Kitchen Renovations FAQ

Kitchen renovation costs depend on several factors. The first consideration is the square footage of the space: comparing the size of your current kitchen to what you would like the size to be following the renovation. Additional factors may include any changes to or removals of walls, plumbing and electrical changes, flooring, cabinetry, tile work, countertops, and appliances.

Each of these factors has options in different price ranges and will impact the overall cost of the kitchen. Every kitchen we renovate is so completely different; we do our best to work with you and find the best fit for your budget.  

As general contractors working on your project, we have trusted, certified sub-trade contractors specializing in these areas that we bring in to complete the plumbing and electrical work.

We work with them throughout the renovation and maintain an open line of communication to ensure the plumbing and electrical work is completed to our professional standards.

While Rafter 4K does not make custom cabinets in-house, we do have connections with some amazing custom cabinet makers in the Okanagan who we would be happy to bring in as a sub-trade contractor and work with on your project.  

A building permit may or may not be required for a kitchen renovation, depending on the extent of the renovation. If you are simply planning on making changes to the cabinetry, countertops, flooring, painting, and tile work in your existing kitchen space, then a permit is not required.

However, any project requiring changes to existing buildings such as the removal or replacement of drywall, demolition of walls, and framing changes does require a permit.  

Yes, we are happy to install new appliances that are a part of one of our kitchen renovations.

Replacing the flooring in your home depends on the existing flooring and understanding that what you see on the surface may not be what is underneath; for example, the laminate you see may be laid on top of old hardwood or possibly asbestos. 

Contact us to discuss our process of safely uncovering these layers and for a free estimate!   

Depending on the extent of the renovations being performed and the stage of the project, you may be able to use your kitchen while renovations are ongoing. For example, if just cabinets and flooring are being replaced, your plumbing fixtures and appliances should still be functioning, along with there being some usable space.

However, if we are removing a wall to alter the space and taking out plumbing fixtures and appliances in the process, your kitchen will not be usable for at least a portion of the renovation. 

While there are certain steps we follow and aspects that remain the same, the process of each kitchen renovation is as unique as the kitchen itself. Starting with a vision and ending in a space that serves as the heart of your home, we would be happy to walk you through the process of a kitchen renovation during a consultation, so you know what to expect every step of the way.
