You Talk A lot About Being An Expert In Kitchen Remodeling – Why Should I Care?

General contractors are great. In fact, the owner of One Week Kitchens® started out as a general contractor. But we realized that PA homeowners who needed to upgrade their kitchen were often conscious of two things: time and money.

The problem with a general contractor boils down to a few key elements, not the least of which is the use of untrained and unskilled day laborers to save on labor costs. They are also unfamiliar with custom cabinetry, the latest installation techniques, or the newest technology. Honestly, the vast amount of choices, technology, fixtures and products is overwhelming and general contractors just don’t have the time to keep up with them all. We – as specialists – are different. All we do is Kitchen remodeling for areas like Allentown, Danville, Kingston, and many other areas in Northeast Pennsylvania.

Our focus on kitchens and only kitchens has allowed us to streamline the process of remodeling a kitchen to the point that we can do a full remodel in as little as a week. We only use HIGHLY TRAINED EXPERT INSTALLERS that use our proprietary and proven system that minimizes waste, mistakes and re-work.

Bottom line: you get the kitchen you want at a fraction of the price and in as little as a week.

How Do You Remodel A Whole Kitchen In A Week?

Using a streamlined installation process, paired with our highly experienced installers, remodeling a kitchen in as little as one week is not as difficult as it sounds. Our installers have been remodeling kitchens and bathrooms for many years and they know what to expect. If they run into a problem, they don’t panic or stop for hours to think about it. They just fix it. Our installers won’t start your remodel until all of the products are in our warehouse, making sure that we won’t leave your home torn apart for weeks while we wait on materials to arrive. You may find it hard to believe that most of our kitchen remodels are finished in a week (this includes flooring, custom cabinetry, and countertops), but once you see our installers working, you will understand just how we get the job done.

Do You Sell Appliances?

No, we do not have appliances for sale at our showroom in Forty Fort or Quakertown, but we can make recommendations. We will also coordinate the delivery of your appliances with your kitchen installation and install them. Just make sure our designer gets the dimensions of your new appliances before he completes your kitchen plans.

Why is a One Week Kitchens® Remodel less than a typical remodel?

Because One Week Kitchens® installs so many kitchens every year, we’re able to purchase and produce materials for less. These savings are always passed on to our customers. And because of our one-week installation, overhead (labor) is kept to a minimum resulting in ever greater savings.

Understand that the major cost factor in any home improvement project is the labor. By keeping our labor rates to about one week we cut the costs of a traditional kitchen remodel in Pennsylvania by thousands. Think of it this way. Assume two of our technicians – who are highly trained and highly experienced – show up to remodel your kitchen cabinets – and they’re done in a day. Assume an astronomical labor rate of $100 per hour for an eight hour day. That’s $1,600 total labor charge.

Now look at the other way. A general contractor in, say, Bloomsburg calls in a laborer to remove and demolish existing cabinets – this usually takes a day or two. Then they need to call in the cabinet guy. He needs to measure and build – now wait for cabinets to arrive. Make sure they are correct and not damaged – and then get the cabinet guy to install. Of course, now he has to wait for the plumber and electrician. So time to call the plumber, then the tile guy – oh, and then there is the electrician and sometimes even a carpenter. Of course the general contractor has to schedule all of this and hope that the sub’s show up on time and finish on time. All told – your labor costs could easily exceed $2,500 or more.
