Cost factors of a cabinet removal project
The cost to remove cabinetry ranges widely (as seen in our price range above) and that’s because there are quite a few factors that can raise or lower the price.
For example, your cabinet removal cost could increase if:
- Your kitchen features difficult configurations. If your kitchen cabinets are unusually deep or high, it can make the demolition process more complicated, which typically increases labor costs. Additionally, if your kitchen has multiple gas lines that need to be carefully avoided or has a significant amount of appliances that need to be protected, this can increase the complexity of the job.
- You have a particularly large kitchen. The larger the kitchen, the more work typically needs to be done, which will increase the cost and time of the job.
- You also need countertops and appliances removed. The more work you need done to your kitchen, the more the job will typically cost. For example, if you want your cabinetry removed as well as your countertops and appliances removed, you’ll likely pay more than you would if you only needed your cabinetry demolished and removed.
- Mold, asbestos or lead is found. If any mold, asbestos or lead is found during the demolition, extra time and care will need to be taken to have it thoroughly removed. This will increase the time, materials and labor costs associated with the job.
Finding the right demolition contractor
There are tons of contractors who will be willing to take on your cabinet removal/demolition job. Beware, though, not all contractors are equal in skill and/or honesty.
To ensure that you’re getting the right contractor for your job, follow these tips:
- Get 2-3 quotes from different contractors. Review the quotes with each contractor in depth and ask what is involved in the price they give you (p.s. Make sure they provide the quote in writing). Ask about clean up, removal, etc. to ensure everything you need them to handle is included in the price they quote you (and not hidden fees that will skyrocket the price later).
- Ensure that the contractors are licensed, insured and bonded in the state of Arizona. Ask each contractor to provide the documentation needed to confirm that they are qualified to perform the job.
- Check reviews on sites like BBB, Google and Yelp. Steer clear of any contractors who have an alarming number of negative reviews.
