Who performs the installation of my Kitchen Saver refacing project?


Kitchen Saver only uses privately hired, W2 employees for our refacing projects. One of the most common struggles of homeowners looking to remodel their kitchen is the issue of subcontractors. Many kitchen remodeling companies subcontract their labor to third parties, leaving you to deal with two different companies at different stages of your renovation process. The worst part of this common practice is that should something go wrong with your project – the wrong materials are ordered, the installation is not completed on-time, or there is some kind of damage done in the installation process – these companies can pass blame to another party. And when no one takes responsibility for your situation, you are left with no help, an incomplete kitchen, and more money to spend. At Kitchen Saver, we do things differently. We hire and train all our own employees, from sales to installation. That means we take responsibility for every aspect of your kitchen remodeling process you entrust to us. You can rest assured your project will be taken care of to your exact specifications, because there’s no middle man. It’s all us.
