Jessica smiles and rolls her eyes. “I don’t expect you to, silly. I was more just wondering out loud. We are remodeling our kitchen soon and it’s something I’d like to know.”

Will nods. “I get it. It’s our home so we deserve to know what exactly’s going to be happening with it. Why don’t we Google it and see what we find?” he suggests.

Jessica shrugs. “We could do that. Or, we could take a look at the email with links that one contractor sent us. Maybe he has a ‘how to remodel a kitchen’ post and maybe a ‘kitchen remodel timeline’ one too.” She grabs her phone and starts searching. “Here it is!” she says.

Scope of work. This process is for a full kitchen remodel done all at once. You might just want to do the cabinets or flooring. Some people also choose to do their remodel in sections.

Damages. This can add some extra steps. If we spot any damages before or during the project, we’ll talk to you about how you’d like to handle it. We recommend fixing damages right away. They’ll only get worse and more expensive to fix.
