Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to update my kitchen and I'm not sure exactly what I want yet, can you help me?
Absolutely! Give us a call at to talk about options over the phone. We can discuss your needs, talk about our services and the process. You may wish to just update your cabinets and countertops, or decide that you really need to go deeper and update flooring, walls, windows, plumbing, move electrical, lighting and more. We can help in either case. We are licensed general contractors with skilled designers in our showroom that can assist you to see options and make selections.
What parts of town do you work in?
We work in the Portland Metro Area of Oregon. We primarily work in Portland, Beaverton, West Linn, Lake Oswego, Tigard, Tualatin, and the Clackamas area.
I live in Washington. Can you help me?
Unfortunately, no. We are licensed in Oregon only, and we install all of our own cabinetry, so we would not be able to take on your project in Washington.
I would like to purchase cabinetry only and install it myself or hire someone to install it. Is this fine?
We install all of our own cabinetry. We do not offer cabinets without installation. This is the only way that we can ensure it is installed to the highest industry standards and also allows us to offer a lifetime warranty.
I would like to add-on and match our existing cabinetry, do you offer this service?
No. Our services include completely removing your existing cabinetry(when applicable) and installing new cabinetry. In many homes, this will include full service remodel management with flooring, countertops, lighting and appliance updating.
