Before They Leave
Materials and Papers to Obtain During Construction
Before you begin enjoying your new kitchen, take the time to collect important phone numbers, manuals and extra materials. Being proactive now can prevent headaches down the road.
You’ll be in great shape if you take care of the following:
Manuals & Contact Information
Keep a "New Kitchen" folder in a safe, easy-to-remember place. File the following information inside:
Extra Parts & Materials
- Individual and company names and contact information for the designer and contractors with whom you worked.
- Any customer use and care manuals that came with the appliances and other products
- Invoices, sales receipts or other proof that you purchased the products and materials
- Warranty information
- Customer service contacts for the product manufacturers
- Model names and/or numbers
It never hurts to have a back-up. You may want to request extra cabinet hinges and pulls, paint, and backsplash or floor tiles, in the event that one is damaged later and the style has been discontinued.
