Just as when a house is first built, a kitchen remodel requires the talents of many different individuals. Flooring, cabinetry, countertops, plumbing, electrical, and appliances may all come from the same contractor or different subcontractors. Who will be involved in your kitchen remodel depends on several factors, but here are some of the possibilities.
General Contractor/Kitchen Remodeler
A general contractor or specialized kitchen remodeler may do part or all of the work themselves, or they may subcontract to certified professionals for certain things like electrical or plumbing. There is a balance required that only an exceptional kitchen remodeling company will be able to maintain.
It is important that they complete most of the work themselves to save on labor costs and stay within budget, but they also need to make sure that they are hiring trained professionals for certain tasks like electrical and plumbing. This way you know that you are getting a functional, codes compliant kitchen remodel.
It is very likely that you will need an electrician during your kitchen remodel, especially if you are moving or adding outlets, moving appliances, or switching to electric appliances. A certified and trained electrician is the best person to handle all of the wiring needs. They will also be able to tell you if your electrical system needs to be upgraded to handle upgraded appliances.
A certified plumber is another important person on your kitchen remodeling team. If you are switching from electric to gas appliances, you are going to need a plumber to run a new gas line to the area the appliance will occupy. You may also need additional plumbing services if you are installing a new garbage disposal, faucet and hardware, or other accessories.
