We live in a self-owned condo which is on the fourth floor of an seniors lodge. We are allowed to make inner changes. We wish to pull out our full 30" electric stove and install two drawers with a ceramic four burner electric top four inches lower than the existing cupboard in order to install an over-the-stove microwave with the proper 19" allowance. Also we will need to tile about 24 inches of white 4" wall tile and the 4" edge around the stove top.My questions are: 1. Do you have people in my area (South Surrey, BC) whom you would suggest could do this work.2. Without appliances do you have a suggestion of cost / hour I should expect to pay or should I ask for a contract price?Thank you so much.Bobby McLeod (Mrs)
I have just scoped out the stove top and microwave.
Welcome,I will do my best to help you with your problemYou should definitely get a firm contract price for this work. There are not likely to be any unforeseen problems with what you describe so any contractor should be able to give you a firm price with all the details spelled out. You should get as many as 3 quotes so you can get a good idea on cost.

I need to know a baseball figure for what I should pay - I am totally out of my field.Thanks.
I'd really like to help you with pricing info but I'm afraid my ballpark estimate won't be very useful for a number of reasons. They include: quality of the cabinetry, the price differential between labor costs where I am (Suburban Boston) compared to where you live. The quality of the tile. The price of tile can range from few dollars a square foot to $20+ dollars per tile. I never quote a job without looking at it. But with all those caveats in mind my best guess for a job like this with mid priced quality materials would be around $2,000. I would suggest you get some estimates from local contractors. They typically won't charge for estimates (and neither does the referral service I mentioned). This is the only way to get a realistic idea of what it will really costRick41079.7935971065
Thank you. It was an excellent beginning for me. Now I can save about 10% more than what you suggested and I will perhaps be OK! Really needed that help. Again thank you.
