Your first payment is due at the closing, it's 50% of the total cost. This allows us to order your cabinets and other materials that we will need at the start of the job. Your second payment is going to be 25% of the contracted amount, which is due once your cabinets have been installed completely. After that, your third payment is in two parts. 15% is due until service tasks are finished. Then the last final 10% is paid. Service can consist of minor details like a cabinet door has been reordered, some touch-up paint needs to be done, some hinges need to be aligned.
Not all businesses use these payment terms. There percentages may be different. It's definitely a question to ask while in your free consult with the company.
It's best to budget the full cost of the project up front. This way you will not panic half way through. Most of our clients pay via check. If you are starting to budget now, put a certain percentage away in savings that accumulates within the time that you want to get your kitchen or bathroom remodel done. If you are ready now, you can schedule a free consult to get an estimate.
