, our next step will be to schedule a time to come out to you to get exact measurements and discuss any options with you. I will look for any potential design elements we need to address with your designer, can answer any further questions you have, and use these details to get you an exact cost for your kitchen or cabinet installation project.
Your final bid is guaranteed for 60 days and is exactly what you pay, not a penny more (unless there are major changes or additions to the project).
Meaning you’ll know exactly what to budget for your project and won’t get hustled for more.
From there, you (or your designer, depending on how they operate) can make a deposit which will allow me to get your kitchen or bathroom cabinet install on our schedule (with input from your cabinet supplier) and prioritize it above others that might come in, should you need to reschedule.
When we start the job, we will give you start and end times each day, we will notify your neighbors of how to let us know if there are any issues (like parking or debris that the wind carries into their yard), and I and my small but highly experienced crew will arrive on time to install your kitchen and/or bathroom cabinets to perfection.
We set up our tools outside and get started on your project right away. If we encounter any decisions or concerns, we'll let you know immediately and help you through the decision-making process with expert perspectives.
How long your kitchen or bathroom installation will take will vary based on the size of your project and how many are in our crew. To give you an idea of what to expect:
We will give you a unique time estimate for your own cabinet installation project when we submit your final bid. (I like to overestimate this so that you're never left waiting on us, but we’re done ahead of schedule 99% of the time.)
We will then complete the following:
We don’t do the electrical, countertops, plumbing, etc. (Those require speciality licensed experts themselves, but we can offer referrals to businesses we have enjoyed working with if you need them.)
Once the job is complete, we'll do a final walkthrough with you to get your approval and make sure you love everything. The remainder of your invoice is due upon completion of the job.
From there you’ll be able to have your countertops installed by your favorite countertop experts.
This is up to you, your budget, and the work you'd like done (vs done yourself), but here’s what we can include:
Important: We do not supply the cabinets themselves, nor do we paint or reface cabinets, but can refer you to our favorite expert designers. We only refer the best, because we want your job to go as seamlessly as possible.
*Although we’re obviously extremely careful, accidents do happen when moving furniture and we are not liable for damage done. It also saves you money if you prefer to do this yourself.
Wherever you choose to get your cabinets we can help you install them, but there are a few places we recommend to make your experience and final outcome the best possible.
Remember that not all cabinets are created equally:
If you’re a home improvement buff, it’s common to go to places like Lowe’s, Home Depot, or IKEA for your cabinets, especially with their free design services. They have some good brands of cabinets and some not so good brands, so I’d recommend investing in the higher price cabinets they offer (you really do get what you pay for), but definitely skip their installation.
Also be sure your cabinet order includes not just cabinets and doors, but toe kick, crown molding that fits your space (for upper cabinets), pulls (handles), fillers, and touch up paint for normal nicks that happen between the warehouse and the final install.
You can also go to independent designers. They will generally cost more but will also use the highest quality of cabinets, can ensure the best design possible for your space, and overall give you a better experience and level of customer support. This is definitely the route to go if you want the least amount of work or headache possible on your end.
A few of our favorite places to work with for cabinets and design are:
We don’t charge differently based on the designer or company you work with, but the quality of cabinets can change the type of work we need to do to make sure your cabinets are secure and perfectly installed. (More on that below.)
The cost to install your kitchen and/or bathroom cabinets depend on several variables:
We don’t charge more to install based on the brand of cabinet, except when we need to do custom work to ensure it can be secured safely (sometimes this is the case with lower quality cabinets that will have a heavy load on them). We do not supply any cabinet materials, outside the tools and installation materials (screws, nails, etc).
So the cabinet price will come down to the estimates you receive from your designer.
