One question many people have about our discount ready to assemble kitchen cabinets is how much it costs to put them together. It should be noted, we ship all of our RTA cabinets unassembled. As a result, with the amount of money you save over the regular retail prices, the costs to hire a contractor could easily still be less than what you would have paid to purchase your cabinets preassembled from a local retail store. Additionally, if you need help finding and selecting a contractor, we are able to recommend one in your area. To answer this question, it comes down to the rates a contractor charges to assemble and install the cabinets.
Obtaining a quote from a contractor gives you a figure to work with for having your discount ready to assemble kitchen cabinets put together and installed. Each contractor could provide you with a quote using different methods for estimating their fees. One might write up the quote, and bill you on an hourly rate, when they are unsure of the actual number of hours needed to complete your project. On the other hand, another might write up their quote as a flat rate, regardless of the number of hours needed to complete the project. In cases where you have quotes using both methods, an experienced contractor should be able to assemble a cabinet in about 20 minutes, on average. You are able to use this figure to calculate whether you can save money by hiring the flat rate contractor, or the one that is going to bill you by the hour.
