"Dear Thumbtack: I gladly will tell you about my fabulous experience with SCANDIA CABINETS. Products are beautiful and Perfect for me! Late in the year, 2016, I telephone Scandia Cabinets and spoke with Sean. Sean was very helpful in giving me ideas and immediately offered to schedule an appointment to come over and see my kitchen. My existing kitchen was very-dated and old fashioned-looking. As soon as my schedule would permit, Sean came over to see what I had to work with. He took measurements and presented me some ideas, he was extremely informative and forward-thinking in his ideas for my remodel. The first thing Sean suggested was to 'open up my kitchen' to bring in more light as it was very dark in its existing layout. Sean went on to show me different types of woods, finishes and hardware choices; explaining how each type of wood would look, what it would take to maintain and how much they varied in cost and quality. So, together, we set up a design plan. The demo to start this project was quick, painless and the demo timed perfectly with the cabinets being ready for installation--on time! Sean was able to listen to my desire and develop a design plan that exceeded my desires; and a plan more beautiful than what I would have come up by myself. Sean brought many wonderful ideas to the table which we further developed and finally chose and implemented. When the cabinets arrived, and were finally put in on time, I could not believe how modern and stunning my kitchen had become. Friends came over and could not believe what a difference the cabinets made in remodeling. My kitchen and the entire upgrade made a difference in my entire home. I cannot say enough thanks and appreciation for the professional, timely and cost efficient work that Sean performed. I would recommend to anyone without reservation. Darcy Chambers San Diego"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to have kitchen cabinets installed?

In any kitchen, the cabinets are the main focus, so you want to make sure new or replacement cabinets are installed correctly. A professional carpenter can properly, securely mount new cabinets to the wall; the national average cost for this service is $7,725, although the cost varies widely depending on the type of cabinets, their material and their size, and the accessories you add. A typical fee is $70 per linear foot to remove existing cabinets and assemble and install new ones; the cost is less if you do the demolition and removal yourself. Stock cabinets are the least expensive to have installed, ranging from $75 to $400 each; semi-custom cabinets range from $150 to $900 each; and custom cabinets cost from $500 to $1,400 each. Wood cabinets are more expensive than those made from plywood or medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and finished with a laminate. Wood cabinets range in cost from $80 to $160 per linear foot. Laminate-finished cabinets cost $35 to $75 per linear foot, on average.

Do you tip cabinet installers?

In general, home service providers such as electricians, plumbers and contractors are professionals who don’t expect tips. They expect to do a job for you for the specific price they quoted. Of course, they may appreciate a tip for a job particularly well done or for which they’ve gone beyond what’s normally expected, such as completing the project early or under budget. Even better than a tip, it’s always appropriate to leave a positive review online after a good experience.

How much is custom cabinetry?

Custom cabinets can be built for any room, including bedroom closets and built-in armoires. Measured carefully and built precisely, custom cabinetry can increase storage and beautify any room. The national average for building custom cabinets ranges from $500 to $1,200 per linear foot. The cost is highly variable because there are so many styles, colors, glazes and other options. In general, the linear footage of the cabinets, the materials used to build them, and the cost of the labor will determine the cost. Solid wood costs more than plywood and wood veneer, and costs vary among different types of wood; maple and cherry cabinets are more expensive than pine. Glass-front cabinets can cost more, as can decorative hinges, handles and door pulls, which can cost $2-$45 each; choose carefully to stay within your budget and pull off the exact look you’re going for. Some carpenters also charge for installation, on average $100 per cabinet box. Additional molding and trim, such as crown molding at the ceiling, cost an average of $70 per 8-foot section, and adding finished ends to exposed cabinets averages $100-$200.
