Your kitchen remodel will make a big difference in the comfort, appearance and efficiency of your home. And you can be confident knowing we will handle every step in the process. Plus, all our work comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
The first thing we’ll do is talk with you to get to know your vision for your new kitchen. One of our kitchen and bath specialists will work with you and discuss options available in cabinetry, counters, flooring, backsplash, and design. We’ll then come to your home to take measurements and photos, which will help us provide accurate design options and pricing.
When the design is finished, we’ll present a 3D rendering and elevations. A retainer is collected at this stage of the process. After that, it’s time for fine-tuning the design to make sure it fits your unique vision. From there, you can choose the finishes, cabinetry style, countertops, and other specifics. Once that’s completed, construction can begin. Only Bray & Scarff installers that we have certified – and who are certified by the manufacturers – will do the job. We’ll manage every step to ensure your new kitchen is all you hoped it would be, on time and on budget.
A small kitchen of approximately 100 sq. ft. with good materials can cost $25,500. A large kitchen of approximately 200 sq. ft. with the best materials can cost $105,000+. Please click for a chart with more details.

You will be assigned one project coordinator for your project. He or she will schedule and coordinate the plumbing, electrical, carpentry, permits, etc., and will be your main point of contact.
A designer brings different skills to the project than a builder or architect does. Ours have designed over 20,000 kitchens.
Look for a contractor who is bonded, insured, properly licensed in your state, and provides a limited lifetime warranty on their work. Bray & Scarff has all of these, and is a member in good standing of the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating.
