Frequently Asked Questions

How much will is cost to remodel our kitchen?

Kitchens are like most anything else that you purchase in this world: the costs are entirely dependent on the price of the materials chosen and the complexity of the job. The industry rule of thumb is to consider 10-20% of the house's market value when estimating a kitchen remodeling. It is good to keep in mind that a remodeled kitchen is an investment that will increase the value of your home. We offer products at many different price levels, to fit your budget.

How long will it take to remodel our kitchen?

Every job brings its own schedule. A small job will take less time to complete; larger or more complex jobs take more time. In some cases, the longest part of the process can be the selection stage where you decide what finishes, what colors and what style of cabinets you want. In addition to the cabinet choices, decisions on countertops, appliances, back splashes and flooring also need to be made. Once those decisions have been made, we order the cabinets and begin making arrangements. Cabinets usually take approximately 2-8 weeks to be delivered. When the cabinets arrive, we begin work in your home, coordinating the tasks of the installers, electricians and plumbers. We use our own in-house installers, so we are in control of the scheduling and completion of your project. Although at times there may be delays as the scheduling of one type of labor may depend on the completion of another, you can be sure we will be attentive through to the completion of your project. Your designer will work with you from the inception to the completion of your project.

What brands of cabinets do you install?

We carry a wide range of custom and semi-custom cabinetry in a variety of styles and price levels. The brands we offer are Rutt Handcrafted Cabinetry, Wood-Mode Custom Cabinetry, Brookhaven by Wood-Mode, Signature Custom Cabinetry, Medallion and Silverline by Medallion. We have chosen these companies because they have a proven track record for quality and longevity.

What happens to our old cabinets, sink and fixtures when you replace them?

Upon your request and with your assistance/guidance, we will remove the items and install them elsewhere in your home or property. If you opt not to keep it and not to donate the material, we will dispose of them for you.

Can you reface my old cabinets?

We are primarily involved in the remodeling of kitchens, so we do not reface cabinetry. There are a number of companies in the Cleveland area who can perform this service for you.

What brands of appliances do you sell?

We are dealers of numerous appliance manufacturers, both built-in and free-standing, please refer to our products page for a list of these manufacturers and brands.

What is a design fee and why should I pay you for this service?

A design fee works to 'reserve' our services, assuring your priority and quality. The design fee is ultimately applied to the total cost of your kitchen remodeling project.

Can I keep the design plans?

Throughout the design process, you will be provided with various drawings of your kitchen, which include detailed floor plans. The plans will not be released to you until a contract has been signed. Once your project has been purchased, we release your floor plans to you.

How long have you been in business?

We were founded in 1933. Our first location was in the Terminal Tower Arcade. We were the original tenants of the space and remained there for 54 years. We then moved to our present location 0f: 19560 Center Ridge Rd., Rocky River, Ohio in 1987. The Cleveland Tile and Cabinet Co. is one of the oldest and most respected Kitchen and Bathroom remodeling companies in Northeast Ohio.
