Frequently Asked Questions 2019-05-31T16:59:05-04:00
Can I work with my own builder or contractor to perform the work and purchase the cabinets and design services from Inde? 2016-10-18T09:15:48-04:00

Yes!

We are happy to work with you and your builder/contractor to both design and supply your cabinetry for a remodel or new home project. You have the option for us (Inde) to install the cabinets or you can choose to have your chosen builder/contractor install them. We will coordinate with their schedule and meet with them to review the final design so that they have all of the information they need to complete their work.

How do you determine how much a project will cost? 2015-05-29T15:59:37-04:00

Broad price ranges are especially evident in kitchen and bathroom remodel projects.  This is because every home is different and because the product and materials selected by the homeowner greatly impacts the cost of a job.

The following is how we develop an estimate

  1. We listen closely to your wants and needs to define the priorities and objectives of your project.
  2. We take measurements of your existing space and of the proposed design to create a “scope of work”.
  3. We estimate “product allowances” based on your individual style and budget.
  4. We estimate the contracting costs based on your initial scope of work.
  5. We add #3 and #4 together to factor your “project estimate.”

*It is important to note that your project estimate is based on estimated product allowances.  The final contract price is based on your final selections.

What is a “product allowance”? 2015-05-29T15:59:50-04:00

Product allowances are what we use to help determine a project estimate.  This provides you with a budget so you can determine the feasibility of your project before diving too deeply into selections.

It is common for us to include product allowances for items such as plumbing, flooring, cabinetry and countertops.  We include product allowances that match your style & budget and provide you with a realistic view.

For example, if you mentioned that you love the look and durability of quartz countertop we will include an allowance based on that statement, rather than an allowance based on laminate. We will always give you a realistic allowance amount to eliminate as many surprises as possible.

What is “scope of work”? 2018-02-09T16:31:36-05:00

The scope of work is a written outline of the work that is to be performed.  The scope of work is used as a reference throughout the project to help ensure that all parties’ expectations are in alignment.

How accurate is the “project estimate”? 2015-05-29T16:00:11-04:00

The only thing that would change your contract price would be your final material selections and change request that may be executed during the project.

How long does an average project take to complete? Kitchen vs. Bath 2016-10-18T09:15:58-04:00

?

Project timeframes vary depending on the specific scope of work.  Structural changes like moving walls and mechanical changes like relocating plumbing often extend the timeline.  We can work with you to determine a realistic timeframe based on your project specifications.

Do your contractors work directly for you? 2016-10-18T09:15:58-04:00

Yes!

We employ a full time project manager, field supervisor, and one of several lead carpenters to complete every job.  We also have available to us licensed plumbers, electricians, and contractor partners for larger projects.


Are you insured? 2016-10-18T09:15:58-04:00

Yes!

Yes, we are insured. We carry general liability and worker’s compensation insurance.

Do customers have to purchase everything through Inde? 2018-02-09T16:07:37-05:00

Short answer – no.  We strongly recommend purchasing all other elements through us, but we do recognize that there exists an enormous amount of product choices and we may not have the exact item you are looking for.

How does Inde compare price wise against other kitchen and bath stores? 2016-10-18T09:15:58-04:00

We are extremely competitive as far as pricing and lead time.  Because every project is different we encourage you to give us a call to schedule a consultation with a Designer who can walk you through the individual cost factors of your project. Schedule a consultation today!
