Default Has anyone heard the century kitchen & bath commercials on 95.1?

the one where for whatever reason the girl spokesperson seems to make a solid attempt at talking you out of a kitchen remodel?

maybe they are tired of people getting sticker shock and running away. so they let them know up front to not expect an $800.00 kitchen remodel.

that doesn't make any sense.

you don't hear commercials where they go "hey our shit is expensive and going to take forever" anywhere else.

set the expectation after you get the customer in the door, don't scare them all away before they show up

We'll be paying off our kitchen remodel for about three years. And we weren't that thrilled with the work done. It was C+ work done for A pricing. By the time it was all done, we didn't feel like squabbling with them.

it sounds like they are setting some blunt expectations. I agree not the best customer approach, but I think construction companies thrive more on word of mouth from friends/family based on their workmanship.

Honestly, they aren't really lying, chances are it will take longer and cost more. Its the unforeseen surprises the homeowner nor the builder know about until demo work begins.

We had our kitchen gutted, kitchen floor pergo removed and replaced with hard wood, family room hard wood floor refinished, and our laundry room redone. It was about $25k for everything. We paid $5k in cash and borrowed $20k from my parents to be paid back in 3 years.

My wife found this company on Facebook via some Bartlett Mom's page. Not only did they do mediocre work, but they hosed us on $600. In the quote it had the backsplash install included in the price. But it wasn't in the contract that we signed. Sure, shame on us for making sure it didn't move from the quote to the actual contract. We said they should honor it as it was in the quote, but they told us too bad.
