I am a contractor which receives HA leads, most people do not even read the articals much less spend the time to find out the real project costs in our area and are shocked to find out the real costs which are of their possible investment ball parks.
For example, material that could be used in the wall that you are going to add-on to your house may have thought to have cost $4,000 by your home remodeling contractor, but if you found it at a considerably lower price then you may be able to save money in that area.
This estimate for a 2017 Kitchen Remodel is derived from the unit cost method summarized in the American Institute of Architects Detailed Cost Estimating – Best Practices This approach is used by professional designers, contractors, engineers and estimators and uses current wages, material costs, worker productivity benchmarks, supervisory overhead and markup rates.
You will also need to include the cost of having these professionally installed which can be on average a cost of $50 per hour for an experienced cabinetmaker, however this is an average and the cost can range from $45 per hour up to $55 per hour depending on labour, size of the kitchen and the materials the cabinets are made from.
