With so many excellent custom kitchen remodeling services offering high-quality countertops, there is little reason, if any, to buy them from a big box store. Don’t get me wrong, big box stores are a great place to shop for a multitude of things, it just so happens that kitchen countertops aren’t one of them.
In today’s post, your trusted Kitchen Remodeler The Kitchen Store gives you a few reasons why it is always better to buy from a specialist rather than your neighborhood superstore.
They Work With Sub-Contractors
Big box stores sub-contract their fabrication and installation work to other companies so you are never sure about who you are actually working with and if they are even a reputable company. While sub-contracting is not necessarily a bad thing, for something as important to your kitchen as your countertops, it is always better to go directly to your local kitchen remodeling expert to source your countertops from them directly.
Selling Countertops Just for the Sake of Having Them
Big box stores want to be first on your mind when it comes to your home improvement needs. While they are definitely a convenient place to shop where you can buy everything you need for a kitchen remodel, you have to remember that they sell a ton of different products and countertops are often an afterthought or something they carry just for the sake of having them.
A Specialist or Fabricator Will Often Have Better Prices
In addition to having better quality products and more skilled workers that know everything there is to know about countertops, a local fabricator will often have better prices as well. If you purchase your kitchen countertops from a big box store you will probably pay a mark-up of 10 to 30 percent. You have to understand that large chains make deals with local suppliers and try to pay them as little as possible and it is not because they want to pass on those savings to you, but mostly they want to maximize their profits.
