Why Remodel Your Kitchen?

Many kitchens in NYC are very outdated.  In some cases, kitchens can be in such disarray that cabinets can even fall apart which can cause personal injuries (yes, we’ve seen this happen before). Homeowners should consider remodeling their kitchens for both safety and personal satisfaction.

A functional, newly-renovated kitchen will also increase your property value, which makes your investment worthwhile in the long run.

OUR PROCESS

Design

The team at Golden Talon Construction starts every kitchen remodeling project with a thorough conversation about your goals. Our interior design recommendations are offered at no charge to our customers to help inform your choices.  

First, we go through inspirational photos to fully understand what your style and design preferences are. 

Then, we brainstorm new layout options, explore possible finishes and color combinations, and review your budget to make sure all goals are aligned.

Our cabinet and countertop designer will also come free-of-charge to take measurements and provide a mockup. This way you will have a crystal clear idea of what your kitchen looks like and make changes before the actual renovation starts.

Materials

Golden Talon construction supplies cabinets, countertops, and sinks at a competitive price. However, you are not bound to purchase from us. 

You have full control of where to source the materials. 

We will make recommendations based on our years of experience. 

We are willing to personally shop with you for one day to help you decide on materials.

Our goal is to help you get great deals on the materials that you look for, not to make a profit from the materials you purchase.

Installation

Golden Talon Construction is a well-trained team with integrity and strong work ethic.  

After renovating more than 100 kitchens in a wide array of conditions, we’ve built up our expertise and skills to solve any problem that may arise throughout the renovation. 

“Quick” and “smooth” are the two words our customers used most when describing their experience working with us.  

Whether it’s a small project such as replacing your countertop or backsplash, or a full gutted remodel, we are meticulous about details and make sure everything looks flawless and high-end.

Our kitchen remodels can take between 2-3 weeks to completely finish. Here’s our project timeline:

  1. Protect areas that will not be part of the project
  2. Demolish and remove debris
  3. Framing (including setting up temporary lighting, rough plumbing, and electrical work)
  4. Cover the walls with drywall; cover the floor with subfloor plywood
  5. Apply taping and compound to drywall, sand and prime once dry, and ultimately paint the walls
  6. Install the flooring
  7. Install cabinets, countertop, and backsplash
  8. Install sink and faucet
  9. Install lighting
  10. Install trim around perimeter of the floor
  11. Final walkthrough & touch-up.

Parts of a Remodel

Golden Talon construction provides extremely competitive pricing on kitchen cabinets including  regular shaker cabinets,  flat acrylic finish cabinets,  glass cabinet doors, and high-end custom cabinets such as fabuwood cabinets.  But you are not bound to purchase from us. 

White cabinets are still very popular. But colors such as greys, greens, and blues,  are coming into style. Check out another blog we have on the top 2020 design trends.

Golden Talon construction supplies extremely competitive pricing on countertops from granite to quartz.  

Quartz countertop has won people’s hearts because it’s stylish, easy to clean, durable, and, most importantly, affordable.⁣

Granite is another popular choice because it’s easy to maintain, durable, and there are hundreds of designs available. 

You can choose to have no backsplash to save money.

But if you have extra budget, tiles and stones are popular backsplash choices.

Check out mosaic tile and subways tiles we have installed for our clients.  

Golden Talon Construction provides various sink options including D shape, square, double, and farmer etc. We will help you choose the best fit for your overall design style.

There are hundreds of faucet options. Golden Talon Construction supplies faucets but based on our observation, it’s much cheaper if you shop online. We would recommend you to check out build.com and amazon.com. If you find something you like, we are alway willing to serve as a second eye to help you make an informed decision.

It’s ultimately up to the overall design.

You have many paint options from basic whites to darker more aggressive tones.

Well painted walls will definitely make your kitchen look fresh and appealing.

There are many options for different styles of a kitchen. 

Depending on the design, a modern kitchen can go well with large format tiles,  laminate, and hardwood.

Classic designed kitchens look great with regular ¾ inch hardwood.

No matter what your heart desires,  we will help turn your vision into reality.

There are three types of trims:  plastic PVC, MDF board, and regular wood.  Plastic PVC never rots. MDF boards are more affordable but not as durable as plastic PVC. Regular wood (pine and oak) are the most durable trim but cost the most. 

Premium quality windows are more energy-efficient and will bring down your utility bills. 

It helps keep your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Another benefit the premium quality windows have is to improve soundproofing.  You will more likely hear less noise from the outside if you install high-quality windows.

I genuinely cannot underestimate how lucky I feel to have found Adrian & Golden Talon Construction! Adrian is punctual, incredibly reliable, respectful, friendly and honest -- everything you want in a contractor / someone you're going to invite into your home! Plus, from what I can tell he treats his employees really well, which makes me feel even better about the whole process. My kitchen turned out better than I could have imagined and completely on time. Adrian gave me an estimate that was 1/2 the cost and 1/2 the estimated construction time of other contractors, in a way that almost made me nervous. I thought maybe he was good to be true? But it turns out he's not! So soon he'll be redoing my bathroom too 🙂
