IKEA KITCHEN INSTALATION

Lee Sanchez was referred to me by a colleague from Remax. I had already designed my IKEA kitchen, which was a lot of work because the IKEA hardly helps at all. When I met Lee and showed him my purchase, the plan, and design, he added quite a few extra pieces that were missing, that I had never been told about it by IKEA. Only someone that understands what’s involved would know. Had I known beforehand that Lee could have done that part of the service as well; things would’ve been done much faster. It took me a long time to come up with the design and make sure that everything would fit and look great. It took Lee only 2 days to put my kitchen together with his helper. He did a fantastic job. His skills, expertise, diligence, and professionalism will satisfy even the fussiest customer. In an industry like home renovation it’s really hard to find referred contractors, as I’m sure we’ve all have our share of bad experiences. I can say that I refer Lee Sanchez with much confidence. I am a 100% satisfied customer.

Full Kitchen Installation

Lee did a phenomenal job on my condo kitchen and I would recommend him to anyone thinking of redoing a kitchen. First off, he took all the guesswork out of planning the kitchen, by helping me with the 3D design. He recommended several solutions to maximize my space using pre-designed IKEA cabinets and the finished design has worked out beautifully. As a result, ordering the kitchen was completely effortless. He did an excellent job taking down my old kitchen, organizing for re-tiling of floors, and finally built the new kitchen only in a matter of a couple of days.
His estimate was very clear and outlined exactly what I was paying for.
The end result is that I'm totally in love with the new kitchen. Thanks Lee!

Kitchen Design and Installation

After reading the previous recommendations on Homestars, we decided to give Lee a call. Now that the job is done we're glad we did.

He did a great job with the design. This made going to Ikea to place the order easy and hassle-free.

From putting together the cabinet to installing the counters, Lee went about his work with care and precision. Our design was a bit unusual, but Lee spent the time to make sure that all the nooks and crannies looked good. He was even okay when our puppy wanted to examine his nooks and crannies.

The new installation looks amazing. I am very satisfied with the job he did and would recommend him to anyone wanting an Ikea kitchen.

IKEA Cabinet Installation

We got three quotes, one from the IKEA recommended company, another from a Homestar company, and the third from the Ikea Kitchen Specialist (Lee). Not only was Lee the most affordable, he also gave a detailed itemized quote so you knew exactly what he was charging for what service. During the consultation, Lee came by the house and carefully measured and doubled checked our online IKEA kitchen plan before we ordered our cabinets. He helped us revise our order to make sure everything would fit.

When the over 140+ boxes and what seemed like thousands of pieces of hardware were delivered, I was doubly grateful knowing that Lee was going to put them all together. He and his crew arrived on time at 8am and put in long hours to finish our kitchen in three days. Being a 60+ year old house, our ceiling and walls are not levelled and he was able to customize the trim, level all the cabinets and made our kitchen look absolutely fantastic. Being a DIY'er, this would've taken me weeks and weeks of frustration to do the kitchen myself with half the quality.

Lee and his team were a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. We paid exactly what he quoted, not a penny more. He is honest, professional, and very personal. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a kitchen installer.

Full kitchen and two bathrooms

Lee Sanchez may be the best builder or tradesman I've ever worked with.

He quoted quickly and clearly on my job. He was extremely flexible and fair when my schedule and the scope of work changed.

And most importantly, he did excellent work. This guy knows Ikea components - he and his staff assembled and built all my Ikea cabinetry very skillfully.

The associated work - trim carpentry, painting, and plumbing - was very good. Excellent workmanship.

He is careful, works deliberately and thoughtfully, and communicates very well.

Also he's a good guy, and a very calm presence on a construction site. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Kitchen Reno

I had been looking around for appliances and a few gadgets for my kitchen, I thought it was time for an upgrade. I only went to ikea to grab a few nik naks and ended up buying all my appliances from there. The experience was great, easy shopping and the lady that helped me was very intelligent, overall very happy with the quality of products and the service. Would totally recommend ikea it's more than you think.
