More Frequently Asked Questions
More of the questions we are asked most often at Lang's Kitchen & Bath. Contact us for more information.
I have my own installer; do you just sell the product?
Yes, you can solely purchase products from us. In that case, we recommend meeting directly with your installer prior to finalizing and ordering materials. Alternatively, we can design the space and supply the materials to your own installer, who would then complete the job.
How long will my kitchen or bath project take?
The design stage can be completed in as little as a few meetings or it can go out several weeks. The remodeling phase begins on the first day of your project schedule, which is generally the rip out. The length of the remodeling phase depends on the size and complexity of your job, but it typically takes between six and eight weeks for a kitchen and four and six weeks for a large bathroom. Factors, such as unforeseen issues found after construction began or installing intricate tile work, can also impact the timeline.
When you finish my project, what state will my home be in?
At the end of each working day, our crews will spend time cleaning the project area to prevent dust and debris from infiltrating the rest of your home. Once the project is completed, the remodeled space is move-in ready. The project space will be cleaned and any debris, tools, and leftover materials will be cleared away.
What are the advantages of using Lang’s Kitchen and Bath over a general remodeling firm for my project?
We offer our clients a one-stop-shopping experience. You won’t have to go anywhere else to find top-quality products created by fine craftsmen, who specialize in kitchen and bath design.
Additionally, we have more than thirty years of experience in the kitchen and bath industry and are incredibly familiar with designing and installing a beautiful chef’s kitchen, a relaxing master bathroom, and many other spaces within the home.
Do you carry liability and workmen’s compensation insurance? Are all your workers licensed and insured?
Yes; and we provide proof of insurance during the permitting process. If you would like copies for yourself, we are happy to provide them.
Who is onsite managing my project on a daily basis and who is ultimately responsible for my job?
Lang’s Kitchen & Bath is ultimately responsible for the job. A lead contractor will be on site everyday to manage day to day activities and any issues that may arise.
What is your working day like?
Contractors usually start work between 8 and 9 am, but they may start either onsite or out obtaining materials for the job. Day to day their start time sometimes varies depending on customer needs.
Is there a warranty for your service or for the materials you will be using?
Lang’s honors and facilitates all manufacturer’s warranties, which go into effect upon delivery to the purchaser. We also offer a 1 to 5-year service warranty under normal, expected conditions. The details of the warranty are laid out in our contract.
How and where will tools and materials be stored if the job spans multiple days?
This depends on the job and space available. Some tools and materials may be kept in the work area or in a designated work space, like a garage or basement. Some of our contractors store tools and smaller materials in their truck or trailer, which is kept at the jobsite.
What choices will impact cost the most?
Room modifications, such as moving windows, changing doors, minor additions, changing all the flooring, extending into other rooms, or updates to bring your house to code will have the largest impact on cost. Certain product selections, especially countertops, can drive the price of the project; but our designers will work with you to find a suitable alternative that falls within your budget.
Should I create a back-up plan for my remodeling project?
We are the back-up plan! We’ll provide you all options for products and materials that fit within your budget and offer you a back-up plan as part of our process.
Will I have a dedicated team working on my job?
Yes, you will have a dedicated project team that includes the designer and lead contractor, who is there on a daily basis to manage the job. You will also have additional dedicated specialists, such as plumbers, HVAC contractors, and electricians, depending on the specific needs of your job.
What style do your designers specialize in?
Our team of designers has experience designing spaces in a variety of styles. We’re not limited to one style in particular, rather we let your style guide us in all design and product selections
How will you clean up at the end of each day?
Prior to beginning work, drop cloths are strategically placed to protect your home. At the end of the day, our crews will roll up the drop clothes and clean them offsite before the following day, broom sweep, and pack away tools, some of which may be left neatly stowed away within the jobsite.
