Does anyone know of a website that offers home improvement deals?

Question by splattercheese: Does anyone know of a website that offers home improvement deals?
Dealnews.com has a similar setup to what I’m looking for but they don’t seem to have much in the way of home improvement. If there is no such site perhaps a few separate websites that have good deals for specific parts of a home, like bathroom, kitchen, yard/landscaping?
I have tried googling home improvement deals and end up getting mainly just advertisements for home improvement companies, dealnews.com actually has people snooping around the web for decent deals on things. But I can’t seem to find a home improvement site that does the same.

The ads say that they include solid oak cabinets and granite countertops (with certain specifications as to cabinet size and linear feet of counter), as well as demolition and installation. (This is in Southern California, San Gabriel Valley area.)
Also interested in the $ 2995 bathroom remodel ads if you have experience with those.

What they offer you cabinet wise is the stock oak cabinets..here is a pic of them. Usually this is what they offer:

If you are renting or trying to stay on a tight budget, it’s not such a bad solution. But if you are trying to fix up your home to re-sell, I find it hard for you to get the money back in the sale. Buyers want to see nicer cabinetry and natural stone or quartz counter tops. Have fun with your remodel!

As someone who is in the construction industry and who has remodeled kitchens let me first ask:

What is the size of your kitchen i.e.: square footage?
What type of finish do you want? Hardwood, painted MDF etc.
What type of counter top: formica? Corian, stone, butcher block, concrete
Will there be any modifications to existing cabinetry: extensions, appliance moves, electrical work?
What type of hardware?

Your best bet is to contact local contractors (to you) and solicit bids and ask for names and numbers of their satisfied customers. I ALWAYS provide names of my previous customers to potential ones, any contractor who doesn’t is shady.

I get 100% of my work through referrals and I have more work than I can handle now.

I would get on craigslist and search out tradesmen that specialize in kitchen remodels. Before I did that I would go to Lowe’s, Home Depot, or any reputable cabinet supply house or maker and have them draw a plan for your kitchen and provide you with quotes on the cabinetry.

With that in hand I would approach the tradesmen and ask them for a labor price only. On top of that I would ask for nothing less than three references and I would do more than just talk to them on the phone. I would ask them if you can come and see the work that was performed.

Finally, I would never ever ever EVER give a contractor any money in advance. You will all ready have purchased the cabinets and will just be paying for their labor. If anyone asks you to justify that, you have to ask yourself, “does your boss pay you on Monday at the beginning of the work week or does he pay you on Friday AFTER your work is done”? Don’t pay a contractor until you are completely satisfied with their finished product.

I can also provide you with guidelines for what the renovation should cost for flooring, electrical, or any other project you plan to take on in the kitchen.

Here are a couple of links to some of my most recent work.

My parents used Sears to remodel their kitchen and it turned out great! It was a very unworkable kitchen before with a ton of cabinetry but little counter space. It now not only looks great but is very workable. I believe they did have a bit of trouble getting the exact appliances they wanted and did have to go to lowe’s or something but it all worked out in the end. Good luck!
