What Does a Kitchen Reno REALLY Cost?

It’s Monday morning, you’re in your kitchen getting your coffee started, your kids’ breakfast made and thinking about dinner tonight. Taking a step back, you look around your kitchen, and for the umteenth time you think “I really need to change this”.

Sound familiar? Of course it does. We spend so much time inside of our kitchens: It’s where we plan our days, cook our meals and talk with our loved ones. We like to think the kitchen is the “heart” of the home, in which everything in our day to day life flows through. However, the kitchen is also the space we as homeowners often think about tearing apart, remodelling, adding on to and completely renovating.

So what’s holding us back from having our dream kitchen? Ask any homeowner itching for a reno and they’ll all say the same thing: Money.

But it’s not just a matter of getting the funds together. Call any home renovator in Calgary and you can get a quote delivered for a renovation or remodel, but are you getting the real cost? Contractors have a knack for hiding fees, glossing over the finer details, and skipping steps on everything from material costs to labour fees.

At C Brannon Construction, we’ve been striving to clear up a lot of misconceptions on the real costs of a kitchen renovation. In fact we’re not just going to tell you everything you need to know, we’re going to show you in the infographic below:

Don’t let the numbers scare you. Regardless of what any general contractor will tell you, these are the kind of numbers you need to consider when it comes time for a kitchen remodel. And while these numbers can change based on a myriad of factors (Size of your kitchen, material preference, etc), you need to make sure that the quote you’re seeing from a General Contractor is taking into consideration the following:

  • Design
  • Permits
  • Demolition
  • Materials
  • Trades involved
  • Cleaning
  • Disposal Fees
  • Project Management

At C Brannon Construction, we ensure all of the costs are presented up front, with plenty of consultations with you before work begins to avoid hidden costs or budget overruns.

Kitchen designs are ever evolving and we’d love to share some of the awesome things we can put into your home. Take a look at our video detailing some of the cool gadgets, details and pieces we can put into your remodel.
